I think it's unfair too.

I've been a member on ATS for almost 5 years and
and this is the way I'm "rewarded"?

This makes me feel that I won't be taken seriously
when I post something.



Unfair.

As Woody Allen (The Woodman) would say....

"I'd never belong to a club that would have me for a member."


I believe that was Groucho Marx said that..


Yes it was Groucho Marx

I think some people are entirely missing the point (big surprise):

This is and has always been (the old bars) about CONTENT contribution not seniority.

I feel I stand correct rather than corrected. But I adore you just the same.

It has to fairly take into account Activity, not just number of years you have been here..
It would be unfair to give older members an upgrade is newer members in a matter of months have done twice as much content production.

Well if its all about content how will people know that if they don't read this thread?
What about all the "new" subscribers?
What will they think about me being a "novice"?

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

I guess longevity isn't part of the equation. I've been here a couple of weeks longer than you have. Authored over 2000 threads, over 30,000 posts but I'm not getting my nose bent out of shape because I'm "only" bronze.

I swear if ATS offered money to post, there would still be some that would complain that it wasn't enough.

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

Groucho said it first:
I don't care to belong to a club that accepts people like me as members.

WOW......I must say, once again you creators and staff of ATS have done something unbelievable and out of your way to thank members. I didn't think you would do anything else on the "250 event". You have listened to all and made a totally flawless system that incorporates all.


This is why I love this site, so again THANK YOU

EDIT to add: LOL, I love your "Cosmic" standing Skeptic....

Seriously do you people just like to cry. They cried about the 250 deal now they cry about this. If points and titles matter to you than IMHO your just sad. I think it’s a good idea. I am going to read post no matter what level a poster is on. While I know Sdog was only joking. Those who will no doubt only read and respond to posters in or above their level those people are sad also. :shk: People just enjoy your time here.

I like the idea of providing some incentives (if only virtual incentives) to put some thought behind posts.

At 10 000 posts a day, adding some more quality is a good thing.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.


Novice is not a bad word and I do not see why anyone would see this as a bad thing. If people really do care about this status, than maybe it will enspire to contribute more to ATS




NOVICE

noun 1. a person who is new to the circumstances, work, etc., in which he or she is placed; beginner

dictionary.reference.com...



Would you be saying that if you were labled
A novice?


Im just one step up from novice and Im a MOD and I just do not see the big deal
I suck at creating threads - and that is where you get the flags in order to raise the level.

Do you seriously care what the people who would judge you on something so trivial think about you?


Anyway.

I'm making a prediction here.

Admin will end up taking this away from us because we're not mature enough to handle it.

I think everyone needs to give the staff at ATS a round of applause. For real, they are great IMHO.

It says "Novice content provider" .. underneath of which is shows exactly how long you have been here.

So they would still see your a senior member in terms of time..

Honestly I don't think anyone, including new people, are going to be giving these tags much thought. Honestly, is it going to change what you say in your posts, what threads you partake in, who you befriend and talk to??

Certainly, I hope not. It's just recognition in regards to the quality of your content. Not a perfect system (I still want applauses taken into account) but it's a dang good system.

Besides, the old bar's where the same way .. the bigger the bar the better right? We didn't look down on the fellas with the wee little bars..

I was pleasantly medium sized bar.
