Well KyoZero You have not been here that long and EVERYBODYS contribution level is publicly displayed. Both the Flag thing publicly and the Metal
award Semi privately in peoples public profiles.
What I was ranting about were those among us that feel so empowered by their status that they put it into their sig or build their avatar around their
I guess what it is that bothers me are those that wave their thing around as a status symbol...
Thats why the whole thing got moved to the profiles to begin with... At first I thought the site admin were just being overly polite to some of the
more sensitive members... but it as been a few months now and I can see that some REALLY DO wave the contribution around with a pride that says,
"Look at me in awe"
I am just ranting. I noticing something thought about it... thought to write on it... Really it was those that built their avatar around the
contribution level that inspired me... I mean they constructed their own artistic avatar and inserted their bronze status exactly in the same spot
where it used to be along with their "Stunning insight" beneath.
I looked at that and thought. "By god They enjoy showing off" Previously it was just in that persons sig but then they went the extra mile...
