I agree with the others that "Elders" in turn sounds cool, but the reasons just do not fit. Take myself for example, I read ATS everyday, but I rarely chime in at all. I honestly never checked what my post count is, I think it is only around 100 or so...
I lurked for a long time before joining too.

No, no ones opinion here on ATS is more or less valuable than any one elses...
I like the way you think.
Seriously though...you are right. We all have things to offer here and being here for many years doesn't necessarily add anything. We are all important pieces of this machine.

Well old timers, answer this if you will,.
Does it seem as if the new 2010 members seem to be posting blindly with out doing a search of their topic?
Or has this always been the case?

So you don't think that there is an untapped wisdom there at all?
I'm, only suggesting there is a resource here that could add a bit more
color, if you will, to the intelligence of ATS. I don't see how that would take anything away.
I do think that encouraging longterm members to continue to be active and participate is a great idea. If there is an untapped wisdom, it would manifest in the posts and threads these members continue to work on and share with the community...
