Why me?

Just because you occasionally write something that's worth me starring and flagging which may have pushed you into Gold?

I don't mean to bite the hand that feeds me, but is there any way I can opt to have the "Gold-Level Contributor" text taken off of the heading of each of my posts?

I don't mind the vertical line. If it was a colored vertical line alone, that would be a more subtle decoration on my mini-profile and that wouldn't really bother me (it even goes good with the blue
). But the heading on top of each of my posts is like saying "Hey, look at this guy, who has no life!"




Edit.... actually that text already doesn't exist on some of my posts.


So my question now I guess is, why is it sometimes there and sometimes not?



Wait.... now it's back again.


Now it's gone again.... Okay I'm not editing anymore, it's either there or it isn't. This is like Heisenberg's uncertainty principle.

I am one of those responders who doesn't start threads very often. I post a fair amount, and my stars to posts ratio is pretty decent. Less flags, because, again, I don't start threads often. I was a green back when they stopped using that system, and I have no idea where I would be now, though I often wonder.

I am thinking it will be a VERY long time before I am a silver, let alone a gold.

Congrats to all of the silvers and golds. Of course, I already knew you were all special. Take that as you will.

As far as I can tell it seems to be there when a post is below yours, but to not be there if yours is the last post in the thread.

Well like I said, it would be cool if I had the option to leave the vertical bar but turn off the text at the top of each post.


I'm sure moderators can sympathize with what I'm saying because you all don't use that "This is just my opinion as a member" box every time you post in a thread. After a while it just starts sounding pompous. I like being the underdog anyway.

Yeah but other people wont think its pompous, they will find it desirable and want to have it too, and Im pretty confident if the formula is something that people CAN manipulate to move themselves up in the ranks, I wont be having my border long.

Im not much of a thread starter, and I can already hear the hordes of status hungry ATS'ers coming displace me in the ranks and claim my silver border. And Im afraid I wont put up much of a fight. Perhaps I should just enjoy my claim to pixel driven fame while I have it.

Actually it's very simple....

You have to face south during a thunderous lightening and hailstorm while standing on one foot and sacrifice a yak with a knife made from the thigh bone of a virgin jackalope while singing I'm an Oscar meyer weiner in french.

Yes, it has to be French.

Don't ask me why.

Just has to be!

Everyone voted.

What?

Didn't you get the ballot in the mail?

And, the ballots were then generously tabulated at no charge....by, the Diebold Company.......

i think the boardering is ugly and kill's the overall look of the thread. it feels all chopped up. Almost too much attention is drawn these posts. The contributor header looks good though.
