It's the number of posts you've made. I became a senior member in about a week, I think, because I posted several times to a couple of threads.. I think the magic number is either 15 or 20. I am a member of another board that uses the same software, and since I don't post very often, I'm still a junior member, despite being a member since November or December.I wondered about that at first too! I couldn't believe I became a "senior member" so quickly. If you click on the symbol above the posting, on the left, with I think a question mark and a face, you can get more info about the person who posted, including how many times they've posted and when they joined the board. That can give you a better idea of how long someone has been around, if you're curious.
If you want a post to go up to the top, reply to the post. If the only thing you are doing is bumping up the post type in the word bump.Posts are listed with the post with the newest reply at the top.K.------------------I have no financial, academic, or any other stake in any commercial product mentioned by me.My story and what worked for me in greatly easing my IBS: http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/Forum17/HTML/000015.html
I think it is actually 30 posts and you move into the ranks of 'senior' contributor. Little point whether the person is 'junior' or 'senior' doesn't really say anything about the points they make or the advice offered. I was a senior contributor on the 'old' Parkview Publishing Board, left for a while, then registered here with new email and penname.
Nina your right, its 30 so I have just found out. Now I am a senior and I feel my age again *laugh*.But like you said it doesn't matter whether we are senior or junior we all have advice and we all share the same thing.I like this forum....have I said that before
