it is my personal oppinion that people with over 100 posts(4 hats) should gain a different colour coding from under 100 post members. As theis makes it clear who are geeks to goes trusted and regular members and also gives a mini reward of increased prestige of such acheivements. :) :tazz: :woot:

I think you must be confusing this Forum with somewhere else. Just to make it clear, the number of posts a member has counts for absolutely nothing at G2G. Your suggestion that post numbers are some indication of reliability or trustworthiness of a poster is nonsensical. Are you seriously suggesting that a member who has 500 posts, each one along the lines of "me too" is regarded more highly than someone with 10 posts that actually help a user with a problem? If you believe that is so, you are in the wrong place here. Remember - quality, not quantity.

It is too open to abuse. At one stage all GeekU students had a picture like

So lots of people signed up for GeekU, and made the site look bad because of what some of them did.

Also I have seen members with over 1000 posts and moderators with a lot less than that. It dose not mean any thing, it is what you say not what you do that makes you important. Those that are regular posters of good advice become staff. That is how I and others became staff members.

I think the replies here were perfect and this thread has now run its course.
