Adrien:

When the old forum got hacked and couldn't be restored, Peter switched to this forum (different provider, I think).? It keeps track of your "status" based on the number of posts.? Note that Ron is a 'Senior Member' but poor old Gary is only a 'Full Member'.

You have a gold star (whatever that means) but your title is still newbie.

Jim

I think it counts in groups of 50, and I have 107.? I'm working for Senior Member, which I think is 200.

It doesn't seem to work when you do that! I was so hopeful! Your posts all numbered 27.
Also, it just doesn't seem fair that that sweet young thing, RON, is a SENIOR member. ;D

Wow, the lack of snow here in the East is definitely having an effect.? Look at what we are reduced to chatting about.?

Anyway, the number of posts counter isn't the number of that post, it appears to be the cumulative current total.? I went back and looked at some of my older posts and all of them have the current number.

So, while fredm8's counter on this thread is currently displaying as 27, he may have been at 22 (or less if he has posted other stuff in other threads) when he created those posts.

And, by the way, congratulations.  It sounds like you acquitted yourself well as one of the "real-skiers".  Glad all had a good time.

You're right, it is very, very sad what we are being reduced to!! Great minds brought low. Well, maybe the minds weren't so great to begin with. ;)
I had a great time skiing with the gang. However, the memory of that is wearing off and the jonezing has begun again!
Have a great new years

From what I can see, the forum software counts the TOTAL number of posts by a member, so I guess if I post this additional reply my count goes to 28 :-),

Then when I post something else, the count will increase again.

Ooops, didnt read the other posts which outlined the issue correctly.

Too much powder in Aspen, now back home with Supershapes in tow, wanting to ski Turoa in the Southern winter.

Just have to go indoors again.
