    I just looked at one of my posts and found that I am a "Burning Chunk". Those who know me will gleefully fill in the "chunk of what", and given that they know me, I have to allow that I've probably earned their praise and/or opprobrium. This is kinda like Cub Scouts. What are the levels as your posts increase in number?

    A quick look at other threads will show what everyone is.

    Its a set # ehen you step up from firestarter... To burning chunk .... To, Well, I dont want to spoil it??? Keeps you guessing. The more you post. The more your "status" increases.

    Craig is the only one that knows what number of posts changes the thing. I wanted him to change mine to "blabbering old fool with too much time on his hands" when I got to fifteen thousand. Instead he made me a mod. :red:

    Oh, sooner or later you'll be promoted to "Sputtering Secondaries", then "Coaling Oldie", then "Dying Ember", and finally "Cold Ash". Then you get tossed out into the woods. It's easy to rack up 15,000+ posts. The real challenge (which many simply ignore) is to rack up 15,000+ posts where each of them actually says something. %-P Rick

    I know. Out of 17,000 I think I only actually said anything of use in nine of them.

    It's kinda like running up a down escalator, too. If you pause, you'll notice your numbers going backwards as posts are arbitrarily deleted.

    An interesting exercise: take your posts, multiply by five minutes (a randomly-chosen estimate of amount of time spent online per post), and divide by 60 minutes, then by 24 hours, then by 7 days, and you have the number of weeks of your life, round the clock, that you've spent on this site.

    Okay, I'm going to leave now and see if I still have children and a job and friends and a house and animals . . .

    Oh no...not true. Any posts that are deleted are quite intentionally deleted. Nothing arbitrary about it. Rick
