Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Noo! You cant take away my LQ Addict Status option!!!
FYI I'm not using it atm coz I'm celebrating getting 220.127.116.11 working.
Edit: Looking at the top 100 of the memberlist, there arent even many of us above 2000, and it depends what you want Guru to mean. Atm I think all above 4000 are Mods anyway. So maybe 2000+ is Addict/Guru, with current ones carried over.
I vote to keep all existing users with their current titles as they wish or give them choice of Sr. Member or LQ Addict and all new members who reach these plateau's to be affected. Then at 5k they have the choice of Guru, etc....
Distribution: Debian, Red Hat, Slackware, Fedora, Ubuntu
As it stands now, if you selected a usertitle it should remain intact. If you never touched it, it's now Senior Member. Moving forward, the rules will apply as in my first post. So far, this seems to be acceptable to everyone. If you would prefer something else, feel free to post here or contact me. Thanks.
I have seen too many boards with endless posts of "LOL" or "LMAO" just to increase post-counts and I find it rather meaningless; I mean Torvalds himself would have to make 30 posts to get past "Newbie" status on a Linux discussion board
I like the "Registered xxxx" line though because it gives a sense of continuity or history to a site.
But check out my top 100 link, that nearly lists all over 1000 posts, and that's the top 1/1316th of the members. Only 27 members top the 2000 posts marker. Just how exclusive do you want the highest title to be?

Were just adjusting to growth, that's how I look at it. :P
And regarding the 27 that have more than 2k posts, that's alot. For anyone who doesn't know, we now have 113 members with more than 1k posts each, with many closing in on that number as well. I think that is one of the main reasons for making this change, it is not going to get too common for those reaching 1k posts if consistent in a very quick time frame.
