Member can be taken a couple of ways, so cheering might not be such a positive thing.

And "Guru" doesn't necessarily mean that either. Post counts get wayy too much attention at times. If I were to post something up, and a member with say, 20 posts followed up with something contridicting me, regardless of whether I'm right or not, it seems quite a few people would believe my post over the others.

I understand why, but I would hope people would research anything before applying it to their system blindly from anyone who gives advice. It's just a good idea to know what you are doing.

Not to get too off topic though..

Congratulations

Cool

I definitely agree, and it's one of the reasons I like this site. The mods and members here seem to be more focused on fair moderating and helping others than racking up points on some meaningless scale.

Geez, I'm a kiss-up even when I'm trying to avoid it.

Don't get me wrong though, I like to take a look at post counts on occasion (for example, I've been noticing me grow closer to 9500 all night, just 2 more posts ) but if I'm looking for answers to a pressing question, I'll post up, get responses, learn what I can, weigh the differences, google, read, man, and finally test a bit and implement.



Thanks for noticing the mods not being post mongerers (except me of course ).

Cool

I finally made it to member today.

I joined in 2001 but didn't have much time to devote to LQ. The last few days I have and find it addictive to help others.

I consider my skill level as intermediate. It was a drag having Newbie below my alias. One person even took offense at my answering his question!!

Love ya' LQ

After you have been here awhile, you start to see who knows what they are talking about. Even some of the newer posters can and do give good answers.
Like MasterC said, check up on any answer given to you. Even the best can make mistakes.
