patch -p0 < poster

Compiled In
(would this mean Newbie should be changed to Module?)

#<include poster.h>

I dunno. I'm kinda going for something that indicates the poster with a zillion posts has basically become one with LQ.

LQ Fixture
Permanent Resident
Inmate
Glued to LQ

Hyperthreaded.

life= /dev/null
time spent on LQ- tooo much
addicted to posting
dedicated contributer
infinitely wise

my favorites:

LQ-crew member
Linus'es henchman
hooked on LQ
tech support-er

How about Grandmaster, since it implies a high level of both experience and expertise just like in chess. Also, in the my 2 cents dept, maybe in addition to rewarding the veteran posters with a new title, perhaps the Member title could be elevated and a new, lower-level title could be introduced that would be in between Newbie and Member. For example:

Newbie = 0 - 29 posts
Intermediate (or whatever) = 30 - 499 posts
Member = 500 - 999 posts
LQ Addict / Guru = 1000 - 1999 posts
Grandmaster = 2000 or more posts

At least from what I can see in terms of numbers, out of approx 97,500 registered users there currently are fewer than 90 people with more than 1000 posts, and only about 170 people who have more than 500 posts. I don't know how many people are in the Newbie class, but I'd estimate that the Member class probably comprises at least 95% of all registered users, which to me is overly broad. Therefore I would think it would be useful to consider creating a distinction in 1 to 1000 range as well, since it would benefit a large group of people. That being said, I still love the idea of an optional "LQ Crack Monkey" for >5000 posts. -- J.W.

I'm closing in on 1000, but I'm neither an expert nor a guru.
Addict seems to work.

From http://thesaurus.reference.com/search?q=guru
authority, guide, guiding light, leader, maharishi, master, sage, swami, teacher, tutor

http://thesaurus.reference.com/search?q=expert
ace, adept, artist, artiste, authority, buff, connoisseur, doyen, gnome, graduate, guru, hot shot, master, maven, old hand, old pro, phenom, pro, professional, proficient, shark, virtuoso, whiz, wizard

http://thesaurus.reference.com/search?q=addict
aficionado, buff, devotee, enthusiast, fan, fanatic, fiend, follower, habitué, hound, junkie, nut, practitioner, zealot

How about LQ Enthusiast ?

But, it's more like LQ nut.

I kind of like... LQ Wizard as a choice for maybe 10k.. as a wizard is old and wise, been around for a while, etc. I would assume they have the option at that point as well though, between that, Guru and LQ Addict

well, as a st00pid n00b13 I feel compelled to add my 2 cents...

I think "life= /dev/null" is a great one I just started laughing when I read that one

I would like to see two new titles - "newru" for those of us who have just passed being newbies and 'hopefully are on the way to being gurus, and "gubie" for those who have been around linux for while but still have some basics to learn.

Additionally, I would like to see a 'newru' forum that might be less HOWTO oriented (not that I don't have a lot of "How do you ... ?" questions) and more "What is ... ?" or "Why ...?" type questions.

As I have learned to use the Internet to solve more and more of my problems, I have noticed there only seems to be two types of forums, mailing lists or chat sites -- newbie or pro -- nothing where those who are in between can comfortably fit.

That type of forum could end up becoming a WiKi linux manual.

Poof!!

This is 1000 for me.

Maybe it's like becoming a Sergeant in the Air Force. You don't get any more pay or any more benefits. They just expect more from you now and you can be blamed for more stuff.
