various rankings


I would like to know how you stop being a "Newbie" and when you attain various other rankings.

I believe you are ranked by the number of posts you make.

I have seen probably 10 threads like this, Why don't people use the search?

because we don't realize that the web site has a search feature, and this is easier than going and checking.

We also have a Site FAQ and searching for this question in Google would probably give you the answer. It also took 7 minutes (plus your posting time) to find the answer. Using the search function would take you less than a minute.

My vote is that we should have a standard answer for questions like this:

natm, thanks for the feedback. Is there a way we could make the search more noticeable in your opinion?

I dunno... maybe instead of the search button you could have a little box that you can type in to do the basic search.

a "little box" (LB) would be useful and a bit more obvious, and an "advanced search" button for all the options you can plug in. default (used by LB) should be as non-server-intensive as possible. under the main menu perhaps? still leave the search button there- perhaps it could say
"Advanced Search" instead.

PS XavierP- hahaha.

The "little box" feature you mention is planned for the next release. Thanks for the feedback.

man jeremy- am I ready for this next release. are the releases announced with great fanfare, or just quietly slipped into use?

The major release will be preannounced as it is such a large change. We're constantly changing the code though and most changes are not announced with much fanfare.

Any chance you might need some help beta testing?

We'll likely do beta testing at some point, but we're no where near that point yet.
