    List off some new titles for post counts

    Think the current user title assignment for post counts is dumb. Give me some suggestions for names that we really want and I will pick a few and surprise you.

    I saw someone with 94 posts labeled 'newbie'. To me that conveys an attitude of: "insiders get exalted; outsiders get dissed".

    I myself used to be a 'Lurker'. I thought that word correctly described my amount of participation.

    How do you come by that meaning?
    In fire and EMS? Check the Play Store for my current apps Code Log and Pumper calc.

    Which meaning did you mean? Regarding "lurker" -- I did not mean "someone waiting in concealment"

    Here's one definition: "In Internet culture, a lurker is a person who reads discussions on a message board, newsgroup, chatroom, file sharing or other interactive system, but rarely or never participates actively". Then the question becmes: "What does 'participate actively' mean?" For mysel, I'm o.k. with calling occasional participants 'Lurker' and calling active participants 'Regular'.

    Another: "(Lurkers) People who regularly read your updates, take a look at your photos but rarely comment or contribute to the conversation."

    Regarding "newbie" -- it's a matter of scale. If someone with nearly 100 posts gets labeled with a word that often means "an inexperinced newcomer" - to me that implies that it would take many many posts to "gain acceptance" into the group (of those "insiders" who assign these labels).

    I like newbie and regular. Other possibilities-rookie, veteran, professional. If you get over 500 posts, you should be an addict.

    Barnes & Nobles Nook HD+, rooted
    Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9", finally rooted
    Google Nexus 5, Elix-R rom

    I like addict. Although, I think most of us are addicts with less than 500 posts
