How does the forum hierarchy work, from Newbie through Member, Senior Member and Lifer?

Might just depend where you're looking from. By number of posts yes

But if you drive an ///M or Alpina then may be not - or a coupe or even for that matter fit a stubby or a wippey and that's before we get to engine size or E89 or number owned :lol:

But for me it doesn't matter - nothing to prove just like the crack form all you others who also have love for the Zed :thumbsup:

Thanks Marlon, my curiosity is satisfied.

Firebobby, you are confusing me with 'Beedub'.

I'd love there to be some kind of 'rep' or 'kudos' rating where you can thank other members for particularly good advice, knowledge or insight. The current system doesn't really mean very much at all.

A bike forum that I am on has this system.
Members can thank a post instead of replying with a thumbs up or whatever else.
Whoever has thanked the post is listed just under the post and a count is displayed under the users avatar.
This cuts down on the amount of pages that can end up on a thread.
The only downside I can see from this is your post count doesn't go up for thanking someone

A fine idea, but a number of us old folks enjoy whiling away the odd hour tapping on key boards and touch screens. Very therapeutic after a day at the mill. :wink:
Welcome aboard.
Oh and be sure you have a Whippy on your Zed. :thumbsup:
