    I see a lot of people posting about how original member can still be earned for those that joined after the beta ended. It is nice to add this title but if you weren't signed up during the beta you can't really be an original member....

    I suggest that you still allow for original member status but how about add the word beta for all members on MP during the beta testing? so a beta account would then say Beta Original Member

    I doubt it really matters.... However why even award different status when the word original can be achieved for signing up today or actually in the beginning! The word original should mean a date you joined not points you earned...

    That offer of "Original Member" status was used as an incentive

    It really doesn't matter but Randy & his team would get more respect

    if they honored that come on to Beta responders (easily done)

    This is from the reply to my replying to the original invitation (that I can't find)

    "For your efforts, you will be awarded special recognition in the community (including a special limited edition "I'm An Original ... Member of MilePoint.com" t-shirt). But even more importantly, we hope you will gain a special satisfaction from knowing that you helped establish the cultural norms and values of what we all hope will become a model community"

    Being part of Beta was so much fun, who needs any more recognition?

    I joined during the beta as well and didn't get the sash. How many status points and likes do I need? Can I still get the sash now?

    Nope, you needed 25 points by May 15th. I see from your profile that you didn't make your first post until 3 weeks later , so you didn't really start getting points until then. (click on the number of status points on your profile to see that).

    Bummer. I'll wait for the next sash opportunity or maybe a "second chance" one for those like me.

    Maybe Randy could start a site for "Status Seekers"

    He/she also didn't get the one and three month anniversary points until May 25, which indicates that there were several months of not even logging into MP after registration.

    But we all must feel serious reverence for those, like MSPeconomist, who have earned the exalted Gold status.

    Yes I logged in again to make the post. You don't need to login to review, but I get the point is to encourage participation not withstanding the registration.

    PS - I am a He (not a he/she) :D

    Logging in does make it much easier to review, since the system then recalls which posts you already read, and you can pop directly to the new posts in any thread.

    Thanks for clarifying this for us Gargoyle, this is the correct criteria for Original Member status.
