    I am actually a really low profile person :oops: and it would be nice if we can choose whether to display my MP status underneath our avatar so Silver/Gold/Platinum/Plutonium :confused: Member won't be shown. Is this a feature that can be easily added or you might consider implementing?

    might happen considering they dropped the status points.

    Somewhere it was mentioned that a possible benefit of Platinum would be the ability to create a custom status level title. If so, you could make a custom level of "Member" or "Newbie" or whatever. :)

    ...or we could switch status levels if it would make you more comfortable displaying 'silver'.
    I am always willing to help a fellow MPer! :)

    It isn't a feature currently in place, or one that could be easily added, but it is certainly something we could consider implementing. I will add it to the suggestion list.

    Perhaps upon individual request, if the member gives you a valid reason, you could have a status with a blank name, or just a . (dot) as a space holder. Then give them that status. It would need to be the same level/permissions/benefits as their current status. This should just mean creating clones of silver, gold, platinum but with the new name to fill the same field.

    Actually the platinum benefit is custom title and that might mean the text displayed in the OM ribbon not the status

    I wonder though if part of the reason you don't want anything under your handle is because you have so much in your signature? :p

    You could become a guide and then below your avatar it would read Milepoint Guide instead of Gold Member, although personally I think the status of our guides should be clearly indicated.

    I don't think it's suitable for me to be a guide given how vocal I have been lately :eek:

    He has done a massive job of both content and community building. Look at the ANA and JAL forums, which he almost singlehandedly filled with information; at the same time he's been "sociable" all over the place. I don't think he sleeps, and I don't think he draws a very sharp line between work time and milepont time. :)

    I love it. If I had more information to give, I'd be all over it spreading the wealth!

    asking good questions also does a lot to build the site.

    I can certainly understand why someone would want to do this. I wonder if the status actually makes people post more?

    Doesn't sound very low profile, when you put it that way.
    Care to trade?
