    When the current iteration of FlyerTalk was officially launched in May 1998, I was in Australia at the time — plus, I had no desire to participate on an Internet bulletin board. In fact, back in 2002, I only planned to post on FlyerTalk and simply leave anonymously shortly thereafter.

    Ha!

    In any case, I could never be an Original Member of FlyerTalk for the aforementioned stated reasons, and I never will.

    A few moments ago, I received an alert that I was awarded the designation of Original Member. I am not sure about how I earned that specifically, but that is not important. I just wanted to share that I am proud of that.

    Yes, I will still participate on FlyerTalk as I always have, but I also intend to participate here at milepoint.com and assist where I can.

    Quality contributions that are valued by the community are the best path to status elevations.

    It's interesting. So, you get the Original Member title only after so many posts?

    So, someone is reading every single post and gives a mark for it? Really?

    Everyone can give a mark for a post they like. Look to the right of the post and there is a "Like" link.

    So, since you have status of 75, it means 75 people have "liked" your posts?

    Click on the 75 and you will see how the points have added up. It doesn't explain all of them, but you can get a sense for what contributes to the number. If you find others with high numbers, you can see how they got there.

    Good for you [​IMG]- I also joined FT in 2002 - but judging from the responses to your post - I gather that my output on FT lack quality [​IMG]
    Cheers

    Thank you for clarifying this since I was wondering about the original status member designation. I guess more participation and less lurking is in order.

    Don't lurk, like!. The like button is you friend, and friends help you get status. Seriously, in the beginning activity helps the system so silly posts in their place seem to be beneficial as well as create an irreverent sense of community. That we have, and you are now a part of it, so I like you. Next, whatever you know about Post about it. What ever you want to know but don't post about that too. before you know it you'll be Silver!

    Likes are not required, but 15 posts and 5 likes would do it.
