    I have noticed that each member is classified as a Junior Member, Registered User, Senior Member, Plow Site Veteran or whatever.

    I've been trying to figure out just what the difference is, but there don't seem to be any factors I can see that would make me a "Registered User" instead of a "Junior Member". At first, I thought it was the number of posts or length of time as a member, but I've seen "Senior Members" with less than 100 posts and "Registered Users" with several hundred. Is it done by age maybe?

    Don't get me wrong, I don't really care, I'm not running for office here or anything. If I don't get any money for being called one thing over another then it doesn't really matter what category I fall in to. It's just that it got my curiosity going, and I can't seem to figure it out on my own or find the answers in any of the threads or the FAQ's, and unsolved mysteries do drive me a little nuts :nod: .

    So, if you all who run the show here don't mind telling, how's this work??? :confused: Thanks.

    They've made some changes over the last few months. It used to be:
    0-24 posts=junior member
    25-100 posts= senior "
    over 1000 posts= plowsite addict.

    That's what I mean, you're a great example Boss.

    You've got over a thousand, I have 26. But we're both "Registered Users".

    Doesn't make any sense to me.

    I wish it was like the old way again. I'll have to inquire to Sean to see if he can switch it back.

    I think we are all registered users except for the administrators?

    Does it really matter what it says under your name????

    When I started this thread, I was pretty clear that it really doesn't matter.

    I'm just curious, that's all. And, it seems some of the other members are too. Now, it would be nice if Sean or Chuck or some moderator of the site would provide an answer. It is confusing and it's just human nature to seek answers to puzzles.
