Hi Koji,

let me add that all members are equal on our board, there aren't any "ranks" nor is there a hierarchy (hey, we maintain a civilian forum *G* ).

But seriously, the quality of a posting does not depend on someone's user status.

Currently, our user titles are as follows:

Junior Member
Member (Minimum Posts: 30)
Senior Member (Minimum Posts: 100)
Old Japan Hand (Minimum Posts: 500)
Veteran (Minimum Posts: 1000)

Once again, these titles should not be viewed as incentive to embark on a posting spree. ;)

There are a quite a lot of forums that resorted to deleting user titles. Anyhow, it seems that rank and brass still stimulate the human ego.

Just the $ 0.02 of a modest junior member. :D

I beleive that user titles are indeed to some people a pain in the neck(haha) ,how ever to those of us who are less familar with forums etc; and the people to whom we post messages to are at a glance aware of our status and if we write something silly or of no conection to the thread it allows a bit of tolerance on the side of the exsisting members and it makes us feel less intimadated by the forum experts.
I'm sure by now I'v made at least a dozen mistakes, and the members here tolerate or over look it because of my status, and for that I thank you,
debs xx

Well, this forum is just a few weeks old, so there aren't too many forum experts around yet. And I do hope from the bottom of my heart that there's nothing intimidating about our board (apart from the design). :)

Thanks for your kind words, Deborah. It feels good to have dedicated members!

If there'll ever be a user title such as "Forum Expert" it has to be you! :)

We have a similar plant here, called "allium ursinum" ("Bear's Leek"), smelling very, ehm, intensive. Now it's season. Ainu-negi, hehe; probably the same plant.

Btw, my wife prepared it once gyoza-style. :lick:

I like em just cuz that they sort of provide an insentive sometimes.
I was so happy when I made the 1,000 veteran mark at another site. LOL ... doesn't really mean much but still.

Although, I like them still they shouldn't be all important.

Do they have wheat beer in Japan? That (and black bread) are the only things I'm really missing while being abroad.
