What is the difference between a Member and a Senior Member?

HaHa in advance for the funny guys.

Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
 
100 posts is the nominal difference.
If you notice the Senior Members to be modest, unassuming, surprisingly knowledgable and particularlr articulate... well, you can write that off to your exceptional abilities of observation.

Welcome.

Wecome dogman! Hope you enjoy it here.

A MEMBER uses one post to answer three points. A SENIOR MEMBER uses three posts to answer one point.

I'll try to do this in one post

Well. I won't lie to you, my first 100 posts just sort of snuck up on me. I guess I was just spending too much time dispensing my endless culinary wisdom... and a whole lot of BS at the same time. Actually, I've asked many more questions than I've answered.

Doh!

Just couldn't resist another post. This is how I reacted when I hit 100 posts:

Not much has changed since then. Dogman, if your knife knowledge increases by the time you hit 100 posts and senior status you will have done better than me

I am a firm believer that you have to give knowledge to receive knowledge. I see a lot of that here. My posts would definitely be more frequent and detailed if I had the time. I am lucky (?) today, I have to stay home and wait for repair folk.

I circulate in the gun crowds and the knife crowds, and I find knife people to be much friendlier and open. Besides, I am not as interested to meet the production line guy (or computer) that machined a piece of my USP45 as I am to meet the bladesmith that handmade one of my customs. It takes on a personality of its own. As much as I love shooting, you just can't say that about many guns (except my custom Gov't Model).

I look forward to hitting the century mark soon.

Actually, there are a few members who are seniors, but when I see the profile they don't even have 100 posts. But they have been members since last year at least. Mike or Spark, can you confirm this?

But I do prefer quality to quantity, so Member or Senior Member doesn't really mean anything to me.

Welcome to BF, Dogman.

If I remember correctly, Reynaert, 40 had been the number of posts required for senior status several months back. The Senior Members you see with < 100 posts probably attained that status before the bar was moved.

Dogman,

Welcome to the forums! I'm still laughing about what Dave Williams said about answering a point. I think it's safe to say the Seniors are just a lot more long winded in the answer department.....oops
 
I thought it was wisdom, beauty and overall coolness. Or maybe you just have to wish it and click your heels together.
 
I've never seen it but at one time I think one of the members had a title other than MEMBER or SENIOR MEMBER. I think it was something like WACKO not sure, it was an inside joke.

I just figured out what you meant Clint. Congrats on Senior Citizen I mean Senior Member status

Dave,

I do believe it was the man, Walt Welch himself, who was appointed "Wacko" for a while!!!
 
You guys emphasized your point. Only Senior Members responded to my post. You are perpetuating your own legendary (self-induced) status. A more regal title perhaps:

Council of the Edged Elders
Barons of the Blade
Keepers of the Cut

I don't know if that is a poke in the eye or an attempt at humor. If it was humor I learned after stepping on a few toes that you need to use smileys

and type your laughs - LOL=Laughing Out Loud, hehehe, etc.

Clint Onsucks first post was as a Member and his second post on your thread was as a Senior Member. With that knowledge he makes sense. So you were wrong when you said only Senior members responded

There is a wealth of knowledge here and the atmosphere is great. Most of us are windbags but that is what makes it fun around here. I see a couple of other knife forums are dying a slow death. I don't know why, maybe somebody can tell me, so enjoy your time here.

Mr. Onsucks,

You're welcome, now the goal is to catch Mr. Turber at 2100+ posts

I can't match his content but I'm good at fluff'n'stuff
