Little Blue Boxes Have Changed!
0

30 posts in this topic

How cool is that? Six little blue boxes now! :lol: I'm now an "advanced community member." Wondering how the little boxes work now, I looked it up...under the members section.

If you have 30 posts or more you're an advanced community member (6)

If you have 10-29 you're a community member (3)

If you have under 10 posts, you're a new community member (1)

This update is probably in light of one member mentioning having been on the diet for a long time, but feeling less important due to "advanced member" or "newbie". COMMUNITY member stresses how long you've been here, not gluten-free. Right. Scott?

Oh, wow...I didn't even notice the name change until it was pointed out. Avatars and signatures basically remind me.

And Vincent, people really do look at and take the labels of newbie, advanced member, etc. seriously: http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?s...indpost&p=44077

I just noticed the new blue squares because they had doubled and I found it hard not to notice them :lol:

Yep, I got some complaints from people who didn't like the "Newbie" label, even though it was only there for 10 posts. I don't want to turn off new board users in any way, so I thought "New Community Member" was much nicer, and more welcoming. Most people decide very early how involved they will become, so I made this change. I also thought it was hard to tell at a glance of 1-3 blue squares, just how advanced on the board a person was, so I updated this as well. I'm glad that you like it. We'll be making some real upgrades in the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned. We're now on a new server--let me know if you notice any speed issues with the board.

Take care,

Scott ;)

Both were good ideas, I think. Let us know if you find out what the changes to the board might be...I'm excited to get new features, lol...like Christmas Eve! :lol::D

I was starting to think I went off the deep end with the changes! I thought it was in my head. I think the term newbie comes off as demeaning. Change can be good.

Yes. Since people (myself included) often don't sign their posts, it's easier to tell who it is by looking at the name or avatar...and the boxes are doubled, so I couldn't help not noticing them. :)

I own/run a large message board using the same software... and I never realy gave much thought to the boxes. The titles some ppl do comment on, but not realy the boxes... or so I thought LOL.

Ok, I've updated this due to complaints from new members, and from some advanced members:

If you have 75 posts or more you're an Advanced Community Member (6 blue boxes)

If you have 26-74 you're a Community Member (3 blue boxes)

If you have under 25 posts, you're a New Community Member (1 blue box)

I hope this works for everyone!

Take care,

Scott
