I just noticed that below my title -Dingus McGirt, I am now shown as a "Senior Member."  I think I was a "Member" before.  Yay?

 

I believe it comes from your "reputation". 

 

1,000 posts moves you onto Senior Member I think?

My reputation shows - "starter" - maybe a combo of types of reaction to my inanity.  :^)

Once you cross over the threshold of 1,000 posts you become a senior member. Welcome to the brotherhood.

My reputation is "Pro Bowler" so must be similar metrics for that.

I should just be called a "Senior Lurker". I rarely post but I read almost everything posted. 

 

Now that I re-read that, I guess it's somewhat creepy...:scratch:

We have 330 senior members.  They have permission to give more 'reactions' eg likes etc

 

This is because, they've posted here enough to be a leader and we believe that they will highlight the better content on our site.  In other words, they make our site better by posting and also by interact with newer members who also make our site better.

 

That's not to say that some senior members don't make 'mistakes' But, generally, they are key to the quality of content her on the forums.

 

Maybe I should change the title to 'elite' or something that doesn't imply otherwise.

Nah.  I don't think you are creepy.  I feel like I am the same.  Read lots of posts, but don't post too many.

Members have more 'likes' than new members.  So, you count too!

Despite everyone's status, What I like about it is the versatility it brings to the common denominator, that everyone here is a Colt's fan. We have a bond together that in the end is about the success of the team. I have been a Colt's fan since the late 50's. I have only been on this forum

presently for  awhile even though I had a brief period  that I was a forum member before Peyton got drafted. Back then I got discouraged about the direction the forum was heading so, I quit the forum. I came back because of my long time love of the Colts and I must say that a lot has changed for the better over the years here. I have seen a much better forum that treats everyone like family. This is what I envisioned as a Colts fan, that welcomed everybody regardless of what direction or input people posted.  So Dingus McDirk    Congrats!

All online communities change over time.  But hopefully, we've hit on the right mix of procedures that keeps ours stable.  Good posters are key to that.  Also minimizing 'drive bys' helps a lot.

 

That's why the rookie group has to have 10 approved posts before they can create a topic.  While the vast majority of rookies are good posters.........even just one slipping through tends to upset everyone.

 

Moderators keep a close on on rookies to see if it's maybe looking like someone we've seen before.  Much less drama since we started dong this.

 

Thanks to our volunteer mods for keeping an eye on potential trouble makers.  Some are sneaky enough to slip past us but, generally the other posters recognize them if they find their way into the new member group.

    • I had us 9-7 just based on guessing/hoping/predicting Luck would be healthy and play great. I was right but a lucky guess, I guess  . I thought that would get us a 6th seed. We won 10 games which got us in.
    • For the first time in a while, I am impressed with the Colts development of players. If this current trend continues, a lot of opinions will change. 
    • I had us going 10-6 and winning the AFC South. I knew with Luck back we'd be at minimum .500, and I thought by adding Nelson, Ebron, and Cain, our O would be pretty decent, and enough to take the South. We were 10-6, but didn't win the South.  I wasn't counting on our D being as good, so I guess they overachieved. Honestly I'm still not sold on our D. This year will be a much bigger test.
    • There appears to be a possibility that the Pacers acquire 31-year-old Eric Gordon, the shooting guard for the Rockets.   Houston wants Jimmy Butler but they don't have cap space to sign him. The 76ers would have to sign Jimmy and trade him to Houston. But Houston cant send the 76ers matching salaries because Philadelphia already has to sign Tobias Harris, JJ Reddick and soon Embid and Ben Simmons..   So the 76ers and Houston have to find a third team who could acquire some salary. In the theory of this trade: That team would be the Pacers who would take the final year of Eric Gordon's contract at $15 mil   Obviously, Gordon is an IU grad and Indianapolis native. He comes off the Houston bench behind Chris Paul and James Harden. 16.2 per game last year and 16.7 for his 11-year career..   Forgetting how crazy Houston's locker room would be with Paul, Harden and Butler, is there a downside to acquiring Gordon, who would start until Oladipo returns? We might have to give up next year's No.1 pick.
    • Here is a serious question, does anyone want to win the NL Central? I mean seriously  . We are winning it but just give games away like the Brewers and Cards do as well.
