Does anyone know what the "junior member" designation means?

im glad youve asked that question because i was born in 1957 and am classed as a junior member. why????

I think it has to do with how many times you've contributed to threads here in the forum.

I seem to be a senior member although I don't know why. Maybe it's my age, I am 67.
Edit: I notice that pcuser is a senior member. Zenobia43 is a member. Some people are without title as well. It doesn't seem to be be anything to do with the date when we joined.

Some forums have titles dependent on the number of responses a user has made. Thus people who rarely have anything to say stay a low "rank", no matter how long they've been around, and people who love chatting on the forum move up.

It depends on how many times you've submitted posts in the forum. I can't remember how many you need to become a "junior" member and how many to advance to "senior." (I'm thinking I've read somewhere that 30 is one of the numbers.)

I am over a hundred now, that's how I am Senior. I am guessing if you have never posted a message on the forum you don't have any description. A junior member needs 1 post That's for certain. Once above 30 maybe you are Member and maybe over a hundred Senior. I cannot remember being elevated to Senior. I was too busy posting messages like this one.:p


I think Senior means blabbermouth.:D

Stan, you're probably right -- senior member and blabbermouth are the same thing. :D

Yup, Laura, it is Puzzle Baron's polite description of a blabbermouth. member is a trainee blabbermouth and Junior Member is a little blether.(Scots for blabbermouth)

It depends on how many posts you have. This is only my second post, so I'm a junior member. On most forums I've seen, you get to plain old member at 30 or so posts.

I wonder if puzzle solving is also a factor I hope/wish it is/was.

Four of the top five players on the All-Time Rankings board are Junior Members, so I'm pretty sure puzzle solving doesn't enter in to it.

This link might shed some light on the subject. It doesn't describe how this vBulletin instance is administered, but it hints at how the titles are dependent on post counts.
