Hey Penn...now that I have reached 500+ posts (yeh, break out the cake!) my status has changed from Senior Boarder to Expert Boarder. Now 500 posts makes me a prolific poster (short period of time, forum dihorrea), but I am uncomfortable with the expert tag..someone actually sent me a pm today asking if I was an Oscar expert...have you ever considered changing the status of 500 plussers to something more apt? If you have posted 500 times it means that you are an expert at posting, but you might be still an amatuer oscar fish lover, just a thought for people who don't hang out here that much and don't know who the real experts are.....what do others think?..

Like i stated before, expert is not a "protected" title.
Anyone can call himself an expert on any matter.
It's just a matter of opinion, even if it's only your own opinion. ;)

imo the strength of our forum is in consequent and unanimous advice from different "experts".
Postcount is often considered to be the same as expertise, but it is indeed not.

It appears that the new forum look takes care of this... I didn't like mine saying that either. Still have training wheels here!!

There is a fine line between sanity and insanity.... Come walk it with me!
