When you hit the magic # of 50 posts, you will change from just being 'new around here' to………like a catepllar changes into a beautiful butterfly………to becoming…………drum roll please……………a dotTech 'nerd.'

Now, how cool is that???? Cool

Look forward to your new nerd-ness!!

Your pal

Al

Hey Ebony!

Since I was promoted from a 'new around here' to a 'nerd' not that long ago, & you are so close, I thought I'd give you an additional reason for living another day! Wink

When you move on with your life, ya know, after becoming a new nerd, you can also look forward to an even greater "lifetime achievement," because, as you reach your 100th posting, …..are you ready….you would become (you night want to sit down for this 1st):

………..another …………drum roll please……………

……..a dotTech GEEK!

Whew!! Can you imagine!!??!!

Well, that's enough excitement for one day!!

your pal

Al

And if you've been around long enough and are a huge part of the community you might even be promoted to Admin! Which is to say Moderator! Laugh

Let us just hope that wise people and people with some degree of knowledge (like, say, Karen – hint, hint) are made mods … and not just those who are space-fillers. Wink

'Tis true. I think it's fairly obvious who the have-nothing-to-say-but-will-say-it-anyway-in-lengthy-multiple-posts people are – which is why a chat box is such a good idea (please Ashraf!). It can be, among other things, an outlet for idle chatter.

Sure, why not. It has nothing to do with the topic at hand. But it wasn't precisely what I meant … Wink

@yourpalal

I will be waiting with baited breath to become a dotTech GEEK!

@Locutus

promoted to Admin! Which is to say Moderator! I am going to have Smile with you on that one.

@phoenix_rising

a chat box? That is a topic I wanted to suggest under Improve dot Tech but was not sure it would go over well. A chat box would allow us to ask a question and possibly get a quick answer without having to post a question and have to constantly check back to see if there is a response. If we are unable to get the answer in chat, THEN post the question.

I know what you mean by "lengthy-multiple-post". It has been my PR/marketing experience, that you have 10 secs to get a person attention, so if the message goes blah blah blah blah the crux of message is lost.

I like this site because there is oodles "information you can use"

Oh and the company is not bad either.Wink

@phoenix_rising: LOL, I'm going to make a post just to take up space.

You've overtaken my post count!!! Oh no!!! I'll have to make lots of inane and very long post to take my place back!!!

(To anyone who might be offended, this is kinda an inside joke between phoenix and I, not to be taken seriously).

@ Karen: Hee hee! My night hours are your day hours, so you can outrun me then! LOL!

@ Everyone: Yep, a chat box for sure, hey.

@ The powers that be: I am officially launching the "Karen for Mod" campaign … coming soon to a chat box near you! Wink

At the time of this space-taking waste-post (this one), Phoenix has 359 and Karen has 358. Place your bets!

Which is what was concisely alluded to in my earlier post on the topic "I see you upgraded the forums."

"If it's small chat you want – how about starting a topic area for just
that?"

Just thought I'd claim the brownie points here. Laugh

Seems like we have the same great (or festering) ideas… Wink LOL

Just to help keep you in the fast lane, and maybe gain Nerd status in the process, what does the acronym DITNT stand for? Confused

Please excuse this possibly dumb question – I am not feeling too bright today.Frown
