Plastic of choice listed in my avatar ??

plastic of choice (in my avatar)

What's up with that? How do we change/set it ?
Maybe there was a thread on this, but I didn't run across it anywhere.

I think it has something to do with how much you post. The more you post, the better grade plastic you are.

Yeah, it's a board feature, related to how many posts you have. Set by the site admin(s). Just changed recently, though in my old age I can't remember what it was before.

From what I can tell:

<100 posts = barney
100 to 250 posts = DX plastic
250 to 500 posts = Pro plastic
500 to 1000 posts = Champion plastic
over 1000 = Star plastic

Don't know if there's anything past that -- there are very few members with over 1000 posts who aren't also moderators or admins.

Other boards do similar things. The DiscGolfCourseReview.com boards use essentially the same board software (phpBB) and have the user ranks as bogey, par, birdie, eagle, and ace members

Once again another idea I have which no one likes. Might as well go and kill myself now.

A little extreme. I like it, but can you edit my # of posts so I'm not a barney? :?:

P'body - You can just eat worms, and we would hate to lose you. That or you can just periodically shut down the message board to mess with people and cheer yourself up. :think:

Post more and your won't be a message board barney.

Take a tip from djester and Keith. Post on everything whether it deserves a comment or not. You will move up the ranks in no time. I might just make a special category for them now that I am thinking about it. I mean over 2,000 post should have its own special ranking. I am thinking "Bagger" :shock:

"barney-thread post-bagger" please 8)

It would be better for people to pick which plastic they prefer... just my thought.

Now for the post count thing:
shule poster
barney poster
amateur poster
pro poster
bagger poster
weak sauce poster

:lol: Nice try Barry...

Why is Champion below Star? I think it should be the other way around.

How about tying the number required for Pro Plastic to however many posts I have at a given time minus one? I guess until that happens I've got the consolation of playing pretty well for throwing barneys. And I tried to think of something below DX, but all I could come up with was Lightning.

I think star is better. I tend to find that champion plastic turns over quicker.

I have DX Plastic under my name, which I like, but I unfortunately can't ever post again; because each post brings me closer to the next tier... LOL :lol:
