Title: Whats with the stars?
Post by: psalm103:10-13 on April 18, 2009, 09:09:46 PM
I have noticed that different people have a different number of stars and title above there stars. Today I have three stars but I know that I only started out with one, it still says "Biginner" over those stars so it makes me think that there not connected. Does anyone know how this works?

Here is what Dalfie posted last year in relation to stars and titles:

Beginner 0+ posts, 1 star/10
Scholastic 50+ posts, 1 star/10
Professional 100+ posts, 1 star/100
Specialist 500+ posts, 1 star/100
Enthusiast 1000+ posts, 1 star/250
Revivalist 2500+ posts, 1 star/500
Philanthropist 5000+ posts, 1 star/500

what the 1 star/# means, is additional star per that many posts.  The thought behind the levels is the amount of verbage such a high quantity of posts would contain...   We've tried to avoid levels that refer too strongly to a specific arena, such as sports. However, it seems to be difficult to find 7 or more words that somewhat go together without strong connotations!


You can find that post on the "No More Hero" thread on the "Website Comments" board.  This link might get you there:  http://www.revivalsermons.org/forums/index.php?topic=2462.80  It's contained in reply #82.  (Actually, I just tried it and it does get you there--amazing, given my level of technological maladroitness).  :roll:

I like the way you have tried to stay away from the worldly progressions... 

other things could be like the growth of a tree or something...

seed ....  to full growth pine

Mention it to Dalfie.  Nothing ventured, nothing gained.   :-D

How about oak?  Strong, dependable, long lived.

Thank you Raven,
I had no idea that there was so much behind the stars and title.

Yes, Oaks are good but the evergreen is always green...    :)

An excellent point.  I defer to your better judgment.  :salute:

Science fiction often mentioned the blue / blue white star Rigel.   Twinkle Twinkle LITTLE star  seems sort of out of place here.


Rigel ain't little at all

Even bigger than Rigel.
