I remember when Lifer used to be a pretty special achievement for the nef masters on ATOT. Not to(happy Edro?) mention the massive ego boosts they got from using up more Anandtech bandwidth than an entire third world country uses in a year. Seems like Lifer has lost is luster though. Used to be able to count them on one hand. Now I see a new one every day.

I think we need to establish a new post count level maybe around the 100,000 post mark with a new witty title. Maybe something along the lines of "Lifer With No Parole" or "No Life-er" haha. What do you think?


Thanks for the suggestion, we'll take it under advisement.

I think the joke is on you if you really care. The words and numbers under anyone's name have no bearing on the quality or usefulness of your posts or what you take away from the forums.

although in many cases, "Elite" does yield better quality posts in the tech. forums

If you get to 100,000 posts it should read, 40 year old unemployed loser virgin.

Or something like that.

Makes sense--originally there were only senior and junior members, and now that's expanded. It's only logical to expand the current titles even further.

...and only in the tech forums IMO. not particularly a fan of the OT elites. anyone can scour drudge report and post up a strange story of the day without any comment from themselves.

Lifer status should be based on when you joined, not post count.

Or they should branch the titles like the military where you work to become a Master Sergeant (Master Neffer Class) or a General (Lifer).

You also forgot to add at the end of your subtitle: " I am not a crackpot".

You used "too" incorrectly.

Other than their importance in the trading forum join date/post count have no meaning.
