PLEASE READ: Re: User Statuses

So, as some of you may or may not have noticed, user statuses (Junior Member, Senior Member, Bronze/Silver/Gold Member) are being taken away and being replaced with simply "Member."

There have been some issues on the forum regarding "seniority." It hasn't been all of you, but there have been problems.. Some new members may see a higher status as a sign of more knowledge (not always true) and listen to that member simply because they are a higher rank. Others feel that higher status members tend to start to feel more "invincible" on the forum, and may mistreat newer members.

For these reasons, we have decided as a team that the statuses will be removed. Three will be left. .
"New member" - Will exist until you reach 50 posts.
"Member" - Everyone with over a week membership goes into this group.
"Super Moderator/Administrator" - So you can tell who we are.


We are hoping you aren't too disheartened by this change, and that it will help us all get along a little better.
This is the first of several changes to the forum, and we will try to make it up to you for those lost statuses.

Thank you,
The Betta Fish Team.


PS- Not everyone has been changed, as the system is still running through the member list, this may take some time.

Dangnabbit, I liked being bronze. :p I've no problem with it - I agree that it makes people all hierarchical, and most of us are still learning all the time, regardless of status.

One thing I would love to know - what is the difference between a mod and a super mod? Are normal mods not going to exist now - are you all super? (I mean, we know you are ;), but what's the technical difference?)

We are having some issues with getting the new member thing to work properly so just be patient with us.

Glad you guys are taking this so well.

Bomba: There are no moderators, just super moderators. :p
