    Just out of curiosity, how long does one stay listed as a “new member?” I’ve been on the boards since 2012. My oldest is now in college. She was 10 when I joined! [LOL]
    It’s too bad that 8 years for a camper doesn’t constitute as “new” too!

    I think it has to do with the number of posts you make. It looks like you have 26 right now. I just looked at someone else who was listed as "member" sans "new" and s/he had 32 posts to date. You may be less that 8 posts from a promotion!

    Pretty sure it is based on post count.

    Remember, your ranking is a reward to encourage you to post. The more posts the more likely the website is to survive. Likes are also a reward to encourage you to post.

    I joined @2 months ago...went from new to "well known" pretty quickly. But I may have a blabber mouth though.

    Just keep sharing and you'll get rid of the "new" title in no time!

    Welcome to the Portal from Southern Ontario. Hang around for a while, its a great place for NEW members to get info and ideas.

    There used to be semi-cool camping names given to posters according to their post count. Now its just boring - new member, active member, well known member - I don't know if there's anything more than just those. Not sure why Steve never changed them back to the old names from before the swap over of the Portal Program a number of years ago. Oh well, I was a 5 Star Eagle Camper back then, and I still am now (if you look at the right side of my banner). I don't even remember what all those old names were anymore. Maybe I'll send Steve a message and see if that's something he could easily do.

    Think of it this way: you have been on this forum for 8 years. You now have 28 total posts. That's 3.5 posts per year.

    That gives you "longterm lurker, rare poster" status.

    Steve4090 has 432 posts. At that rate, he will have about 2,592 posts per year. That gives him "shortterm blabber" status. ;)

    So much room inbetween those. And if you incorporate number of likes received per post, there are even more statuses.

    Short term blabber status lmao. That's awesome. [:D]

    Edit: If you said hello to every new member you'd be "well known" in a day if it matters that much...just saying.

    Especially right now with the first two pages of "new posts" being introductons from new posters.

    I try. With the number of new members this days, it's a full time job to keep up.
