    Ideally, I would classify veterans as 5000+ posts or 1000+ likes.
    Senior Members : 2000+ post or 300+ likes


    Likes can be easily manipulated by a Group of members ( then can be Brokers or somebody looking to manipulate or somebody looking to gain/upgrade his Likes status ), working in sync . Also Likes many times tend to be more of instant reaction/s . Just an example, if u r a Bull & somebody makes a point supporting a Bull, u might just Like him in the heat of the moment, but your Like may not be what i term as a "Universal Like" . If their is a dislike option, many Bears would dislike the same post .

    ..........so likes r more of an expression of agreeing to that post ( for whatsoever reasons ) & clubbing them with classifying Veterans, Senior members & others might not really be a fruitful/effective way .

      Dear Manoja,
      will agree to some extent. But then many likes are true appreciation to the information and insights provided my members which i consider as qualitative
      I was just trying to figure out qualitative yet objective way. Although that would be still biased, but i sometimes tend to hold the guys with good number of likes as a genuine veteran

        Back to back postings should be discouraged. Some people do it just to increase post count. I have seen people with 10 back to back posts in same timeframe

            Yes, i know, we have many Likes which r true appreciation of the post, but as i said, quantitative way of basing the Seniority has many -ves too .

            ...........i believe that Phases is looking at new systems on this & hopefully he can find something which satisfies most members, if not all .

              One immediate way to control ids from posting combative posts (as against factual ones) is to immediately downgrade the membership one level down if the mod has to intervene. No questions straight down grade and going up would mean again accumulating (say) 300 posts for example.

              There are lot of posts where ids go all out to prove a point and that is not the intent of the thread.

                In the member description area i.e. join date, posts, likes etc there should also be an option for indicating primary interest area or expertise of the member in a RE location & Project so that the member's posts carry some weightage & attention when he posts in a particular thread.

                It will also help new members & advice seekers to go through the previous posts of that particular member so as to derive maximum benefit from his/her expertise in a particular location/project.
                Good luck

                  There should be a standard policy of making change in log in names or login ID.
                  CHANGE or NO CHANGE,admin. may take a decision on this.
                  In some cases login ID is changed at member request while in other cases change is not made in spite of many requests.

                    Mods. cannot change the user names on their own, only Admin, can do it

                      I am no more interested to change my login ID.However,a policy may be formulated by admin. for making changes.What is sensible or not is a matter of perception.I find many non-sensible IDs at IREF.
