Status
 
Get rid of em.

From early on, we think we need to obtain a specific status in the community. Some will do anything to gain that status. I think we would all agree we wouldn't have as many problems in this world if "status" wasn't in our vocab or in our minds...all equal beings.

Same here at Interference. I see so many people posting to gain a "status" - but what for? What does this status give you? A discount on the premium membership? the automatic love and admiration of everyone who posts at Interference.com? a new car?

So, I would suggest breaking down barriers....and getting rid of the status in the username profile.

The statuses here are fun. I don't think it's that big of a deal...just an extra U2-ey touch.

But people believe they should have specific ones for some reason. That is not fun.

I'm not sure the "status" thing really means anything. Most people just post (excuse my language..) Crap, just for the posting. I've been reading this site for a long time now, I'm still a babyface. who really looks at the status anyway, well then again do you all?

Every single message board on the planet has status's.

If you're talking about custom status, I dont see it as big a deal as it once was back in the day.

Any other gripes while you're here? :p

So its upping the post count for the sake of it or the reaching of an actual Interference status? I agree there is a fine line between them at times.

Status' aren't the problem.

Pinball Wizard 08-30-2003 03:53 AM

Indeed.

mellyinsf 08-30-2003 11:36 AM

what is the problem then?

Sicy 08-30-2003 02:17 PM

People who whine :wink:

Hello,

I agree that it is a non-issue. In a way status says nothing. Only this week I began posting in a thread just for posting reasons. It's fun while it lasts, but it doesn't say anything. As Bonochick said, a status is just an extra U2-ey touch. When people do want to put extra value to it, then I think it's more of a problem for that person than it is for the status-status (if that last word makes sense :)).

C ya!

I think the status things are fun. Everyone knows it's not like you're suddenly a cooler person if your status says "Acrobat" instead of "The Fly" or something. It's just a bit of fun. And as Sicy said, almost every message board you visit has a status system -- it's just another little unique factor in each message board. So I say keep the statuses, if for no other reason than I just spent five minutes trying to figure out how to spell statuses. :reject:

*Fizz.

I still mourn the day I didn't have the Acrobat status anymore... :sad:
Is it possible to go back to a status? :)

C ya!

If someone posts and posts to get a status they will lose it if they continue posting........ I really doubt anyone here posts to get a certain status

am I making sense? Probably not
