    Default is on a distinguished road???

    Terry,

    When I hover my mouse pointer over the little green square under anybody's number of posts on the top right hand corner of their post. A balloon comes up saying "X is on a distinguished road".

    Now I have to ask; what in the world does that mean???

    Yes,

    What does that mean?

    I looked at the list of ratings, and they are pretty funny.

    User is infamous around these parts
    User can only hope to improve

    User has a little shameless behaviour in the past

    User is an unknown quantity at this point

    User is on a distinguished road

    User will become famous soon enough

    User has a spectacular aura about

    User is a jewel in the rough

    User is just really nice

    User is a glorious beacon of light

    User is a name known to all

    User is a splendid one to behold

    User has much to be proud of

    User has a brilliant future

    User has a reputation beyond repute

    Maybe we should come up with our own list of ratings for reputation.

    Please send any ideas you have for that.

    How about "is not a pro"?

    how about:

    "Has too much dope in his joint"
    "Sweats like Elvis"
    "Lays pipe for dough"
    "Will flux you like an animal"
    "Likes sanitary tees on their backs"

    Maybe I should remove that one. We all seem to be on the same road anyway.

    It's using resources and telling us all the same thing.

    Isn't there supposed to be a link of some sort where you can vote for a person? And this is what determines which of the sayings come up on the little green button for that person?

    I know some forums have this feature. I don't know if it's a good feature or not for sure. It could give some a complex and others a false sense of self worth.

    I see your still on the Distinguished road too Terry. I have 20 reputation points. How many do you have, and how many do you need before you become "A jewel in the Rough"?

    One of my favorites is sometimes attributed to Winston Churchill, who once remarked that a colleague was "a modest man, with much to be modest about."

    hello speedbump... just wondering, how did you found out you have 20 reputation points? where do you get it? And whats "a jewel in the rough"? is it a ranking or something?

    thanks!

    When your reading through the posts made by yourself and others, you will see a set of scales in the upper right hand corner. If you click on the scales on someones post you can vote. If your looking at one of your own posts you can click the scales and you will be told how many reputation points you have.

    You now have at least one, because I voted for you.
