A few changes to the post count member groups
« on: April 05, 2012, 03:13:12 PM »
These are just for fun anyway. But we have a lot more members now with a lot more posts than when we first started (which is a great thing)!

When we first set up the forum, I picked some arbitrary, low post count numbers for each of the member groups, and some names based on types of knife sharpening equipment. However, we have been posting so much we have been blazing through the different member groups really fast. (Also a good thing!)

What I want to do is spread them out a bit. In other words, make the required posts to hit each new group a larger number, so that we don't run through them all in a month's time.

Please don't see this as a "demotion". EVERYONE, including myself is likely to be bumped down to a lower classification.

These different post count based groups are just for fun so it shouldn't be a problem. I just wanted to let you all know what was going on so you didn't think you were suddenly "demoted" or anything. This changes nothing, other than that we will all go back to being a whetstone or a water stone or mill file or whatever.

As long as I'm not a bastard file, I'm ok with it.
Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.

Well, mill file and mill bastage file are about the same, eh?

At least I'm not a chunk of 80 grit sandpaper!

...or maybe I am...haven't bothered to look at my avatar/name/posts/thingy...

EDIT: (or MODIFY:?) Just posted so I could look.  I'm a mill+!!!  Yippie!

...i think...or does that mean i'm just a bastage?

WW.
You have to take this is context, WW. There's a big difference between diamond jewelry, and a diamond sharpening stone.
A waterstone is gentle, yielding, shows the effects of its life's wear, but can be rejuvenated and renewed. A diamond stone is just...there. Never changing, never wearing out, but never getting any younger, either.   ;D

And the discs on my knife massager are diamond coated...   

I'm always needing more diamond stuff.. ... 

Diamonds are worth more at the pawn shop......   >:D

I've never owned a Diamond in jewelry.   :S

You do have a point...  but I'm still gonna think on this....

Crap! I forgot about your dial-up. Sorry!  Whey would they have to run a new line? All you should need is a DSL modem, instead of a dial-up. 'Course the service costs a lot more.

Its ok.. I'll let it load in.   Its sounding like a cute song.   

Our phone lines are too old for DSL speed I guess.  THey would need to redo the line under the lake.  Its a mess..  at the office they dont even have a map of us on this line.   We are at the end of it.   The box that shows the end of the line is across the lake on the county highway.   One kid finally took the day and walked the woods and cattails over there to find two more boxes.  And we borrowed him our fourwheeler to go to this side and find one more box.    He said that the lines are too old or the boxes are too old ..or theres too many boxes for that lil black box they need to wire in for DSL.    Trust me.. I call quite often to get something faster than 48 kbps.

I called a few other services too.. they cant reach a tower from here.   DISH still needs a phone line.  Whisper needs more than one person to use thier service . ect ect...     Trees in the way for that Blue one..     gah.

Folks with cellphones dont get much for coverage here in this area either.    TV antenea is on the barn if we want local channels.  Gotta crawl on the roof to change direction of antenea if you want a different channel.   ha.      Dish managed to find ONE spot to put it in here... thank goodness.  Car GPS's tell the driver to turn around or they will enter a lake when they come down our driveway.. ha.

Country livin has some disadvantages...
