well, I have been a silent but frequently viewing member for more than 2 years,
and since I only had 2 posts I had to make 8 "very nice" posts,
in order to be able make my profile look, like I wanted it too,
I find that silly, and I actually tried and did manage to find 8 subjects in order to write something meaning full.
Perhaps it was an idea to make member time a factor rather that number of posts, just my opinion.
But apart from that, I am very satisfied with this forum, and keep up the good work.
