    I was just thinking, wouldn't it be cool
    if there were Senior Members?? something like
    300+ posts??

    By the way: Since I'm already posting, I might as well just add to it. Does anyone
    know the basics of developing your own
    Operating System? If you know any sites that
    have that kind of information, can you please
    E-mail me???

    300+ posts is not enough for being a senior member, it should be like 1000+ (been there)! Besides from what it should be, first it should exist...

    I don't agree on a senior membership based purely on the number of posts, as this could encourage meaningless replies for just the sake of becoming a senior.

    I would suggest instead that administrators organize a contest or a votation, say one a month to elect the "Senior Member of the Month" in a democratic way.

    Some one else agree?

    Jr Member, Member, Sr Member i think it all really doesn't matter because are we all not here for the same reason to find answers to any problems that we are having.

    Speaking of silly Posts i think this post made me a member hmm i still suck at vb though i am now a member

    Just FYI, The Ultimate Bulletin Board only supports 4 membership levels:
    • Administrator
    • Moderator
    • Member
    • Junior Member


    Maybe you can contact the people that made it...

    good for you. Here's some advice, though...the best way to get them is to post useful/real questions and answers, not by digging up threads that haven't been touched in 2 years

    Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Cry, and you just water down your vodka.


    Take credit, not responsibility

    It looks like Megatron had only 60 posts when this thread was started! (That is what matthewralston was saying, right?)

    Welcome to the esteemed ranks of the crazies

    Damn, you're getting like me - I do this occasionally (dig up old threads and attempt to replant them in the gutter)
    I refuse to tie my hands behind my back and hear somebody say "Bend Over, Boy, Because You Have It Coming To You".

    Back to the topc...

    What about a questions and answers comparasions?

    To truely evaluate, woudn't it be more relative to the number of post answered, than the questions posted by the user? That would truely be the judge...

    Actually, if it gets done that way, it would probably be better to count correct or accurate answers, rather than just any questions. In order to do that, you'd need to have people rating others...

    ...and that gets a bit silly considering most of the higher posters (like Megatron, Kedaman, Matt Gates, HeSaidJoe, Mark Sreeves, and a whole lot of others) have already been "unofficially" rated, in a way.

    Don't know what brand, it's generic

    Hmm,

    How about a second rating system based on the total time
    you're logged on in VB-World. I have a suggestion for the
    ultimate designation.

    For time logged on > 1,000,000 Minutes,
    Designation = IM_TheBigPotatoe

    Angry Ratings etc

    It always annoys me the amount people go on about this stuff.
    It sounds like you want to turn this into Experts Exchange!

    Look, I like it here, which why I come here and not EE.

    Relax, enjoy

    Well for starters, you're posting this in the wrong section. It should be in the C++ forum, but since there was no C++ forum back then, I guess you couldn't. Developing an operating system is a lot of work, and it's not a good idea to try to do it yourself. You'll need a team of experienced C programmers (notice I said C, because VB doesn't have the capability of doing this). You also might want to try to learn some ASM, because it will come in handy when building a kernel.

    Proof that Megatron hasn't lost his sense of humour just because he hardly ever visits the gutter (otherwise known as Chit Chat)
