    Confused about

    I was listed as a regular here for about a week. I was off due to abdominal surgery and have only now been able to get back on but lost my regular status. Has this happened to anyone else? :cry:

    I think it has to do with how many posts you have in like a 2 week period or something. Now that you are back on your feet and back on here, it will probably go back to "regular" soon. By the way, I hope you are feeling much better! Get well soon :D

    Quote from Admin's Forum Rules Section:

    User Titles

    User titles associated with accounts have the following structure:

    "new user" -- first two weeks after the registration.
    "a regular here" -- at least 20 posts during two weeks up to date (assigned/removed automatically).
    "community benefactor" -- outlined here.
    "top poster" -- a user with the highest number of posts.
    "moderator" -- users who help moderate the board.

    P.S. I hope you are recovering quickly.

    Wow, didn't know you could lose your regular status. Nice to know, I'll keep the laptop handy if I'm going to be gone for awhile. LOL Just keep posting and you'll become regular again I'm sure. You could pm Patrice and see how long it will take.

    It is nice that this post came up because I did not know you could lose your "regular" status either. LOL I read everyday from here but do not always have anything to say, so I don't always post. Guess I better get with it. LOL Please do take care!

    Too bad there isn't a way of being regular through visits rather than having to always say things. I visit daily but do a lot of keeping my keyboard quiet (mouth shut). I guess that's considered not contributing but I think of it as not cluttering.

    I slip in and out of being a 'regular' here too. But there has to be some kind of way to monitor our comings and goings when it comes to the classified. At least it's the same rules for everyone across the board.

    What is the advantage of being 'regular'? woh, I just looked to see that I am 'regular'. I guess I am spending too much time on the computer? LOL

    I think wolfkitty has it right. "Regular" is a way of telling us we are on the board talking more than we are quilting (notice I did not say "doing housework" -- I gave that up a long time ago!)

    It's just like when your doc says, "Are you regular?"

    That sounds like a good idea to pm to Admin if you want to.

    I don't think there's any reward to being listed as a "regular" unless of course it's your personal feeling about that being by your name. As a comment on b.zang's comment: Since's an automatically assigned and removed designation based on programming and since there are 16173 users currently listed, just think how cumbersome (an computer-intensive) it would be to keep track based on logged-in visits instead of actual posts. Whoowee!

    And as long as I looked up user/post statistics (current as about 10 minutes ago): users: 16173; posts: 1434709; posts last 24 hours: 4916.

    I'm not sure but I think in order to sell things on here you have to be considered a Regular. However, I guess we all get a little irregular at one time or another. LOL

    If you are short on time, post short welcomes and comments on pictures of quilts posted and you quickly have the needed numbers.

    This may be a stupid question, but do you have to be a regular on the board to buy from the classifieds? I understand about selling but did not find info about buying.

    Wow! I never knew how that got there. I had to go back and look at one of my posts. I didn't realize how much I'm on here but I've achieved "regular" status.

    No questions are stupid.

    I don't believe you have to be a "regular" to make a purchase.

    You can't sell anything in the classifieds here if you aren't a regular. In some cases Admin or Patrice can override that rule...
