Is there a list on how to get promoted on the board? Currently I am listed as a tadpole, what is the next level? How many posts does it take? It really doesn't matter except to my fragile ego!

Keep posting tadpole. :)

I forget the numbers, but if you stay active, it won't take long before you become a guppy, grouper, barracuda, or even shark.

And if you stay on here night and day you may one day become a GRAND MASTER SPAMMER. Very few have achieved this prestigious award!:smilie39:

I think that 50 is the magic number to become a guppy. If so, then this is my fiftieth. I'll let you know what happens. (I just watched it change, so 50 is a guppy.)

Hey Chicken,

Want to increase those postings? WetNurse posted a thread of jokes in the jokes forum.

Click New Posts (in the gray menu bar) and look for the post that encourages jokes.

Actually, not a whole lot...when you hit 250 posts, send Larry an email and you get a $50 Scuba Toys gift certificate. You did send in for your $10 gift certificate when you hit 10 posts, right?

Actually what your posting status gets you is some respect from your fellow ST'ers. Well, depending on what and how you post. But from what I've seen from this forum, most folks a good posters and I would enjoy diving with any of them.

To this date, I have gotten to meet and dive with 8 St'ers and met another 5. A good group to say the least.

cowgirldiver

I can tell that is the Highlander because, yes, I've seen all the movies (it's almost like being a Trekkie) and the saying, "there can be only one" comes from those movies. Besides, I've seen most of Christopher Lambert's other movies too and I'd recognize him anywhere.

The levels may not be important but I see that I am drawing ever closer to post #250. I am trying to decide if I will get the camera I really want or be a good mom and start getting my son his gear. A very, very tough decision....

Three words cowgirl: Hand - Me - Downs !!!

cowgirldiver
11-16-2008, 09:28
I guess the only problem with the hand me downs is that my son is 16 and wears the same size BCD as I do (plus I have a women's BC and he's just not into all that pink-same thing with both my wetsuits). I do have to say he has been lusting after my reg set since it has the miflex hose. Also, last time we were in a dive shop, he tried on a BP/W and has determined that is what he wants. I guess at least that way, I will only have to buy him one since they seem to be so adjustable and can grow with him.

Not to my knowledge. That's my dad's department... except the Internet is a little too much for him to handle.

As for that Highlander guy, well, perhaps he's sleeping with the fishes... see? :smiley36:

Yes,,, please no "me too" type posts. Not that you've done that so far. It is nice to get money just for posting about such a great hobby (addiction).

Says the man with 1,310 posts...:smilie39::smiley20::smiley20::smilie39:

I know, I have 1,422... :D

But I do agree, the post count means nothing...scubasamurai is right the important number is dives! Getting wet is what counts. But more importantly is having fun and gaining experience!

Nice catch, Fire Diver. I thought I slid that one by the entire crowd. I think that you earned a ST gift certificate for that one. Joe and Larry might not agree, however.

I haven't been too worried about getting the gift certs, hell the last 2 orders I have placed have been greatly discounted.

No, I'm back in Iraq. I was moved to a new FOB, so it took a while to get internet up and running again.
