  • Membership has its privileges?

    What makes a person a "Premier Club Member" and/or what distinguishes that person from being a "Junior Member"? Since I'm classified as the latter on all the messages that I post, should I feel left out?

    At first I thought it was related to the number of posts that you make, but I see plenty of Premier Club members without any posts....

    Did I miss the secret handshake?

        I think Myles bestowed this coveted title on early members, Squasher. I'm not sure it signifies much beyond that. FWIW, I was doing some casual research on British titles and their hierarchy -having not grown up with the peerage system (I'm a Yankee). I concluded that the best title, circa the 19th Century, was a "Master of Lunacy"- those appointed to oversee the insane asylums back in the day. Myles may be traveling- he can address this directly with you if a real concern.

          Myles said that I had to "like" him on Facebook, if I wanted to join audionirvana. Just saying

            The "Premier Member" tag was given to those who joined AN in the first two months.

            After that, I left the default BB default settings that go with number of posts. Full member tag IIRC comes with 50 posts. So just hang in buddy. I enjoy your posts!

              No worries at all. I only wish that I had put in the appropriate emoticon when I originally posted.

              p.s. After 50 posts, I'd rather find out the secret handshake.....
