I don't know quite what to think of being called a "Used Member" .... this conjures up all sorts of interesting punchlines..... all I know is I wanna post 20 more times so I can be called "Active" !!

:cool:

(Or maybe it has nothing to do with post count...???)

I think they should reverse it. You should become a "used member" after being an "active" member!

It has to do with "trophy points". No idea how those "points" are earned.

Are those the next gradients? Now we're "used" then amused? I hate to think we're "abused" though ....

actually, i wonder what makes a "used"member. i checked the OP's post count and he has 32 or something, not a total newbie, but not over 100 either. no idea - maybe it's a glitch. i say we go back to the scout board! ;)

Just posting to see what kind of member I am.

I have been very busy lately and have been lurking but not posting much.

As long as I am not an "expired" or "dead" Member, I am not going to complain.

"Used Member" means either the Mods think you're just about played out on this board or your Doctor has given you a diagnosis of ED.

Uh, Padre...If you were previously known as Icebear and you are now known as Icebear, isn't that going to get just a little confusing? I mean, how will we know whether we are addressing the previous Icebear or the present Icebear? Or were you just pretending to be Icebear before, and now you really are? Or is it that you are still Icebear, but are now unknown? or...or...MY BRAIN HURTS!!!

Last time I looked, I am still "new." At my age, I'll take it, especially since I am so "used" and no longer very "active."

Clearly you confusion means it is a successful signature. Appreciating CatCamille's sig I thought I'd have a little fun. After all, I was formerly known as icebear and I still am.

What do you plan to be known in the future? BTW- I agree with Kib. I'll take anything "new" I can get.

If I remember my grammar correctly it is an expression of the "present perfect continuous" or "future perfect continuous." I cannot say what I will be known as in the future, maybe Bob or some form of four letter word. Someday I will be known as dead.

I move that Icebear's new Poster Identification System Standard be adopted forthwith, and damn the civil rights activists!

I thought that was "civility rights" ICE was suggesting!:)

How about adding a "retread" member? Definition: needs new sneakers before the season starts.

Listen, while I have most of you bears' attention, such as it is, I have a bone to pick with you. I have read that bears are forcing the stock market down, and I really think you ought to stop it! And that is no bull.

I'm on vacation and just noticed that I have been upgraded from "New Member" to "Popular Poster." Obviously, there has been a mistake--but don't tell anyone!

Aloha from sunny, 87 degree Waikiki!
