Jerry: Some members of this forum have been mounted reenactors for a decade or more. At what point do "Fresh Fish" (FF) become something more? Also why do members of your 1st Maine even though they are relativley new, get a pass on the designation of FF?

Wayne, I believe that the title only applies to the user's account and in no way is meant to imply anything other than the user is new to this forum. Additionally after a set number of posts the title changes to Trooper (20, I think). At any rate, I wouldn't get hung up on labels or titles here. Best, Dave

The forum's system has member groups some of which are based on number of messages posted. It allows me to name and set the number of messages for several of the precanned groups. In "" are the names I chose for those groups:
Group "Name"/ # of Posts to gain that level Administrator "Provost" / Appointed Global Moderator "Captain" / Appointed Moderator "Lieutenant" / Appointed New Member "Fresh Fish" / 0 Junior Member "Trooper" / 10 Full Member "Corporal" / 50 Senior Member "Sergeant" / 100 God "Fist Sergeant" / 200
At this time, there's no real benefit to gaining any of these "rank" other than having the title appearing near your name.
I can make certain sections of the forum available only to members of certain groups, like Sergeants for example. I have created a section for members of my outfit only and hense the group "Mainer." Members of this group can see and access a section of the forum available only to them and we use it as a backup communications link for the unit.
We had such sections on the old Delphi forum, but access was controlled on an individual basis and not by "group membership."

As a new member of this forum, I have no problem being a "fresh fish"...especially when I consider my age and reennactment history! First event - 1967. Did cavalry for a couple of decades including some movie work.
