• Please note this new thread in the Announcements forum regarding updated management of the site. Jeff Duda has agreed to assume ownership and lead management responsibilities during what is anticipated to be a 3-12-month interim period while we perform some updates to the site, including changing the hosting. The staff will do their best to provide timely and transparent updates throughout this transition period.

  • A website update occured last week that rendered some of the page display styles obsolete. If you have logged onto the site and are experiencing a strange or messy appearance, it is likely due to this factor. An inadvertent mistake in the meantime likely made this issue worse. It has hopefully now been fixed. See this thread for details on the fix. --Jeff

"Member" status: a technical and philosophical issue!

Take cover! Take cover! Stormtrack algorithm is no more under control!
"Member status achieved!" looks like a thing of the past...
What is "Member" status?!
You now have 5 "likes" which gives you "Member" status.
However it seems a lot of members have many more "likes" but are still "Apprentices"...
Is it a EF0 or EF1 bug?! Or maybe a EF2 if the other thresholds (300 and 1000 likes) are impacted...
OK, I understand that, actually, we are apprentices all our life... ;)
