    Smile Ranks of Forum Members

    There're serveral ranks for the forum members from Newbie, Junior Member, Senior Member, Key Member to VIP Member.

    I am a key Member now. And I wonder how many posts I should put up, and then turn me into a VIP Member. And is the rank of VIP Member highest here except for moderators?

    If you happen to know, please tell me. Thanks!

    Hi Daffodils, you become a vip after 5,000 posts, I don't think that it is really a question of rank though, is it?

    Yes, Bhaisahab! The quantities of ours are close. Let's see who will reach it first.

    Merci!

    The ranks & post numbers can be seen here: UsingEnglish.com ESL Forum - FAQ: UsingEnglish.com Members' FAQ
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    Re: Ranks of Forum Members

    It is what you contribute to the language in your posts and friendship amongst members that matters. This ranking business is just like giving promotions in a company to keep the employee happy.
    The number of thanks reflect your usefulness to the others.
