A couple of the boards that I visit have ranks for members. The more posts you make, the higher your rank. I'm thinking of doing the same thing here so I'm looking for input on names for ranks.
  • 1-25 posts = newbie
  • 26-50 posts=user
  • 50-100 = old hand
  • etc.
Except I want Island related titles! So here's your chance to get involved. Let me know what the rank titles should be:
  • 1-25 =
  • 26-50=
  • 51-100=
  • 101-150=
  • 151-250=
  • 251-400=
  • 401-600=
  • 601-800=
  • 801-1000= Carpal Tunnel Laughing j/k


Get your creative spirit flowing! The winner(s) of this contest will receive...???

Rob

Nobody has any suggestions, or are you still thinking?

I've got the rank images set up, as you may have noticed, once you hit 15 posts you get A few people have hit that level already. After that, the images change at 51, 101, 151 and end at 251 with

The prize(s) will be a personal bois-blanc.com ( yourname@bois-blanc.com ) e-mail address and some personal web space at bois-blanc.com ( www.yourname.bois-blanc.com or www.bois-blanc.com/~yourname ) . I'll even help you as much as I can setting up your web space. If I end up mixing and matching submissions there will be more than one winner.

Any takers?

Very good work sisters! (every time I type "sisters" I can't help but think of the TV show the Waltons, sorry Rolling Eyes ) I still like beach glass hoarder. That was me, not Kirsten in the previous post. Black Fly Bait will for sure be the entry level rank. That's great!

Anybody else have any input??? Even a name or two would be great!

I always thought the new clueless tourists were called fudgies. Or was that just on Mackinac?

We thought of that and yes, it comes from Mackinaw, so I didn't want to associate it with BBI. We also thought of a troll one because we live under the bridge..... Thank you for Lana's addy, Troy!

The new tourists should be called "Lost Boys" - every day in the summer there are people who stop for cold water and directions to the county road Laughing The ones we like we offer brew to.
