I may not have made O.F. status, but last time I checked I had over 1000 posts on the old forum. I was hoping I'd get grandfathered past "newbie" on the new forum ;) Dickson

The beauty of being a newbie is that you can ask really stupid questions and have an excuse.

Nope, sorry! At least it's better than "stranger." It made me feel like a child molester or something of that nature. I think once you hit 30 or so you get upgraded to "Tire-Kicker" Then at 50 you're a "beginner." I think 100 is a "wrench turner but I'm not there yet.

Maybe today....

Now I feel like I have to reply to find out what I am.

I can't wait till what some of those names get after 100 and 200 posts... tire kicker I hear at 100? What's 1000? Lee Iacocca? :)

I started out at newbie so just how do I get to be a stranger?

I know what you mean, I was only 112 posts short of 2,000 on the old forum. At least I'm a stranger here (better than just being strange). *LOL*
