Okay, I have started reading and writing things on this sight for maybe a year, and I am still a Junior Member! I changed from a new member to a junior member a while ago. How many messages do I have to write to be a different kind of member? Some people who have been on for only 3 weeks are already Senior Members.
i think it has alot to do with your post count, but what difference does it really make. your member ranking does not affect your posting abilities. there are no extra privilidges awarded for becoming a senior member. although some would beg to differ.
to be honest when i first joined I would look at things the Sr membors said befor others because i though it was rated on the kind of posts they made like if someone asked for advice on there dog puking and someone said dont worry about it then anther said the chicken rice think and take it to the vet asap I figured the good advice would get more points.
