My 1991 3288 has been kept in fresh water all her life.
I'm moving her to salt water to save a lot of travel time. Its 10 miles up the river everytime I go out and 10 miles back...often in a strong current.
I figure the move will save me 2 or more hours every trip. The marina I'm moving to is in the States and the price of fuel and booze will also save $.
I hope Im doing the right thing

In the upper right hand corner there is an option to rate the thread. I just gave it 5 stars. ;)

I believe 100 posts gets you to Senior level.

Not sure about that, I kinda think that I may have been catagorized as senior shortly after joining.

I did not pay much attention to the senior thing, I thought it was an age thing.

I just learned there is a rating to threads, I just try to help and learn as well as the entertainment.

The senior thing is over-rated. You can change it to anything you want, except "Cantre Member.";)

You would be, but you have a Custom Title (Xanadu 3270) If you were to delete that, then the default setttings kick in.

From the FAQ section in the dark blue bar below the BOC logo:

You may find a small menu on thread pages which allows you to 'rate this thread' with a number between 1-5.
Casting a vote for threads you view is entirely optional, but if you think that the thread is superb, you might rate it as a 5-star thread, or if you think that it's unspeakably dismal, you might choose to rate the thread with a single star.
Once enough votes have been cast for the thread rating, you may see a set of stars appear with the title of the thread in the thread listings. These stars reflect the average vote cast, and can allow you to quickly see which threads are worth reading if you are on a very busy forum with a lot of threads.


as far as "Senior Member" listed under some names...

If the administrator has enabled custom status titles, then you can specify the text you want to display by editing your profile and entering the text you want in the Custom User Text field.
