IMHO I have to agree its better with raised levels.
But I would prefer to have a less strict system (lower/longer levels). But I had no problem earlier and its aint a problem for me with the new system either .
0-100 posts : Junior member
100-300 : member
300- : Senior member
and the title AO addicts added to Senior members who contributes a lots to AO.

Yup, it´s a good thing. But what I lack is a msg about it in "New features".

Yep good stuph, seems JP has gone with general opinion on the changing of the staus. Gets my marks. Echo what pooh-bear says about a thread on it in new features.

I'm all for the new system too. I was at AO for only a short while, didn't feel like a senior member at all. If you wanna be a senior, you gotta put in the hard yards! Nice work JP.

I agree(even though it lowered my status)..the former system was a bit misleading to new members. I think Sr status should only be acheived by merit however and not the # of posts(like to the world's longest thread)
Maybe site-related posts would be a better method??

I think the change is a bad one. Not only because I'm classified as a newbie even though I've been visiting and participating in this website since 1999, but also because the thought of number of posts determining seniority on the board, and access to other areas is dissappointing. I guess I'm just going to have to reply to posts and say stuff like, "Yea" or "I agree" in the body of the post, so that I can not be seen as a newbie.
Edit: Oh, jeez, look! I have become a Junior Member simply by replying to this thread and bitching about the new system. Obviously that means I should have a more respected member status. HA...riiiiight

I still dont feel worthy of my senior member status, but I am very glad JP listened to my suggestion.

I agree with antihaxor and wizeman. Status shouldn't be bassed on number of posts. It should be some crazy mathmatical function that includes time involved, time online, use of features, antipoints, etc etc. I used to see a lot of people that were senior members in only a couple of weeks, and they never posted anything that would be considered slightly useful. Maybe we should only have like 5 senior members, and everyone vote on who they are or something. I don't know, I just felt like posting so I could get my membership level raised also.
