I think I was initially afraid to post in a forum because I'd never done so before, lol.  I know, pathetic.  After making an account on here, though, after we won the title, lol, I really never posted regularly until last season, I believe (and I'm sure that most people would prefer that I had continued that trend, lol ;D), so it was kind of funny to see my average posts per day be under, like .3, lol, so I just wanted to just get my average over 1, haha. ;D You see, guys - anything is possible (sarcasm)! ;D Woot, woot!  I need to start setting goals for myself, lol. ;) ;D

That aside, I never thought that there was a master list for posts or anything.  I just like Tommy Points. ;D

Tonight I turn from Ray Allen into Bailey Howell!
I've been turned back into Ray Allen!  Bummer.  I really don't like this arbitrary reclassification.

If you've got a non-arbitrary way of assigning post-based member groups on a basketball message board, let us know.
Instead of being sarcastic, just tell me why 2000-2999 was changed from Bailey Howell to Ray Allen. My issue is not with assigning names to ranges, but why the names have to change for given ranges. Now I will never get to be Jim Luscotoff, for example. My next level is Antoine Walker 3000-3999, unless of course the names assigned change again.

When somebody new is added, that shifts things.  If it's that important to be Locsy, you can start over with a Surferdad 2.0 account.

I understand that this is important to you, but in the grand scheme of life, it's fairly trivial (and is meant to be). 

Ray Allen made more of an impact for the Celtics. He played here longer, and made more All-star games.  Thus, his rank is higher (but still relatively low, due to the way he left town).
You missed my point entirely. It's not that I want to be Locsy specifically, but it is a fun little game to aspire to the next level. Sure it's not life or death but so what? It was fun to think about racking up another thousand posts this season and get elevated to the next level. I was Bailey Howell for a few hundred posts, now I feel like I am back one level.

Also, I don't really care what the rationale was for certain players at different levels and whether they were of higher historical stature or not. I really just want the rules to not change in this little game of "poster's prestige" we play.

Can we just have the ranks not include current players, so that we don't have to shuffle them all the time?

Interesting idea, and the opportunity might be presenting itself now, especially at the higher post ranks because the team has no transcendent players currently. Would be great to just freeze the names and their ranks for all levels greater than 1000 posts.

They're static for now, and the 1000+ levels probably will be for awhile, unless Danny pulls a rabbit out of his hat.

I'm not ignorant to your point, but honestly, having a lot of posts on an internet message board isn't that prestigious.  If anything, it just gets you a lot of well-deserved grief from your spouse.  If you haven't had the pleasure, just trust me on this one.

I feel like Rajon Rondo should now be in the thousands mark.

IIRC, The Rajon Rondo rank is in the hundreds? I think he earned the thousands.

It moved up, which is what prompted this particular bump of the thread.

He's at 5000 now.

The goal is Larry Bird. I hope this site is open until for 15 more years. If so, I might just get there.

And maybe Larry Legend status can be 33,000 posts. Just an idea.

Lol. My wife actually enjoys me watching the Celtics and posting in the game threads. It saves her from hearing my dumb comments and saves me from seeing her roll her eyes, like she doesn't care, when I tell her how bad KO is playing.

She especially hates it when I rewind the DVR. ;)

Ever think about trading Ray Allen for someone else? I am definitely not looking forward to being him for 1000 posts and there are certainly a lot of people that don't consider him a true Celtic.

Edit: Just saw somebody wanted him higher. Guess you can't win. Also just was missing the days you could give negative tommy points. That was the greatest invention.

James did tell the Cavs before the decision aired. It was right before but it was still before.  And the decision raised a couple million dollars for the Boys and Girls Club. That is why he did it. He did it for charity.

They had negative Tommy Points here at one time? I'm guessing it caused some controversy and fights back and forth, which is probably why it was done away with.  That's probably the same reason FB won't create a dislike button lol

I had a lot of fun with TP-Gate. Its too bad some took it as accusatory and not in the humorous manner it was meant as.
