I have read your post twice, and am still not sure if you are saying that using "Martenson Brigade" is a good thing or not? 🙂
I do understand what you mean about the noise, but something is telling me that we have a duty to wander into the main section now and again to give our thoughts on some of the better questions raised.
I like the idea of martenson brigade label.
I too think we have some "duty" to contribute on the main forums from time to time, however, I’m guilty of not doing so.
I have read your comments on this idea and have decided to do the following:
All Martenson Brigade members will be given the "Martenson Brigade" title override. If you specifically do not want this title and wish to have your "bronze, silver, gold" status restored, simply contact me and I will change it back. In other words, you need to "opt-out" of the "Martenson Brigade" status. This does not mean you aren’t a MB member, just that you prefer to be rated on your volume of posts rather than your association with the Martenson Brigade.
These changes will be rolled out by Tuesday.
Thanks for the feedback
I know I said I’d have this by Tuesday and I apologize for not making that happen. I have been busy working with Erik on some changes to the Martenson Brigade application process as well as with things at my day job. I will make the changes by week’s end
Thanks for your patience!
Yep no problem. In the long run, this isn’t a very pressing issue. Nice to know you didn’t forget, though =]
I know I said I would do this over a week ago, and I apologize for the delay.
I have changed all active Brigade members’ titles to "Martenson Brigade Member".
As stated before, if you do not wish to have the title override your "bronze, silver, gold" member status, please email me and I will change it back.
Thanks Luc, it looks great =]
Just noticed that a couple of us (including me) posting to the brigade forums have "New Member" as the title.
Sorry, I must’ve missed a few. If you know who they are, can you please post their usernames so I can get them changed over?
Just saw Dogs In A Pile and emdiaz. MGhandi says "Full Member" – may be what he wants.
