Hey! Just noticed I seem to have become an "Advanced Member" on the forums. How does this happen?

Me too. It means we're in charge, Allan.

 

Bow down to your reptilian overlords, you Alamy drones, and feel our power...

i think is just a rightful acknowledgement of the innate genius of each of you and the beneficial influence of living in Cambridge and the Lake District respectively, of which I am deeply jealous in both cases.

Could be age related (LOL)

My mother was a Lancashire lass. Although I have only passed through on occasions I believe it is a photogenic part of our blessed isle.

You will be an Advanced Member one day. :P

There's only one place to go beyond Advanced Member: (can't re)member.

Think it is reserved for people with over 500 posts.

 

Thanks for that.

 

You don't have far to go yourself then. :)  Then you will be one of the elite too. ;)

There's an exclusive lounge - for the use of Advanced Members only - where we can relax, drink free coffee and enjoy a neck massage....

I've been given it and David hasn't. No logic in that.

Alas! I am still a mere member. But, I do originate from Leicester.

I believe we all went back the to rank of 'Nobody Important' when this new forum started.  All the previous medals weren't carried over so it was a fresh start. 

 

Most forums that I am on seem base their ranking on new topics started and number of replies etc.

Regardless of VIP status. This is much nicer civilised forum than the old one. It seems that Alamy took full advantage of the change to get rid of certain irritants.

There's something terribly wrong here, Allen. I too am an Advanced Member, yet David K, who is about 467.6% more useful to this forum than either of us, is just a Member. In your case, it might be the Cambridge connection. Perhaps Alamy is afraid you might somehow be connected with Kim Philby. I on the other hand have an Oxford connection. I didn't actually attend anything at Oxford, unless pub lunches count, but I stayed with a grad student in Summertown for a year and lived in Woodstock for a time.

It is NOT a reflection of any of your physical attributes......and before the preening gets out of hand it is the quantity - not the quality (this is a light hearted attempt at humour - not a dig at anyone with a thin skin !!

 

:)  :)

 

Two words with secondary meanings like that would not wait long in the Danish language without getting more dirty remarks...

When I saw the subject "Advanced Member" I thought  "Oh no!  Now the old guys are discussing their favorite senior porn movies".  So of course I was disappointed to find much ado about nothing.

Must be determined by an algorithm containing  ones reputation  and number of forum posts?

And here I was thinking it had something to do with grey beards.

As a fairly modest (limited) poster, both  myself and the 'Dog of Death' have noticed that the previous Avatar seemed to attract a large number of instances where the slash of the 'Blue Pencil' swiftly followed - either by our summary dismissal, or worse still the dreaded 'Poster Padlock'........

 

Just to avoid the charge of drifting Off Topic I would point out that this posting is to progress my journey towards Advanced Membership - and I really am trying to avoid mentioning the Scheming Newspapers Arrangements - honestly !
