Re: OK....TELL ME WHAT I CAN TALK ABOUT?

I presume you have read the heading about this board..

 

"Here forum members can unwind and get to know each other. Come over to the Lounge for a virtual cup of tea and a chat about your favourite films, hobbies, sports, holidays and more"

 

You have posted on a few boards and are obviously not happy so perhaps you could discuss that provided it stays within the forum guidelines

 

https://community.bt.com/t5/Announcements-Terms/BTCare-Community-Forums-User-Guidelines-Updated-03-0...

 

and the boards house rules, which I suspect is what you are not happy about.

Re: OK....TELL ME WHAT I CAN TALK ABOUT?

Right...first of all you can make the tea...little milk and no sugar for me.

 

I have posted mainly on the thread I started, and I am very happy with the outcome,  you obvioulsy haven't read it through to its ultimate conclusion.....I have halved what I was paying for the same products/service.

 

I have no problem wih the boards house rules.

 

In fact, I have no problem at all.

I have no idea! The titles are added by the forum, presumably it is linked to the amount of posts and solutions that you provide. It certainly does not necessarily reflect the ability or knowledge of the person and I include myself in that.

You post here.  A lot.  It helps if you've got nothing else to do in the evenings (or during the day, or whenever).  The more you post, the higher your "status".  So far as I can tell, there's no connection between your "status" and the usefulness of your posts, though I might be wrong on that.

 

Of course, the posts have to be within the community guidelines, or the mods may decide to ban you.  They seem to show a bit of leniency to regulars who go a bit too far occasionally, and just edit the posts instead.

Ectophile I seem to recall from about 3 or 4 years ago when I first ventured onto this forum that the ranking was not purely on the number of posts but also on how the value of your posts were perceived - presumably by the mods but possibly also by how many "stars" you had been given by other forum members.

You may well be right.  They could be including the number of times your post is starred, or how often your post is the accepted answer.

I think that is correct as my rating rose quickly when I first starting posting as I had a high number of starred posts and some accepted answers.
