How many days did it take for your WP account to reach veteran status? I think I reached it on the fourth day but I was not really paying that much attention...

I don't remember now. I began in 2016 and probably reached Veteran status in early 2017. Some days, my posting volume is quite high and, on others, when there is nothing to say, I make maybe one or two posts, usually on the "Replace With Cat" or another similarly light topic thread.

It took ages. I do a lot of lurking and end up not posting 90% of the stuff I write.

I don't remember. I didn't post much in the very beginning because I made a dear friend and spent most of my time on PM rather than the forum. My post count is high because I play a lot of word games and I post a lot of music. I try to avoid the contentious topics, and I don't respond ad nauseam to the same conversations and debates. I usually read the OP and skip the responses if they seem to veer off topic.

It took quite a while for me to reach 500.

But it took much less time for me to reach 1,000 and above.

Beats me. I was posting to around 5 other forums at the time.

For me, when I latch onto something new, I put all my attention into it. So I was posting and posting and posting... Then I start to slow down... Also, as the subjects in here were new to me I had lots of questions to explore. So maybe why I posted so many replies.

I have a rough idea as I was amused by the different names... Emu egg? Things like that.

Its probably based upon number of posts, and not on the number of days that you have been a member.

Treuno has been a member longer than you, and it took him "forever" to get veteran status. And it took you just four days.

Just taking a wild guess ...the magic number is probably a 500 to achieve the status.

Years. :lol:

This account has been registered at 2011 and somewhat stopped somewhere before 300 or so posts.
I've only became more active around year 2015 or later. When I got active, it might've took me about weeks to reach the veteran status.

Oh dear... I hope I have not posted too much? I assumed most took just a few days to get there? :oops:

Everyone has their own reasons.


Some types and/or reads really slowly and has to think to consider posting anything really -- and it had nothing to do with being busy.
Many will not reply, not even a thanks, even being thankful for whatever they had stumbled upon.
Some, are quite cautious because they thought they are thread killers and had ruined the thread by just posting. :lol:

And there are many more why.

It takes 500 posts to become a veteran. Your average is 29.71 posts per day. So you probably became a veteran in about two weeks. No worries though. In your case quality is in keeping with quantity.
