Title: "The Denny Level"
Post by: BrewingRover on August 02, 2010, 09:15:44 PM
I noticed Denny's posting level is now The Denny Level, LOL. I assume that's for over 2000 posts, which gives us all something to which to aspire.

Yup, apparently Drew has too much free time. I would imagine it'll be a moving target - since no one will ever actually catch up to Denny, they'll just keep moving the goalposts.

Haven't quite decided yet, but I'm thinking the group has been assembled long enough now..

What should the posting levels be?

Here are the current counts and "titles"
Newbie 0
Jr. Member 50
Full Member 100
Sr. Member 250
Hero Member   500
The Denny Level 2000

Taster
Apprentice
Brewer
Brewmaster
Denny

Could we replace "barrel maker" with "cellarman"? That would be more like the progression at a brewery.

Maybe "Asst Brewer" instead of just Brewer too... I really like the idea though.

I view the cellerman as a skilled job.  At least in England it is.  Enough so that there was an excellent talk on it at the NHC.

Kegwasher would be the entry level position.

If anyone has seen Gordon Strong and "1st kit", and has not chuckled due to the incongruety of those being together, let me know.  Or maybe this has all been a conspiracy by Denny, Drew, and Fred?  Hmmmm.

Hey Denny...can't he get an honorary title of sorts?
Title: Re: "The Denny Level"
Post by: euge on August 11, 2010, 06:51:48 PM
This has been niggling at me for a while. Considering how prolific some of us can be. Aren't some of these levels set a little low? Maybe the intermediate like Brewer & Brewmaster should be at least 1000 posts or more?

I just can't shake that it might be a little intimidating for new members when so many members will display "Brewmaster". Maybe make the requirement to transition from "Assistant-brewer" to "Brewer" to "Brewmaster" a little more realistic.

Not to take away titles from anyone- I'd gladly give mine up. Just an idea.

Title: Re: "The Denny Level"
Post by: theDarkSide on August 12, 2010, 12:48:04 PM
Does it really matter?

Good point.  I never look at post count as a gauge of knowledge.  On other forums, there are people who have very low post counts but have forgotten more about brewing than I'll ever know.  Then there are people who have high post counts but eventually get banned from said forums for being a douche.

It doesn't take long to figure out who knows what their talking about.

I see where you're going with this and think I agree but I'm not sure that keg washing requires no skill... cleaning may be the highest priority skill any of us should have.   :D

Exactly. My point with the "does it matter" comment was a reaction to people taking it perhaps a bit too seriously.

In my house, I'm all levels (deep, huh?). Especially cellarman. My wife won't go down there.
Title: Re: "The Denny Level"

LOL Denny's now a "brewmaster"... just like the rest of us. ;D

It is fun How about next year at this time when more people have thousands of posts? Couldn't there be some "hidden levels" albeit with amusing titles? For example such as @ 4000 might produce something witty and random based on the high post count.
