Welcome board.

Hey Nick, good to hear from you. How are you doing?

Les, we need to change the member titles, and start offering goodies for reaching new levels.

Something like this:

0-49 postings; Serf -- you work for free, and give us half your crop;
50 postings; Peasant -- you can keep all of your crop;
100 postings; Apprentice -- a dough cutter;
250 postings; Journeyman -- a pizza cutter;
500 postings; Master Builder -- a 5-pack of Caputo flour;
1000 postings; Pizzaiolo -- A Molino Caputo T-shirt;

What do you think of the levels and titles?
James

Les,

A measly 100, eh? You've only got 526 to go to come up to my level, nyah, nyah . I'll go with the Master Builder title; sounds pretty fine to me. Already got the Caputo, courtesy James. Great stuff it is, too.

Cheers,
Jim

Jim,

I definitely have some work to do to get to your level, and your input has been awesome! But come on, you get flour, where as I get a DOUGH CUTTER - that's got to be the holy grail of the forum.

Back to the sand - would fine be considered a #30?

Les...
