    or maybe an overlord, if that's all you've got.

    "thaumaturgist" is the rank title for the message board admin (me, the big cheese. hehe! [​IMG] ). Then I have "overlord" as the title for forum moderators. Then "summoner" as the title for regular members with over 50 posts (I'm thinking about lowering this number to like 30... yeah, I'm gonna lower that after I post this). Then "neophyte" is the title for members with under the minimum number for summoner status. k? k.

    So when you get over 30 posts then you will be summoner.

    You can find out by clicking on that little icon above your posts that has the little face with the question mark to the right of it. That's your general status for the board. *checking* right now you have 21 posts.

    Changing the summoner threshold from 50 to 30 was a good idea, but don't go any lower. It is fine where it is. You don't want everyone to be a summoner, now do you?

    I actually sell both Macs and PCs. But I'm like THE Mac expert there. So any Mac sales and Mac tech questions usually go to me. There is one other Mac guy but he's only part time. If they just want a computer to go online and do school work and stuff, then I usually steer them towards something like the iMac. But the goal that has been bestowed upon me is to make profit for the store, not to evangelize the Mac.

    It's kinda funny, people I sell Macs to never call me with tech questions. But people I sell PCs to become a royal pain in the butt! Every hour they call and ask for Jake. "Hey Jake, I bought that system yesterday, remember? How do I do this really stupid thing that would be so easy on a Mac?" Well, they don't say it exactly like that [​IMG] . But it's close enough.

    At least you didn't have to teach teachers how to use their computers. Every day it was "Hey Spock (not my real name, changed to protect the stupid), How do I do this really stupid thing that would be so easy on a Mac that I asked you about yesterday? I forgot."
