hearty salutations Can't Post

Greetings. Just joined (last night). Still trying to get a feel for this site. I'm a former university professor (and occasional univ. administrator)--25 years in that rapidly-devolving career--and now I'm moving on to other things, which includes writing and--sometime next month--"completing" a draft of my first novel.

Just a couple of questions. Is this site always as quiet as it seems to be--i.e., many members but few active ones--or have I just popped in during a slow period?

Also, I see that I'm listed as a "new user" (somewhere?), but I also see others listed as "user" (hmm, this is starting to sound a bit like rehab!), "novice," "veteran," "moderator" and clearly there must be additional tiers or categories of membership. Is there a sticky or thread somewhere that I cannot locate that discusses the hierarchy and all the specifics? Just want to make sure in advance how important the toes I'm stepping on truly are!

Thanks in advance. I'm looking forward to "meeting" you.

Welcome, typeWpersonality! Can we call you typeW for short?

The classifications are based purely on how many messages you have posted, except for 'moderator,' which can only be bestowed by the gods. The secret classifications are not visible, of course, except to those who have been through the initiation. You will be contacted if you are eligible. Look for a red feather in your mailbox.

Thanks, pongo. Sure, typeW's fine; I've been called a lot worse! And thanks for the red feather (as in one's cap?) alert. Just making sure I hadn't overlooked the obvious. Cheers!

Welcome typeW!

Just remember that we writers tend to be solitary sorts. I consider whatever time I spend here, as mad socializing.
