Just thinking...dangerous when I do that sometimes, but,what determines my message board status and at what point do I earn a second countdown timer? I'm at the Tourist level but have been a member since 2009. Funny I remember different labels before now. If it's not time, then is it merely the number of posts? Maybe it's the number of threads started? At times it feels like I could chase the status here like chasing status at MLife or CET. I get the association with the casinos...low-roller, high-roller, whale etc. Again, just thinking..it really doesn't matter since I enjoy the board especially during those sometimes agonizingly long gaps between Vegas visits, I live vicariously through everyone's posts, so I thank you.
