I have been leaning to make a thread like this for a couple of months, and finally it's here. It might seem to be pointless to have such a thread or record right now, but I believe
after a few years, it will be interesting/worthy to see how people being active in this forum has been changing year by year.
The following are the major standards I use:
1. The member logs into this forum averagely not less than 2-3 times a week.
2. The member has posted a few times recently, or has new posts every now and then.
3. The member has the latest year's Nova/Stella favorites.
#3 is the least important, but it's helpful for me to decide some edge situations. If #2 is satisfied while #1 is not, it's still possible for the member to be recorded. Overall, the standards are somewhat flexible. I try to be as objective as possible, but there are indeed some tricky ones. As a result, everybody willing to go through the record list is very welcomed to give his/her amending suggestions. I plan on updating the record every half a year, or may be every 3 months, which depends.
Note: If any of you feels awkward to see your name being recorded, feel free to send private message to me, and I will remove your name immediately.
I think I'm the best person to keep updating this record. Here are a few reasons. First of all, I have a habit of viewing WHO IS ONLINE
every time I'm in this forum, and my good memory makes it possible for me to be familiar with all the names. Secondly, I use the View new posts
button to view new replies, so I know which members have posted recently very well (this is helpful to deal with hidden online status members). Thirdly, I'm a person having the characteristic of being precise in real life, so I will make this record as exact & fair as possible. Lastly, I think it's that I would like to spend time on this <3, and I will be an active forum member for many years. I'm not trying to convince anybody, but giving these reasons just in case you're curious why I'm doing this.
