No, I am forever a Webkinz.
I will never want to be a "Webkinz Signature."
NEVER.

Sorry, just my opinion.

Something to think about:

I believe that basing any kind of reward - status, gifts, reputation, etc. -- solely on post count is not really fair.

Those who have the free time to do so can sometimes post several hundred times in a single DAY. Especially on something like the "counting" threads, it would be easy for someone to get their post count way, way up without ever doing anything more than simply posting numbers.
Now, that is fun, we all know it! ....but it doesn't make a particularly profound addition to the community, does it?

Then there are those folks who may only have time to post once or twice a week, but who make helpful, thoughtful posts. Basing a new status on post count alone would be like saying the number-post people are "more valuable" or have "higher status" than the infrequent posters......and that wouldn't do at all, would it?

My suggestion?
If we decided to add another level of status, I would make it be based on time in the forum.
For example, Gift Gurus who pass the 1-year mark would be eligible to be made a Perennial Guru - and get their pretty new color ; )

Just my two cents worth : )

I do like the idea, but after reading mommaluvsmush's post, I'm kind of torn. I mean, it's a really good idea.. and I love it! But she's right, that basing it off of just post count isn't really that fair, since some people don't get much time online. Now maybe if it was.. you have to apply to be one & they just open up more picture space or something and you have to have, say, so much rep and then so many non-fluff posts (kind of like applying to be a GT) it would be more fair, right? So like I said, I like the idea but mommaluvsmush does have a point. (:

in my opinion, statuses give you a privilege or whatnot.
i don't see how anyone above a webkinz could be beneficial other than knowing who makes more helpful posts and who doesn't... which is also very easy to see by just looking around the forums.

i'm not trying to bash anyone, but when you see those sites with like 15 different statuses and colors all over the forums, it just gets rather obnoxious and unneeded.

i think all the statuses are fine as is since they all serve their purposes.

Great thoughts on this! I understand that it doesn't serve a huge purpose to add a change. It's just that I've seen and heard a bunch of people who aren't into Webkinz World anymore, and I think it would sort of breathe some new life into their experience here. Just a goal to work toward that would be interesting to them, and also be helpful to WI. It would be bringing back in some members that maybe feel like they've outgrown even this site. I hate to read that people are leaving here. A new challenge might help with that.
Status quo is sometimes good, but sometimes boring to some of the members here. I think this might help hold on to some members that are losing interest.
To be really honest, one of the things that I love about WI is that they have listened to the members, and keep adjusting to meet the desires and needs of all of us. This change would be to hold on to some of the members that are leaving or thinking about leaving. The site is changing, and more and more members are just not into WW anymore, but they want to stay here. To some, this change is not necessary. I hope that this is not just turned down because it's something new and different. Not every new idea gets out of control.

Personally, I find it utterly pointless. As a few have already said, statuses should grant you some kind of privilege, not just the joy of the new title.

Now, think about it.
If they create the status of "Signature Webkinz", people are going to want more statuses. That means creating things such as "Webkinz Jr" and "Webkinz Rocker" and whatever else people might start wanting. I'm not implying that everyone would want new statuses, but I'm sure some people would. And after awhile, it's hard to think up some privileges for each status.

Honestly, with that in mind, it isn't worth making up a new status.

I agree with Desty here.

The idea is pretty good in my opinion, but 100 posts, I think personally is not much of a goal. It should be around 10,000 or something I think. Also the members who become "Signatures" or whatever it would be should be remarkably helpful and such. (: It wouldn't be like Gifted of course, because you have to apply for that and it's for trading.
