That's all I've thought of every time I've seen 'Gold Member' next to someone's name...is that what Bernhard was thinking about when he created the member hierachy?

Due to the current economy all crowns and scepters have been put on hold.. Please visit your closest Burger King to procure your temporary crown.

I recently achieved "Platinum" status, and I was stoked. Wow! 1500 posts! What's next?!?!?

...then I noticed that Gruntersdad has about 5200 posts and is STILL Platinum. Kind of takes all of the point of posting anything away. I mean, if you don't go up in some artificial status value from spending more and more time in front of a computer, it almost makes me want to go outside and get some exercise or something silly like that...

It's a joke from the Austin Powers movie. It's a line Michael Caine's character (Austin's dad) says.

Well, once attaining the Platinum status, one has in essence attained the status as King. there is no where to go once you become King.

Once a King, always a King.
Once a Knight's enough.

I believe it is also the name of the statute awarded to the winners of the adult film academy.

Don't mind me, I'm just posting here because I'm too lazy to find another one of my posts to find out what my post count is :-)

edit: Senior Member, eh? Got a nice ring to it.

On a little forum I administrate I have tried to create as many member ranks as possible. I think they go up to about 50,000 or so, just in case. There are some that only exist for only one post. What fun!

As a matter of fact I believe the quote is "There's two things I can't stand: people who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch!" I have the movie on DVD but can't be bothered to look it up, that movie kills brain cells!
