    Having worked two stints on James Webb, I'd be happy to take a JWST t-shirt off your hands. (And if you run low on takers I'll take three - I have an uncle and a cousin both named James Webb Parker.)
    Everything I need to know I learned through Googling.

    Now thats what I call making a personal plea. If it's true... You win.

    But; if ToSeek doesn't, or there's any chance for a leftover or if I even have a chance. I'll take one.

    I'd be interested in the Meatball pin. And the Compass of Unknown Origin... with a name like that, how can you go wrong.

    In addition to treasure, how much experience did I get?

    I'd eat the roll right away, so don't throw it to me! Also bread, croissants, etc.

    I've got too much stuff of all sorts around the house now, but as a member of the order of kilopi and financial contributor, I'd wouldn't mind having a CQ T-shirt if there is such a thing.

    The postdoc is rather expensive. She needs to pay rent, after all.

    As I understand it, kilopians = senior members, in that it's same # of posts? Which made me LOL when I FINALLY figured it out...

    IIRC kilopi has one or two extras, like more room in PM box.

    I don't think we actually have senior members.

    Normally it goes:
    Newbie: Below secret number of posts (lots)
    Member: Above secret number of posts (4936 of this level or higher)
    Established Member: 100 posts or more (1593 of this level or higher)
    Order of Kilopi: 3142 posts or more (138 [except for the weirdness of Grapes' multiple accounts most of which lost post counts in the moves])
    Honored Member: Posthumous only (2)

    In the Order of Kilopi there are several custom titles because we have generally been around for a long time.
    Oops, I see R.A.F is actually a Senior Member, I suppose that's a custom title.

    I haven't really been paying attention to this, but isn't Senior Member between 1000 and 3142 posts? There's also a Post-Doc (which may well be a custom title for Gillian, rather than an actual group.)

    IIRC (fat chance) "Post-doc" used to be a standard group (I don't remember how many posts), but disappeared (I think) a couple of reorganizations ago. It is now a custom title.

    Yep, and as far as I know, I'm the only one. Surprised no one has noticed it until now. (or maybe they did, but found no need to mention it).

    Nope, it shifts between worzel, Established Member at 3134 posts and JAICOA, Order of Kilopi at 3142 posts.

    Gillian's Bad Post-Doc is a custom title now, it used to be one of the levels back when it was the Bad Astronomy forum.

    When the Order of Kilopi was being established, I complained about how much I'd been looking forward to reaching Bad Post-Doc on the Bad Astronomy Bulletin Board and how it wasn't, clearly, going to happen. Because the titles there were based on educational level. So I was given one, presumably to stop me from whining.

    This is very strange, but I do not remember (and it hasn't been that long ago) exactly "how" I talked ToSeek into giving me the senior member label...

    I do remember I wanted Senior Curmudgeon as a title, but about that time, all title changes were stopped. (as far as I remember)

    ...and now that the "secret" is out, everyone is going to want a custom title...

    That's pretty much it.

    I remember that, but I didn't know if ToSeek had implemented it as a custom title or a separate group. I did know it'd be a while before anybody else would reach a high enough post count to find out.

    I'm a pin collector. I'll take one of each but especially the St. Louis Astronomy club one.

    Much thanks.

    Well, I'm Established and have more of 1000 pics (2151 in Vesta and today it's to be working fine! I hope what this continue I really want to retake the work here) plus the archived Ice Investigators and 1213 in Moon Mappers.

    So, if it's possible I want:

    XL JWST T-Shirt

    And from Pick 3:
    New Horizons sticker
    Galileo Stamp sticker
    Nasa 50 years pin

    EDIT/UPDATE: Made two sessions today, in the first one marked around 10-12 pics without problem with the gallery counter, now I returned and in the second one only the half of the pics gets added to the gallery. Luckly at least the auto logoff problem it's seems to have dissapeared.
