    Currently to join the prestigious ranks on forum.chorus.fm you need to have a combination of one year of posting and 15,000 posts (or you can upgrade your account). However, I feel slightly bad ;-p about members with prestigious status on AbsolutePunk.net coming here and not having access to the perks of prestige on these forums. Therefore, if this applies to you, please post in this thread with what your previous prestigious username was on AP.net and I will do my best to upgrade your account. Due to the time this will take to do individually, this is a limited time dealio.

    Also, please consider signing up for one of our membership programs if you like the website or you're running an ad-blocker of some kind. Good karma, ad-blocking absolution, and quite a few perks are built-in (with more coming soon).

    I love this idea, but I think the name "prestigious" has a weird feel. Not sure what a better name is, but "prestigious" just sounds odd. I absolutely think a membership program is ideal, especially given the current landscape of online editorial and web forums, etc. Moreover, multi-tiered membership is definitely the way to go. Reward those who want to deeply invest in the future of Chorus.FM and want to contribute financially. That is an absolute must and the correct way to move forward.

    What he said! (Except it's pronounced leviosa.) My previous username was Erik the Orange, but I figured new forum, new name. Plus, let's be honest: Erik the Orange was always a pretty dumb username.

    Hahhaa. 5 years. Man. I can't believe how long that website has been around to be honest. It still sometimes just hits me on my ass. I turn 33 next week or something and I've been doing something like this since I was like 14.

    I think it was some of your reviews in particular that drew me to the site, actually!
    I can't remember exactly, but it was probably the Fall Out Boy "Infinity On High" review. I got linked there from Wikipedia, looking up info and such about various artists (as i still do now, lol)

    Oh god.

    Haha, that's amazing. I am bringing some of those (really badly written) reviews back to the archive. I am half embarrassed people read them and half so happy. Gotta remember to keep making sure they're on Wikipedia.

    Speaking of beer. Is there a buy a beer for Jason fund for your birthday because that's something I'd do. While I haven't contributed a lot to AP.net it's become my go to source for new music and music news. Also some of the discussions that have happen around the site have made me reassess how I approach certain things in my life. So thanks Jason!

    I have no idea what counts as prestigious on AP, but this made me check my profile over there. (Which is the same name as my high school AIM account, S84newt2000. Amazing)

    Apparently my 10 year anniversary is coming up in a few weeks, ha! Only 1200 posts in that timeframe averaging .333 a day.

    So far this has seemed way more inviting, partly because it's new and has less users (for now), but I really love that I don't have a user's post count staring me in the face. Im really hoping the sense of community and atmosphere that you're wanting to build here catches on because that would certainly encourage me to visit and post in the forums more frequently.

    Happy (almost) 10 years, @Jason Tate, we did it!
