I just reached 400 posts - only 100 until I'm sitting for the Johannsons! I was wondering if there would be a way for the moderators to consider adding a few more levels between the existing ones. As it is now, the next level is 1000, which seems like a big jump. I'm very "goal oriented" and would love having more posting goals to work towards I also think it would be fun to see more choices of who everyone is "sitting" for. Anyone else have thoughts on this? Who would we talk to about doing this?

Well, at least the good thing about the levels being so far apart is that it actually feels like an accomplishment when you reach a new one. It took me like eight months or so to finally get to 250 posts.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one who would like more goals I know I'll never make it to 1000. Too bad that we can't get it changed. I guess I'll have to find a way to "reward" myself. Maybe I will change my avatar for each 100 posts and put on a sig that says who I am "sitting" for. That way, I can keep track of it unofficially. Maybe others want to do the same so we can have some fun seeing who everyone is "sitting" for. Wonder what level Pikes would be. I think they'd be higher than Wilders. The Wilders don't seem like they should be so high. Who should come next at 600? 700?

Considering the first charge you get to sit for is Charlotte, you have to go more difficult than that. I mean Rosie? Seriously? I will never understand that. I think we could throw in the Newtons, the Perkins (they're always easy, I think), the Marshalls, The Ramseys... not sure who else for easy charges. More difficult ones would be the Pikes (of course), the Barretts (esp when they are the Barrett-Dewitts!) and the Rodowskys.
I was thinking of the same ones. The Thomas Brewer crew might be towards the difficult end too. Braddocks for easier? Or Kormans? Definitely not the Addisons - maybe they are 2000 Where would Jenny P be? I want to sit for her - she sounds so cute! I think Charlotte is as easy as it gets, though. Maybe Rosie's difficulty is attributed to dealing with Uncle Dandy? But I agree - not difficult in herself.
Officially I think we should move up every 250 posts, unofficially every 100 would be nice. I totally agree about this Rosie Wilder thing. By the time I get to 1000 posts, I want to be rewarded with something better than that!
I think the Barretts, the Pikes, the Thomas-Brewers, and the Rodowskys should definitely be on the high end. Jenny I don't think would be too bad, maybe mid-level. The Perkins girls should come after Charlotte, they'd be so much fun! Then I think Jamie and Lucy Newton, and then some of the more difficult charges.
aln1982, I like the idea of putting it in your signature. I would do that, but I don't think I'll change my avatar -- I'm so used to this one and to recognizing everybody else by theirs!
