    Just curious, but how does one attain a senior membership for only being a member for a short time?

    Member status is controlled by post count. After you hit a certain number of posts, you can change the title to whatever you want. I'm not sure of the number since it's been a long time for me. I'm sure someone can lead you in the right direction though.

    Like I said, I was just curious, it had not made any sense to me.
    I appreciate it.

    It's actually 100. 10 is when you stop being a Junior Member.

    That's a good point. I guess you are a member for a while. No one likes being called junior.

    Yeah, but after 10 posts (unless it's changed), you can manually change what it says... so technically, you can type in "Senior Member." That's what I figured the original question was -- about how fast some new people have Senior Member under their name.

    Notice that mine's blank because I'm not even worthy of Junior-status. ;f

    Just in case the original question was geared toward evaluating credibility, maybe for a potential transaction, I'd say ignore the status. If anything, go by the registered date. You can see their post count in the profile, plus you can view all of their past posts.

    Sure a scammer would make himself appear trustworthy, but if you see someone that registered 4 hours ago, has 10 posts in a test-thread, changes his member status to "Senior Member"... and has 20 NIB Glocks for sale at $100 each... you might want to think twice before sending money. ;f

    When in doubt, ask for references, see if anyone that's been here for a while can vouch for them, or even see if they're mentioned (good or bad) in the "Recommended Sellers" thread in the want-ads.
