Oh, polishing... that cuts into my computer time... I think I will put that on Don's honey-do list!

Thanks Janet! Too cool!

It means....

I type 90 WPM.

I like being around positive, energetic, helpful, insane people and can't find enough of them in my back yard.

I see the funny side and like to share the joke, even if it's on me!

I have insomnia, and the ironing is all done...

Marvin,

I certainly agree. I see you are from Canada, eh?

How many posts do you need to make rivet master under the metric system?

When I first joined, I assumed "rivets" corresponded to Airstream restoration/repair/rebuilding experience and expertise (i.e.- number of rivets removed, replaced, etc.).

Rivet masters were obviously those types willing to share their unique and invaluable knowledge attained through hours of sweaty, dirty, rusty, body-contorting fun with those of us who were just getting started. (Inland Andy comes to mind)

Then I noticed some with 3 or 4 rivets who pretty much respond to any thread with little to say.

So I guess it remains in the eye of the beholder.

Too late to back out now...

I think for me the title of Rivet Master basically means I am in too deep now to back out. My 1973 31' Airstream is still not done yet but it will be some day. In some respects interacting with people in these forums has been more fun than the restoration work itself. Also the interaction has helped me keep going on my project. Checking in with the forums from time to time reminds me that I am not the only person out there with an ongoing Airstream project. I have enjoyed the learning experience and I have also enjoyed sharing insights that I have picked up along the way.

I think any of us with more than 3,000 posts should get a complimentary membership in the "Get a Life Club."

Congrats from a single rivet on your promotion, I hope this means you have only right answers. I brought home my Sovereign from Hornbrook this past weekend. I was right next to you, gorgeous up there. Hope to do improvements to go back up.

Arrow Rivet master. What does it mean to you.

I am a "Newbe" here, and for a while I tried to ressist replying to this post for the fear of someone missunderstanding me. I am not a rivet master and even if I were, my view would have a different approach. Now, since I no longer can ressist the temptation of replying to this thread, here what I think it should mean. It should not be about number of posts or the replies we make. It should be about the satisfaction of having gained knowledge thru experience, willingness and the ability to help others. "KNOWLEDGE WHICH IS NOT SHARED, SERVES ONLY SELF INDUCED GRATIFICATION". So let's hear loud cheers for all of you who shared their knowledge and helped others. Sincere thanks to all of you, and hope that the good feeling about yourself is your treasured reward. Thank you, "Boatdoc"

Actually pretty exciting to me! I have never had a "master" title for anything before!

Well folks, let's hear it! What does it mean to you???

Thanks!

Mrs. NorCal Bambi (traveling in S Tardis)
Congratulations on you 500th. Your comment about never had the "master" title before reminds me of an old joke.

There was this guy who was hired on a fishing boat to bait the hooks. Since he was an entry level employee he was giver the title of apprentice baiter.
Time went on and he became better and better at his job. He was promoted to Junior Baiter then Senior Baiter and....................
You know what, I can't tell that joke here.
Sorry, PM me if you need to hear the punch line.

BTW, I wanted you to have this copy of your 500th post.

Congrats on the 500th!

Marv, not that I needed another post just to congratulate CaddieGrn -- but I frequently see the need to add an 'I agree' or 'I disagree' because threads often head in directions that might mislead an inexperienced reader -- or are outright wrong.

But Claudia, I appreciate your enthusiasm for the road -- keep posting! Woo-hoo!!
