okay sorry if this is a stupid question and it''s been answered a millions times before and i''m just blind that i didn''t see the answer somewhere on some FAQ but...what was i saying now?


oh yeah, i was just curious...what make some people "rough rock"s and some "cut rock"s. at first i thought it was the people in the biz that were the "cut rock"s but then i found some of them were not. they were just people who started out like me looking for a diamond and finally learned enough that they think they can help others. i also found that some people that sound like they''re in the biz are likewise "rough rock"s. there went that theory.

then i thought maybe it was the amount of posts. after all the more you can contribute, the better, right? but then i discovered that some "cut rocks" had less than 100 posts while some "rough rocks" had 200+!


now i know this has nothing else to do with anything except to satisfy my silly curiousity but i just thought i would ask...especially since i noticed that leonid was logged on.

sorry if this was a worthless question. just wondering since i couldn''t figure out a pattern here...and you know some of us geeks...like every angle on the sarin report, we just gotta know everything!


thanks for your time!

Hi 69gm-I emailed leonid about this topic about 4 months ago by then i had reached about 100 posts. When you reach about 100 posts or so is about when you are labeled a "Cut Rock". I think the time frame that Leonid updates this feature might play a role in the discrepency with numbered posts you see. For example the contributor FURTHERMORE had close to 300 posts and joined pricescope about a month ago (What a Blabbermouth...lol...just joking furthermore...
) I think when leonid finds time he updates this feature but in the meantime some of the exceptions like Furthermore and others that contibute quite a bit maintain their Rough Rock status until Leonid has a chance to catch up with updating the titles.

I don't think its a feature Leonid has to run every once in a while. Its much more likely that certain criteria have to be met, then it happens automatically. If it isn't the number of posts, maybe it is the amount of time since you registered? Or maybe it is something Leonid does on an individual basis.

Hey Furthermore, we became members on the same day!

I wrote "Please make me a cut rock!" on the back of a twenty dollar bill and mailed it to Leonid.

Worked like a charm.

I want to be an 'A Cut Above' rather than 'A Cut Rock'

What other cool ideas could we give Leo in case he decides to upgrade the system? Like he needs more work to do.


For the troublemakers, we could call them 'Warped Rocks'

I think troublemakers should be called Mara or Fire&Ice


But seriously, what's the point? Is credibility of a poster dependent on how many posts he or she made? If that's the case, I'll just reply to each and every post saying "buy from x, y, z vendor" or "cool stone".

It is just for fun and depends on number of posts


However, we can turn it into something more serious - suggestions are welcome

Now that would get you into the "clique" on DT.

For DancinGirl's signature, how about:

"I'm a CUT ROCK in all the right places..."
