Hi,

What does 'structural' and 'full' member mean in this forum? I found that I fall into "structural member" in this forum, and I have no idea what it means.

Hi Angliholic,

I set that title a couple of years ago as a bit of a joke, and at a time when I was the only 'member' falling into that post count bracket. Amazingly it seems to have endured.

In a way, I like to think that it reflects the way that some of us 'support' others here, by way of contributive postings (or otherwise).

If you find it at all offensive, then please let me know and I will change it.

Tally-Ho, fellow weight-bearer! :-)
