and replying on several threads since Friday, even to the extent of song names with colours :)

I did manage to resist the ' Would you date such and such ' threads !

I have joined the ranks of the likes of AndyMac and the late MagicMike, I have become a Diamond :)

Ha ha Laura, the only thing i have found being a diamond member is i'm much older and my age must be showing because i tried to mark your OP as excellent but i can't find how to do it, am i missing something?

Anyway, congratulations on becoming a diamond member :)

I thought I had been here a long time but I'm a relative newcomer compared to some.

Most days I log on and read the threads even if I don't comment.

I noticed today that my profile gives the date I joined and when I last logged on but no-one else's seems to.

It's odd you have that extra information on your profile Andromeda. I checked mine and I don't have it.

It's under profile options.  Tick or untick trust and/or activity panels.

Congratulations, Laura.  Though I'm kind of surprised it has taken you that long.  Obviously not sending enough PMs.  I've been a diamond several times over, which might be slightly embarrassing.

I noticed today that my profile gives the date I joined and when I last logged on but no-one else's seems to.

The standard default setting used to be to show all your joined/last logged in etc dates but that was changed to "unticked/off" when they updated the privacy settings. So you have to manually change it if you want that information displayed on your public profile.

Select "My Profile" from the row of options at the top of the page.
Select "Profile Options" on the next list.
Look down the page to the "Privacy Options" heading.
2nd item on that is
"Show activity panel on profile - Tick to show the activity panel on your profile page. This panel shows information about how active you are on-site.

Lots of activity on site, Willy. I think someone worked out that lots of PMing gets you most points.

That explains it - I was going to say I can count on one hand the number of people that I have p.m.'d in the last 6 months, but actually it's one hand and one finger.

If you get to Diamond level twice do you get a "Double-Diamond".  If so, I will pass as the last time I had one of them was when the Queen ( God bless her) was still a Princess!

Laura you a ARE a diamond anyway. I remember you, when I first joined MSE 20 or so years ago. Due to cancer I had to stop for a while but have rejoined last year. I do contribute quite a bit, but I don’t even know how high in the stakes of diamonds I am. But then again I don’t really worry about it.
