What do you consider a long-time member?

Adriana Ravenlust Adriana Ravenlust
I've been on EF just about 4 years. Needless to say, I've seen a lot of changes. Like anyone who's been around, it's sometimes hard to deal with those; although, there's been some perks, too, that's for sure!

when I see people mention "older" members, I'm always curious who they mean? someone who's been here 6 months? a year? 18 months? 3 years? 2 days? d=

Probably should have made this one a poll. Oh well..

I am not really sure what I consider an older member, I am not sure I have actually used this as a term. I think I usually say the usual or active members. I would say you are an older member. I think of myself as fairly new still, since I haven't not even been around a year yet.

Ciao. Ciao.
I guess I don't look too deeply at how long somebody has been on here (I've been here for over 4 years), but probably anyone who has been here for a year+ and has been fairly active I would consider to be an established member of the community.

I really don't know because I feel like it's objective. I tend to think about it as being activity based. Like I haven't been on here a year yet, but I feel like I have because I've been so active. I feel like community involvement means more than age.

I tend to agree with Ryuson, not sure it matters.

I've also been reviewing here for about four years. I would consider two years plus a long-time member. But I love my venerable status as a member who's been around for almost four whole years!

I don't think I've ever used that term, but I'd consider yourself an older established member. I've been on EF everyday, all day for 7 months, but still consider myself fairly new. Yes I'm very active and you will see me on here all the time, but I haven't been here for a year(s) like a lot of members have.

I think Ryuson said it best....community involvement means more than age. Some people have been around for years, but there are others who have been here for 6 months and are extremely active contributors. I don't think it's as cut and dry as "x" amount of time.

That said, I'd think of anyone with a year or longer as being a long-standing member. But again, I'd still default back to the content they've provided over how long they've been here.

Whew!!! I thought you were talking age, I would have qualified on that one!

I would say time wise--over two years.

Contribution wise-- very active members with over 100 reviews and that participate in all of the facets of Eden.

Basically to me it depends on the person's helpfulness, review quality and their activity. I am not a big one for comparisons about longest, most, etc. Just quality.

I've been on here for a couple of years now I believe. I don't know if I'm considered an "old" member or not....Hmmmmm

I prefer to use the word 'regular' rather than older. Although Beck, Ryuson and Unfulfilled have been only around for a year or less, it felt like you ladies have been around forever, and are always active on the site. I don't remember the exact date when I started, but I assume I've been here for over two years now.

Let's see. I started ordering from Eden about 2008... but I didn't get really involved until I guess about 2009 or 2010. I've left and come back a few times since.

Would I consider myself a long-time member? Yeah, I think I would, if I do say so myself. I've seen this place change and grow for a couple of years now, and I know the ins-and-outs (pardon the pun) of EF for the most part. But I don't have a ton of reviews or a ton of forum posts.

When I think of "older members" I think of anyone that's been here on the site for 2 years or more. I think I've been here at least a year or so? I log in when I can and I do my best but I'm not here 24/7. Lately I've been logging in daily but there were times when I took breaks. I don't focus my whole life and time on this site but I do spend a LOT of time on here! I'm not sure if I'm a "regular" or not.

This is what I was going to say mostly. Years don't matter to me. They mean nothing anyways. I am more interested in the person, their activity and the like.

GONE! GONE!
I think at least two years with lots of activity, or about four years if they weren't as active.
