    Me too. I was a certified alphaholic and now just a member.
    No big deal.
    I thought it had to do with time and number of posts?

    They may have changed something due to the recent spammer in here.

    That should not have affected Ted and I.
    I noticed others changed as well. No rime or reason that I can see.
    Not to pint you out, but I have double the posts and 6 more years. Ted has some more and 6 more years.

    Not really a big deal, I am still me. LOL Dog likes me.

    There is an admin maintenance job "Update User Titles and Ranks" which I just ran and both Dave and Ted show as Alphaholics again.

    Thanks Lenny.
    @ Robin , it came up as ??? on my kit.
    Btw. I have taken up using a sewing machine! Into bias binding feet and cord feet now, with the occasional cuss as the thread breaks.

    Thread breaking is either too much pressure on it or the machine timing is slightly off. Probably too much pressure for the tinsel strength of the thread which means you need a bit heavier thread or thinner material. Remember, I sewed silk and many other materials up to the heavy canvass and naugahyde for a long time in the Navy(Parachutes). Then did what you are doing commercially in a carpet plant.
