    + signs next to Member status

      I personally don't like these new +++ signs next to my Member status at all.

       

      I myself give zero credence to the points system in these forums and I don't particularly want mine highlighted via these +++ signs.

       

      For those who like it, all well and good but to me it promotes an artificial and misleading pecking order or ranking.

       

      Is advice from a +++ Member better than advice from a ++ Member? Newbies might think so. I don't.

       

      I've often seen forum regulars give sub-optimal responses (me included). No matter. We're all learning.

       

      It's probably a forlorn hope but I'll ask anyway: is there any way of switching this off in the Forum Preferences and becoming a plain old Member again?
