Disagree. In the NBA, you're considered a vet after one year and I'll even be generous and say maybe you're a vet if you don't have to join the summer league any more. There is criteria for them, there should be for us.

you are running a game now so if you continue that , you are golden


Nah. I was thinking about this and all the random users who sign up because they want fight club perks but don't post and what not. More wanting to know what you guys think the criteria would be.

Alright. So the consensus with my buddies is that in the NBA after one year you are not a rookie.... BUT you're not a vet either. To transition to vet status you need at least 4 years as an active player, no longer play in summer league, and have respectable stats that have been contributing to the team (even as a bench player). Sooooo.... In my opinion to obtain vet status:

1. Be an active poster for at least one year to no longer be a rookie.
2. Be regular for at least for three years knowing who the other regular posters are.
3. Have 3,000 posts.
4. Have at least 300 likes.

I've just remembered one hugely important criteria to progress from rookie to forum vet, you have to make a GOAT thread. You will notice all of the forum OGs have contributed at least one if not multiple truly GOAT threads.

If nobody responds directly to you with any type of animosity, you're a rookie.

 

If you can earn some rustle with a mere comment about something totally not regarding the person who ends up salty, you've made it. You're a vet.

Accept a poop eating bet and you're well on your way. Welch it and things are looking even better.

 

I'm afraid you have a paid account though, and paid accounts are unable to become veteran accounts.

 

If you subscribe to FightPass you are also unable to become a vet. It's not looking good for you homie, you may want to check out CamelDog.
