Speed Lines, Do they vanish if you break your posting/reporting streak of consecutive days?

Scoutmaster; the term continue means that I have asked these questions in the past, I have not.

I joined nearly two years ago, this is correct, but I only really started using the app about eight months ago, and only started using the full site with it's news blog and forums about a months ago.

So to say "...yet you continue like you joined yesterday." is scold a member without knowing the facts.

Retired-Coastie,

You have been a member for almost two years yet you continue to ask questions like you joined yesterday. I would suggest you take some time and look around the site for your answers. Some are here. Others are here. And there are many more places you can find the answers to your questions. If ya can't find them after searching the site, then post them here.

RC: "Of but how long does it take? I have my dead subjects locked, but thats me. "

RC, in most cases the threads die a natural death as they age off the front page. This thread was doing so, until you posted tonight and "re-aged" it bringing it back to the top of the board.

The MODs are busy so asking them to close every thread that has been answered is not needed. They usually jump in if an answered thread keeps getting unnecessarily bumped or gets filled with JFF or bickering.

Moderators are the only ones who can close topics. There really is no reason to do so however as if people simply stop posting to a topic, it will close based on time alone.

Thanks for answering my simple question so quickly.

@Gas Buddy, so do you or I close a topic?

Once members achieve a scheduled number of points they are awarded a graphic to represent a certain points level:

This will give you a visual of what Gas_Buddy wrote.

To more fully answer the question, the "speed lines" are added to the graphic after 90 consecutive days of points earning participation. If there's a break (i.e., one or more days of no "points earning" action), the "speed lines" will disappear the next time you perform a "points earning action" and will not reappear until you again have 90 consecutive days of "points earning" action. They are not a permanent fixture, if that's what you're asking, to show that you once earned points for 90 or more consecutive days.

If that answers your question, as bytebug suggested, this topic should be closed.
