The order of bee keepers
« on: November 05, 2009, 09:13:10 PM »
I see that different bee keepers have different "bee levels" (new, field, house, galactic, super etc) next to their name.  What gives a member a certain level (time on the site, years of experience, numbers of Beemaster.com comments etc).  Just wondering, thanks.

it's usually just related to how many posts a member has.

 I thought you were talking about some semi-secret organization of beekeepers.

That's what I thought, too! Maybe we should start something ... maybe use the Mason bee as a symbol?   :-D

Robo: couldn't open your picture (due to our system's filters), but I'm anxious to check it out when I get home!

As long as we don't have to go on a secret giant wasp assassination foray in order to become full members . . . and is there a handshake?   :shock:

Gee, I thought it had to do with appearance or looks.

No secret handshake, but we do have to wiggle our backsides while pointing out the direction of the nearest bar....  Our version of the waggle dance!   :bee: :bee: :bee: :bee:

We could get our own lodges just like the Elks or kiwanis.  Except, bees.

How about a Secret Handshake, a Secret Decoder Ring, and a square flat-topped white building with one door, to meet in on sunny days.

And after awhile our own movie, 'The Langstroth Code'

If history serves, Brother, there will be at least a dozen clandestine orders before the first installation of officers is completed! They'll probably be French......  LOL!!!
