I lurk, therefore I am. I've been reading everything and drooling over pictures. I registered a long time ago but forgot about the site until recently. Now, I'm the one reading at work in between inbound calls and playing with pliers.

Then wait for your 1001st one - you'll earn the full set of triplets then - and advance to the 'Ancient Forge' level. Welcome. Very Happy

Human societies are like chain mail.
A single link will be worth nothing.
A chain is of use, but will break at the weakest link.
A weak weave will have the need to replace weak links.
A strong weave will survive even with weak links included.

Zili I see that now. Does that mean I have to know what I am talking about? better watch what I say now.

So is there a record anywhere as to the post/advancement of profile status? I see I'm a ringlet now and am just wondering at what stages that changes. Not that it'll make me post a whole lot more but it'd be cool to know.

Huh, not as chainmail-y sounding as I originally pictured. Sounds like I need to get to 1001 posts and retire unless the "undiscovered" titles are equally impressive as "Ancient Forge". If that's the case then I guess I'll just have to become a permanent addition to these forums. Somebody, please beat me to it... that's a lot of posts.

OK, DL didn't tell - I won't as well. [Hehe, a rhyme] Very Happy

Edit: Oops - when I did my reply, DL's whole post wasn't visible for me - just the intro line. So my comment may be ignored - except the one showing a level theoretically reachable...
BTW: NOBODY here reached that yet (that was visible once due to a database hiccup)... <grins>

Ya, DL posted the structure of advancement through posting all the way up to 3001 (Uber Voice) but he also mentioned that there were some levels as yet undiscovered by the general populace. If they sound as cool Ancient Forge then they may be worth trying for otherwise I'll just drag myself up to the 1000-3000 range over the next few years. And trust me, I know how naive that statement sounds... 1000 posts is a tremendous amount of literature but I just recently became hooked on chainmail again. Finished my first saleable item last night (6 hrs, 22" full persian necklace in 18g 1/4" Ano. Alum.) Brought it to work with me today and got half a dozen orders on the spot, kind of inspiring.

Don't worry so much about the post count. If you are active in the community, you'll get there eventually. If you have something useful to add to a conversation, then add it. If you have a question, then ask it. (Oh, and posting pics of your work is good, too) But otherwise, don't work towards JUST getting posts. That won't help anybody.

Ya, no worries about useless posts. If that was my goal it wouldn't take me a couple years to get to 1,000 but rather a weekend of mind numbing useless posts. I fully intend to provide value once I've learned enough to do so and ask questions relentlessly until I'm at that point.

Speaking of which, I've been browsing through the site quite a bit but don't think I've found a ring count estimator. Essentially a table or tool that will estimate how many rings of a given size it would take to make a weave of a defined length/area. This would mostly be valuable for people making jewelry weaves in a uniform pattern (mixing weaves or graduating the ring sizes would make this difficult). I started making one so I know how many rings I'll need when making estimates to potential buyers.

You'll find that gets unwieldy in a hurry... For one or two weaves, in one or two ring sizes, sure...
Once you have 3 dozen rings sizes, and 20+ weaves at your disposal, exponents come into play.

Also: Not really the right thread for this discussion Very Happy Don't be affraid to start threads!

Hello all,
My name is Laura and I am new to the art. I just got into this hobby about two months ago. I saw a really cool belt and figured I wanted to make my own. So...here I am. I feel lucky to find this site so early into it. It has already inspired me to buy more rings in more sizes and colors. I will have to take pictures and post my first project. It was a simple spiral chain but I am proud! I look forward to leaning from everyone here.
