    This site is still a work in progress, so some of this will be updated or changed over the next few months.


    Member Titles
    Member Titles are usually shown under a member’s username on any forum posts.

    The Member Titles & Trophy Points are a way of keeping track of who is active on the site. Members who post valuable content or support for others will notice that their Trophy Points start to go up quicker. As this website continues to grow, we will keep adding benefits for members that reach higher Member Titles. Here’s a list of the Member Titles, and down below I’ll explain the Trophy Points system

    Member Titles:

    New Member – The newcomers to the forums. This is the rank you are assigned to when you initially register an account.

    - Benefits:
    • You can now start replying to threads or start your own conversations on the forums.

    Member – The rank after New Member.

    - 5 Trophy Points are needed to reach this rank.

    - Benefits:
    • Members can create their own Blog.
    • Create a Signature


    Active Member – The rank after Member.

    - 10 Trophy Points are needed to reach this rank. To keep this rank you need to have at least 1 post on the forums within the last 30 days.

    - Benefits:


    Bariatric Guru – The rank after Active Member.

    - 30 Trophy Points are needed for this rank. To keep this rank you need to have at least 5 posts on the forums within the last 30 days.

    - Benefits:

    We’ll continue to add Benefits to each Member Title as our site continues to grow.


    Trophy Points are given based on your activity on the site. Here's a list of possible ways to earn Trophy Points:
    • Adding your Surgery Info at Registration
    • Starting a Discussion (Thread)
    • Commenting (Replying) on someone's Discussion

    I keep getting error messages on this site. I wonder why there isn't more traffic but then I understand because I can't do anything without trophy points. Just trying to get used to the site and am looking around. I am unable to read any of the forums you post because I get an error message. I'll keep trying because I need the support but this is very hard.

    Hmmm.. You shouldn't be getting error messages still tho. There are still a few kinks in the site, so you may just be running into a minor issue somewhere... Let me know if you keep getting those error messages.

    I was away from this site for about a year. This used to be a very active site and it helped me through my bariatric surgery and my weight loss. I signed on and see the site was redone beautifully but there is not much new activity now. This makes me feel very sad. This site and it's members were my best friends getting through my surgery. I would be happy to help newbies, but we would need to get some of the other people who have successfully gone through barbaric surgery, too. Then maybe the owners of this site could advertise to get the new barbaric people to come to this site. Are you reading my post Owners of this site?

    Yes. Once we started losing many of our Active Members we decided to rebuild the site to make it a little more user friendly and better looking. We're still constantly getting new members on here, but we don't have very many members that stick around too long. I check in everyday, but I'm not a Bariatric patient, so I'm not very comfortable giving much advice about pre & post-op questions.

    When new member's questions go unanswered for a couple days, they usually don't come back to the site. And right now we have a lot more people asking questions on here than we have people answering questions.

    I will try to check in every day now. This has been an awesome site for me and it helped me so much through my surgery. Looking back at the dates I wasn't gone for a year but it seemed like it. Life is so busy.

    Cheyenne!

    We loved having you around on the site, and I think a lot of our members have missed your advice/support too!
