It just came to me (in a dream!). How 'bout
"Miembro de Oro" &
"Miembro de Plata" ??

Although many visitors to the message board don't speak Spanish so this would be lost.

What a shame. I REALLY liked the "Spanophile" designation for the "Member". If only we could find something appropriate for the "Junior Member". One-word names would be best, don't you think?

nah, the Miembro de Oro etc is too long and will get lost on the non-spanophiles! I like Member and Senior Member (we all get promoted!) or Visitor and Resident.

I agree, the above are too long. How about:
Spanophile & Visitor then? I'd prefer to have the "Junior Member" be renamed something Spain-related if possible though.

I'm not liking the neologism of Spanophile anyway. Iberophile, and I am sure you don't like that. (or Hispanophile, which you would like less). running out of ideas...

I like Spanophile 'thou do know that Iberophile is more correct - As for Hispanophile....MM is right - the designation Member/Junior Member and resident/guest just don't get the feeling across. We all share a tremendous love for Spain ... someone come up with something for the junior" desingnation

I must add that I was a bit put off by the redesignations. I'm not sure why. It's your website, afterall, MM. I know I love Spain and I don't necessarily need the title of Spanophile to confirm my beliefs on that one. Anyway, just kidding! Whatever you want to do, MM. Hmmm, how about..algo como..consejeros o delegados o embajadores o for thos non Spanish speakers we could just use terms like Ambassadors and something, I don't know. Something international goodwill-like, you know? Anyone? Anyone? Ferris?

Let's just go with MEMBER and SENIOR MEMBER!! than no one is a whopper junior and we all belong. I object to Spanophile on linguistic grounds, as you know. Maybe we should just have starts. One star for newbies, 2 stars after 10 posts, three stars etc until you get to be a real estrella!

So we can't come up with anything Spain-related??? Come on! (man, I really liked "Spanophile")

How about RESIDENT MEMBER & TOURING MEMBER ??
(I know. I know. They're NOT Spain-related, darnit, AND 2-words long)

There should be three categories. Wanna be (in Spain). Has been (in Spain). Hung out (at Brillante bar). Only the hung outs are serious members!! jajaja, es una broma. Dejalo como esta, MM, y no te preocupes.
