"New member" description under forum login name

I see under the login names for various threads "Member" and "New member" and others. What does that mean?

"New member" doesn't seem correct for someone who got a login in 2007.

"New" has nothing to do with the elapsed time since registration. It only reflects the number of posts. The system is:

tomw wrote:New Member - Those members who have less than 30 posts.
Member - Those members who have between 30 and 100 posts.
Senior Member - Those members who have more than 100 posts.


Also, are two additional titles that reflect specific assignments, independent of the number of posts:
  • Moderator: Someone assigned to moderate forums (keeping discussions on topic, removing spam, etc.)
  • Administrator: Someone who can control all aspects of administering the site
