In the Russian section is an interesting discussion going on about the name Evangelist which you receive when you reached about 1000 posts. There are people whosay this is not very appropriate.
What do you think?
What name would you suggest?

Yes it is.
I think something like "massive poster" or some sort of should be better

To be frank, I would feel uncomfortable if I were called an "Evangelist", due to different beliefs.

The name doesn't worry me here either, but as mentioned, there are those that take religion seriously, as most do with security here.
Maybe looking at a neutral name, to please everyone might be in order if people are complaining about it's reference ??

I have no problem with the title of "Evangelist" in context of computer proficiency and work in such a field . I am a Evangelist in context to my work on projects related to Anti-Malware and help and support in that area . In the broader sense as it relates to a relgious disposition I can see the conflicting meaning .
norwegian :

" Maybe looking at a neutral name, to please everyone might be in order if people are complaining about it's reference ?? "

If people are upset about the term I suppose a more neutral title would be appropriate . Whatever makes everyone happy .

You are probably right Sjoeii, wouldn't want to make anyone uncomfortable.

How about "Extreme Poster" or "Extreme Member". :)
