    Cool! Thanks!

    What do I get as a Society Member? Access to more stats? Editing rights? Swag?

    I honestly don't know.

    https://www.beeradvocate.com/society/ and look for more perks later in the year. Society members have also been given the change to test drive new features in the past.

    @Todd
    Thank you, that's a great perk...I really appreciate it!
    15 years on BA for me in a couple of weeks.
    I met you and Jason in 2006 briefly at GABF.
    Really enjoy this site and get a lot out of it.

    Question: Will there be an option soon to purchase and "gift" Society memberships to other members?

    This would depend on where things land once we finally upgrade the forums (no ETA yet), but it's not an option right now.

    Sounds good, I'll be on the look out - good opportunity to continue to monetize and for some of us who are able, to be generous.

    Well this is definitely pretty awesome. I'm glad I stuck with writing reviews as I hated doing it at first.

    Thank you, Todd.

    We disabled banner ads for all logged in users last September, but Society members won't see them if this ever changes.

    What happened? I was a society poo-bah for a couple hours last night, but sigh... No more. Maybe I'll try logging out and back in.

    The criteria matching (not built by me) associated with the user upgrade gets glitchy when there's multiple criteria. I've simplified it. You (and all other Poo-Bahs) should be OK with the next update.

    Thanks Todd for the recognition. I agree, we all need to take the extra 1-2 minutes (or less) to rate/review beers on here but even more importantly, to add new beers and new places if they aren’t present yet. I just brought home some beers I bought in a bottle shop in Oakland back to MD, and had to enter a few of them as new beers before I could review. Beer Advocates need to step up. Shouldn’t be an out of state person entering retail distributed beers as new.

    I better get busy! Review beer on a regular basis and start rating more places (I've done only one place review so far). I don't seem to get any likes on my reviews and I don't know how to change that so I'll have to work toward other ends for points. I'm only 161 points above threshold and don't want to lose my status.

    Change your mindset. Don't review beers or do antying on here just to get likes. Review beers to help others and to help yourself (i.e. have a nice repository for all your beer statistics). The likes are just a bonus, not the priority.

    Let's look to the future, BAs! Consider multiple incentives and classifications beyond Poobah status.

    I'm pretty sure the "like" button for reviews was disabled several months ago.
