RE: "Senior Member"
Or better yet, tack on some qualification for needing Likes or Rep to get such a lofty title.

Me, bah, what's in a title? I'm the guy that never tested for my brown or black belts - my instructor just gave them to me. Not a gift; I put in the time and effort and then some. Just one day he asked me why I wasn't testing and I told him I cared more about learning the art than displaying how much I knew (truth, not just spewing zen wisdom or some such). His reply was to tell me that I was definitely skilled enough to easily pass both tests and he expected his assistant instructors to look the part and he gave me both belts right there (it was his way of asking me to become an assistant instructor).

Short answer, I don't care what it says under my name unless the title comes with responsibility to others, in which case they need the title to recognize my responsibility to them.
