I don't think those indicators are to be taken that seriously mate. And it isn't the rank that makes your post meningful, rather, it is the content within it.
Look at for example, FishMonger or oesxyl in the Perl forum. they have posted excellent info and code from their first post. It is clear that they both knew what they were doing before they found CF. Other examples I know of (and I am sure there are more) would include CyanLight. No idea what her(?) experience is but her posts give good answers from the beginning.
So I wouldn't worry too much arty.
