Hi. I was just wondering what are the criteria for members' titles as shown at the side of each post, eg. newbie, member, journeyman, etc. Of course we all know who 'incurable' belongs to .

For example, I used to see 'journeyman' on my posts, but now see 'member.' But I don't think it's based on average number of posts, which may decline over time for a member who isn't very active any longer, because I've seen others showing as 'journeyman' who have less total posts and an earlier registration date than I. Could it be based on the number of posts during a specific time period, such as over the last year? Just curious .

Actually the titles only count the total number of posts since registration, regardless of time period. I just looked up the list, which can be modified as to number of posts and the given title names. Here is the current list:

Post
Count: Name:
0 newbie
25 junior
50 journeyman
100 member
200 enthusiast
400 addict
700 old hand
1200 veteran
1600 Pooh-Bah
2500 Carpal Tunnel (I like that one!)
3600 Incurable

If you or anyone else has suggestions for different (and humorous) title names and/or different post count levels, post them here and we could make some changes to add to the fun of participating on the forum.

Ha ha, there's some cute ones there, some of which I've not seen in any posts. Now I see why I went from journeyman to member. Without having seen the list, I had thought that the former would be greater than the latter . Another one, which would be less than journeyman, might be apprentice.

I agree, "member" is rather bland. How about if we rework it like this?

0 newbie
25 junior
50 apprentice
100 journeyman
200 enthusiast
400 addict
...

That looks good to me, Guy. But don't do it just on my say so. I'd like to see some others chime in here... I'm sure someone will come up with some more humorous titles .

Same here...its more fun when everyone pitches in. The titles are there for fun so I'm sure some people here can come up with more witty names for us geeks!

Its right under your name... journeyman.

I tried modifying the tiles but I'm getting an error message and it doesn't save the changes, so I guess they will stay the way they are for a while yet...
