    Titles under your name

    Not really sure what they're called exactly, but the title under your name. (Newbie/new member/member etc)

    I was wondering how exactly that's calculated.

    I'm currently listed as a 'member' yet other members are classified as 'senior members' that have been on the forum for less time than me.

    Is it based on join date? Post count? something else?

    More so out of interest, not jealousy of higher titles


    Cheers

    ps. You can become a moderator only if you have a BBB degree.

    You may think that. I couldn't possibly comment.

    Damn it! We've been rumbled.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Re: Titles under your name

    Is there any difference between member rankings apart from their post count? Any special functions for higher-ranking members or something of that sort?

    None at all. It's just a fun way of recognising regular posters.
