There're serveral ranks for the forum members from Newbie, Junior Member, Senior Member, Key Member to VIP Member.
I am a key Member now. And I wonder how many posts I should put up, and then turn me into a VIP Member. And is the rank of VIP Member highest here except for moderators?
If you happen to know, please tell me. Thanks!
Just posting to see my rank.
Soup's already a VIP in my book.
