View Full Version : Losing the "new member" title

05 May 2004, 12:10 PM
Hey, I couldn't find anything on this topic, I was just wondering how or when we lose the title of being a "new member" and how can we write our own little caption there instead?

my profile> edit profile> custom user text

This is the title that appears beneath your name on your posts.

hope that helps :beer:

you also have to be a full member for over 1 month and have 20 posts.

so just a little longer for you ^_^

Hmm...I can't seem to find this 'custom text'. I have been a member for over 1 month and have over 20 posts.... maybe I have to wait longer and post some more :hmm:

Thanks anyway peeps!

very dumb question : Where do you upload avatar?

05 May 2004, 07:45 AM
Oh no...I'm back to being a 'new member' again. Because the database was exploited, I lost my threads and lost my number of posts and went crashing back down to being a new member again. Just for those interested, you need to have over 30 posts to lose the title.

Hmm thats odd.
I just read that only 20 post were required...?
Which is the true number?

Lord Orion,
From VERY recent experience, I am 100% sure its 30 posts :thumbsup:

so the first 30 posts i make are going to be approved by a mod before they actually get posted?

first five posts will be suject to moderation, which you have made, so dont worry about it anymore ^_^. you need 30 posts + 1 month for custom user text. 20 Posts + 1 month for an avatar.

woot! :buttrock:

Not sure about this....over one month, 31 posts, and I still can't. I know I should be able to, because I am a 'veteran', but there is no box...maybe I need to delete my cookies and login again. Going to have to try that.

Hi have the veteran status, the 30 post and 1 month, but Im still not able to update the text.

I don't think at this stage you can edit your text from being a "veteren" to typing whatever you want. I have noticed that there is the title "frequenter" and I'm guessing that only happens if you have many posts. Actually i too want to know when exactly we can edit our titles.

I was wondering the same thing...

(hahah - at first I thought "veteran" meant at graphics or animaiton or whatever... I thought I might have clicked that by accident when signing up; cuz I know I'm just a noob!)

05 May 2004, 09:33 PM
That last post just made me 31... I still don't see where to change "custom text", though I changed the part that says make a short bio... is that it??


nope, thats not it either!

umm... anybody? I guess this isn't earth-shatteringly important, but...

You need 50 posts.
