Under people's user names, I see different titles, such as learning the ropes, prolific etc depending on the number of contributions on the boards. Where can I find more details about these 'titles' - such as how many posts one needs before moving up to the next category. Thanks

I will anchor this to the top of the forum. The information used to be visible in the FAQs in the older version of this software but is no longer there.

Thank you for your response. I was also wondering where the list had disappeared to.

And it would appear that sue943 has opted to use her powers as an Administrator to override the title she has otherwise earned. Do you blame her?

All of the admins have that, including romeomikegolf with under 5000 posts and crisw with under 6000.

Old Museum Relic was for Gatsby722, he was the only person anywhere near, now he has over 100,000 post I really ought to think of something else for him. smile

And now StarfishTwo has that title. She doesn't seem to mind...too much.

At least being an O.M. Relic is a moniker to be endured while in a temporary proving ground, after which you become Someone Very Special, a rightly deserved new title. I will never achieve either of them.

Neither will I. Prolific would be already a long-term goal.

The only reason I have as many posts as I do is that I played the chain games for a couple of months. I no longer have time to do that, but it is loads of fun. Maybe someday I'll be able to go back to those boards. Really nice people and a lot of clever wordplay and creativeness.

While we're on the subject could we add the link to the most forum posts list we called up originally to see who had crossed the 5000 mark? No coincidence I've got there since and interesting to see the current figures from time to time. I know there's a way we can do it ourselves but can't work it out and doubt many people could.

Actually it was not me who did the override.

If you know there is a way of working it out yourself then I wish that you would tell me, the only way that I know to find the information is to use the Administration Panel.

You are 58th highest poster David.

Gatsyby722 is uncatchable, I think, and he is followed by StarfishTwo, then gtho4 then myself. Some members who haven't been online for years are still very high in the list.

To produce a list, the only way that I know of, would take quite some time as I would need to copy it page by page into Word then edit it to remove information such as email addresses.

The only way I know how to do find that list is to go to the "user list" up at top. To find what place I am in, I flip through pages until I find myself; each page has 25 people, so if, for instance, you are on page 3, as David is, he's 8th on that page. So 2 full pages makes 50, plus the 8 is 58.

That's the only way I know how to do it without being an administrator. smile

And on the "user list" you can organize it however you want... Time of account creation, number of posts, name, occupation, etc.

Well, well, well. I hadn't used that link before. The Admin panel list is much the same except there are email and IP addresses.
