    Screen Name Titles

    Is there a list somewhere of what the post #'s translate to in terms of titles? Example, I now have this...

    ashworth102680
    WHT Addict

    ...which showed up @ 100 post mark. Is there a full list so I can see how I earn my title? Just wondering

    its called a rank. sometimes there are pictures assocciated with them aswell. WHT probably does 50, 100, 250, 500 1000 posts are different ranks..


    admitting you have an addiction is the first step

    You can actually modify it under your profile.

    I have no idea what the default one is past 'WHT Addict', I assume I would have something decent if I hadn't written something silly in it.

    You have to have >550 posts to modify your user title. Otherwise they're the standard "guru" "addict" etc. UmBillyCord had my favorite custom user title but I'm not sure it's safe to post anymore
    If you have to operate your company behind the scenes or under a fake name, maybe it's time to leave the industry and start something fresh.

    Nice. I thought this was something the board chose. I guess it does by default, but you have an option to override it.

    Sweet. Perks !!

    What about, you get to 1000 posts and can post faster than 90 seconds? ...or is this already possible and I just don't know it

    Heh, Aingaran, he'll be passing you by Labor Day!

    And yes, this really should be in the Lounge. Will likely be moved soon.

    No.

    After 10,000 posts, you get the key to the WHT rec room, and also the excecutive bathrooms. I love the musical heated toilet seats. Nice touch on those cold winter mornings.
