    How do they do it?

    How do folks get more than 20 characters in the text below their username in the left? I've seen folks with many more than 20 characters and they have under 500 posts. How is this done?

    Just curious.

    Yeah, how do they do it?

    Course, I bet a MOD could set that up for someone.

    I think this is a bug in vB 2.2.5, fixed in vB 2.2.6. How to exploit it is byond my knowledge. You might wanna take a look at the source for vB to figure it out, if you have it.

    Or maybe search google

    I haven't seen anyone with less than 500 post have a custom tag line. Except that one that XStrike gave the person complaining because they didn't have 500 posts the other day.

    I think it said something like...

    "I REALLY REALLY can't wait until I get 500 posts so I can change my tag line"

    Or something like that....

    Regards,
    Michael

    Hmm...

    I just played around with it. It wasn't that hard to get more than 20 characters.

    It might be possible. But, I imagine that it will be difficult.
