New Forum Ranking Structure
You might have noticed that every forum member has a title in their profile that appears next to their posts. e.g. Mine is "Forum Founder" This title is your Rank within the forum, and this system has recently been revamped - the title gets fancier the more posts you make! :D

Are you a Lurker (0 posts), or a Newbie, or perhaps a Regular Member? Or maybe you fancy yourself as a Professional Member. Or how about an Elite Member?

Please check your profile to see what you are! Here is also detailed breakdown of the ranking structure and how many posts are required for each rank:
