    How do I change what is says under my User Name? For example, at present it says 'First Year Pro' but I'd like to change it. I assumed it was the 'signature' option but I did that and nothing changed?

    Reach your second year and you'll get a change you'll never be able to guess...

    In the past I have seen the description under my Avatar change but have never had the choice of what it says. Some people clearly get to choose what theirs say - is that too something that comes after more posting?

    No. It's usually the result of bribery and/or blackmail.

    There's a heirarchy of levels automatically awarded according to posts/points. From Trialist through to Galactico if memory serves correctly. People who've won competitions or otherwise deserved it have had custom ones either awarded or inflicted on them.:D

    Simply dishing them out on request devalues the awards given for merit.

    The site had some sort of update earlier this year and my description went back to the beginning - was that universal?

    There were some migration issues. What was your previous title? I think stuff with non alphanumeric characters or over a certain length caused a problem.

    Pretty sure I got mine as a competition winner. Wish I could change it in hindsight now, particularly after the whole franco Vazquez thread!

    I don't really remember - I am not really bothered but just was interested to know how people got titles like "Penguin Assassin":). I think I had moved up to something like international squad member or such like. I am not sure what a reservist actually is - am I not even a reserve? :)

    (ps I am aware you have better things to do than answer this sort of question so do not worry if you do not have time to reply)

    I think I just asked for mine, but can't remember because it was probably about 10 years ago! (Forum life was different back then) But it does ring true, I am a cad and bounder of epic proportions.

    I think yours needs to be changed to "Excretion expert" or something.

    I'm slightly concerned about the "Penguin Assassin" title ...........

    Think yours is a hangover from the old days bofore we had to up the thresholds because Moog posts too much.
    Changes only trigger on an upward trend of if a Mod goes in and manually updates. Mwuhahaahhaah.

    Not sure that has quite the same ring to it.

    It worries me - are you a penguin who assassinates people or are you someone who assassinates penguins?

    It would be interesting - sort of - to see a league table of the top 20 most frequent posters and a table of those who are on most Forum users' 'ignore' setting

    I'm surprised you could see that

    Me and one other I'd guess.

    I've never seen the point of ignoring people on a forum, if you're that sensitive then it's the wrong place for you, (obviously not you Lloyd).

    Here you can see a list of the top 20 overal posters.. http://wfcforums.com/index.php?members/ but just those.. not sure how accurate numbers are. On the old board you could keep looking further down the list and, i think, you could see who was posting the most on any given day.

    The tab next to Most Messages is Most Likes.. http://wfcforums.com/index.php?members/&type=likes with GoingDown leading the way. I hadn't realised you could like your own posts!

    Find out how popular you are by creating a likes/posts percentage.

    Me 1.53%*
    Going down @ 5.47% is nearly 4x more likeable than me.


    *Just to qualify, the posts totals include them on forum v1 & v2 and the likes did not migrate over to the current version iirc. so in actual fact this stat is complete and utter rubbish.

    Nothing to see here, move along.

    I was quite pleased to see I was second on the list of "points" scorers, until I realised that everyone else had exactly the same number of points (the seemingly unlikely 113).

    I sold my soul to the devil (Meister) in exchange for favourable stats......;)
