Tell ya the truth it used to be 100 posts, but we had a member join and rack up more then 60 posts in one day so we decided on a board like this that it's possible for someone to bypass the first stage within a couple of days, so we upped the numbers from their original default setting. Considering how Tamagotchi has stood the test of time, we figured that some folks would be here for possibly years and we wanted a slower progress of the title change to match the expected lifespan of the board (or should I say at the time we "hoped" things would be successful hehe).
Instead of dilja's suggestion, I have gone with acidiica's - both solutions get the same point across, while keeping in tact my initial reasoning for the numbers set when this whole thing was started.
All folks who have posted 10 posts or less now have Lurker associated as a title, those who have 11-149 are in the newbie status.. and so on. There are no stars for Lurker status.
And in case you are interested the numbers - they right now read:
Jr Member: 11
Full Member: 5
Sr Member: 3
Hero Member: 0
I hope this solution is satisfactory
