    Hi,

    Underneath the names of users there is a title like "well known member" etc. Apparently these are derived from the amount of posts you made. I noticed that many people had the title "active member", even while they had not been active on this forum for 5 years. This is confusing I think for non-regulars. Maybe we should change these titles?

    After reading this thread,I've just noticed that previously applied 'honour titles' (for want of a better phrase) beneath member's avatars, have gone.
    For example, I was kindly awarded the title 'Benevolens Magister', which is no longer displayed beneath my avatar.

    Doh!
    It wasn't showing in the 'Reply' box, so I thought it was missing.

    Might be a good idea to leave them well enough alone...otherwise I might end up with something like "mean bastard" (or worse)...

    Can we make it where the "signature pictures" at the bottom of the page are full sized and you do not need to "expand" them?

    I also don't like the "Well Known Member" thing.

    Can the titles be changed?

    I wouldn't mind maybe going back to the old "rank" system that we used to have 10+ years ago.

    0-10 posts = Airman
    11-25 posts = Airman 1st Class
    26-100 posts = Senior Airman
    101-250 posts = Staff Sergeant
    251-500 posts = Tech Sergeant
    501-750 posts = Master Sergeant
    751-1000 posts = Senior Master Sergeant
    1001-1250 posts = Chief Master Sergeant
    1251-1500 posts = 1st Sergeant
    1501-1750 posts = 2nd Lieutenant
    1751-2000 posts = 1st Lieutenant
    2001-2500 posts = Captain
    2501-3000 posts = Major
    3001-3500 posts = Lieutenant Colonal
    3501-4000 posts = Colonal
    4001-5000 posts = Brigadier General
    5001-6000 posts = Major General
    6001-7000 posts = Lieutenant General
    7001+ posts = General

    or

    0-10 posts = Airman
    11-25 = Senior Airman
    26-100 = Lance Corporal
    101-250 = Sergeant
    251-500 = Flight Sergeant
    501-750 = Warrant Officer
    751-1000 = Pilot Officer
    1001-1250 = Flying Officer
    1251-1500 = Flight Lieutenant
    1501-1750 = Squadron Leader
    1751-2000 = Wing Commander
    2001-2500 = Group Captain
    2501-3000 = Air Commodore
    3001-3500 = Air Vice Marshal
    3501-4000 = Air Marshal
    4001-5000 = Air Chief Marshal
    5001+ posts = Marshal of the Air Force

    or

    Just go back to...

    New Member
    Veteran
    etc.

    Of course if the staff decide to bestow an "honor title" on a member, that become their title to set them aside from the regular forum membership.

    Think of Wayne with his posts he's got to be:
    The Most Honourable 1st Marquess of Oz, Viceroy of India, Knight of the Garter, Order of the Star of India, Order of the Indian Empire, Her Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council, Esq..

    Agreed Chris.

    Would also be nice to see the date of your last post in a thread when you hover of the bit that tells you how many posts you have in a thread.

    That sounds ok to me but i think the number of posts for each one should be higher, more of an incentive to take part ?
