Just curious... how many posts do I need to make before I get promoted from being a "newbie"?

Thanks.

keep posting -- no other way. Once you post at certain levels,
and DECENT POSTS not spam, you will get a new name. It
really doesn't even matter much, jsut for fun.

I just checked the exact ranks in the system right now and they are as follows:

0 Newbie's Assistant
5 Newbie
15 Novice
35 Beginner
65 Student
100 Graduate
250 Expert
500 Teacher
750 Professor
1000 Guru
1500 Master Guru
2500 Hacker
3000 Master Hacker

Thanks, rjmthezonenet! I'm so glad to finally get out of that "Newbie" title. (I had to post like mad to get out of "Newbie's assistant". That was quite embasassing)

Cool, well there you go!

(Just remember not to spam for the sake of upgrading your title. They're not worth it...)

Interesting. I never even really thought about the rankings, but it appears I would have just passed into the hacker rank.

Actually I was. I think Bigwebmaster made me a mod when I was still a "teacher" and I just never really paid much attention to the numbers after that. I didn't realize I had that many posts in less than a year.

I wish there was an option to keep your current title no matter how many posts you make.

I feel like I will be a begginer for a while still, cause I have way too much to learn

Custom titles would be neat :)

I'm sure I saw a hack out there where you could put a custom title if you had over X amount of posts.

Moderators, Supermoderators & Admins would show their status below their custom title.

I'll have to see if I can hunt that one out and suggest it to BigWeb.

this is already been discussed, but is a great idea. At some
point we will have it so after 1000 posts, let's say, you can
change your title to something of your choosing.

I think for mods we're going to have either a 2nd line or a small
icon much like the folks over at http://www.kirupaforum.com have. I
like the icon idea personally, but we'll see how it goes.

Axe, if you can find it faster than Bigweb can get around to
doing it, I'm sure he'd be receptive to adding it in.

Don't worry about looking for the mod Axe, I have had the mod for some time, just haven't had time to install it.

I think you're right... the number of posts you make dosen't exactly relate to how experienced you are.

Maybe Ozzu should allow users to rate each other's posts. This way, it the rank would reflect the quality of posts people make! :):)

no way am I going to rate anyone elses posts. I don't really care if a person is posting quality stuff.

What I do know, is if I post a question on here, I am pretty confident I am going to get the answer I need.

Rankings are just for fun, I am by all means not an expert

not a bad suggestion...

but i agree, I don't think that's any good. And people are just
going to abuse it anyway, especially with the growth ozzu has
taken in the past 6mo it's only going to get worse.

no, the only thing that promotes you to a different name is to post
quality posts. Nothing else.

You don't really get promoted anyway. It's just a name that goes
with the # of totals posts you've made.
