Hi guys,
How to I activate the new member bit in my avatar, or does the system do that after so many posts or something.
Cheers alex

You've put 'Alex' in as a custom title in the box where 'New Member' would appear, dunno if clearing that box will allow your status to appear and change as you move up the 'rankings' though.

How do you do that?
I can't see anywhere to add custom title. Mine just keeps changing of its own accord.

My 'account details' show a box just below 'Avatar' saying 'Custom Title' if you type something in that it will replace your 'ranking' or length of membership. Every time you are awarded a 'trophy' either for Likes, Number of posts, Time on the Forum etc the 'title' under your name will progress from 'New Member' to Legendary Member' with various levels in between.

It's just a bit of fun really that is built into the forum software and I don't think anyone takes it that seriously. :laugh:

I suspect it has been done away with in a forum "upgrade".
It's likely because it's still less than a month since you joined. You have to be a member for a certain length of time before all the features get unlocked. I can't recall offhand how long it is for that particular one and the site owner isn't around at the moment to ask.
