Things have changed...
The forum is now setup that:
Newbies are people with 1 to 4 posts, they also recive one star under there name.
Junior Members have 5 - 24 posts, and get two stars
Members have 25 - 49 posts, and get three stars
Senior Members have 50 - 99 posts, and get four stars
Expert Members have 100 or more posts, and get a full 5 stars.
This may change again in the future to make it more bike related, maybe Novice, Amature and Pro? I dont know, if you have any good ideas for member status, post a note, or email me.
