    I don't understand. Under some users I see 'Idol', sometimes 'Trendsetter', 'Leader', 'Public Figure', 'Celebrity, 'Rookie'. Like, what do you have to do to get these titles? Or does it just depend on how long you've been on the site?

    But I don't think it's a matter of how long. I used to be a 'Trainee' because I just joined on the first of last month, and until a week ago that was it. Then last week, my title changed to 'Newbie'. Is that like an upgrade or something?

    Now I am confused as hell because it's changed back to 'Trainee'. What is going on?!

    Number of posts determines your title. Staff has been changing the titles, so yours might have been changed during the switch.

    I'd like to know too actually. I think it changes when you reach a certain level of posts. Mine changed from trainee to newbie when I reached 500 posts iirc, and then sometime from then until now it changed to rookie.

    Whatever it is, the new system sucks. I was an 'idol' at some point or something like that but now I'm 'super rookie' :cryingk:

    Yeah, I didn't come up with it lol. If I did I would give out titles based on other stuff too and not just on "contribution" aka posting.

    Well, the titles change based on the number of posts/messages that you have, unless you get married or something, in which case that becomes your permanent title.

    As for why it might have changed/been bumped down, I believe just a few weeks ago they finalized what number of messages you need for each title, so it won't do that anymore.
