You have to get 1000 posts before you can change it.

littleman794 04-28-2008 12:44 PM

wow...that is a lot....i have a long way to go...how come the general forum games dont add a post to your file?well, i guess that would be a cheap way to earn posts....too bad though..

thx a lot though...

^You're right! It is a cheap way to get your post count increased. If I remember correctly when the first forum games started to gain popularity, members started playing the games as a way to get posts. The Mods caught on quick about this "fad" and locked every ones post counts when playing the games. This prevented spammers.

Meh, 1000 doesnt take as long as people think. Just keep active on the forums and itll come soon enough...

Oh and the Feedback Forum doesnt add to your post count either so posting here wont increas them either. ;)

littleman794 05-03-2008 06:49 PM

ok then, thanks for warning me....:xp:

Badges? We don't need no stinking badges.

1000 posts? I saw a guy with 620 or so and he had a custom title. Is 1000 posts correct or is it 100?

Darth Avlectus 06-30-2009 02:41 AM

^^^Like your signature.

1000. Got mine not too long ago. :devsmoke: Been enjoying it ever since. So go on, enjoy yourself here on LF and get you that 1K mark.

Make a showing of yourself and get involved. Right now I'm aiming for a few badges myself.

If someone with 620 posts has a custom title it's because they have done something extraordinary on the forums.

Also, sometimes custom titles are awarded as contest prizes.

Apparently, if you get a badge, you can make your own custom title.

Regular members can set a custom title in their profile settings after having made more than 1000 posts. I guess this is meant as some sort of reward for people who stick around and are active.

LFN site staff members, forum staff members and a handful of people who've made special contributions can also do so regardless of their post count.

Badges have nothing to do with this, they're separate things.

Ah, ok. I just thought it was that way when I saw a couple of members (Star Admiral and Darth Parametric) who got their custom titles after they got their badges. Thanks for clearing it up. :)

They fall under the "special contributions" group (they're managing the tutorials section in the Holowan KOTOR modding forum).

For brevity's sake, kiss enough ass, and you'll get a custom title without having to go the whole nine yards. ;)
