It's called a title, it changes with your postcount. Or if you're unlucky enough some admin will change it for you. Chances are you won't like it, but it will be funny.

I got to choose half my title, the other half was given to me...

I think it goes like this:

Registered Lurker - 0 posts
Registered Just to Make One Post - Self-explanatory
Newbie - 2 to 9 posts
Warming Up - 10 to 29 posts
Green Marine - 30 to 49 posts
Mini-Member - 50 to 99 posts
Member - 100 to 499 posts
Forum Regular - 500 to unknown posts
Loser - You don't want to know
Banned - You want to know about this one even less

I'm sure there's a couple more out there, but I don't know of them. As for the custom titles, the moderators (usually randomly, so don't ask for one) can change your title to whatever he wants. Usually it's descriptive of your personality, and you don't need a certain number of posts to get one. For instance, just recently, someone got a new title after 7 (that's right, just 7) posts.

Theres also some real high ones...there is one (actualy it might have been in the old one) called "I must be Lüt" if you have over 5000 or something.

P.S. The title 'Green Marine' was my idea ^_^

I must be Lüt - 5000 to god knows how many

As far as I know the 'I must be Lüt' one is the ultimate in regular titles, and I'm going for it. I think I'll be the first one to get it since everyone else received a custom title before they made 5000. I aim to reach it on September 18th marking my 1 year b-day with this registration.

Yes I have this all planned out, so don't ruin it for me.

which half?

The second half I have had as my title since godknowswhen. The first half was obtained with my previous avatar, a 16-bit sprite of the great Sascha Konietzko.

Bah, you can make it easy. Wait...I just realized the date...but yeah, should be about right.

Can't you change your title yourself when you get a special amount of posts?
