We get this question a lot so I thought I'd post an FAQ about it. Q) What is the phrase under my username: A) This is a user "Title" Q) How do I change / get a new title? A) There are 3 ways to get a new title: 1) Automatically: The forum keeps track of the number of Trophy Points you have and will give you a title. Here are the "ranks" You will move: New egg: 0 Just Hatched:10 Out of the brooder: 20 Chillin with my peeps: 50 Overrun with chickens: 250 Chicken Obsessed: 400 Addict: 500 Flock Master: 600 2) From BYC Staff: Once in a while our staff will bestow a title to a member based on something fun that they know about the member. This is done randomly and is not done upon request (members that don't like a title a moderator have given them in fun can request to have it changed back to the default... but we don't think this has ever happened). 3) Premium Feather Members - Yes, membership has its benefits. One of the perks of being a PFM is the ability for members to request a custom title. We've had some members buy a PFM as a gift for their friends just so they can give that friend a new title of their choosing. If you have any other questions about Member Titles, please ask them here.
