    I was a new egg, now I'm just hatched?? Does it go by the date you sign up or number of posts or what? What are all the titles? Just curious, kkm [​IMG]

    Hi kkm!
    Welcome!

    Yes, the titles are based on the number of posts.

    Some have custom titles bestowed my the moderators. These are entirely random and are done because of something we observe about someone. We don't do them on request, just post and join in and maybe someday you will be surprised!

    Can some members grab some links to more info / threads regarding titles and I'll put this thread in the FAQ section (since it is so freequently asked)?

    I would but the search function doesn't want to work for me today. No matter what word I put in it comes back saying nothing found.

    Must be a glitch with my browser. It works fine on safari and not on firefox.

    So has someone found the link to those titles yet? [​IMG]
    I would really like to know also. Just pure curiosity, plus, some more knowledge about BYC is always a good thing to help steer newbies in the right direction besides just helping them out verbally (or in this situation, in writing). Please let me know when you find that link. Would be very useful to me also... Thanks!
