    Hi,
    Don't know what it's called, but it's now changed to 'forager,pioneer' then I noticed everyone's is different! So what's it called and what does it mean?

    Thanks

    Hi, I asked this last week. Basically it changes with the number of posts you write. You're on pioneer, previously you'd have been a tenderfoot, an active member and a full member as we go back in time. Eventually you end up as a wayfarer...but you've a way to go yet..

    Its only been changed recently. [There were some names under the old naming system that people really didnt like.]

    I always thought it'd be a good idea to put the celtic tribal place names of people under their name.

    Like this map shows:

    Mine would be Brigantes [No 10] as Im from Yorkshire, which roughly translated means 'Hill Dweller'

    So you Tommy, living in Norfolk would have been Iceni, [no 16] or 'Horse People' :)

    That's because Lizz is a full member and one of the perks of that is you get to write your own little message under your name :)

    Ooooh nice I've gone from being a tenderfoot to a pioneer! In just one post... Hadn't thought to call it a 'rank' but I'll bite..
