    Hi everyone.
    I've been a member of BCUK for about 3 months now. I've noticed that under certain peoples names and picture is a title for example: native and settler. What does this mean? Is it a full member thing?
    Also, i've got my little pic up on my profile and i can see it when i log in, but when i post onto the forum it doesn't show? Is this a full member thing as well?

    I'm not the worlds greatest computer wiz so i may be missing something basic in my set up. If it's anything technical, please go easy on me!!!
    Many thanks,
    Nichola

    PS: Bought my first tarp today. Can't wait to try it out. I'm like a kid at christmas!!!!

    Hi Nichola,
    The names below are an indicator of the amount of posts that you've submitted:

    Member = 1 post

    then you become a Tenderfoot @ 50 posts

    a Forager @ 100 posts

    a Nomad @ 250 posts

    a Settler @ 500 posts

    and finally a Native @ 1000 posts.

    Sorry, no idea about your avatar though.

    Hi Girls! - I'm sure there is a thread around somewhere that gives chapter and verse - I'll have a look in a mo but in essence the bits under your name is related to how many posts you have made.

    Re the piccie by the side of your post... that is your avatar and you can set it in your User CP

    hope that helps

    Hi Nichola,
    the titles under a users name are, like you've guessed, "member" - if you've joined the forum and "full member" - if you've paid an annual fee (you get a bit more information and a "Full Members" section if you do take this route - occasionally discounts at some outdoor stores too).
    The "Native, Settler" bit are to do with how many posts you've made, though I don't know the numbers involved.
    The little picture is an avatar, but mine has been up for so long I've forgotten how I got it there in the first place - something to do with the "UserCP" on the title banner - have a play and see what happens.
    As to not being the worlds greastest computer whizz, join the club, my reason for using a PC is because my handwriting is so awfull!

    lol - me too!

    Sally - does your avatar show up in your current avatar section? - it could be that it is too big (either in pixel or bytes)

    Sally..
    I am a 50 year old happilly married (27 years), overweight man.
    The idea of mud covered pre-Raphalite beauties covered in mud is not good for my blood pressure.
    Please continue using your current avatar!:lmao:
