    Under my name where it says 'member' 'active member', how do I change those to say somthing more interesting? I've seen phrases like 'boy have I got a lot to say' etc.

    This is another topic that gets asked a lot...can't one of the mods sticky some of these more popular questions?


    Its all to do with Ranks.

    As you post and contribute more the rank on the second line will change.

    The first line will either also display a rank, or if you have subscribed to any of the membership options, then it will display that instead.

    You cant amend them yourself to say anything else.

    In short, you can't change it.
    'Member' - is because you aren't a Full Member (that's a member who paid a subscription).
    'Active member' - is related to the amount of posts you made on the forum. The more posts you got - the higher you get (native, tenderfoot, bushcrafter, etc.).

    EDIT:
    Andy beat me to it ... :(
    I agree with Andy regarding making a sticky thread with this sort of info, I'll be happy enough to write one somewhere next week after my exams have ended :D
