    Hi,
    I have so many posts on this forums yet I am still a newbie! Why is that? Does the status change automatically? How many posts do I need to change my status to something higher than a newbie?

    Regards,
    DiRect

    I read somewhere that once you have posted 35 messages you get promoted.
    This is my 168th post and I'm still a newbie too.
    I don't mind though because then nobody expects too much.
    When I make an arse of myself people just think, oh he's a newbie, and forgive me.Lol

    Remember, it's "Monthly Updates".

    Anyway, it shouldn't be about the ranks here, it should be about how you enjoy yourself and how you love to help others/talk bullshit/flame

    hey..i agree that u should help ppl aswell. thas all good..but ive posted 110 posts, and am still a junior member. i've helped tonnes of people. when i was at around 80 posts, i only got promoted from newbie to j member. whas the deal?
    ..i don't think that this is correct, if it is shouldnt I be a member by now. I know that this is for helping people, but shouldnt that come with a good thing like getting upgrade to member. can some1 plz look in on this..thnks

    Hey

    The server is set to update Status once every month.
    So even though you have more then 100, when it comes time for the server to do its stuff, your status will be changed.

    One word, "Patience..."
    With that, all goes well...

    Does Status really matter? I mean I don't really mind what status we are in, just as long as I receive and give help...
