    Hello and welcome to the AfterDawn.com forums.

    Firstly, if you have any questions, and you cannot find a suitable category for them, you are probably best off posting them in the 'All Other Topics' forum, which can be found via the following link.
    http://forums.afterdawn.com/forum_view.cfm/45

    The status system is as follows,

    You have to reach [bold]25[/bold] posts to reach [bold]Junior Member[/bold] Status,
    [bold]100[/bold] for [bold]Member[/bold] Status,
    [bold]500[/bold] for [bold]Senior Member[/bold] Status, and
    [bold]2500[/bold] for [bold]AfterDawn Addict[/bold] Status.

    *note posts made in the [bold]safety valve[/bold] do not count towards status upgrades..

    I wouldn't worry too much about your title for now. Just stick around and help out as often as you can, and your title will take care of itself..

    Those are called [bold]Userbars[/bold]. You can pickup and possibly request these in the following forum..
    http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/303592

    If you do request a particlar userbar, be sure to ask nicely ;-)

    Then, to get them in your sig, hit the 'My Account' tab at the top of the page, and then click 'edit personal information'. At the very bottom you will find a box labelled 'signature'. Here is where you add your userbar.. Type in the URL of your image with [​IMG] to the left of the URL, and [​IMG] to the right hand side, like so..

    have fun!

    The status system is only updated at certain intervals, I believe. So be patient & keep helping, and your level will update soon enough ;)

    by posting quality posts not garbage posts like "i agree" or "i don't know". look in the "my account tab" at top right & it will tell you how many posts you have done.

    it says i have posted 36 messages in discussion forums
    but it says nothing about points or how many I have
    are posts the same as points?
    because i'm getting tired of the three minute rule
    but i see how it stops spam bots from hacking into the messages

    There are no 'points' -- posts count towards status upgrades.

    "then how many posts do you need????"

    For what?

    smacyo137, take a look at the second post & then read what people say, you will then deduce the answer to your question.

    You have to read the texts properly before you ask questions.......Otherwise you will start to annoy people.

    This question seems to be asked on a weekly basis. Just concentrate on helping people & you will get there soon enough.
