Changing "Registerred User"
 
I know probably a lot of people have all ready asked this but I couldn't find a thread where they were talking about it, but how do you change the words "regestered user" under your username? I see other people who have changed it to other things like General and Super Clone and stuff like that. Do you have to have a certain amount of posts in order to be able to change that or what? :confused:

I believe they're working on making the new ranks depending on how many posts you have. To get a custom rank you have to have 1,000 posts.

But do not forget it isn't a valid reason to spam the bulletin boards you usually use... ;)

2 things could happen then:
1. They (Admins) can lower your post count, so it takes even longer for you to reach 1000.
or
2. They (everyone, Mods, S-Mods, and Admins) will ban your ass. ;)

The latter option will happen in 99% of the times. ;) :p

Once you're banned it's against the rules to return.
Just an FYI.

If administrators can lower post counts, I guess they can enhance them... Right ? :p

Joshi 09-06-2005 02:26 PM

In theory yes, but they'd never do it, it'd seem like a waste of time (and a bigger waste of time for those trying to get the admins to do it...it's a post count people, not gold).

Jan Gaarni 09-06-2005 05:59 PM

They've done it before, but for humor purposes as far as I've witnessed. :)

No, the only real action that will be taken is a ban. ;)

Leviathan 09-08-2005 01:04 PM

An expeditious and radical decision... :confused:

Pho3nix 09-08-2005 05:33 PM

When do we actually get the ranks ?
I mean we've had "Registered User" for some time now :P

Joshi 09-08-2005 05:35 PM

I guess once that admins have time, they're probably busy with mroe important thing at the moment.

I just hope LucasForums' staff will put them back before we're able to choose a custom rank... :p

SBF_Dann_Boeing 09-17-2005 02:54 PM

Well then only 920 posts to go! ::

90SK 09-18-2005 10:26 PM

Time flies when you're having fun.

Leviathan 09-24-2005 02:42 PM

We all know that, but what's the link with the ranks' system ? :confused:

Aayla Secura 12-22-2005 03:54 PM

??? What I want to know is if you have to go up to 1000 posts, how come there is someone with only 77 who has a rank? Did they already change the ranks?

Joshi 12-22-2005 05:43 PM

They may be a Moderator/super moderator or admin. some of these people tend to hang around the forums without posting much unless they feel they need to, which is why they have a low post count, but people in those categories can change their rank to whatever they want.

It's probably an Administrator. I know there are a few admins with low post counts because they do more behind-the-scenes stuff.

Aayla Secura 12-22-2005 07:39 PM

Ok, that explains that, but why are there a bunch of people named 'Bantha Cleaner'? Or Wanna-be Pirate? Most of them have 0 posts. And I couldn't find ny that were an Admin or Mod...

Rogue Nine 12-22-2005 08:19 PM

The "Registered User" title will not go away until we upgrade the forums to vB 3.5.2., and even then, it will take some time for us to implement the codes needed to have them. In the meantime, we may decide to effect a temporary title rank structure or we may not.

Either way, you're going to have to sit tight and wait it out. Bitching about it isn't going to get it done any faster.

90SK 12-22-2005 10:10 PM

Unless you bitch for about 990 posts. I wouldn't advise that, though. :xp:

Ok. Thanks.

That's kind of odd, wanna-be-pirate was the rank given to users in the monkey island forum when they had less than (I think) 50 posts and Bantha Cleaner is a similar rank in another forum (probably some Star Wars one), but I was under the impression the whole of LF was stuck with registered user until 1000.
