I second that question. To me a forum veteran means someone who's been here a certain amount of time and has experience when it comes to behaving properly on these forums.
The Veteran badge description says: "Awarded to active long-time members who are part of making LF what it is today." This seems to confirm my understanding of the forum veteran term, however, some of the reasons why this badge is given to people seem to comply more with the "Notable contributor" and "Helpful" badges and others are completely unclear (eg. "Aresener", "Emperor of Aresen"), which makes me extremely confused.
