Newbie?
« on: February 16, 2016, 03:45:19 PM »
I don't think we should all be labeled "Newbie" Why isn't there some sort of transfer credits program? I mean it works for colleges. It should be very easy to implement here.  ;D

Ha! Now that's a good idea! Maybe I can develop some sort of ranking system starting from 'Newbie' all the way to 'Glorious Omnipotent Benefactor' or something along those lines.

Derned thing calls me a Newbie too. How embarrassing.

Agree about the Newbie thing and the "credit transfer" idea by Ciardelo.

Not sure about the Simple Machines Forum software, but usually you can change the name for each "group" in the Member Groups section in the Admin control panel. If for some reason it can't be changed, maybe make the number of posts to go to the next group or level a low number. I am assuming it is a number-of-posts based measurement for the group/level settings (some forum software designs will advance someone to the next group or level based on several criteria in addition to number-of-posts made).

Thank you AdoptAPet I was looking to find where to get rid of the 'Newbie' and what you posted helped me find it faster.

No one is labeled a Newbie now  :) :) :) :) :)

I have no idea how this forum software works but on my, very dead, forum it's relatively easy (phpbb... ya go ahead mock me) ;)
