Changes to member display


Recommended Posts

So I noticed today that you now have to hover over an icon to get someone's exact post count and there is this new icon that when you hover over it says "Newbie 1/14". It is say that for everyone even the long time members like Kirk.

Can anyone explain, please?

Since the forums are not hosed in-house, I am going to guess that the host server did some sort of update that caused it. Since the IT department doesn't have anyone who works weekends, I'll see what I can find out on Monday.

I had not noticed that change either until I read this post.

Very interesting. I don't follow the Badges shown on my Profile page. I have 3 badges where Chalkie has 5 badges. There seems to be up to 14 difference badges.

Just like TV programs tune in next week for another part of the story

Wow! I just got a  congratulations message that my rank was changed to 'Rookie'.  I've been on here sine 2003!!  This nonsense has got to go.  Who cares?

Any idea what you might have done?

My guess is that this will simply be based on post count since the update. Most "rankings" on message boards are done this way. Not much different than simply listing the number of posts as has been done all along.

Your post count is below your screen name and picture, expressed as  1.3k. I have no clue about the badges significance. One says "posting machine" with a tiny number encircled?

Understood. My point was that your "rank" will most likely change as your post count, since the update, increases.

That seems correct. Mine just went up. It is actually pretty hilarious when someone like Kirk with 14K+ posts is just a rookie.

If it were up to me, there would be no numbers of posts shown. I have to chuckle when someone complains about new things and at the same time says that they don't matter.  😊

I just received an Apprentice badge; what does that mean?

Maybe if you stick around long enough they will make you a journeyman? I noticed that I am now an apprentice too! 

I sent an email to IT to see what they know of this change but have not heard back.
