Just as a matter of interest, when/how does one make the transition from 'New forum member' to 'Forum veteran'?

It's probably "post count" related

Chirpy is right - the titles are set by the forum owner, in this case Pentax User, along wiht how many times you must post in order to get "promotion".
No doubt John or one of the other mods could tell you the scheme of things here - it varies with every forum.

Right. So every time you post the count goes up

I believe I have read somewhere 30 or 35 is the magical number.
And a good bottle of booz to speed things up. If you desire the title very much. For me it is a harsh reminder of spending to much time behind the @3#$*&^%@?>":{}! screen.

It seems we get to "Forum Veteran" status very quickly, should there be more ranks?

What about "Junior Member" ?
I must admit, I was surprised at how quickly I got to "Forum Veteran".
Getting there! Thanks to you guys

35 is the magic number, I believe.

In theory someone could submit 35 posts about the weather or some other non-photographic topic and become a Forum Veteran

In my experience this forum is unique in only having two, everywhere else I have been a member there have either been several or none at all.
you don't have to be mad to post here



but it does help

I suppose... if one was to go around claiming to be a "Veteran".....there might be some perks.....I doubt anybody would think to ask "What forum?"
Fired many shots. Didn't kill anything.

OK, thanks guys. At my usual rate of posting I might make veteran by the end of the year!

Just passed 30 posts and have been 'promoted' to Forum Vetran so 30 seems to be the magic number

Good luck
