  1. Hi TechSpot.

    It's been quite a while I joined here but I've been on and off, most times not logged in.
    but I think I've come a long way. how can I be re-assessed? from newcomer in training to the next rung(s)?

    I think thats an automated title that changes with post count.

    even the 'training' bit? anywhere I can see the scale?

    You've got to make 35 (quality) posts for the "Member" title. :)
    Below your avatar thumbnail, you've got a post count, in you case it's 20, means you've got 15 more to go. Like in about 8 more posts, I'll jump to the next tier. It works that way.

    Whoa whoa, they shifted it from post count to credit it's tougher to catch up to the old timers or previously bumped members. :confused:
    No wonder I'm yet Booster after crossing the 650 milestone...
    But who cares?! :D
    We're here for the fun! :D

    after reading the terms, I guess I still have a long way to go :D

    True. We shifted from all post count to points, but that simply means we have integrated more elements into the titles: likes, profile fields, birthdays, registration time and of course posts.

    The full list of trophies is here -- you can speed up the process (from newcomer) without having to post a lot in a short timeframe:

    Perhaps, "Newcomer in training" should be rephrased as "New Member."
