    Just wondering what these are about? Someone mentioned it in the shitbox, that some members are just Members and others are marked as Newcomers, even if that member has been here for years or if they have a thousand posts.

    Is that just a new thing, or did a userclass get accidentally added or something?

    Isn't that just default that the user can change on profile settings? (I have no clue honestly)

    No, I mean the userclass, not the custom titles. Yours, for instance, says Newcomer despite the fact you have a thousand posts and have been here for half a year.

    I don't remember ever seeing the newcomer userclass, which is why I made a thread about it here ;) I assume Costy or tj changed something, but I dunno if they meant to and it's still buggy or not.

    I changed from member to newcomer :mellow:
    Many people changed that way.

    User group: from 0 to 99 posts, you are a Newcomer... at the 100th post you get upgraded to Member (giving you access to the trading area)

    Member title: when you are a Member, you can edit your member title.

    simple as that

    edit: some users should be "members" not "newcomers", there must be a bug... did someone fuck up the settings? :hateit:

    Definitely a bug. Look at this banned member:

    it seems to have been fixed -- it was a display bug for usergroup banners, from what TJ is telling us :)
