Curses Andy,
I've been puzzling over this for days!
Six is so difficult.

So far, I think Dotty is nearest!

I was thinking about..
Heraklion,
Reythimnon,
Asomatos,
Lefkogia,
Damnoni,
Plakias.

But I'm sure there's something better.....

You got it Yvonne - although I must admit that I didn't know that when I started using Ostraco as a nickname.

O.K.  I'm going to be very boring, and suggest the following titles:

1 bar - New Member - for 6 months since joining
2 bars - Member - between 6 months and 1 year since joining
3 bars - Senior Member- more than 1 year since joining

You will notice that I have changed the criteria of entitlement to a particular category of membership in that it is dependent on the length of time one has been involved with the Forums (as is the norm with most organisations), not on the number of posts one has made on them.  At present, someone who joined last year but made only 3 posts is a Newbie, but somebody else who only joined last week but has made 15 posts is classed as a Member.  I always thought that this was odd.

Incidentally, Andy, why are you looking to set up six titles in particular?

Based on length of time is a good idea and I think I will make a suggestion for that to be added

[a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=1970\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a]
Personally, I think number of posts is a better way of deciding member status. Someone who had been registered for a year and only made 2 posts should NOT have more privileges than someone who's been very active for a few months and made a lot of posts.
Any other views?

Well when you have made 50 posts, you will automatically be moved to the regulars group.  You get extra privileges then

Looks like I will have to get another 10 posts in quickly then  
Will I be able to add more photo's then?
