    I've only been a member of this forum for a little over a month, yet I noticed a few minutes ago that my status is Well-Known Member. When does this happen? I've seen members that have been on here much longer than me only listed as Member. I think I even saw one listed as New Member even though they had been a part of this forum for longer than I have. So, why did my status change?

    This is mostly curiosity, not really important.

    I think it has to do with how many posts you have and activity and how many likes you get, not sure tho just a guess lol

    I'd assume it is based on post amount and likes.

    Maybe likes and trophy? The mores likes you have would suggest being well known right?

    Who knows...
    The whole points system is rather new so maybe my older posts don't count.

    It might also reflect the posts made AFTER we switched formats...because Whitney has more posts than Angel, but is not up to the same status.

    Hmm.. well I'm cool with it either way, I was just curious. I was like maybe if you guys as moderators know someone from posting a lot you make them well-known status.

    Nope. The old forum was based on post count. This version is based on trophy points, which takes likes into account. I think.
