    A very simple one: How can I change the "New member" mention that appears just below my name ?

    I see some of ya with all sorts of better messages there ... how can I change it ? I've looked all over the user cp but found nothing ...

    Does this option become active only after a certain amount of time ? Or maybe it's because I haven't posted enough (12 posts) ?

    Just curious ..

    Thanks !

    Don'T worry, it took me a while to "see" it ... the option is there but is not quite clear...

    Here's what you should look for:

    My options don't list the field either. Perhaps there is indeed a post-minimum, or the admins at Vbulletin have discontinued it on newer accounts?

    I looked in the vBulletin docs and I found out that it can be parametrized by the board administrators. The option will show depndging of the number of days you've been registered and the number of posts you have.

    FYI I've been registered for about a month and posted 15 messages.

    Good luck !

    P.S.: If Dave or shamus can give ya the exact numbers, can you post them here ?

    Thanks !

    There was a "10 post minimum" restriction in place before someone could change their user title. I've removed it and everyone should be able to update.

    Sorry, just to clarify, it was a 10 post minimum, 10 days membership restriction. As you were a member for less than 10 days you couldn't update/see the user title field. Both are gone now

    Hey digital_signal_ welcome aboard!!


    I love the signature... I learned Binary when I was in College learning FORTRAN and COBOL...... (Showing my age again) :) :)

    I also dabble in Hex, because I play traveller - it's a Role Playing Game -- uses plenty of base 16.. :) :)

    See yaaa!!!!

    Jeez, I still do some programming in Fortran. And mostly in Jovial, which very few have heard of but is as old as Fortran.

    Well, now that you answered it, I DO remember Jovial, but only as a friend was talking it.. My favorite saying about FORTRAN is: It's pregnant.... I think it missed a period.. :)

    Mostly we "wrote" on punched IBM cards & shoved them through a card reader.. it was Just about the time the college got it's first Macintosh computers - in '82 - I think.. :)

    Ouch! I'm just a baby at 30. When I was in college, it was C, Pascal, Turbo Pascal, C++, and Pearl. Nowadays, a lot of people skip the foundations and head straight to Visual Basic, Java (servlets and beans), Python, and advanced application/DB programming like SQL, etc.

    My parents had punch cards around the house (along with *gasp* 78 rpm vinyl) that were abandoned patient records we put to some benign use or craft. Those faded yellow slips were just as alien as COBOL would be to me today : )

    Binary today is sort of like the decoder rings in cereal boxes of yesterday, or pig Latin and boy scout Morse code. Students use it to send relatively undecipherable (to the naked eye) messages to each other in school and online to decode with programmable calculators, PDA's, and Websites.
