I've seen different types of people on here. (e.g. "new members", "members", "forum addicts", and one person with "enough information to be armed and dangerous") What are all the different statuses (except for those ones listed) you can get here and how do I recieve a different status? I know that you go from new member to member automatically. Does it happen with the other ones as well?Edit: Moved topic from to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

It go`s by post count. Post`s in a couple of the Forums do not count towards it.

Your status is automatically changed through the different types, up to Forum Addict.

Any Staff position is not automatic. It go`s by quality of posts\information given. You must first be suggested for a position by another Staff member.

The Malware Team is a different matter. It is required to sign up and await an opening in the malware training course. Then you move through and pass each step, Freshman on up etc.

As far as Armed and Dangerous. After a certain amount of posts you can add your own personalization below your avatar.

Bleeping Computer Membership Descriptions A brief overview of each group:


Unless the numbers have been changed:

Thanks to tg1911 for the following information:

New Member = 0-14 posts

Forum Regular = 150-349 posts

Senior Member = 350-599 posts

Distinguished Member = 600-999 posts

Posting in the Forum Games does not raise your post count.

Keeping in mind it must be family friendly and conform to forum rules and guidelines. :wink:
