I happened to glance at the info on the left of the screen and it says that I am now a "forum regular". Well, I've been asking a lot of questions and reading a lot, but I wouldn't say I'm a "regular". I suppose I can live with it as long as I don't qualify as an "addict". Maybe they could introduce some new descriptions "hanging around a lot because doesn't have a clue", "searches for the same information over and over", "asks lots of dopey questions" or "got nothing better to do"??

What about "Forum Regular" for no apparent, particular, reason? :trumpet: Hence shortened to fit in the allowable space to "Forum Regular". :thumbsup:

At least it's better than "Forum Irregular". :flowers:

I don't think I should have taken that NerdTest.

This is the result and the link they gave me.
