Maybe.  Or maybe it's to make Tharg's droids look like they're busy beavering away creating rather then beggering about on the net with the Squaxx.

words

Correct! Here's the full list:

Code: [Select]
User Group                 Stars    Users    Posts Required
-----------------------------------------------------------
Mek-Quakes Leftovers       *        1825     1
Sub Basement Sewer Unit    *        499      10
Page Numbering Droid       **       110      100
Sentient Tea Bot           **       56       250
Prog Stacking Droid        ***      53       500
Posting Machine            ***      54       1000
Evil Cyborg                ****     16       2000
Battle Hardened War Robot  ****     33       2500
Bionic Fingers             *****    18       5000
CALL-ME-KENNETH!           *****    3        10000

I hadn't noticed the 2000AD Creators group only got the one star. I think I've corrected it now. Maybe.

To be honest, it's a pointless inciator or something we've got both words and numbers for. I'd rather we only had stars to indicate a user as a staff or important member, but it's a change to the template I can't be bothered to make.

Pah! Why should we trust you? You want to kill all humans!

There must be some other explanation. Maybe the stars mean how many brain operations you've had? My total's accurate.

Nurse! The screens!

How did I miss this thread? That star thing has been bugging me for ages. I've come in here cos I was looking for the answer to a particular question and thought this might be a kind of general repository of faqs.

My question is this. How do I post a link in my signature. Bear in mind I only yesterday figured out how to post a link at all so as dumbed down as possible please.

 :) I knew it would be something simple.  :)

See, I clicked on a button in the reply page that says 'insert hyperlink' and typed the adress thingy between the brackets. Easy.

That button aint there in the profile page as far as I can see. Forgive my ignorance if I'm missing something obvious.

That whole page was pretty much giberish to me. Is that stuff second nature to everyone on the internet except me? Did everyone in the world just wake up one day knowing it?

I managed it though. Much obliged for the help.

That cleared it up for me, I think.
Thanks.
They say you need to spend money to make money, well I've never made any money so by that logic I've never spent any.

hahaha. I like call me Kenneth, maybe that's because I root for the bad guys, except that thing in Raptaur, and the mechanismo units.

Bionic Fingers isn't that bad you know. I reckon it sounds cool, as I always imagine the cool theme to the Six Million Dollar Man playing in my head [With Sound FX] whenever I look underneath my AVATAR.
