I'm sure this has been asked and answered a million times but...

...what do the stars that appear under our user names here mean?
I always thought it was something to do with either how long you were a member or how many posts you had. It took me forever to get up to 3 but Cyberleader has 2 after just 2 days and 100 posts. I also noticed David Bishop only has 1 under his and he has loads more posts than me and has been a member much longer.

So is it just something to do with how active you are in a short period of time, or something??? What would you have to do to get 5 or 6? Dont get it and sorry again it I'm missing a thread about this already, did search but nothing came up.

The less stars under your name, the gayer you are.

Thank God for that as I thought it was all down to penis size.

Could there be some correlation with number of posts, perhaps?

It's number of posts, unless you're a godlike admin.  After a quick look, I'd suggest it's:

1-99:  One star (Sub Basement Sewer Unit)
100-499:  Two stars (Sentient Tea Bot)
500-999:  Three stars (Prog Stacking Droid)
 1000-1999:  Three Stars (Posting Machine)
2000-2999:  Four Stars (Evil Cyborg)
3000-4999:  Four stars (Battle Hardened War Robot)
5000-9999: Five Stars (Bionic Fingers)
10000+ Five Stars, (Call Me Kenneth!)

Please expand/correct if you notice additions/variations!

That just may be some kind of punishment.  ;)

Busted down to 1 star for writing an episode of doctors with not nearly enough teenage lesbian experimentation in I'll wager.

On the other hand, The Good Doc asked the other day when she'd stop being a Sewer Droid and now she knows.  Is TB's info correct?

I think all 2000ad creators are only allowed one star despite the number of posts they have, this is just to put them in there place one this board and let them know what there taught of.
