    Hi all,

    Noticed a Title under your username like Hardy Maple, Young Pine? Just what are those? o_O

    These are Titles that automatically change depending on the number of Messages you have written on the forums. Here is the full list:

    Lurker: 0 Messages
    New Seed: 1 Message Written
    Seedling: 50 Messages Written
    In Flower: 250 Messages Written
    Young Pine: 1000 Messages Written
    Hardy Maple: 2500 Messages Written
    Strong Ash: 5000 Messages Written
    Mighty Oak: 10000 Messages Written

    We had Titles in the past but they were more general. The new ones are more botanic-related :stew1:
    Hope this helps clear up any confusion.

    Hmm maybe I should change the word 'Young' to something else, any suggestions?

    Smileys are here and better organised than before :) Have a look for this little guy when writing a Message:

    Click him and the selection of smileys will appear below the Message writing area:

    Well, the word "young" connotes a not mature tree. But I don't think "Immature Pine" is what you're going for here. :p

    "Small Pine" doesn't quite cut it either. Um......."Growing Pine" maybe?

    Some of us like the appellation "young" since we don't hear it very often (actually in my case for the last 20 years!). Stout, no. I hear that enough already. Durable I like, but not as much as "young"!
