Mr. B,

Looks like all of us are newbies.  When will this designation change? I just can't believe that people like Nigel, TOC, Hunt, and many, many others are newbies.

Love the new board!!!!

The Bach-Man himself is listed as a Newbie, with 25 posts.  Maybe it changes at 100 or so?  Maybe never?

Good point, Jim.  I'll be retired in two months so I'll be staying on the board a good part of the day then....you know, gotta do something with all that spare time. Smiley

          I was also wondering how that star system works, I couldn't find anything on that feature or rating.

Let's see. I've seen strange devices apparently called diesels...

Let's see them go against a big boy, or a H-8. (Just for you Gene...)

Yes, what does the star mean?  And the other things as well.  Is this some arcane DeVinci Code? Wink

I get it. Each time one makes 50 posts they gain a star and a new rank.

Ben, It migh vary. Another star every 50 posts?

It might double, so next it will be 100, 200, 400, 800 ect..

          No Star ranking race any more either. I've noticed most new posters,
introduce themselves as "new to model RR" when they make their first couple of posts. Let's try to welcome new folks aboard for their new &  wonderful journey in the hobby.
