In order to get our forum users to become more active members, we have three "bonuses" that you will receive once you have made 25 posts on these forums AND have been a member for two weeks or longer. You will receive:

- the ability to create a custom title for yourself (instead of "Member")
- the ability to use a custom avatar for yourself (up to 120x120 pixels)
- an increase in your private message capacity (up to 5,000 messages)

We hope that these incentives will lead to increased use of the forums which will benefit everyone. If you have any questions about these bonuses, please let us know.

Also, we have an off-topic forum called the GottaTalk Lounge which will become accessible when you have been on the board for a couple weeks and have made several posts in the other forums. The criteria for Lounge access may change from time to time. Once you have met the criteria for Lounge access, the forum will be automatically open to you.

Please note that members found to be posting frequently solely to gain these priviledges will face possible banning.

If it's not a glitch, then it should be under User CP>Edit Profile and then right *above* the date of birth fields is an option to type in your custom title. :)

The system updates things like that every hour, so sometime soon it will automatically show up - just depends what time each hour they are processed.

How do we get animated avatars? During my searching I could only find that they were not allowed but I have seen several animated ones on here that are not on the standard list.

The only animated avatars allowed are the ones in the standard categories. Any others you may see are either for admins, mods or retailer reps.

In the thread, you should be able to go to the Thread Tools drop down menu at the top and then "edit thread"

I'm trying to change the title under my name but I keep getting this:

vBulletin Message
You did not enter the correct format for the Anti-Spammer: Can you spell? field. Please read the field description for the expected format.



Even when I just try to reset it to the default message I get the same.

Is the Anti-Spammer giving me attitude?? :tongue1: :D

Yes, you'll have to answer the anti-spammer question towards the bottom of the "edit profile" page:

http://forums.gottad...?do=editprofile

in order for it to save any other changes you make to that page. The anti-spammer thing is just temporary due to automated spam-bots being able to bypass the normal registration process. The only time you have to fill it in is at registration or the first time you need to make any changes to your profile.
