I hope you folks are patient with newbies who are just plain nosy and dim.
When I'm posting etc my Username comes up, with Junior Member and avatar - I understand that. But then I have the name "Muskie" beneath these. Wiki's told me that a muskie is a type of fish, but how come it's allocated to me?

If you look on the FAQ drop-down menu you'll find your progression through the ranks all laid out for you.

Muskies, in this context, where a furry animal, source of meat and hides to the heavy worlders in the Dinosaur/Sassinak series.

Vielen Dank and merci too. Found and inwardly digested. I'd not made the Sassinak connection, though that's probably because I read them in reverse order (any excuse after the day I've had!)

BTW you are not the first one to ask about the ranking names. I know I did when I first joined.

The only stupid question is the one not asked.
