Hmm, that's actually odd, R'na, as you should need to have 220 posts to get to senior membership, and you're only at 125 or so.

All I know Cheryl is when I got on today my rank said sr member hrrubans. So I changed it to show dragonrider. I'll take a demotion if you want to correct it.

I'm trying to figure out what the deal is, as you're in fact still in the non-senior group and shouldn't be able to join the custom groups yet. I'm going to have to poke at the system later.

Actually, that happened to me, too. Nice to know that I'm not alone! Cheryl, now I know that was a mistake, but I'm kind of attached to being a dragonrider. . . However, if you have to demote me in all fairness, sol be it.

Ah! I've partly figured it out! There's a difference between being a "senior member" for which you need just 100 posts, and a "senior registered user" for which you need 220. The former is just a title change, the latter comes with some special privileges.

You were right Hans, of course.

Really, there's not much in the way of privileges, but you do get to pick a custom title, plus join a custom usergroup which will come with an apt set of ranks that you'll move through.
