Confirmation of Avatar Title?


Website Feedback


Hello,

Just wondering why your avatar title is not confirmed until after you make 10 posts on the boards?

Related to this, why does "My Account" not show me how many more posts I need to make before I can confirm my avatar title (or it is confirmed automatically).

Cheers :-)

It's not so much "confirming" as "freezing" the avatar name to prevent further changes. You can change your name as often as you like when you first get started, but after you've made 10 posts, the name is frozen.

We did this because sometimes you don't like the name you picked, and you want to change it. No problem. But once you've made a bunch of posts, other visitors know you by your name, and so it shouldn't change.

(But even when your name isn't frozen, it's still yours, and no one else can use it.)

Thanks for the explanation.
