    You know, like those tags below people's names that say "Veteran" or "Donator"? If I knew more I would make a thread explaining to new people about this but I don't know. So can someone explain?

    Why would you make a thread about it if you don't know about it? Veteran means they have 300+ positive ratings, donator means they pay a monthly subscription to the site because they want to.

    Yeah I saw that, still doesn't make sense. That's kinda like me taking a physics class and then deciding I'm certified to teach it after I pass.

    There's also these: http://tf2maps.net/threads/post-title-ranks.1370/ which some users(all??) get to modify. They seem kinda iffy though since they imbue titles like 'expert' and 'Guru' for postcount rather than that members actual ability. (also that list might be very outdated now)

    Thats out of date by now. We've updated them - because of the same concern you expressed here - to one based on the Hat naming system in TF2 - Comfortable, Dapper, Sharp, Fancy, etc.

    Apologies for asking this very late. You said that some people could modify their forum title rank to their own customization and I've noticed it a lot. Is there a certain level you need to do this and where do you go to edit it.

    When you're a Veteran, which happens at a certain number of "thanks" (I don't remember what number? A hundred?)
