It's the last bit of the "basics of ishness..." Thread
Avatars

Since the first days of this forum back in 2004 we have had 'The Good Life' avatars next to members' posts. The more you post the higher up the good life ranking you go. This is a breakdown of the rankings.

margo - newbie 0 - 24
Jerry - Bit higher than newbie 25-49
Tom Good 50-99
Barbara Good 100-199
Living the good life (all 4 of them) 200-500

A Selfsufficientish Regular 500 + Your own choice of avatar

This can cause confusion as at times everyone looks like they have the same avatar, so we encourage you to upload your own to use alongside this avatar or pick one from our selection. The maximum size of avatars is 120 x 200 pixels

It's ever since the last major board update. I still struggle with the drop down "active topics" bit but I'm getting more used to it now. :lol:
