    How about a different color name line to differentiate between supporters and non supporters? Maybe a little icon next to the name as well? Something similar to JeepForum.com

    The supporting members names are in a fat bold type.

    So how to you guys change the tag of "supporting member" to the clever statements you have? Beside the needed advice, I would would need help with a clever tag. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Go into User CP and click on Edit Details. You can then change your user title (i think thats what it is called)

    In the User CP, click on "Edit Your Details" and its right near the top under Optional Information.

    I'm not sure what to suggest for yours.

    Anyone older than me I guess:confused:, that narrows it down just about everyone:D.
    I call my boss fat, bald, and old all the time to boost his self esteem. Yes, there is nothing quite like the atmosphere at a construction site.

    The bullseyes are sweet. Maybe the mods should have crosshairs though?

    :p

    Well, I can't speak for all the Mods, but I have my suspicions. :rolleyes:

    However, I don't need "crosshairs" to punch the "X" ring out of MY Targets. :D

    We should have a specific and easy to find 'supporting members' join/welcome area that has a FAQ section. Lots of what-do-I-do-now-I'm-here questions and maybe a list of new superpowers of the SM. The 12$ member fee is a bargain and I would have signed up much sooner had I know the benefits.

    There should also be a similar area/FAQ specifically for noobies that encourages them to go to the introductions section and complete their first thread. It should emphasize the first post does not need to be anything more than saying HI but encourage them to post something about themselves, reason for joining and firearms preferences. (Maybe a requirement to complete the membership application?) Explain how to select a forum name and why few use their own names. (Emphasizing privacy!) I think many new members are reluctant or ignorant of posting. If they don't become active within the first few visits I feel they are just drifting away.

    If this information is already here, then make it easier to find and splain it to me like I’m a 4th grader! [​IMG]
