    I had a look at them all O:-)

    I liked one with the look of a gentleman with black dress and hat (page
    5), and another that fluffy one, which I thought to be cute. And as I
    actually have a beard, it matches somehow ;-)

    A possibility... but it would be nicer in the "tittle", to show there
    what each one actually is, not just a post count.

    That I usually appear as a "flux capacitor" and Jaeger as a "newcomer"
    doesn't mean a thing. A post from him is way more important than one of
    mine.

    Nor that I see any of that... As I use thunderbird and nntp to connect,
    I don't see those things.

    Oh, I see them now. What do they mean? :-?
    Hovering the mouse over any of those things doesn't give a hint.

    I would like to say that in my opinion, it is OK to use your official title within SUSE, in the openSUSE forums, as being part of the SUSE family. I will also say you are welcome here to post anything that fits in with the forum content and would love to get any tidbits of info from the SUSE organization. The more you post, the better your title will become. Trust me, I know that there is only so much time in the day, but your opinions and knowledge of SUSE would be a welcome subject in the openSUSE forums.

    Thank You for using openSUSE,

    Things are often not as simple as they seem they should be,
    unfortunately. It's a good suggestion, just more involved to implement
    than we'd like.

    No, but it would be nice to display it. Not that openSUSE memberships

    The avatar? I just played around a bit. It is on the standard list,
    there are about 300 of them. The browsing is tedious, though, only about
    6 are shown each time.

    Let me say that I like your avatar selection. While I am sure some will say it is silly, it provides a faster recognition of who is posting a message. One would assume you picked out something that you liked, but for me it helps to know to whom I am speaking and I do not mean that in a bad way either. I might also mention that others here have changed their avatar up, causing some recognition anguish, for lack of a better term. For the older ones in the group, such as myself, I only ask that you find something you like and stick with it. I also like seeing something there over just being blank and with all of the possibilities, surely you can find an avatar that you feel fits you. Any way, I like your selection and thanks for making a choice.

    Thank You,

    Odd, I thought Kim had changed it to the requested title. I'll get in
    touch with him and see what he did - I think I know what was missed.
    ...
    I talked with Kim - I was just surprised that the standard algorithm here sets "newcomer". You see, I'm really an occasional participant at the forums

    The change is fine, thanks,

    I think it's some kind of institutional award related to post count. A feature quite common among forums, and presumably easy to implement otherwise it wouldn't be there. Some might say that it's similar to the "stars" awarded to infants in kindergarten, but I couldn't possibly comment on that. You could try and sell them on ebay. On reaching three "feet" you become a god, and then the Administrators try to sell you on ebay, to assist with funding the prefects' end-of-term party.

    People are forgetting that there is this line of dots which represent your reputation just below you post ranking. Ofcourse it doesn't tell you what kind of repuation a person has
