    How do you go from a newbie to a member to whatever comes next?

    Just post. A lot. That is what my problem is. I just don't post very often. Look at when I registered. Been here for a long time, but don't usually have the time to post.

    Anyone have a number of posts before becoming a member? Maybe more realistic than 5000

    It might be somewhere like 100, but am not positive. You'll find out eventually.

    Watch out from Mike, he's a quick one.

    25 makes you Jr. Member
    75 or 100 makes you a Member

    You were always a member, the title just indicates that you were a new member.

    For more options, upgrade to Premium.

    How many posts does it take to become a BS "Vet"?

    We have 94 out of 21,000 members, and we've been around or many years. So... a lot. :)

    4,000.

    Trust me.

    (For those interested, Scotty and pething101 are the members closest to achieving this exalted status. Just a few to go)

    Maybe Huss should add in a length of membership requirement in order to reach Vet status.

    Brian Cappellieri managed to reach 4000 posts in 3 or 4 months, right?

    IMHO, there's no way that someone who's been on the the boards just a few months has earned the title "Vet" -- something like "Obsessive Poster" would be more appropriate. :)

    "Needs Counseling" or "Housebound" maybe.

    Sweet mother of Jesus!

    I did not know this. Good to know I will become a vet sometime soon.

    Own Goal Hat-Trick has 4984 posts and is a BigSoccer Member.

    The answer isn't as simple as some expect.

    Ouch!

    Was looking forward to coming home from school and practice and knocking out some posts and getting a new status.

    Oh well.

    I miss my old title - Big Soccer Addict.

    There also used to be Freak, and Super Freak.

    It was Supa Freaky. Yeow!
