Newcomer in training
Member; 50 posts
Enthusiast; 350+
Booster; 650+
Addict; 900+

Then above that you might get;

Chancellor; min 2 years as a member, & depended on you having remained "in good standing"
Ambassador; min 3 years, same conditions as Chancellor

The last two didn't depend on the amount of postings, you couldn't apply for them, you just waited until they decided you merited the position, a bit dictatorial I thought, one of the reasons I left.

On the site that I spoke of, there was no clue how the position of moderator was attained.

By the way, one thing I have noticed about CF, is that it is very forward-looking, inasmuch that it treats it's young members as adults if they show promise, I say that because I see that there is a senior member aged 14, unless it's a typo,..... if it isn't, well done him, & well done those who saw his potential!

Haha. I believe the level is attained automatically once a person reaches a set number of posts.

Do you need to get it if you don't have SP2? I had to reformat because of it. I HATE SP2!!!!

I've heard quite a lot of bad things about SP2. MS is probably gonna pester every XP user without SP2 non-stop until they get so sick and tired and agree to download and install SP2.
