I am aspiring to the status of "occasional contributor".

    "New contributor" seems a bit of an insult seeing as I've been posting since 2004.
    However, "frequent contributor" would leave me feeling that I need to get more of a life.

    So - "occasional contributor" is my goal.

    And you?

    Tried 'liking' you if that helps smoothnewt. Even Theo who's one of the 'experts' is still only occasional (at last viewing at least) and her posts must number thousands by now.

    Me too Smooth! I want to know how to move from 'new' to 'occasional'. And thence, to the dizzy heights of 'frequent.'

    I quite fancy the 'oh god are you STILL on here contributor' status myself...

    There's a list somewhere in the help pages.
    I did see it but now I can't find it again to post it.

    Surprisingly, becoming a frequent contributor has nothing to do with the frequency of your contributions. It has to do with how many likes you've received. You could post all day long till you're blue in the face, but if nobody likes what you post, you'll remain a new contributor.

    I don't get how you move from one stage to another! I seem to have got from new to occasional very quickly on the first day. However, I'm sure that I've seen people who have posted the same amount as me who are still on new, like Foxtail3 for instance. So,what's the difference?

    I see. So, it's all about being popular? How very Facebook! Or,how very "any school" in 2015!

    I was somewhat miffed to find, when I first logged on to the official new TES, I was now a "new" contributor; however, I was upgraded quite quickly, so am less miffed, but still a bit miffed.

    That's totally ludicrous.

    Oh well, I'll just have to remain 'new' then!

    We could just go around liking everything.

    On the matter of likes, I note that the green strip gets populated with the usernames of all the people who liked a post, but so far, I haven't seen more than two in a strip. I'm wondering what happens when the strip gets full. Does it expand into another line or crash the site?

    Where do you see who is following you, and where do you get to see your trophies?

    I'm guessing that the trophies are the changes of status.
