    It is a graphic representation of how many posts you have made. A new member starts with none and it gradually goes up to a maximum of six. Moderators and Administrators get six when their title changes, but pay for it in blood.

    I'll see if I can dig up the thresholds of when they change the next time I go to the back room....

    ...but to be cool, you must sport 5 stars. 6 means your a brown noser, but 5- thats just cool. 4 is OK, 3 your on your way. Per forum rules, I wont post what 1 and 2 mean.

    If only I wanted to be as cool as sixto...

    LOL, just messing with ya, bro.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    I know, I know, it has to be more than the Postal Money Order cost...
