Post more. It's a "all in fun" rating system of the forum, the higher number of posts you have, the higher up the food chain you are. It's got nothing to do with your experience with bbq'ing, smoking, grilling or any other kind of cooking.

Boy oh boy I would have loved to have seen the hair bein pulled outta your head on that one
.
I did the same thing you did probably...........I spent about an hour trying to figure out who why and when mine got changed and stayed in my profile trying to change it back. LOL
Then it hit me like a brick. These guys have installed hidden cameras in our monitors and are watching us scratch our heads.

But as said earlier.....It's all in fun and has to do with the number of posts.
I think i went from newbie to Fire starter etc
.
It's all good

Tim, that rating is leaning towards the amout of time you spend here in smoking meat. It has totally nothing to do with your cooking or smoking skills. To bad just reading thru the different forums and recipes and hints and all does not help cause i've spent many a hour reading thru them. But all this is just good ole clean fun. Chuckle time here.............................................. .................................................. .................................

While it definitely is all about encouraging forum participation, I think that every single "smoking fanatic" will tell you that you can't get to that stage w/o learning more about smoking meat than you thought you could.

Nobody could participate in this forum for 300 + posts, and not learn alot.

If Steven Raichlen has his "Barbeque University", this is grad school.

Your friendly know it all, Tim

Couple of posts a day and you'll be out of newbie mode and a firestarter real quick. Remember - each post you start earns you three points and each reply to a post will earn you one point. So jump in and have fun!!

I use the term newbie as an excuse. Somebody asks a question and I say
I dunno, I am a newbie.

So once we figure this out, have we passed the newbie test?  What is the next level ... Prankster?

Searched the database for how to change status and this was the first one that matched the question.  Obviously, I paid no attention to the dates since it scratched my itch.

All good.    Was actually kind of funny.  I read the first post and the first reply, then looked at T-bone's post count of 1,558 and was really confused.  Then I noticed the date  

 
I was thinking the same thing!...LOL!
I pictured him going back page by page of the forum, which is something I did when I first got here.    :)
