How do I get a custom title on my user name?
User Title:

The user title is the title line of text that displays right under the user name.

We have 4 options on APC:

"New Hire", "On Reserve", "Lineholder", and "Gets Weekends Off" are system-provided custom titles that change (advance) as a user's post count increases.

Post requirements for user titles are:

New Hire: 0-9 Posts
On Reserve: 10-24 Posts
Line Holder: 25-99 Posts
Gets Weekends Off: 100+ Posts

At 500 posts, users can add their own custom title by selecting "Edit Your Details' under the User Control Panel (User CP in the upper left of this screen).

Can I change my username?
The short answer is no. The forum registration process is clear about the username you select will also be the screen name attached to all of your posts. Our best suggestion is to choose wisely. Site Admins can change screen names in extreme cases, however, these cases do not include a poorly selected screen names by forum users.

Why can't I edit my post?
Post edits are available for 15 minutes after the post is made. After 15 minutes you'll need make clarifications in a new post with the thread.
