We have made a change in the assignment of user titles, which appear under your name to the left of your posts. Previously: Members went from user title macrumors regular to user title macrumors 6502 at 500 posts. Starting today: Member will go from user title macrumors regular to user title macrumors 6502 at 250 posts and then to user title macrumors 6502a at 500 posts. There have been no changes to the avatar requirements. As before, you need 500 posts (in forums that count posts) to have an avatar. This is now user title macrumors 6502a. The 6502A chip was used in the Apple III computer, but you may find it handy to think of the "a" in 6502a as being short for avatar. For a full list of user titles, see How do user titles work? in our FAQ. The new user title was added in preparation for upcoming changes to our Marketplace forum. For full details and discussion of the Marketplace changes, see this thread:Announcement: Major changes for the Marketplace forum If you have comments about the Marketplace changes, please post in that thread. If you have comments about the user title change or about user titles in general, please post in this thread.
