    i read somewhere that after 25 posts i can be promoted from being a macrumors newbie.

    why am i still one?

    how do i stop being branded a "newbie".

    ...i really just want to have that signature spot so i can show off my mac gear :).

    You need to give it a little time. Maybe by tomorrow you will have made it to regular!

    i see you have colors in your signature.

    will i be able to post a picture under my name as well once I'm not longer "newbie" status?

    ----------

    i also really am offended at myself for not joining this site sooner, I've been using mac products my entire life (I'm 27, my school started us on macs when i was in kindergarten) and have ditched pcs since 2008...

    You need 500 posts to get an avatar. The colours can be added to your signature, but not pictures (although emoticons can be used).

    You need 500 posts for an avatar. Loooooong way away.

    And don't be ashamed/offended at yourself for not joining sooner. I lurked for a very long time before I actually joined in 2011, and haven't posted a lot. I must be shy or something.

    well, this should be #30... thanks guys for all the responses.

    and shy? no, its just difficult to post something that someone hasn't mentioned before without sounding like a douche i suppose.

    ----------

    and yes. now I'm a "member" :).

    ----------

    so... sigh... how do i edit signature? i can't even find it...

    I don't even think it's that. There are too many hard-nosed people with overly-firm opinions that I'd rather not get into flame wars with, so for the most part I just sit back and read.

    On two side notes, congrats on the rank and nice to see a fellow Long Islander lurking around.

    If you can't find the signature option from the control panel, you don't deserve it yet. Good luck, and let the signature maturity be with you.

    Welcome member! I remember the days. Tbh these days I don't really notice when I move from one rank to the next, but the gaps get bigger as time goes on though. I think I go up a rank every 1000 posts or something. Still miles behind the big boys though.

    Just a suggestion...you should take a moment to read the "FAQ/Rules" (at the top of the page) if you have not yet done so...save you time, and avoid any possible future problems.

    Welcome to the asylum!:D

    yes, you're right, and i do that as well, i post as well to see which can provide the answer quicker.

    in this case, i asked, then i searched, found the answer in seconds, and now I'm flying high.
