Pardon my public display of ignorance but I searched the FAQ's and was unable to find the answer to my question. Obviously I have just recently discovered this forum and appreciate it immensely. I had noticed under the registered user names there are descriptions such as, "new member", "member", "professional", "associate", and so forth. My question being exactly how are these descriptions ( for lack of proper wording ) assigned and by whom? What are they based upon? Thanks!
