    Why is my avatar ghosted out on some posts? This is what it sometimes looks like:

    I think it has to do with you being offline/online

    When the board recognises a user as being "Offline" their user will turn semitransparent to indicate their status.

    How come I can see this ghosted avatar on some posts but not others? I can have 2 windows open with a post in each, and one has me ghosted and the other doesn't. Is this just a bug in the board?

    Having just said that, the post I was looking at earlier (that I screengrabbed for that ghosted image) is now showing the avatar properly. I've not logged in or out for some days now, so must have been a bug I think.

    At 1000 posts you get to be an elite member, but you have to get there without spamming or face post-drop count :D

    Maybe we should have a "Seasonsed member" status who reach 500 or above though?

    Maybe, just means more work for me everytime something needs changing ... lol
    Would be good if I could have member groups that use the membership options of other groups, or other small customisations (ie groups with 2 member that don't act like groups at all...)

    maybe vbulletin 3.1 :s

    It's taken my 3 years to (almost) get to 100 posts. So by that standing, I'll be an elite member when I'm 50. Great! :)
