In the status of my account it says "Newbie", is this newbie as a new user of this forum? Or is it something which ref. to the level of css experience - in that case I wan't to change it - how?

Sorry if I have missed something!

Hi coolzone,
It's just a simple ranking based on the number of posts.
It says nothing about your skills in CSS.

That link doesn't work, so:

Guru - you have to pay in blood for this one

You know you're a geek when you try to shoo a fly away from the monitor with your cursor.

Work harder there's more blood needed. Evil

Co2 you should have been a moderator long ago I will fix that now.
Well done on your Thousand plus posts by the way. =D>

DCElliot, you have been putting in some hard work as a moderator and deserve guru status.

There's a couple of others that stand out as core members of the forum that haven't gone unnoticed, roytheboy and thepineapplehead to name a few.

And many other newer members doing a great job.
For now that should be enough moderators and Gurus

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.

There are other bugs about, I've tried to set you up as a moderator as well.
I can never remember how to do that in the admin panel so went straight to the DB.

Hope fully by next time you logon you will be able to moderate.

I really think this board takes care of itself most of the time, but it can't hurt to have a couple of interested people keeping an eye on things.
thepineapplehead has also been elevated to moderator status as well as guru.

Really all you need to do is use common sense and keep doing what you do.
