    What are the requirements to exit the starter phase of this forum?

    A starter ribbon indicates the member who started the current thread. Whenever you post in somebody else's thread, you won't have one, and that person will.

    It is not an indicator of a new member.

    Unlike many other forums, we don't display membership levels based on number of posts next to a member's avatar. Instead we award trophies for a variety of reasons including number of posts. You can see a member's trophies by clicking on his name, then on the number of trophy points. There's an option to view the the complete list of possible trophies.
