Found no menu in the profile settings to change that. Where is that hidden in the board / profile config?

Membergroup - If a member has been assigned a primary membergroup, it is displayed. Otherwise, their post-based membergroup is displayed.
So, to change that :more posts. Way more posts :D

As SRS said, that's not an inventory indicator but a post-based group. Like beginner-intermediate-advanced etc you see on other fora. Couldn't even change it if I wanted to, unless I changed all the group names!

You can certainly *become* a jet, as per the label above your avatar but sadly, the wiki is fresh out of Jet stock.

One of my German engineers on his first trip to the UK ordered a "mirror egg" for breakfast :D

A fried egg, because I explained to the waitress what he was trying to say (after I stopped laughing).

GX4000, and in 100.000 post you transform in amstrad mega pc. In 100000 the amstrad Emailer.


And finally, after go the end of time and are the last survivor of the forum you transform in the big secret of amstrad....


The red dwarf toaster, the doctor found and you  live eternally making toast for the doctor  in the tardis. But one day after you return to  1980 you transfer your mind to  alan sugar body and make the king of amstrad.


All is written.

But don't we already have these machines? Expanded CPC's. Kinda feels like they deserve a spot in this day and age.
