    What does the Permission Groups setting do in your profile? I've got two choices: Senior Member with Ads and Subscribing Member. I have no idea what the advantage of one over the other is.


    Thanks.

    It will change the color your username is displayed as. For example, the light purple of "supporting member" or the darker purple color of "ECF Veteran", etc. I think using the standard post-count-based user title colors it red

    I don't know offhand if the color schemes are different in different forum skins, so pardon if my color descriptions aren't the same as what you see

    Thanks! I would never have guessed that's what it controls.

    It may affect the presence of ads, too, now that I think about it. The more senior your rank (based on post count) the less ads you see IIRC. Selecting supporting member I think removes the ads, as well

    That might have changed or I might not be remembering right, I've been here too long to remember for sure


    EDIT: geez, I think I need to go to bed. My brain is definitely tired if I'm putting disclaimers in all of my posts :lol:

    Haha. No big deal. I haven't seen an ad here in a very long time. Frankly, I was starting to wonder about that. Your explanation fills in some blanks.

    Another quick question: You know how some people are able to customize their title, so you don't see Ultra Member, or Senior Member, but like what you have...how is that done? Is that based on post count, too?

    That should be available to you now. Click Settings at the top, then Edit Profile on the left, or click this link: http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/forum/profile.php?do=editprofile

    In the second section "Optional Information...", the first section is labeled "Custom User Title". Just fill in the blank, then scroll to the bottom and click "Save Changes". To reset to forum default, just select the checkbox in the same section, and click Save Changes, and it will reset.

    Hope this helps! :)
