    I noticed the vast majority of posts seem to attribute or label our posts with Firestarter--what gives and can this be changed to a proper moniker?

    It's just the software's cute way of reminding you of your juniority. Make a few more posts and it will change to something a bit more noble.

    Welcome to Hearth.com, by the way.

    It also relates to the little green boxes you have under your avatar - consider those "stickers".

    That's "Mr. Pyro" to you, pal.

    Seriously though, I think you graduate to "Burning Hunk" next, which is pretty cool. We had a new lady on here once who kept referring to everyone as "Burning Hunk."

    it goes by points
    how many post
    how many topic
    and the webmaster can give you points for doing something nice
    On some forums it is called Karma points.

    I think it's Burning Chunk. But Burning Hunk would be better. Maybe we can petition the webmaster to change it:) Or maybe Burning Hulk! A big green guy with flames shooting out of his head...


    Oh, I digress.... Sorry.

    I think it was burning hunk but the women were upset being called hunks, and it was changed to chunk.
    Maybe we could be gender specific and have hunks and hotties....
