    We've added a couple of things next to your username on posts:

    Post count marker. Big thanks to Abyssul (who posted them here) for some neat little Pre graphics. This is an indicator of how many posts you have. It's easy to start collecting the little bars early, but as post counts get bigger it takes a lot more posts to collect them all.

    Note that moderators and admins don't show the post count marker - these folks are awesome all on their own and their Moderator badge is the only indicator you need that they should be treated with respect.

    As always, posts in Off Topic and the PreCentral Meta forum don't count towards your total post count.

    Badges In addition to the post count marker, we're switching away from the text-only custom user titles to graphical badges for moderators, developers, top homebrew supporters, and the like.

    Forum Leaders must be included in:

    lol just asking! You are probably right. I see the constant moves you all make with off post topics etc. You probably have a quota! ltm.

    What is the algorithm to determine number of half-phones. I can't work it out. eg in this thread ...
    Garrett92C with 5,017 posts gets 5.5 = 1 per 912 posts
    Spader with 1,395 gets 3.5 = 1 per 398 posts
    BobKy with 202 gets 2 = 1 per 101 posts

    Bit of a mystery.

    It kinda looks like around 0.5 at 10, 1 at 30, 1.5 at 70, 2 at 150, 2.5 at 400, 3 at 700, 3.5 at 1000, 4 at 2000, 4.5 at 3000, 5 at 4000, 5.5 at 5000 and at 7000 posts, The Phone Diva still has 5.5 (highest I could find with the phone's showing).

    I believe the original graphic had 8 Pre's total.

    Dieter:

    Seems to be an issue with people like me... I'm a moderator for my developer forum and don't get the little Pre icons. Any way you could rework it so the small-moderators (those moderating their developer forums) can still get the Pre icons?

    And just to mess with the Android, iOS, and BB people, you should use the Pre icons for their status indicators as well! (as in, on Android Central, TiPB, and CrackBerry)

    They must be pandering to the immediate gratification generation.

    ^^ From the opening post.

    Also being a Homebrew developer puts you beyond the realm of post count icons.

    I see some people have the Pre graphics for post count indicator, and others still have the status bar indicator.

    What is the difference?

    I think they are still working out the kinks. The little phones should eventually be used for all members.
