I’ve just created a profile recently and I’ve got a question about all the symbols associated with members usernames. I see multiple trees and other figures such as a bear paw. Can someone take second and let me what these represent, or where I might find an explanation. Thanks

They indicate the # of posts for the user. A bear paw is 4000 posts and I think pine cone is 10000.

Welcome Snorty. If you hover over the first pine tree, you will see how many posts any bi en person has. You will get a pine tree or two after something like 10 posts - the delay helps keep the riffraff out.

It sometimes causes people to post drivel in order to increase their post count/trees much like what I am doing now.

FYI: If you earn a pine cone, you are then able to time travel and fly like an eagle...or so I've been told.

+1.

Always striving to enhance my forest; more trees and evidence of wildlife :)

Or if someone beats you to +1, +2 works as well.

Love it. Definitely fall into the category of "old guy that is getting to know how to navigate through the computer stuff". Great thread!

Sometimes you can reply to yourself, but you still only add one post to your count, in addition to the post count from your original post. So this particular post gives me a net total of two for the thread.

It also becomes evident that the number of trees one has does not indicate the level of knowledge about the BWCA. :) so read with caution.

And if someone is a dork and causes a whole thread to go away, then I think your post count on that deleted thread are removed. So don't be a dork.

My trees need water. Badly. My lack of posting in general is a reflection of the current drought. I will work on this.

Thanks for the lighthearted thread!

Now I understand the real reason behind accidental double posts.

I had no idea that my tree count was in any way connected to the number of posts I made. Nope, no idea at all ....

So don't be a dork.

This is always good advice.
