We have five membership ranks:
Plus a few special ones for staff members and moderators.
A member's highest rank is shown as your title under their name in the forums. The higher the rank, the more privileges are available (like a larger inbox and access to exclusive competitions).
New members start with the Novice Member rank.
Members are promoted up through the ranks by earning Trophy Points. These are awarded for contributing to the forums in various ways like posting messages and receiving positive post ratings (e.g. Thanks and Likes) from other members. This is the list of Trophies and the points awarded.
You are a very welcome Guest here at AVForums. Guests may view and search the the website, but only members may post messages, enter competitions and benefit from all the other advantages of being a part of this great community.
