I think it's based on the amount of posts you have.  Not 100% though.

I don't think you can.  I believe it is based on the number posts you have contributed to the forum. 
You are in the 4,000 range so you are a "Survival Demonstrator". 
I'm in the 1,000's so I'm a "Dedicated Contributor".

OIL LADY'S DEFINITION OF A PREPPER: A prepper is someone who takes advantage of the monetary freedom offered by good economic conditions of non-wartime prosperity to stockpile for himself readily available supplies and equipment of a lifestyle-supporting nature. He specifically chooses to engage in such stockpiling during easy economic times so that when bad economic times eventually cycle around again, he will be prepared to engage in the self-preserving undertaking of riding out a lengthy period of scarcity of those same supplies and equipment without harming others in the process. The goal of the prepper is to be fully self-sufficient at all times --good times and bad-- without breaking laws or causing harm to others.

Actually, only the admins can do this. The lowly mods do not have this kind of power.

Yes, it is based on post count. It cannot be changed by the individual member.

Caught up in the fable, I watched the tower grow.
Five year plans and new deals, wrapped in golden chains.
And I wonder, still I wonder who'll stop the rain."

I'm on the trail of the lonely goatherd.


My take is that if the admins like you enough, they will honor you with a hysterically fitting tweak to the text in that one line-item of your profile. They will do it without telling you, and probably without any input from you as far as what the text will say. And once they dub you with that tweak, you cannot change it. It's a rite of passage around here to have an admin mess with that text and bestow such a nickname. Kinda like Dances with Wolves: you don't choose your name, the tribe chooses it for you.

"This is the first scenario I've seen where I question the survivability of mankind." -- self-made billionaire Richard Rainwater in his business analysis of Peak Oil, "The Rainwater Prophecy," Fortune magazine, Dec 26, 2005

"This is an emergency far worse than World War I and World War II put together." -- CEO of Virgin Airlines, Sir Richard Branson on Peak Oil in CNN's investigative report "We Were Warned: Out of Gas" June 2007/May 2008 03:05

"We've got provisions and lots of beer. The key word is survival on the new frontier." --Steely Dan 1983

"... it doesn’t really matter who is removing your civil liberties, whether it is being done by a democratic government, a kleptocracy, a dictatorship or even the green police. When your civil rights are gone, they’re gone, and you really are in trouble, no matter how good the cause." --UK journalist Anthony Harrington, "Peak Oil and Collapse Scenarios," QFinance, September, 2011

Our parents used to say, "Don't worry, the government will take care of it."
And now our kids say, "Don't worry, the government will take care of us."

the level of posts you've posted.


From a friend: Benjamin Franklin once said that beer is proof that God loves us.
I'm of the opinion that Redheads are proof that, contrary to popular belief, Satan also loves us.

Pretty much this... I guess they love me!

They sure can be whimsical. ;)  That's how TheWarriorHunter became theBINKYhunter.

theBINKYhunter is my display name, my forum username is still thewarriorhunter. Anyone can change their display name under the account settings portion of your forum profile. One of the admins/mods was feeling whimsical a while back and I stuck with it (mostly because of my cool avatar I found).

You could easily become Mr. Albatross, TexDaddy could become CaliDaddy, archer to shoorter asshole, etc.
