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".

Look at Cedar's profile.
It's been changed to:

Autarkist Queen
Edtor of the CNN

So there must be a way...

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.

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.

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

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.
