    It is tied to your post count (the number on your profile card, under the 'joined' information). You can set a custom title like mine after you have made 100 posts, this can be done via the 'personal details' in settings. I would assume it is also around this post count that the default title of 'New Pony' changes to 'Honorary Pony'.

    Not really: you're up to 19 already. If you stay active on here, you'll reach 100 in a few weeks, probably. The whole point of the 100 limit is to reward people who make a consistent contribution to UK of E. :)

    Just remember that posts in the "Forum Games and Randomness" section don't count towards your total, since we didn't want to encourage people to make loads of very short posts just to get their numbers up!

    Because a lot of the threads in that section are just silly games that consist of very short answers, or general chat threads. You could get to 100 in a day or two if you played all of those, but it wouldn't really mean you were taking part in the forum generally. Hence the way the count works. :)

    And don't worry, if you're saying relevant things and not double-posting, then you're probably not going to be spamming. :)

    Don't you become Pony after not very many posts, before you reach 100 anyway?

    I can't remember, to be honest. :oops: I know the 100 is for custom titles, but yes, you do change them anyway at certain points.

    I saw someone was about 80 posts who had a Pony tagline so it must be less lol. I actually prefer them to a custom title gives me a sense of achievement haha.

    As far as I know your default title is set by trophy points, so it'll change off new pony after you get posts and/or likes

    It is after 30 posts. Was a few weeks ago for me but seems so long :D Almost want to not have a custom title so I see what it changes to. I'd be interested to know after how many posts it changes to different things anyway.

    You do. I joined about two months ago. I'm still getting to know folks, but mostly I do feel at home here.
