Well, the moderators and I have decided to make a new User Group which is called "Trusted Adviser". As we go through different people we are looking at people who help people a lot and who we feel give good advice / help in threads. In part this is recognition for all the help some specific people give and to indicate we feel their advice is typically very trust worthy. We're just starting this so it will be a bit before we sort through people and make decision on who to add at this time.
Note that this is based upon our opinions, number of Thanked posts, Karma, etc., not the absolute number of individual posts or any other single aspect.
NOTE: Each person with over 10 posts can put in a custom User Title which shows under their name in every post they make, so you can change your User Title in your User Profile
(See "Custom User Title" in that page near the top) Anyone who does not put in a custom User Title will show the "default" User Title for that user group. Others will have what ever they entered as a custom User Title. The distinction is by Color.
The User Groups in the forum are shown on the forum home page in the User Group Key which is in the bottom of the box at the top of the page which shows Who's Online.
