Could somebody please explain what the stars and ranking besides people's names mean?

Also, when a topic is locked what exactly does that mean? Are some topics locked to some people and not to others? Can people lock others out of their topics? Are topics locked for a set period of time or does it depend on other factors?

Thank you for assistance.

The stars simply relate to the number of posts the poster has made.
A locked topic is locked to everyone, except a moderator.
Hope this helps.

In addition to what Ozgeorge said, I believe only an Admin or Moderator can lock or unlock a thread.  As far as how long a locked thread remains locked, that's generally up to the discretion of the Admin/Moderator who locked the thread.

Thank you for this. Where can I find more information about these symbols and what the different stars mean?

Here's the current system for stars and titles:

Newbie (0-24 posts) - 1 star
Jr. Member (25-99) - 2 stars
Member (100-449) - 3 stars
Sr. Member (450-999) - 4 stars
Elder (1000-1499) - 5 stars
High Elder (1500-1999) - 6 stars
OC.net Guru (2000-2499) - 7 stars
Archon (2500+) - 8 stars

Section Moderator (regardless of posts) - 5 blue stars
Global Moderator (regardless of posts) - 5 green stars
Administrator (regardless of posts) - 5 red stars

Warning levels - dots, not stars (hopefully you won't need this info, but it's obvious when you see it).

Darn.

Eh. Could you possibly start keeping statistics on the number of edits a user makes? I'm certain I'd have more edits in a month than anyone else would in a year!  Cool  Tongue

When it comes to editing my own posts, I could probably give you a run for your money. Wink

Here's the PM I sent Robert:

I think maybe we should have a few names in between OC.net Guru and Archon.  Something like "Duke" and "Archduke."  Of course, above Archon you could have "OC.net Addict."  And then the super-upper echelon (whatever we set it as) could be "The Founders' Club" since Anastasios will get there way before anyone else.

Here's my suggestion:

Newbie (0-24 posts) - 1 star
Jr. Member (25-99) - 2 stars
Member (100-449) - 3 stars
Sr. Member (450-999) - 4 stars
Elder (1000-1499) - 5 stars
High Elder (1500-1999) - 6 stars
OC.net Guru (2000-2499) - 7 stars
Duke (2500-3249) - 8 stars
Archduke - (3250-4000) - 9 stars
Archon - (4000-4999) - 10 green stars
Archon Notarios (5000-5999) - 10 blue stars  (Secretary)
Archon Megas Logothetis (6000-6999) - 10 gold stars  (Prime Minister/Secretary of state)
Founders' Club (7000+) - 10 red stars

Addendum: Nothing like bringing out old Byzantine titles to supplement the nomenclature here at OC.net!  I hope one day to achieve the level of Megas Logothetis of the site!

Good.  Not that I'd notice - I think I'm one of the few in the current "Archon" category who wouldn't change names overnight...
