    I found this info once, buried deep in a thread from years ago, after a long and labored search, but can find it no more. How do I get "loaded pockets" and such? What are the target numbers and is it posts or starting threads that count? Thanks!

    Here is the schedule:

    "Award title"/post count/trophy points awarded/total points at that level
    Empty Handed/0-14/0/0
    Loaded Pockets/15-99/15/15
    Uber Prepared/100-249/30/45
    EDC Junkie/250-499/30/75
    EDC Junkie !!!/500-999/30/105
    EDC Junkie !!!!!/1000+/30/135

    At the requisite number of posts, a trophy point value will be added to your trophy point total.

    Does the ranking change automatically upon reaching point count or is it something you have to do yourself, I think I may be at uber but not sure how to change it.

    If you are talking about the the label under your username then it is a known software bug that will be fixed when time and money allows.

    Changes automatically. Did for me and was explained as such in another thread in this forum.

    While the "loaded pockets" title works just fine, apparently, the titles above that are having problems. As Dr Jekell mentioned above, it's a known minor software issue that will be fixed when time and money allows. It's possible that the next forum software upgrade will take care of it. We don't have a date set for that, in case that would be your next question.:)

    Yay! They fixed me! lol. I figured out what the problem was anyway and it was my fault. I did a name change and lost all my old post credit. It's all good.

    The only trophy that has functionality is the loaded pockets trophy, which unlocks the BST. All other trophys are just eye candy at this point.:)
