I'm not sure if this has been discussed before, but I didn't find any mention about it, so my apologies if it has already been mentioned.

Some people here have post-count titles and user titles that don't match very well. For example, Ping's title says "Minister for magic", but the post count title says "Seventh Year". The same thing applies to a few other non-student people. I realize that the "year"-title is set based on the number of posts, but maybe there's also a way to set them separately, so they match with the other titles of that person?

If it's too much work for just a tiny thing, or if it can't be done, I understand - just wanted to point it just in case.

Kudos for noticing that, and I'll point out that it was a Slytherin who brought it up.  I agree.  It's weird seeing a DADA professor being a 7th-year student.

Is there a way to differentiate between the two?

Nope. Sorry. The years are the basic use level and there's no other way to do it, so ... sorry.

::shrugs:: oh well...i just wish there was a way, then we could tell what was earned, and what was simply typed in.

But wishing never got anything accomplished...::heads off to library to take care of that blasted Astronomy assignment::.

I am not a 7th year student .... I'm a graduate.  And a prefect.  So ... uh, there.

;D

If it helps, both are earned. The year titles are how much a person has posted (minus where we've cleaned up older threads). The other titles are earned either on graduation or on promotion to prefect/professor.  You can also tell mods and admins by the blue or red stars under their names.

Though ... it's rather amusing when it's in reverse. For instance, I noticed that Pro. Dumbledore's title is "Headmaster, Administrator, First-Year Student" :P

... maybe I'm just easily amused. :P And I lack a point. Er, nevermind then.

//glances at own title again//

I stand corrected.  Apparently, I got demoted back to 7th year again in the last cleaning out of threads.

//sigh//

I hate it when I regress like that.  ;D
