    What do these terms under people's avatar photos mean? Have they been chosen (obviously from a list) by that particular member to express their activities (personality, whatever)? I see I'm a "Summit camper". I'm sure last week I was something else and I know I've never selected this description – and I've poked around the profile options and can't see any way of changing it – so I guess they must be automatically generated. But how and more importantly why?

    It just reflects the number of posts that you’ve made. Blabbermouths like me are thruhikers.

    Thanks. I thought it might be something like that but just wondered if there might be some setting I'd missed!

    The main thing to try and avoid is getting an orange label.

    An orange label means you have been spotted by another member trying to hammer the blunt end of a tent peg into the ground instead of the pointy end.

    Ha! I think doing that might improve mine! My tent has 17 pegs; every single one is bent and at least one is bent through more than 90 degrees.

    You have to be a blabbermouth with stamina. Consistent blabber over a long period is what gets you to Thru Hiker status.:thumbsup:

    Oh and the green label means you coughed up a few quid to help with the running of the forum. This gives you extra privileges and access to worthwhile discount codes.
