    Regarding Bean Counts....

    I don't know if it's against the rules to post this here, but beccause I have no life, I made notes of how many posts = what kind of ubuntu you've got:

    0 (only if you have only ever posted in the Cafe) = Ubuntu Green Beans
    1-13 = First cup of Ubuntu
    14 = Spilled the Beans
    15-90? = 5 cups of Ubuntu
    90?-100? =Just Give Me the Beans!
    100?-250 = A carafe of Ubuntu
    250-350? = Way Too much Ubuntu
    350-? = Ubuntu Extra Shot
    ?-500 = Quad Shot of Ubuntu
    500-? = Half-Shot, Low Foam Ubuntu
    ?-700 = Dipped in Ubuntu
    700-790 = Has an Ubuntu drip
    790- 850 = Extra Foam Sugar Free Ubuntu
    850-930 = 100% Pure Ubuntu
    930-1000 = Grande Half-n-Half Cinnamon Ubuntu
    1000 -? = Dark Roasted Ubuntu

    Special Ones:
    Forum Donator = Ubuntu Espresso Roast
    Forum Admin = Ubuntu Master Roaster (A couple have changed it, like aysiu, but the picture is the same)

    starcraft.man, stop posting so fast! I'm basing my higher bean counts off of you!

    I'll just keep updating this as I climb through the ranks.... see? I said I had no life.

    I heard that it's different for each member. It's random. I've seen Spilled the Beans a few times. And Ubuntu Green Beans.

    Speaking of Bean counts, I had a coffee cup but it ran away on me. lol

    Re: Regarding Bean Counts....

    From the forum FAQ:
    What's the deal with coffee cups/beans and the funny titles?
    Beans are posts. The post/bean count can be turned off by the user if so desired.

    There tends to be a close connection between geeks and coffee, so that's where the theme came from. Yes, we know not everyone likes coffee, but it's just a silly thing.

    The images, their colors, and the changing icons don't have any special meaning. They simply change as time goes by. You will see (among other things) green coffee beans, roasted (brown) coffee beans, various sorts of coffee cups and mugs and so on. Like the titles, nothing specific is implied by the presence of specific images or titles (in almost all cases that is...staff, admins and banned users are some of the exceptions). These items are for fun, and are not serious. They are not a rank of any kind. They don't tell anyone how long you've been here nor how many posts you've made. The sayings and the images are a semi-random feature we have to provide a little kick. There is some structure to it, but only on the implementation side. We did this on purpose - because it was fun and whimsical.

    There isn't a list of what you get, and when, because that's not the point. The reason for the secrecy was/is this: while we want to reward people who participate in these forums with titles and changing symbols we really don't want them to become some sort of gauge that people use to determine whether someone is speaking with more/less authority on a support topic. Other forums use the title/icon system that way and more power to them. However, there are people here with less than 20 posts who can code circles around much of the staff and are capable of giving amazing and useful responses to support questions...and there are some of us here with thousands of posts who might get lucky with a good and helpful reply on occasion. The fear is that people might use post count and titles/symbols as a means of judging the validity of a post's content rather than the content itself. We had a long discussion about this in the forums when they were first started and this subject has been revisited among the staff several times. Some forum members and staff wanted to eliminate the post count and title/icon system completely, some have gone the other way wanting a complete ranking system that is clear and gives honorific titles with great meaning to those with higher post counts (that particular group is in the extreme minority). The current system is a compromise that has been working pretty well for a while. With the compromise of meaningless titles/icons, post count can be hidden in UserCP. Anyway, this is why we don't publish how many posts are necessary for a change in title/icon...it's just a silly reward. The post numbers needed for title changes is something that is easy to modify so it gets modified on occasion, when the admins don't have better things occupying their time, merely to maintain the surprise factor. Bottom line: it just a trivial, whimsically amusing little thing. Don't read too much into it...it really isn't worth the slightest emotional involvement.
    Read the underlined part.
