    Very nice, Darren. I may be a newb to the forum, but not to Stargate.

    Moving this up since people are beginning to get repetitive in their "basics" questions again.

    This thread was a great idea. I cannot say it enough. It helped me and I have been on GW for a while.

    How do you find out your avatar level...or is that the same as number of posts

    Post count determines avatar level. I think the levels were recently changed and I'm not sure what they were changed to, but I'm leaving up the "old" system as a general reference.

    I think it's 2000+ posts before you can use your own avatar.

    ShadowMaat - thanks for this great "Cliffnote" thread. It gives a quick overview and answered my dire question of when I might get a working jello gun. Wish I found it sooner. Thank you for the time and effort you put into it.

    Exclamation Re: X-treme Guide to Gateworld (for newbies)

    This is a great thread..!

    In the 'Science and Tech' subforum, we (a few regulars in the S&T subforum) have made a new thread that we are trying to turn into a concordance to streamline the traffic in the S&T subforum. It is our hope that it will help new posters that may not be familiar or 'savvy' with the Search function here at Gateworld, by providing an ABC concordance they can read directly (as opposed to guessing at key words), or simply ask a regular in the S&T subforum in a post within the thread.

    If people will use it, and it is successful, it should help cut down on repeat threads, and it might even be useful to the moderators in quickly finding the best older and more popular threads to merge newer repeat threads with. If any mods are reading, we would like you to consider 'tacking' our thread to the top, as a permanent supplement to the search option.

    Thanks so much..!

    I just read this thread for the first time, nice that it's brought up back again Quite handy for all users in general.
    Maybe Darren can keep you up-to-date so you can keep this superhandy post of yours up-to-date? (just an idea)

    He'd also need to allow me to go beyond the character limit on the forum because I'm having to mince my words as it is.

    Pretty soon I'll have to switch to TXTSPK!!

    If people could follow links most of this thread wouldn't be necessary. But yeah, I've thought about that. Or starting an X-treme Guide II with linkage.
