    Default I've changed!!?

    It seems like only days ago I was a germinator, now I can proudly be called a seedling! How does this happen, can't find an explanation in FAQ and I'm wondering whether this is a points type system?
    How have some of you reached the heady heights of "guru"??
    (I'm not for a minute suggesting that I could cope with the responsibility of being a Guru, or indeed answer any queries about anything)
    Just wondering, thats all.

    It just relates to how many posts you've made

    No - and it's nowt to do with our wisdom as growers! It is a flawed system, common to many forums, where the gobbiest get to the top fastest!

    I'll shut me gob and get me coat!

    I think we're very lucky here - our Gurus all deserve the name one way or another

    Just as well really, if it was based on ability in the cultivation of green things a whole new category would have to be created for myself. Perhaps "Non eventful pot of compost with algae on it"... Doesn't exactly roll off the tongue though does it!

    Well, we need 10 more posts to change, not that we would post just for the sake of it to up our status.
