after you have made a few more posts you should go up in the ranks. this is my third or fourth nickname. so i have been newbie a few times. ) i changed my nick the first two times only because i left the bbs and forgot my nickname or password and my ISP was different so I had to change it.... this last time I felt the nick i had chosen was not very good so i decided to change it to this one.... then i tried to get the old one back after a couple days but it was to late. so now i have this one. i hate picking nicknames.
