Live for yourself never someone else.
Wow! Just got started on these forums, and this guide answered two questions I'd been actively wondering about, and introduced me to a third thing, which I love (the reputation system). Thanks!
*tries out the reputation system on the OP*
Turbine - forum signatures still carry Mines of Moria logo

Yea, so this going to be completely nubed out and im ready for an unbelievable backlash and tons of scrutiny HOWEVER ill ask anyway . Now with the graphic signatures I see on a lot of high lvl characters people who have 1. A symbol that when I highlight in game displays like (man-at-arms) and is sometimes surrounded by portions of or filled stars, what are those? And how do u acquire them? Also, what are the #'s for the crafting things like ex. Woodworker then in 2 colored anvils 6 - 6? Again probably super nooby but im interested and never really played mmo's before OR used a forum. So truthfully I hope this even submits lmao!!
Alright now to your questions....
1) The symbol that you see (Man-at-Arms, etc.) is their current rank in Player vs. Player. You acquire that symbol by (you guessed it!) pvping.
2) The stars (half or whole) surrounding that symbol are their rank. We have a 2,000 point ranking system with our PvP and factoring in a few things, you earn stars for every 200 points above 1,000 your rating is; achieving 5 stars at a rating of 2,000 and 0 stars for a rating of 0 - 1,099.
3) The Numbers you see in the anvils are represenations of the character's level of crafting experience. Each profession comes with 3 crafts; each of those crafts has 6 tiers; each of those tiers has 2 parts (apprentice and master.) So, that means if you see someone with a 6-5 for a craft, they are an apprentice of their 6th tier of their craft. Once they finish out apprentice and then complete master, it will convert to a 6-6.
That last one was a strange addition to a character signature in my opinion as you'll never see more than a difference of 1 between the two numbers and the apprentice level of each tier isn't of any real value. More shineys to look at, I suppose!
Excellent! But wait 6 tiers? I thought there was only 5. (Apprentice, journeyman, expert, artisan, master) do they count the blank before u make apprentice a tier??
OHHHH. I hate the amount of unupdated resources there are on this game :/ as for the "supreme" I feel like grand master is higher then supreme master lmao I wish they woulda named the 6th tier sutin cooler or put master at the 6th cuz I feel master is... exactly that master u can't beat the master son etc. But eitherway thanks you've been incredibly helpful and I appreciate the prompt responses. Also due to this I've researched the pvmp and it looks pretty awesome gotta start lvling faster thanks again

Nice work! This is handy indeed. Now myself and others here will have something to look at when we find ourselves stuck trying to figure out something on our forums.
Yes but really what I need to know is....how do I make the rolling eyes smiley on the forums? Three years and I haven't been able to use it!
Here's a question for a forum expert; how does one lose a hundred posts or so from their post count? I was over 10k and today I am under tht number. Very strange.
Just wanted to give a big thank Romoen for writing this up. I've poked around on the forums for the past couple years, but never got around to setting up a sig and posting! This was a nice help (just look at that smiley).

So I just lost another 100 or so posts from my post count. :| What gives?
Anyone else ever have this happen? It makes me wonder what they are getting rid of. I didn't think that forum pruning affected post count. Am I wrong?
Forum pruning does not affect post count because we do not reset the counters when we prune. Considering there hasn't been any pruning of the live forums since the last announced one, that cannot be the cause. However, we are removing old and archived beta posts from MoM and SoM. These posts haven't been viewable or searchable for over a year and their removal should not be causing any drop in your post count.
Well I just lost another 40 posts or so off of my count. 9959 right now when it was in the 9980's this morning.
They should just turn off the post count as i have seen in the past on forums I ran that people where more worried about post count.
