How does one change camera appearing under the poster's name?
« on: January 04, 2013, 07:33:18 AM »
My profile became available to be edited and I've got everything situated except this particular data field. Canonflex showed up first and after editing was enabled by the admin, Powershot something or nuther appears there now. I can't find this discussed anywhere and I don't know the name of the data field to do a proper search. Maybe this is something the Admin takes care of, I dunno know.

You cannot edit that field, but it changes (automatically) with your post count - more posts means a 'better' camera. It's just a coincidence that my post count equates to a 1D X and I actually have a 1D X.   :P

Regardless of what it says, Welcome to the Forum!   :D

Yeah, it's a "badge of honor" thing.  The more you participate, the better your camera "badge".  I think it increments after each "milestone" of 10, 50, 100, 150, 200, 250 and then who knows?  All I know is that I'm at 5DIII after 250.  I'm guessing that once you get to 500 or 1000(??) it stops at the 1DX but I may be wrong.  I'm sure someone else has it all totally nailed.  You may also notice that there are yellow blocks there too.  The blocks seem to show up with the badge changes.  All I can tell you for sure is that you won't receive any checks in the mail based on your "seniority"!  (At least I haven't yet, maybe others know the right handshake or something.)   8)

Enjoy your time here!!

I got degraded from 5D mark 3 to M. 6D seems to be next, so I'll need another 400 posts for mark 3?  :o  :P ;D

Yeah, me too!  Funny just as we start this thread, all the designations changed.  I mention in a post above that I am a 5D Mark III and then bam!, I'm suddenly a EOS M.  I just passed 300 and I'm still an EOS M so M doesn't roll over at 300 anyway.  Time to start making bets on when 6D or whatever kicks in...

I guess we'll just have to keep posting in this thread over and over to see how it changes as the posts increase!   :P

They have been changed periodically as new models are released.  I supposed this thread reminded someone that models like the PowerShot S100 were no longer 'current', and some new cameras had been added to the lineup.
