EDIT BY BOSK1:  As of 3/12/10, there was a glitch that caused most of you to lose your membergroup status.  If you had primary or secondary membergroups (including Alumni status for those who have donated), please re-post them in this thread so we can manually fix them.  Sorry for the confusion.  :(



Back by popular demand! Users may have noticed that in the dark theme the old stars display as bars (except for the green Alumni ones for some reason, which still display as stars). This may be rectified at some point, but at the moment it does the same thing so it's not really a priority. Here is the original first post (for those who aren't aware of what all this means):

Quote
Users who wish to have their membergroup/title reflect the time frame of their overall involvement in the Dream Theater forums of the past and present may post here to let us know what title you feel you should have.

Options below were suggested by Hyperplex originally, as you can see. Many thanks, Hyperplex! (Included below is my explanation for how stars will most likely be assigned).

EZBoard Elder - Requirement: registered and posted on the original DT EZBoard between June 2000 and July 2002
DT.net Veteran - Req: first registered and posted during the first years of the DT.net vBulletin board, July 2002 through ~2004 (give or take a few, if users' memory serves correct)
DT.net Member - Req: first registered and posted on DT.net in 2005 or later
DTF.com Member - first registered and posted during the existence of DTF.com, after the shutdown of DT.net
DTF.org Member - first joined and participated in the community at the current site, after the Board Split

Alright, because stars are currently being used for other membergroups, here's how I've added the above ones and incorporated the star system:

EZBoard Elder - 5 stars
DT.net Veteran - 4 stars
DT.net Member - 3 stars
DTF.com Member - 2 stars
DTF.org Member - 1 star


Alumni members who already have green username links and special Alumni status should post here only if they wish to have their group switched to one of the above ones. You will unfortunately no longer be green in color if you choose to switch.

So, go ahead and start posting here to let us know which group you belong in, if you want to be switched.

This could take awhile, please be patient -

Thanks!

Ok, go!

I actually registered with yorost I think during Fall 2004, but maybe it was early 2005.  It was around the time I moved to Ontario I'm pretty sure.  Maybe I could just be a DT.net Vember. :p

ok you're all caught up. If you're an alumni though, your green stars and alumni usergroup will take precedence, so your general look doesn't change.

I used to be FatalFaith ages ago. I doubt anyone remembers because I barely ever post. But I think I'd be DT.net vet or member. I can't remember. I think it was just before or after train of thought was released. So 2003 or 2004. Don't remember when I registered this name. Don't really remember why either.

And on the 8th day, God created Dream Theater. God then proceeded to rock out with his cock out.

Well, the new dtf.org  had the first post made on it by admin on May 18 at 1:45am, so I backed it up a day. I know things weren't down more than about 24 hours because I didnt' spend longer than that at the interim forum of (I think it was) Thal's.

What led to the split? (Another noob question, I know.)

This can be answered many ways and in varying levels of depth but basically a large contingent of people didn't want to be known as a DT fan forum any longer and regardless of any polls that were made to gauge how the members felt, the administration changed it to a general music forum overnight basically.

So those who were there because they were DT fans who wanted a DT forum to post on, made their own.

I mean, there's a lot more to it, but all that amounts to is drama.
