You may have noticed when viewing threads that members have different grades e.g. Member (MIFSQN), Associate (AIFSQN) etc.
The grading is based solely on the number of posts made by the member with automatic promotion to the next level when the predetemined number of posts is made. Take a look at the image below to see the different grades of membership and the number of posts required to achieve each grade.
