    USER MANUAL:

    This forum uses the "Rolling Message Counter" add-on from WMTech. As you write message in our discussion forums they are not longer counted only in a lifetime counter, but also in counters for your messages written in the current month, the past month and the second last month. There are also counters for the period of a year before the current day and the last 100 days.

    You can see your counters at the profile page of your member account.

    There are also statistics showing the top users for each of the counters at the "members" area page "Notable Members". Your forum admin however can choose not to show any of those statistics.

    There may be user promotions setup by the admin of this forum with criteria provided by those counters.
