How many post do I need to get beyond 'Budding member. I mean it makes feel so insanificant being called this weak title. Why is it even called 'Budding' what like a flower! What about Exploding Member?! At times it makes me feel entirely useless! I can't stop thinking about it!! I don't sleep, i don't eat!
Can I do anything to change this faster? Walk up stairs? Run a Marathon backwards?

Some on please help me! Tell me how long I have to suffer this horrible fate?!?

The title is calculated based upon all activity on the site. So things like keeping a blog, uploading photos, etc will also 'help' with losing this particular title.

Working on the wiki also helps:)

Wiki is a user-editable travel guide we have on this site. I'm sure your experience in travelling to every state in the US would be useful in this. Start contributing and get yourself upgraded!

You can also start a blog on your travels and even post your running stories there! :)

Don't worry too much about feeling useless. Our fellow member, mikeyBoab, remained a Budding Member until almost 3000 posts. Imagine how useless he felt with almost 600 times more than you have now! We even awarded him a couple of unofficial titles, namely Respected Budding Member and Off-topic Guru. It was later found that there was a bug in the system that prevented some members from being promoted. After it has been fixed, he skipped the Full Member rank to become a Respected Member. :)

Eric (dr.pepper) is a moderator eventhough with only 56 posts because he's the chief editor of the site. He has posted over a hundred articles in the official TP blog. He is also a brother of the admins. :)

Now start working on your title like how you'd train for a marathon.

Nah, not two years yet. You have only been a member for 15 months. You joined on 15 June 2006. :)

Resize your photos to about 800 pixels wide or less, and you should be able to upload a considerable amount of photos every month. And if your photos have been picked to be featured, you're a step closer to being promoted. Upload a photo of yourself too. I've been wondering how a "funny and serious, tall and short" person looks like. So start uploading now! :)

As for the title admin, I've asked before too. They didn't want to give. :(

What about Exploding Member?!

There are some members, whom that title would suit.
