Avitexted

Verb. 1. This happens when a forum member or two are bored and decide to start a 'Name Game' to customize the text under a members chosen avitar. Usually decribing the on-line habits/antics of the member better than the member could themselves. 2. A certain sneaky member with the power takes it upon himself to change the text under a members avitar to suite his own twisted sense of humor. (I.E. Oh no, I've been avitexted!!!) -This condition is usually followed by finding yourself rolling on the floor laughing...

We need to add one for the post count bumpers...new members that don't really contribute a thing to the foum, but post anyway. Oddly enough, when they reach 25 posts, they suddenly think of something to sell in the classified section.

Equally odd... their post count gets reset and they end up being "unclassified'ers"...without the ability to post in the classified section at all.
