Your Membership Type Information

Find out about the various types of AVForums membership, and which type your account has.

We have six membership ranks (also referred to as tiers):

  1. Novice Member
  2. Standard Member
  3. Established Member
  4. Prominent Member
  5. Distinguished Member
  6. Outstanding Member

Plus a few special ones for staff members and moderators.
A member's highest rank is shown as your title under their name in the forums. The higher the rank, the more privileges are available (see the table below).

New members start with the Novice Member rank.

Members are promoted up through the ranks by engaging with the forums and earning Trophy Points. These are awarded for contributing to the forums in various ways like posting messages and receiving positive post reactions (e.g. Thanks and Likes) from other members.
This is the list of Trophies and the points awarded.

This table shows the promotion requirements
