    Hi, I'm SkywalkerSquadron. I've loved Star Wars since I was a little kid and am glad I found these forums. I joined today. I read a lot of EU, so I'll probably spend a lot of time in the Literature forums.

    Could some people please explain some things like trophy points and why some people have stars below their name next to their comments? Also, how do I advance from "Jedi Youngling?"

    SkywalkerSquadron: Welcome aboard. You seem to already know which forums are where your interests lie. Have fun, but if you have any issues such as what you asked about, this thread is your tech support. As to your questions: trophy points are earnes by other JCers liking your posts, reaching milestone post counts, etc. The stars actually signify post counts. If you put your mouse over a star it will show you how many posts a JCer has. Your Youngling status will be elevated based upon post count & trophy points.

    Welcome SkywalkerSquadron! :)

    It seems that you have lurked around for a while already and found your favorite boards already. But in case you like suggestions, just let us know, ok? Same goes for questions of course. :)

    In addition to Chorus answer, you can reach a different "rank"/title by getting more and more trophie points:


    Youngling - 0 points
    Padawan - 15 points
    Knight - 50 points
    Master - 45 points
    Grand Master - 100 points
    Force Ghost - 200 points
    Kwisatz Haderach - 5000 points

    And here you can find how you get trophie points.

    Enjoy your stay. :)
