Default What does this mean (yeoman?)

Under my user name it now say's Yeoman what does this mean? Is this a rank? Shouldn't ranks be assigned to how many cruises a person has taken instead of how many messages posted? Also why not add the number of cruises on a users profile and the names of ships? Also how can I have my html turned on? Perhaps this is why my countdown clock is not functioning properly.

We're thinking these "ranks" have something to do with how many posts you've written.

Hey, Paul, can you fill us in on all this...

If you were in the navy the yeoman is like a secratary the one who does a lot of the paperwork.

Lisa:

If I don't quit eating all this chocolate I'm going to become a "Vice Admiral".

Take care,
Mike

Hi showcat,

You can do this yourself! Just add it to your signature in your profile. My signature includes my name, my tag line and my cruises (everything below the "line").

Thanks for the tip Fern! I look forward to moving up in rank here on cruisemates but for now I think Yeoman is accurate. Lot's of paper work and research for all these cruises. I think this site has made me even more addicted to being at sea! It's the next best thing to being there while waiting for the next cruise. Im always learning new things from everyone here!

I absolutely agree! I'm definitely addicted to this site! Even after four cruises I learn something new almost every day! DH doesn't "get" it, but I don't care! He's one of those guys who asks "when and where do I show up" , while I like to know everything! We're a perfect match !

I guess I'll be yeoman forever. My number of posts has been stuck on 888 for who knows how long. Can anyone out there offer any help?
It really isn't a big deal but admirals make more money that a lowly yeoman !!

Somethings odd --- my number of posts were stuck on 888--- now they are stuck on 889. At this rate, I'll be 143 years young when I make admiral.
