I am most happy to explain.....the animal you are, depends on the number of posts you have reached.
We all start out as 'Newbie'....then 'Not So Newbie'.....and then when you reach a certain number of posts, you change into another fun animal.
It's all pre-programmed to change when you reach a certain number. Some of us have a bit of fun with it and joke around when we change into different animals. There's a thread in Lauri's Lounge titled "Climbing the Ladder in the Animal Kingdom" for our animal status entertainment.
Some of our Super Veteran members, like Oluwa, have achieved the high status of 'King Kong'.....while our Site Founder & Moderator, Saysusie, has the top ranking of 'Emperor of the Solar System'.
Anyway, it's all just for fun.
