Dumb question, becoming a "coder"?

What does it take to get the "coder" user title?

By releasing modifications to vBulletin in the Mod section. Major addition hacks usually give you coder immediately, while others release small amounts of small template changes/hacks to get coder.

^^ How come you and I are only "contributors" ? When do we graduate from contributors to coders/designers ?

You have to release a lot of small hacks or one major addition.

Nope. You must release your own custom coded hacks in the modification section.

The titles are based on a release level system. Each release you make counts towards your release level, thus, giving you a title.

A bit off topic, and I applogize for that, but this whole Coder, Designer, Coder/Designer ranks have suprised me a bit. I mean I have seen some members holding one of those ranks that have asked some questions that no Coder and/or Designer should ask. So that makes me wonder how deserving that thing is. (holding the rank I mean). I really hope no one will hold a grudge at me about what I said above, but it is something that I have noticed, that is all, nothing personal to no-one

Even the most advanced coders have questions that they would need to ask. Not a single person can claim they know absolutely everything about PHP (aside from, maybe, the PHP Devs themselves).

That's why we are a community. We help those who need it, and get helped when we need it.
