    Guys, look at my status (under my username). It says I'm an "amateur" because of the number of posts I have. I hate that. I just haven't been on in a while.

    Now listen:

    I have the latest firmware. I always do. It's jailbroken. It always is. I have saved my friends' iPods and iPhones more times than I can remember. I've jailbroken for them when they had lost all hope and thought their device just wouldn't do it. I have a blog, website, and YouTube account (applehelperz) dedicated to iPod Touch, iPhone, and Mac help. If you're not convinced yet, you don't know me. I am, and everyone I know agrees I am, an iPod Touch expert. So that's why the status thing annoys me.

    So let's please try to get that to do SOMETHING other than just check how many posts you have.

    The majority of forums have titles, and does it really matter? Thing is, we know that post count is irrelevant.

    seriously, the sense of entitlement is absolutely maddening. do you expect us to all sh*t ourselves in awe of your great achievements? what is this, some sort of contest? seriously, gtfo if you're only here for "status" because we already have enough members like that as is.

    I am now going to point out a few things...

    And? My friends have the latest firmware yet they are still noobs.

    Judging by your device setup, it doesn't seem so.

    So you are a good samaritan. Follow some guides online, jailbreak it, tada.

    So you made a blog and a website dedicated to it, your point being?

    Well, this is the Internet, obviously we don't know you. Judging by this thread ranting about user rank names, I am not being convinced.

    Really? Who is "Everyone"

    seriously! everyone who is a regular here knows that post count does not matter!
    look at totally 1337!! he was a post count junkie...always trolling in threads..but what happened to him? he made duplicate accounts to praise himself and got banned..
    i guess the status can give us an idea how active the user is and not the expertise level.
    and yeah i wanna say something more:

    HE GOT BGIZZLED!! LOL!
