I just checked my first post from a few minutes ago on Engine Break In and saw that "Lurker" was posted beneath my name. I'd rather it show me as a member. How can I change that status?

Thanks

Vespinado's sentiment concerning lurking and posting is the best welcome possible for us new lurker-members. Welcome to you from an Ohio beginning Vespa rider.

Aloha and welcome to the forum from Hawaii. Yup the lurker moniker always makes one sound like a perv. You get rid of it fast. See it's gone already.
