I have been a member in this forum since close to three years, and have walked the Camino Frances twice, the Portuguese from Lisbon, the Ingles, and to Muxia and Finisterre twice.

How do I get past being a “New Member?” :)

Just wondering ... though it doesn’t really matter...

Try going into every single little micro detail you can possibly imagine about the camino and post questions about it☺ you name it ,anything!! And every detail should have at least dozens of options on every genre e.g socks,gloves, boots, teddys, ear buds !! Dont matter☺

Patience MacMac, patience.

Being upgraded is huge honour bestowed upon the worthy ones by the Great Giver called Ivar.

Ivar sits on high and uses a mysterious thing known only as "Software" to us earth -bound thinglets to identify the "Chosen Few" who will find themselves bestowed upon with a new title.

Be warned though my patiently waiting and desiring to be upgraded pilgrim award seeker.

It is an enormous responsibility to take upon yourself.

You will be expected to help, succour, be very patient with, share knowledge with and assist all soon to be "New Members" by answering their questions, quelling their fears, understanding their needs and remembering we were all new once upon a pre-Camino walk time.

If you wait, the promotion will come.

Buen (being upgraded-soon) Camino

You poor devil! You have a long while to wait for the wheels of change to grind so your status changes. Or, as suggested above, you can take your destiny into your own hands and change it yourself in your details section. Have you an idea of what description you prefer? I didn’t like the notion of being a veteran so just used pilgrim. Except for when I forget and get crotchety, it suits!

In order to be a "veteran member" apparently you have to have survived battles. I still bear the scars of my first "real pilgrim" skirmish and have only recently returned from the "Where does the Camino Frances begin" front.
Do the skirmishes with the moderators counts??? If so, I must've been triple double veteran member by now :D :D :D



PS (Geez, I hope I won't get minus points for this one as I haven't been out of my last 9 ... ;))

Haha my first ever post started something like... To all true pilgrims...
I have only to see the word tourist and camino in the same sentence and I'm battle ready. 😈

you just go into your account and put in something else :) simple, once you have got sick enough of being a ‘new’ member to work out a few key strokes.

Does being a veteran member mean one is over a certain age???

Bwahahahahahah!! My first Sunday morning laugh! What a great way to start the day and a huge thanks for all of your responses to MacMac. I don't have a clue what my title is so I'm going to look after I post this.

Stay new my friend. Life is short. My grandmother would always tell us as kids "youth is short, but adulthood is very long, enjoy your youth". Enjoy the walk, and buen Camino.
