I asked this too!

You're exactly right, the hills and mountains are called your post status and you get a higher mountain as your post count increases. This is how many posts relate to which status:
0-9 is Norfolk Broads
10-49 is Salisbury Hill
50-99 is Scafell Pike
100-249 is Snowdon
250-499 is Ben Nevis
500-999 is Mt Blanc
1000-2499 is Kilimanjaro
2500-4999 is Mt McKinley
5000-9999 is K2
10000+ is Everest


The Norfolk Broads are flat, which I assume is why they are the first stage.... and so on....

:lol:

Think Peter Gabriel released it under his own name after leaving Genesis... not 100% sure... but I had the song stuck in my head for a day or so after leaving old Norfolk - catchy tune

:D

I hope I don't find tunes for the others!!!!!

There is a song with Kilimanjaro in it. You really don't want that one stuck in your head though :devil:

Norfolk Broads is mentioned in Bowie's Life in Mars.

now i understand!!!!For more than a moment I was considering the positive effects on my nervous system of moving to the norfolk broads,that shows how desperate some of us could be.Ahhh so gone are my pictures of quiet sailing,a bit of relaxing fishing and the absence of police sirens and low flying aeroplanes mixed with the bi annual sickness benefit assesment by the benefits agency in Norwich...Manchester is just a brutal audio soundscape.
many thanks for helping me out with the apparently(with hindsight)OBVIOUS!!!

I thought that too - afterwards :lol:

What made me laugh was the thought of people who live in norfolk wondering how on earth the forum knows where they live :D

That was Solsbury Hill, not Salisbury.

Thanks for the song - always liked that one and its a great way to start my internet usage for the day :dance:

I did know the spelling was different though - we was sorta joking at the time and trying to come up with songs with the member titles in them and we sorta let the spelling slide since Peter Gabriel is weird anyway and the song is a catchy tune :D

Dunno about songs for some of the others though :wacko: I think we kinda gave up :lol:

I don't have that option in my settings.

I think you get additional perks/Easter Eggs (to keep you interested) with advancements in member title as you do have over 800 posts (i.e. Mt Blanc status).
