I've been on Air Forums for a while and still confused about a few things. What is a Rivet Member and how does one get rivets?

Rivet "status" is achieved by posting to the forums--sort of a way to recognize active participants. So, the more you post, the more rivets you get, topping out at 5, I believe.

The reason you don't see your rivet count is that you entered the value "2NCan" in the "Custom user title" field under "Edit Your Details" in the user control panel. That overrides the default rivet count. You should be able to see what your rivet count is on that same page, and if you want to show it, just check the reset box and save changes.

From our Forums 101 thread -- more on the rivet story:

You also saw some gold rivets around Janet's username & avatar area in these posts I linked -- those come from making a $20 annual donation as noted here. Full forum participation is welcome with or without this donation. We sure appreciate our willing supporters though.
