How do the shields below the avatars work

Post by Squigy » 05 Nov 2009, 01:01

I've been using this site for about 5 months, and have seen little shields below (well above actually) avatars ranking Newbie-Rookie-Veteran-Elite-Master. How do you gain shields? Just curious.

I figured it was something like that. How many post does it take to reach each level? Or is that meant to be private.
