I'm new to cc, and LOVE it! I've been reading a lot of the posts and have found out some wonderful tips! Still too nervous to post any pictures or anything cuz there is some AMAZING work out there and I see I need to practice practice practice some more!
Anyway...I'm just wondering...what is the "newbie", "forum fanatic", "frequent member" tags under peoples names/pictures? I assume that is based on how long you've been a member, but I was just wondering...
I believe it is based on the number of posts you make on the forums.
a bigger addiction to CC as evidenced by the number of posts
(that or a "bigger mouth")

And you don't need to worry about posting your photos...just check out some of mine...we all had to start somewhere...and it gives you a photo journal of your improvement over time...I think you should post your photos (the good, bad, and ugly). There is something to learn from everyone that you do...and I guarantee...this site is very addictive if you are serious about learning about cakes.
Post, Post, Post your photos. You may not think they are "worthy" but perhaps someone else will find the design or an element inspirational.
I am totally embarrassed by mine based on what everyone on here can do but I view it as a scrapbook of progress. Hoepfully some will emerge some day...
