What does the group title fng's mean... I don't understand it... could a staff or someone enlighten me on these different group titles? What limitations do i have because I am on that group... and I just joined Tuesday, October 15, 2013... possibly Wednesday, October 16, 2013? And why was I put on it?

FNG: F***'n new guy...
It's a probationary rank. Theirs a set of unreleased secret criteria to be met before an FNG is promoted to a member rank. I don't know it, but it I'm guessing it probably centers around post count and post quality. Probably includes some other stuff as well though. It precludes you from accessing the trading section, and also limits the number of posts you can make each day.

I guess you can either view it as a control measure to avoid the flood of ignorance that comes with a large batch of verified accounts.


You're off to a good start though. You seem to grasp the purposes of the shift key, grammar and punctuation.

The group was designed to allow newer members to "learn the ropes" before becoming fully-fledged members. It usually takes a few months to achieve full membership; in that time you're limited to two posts a day, and you can't use the trading forum.

I could be wrong, but I believe the more active you are the faster you become full member.

Aside from speculation about the criteria these guys are mostly correct. You should also be able to see an explanation of these groups on the main page of you are in one of them.
