We added a new feature that I think many of you will begin to enjoy, it's called User Level's. You earn points for doing just about anything on TheWrestlingTalk.com, much like any role playing game (ala World of Warcraft, etc)...

Eventually we will be giving away t-shirts and other prizes to people who reach a certain User Level (not decided yet)... More information to come as I have time to write a more detailed explanation of the addition. Feel free to play around and offer up any suggestions you would like to see.
