As a supporter, you actually have junior member as a usergroup BUT since only one usergroup can show (like I have junior member, moderator, senior member, etc. but only only "administrator" shows) and supporter is a higher usergroup.
Since you are now a "supporter" you no longer need to reach the 150 post count to download attachments. Sometimes this change in usergroup does not happen immediately so there may be a delay of a day to download the attachments.
If you would like, I can manually remove the supporter badge and just have it show junior member but not sure why you would want that since you should be proud to show that you are a supporter of the site.

I became a supporter so I could respond to posts quicker and be able to share files, but it still says "Because you're new...." whenever I post something! I'm not new!! Can we relax the forum post count number a bit, or at least for us supporters please?? The 150 requirement almost encourages spamming doesn't it?? And the quote below is misleading...
"To reach "junior member" status you need to have a minimum of 150 posts.
- or -
You can by-pass the post count by purchasing a Site Supporter membership.
To Purchase a Supporter Membership to download attachment in lieu of the post count requirement please follow these instructions."
I thought by becoming a supporter I would also become a junior member. If you read the above quote, it is easy to understand why I might have come to this conclusion! Please let me know if there is anything you can do about letting me finally attain junior member status, so I can be more active in the boards.
