Those were the post count titles, when you post for a certain number of times, you reach the threshold for the next title. All forums have them. I picked them almost at random expecting we'd get some ideas from the community or Kim would come up with a set, I had to have something to get the software working. Back then, Kim didn't come up with anything different and the community didn't really put forward any ideas. I think eventually, they became accepted and changing them didn't make sense any longer.
In some cases, "tractor expert" or "tractor guru" may reflect that those people have helped literally 1000s of users with tractor questions. Guru is an odd word for this site and really comes from my former computer career where the best software folks are always "gurus". So I just applied it to tractors too.
The only case where it is useful, is "New User". When you see that, you have to make sure that the post is not a trolling or spam post. Guest is the final title and it means the person is concerned to have a password cookie put on their computer. We kept that because back in the day, people thought cookies were some sort virus (indeed, in the 90s, Internet explorer used to have bugs that made cookies dangerous for Microsoft users, but those days are long gone). Nowadays people mostly post as guest by accident.
