Journeyman was the 2nd rank on the LEGO Message Boards, and took only 49 posts to achieve. During the years before the update, Journeymen did not have studs. However, they had studs in 2006, when there were fewer LEGO Message Boards users. There are not many active users with this rank, because many quit during the Apprentice phase, or they quickly got to the next rank, Initiate, which required 96 posts. Former Journeymen now have badges on their profile pages to signify their old rank.
