aka Titles :mrgreen:

I've been experimenting a little and changed my rank to "B77 Bene Gesserit" (I never liked the "admin" label... too authoritarian :Q ). Looks like we can implement new titles that we access by postcount, so how about starting a discussion to see what titles/ranks people would like? :) There's also an image function, that is, a little symbol that goes with each rank, so we should be able to have stars, shields, rings or whatever we like...

We can also have custom titles, so if anyone's got their heart set on having one, please post here and I or other admin will change it for you when we have a minute. :D

I'm not interested in ranking and post count symbols and the like. But I would love to have my "Troubadour of Ithilien" title, if it's at all possible? :smile:

I like postcount symbols. They're cute. :)

:LMAO: you two!

Anyone who wants their own title can PM me or any of the other .. . caretakers? Guys who have to twiddle the buttons? Admin ... ? and we can add it.

( I don't like post count thingies either :D )

Personally don't care about the status symbols.
The titles are ok though.
Can't think of one though. :scratch

I think Farawen should be stripped of her title though. :mrgreen:

Titles on request, whatever silly thing we want...oh yes.

Post count rankings--never cared that much before. Or now.

Post count graphics--as above.

I rather like post count symbols and titles, but it's just as well without them. :)

And I don't have a personal title, so nothing to add here, too.

Hmmh, I agree "site admin" looks a bit authoritarian, but on the other hand it's nice to know who IS an admin - will be difficult to keep track with the rotations. ;)
Maybe it's possible to give the admins' title a different layout or something?
Like in the member list, where they appear yellow.

Don't know, just some thoughts.

Does this mean that Lidless is the Kwisatch Haderach?

:devil:

Titles are cool. Anything conveying rank does not matter to me. If it's there, fine; if not, also fine.

Ohh Titles!...

Don't much care for the postcount titles, or the date when joined. In the long term these can appear like "badges" and I find that thought a bit elitist.

Could I be the Red Fox again?

Does it have to be in black text?

(So can you can have any font you like as long as it is black? To paraphrase that god of socialist capitalism Henry Ford :mrgreen: )

The date joined and postcount might feel elitist but it's an important piece of information. Even if we never have symbols, that info should stay.
