I'm bored to fucking tears with seeing "Senior Member" below my name, on other boards that use this system you can create your own. Change it so we can as well, plz.

Or just use a bigger hierarchy.
And there could be the title "Spammer" too.

I know this is gonna sound stupid, but then again, most things I say are:

Maybe the mods can decide which users can change their titles. It works opposite of the way a post count would. The stupid people who post a lot for no reason would not get a custom title.

JohnnyNemesis
09-21-2005, 03:23 PM
EVERYONE should get to choose their own custom titles. That's how other boards work, and they work fine.

They also get people to realize that the "status" thing means nothing, since there IS no status if people can change their user titles.

Put that way, it sounds like a great idea. Less spam to achieve a higer post count, and "senior member" status.

Is it that important? I mean now this opens up to people abusing the system like having their title as inapropriate words and shit. But it would be kinda neat I guess?

People put inapropriate words in their usernames, posts, and locations anyway. If people can deal with that, they can deal with user titles.

I'd never really payed attention to any of this. Why are there so many people making a big deal about having a big post count and 'achieving senior status"? I don't know, but it just sounds exteremy pointless.

Senior status is only 100 posts, come fucking on, if you spam just to get senior status..your fucking sad. Quality of posts is what matters, not the number.

Try telling that to the spammers. If there are custom titles, maybe it'll stop some people from posting ridiculous amounts on their first day.

I generally agree. Conversations would end up like:
Member 1: "I'm king of the BBS!"
Member 2: "Well I'm extreme dictator of the BBS!"
Member 1: "Oh yeah? Well, now I'm overlord of all that is the BBS!"
Member 2: "Now I'm the dictator for life of the BBS. BOW BEFORE ME, INFADEL!!!1"

I don't think mods should have to approve titles. I've seen forums where people give themselves titles, and it works fine. If people want to one-up each other with titles or put in obscene words, that's not really a big problem.

JohnnyNemesis
09-22-2005, 10:00 PM
Mods making or approving titles is a horrible idea.

Betty
09-22-2005, 10:10 PM
I don't think either way is really great.

If people can do it themselves whenever, I really don't see the point, it makes the whole "title" worthless. They might as well modify their sig or location or whatever.

If mods can do it, that obviously just leads to way too much stupid BBS politics.

I PREFER the idea of mods doing it, cause that would be more fun, but I just don't think it's feasible.

I kind of agree. we ourselves shouldn't be able to make our own titles, seeing it'd probably bring the board much closer to retardation than it already is. but it'd be a good idea to have more titles & more original ones.

I have a thought, though it's probably pointless. People put stuff under "occupation", right? Why don't we just replace that with "user title"? If you leave it blank, it says "Senior Member", etc.

Hmm, this idea sounded much better in my head.

0r4ng3
09-23-2005, 08:09 PM
Could work. If you don't mind seeing 'sk8er' under 100 or so usernames.
Better than seeing "Senior Member" under 1000 or so usernames. User titles aren't that important, anyway. If you don't like it, it's easy to ignore, like someone's location.

St. Jimmy
09-23-2005, 08:10 PM

In a very diplomatic way, I told him that if he didn't want sympathy, he shouldn't mention the fact that he's a mangled cripple in the first sentence of every post. He, however, freaked out. And the entire board thought I was an asshole.

So I was a bit bitchy to him and he posted the whole convo on the board because he was so wounded.

On the old Pumpkins board the moderators could change user titles for people. You could only change like once a week, though. And the titles were like "moderator/customtitle" and "user/customtitle", so it was still obvious who was a mod or an admin.

On a board I go to we have some weird "user description" that relates to your post-count.. Like if you have 3 posts, it's something like "starting out" or something. Above it, you write your own little text, like "I luv my bf <3 <3" and under it, it says "starting out" and under that, the post count.
