Thread: User Titles - Suggestions Welcome

  1. #1

    Default User Titles - Suggestions Welcome

    Dear All -

    The forum software we're using allows for the traditional setting of custom user titles depending on the number of posts a user has made. Currently they're set to the rather boring default options, but we should probably do something about that.

    Please feel free to make suggestions as to a workable (and safe-for-work!) framework - the number of posts and the associated titles - below. The best suggestions will be incorporated into the new framework, to be applied as and when your friendly, neighbourhood Forum Admin gets around to it...

    Thank You and have a pleasant day.

    I'd like to suggest ship names or classes. But that may alienate the non"M"ers. So how about Iain's books through in order? ie:

    1-50 posts "The Wasp Factory"
    50 -100 posts "Walking on Glass"
    101 - 250 posts "The Bridge"
    251 - 500 posts "Consider Plebas"

    All the way upto "Matter" for 10,000 +
    "Just have fun"

    Although being stuck on 'Canal Dreams' for a thousand posts may be seen as a punishment.

    Could we start with 'Casual Spammer', work through 'Vaguely Interested In Two Novels' and 'Desperate For Someone To Write My Essay' and finish on 'No Social Life/Lax Corporate Firewall'?

    Or just do away with showing the post count altogether?

    Ship classes is a good one
    Also something like human, involved, drone, mind, sublimed...

    I like the freedom of picking your own.

    Do away with post counts? Surely that's a major part of the Interwebs e-peni scheme?

    Can't there be a set of names & the ability to pick your own if you want?

    I reckon so. It's the standard set of user titles we're looking to change. If a member wants to give themselves their own title it'll over-ride the default option. As far as I know, anyhow...
