Display names & custom titles
« on: November 09, 2010, 08:28:41 PM »
Forum users can no longer change their display name. (The name that appears to everyone when you post.) It's too confusing to keep track of who is who when people rename themselves all the time.

If you want your name changed for a valid reason, please PM me (not the mods) and I can change it for you.

If you've changed your name since you signed up, your new name is still active. You just can't modify it yourself anymore.



In addition, once you reach 1000 posts (Commander), you can set a "custom title" for yourself that will appear under your name, in addition to your rank. This is just a small reward for those of you who've been here a while and contributed a lot. :)

You should be able to see this field above the box where you edit your signature. If you have 1000+ posts and can't see it, let me know!

That's a nice addition. Finally I can know who's who.


Drake is flamboyant, and may go over the top, but if he were not that extrovert then who would move things along?

Yeah, I don't know if the forum software finally added that option, or if I was just blind before... but I found it today! :)

Oh thank the maker!!!
The  purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in
defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more
important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.

Drake and I agreed on something. Somebody get the camera out to capture the moment.

Good idea on freezing all the confusingly frequent name-changing, Amy.  The custom title option's a nice addition, too.

You gotta be a Commander, Vod. You're still at Major.  :P

The custom title thing's a cool add.  I still have a ways to go, tho....
"To say nothing is true, is to realize that the foundations of society are fragile and that we must be the shepherds of our own civilization. To say everything is permitted, is to understand that we are the architects of our actions, and that we must live with their consequences, whether glorious or tragic."
