Default Re: Custom user titles are gone

Can't it be set so that people fill in whatever they want, so that everyone gets a custom title? I've seen that elsewhere.

I doubt that I'd pick anything if I could-- I never fill in my location or have a signature block, it's not my deal (actually I'm not clever enough), but isn't there a way to let people who want to have them have them without bothering admins? I think it's silly to tie them to post count because spamming isn't an accomplishment. But I really don't care.

Yeah, defo. I'd like to see that, and still have titles to aim for after 20,000 posts

Ain't too bothered - I knew it would cause more trouble than it was worth for our mods.
At least I am still a Stu - I feel more sorry for Lara who loses her 'honorary' status.

It's done....I might add more if people wanna throw ideas out.......


It takes forever for the database to update itself on this (it does 1000 users at a time) so if people want to break it up even more, suggest it here and once there's a firmer list I'll update em again

I think I only added 2 or 3 higher than the suggested titles, but I can throw some "in the middle" ones to break it up

We used to have to do that. Infopop was a shitty fucking board service (though I love and miss the control panel) and our old server just sucked.


The problem is that it's a pain in the ass to actually purge the users cause you can't just set a query easily....Oh and the last time it was done en mase, I definltely deleted Chris Shiflett...........then recreated him, but mispelled his name......it was a whole big mess


Basically, we gain next to nothing vs the time it would take Jill and I to clear it out and the risk of accidentally deleting a VIP that has an account for reading purposes is far more likely. I don't know if you've ever experienced what happens when John Silva is mad at you, but I can assure you it is not fun.

I think the next level up is only 4000 posts away.

So it'll take you like 2 weeks

Either get rid of them all altogether or let everyone pick their own. All other options are lame. And these new names are a pile of wank.
