I just had a sudden burst of stupidity: why not give Alorael the custom title of "Postaroni, Pizzabella!" - that way he can no longer complain that he has no custom title. It's not like he is going to take that long before he earns the title the regular way. As an added bonus, it'll confuse newbies who don't know (and/or don't lookup) who the moderators are.

Maybe you know why some slith eyes were once red - ´cause the demons, which led them were red.

But why are the eyes of the Slith Lord Followers red? Because they see the remains of their enemies always before the battle begins!

You are all aware that you are presently discussing giving an amusing custom title to someone on a board where this someone is a moderator, are you?

Blademaster is the title given to mods on forums that they moderate. Everywhere else they get their regular post title. Custom titles take precedent for mods who have them.

Seletine and I were the only non-custom title mods for a while, but Kel rejected his and went back to the Blademaster racket.

As a newbie, I'm curious, what was Kel's custom title before he rejected it?

I think that can be filed under "unpleasantness", although I suppose that depends on where these bullets choose to lodge themselves...

That's the ticket. To be fair, it wasn't that bad...

And didn't Alorael threaten terrible things before he reached 10k? Or another number around that ballpark?

Idle threats. Idle threats.

Alo will become Postaroni, Pizzabella! when he hits 12,500.

And Kel totally hated his title for some reason.

What I am always trying to figure out is what inspires each custom title. Why was Kel "White Rabbit", for instance...a love of surrealist literature? Always late for an important date? Which reminds me—why is Aran a "Very Important Date"? Meanwhile, does Kel really like "Frolicking In Postland" any better? White Rabbit had more dignity and mystique, if you ask me.

Not that any of this is keeping me awake at night, but it all gets curiouser and curiouser as I get more thinkier and thinkier.

As far as I can tell, Drakey has given up on the idea that custom titles ought to have anything to do with the person to whom they are given, and he has settled on the idea that they ought to be inside jokes with himself.

I'm glad I got my custom title back when they were relevant, then.

Maybe.

And I'm still curious as to how you can reject a custom title. Do you need to be a moderator, or did one of the admins get a bribe? How high was the bribe?

*i works in mysterious ways.

—Alorael, who threatened consequences if he did not get a custom title by 10,000. He didn't get it, and so he decided that every day he would pick a new name, and every morning he would have it beheaded. He's still waiting for the name that can keep him entertained with half a story.

I'm not quite sure I get it. There must be around ten people with custom titles. Isn't it an honor any which way?

They (with the custom titles - or to be more precise, Aran) say that you only get a title when you realise it means nothing.

Make of it what you will.
