Why not hide everything? Then everyone would have to read each post to examine it for quality. We would finally have a fair system, where everyone has an equal voice! There would be no more elitism, no more ignoring people just because of their member number!

Oh, wait. That sucks.

Uh, you just described democracy, the system that created the most powerful country in the world.

Oh please. The United States is as "fair and balance" as the Fox News network. :P

Spoken by someone with a low post count. Here at Spiderweb Boards we don't hold to the notion if you don't have something nice to say than don't say anything. If that was true, then TM wouldn't have such a high count.

Democracy isn't even close to perfect, but it sure as hell is better than most other systems.

Dear Randomizer, if you had the slightest clue as to who I am, you would know that I have well over 1000 more posts than you do. I've been using an old computer that is still logged in with this old account, but if you're really interested, I'll tell you my other account.

Sorry MM*, it's the multiple accounts that confuse me. I have enough trouble with the changing PDNs. I've gotten to the point of using member numbers, titles, and signatures to ID people. When you use a different account I don't recognize you as well.

I don't usually look at profiles. I see your other account now. Did you ever get your beer?

Since my last post seems to have been ignored by those who know the answer, I shall ask it again. How do I get a custom title? :confused:

An admin gives it to you. Asking for one is a good way to make sure the admins never like you enough to give you one.

I think Drakey said it best when he said something like "It's not because you ask that we don't give you one. If you have to ask, you probably don't deserve one."

Yes, but putting it that way doesn't produce the desired effect, namely, stopping them from bloody well pestering us every five minutes for a title.

By sacrificing your dearest hopes to the dark gods of the gloomy pit.

By contemplating the mystery that is the Trinity of Postification.

By feeding your sanity drop by drop to the Fluffy Turtles of the bucket at the door.

By amusing Drake the Pirate or annoying *i the Mighty.

There is a wide variety of methods, depending on the custom title you are aiming for:

1. The fastest way to get a custom title is to post some porn, or a link to a warez site. This will get you the title "BANNED", the most common custom title on these boards.

2. If you want to put a little more effort into it, you can post several pointless polls in a row, resurrect a bunch of old threads with irrelevant posts, and generally spam up the boards to get the title "Canned". This title is quite rare, because its holders often get upgraded to BANNED title.

3. You could become one of the best BoE scenario designers, making a couple scenarios that match or surpass Avernum 3 in size and quality, or making a bunch of smaller, good scenarios, and developing some techniques that become widely used. That will give you the title "BoE Posse".

4. You could make a webpage containing a complete set of maps for one of Spidweb games, marking locations of every NPC, important items, etc. This will give you the title "Cartographer".

5. You could make a set of FAQs, containing complete walkthroughs for most Spidweb game. That might give you custom title "FAQSELF".

6. If none of the above look appealing or feasible, you could just be very active for a while and catch Drakey's eye when he is bored. This will get you a humorous custom title you might not like. (The holder of "White Rabbit" custom title was so unhappy that he managed to bribe *i (or Drakey himself?) into changing it. :P ) Note that by "active" I don't mean "posting as much as you can". In fact, posting too much is the best way to make sure you don't get any title (Alorael is a good example). Just be yourself, and you will get a title in a few years.

EDIT: Added :P to clarify that the bribery bit was a joke.

Ah, Kel. I didn't know he'd sunk to that depth.

Fine and dandy for Aussieavernum, but how do Iget a custom title? And I've tried Canned but prefer bottled.

You could always try reverse psychology and see how far that gets you...

Dikiyoba wonders what gives people their sense of entitlement to a title in the first place.

My motivation is avaricous lust. Same reason why I long for my neighbor's wife.

The ways Zeviz correctly listed.

But it will make them concentrate on trying to earn one, rather than asking for one. :P

Sorry for change the actual subject, but this is an excellent example of how we can go off-topic in General. 1 pages only are on-topic. Just a note. I don't want to annoy, remember. Maybe this is because I created an useless topic? :)

Well, it's because we've answered the question, and have to move on to other topics in order to ensure this thread's survival. There aren't a huge number of recent threads at the moment, so we have to work with what we have.

Not quite, there are many recent topics, just none that haven't had their questions answered.

Ah, legitimacy, takes half the pleasure out of accomplishing something. The grass is always greener when it isn't your own.
