I meant to mention this some time ago, but forgot. I was wondering if I could get the special title of Arch-Mage instead of explorer? I'd change my name from Arch-Mage Solberg to Solberg! :cool:

Just figured I'd ask! :)

You have to become an upstanding, staple member of the community before the moderators or administrators will grace you with an honorary, custom title. Not to say you are not one already. :rolleyes:

After all, you are member #303.

I think the rule is that if you ask, you don't get one. But it's not a bad idea and shortens your name. No harm in trying.

Another nice thing about the Today's Active Topics section. Even though Little Billy Sue's post was eaten by the UBB, it was still visible from the Active Topics.

EDIT: Great. His post appeared, and now I look like a complete idiot.

EDIT 2: If I had to choose a custom title... Well, I wouldn't. Right now, I'm perfectly content with Adventurer.

I feel old! How many of you see someone with a member # before 500 still post? :confused: I can only think of 2 besides me! :( :cool:

See!!! I'm part of a dying breed! :( I'm also the only non-mod on the list.

Oh, you forgot Slarty and Alorael! ;) :cool:

-EDIT- 7 out of 500!

First, TM and Mysterious Man are not Moderators. They're just well-known members.

Second, Spidweb, Drakefyre, and *i are administrators, not moderators. Very big difference.

EDIT: Typo.

Generally, asking for a custom title is a good way to make sure you'll never get one, unless you privately ask Drakey for something insulting. (Rumor has it that's how Motrax got his title.)

1. Almost all moderators (Drakefyre, Stareye, Brett, Schrodinger, Saunders (she lost original account but still posts with a couple others), Khoth, Alorael, Imban, The Creator (although he uses new account now, and I know that they are two people, but I think Ash was the one who registered original account))

2. People who used to be mods at iconboard (MM, TM (when he isn't banned), some others show up once in a few years)

3. a bunch of other random people, some of whom use different accounts now

So there's more of us out there huh? :confused: I guess I'm not that special after all! :( :cool:

Everyone is special one way or another. If you can't figure out how you're special you probably don't want to know, of course.

—Alorael, who believes SMoE asked *i nicely and privately while Drakey was away and got exactly what he asked for. There are several lessons in this: titles were easier to come by in the good old days, *i's evil is growing, and the same trick never works twice.

Read it more carefully, Nemesis. TM was a moderator. All you haver to fear from him now is getting verbally accosted when you least expect it.

Because I'm bored, here's a list of members up to #500 who still post (with a few exceptions):

Spidweb
TM (banned but around)
MM (occasionally)
*i
Drakey
Saunders (occasionally)
Alec (now temporarily banned and apparently permanently gone)
Sullust (occasionally)
Archmage Alex (ocasionally)
Alex (ocasionally)
Khoth
Imban (looming frighteningly)
Ash
Luz (ocasionally)
VCH
Slarty
Solberg

With yours truly, that's only 18, or 3.6%. That's not much, but it's more than my estimate of the ratio of total (sporadically) active members to members.

—Alorael, who concludes that being or having been a mod or admin is good for duration of stay. It's also surprisingly likely to get you banned. Go figure.

Hey, I post here very occasionally. Like now, for instance.

Don't worry, Nemesis. No matter how careful you are, he'll come up with something.

The main thing you should remember is that, while he can be vulgar and flammable, he is a decent and reasonable person. He should be respected.

It should be also kept in mind that he still occasionally can get messages through to the boards, via other members. I have seen two such examples, one about Emperor Tullegolar, and another to Emperor Tullegolar.

Am I the only one cringing becaus of this.

The name carries infamy here. You may want to reconsider shortening to the same name. (You also may not be able to.)

So that is what the Solberg Incident was! Someone about 3 years ago asked if I was the one involved in the incident. I told him that I had no idea what he was talking about. And that's the first (and last, until now) I heard about that. About the name, maybe just Solberg is not good. I'll have to think on it. :cool:

-EDIT- Who'd have thought that my name changing post would revive a list of pre-#501 members!
