Ah, that song reminds me of Mozart's Fingernails on Chalkboard...

As for being a mod, meh. Being an admin would be more fun. Finally being able to smite spambots would be so rewarding...

1) There may or may not be a rumor that eating mangoes until you turn purple and explode might increase your chances of getting a custom title.

2) All those who enter that saloon must dance the Fancy Dance.

I'm getting there.

I've also had a few cool ideas for custom titles which will probably never be mine:

Everyone wants to be a mod. Who doesn't want to have greater responsibility and be forced to toe the party line, all without being paid?

That reminded me of the election pictures :)

Also, somebody link the usual mango picture. I can't find it anywhere.

That is not the USUAL mango picture. You'd best change it before the oldbies get cranky.

I swear I've seen this one somewhere on Spidweb, but I can't remember where.

And I had to go through 10,900 Google Image results for "mangoes", so gimme a break.

—Alorael, who needs to clarify a misconception again. Unless you are SMoE or an admin, you do not get to pick a title. On Spiderweb, title picks you! Actually, sometimes an admin picks a title for you, but that's not as catchy.

Wasn't there something with Kel's original title?

Some questions I should have asked a while ago:

1)At what time does somebody get to pick out their custom title?
2)I'll never qualify, but how do you become a moderator?

Thanksss in advance.

To get a custome title:
1. Get an admin drunk.
2. Impress him in a way that would break the CoC. (See custom titles of members 66 and 67 for an example.)

To become a moderator:
1. Kill the moderator you want to replace.
2. Bribe a current mod into sponsoring your candidacy.
3. Bribe all remaining mods of the sub-forum you want to moderate into agreeing to support your candidacy.
4. Bribe every other member of the moderating staff into not opposing your candidacy.

A slightly more serious reply:
1) If you ask, as you've just did, you'll never get one.
2) See above.

PS See Imban's post on page 1 for real answers.

Actually, a custom title doesn't really fascinate me, I just wondered whether people would actually pick something random. I've seen a lot of random custom titles.

They're not random. They make perfect sense... to the admin that handed it out. :P

I take offense at that. The titles make perfect sense. You just need to know what they come from. And sometimes the inside joke that ties that to the person.

They really do make sense. They just generally aren't explained, even to the people who receive them, and many people are too lazy to do much thinking on their own.

Don't mind me, I'm just in a spat of a mood...

Stareye's titles are funny and cool. Drakey's are hit-or-miss.

Me, I didn't kill anyone either. I just persuaded Thuryl that he didn't need the position any longer. I can be persuasive. :ph34r:

Edit: Not that way. <_<

What do you mean, not that way? Of course that way. How else do you explain "Man of the People"?

I think he's trying to claim that he didn't seduce Thuryl. Does Nikki know you're cheating on him, Aran?

Just for fun, I think Stareye should give Drakey a title. Maybe something like Tango With My Mango.

Aran is as frigid as a Cryoa chasing a snowflake. Especially when it comes to me. For him to have cheated on me with the dream-boat that is Thuryl, we'd have to be dating.

Plus, it is Thuryl... I mean, Aran's only human.

:P

It's more to do with the fact that he knows everything about Imban.
