Not sure his chances existed in any meaningful quantity anyway. Your best chances of obtaining a custom title may be to start your own message boards. I know a few folks that have done it that way. And bribery should still work.

Nalyd will never have a custom title, no matter how long he stays here. He will also never be noted for anything. Hooray, uselessness.

I'm surprised Synergy doesn't have a custom title.

I feel that custom titles should be more stringent, no more then one new/changed custom title per annum, revoke many, do not allow moderators to have custom titles based on their modships, reformations to prevent bribery/eliminating titles that were bribed into existence, and generally force people to sell their lives to Spiderweb to get a costum title.

It would be cool if I had "Muffiny Goodness" or "The Iffy One".
But, if I even get one, it would probably be something like "Guy with horrible gimmick".

I mean besides "Canned".
And I'm still wondering why Canned followed after my unbanning, while Nija (I know you don't like to be called that, but I no of nothing else to call you) did not.

If you don't even understand why you have Canned title, your chances of losing it are pretty low.

Trust me, custom titles aren't all they're cracked up to be.

That said, can someone give me a custom title please?

Precisely. Make everyone equal by lowering them to the lowest denominator.

Thus ruining the incentive. Really though, what would be the point in posting within the CoC? The funny thing about systems that exist for a while is that they usually work quite well without the shortsighted input of peripheral visitors.

Iffy, the reason you are "Canned" has been explained to you repeatedly, at least once by me.

Ick. Part of me wants Nalyd to get a custom title just so he can't whine about getting one.

And Iffy - you have the title "Canned" still because the Admin wish to stuff you in a tight little metal container, so that they can keep all your amazing-ness to themselves.

Sometimes I'd like a custom title, but if I can't have one, I could easily live without it. I'm just here more for the fun of it, not to have a flashy title.

Either I'm crazy, or everybody else is nuts. And I know I'm not crazy because the little man who lives on my shoulder told me so.

Slarty, I don't remember you explaining why I have it. Then again I have a terrible memory.

I have probably already explained the situation in which I got banned, but I will explain it again.

I had remembered seeing recent threads that told of a site they though were illegal or something. Though none of them were. So I got an idea of searching for one so that I could help Spiderweb Software by reporting it. I found one, and I did report it...but I did it in a stupid way. I posted it in General. Which is why I got banned. And my brother told me that the way I posted it made people misinterpret it.
...

Back on topic, umm I wonder what title Nalyd would get if he did get a custom title.

Originally written by me, 16 days ago, in the topic that Iffy started ("Canned") to ask the same question he asks here:

Canning (note the second 'n', muffin) is a warning status. It warns you that your behavior is one step away from a ban. It is only going to go away if your behavior changes.

I haven't been paying much attention lately, so I don't know what your behavior has been like recently. I know that it was pretty atrocious when you first showed up, and then (even before the ban) it got a lot better -- for which I validate you heartily! -- but it still needed improvement. If you really have ceased answering questions you aren't qualified to answer (especially in tech support), making pointless posts (and worse, pointless topics), and overreacting to simple comments made by others in ways that tend to fan flames, then (and only then) I would encourage you to politely PM a mod to ask about it.

Iffy, I really hope you figure out what parts of your posting habits have given you the custom title of "Canned." You seem sincere in your desire to lose that title, so just know that most of us here, for your sake and our sakes, are rooting for your success.

I think he only got Canned after his Banned. Because he displayed an open link to a CcoughRcoughAcoughCcoughK

It's true that his canning came after his banning, but the reasons for his banning and canning weren't the same. Canning is a warning that your behavior isn't acceptable and you could wind up with a ban if you don't get better. You don't need to be canned to be told you shouldn't keep posting cracks, you just get permabanned if you try it.
