Custom Titles

Post by THX1138 » Mon Jul 11, 2016 11:32 am

As per the Wile-E-Coyote cartoon in which Mr. Coyote shows his business card ( Wile-E Coyote, super genius ) and at the end of which states ( My name is mud )
I ask for the (my name is mud) to be used under my avatar rather than (science officer)
I'm told that these are chosen at the whims of the administrator, I cannot choose one myself

And so what does the administrator do ? Places ( Emailed Bob, got a new title ) under my avatar
Thanks geekzilla, that's what one should expect from an administrator, good job. :shock:
I've come to the conclusion that when i said i wanted to be somebody when i grew up i probably should have been more specific

Careful mud, you're not allowed to discuss the whims -- er, I mean, decisions -- of the admins in the forum. If you do that, your name will be Mud.

It's true. I even PM'ed you about it. If you could change it yourself, there'd be an option in your profile.
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.

Did you notice that all members with custom titles all have over 500 posts? It's a privilege (???) you haven't earned.

alive to the gentle breeze of communication, and please stop being such a jerk.

That's not true. There are some people I've had memorable interactions with that I've put various titles on. As Rob so dutifully notes, this one is actually a whim.
