I don't think it's fair for me or any moderator to tell you all what ideas are "good" and what are "bad"
Yay! Another use for all the bots used to vote up/down games like Guild Wars and EVE. I'm sure the people who made the 500,000 something trash accounts will be excited to hear that they can now "mod up" their own posts, and, in doing so, make them seem more "important" than the everyday forumgoers.

If you really want to look at it like then. Just think about the entire forum title system. What makes my idea any different from the current idea used now? You get a title based of a sticky, now how does a thread become a sticky?
Sorry but I just don't see how your logic can apply to me alone here. You should be quoting the original post then and complaining that the system fails like that. But honestly anyone can do that on any forum and there's really no way to stop it. So like my old gym coach used to say. "don't whine if you can't fix it"
Posts are stickied/given titles based on the helpfulness and positive impact that they provide to the community. While some people might write guides just for the purpose of obtaining a title - they're still helping the community and providing great information. I'll think about a way to integrate this in the Dev Corner

The new titles will not disappear or decay unless your posts are found to be plagerized.

I really wonder what kind of titles will hard line veterans like Zorvan or myself get ?
I would be open for a title like Bane of dishonest developers
But i know Laura holds little love for my honest ways ... so it will probably be a title with Troll in it ?
First of all I love this idea, however; you sir are not a Veteran of this community. Post counts do not qualify as a veteran here. I been a member since this site launched and this is my 2nd account after I moved and lost my first account years ago. I think this one is 4yrs old now.
The real veterans are old hands here who might not have high post counts but do follow the site and progressions and have some good posts.
For a Veteran here I would say no younger then 2yrs or maybe 3. Lets see if they have a Vet title, that would be nice.
EDIT Because I think some cool titles would be...............

Oooh, I love the idea of techie titles!

Staff members all have the bright blue forum posts
True, but the term "guide" is used in MMORPGs as a term to refer to volunteer, mini-GM-like helpers. Some may not be familiar with the blue color patch and/or may assume that "guide" suggests the same thing here.
Not that anything other than a little confusion could come of it, and I'm not saying that it doesn't make sense considering what it's awarded for. I agree with / see where Vendayn is coming from though.
edit: your forum didn't save my paragraphs. :-P Let's try again..
I probably don't follow the threads that I post in. If you want me to see a response then feel free to PM me.
This sounds interesting. Who doesn't like distinguishing themselves from other posters? I mean, we all know being famous on a forum is better than being famous IRL. Then again...most of us spend more time on these forums than we do IRL...so this is actually true.
i am still waiting for my banning :P yay for me!
You know the more and more I look at it. The more and more I'm trying to figure out this problem I'm having. That is how come www.mmorpg.com and www.guildcafe.com don't team up together. Each offers a unique set of features for the players and both are centered towards mmorpg. Granted guild cafe does have fps's and offline options as well but its mainly used for mmorpgs.
So maybe a Big glowy can help me out here. What would it take to get you two to partner up somehow? or help each other out? Like what I mean is Guildcafe has these 3 different quiz's you can take right? They help you figure out your own mmorpg play style as well as your own guild role. They have these pie charts showing game activity and all these nice features. For example look at my profile http://www.guildcafe.com/member/Ebena
Then just look at some of the stuff I've filled. Look at some of the awards I have credited towards my name. Make no mistake I'm not asking for you two to merge but I am wondering how come you two don't link toward each other.
Meh sorry for the rant. This title system kept me thinking about guild cafe.
Many thanks for title recognition. I put a lot of time into my writings here, and I hopefully will be able to spend more time adding to my work here in the future.

So, bring on the Veteran titles!!

Yeah it would be nice.
Sometimes, generic titles just aren't thanks enough for the work our users put in. Submit enough guides and you might find yourself with the oppertunity to design a custom title (approval by Communty Manager required)!

Well thats Neat! Neato Tostito!
Hi! My name is paper. Nerf scissors, rock is fine.MMORPG = Mostly Men Online Roleplaying Girlshttp://www.MichaelLuckhardt.com
Can I have a title for asking for one?
Qaze - Atheist, Nihilist, Sadist.WinRAR.rarMudkip Video
Xfire= Qaze3000 - Add me if you're not a total retard.
I don't much care for this idea.
Originally posted by ianubisi I don't much care for this idea.
I dont care for it much either, sort of segregates the the thousands of casual poster's , after all its the the casual poster's that keep sites like this going'
ooh.. I got one, Forum Troll? huh? huh? no?... It fits.
And since when was Praetoriani not a Mod?
It would be sweet to have titles that aren't as "formal" as the ones listed. For example Rikimaru_X could get the title "Ninja Running From Squirrels" or "Chased by Squirrels" or something. See this to understand the title.
"Former MMO Developer"
That's what I want. Make it happen.
Lead Gameplay and Gameworld Designer for a yet unnamed MMO Title."When people tell me designing a game is easy, I try to get them to design a board game. Most people don't last 5 minutes, the rest rarely last more then a day. The final few realize it's neither fun nor easy."
Surely I should get one after all these years, and so little spam!!

You get the title "Where is my keyboard!?"
