    I believe that the title "Self Declared Off-Topic King" would be quite fitting...or "Poster of Tool Lyrics" would work as well.

     

    Proof that such a title is warrented:

    Poster of Tool Lyrics:

    http://mmorpg.com/discussion2.cfm/thread/146355

    Every Single thread in which I have posted Tool lyrics...I couldn't possibly find them all

    Self Declared King:

    http://mmorpg.com/discussion2.cfm/thread/128468

    http://mmorpg.com/discussion2.cfm/thread/127706

    http://mmorpg.com/discussion2.cfm/thread/127570

    Your argument is like a two legged dog with an eating disorder...weak and unbalanced.

    Titles are not based on volume of posts; titles are based on content.  A user could sign up and have one post that just happens to be massively useful, and get a title for it :)

    This is a great, great idea!  My only question is why titles seem to only be given to guidemakers?  There are a few other things people could get titles for.

    The program is still fairly new, and we totally have plans to expand and include other ways to earn titles.  In fact, if you have any ideas, I implore you to share with me! :) community@mmorpg.com

    I think you should do away with titles assigned by admins altogether. They smack of a "teacher's pet" stamp. Making a few people unique amongst thousands is a wonderful way to drive a wedge between a community.

    Yeah I have to totally agree with you mate,its blatant favoritism and certainly will make some people feel inferior or less important to mmorpg.com than others. And your right its meant to be a community  not a teachers pet backslapping club.

    I must admit I'm finding myself drawn to other forums more and more this one is becoming very kiddie orientated .

    Seems like a silly way to encourage people to write guides for these forums. But I can see why you'd do it. Guides are what pulls people in these days so if you can get some quality stuff written up it pulls in more.

    How about some seniority titles while were at it though. For those of us who've been here since the debates about when WoW beta was going to start :P

    But yea, Id assume the community managed of MMORPG has some plan for this. I think stickied posts are a pretty bad way to showcase guides for games. Gamefaqs is devoid of good guides for non-asian mmorpgs if your going to encourge guide writting make a seperate section for that, and have people submit then via a different method.

    Then perhaps reward titles for people who consistantly contribute positivly to discussion and stuff like that.

    Sheesh, they try to implement something a little different and all the naysayers pop out of the woodwork.  Whats the big deal?

    Anyways, nice idea Taera, keep up the good work.

    I think  some way of letting other community members vote or choose who gets titles would probably be the fairest way to do this if it is going to have any significant impact . After all it is a community at heart and allowing people to have a say in who gets recognition would be good.

     I do not see anything from Aeria here.  they have a lot for really great games.  My hubby like PT and Shayia.  PT is like a community racing game.  Shayia is a mmorpg game.  My favorite is 12 sky tho.  u can was between the factions and hold guild wars if u like. u can find rare things to use or sale. there are lots of quests too but u can lvl w/o them if u cant do a certain one.  its really great. if anyone decides to join 12 sky i can contact me for noob questions. my IGN is kentspet and ill b happy to give u the nickel tour
