    Lightbulb New user titles: suggestions



    We've had a pretty good time with our current titles but now it's time to mix it up a little and add more. 100 posts is way too easy so the Gearhead title is now 1000 posts. 1000 posts shows a true dedication to the forum I believe, not just fluff.

    Above, you see all the current titles in use. They're pretty fun and give new members incentive to reach the next goal. I would like to add some new titles between 10-100 and remember they should have a slightly better connotation than the preceding title. For example, "Blowhard" has a slightly better connotation than "Oil stain."

    Now that we have people exceeding 1000 and 2000 posts, I'd like to think up some titles for folks between 1000 and 2500 posts as well. Remember, 1000 posts is the new "Gearhead" and that represents an investment. So, everything above 1000 should have a more prestigious connotation, no more joking around like in the beginning. At least that's what I'm thinking.

    So, how about you? Ideas?

    *Edit: O.G. members will have a static title so this doesn't really apply to them.

    How about,
    Spark plug
    Master cylinder (and/or slave)
    Sprocket

    I don't know, making up clean ones just ain't my thing.

    How about "gear knob" ? That's clean, right ?!c

    Re: New user titles: suggestions

    I have to bump this thread because I haven't messed with titles since the original post. We still have a huge gap between Blowhard at 75 posts to Gearhead at 1000 posts. So please keep the suggestions coming and I will get them in installed. Remember to include what post count they should be, i.e. 100 posts: SomethingOrOther 500 posts: SomethingElse 750 posts: EvenSomethingElse

    I'd sure like to have more titles than that though, like a new title every 100 posts or so.

    Re: New user titles: suggestions

    Woohoo! Gotta think up some titles for those higher post counts too.

    Gazornan thanks for the suggestions. We already have Grease Monkey at 250 posts btw but keep the suggestions coming.

    Remember, titles for post counts below 1000 are relatively negative but in a humorous way. We're not trying to insult folks away, just motivate them to get to the next higher title which should be a little more respectful (but funny too) than the last.

    All until the coveted "Gearhead" title at 1000 posts. That shows a minimum investment in the forum and makes the member one of us. Can you believe it used to be only 100 posts? Titles after 1000 posts will all be positive so no more grease stains or skid marks.

    I really want to reserve titles with "Senior" and "Master" in them for post counts of 5000 or 10,000. Mit's not set in stone but my opinion is if it takes someone's whole enlisted military career to make chief, senior chief and master chief we should probably follow that here. That's just me though. I could probably just be overthinking it all.

    So, only four of you are "one of us"? That is insulting.

    No. Just keep posting. Then there'll be "lots of us" which is kinda the point.
