Default User titles- request for new ones!

Hi,

It would be cool if we could change the user titles!

Because there just junior and senior! We could make dog ones like,

Chihuahua
pomerainen
jack russel
cavalier king charles spaniel

And so on or start at puppy!

I just think it would be great!

Also if we could I think it would be better if it went up on rep points not posts! Because that just teaches people that if they post junk it goes up!


Who likes the idea?

Here's another discussion we've had on the same subject and it never seemed to go anywhere. http://dogforum.org/showthread.php?t=8060

I do agree with this:

Or it could go up based on the amount of time someone has been an active member. That's what it's meant to do now but huge numbers of posts can be decieving. Especially if they're only 2 or 3 words!

Using breeds of dogs somehow doesn't seem to fit though! I sure wouldn't want to be represented as a lap dog, tenacious terrior or, rare breed.

Yes, please do use that linked thread. My hope was that some form of consensus would form or at least that two or three suggestions would gain momentum. Dig through that thread and support one(s) that you feel are great and/or post up what you'd rather see.

I believe the vbulletin software has that particular field set up to go solely by post count, but I could check into it further. We already have a "rep meter" so to speak - actually two - the paws under member names and the meter near the rep count. It would be nice if we were somehow able to tie that into activity, but that might evolve into someone just posting once a day/week/month/whatever just to keep a title. Because of the easy workaround with that, I'd rather just keep that particular thing as something light and fun.

Yes on Friendship Forum, which is a VB site, we have the power to do that, we can change it to whatever we want. I think its a good idea, makes things a little bit more personal.

I like the idea of a member being able to create his/her own title. I belong to another forum, which allows members to make up their own designation.
