Custom titles

Postby Jack Saladin » Fri Mar 09, 2007 10:48 pm UTC

Titles are those little words that appear below your name on the left.

Want one? Ask for it here after you've read through the thread - put what you want as a title in bold. And say please.

This is probably a limited time thing before we eventually restrict getting them somehow. Now would be a good time to get one.

I reserve the right to deny, contort, or alter any title at any time for any reason.

I think a good rule of thumb is if someone doesn't have a title and doesn't indicate wanting one, they are void from titledom until they request one in. Once you've got one though, you're at Belials mercy if he decides he wants to change it.

Exceptions include getting a crappy/annoying/embarrassing title for pissing me off.

You're always at my mercy, I've been tagging people with titles since 7 minutes after I installed this thing.

Actually, I'd prefer to be titled without warning. Asking for one feels so... artificial. Unlike my intelligence.

I think "clever girl" is a quote from Jurassic Park...in a scene about raptors converging on the hunter expert dude...Belial, I wonder why you quoted that comment about raptors; care to explain?

Clearly "dan" is a raptor and Belial knows this.

But surely if I was a raptor, I'd recognize quotes from Jurassic Park? It has to be one of their favourite movies.

It's already been established that Belial is a raptor, possibly william as well, and now dan?? Davean, go warn Randall! Not only is he living with a raptor in disguise, this raptor is in league with others!!

Or perhaps I was simply paying him one of the highest compliments among my people?

Just a hypothetical, since I'm not a raptor

I advocate changing Singing About Potato's title from "spud-boy" to "potato-ambiguous-sex". :D

...Or, maybe not. :(

Assuming I were a raptor (which I'm not), would this really be surprising? We...err...*they* are pack predators, after all.

On another note, does anyone ever sit around and wonder what would have happened if we (by which I mean sentient, human-ish life) had evolved from some other large warm-blooded creature instead of apes?

I spend a lot of time thinking about the sociological consequences of being evolved from wolves, or dromaesaurids, or corvids, or pigs, or octopi...

Octopodes.

Also, apparently a program was run which entailed seeing what would have happened had no MEE happened -- and the Raptors grew thumbs and eventually became more and more like humans.... though I think it may have been Biased.


Back on topic, Yes, I agree that, randomly granted, spontaneous titles are those which are best. More of a sense of earning -- when Pesh got "Mad Hatter" and nobody else had a title, that was very special.

It's a good thing I don't have these powers. I'd be tempted to put stuff like "Changes lanes without signaling" or "Takes candy from babies" to random people.
