A Question of Preference
 
Just a few thoughts for the mods:


1) Is it possible to banish the "minimum characters per post" option (or at least lowering it to 1)? I'm getting tired of typing out lengthy posts when all I really want to say is .



2) It would be a lot more fun if we could specify our own user titles. I'm what, a Power Ranger or something -- along with ten million other Drew students. I'd much rather be my own unique user kthanx. :D

Questions? Comments? Votes?

Personally, I'd like to hear more from people than a graphic. *shrug* If I want people replying with silly photos that say PWNED!!!11, I'd read Fark or SA or /. at -1.

On most message boards, a person's words are capable of setting them apart as unique users. :D

I don't speak for CNS or the other mods or anyone beyond myself. All of this was discussed before putting things into place. We debated not using titles, making them user-specified, or going with the current (default) system. You can see what won out.

Though, as the third most prolific poster on these boards, rest assured that you'll have a higher title than most out there.

I post on the other forums and on one of them, they have a custom title in addition to the ranking system. It's a pretty nice way to do it, but I don't know if thats compatible with this board system.

The other two are more similar to this. One doesn't even have a post count because they don't want people posting useless shit to boost it. The other has a bunch of interesting titles. I think I'm currently a Pizza Guy or Mustache Rider or something.

I love the Ha Ha guy too, but he's getting to be too prolific. People spam message boards and forums w/ this guy. Now I am more into the teachings of the Giant Spaghetti Monster, he reached out and touched us with his noodly appendage

Ramen.
