Too bad the titles are not matched to activity:

Clams - sit around and filter what comes through (guilty!)
Eels - shocking personalites
Clown fish - goes without saying
Angel fish - not enough of them!
Lock masters - the ones in control
Barnacles - they just hang on to be a real pain in the ass!

Picking your own is the same as none, providing no useful information...might as well put it in your signature. I find the standard ones useful.

What Marin said a long time ago.

I'm on one board where you can "like" a helpful post and that gets added to a sort of rating for the poster. That can be useful; it can likely be abused to. Either way it means more than a simple post count. Some people like to hear the sound of their own keystrokes. Others can speak volumes in very few posts. Anybody that spends any length of time here pretty soon figures out who belongs in each category. The title under the username contributes exactly zero to that process.

Does the new "Thank You" button have a counter? So if the owners think there is a real need to title folks I would like to suggest that the number of Thanks that an individual receives might be of some value. With that in mind we could start using that as a system to vote among our self. Rating could be % of thanks vs total posts form a date to a date. Yearly, six month or even monthly. Obviously one could not thank ones self and receive credit.

Short of something like that, I'm in favor of either letting one pick their own Nick name as well as "none". Posts count numbers are useless.

AT the end of the day, a member with a high post count may have that high post count because he's lonely, bored and got nothing else to do, but more often, they have a high post count because they have a lasting interest, and useful stuff to contribute.

Usertitles are a much more fun way of imparting this info. And yes, I do believe that new members, if they are interested in sticking around, do like to get those usertitles under their belt. A bit like those 5 stars McDonald's employees get - we know they are only stars, but people just love getting them!

Not sure about here, but on CF (Cruisers Forum) the thanks level of a member does get logged, but the public can't see it. I think that it would be good if members at least could see the thanks level - it might encourage them to offer up more thanks, which are always appreciated!

If you are a regular member you do not need tItles and post counts. I am more interested in the members profile. As that Informration is helpful when replying. If you are a regular member you know which members have contributed. So what ever titles are used is ok with me. However I would like more information in the profiles which would be helpful.

Ditto! I still have a boyhood crush on her!

As said above, it's all rather silly, when I've got a question, I know who's answers to take seriously. If you spend any time here, you know who just likes to hear themselves talk.

That said, on the old board someone had the title "BANNED" which I thought was funny. Not sure if he was really banned or if it was just a title.

Ditto the LIKE button option.

Should the Gilligan's Island theme get adopted, we have plans to have the "BANNED" title become "Wrongway Feldman"
