My title.

Before the conversion, my title was "Master and Commander." It was changed to "Guru" (which I am unqualified for except for having posted many messages). At my request, it was changed back to M&C. But now it has been changed back to "Guru." What's going on?

HMMMM it appears you are at the 'Letter of the Marque' stage where Capt Aubrey is dismissed from the service, unjustly as it turns out. Never fear he was reinstated in the next book, so I'm sure your 'nom de plume' will be returned to you in all its glory.

I tried to change it in the mod setting, but it doesn't take. I guess my Jedi powers are weak. Sorry. Andy or Janet will have to do it.

The usertitles are based on post count and are automated. On the list of projects is coming up with more inspired rankings (the current ones were from the old board)

Would you accept <1deg? You'd be JUST short. One nautical mile is 6076.1 ft.

If titles are gonna be based on post counts, I vote that all OTDE posts not qualify.
