    Im not sure. I think it should be 500. That's reasonable to me.

    Dear lord that is a lot of posts to have a custom member title...

    Personally, I would set it at 10 and still have the defaults.

    I don't know how much you guys experience it, but on a forum I help run we have a great amount of post whoring going on just to get to a higher post count than somebody else, to get that extra blue pip (or medal here), to get into the top ten ranked members and etc.

    I think if you set such a high limit, you may encourage people to make the required posts just to get the ability to change the member title. Which can mean up to 500 or more posts of inane post whoring. Personally, I just tend to read this forum and maybe post every once in a while when I decide I want to be heard. I can understand possibly wanting the user to be a member of the community before they can change their user text, but I don't think this feature holds the significance of only being able to go to people of higher post counts.

    And I doubt my 40 (20+20) posts make me a valid commenter on this board, but what can I say... I am somewhat of a lurker...

    500 seems fair enough! But if people spam just to get it, they're outta here [​IMG]

    Only people who are on the forums often and don't spam etc should be allowed to change their title.

    I think 500 is fair enough. I don't post just to get a high ranking, I post because I want to take part in the discussions we make in this forum. In my real life, I usually don't speak much if nothing at all. But, here, I'm actually speaking my mind in many subjects.

    Do we really even need to have users create their own custom title? I thought it was good enough to be able to be a member on this board without any pre-requisites.

    I think that you should keep it on at least 500 KiVan, and mayeb you should add a "reward" system so that posters who made serious, informative and good posts could get a small bonus to his posts, like 5 or 10 + [​IMG]

    On temporary hiatus.
    I'd have to say somewhere between 500 and 800. The higher it is, the fewer people we're going to get, and if someone wants a custom title they may want to spam to get it if it's too low. 200 seems a bit low, though.

    BTW, rather amusing final option. We know that he'll eventually hit that mark... [​IMG] But hey, so might I, eventually...

    Really, the custom title isn't that important. I mean, only three people have them, and look at them all:
    Neocat: GBATemp Cat
    Me: GBATemp Ninja of the Crescent Keyboard (Though for today, to commemerate the poll, I'll change it!)
    Dice: GBATemp Player
    Most aren't overly creative. It'd be nice to see a change in that, and it reflects the writer as well.

    KiVan, I noticed that we all use "GBATemp" in various spellings in the title. We do that out of loyalty, I think. There are those who wouldn't do it, though... is it possible to lock the word "GBATemp" at the front at all?

    -Tempest out.-

    i don't know if it's possible to lock the GBAtemp thingie in the title but i don't want to lock it anyway [​IMG]
    because a person should be free to show his loyalty to us [​IMG]

    i want to lower the limit not to increase the spam [​IMG] but to give a new variable to edit in the profile of regular posters
