I should also probably mention that everyone on the card forum can now enjoy the luxury and prestige of a five star rating. Simply reduce the size of your present icon/avatar by 20% and add the attached file to the top.

I was wondering how those titles were chosen. I had no idea it was based on the number of posts............guess I slept through class that day.

Would love the chance to change my title as long as the title meets the approval of the Moderator and SGC.

I've got a custom title.

I'd noticed that VaYank had received a custom title, and PM'ed the Architect to ask about it. In addition, I sent a suggestion (which I've since forgotten) for my preferred title based on a motto I use in my self-built card inventory software, "Where Great Cards Go To Die".

He responded to say that titles are not awarded as requested. They occur in the normal flow of things, and are assigned ... usually just for the humor benefit. He went on to say that if he started fulfilling requests for titles, it would be come overwhelming.

He then assigned a title to my account that's better than anything I could have dreamed up.

Bottom Line: I like my custom title and would hate to lose it due to the fact that I've broadcast its existence. But based on my conversation with Arch, I believe the prospects of requesting/receiving custom title changes, as a standard practice, are slim-to-none.

Holy Cow, Even lothar has somehow gotten himself a custom title.

I do like DE's title...and remember the exchange that got Yank his...a very humerous exchange with a comic guy who stumbled into the basement.

Do you think I've got a shot at "hammer headed, dense and old"? I guess I can always dream.

Yeah, but look at what it is -- "stranger". Not "mysterious stranger", "handsome stranger" or even "stranger than stranger". Just stranger. I think he needs an upgrade.

I hate to take this thread in a different direction but seeing the words "Handsome Stranger" set off a memory. There is an early Arnold Schwarzenegger film (A WESTERN OF ALL THINGS!!) in which he plays a character with the name of "Handsome Stranger". Ann Margaret, a potential love interest in the film, asks how he got his name. <> "I was named after my father".

The film is called "The Villian".

One of my famous lines is "I don't get paid for what I do, I get paid for what I might have to do".........I wouldn't mind that title.
