Under my user name is the title "stranger". Why? I don't see any other members with titles except for the mods and admins.

Probably because nobody recognizes your avatar.

Edit: And maybe because of your premature registration?

Trying new avatar not sure I like it. Finally got my name back (no 1) after that stupid format change a few years ago. The premature detonation (we've all had that happen before) might explain it.

Your new avatar gives me a sense of deja-view; I feel like I've seen it, or something very similar to it, back in the old-country.

Now THAT is beyond my nonexistent power. Remember the admins are still working behind the scenes and playing with features, so I'm not sure they're quite ready to turn on titles yet. They may also be deciding on a new title rank structure. If so, would be fun to have an open vote. I vote for anyone over 25k posts being titled "Lisa" wink

Too gender laden...

Heck with titles, how about sex? Er, I mean that in terms of which one, uh, gender, ya know? Some of the genderless names leave me guessing. But then, maybe some like it that way.

Right, isn't that part of the fun of the internet? For instance, you probably didn't realize that I'm actually a giant arachnid.

Artie pegged it, knoodles: you (and one other person) acquired the UBB.threads stock 0-25 posts title because you registered during that brief period when registration was open before I was ready.

While setting up the forums I removed the stock titles because I don't much like those particular ones. Also because I'm not super keen on titles based solely on post counts; we may yet have them, but if so they'll come later when other more important details have been sorted.

For now: do you want to keep your "stranger" title?

PS - I moved this thread from the Lounge to FineTunedMac Feedback.

Cyn,

Please remove the stranger title when you have time. I also agree with you about the titles not being based on post counts especially if posts in the lounge or feedback forums count.

Thanks, Gary

Resoundingly seconded!

Titles based on expertise, though, are so subjective (Mac Guru, for instance) they would likely cause issues that nobody would want to deal with.

Knoodles, I tried but the setting I'd hoped would do the trick didn't. Apparently I need to do something more extensive...not difficult or anything, but new to me so I want to check with tacit before I start clicking buttons I haven't touched before.

At the moment you're "not a stranger" (I know, not real imaginative on my part but it's what came to mind!). If you'd rather go back to stranger or have an idea for a different temporary title let me know and I'll get it in place 'til I can hook up with tacit.

Gary, I found an easy fix. You're now title-less.

I hadn't noticed. Now that you've mentioned it, I don't see 'em. I suppose that is a "global" setting, irrespective of the Forum page.... or not?
