    Default User Titles - Updated Jan. 15, 2014

    As you have noticed, over the last couple of years we give titles (and little icons, right side) to each user based on the amount of posts they have. Gates Imbeau and I have added eight new titles to this list and made a few changes to the mini-avatars. Here is a complete list, with the mini-avatars. Further to this list, Gates will be putting in the odd 'easter egg' - sticking in the odd change of avatar for a couple of posts before it switches back. Enjoy!

    It appears you moved some of these avatars up in post count from where they were before...

    So for example, I've already been through a thousand posts of the "juggernaut" and even worse, almost a thousand posts of the "samurai" (which looks terrible!) As a result, we have to "relive" these same avatars that we've already had in the past for another thousand posts in the future.

    Was that intentional?

    Juggernaut wasn't really all that bright, IIRC

    Not intentional, I'm in the same boat as you. In fact, I had them longer! Just an unfortunate turn. Because all 8 titles were added to the top 14,000 posts. More rapid title changes for users in their first 10,000

    Those 50 posts before 5,000 where you get to be Big Sexy Kevin Nash are undoubtedly the best.

    These are great Dobber!!!

    My minor tweaks of recommendations (because I'm a "pattern recognition guy"):

    5500 Guru (these follow better behind the Wrestlers, I think)
    6000 Giant
    (6500 Icon is fine there, a good transition to
    7000 Sage
    7500 Wizard
    8000 Master
    ...
    ...
    10950 The Wolverine (keeps the comic book/action heroes in line with each other)
    12900 [Martial Arts*] (keep these in line with each other. The specialist... ugh, I don't know... probably my least favourite of all the upper tier stuff, just doesn't seem to fit.]

    I think we should increase the size so they are bigger than the avatar we actually get to chose......

    You know what one I'd like to see? "The T!ts"

    Hit a certain number of posts and suddenly this guy is "The T!ts". Make it the way to earn back bobbie avatars!

    Of course, considering I can't even type T!ts without it getting censored this probably never happens.

    blayze, you are so close to upgrading to "The Wolverine"... get posting man!

    Note - not sure why I thought of this thread this morning.
    Without me, it's only "aweso".

    I never look at the right side of the screen so I end up not paying attention to these rank avatars.

    In fact, I don't even know where anyone lives!

    Isn't this a bit much focus on quantity over quality of posts? Ah well... Second highest rank is Thor and I'm already Wotan without having to write another 29000 posts...
