Old User Titles - Or: How To Re-enter The Game Of Thrones

Because the topic popped up recently here's a short explanation on how our user titles work:

It basically depends on the amount of postings. Additionally there's custom user titles which can be given to users by an admin (e.g. @JimmyM 's title). Here's a screen shot of the current standard titles list:

But. The forums once was based on a different software, so the database had to be translated. It seems the import/export has set the old titles as custom user titles, so users from before the transition will be stuck on their titles.

If you experience a difference between your title and the list above and you feel like re-entering the game of thrones, please leave a comment in this thread or inform (preferably) me or another admin to remove the custom title from your user account.

So Senior Member really does mean I've been around a long time, or at least before *the software change*. Those were the good ole days. LOL

I don't see Astatine Member level??? It's radio-active like I was a yute driving my VD mobile (it was a Grandville Pontiac that part Gra and half of n fell off-hence "VD Ville" and it was a big party car). Astatine is rare (like Me) has a short half-life like my memory-and it's "hot"-just like "Me".LOL. Ok maybe I'm reaching how about Ass-Tatine Emperor member?

Wow wake up this morning and the Dawgs won against the tide-I was shocked. Georgia has won two national championships this year-baseball and football. It's a miracle and I could care less but I'm a small minority. Well anyways because of this feat I deserve Astatine Expert Member.

Whatever you prefer, dude! Please be aware that the time span for keeping a title containing a chemical element is inversely proportional to its half-life, which means that for Astatine (half-life of 8.1 hours) it's 2.351 billion years.

Have fun with that.

Hmm. The name/counter hasn’t updated my title, but I wasn’t here before the transition (or maybe I was and didn’t know it).

Another reason I quit my band - one of the groupies was a Georgia fan :). Anyway, I was too tired to stay up and watch the second half.

Wow I'm honored-I don't deserve it! Astatine Expert!!!! I'm ready for intergalactic travel now. And I have 2.351 billion years to post on here-so I've been essentially "immortalized". Dang I think I feel it-and look younger-my oracle powers of internet perception are heightened. Dang I'm doing a Wheelie now. Whoop whoop the wife is going to get lucky tonight. I thought the title pretty cool but being 'Immortal" is just so sweet (in my best Ferris Bueller voice). This is "Awesome"!!!!!

I think you misspelled asinine!!! Astatine is the result of decay. Maybe you are right??

Upon reflection of my new immortality I realize the error of my ways and it won't be so great after all. I don't want to be immortal! Oh Supergrobi please return me to my normal status-heck I'll be a Drum Authority one day and I'd rather be mortal than a demi-god. I don't want to mess up the equilibrium and cosmic balance of the present DW forum titles (and no one took a sword to officially make me an At Expert so it wasn't official yet). My oracle powers predict chaos will ensue inevitably-it could spell Doom!. So the At is really an As.

I am still looking for the "feckless twit" moniker. Perhaps I should submit a technical request ticket. :unsure:

Cool more members who move to diamond, and become a permanent carbon sink, we do our bit to save the planet. Yes I was once a diamond in the rough but now I'm a real "gem" (more a "Gem"-Dandy in my red-neck of woods). I can't wait to tell my wife-all this time and now at this late date I'm a gem. What a run of events-from As to C traveling the periodic table.

Maybe we should follow the chart for all so start off with a Hydrogen member, Helium member, Boron member, Lead member, Silver member, Gold, etc. ???

I’m at over 6,000 posts, but I’m stuck in the old algorithm at Platinum Member. It doesn’t bother me. I was hoping maybe one day I could get a cool, customized title like Larryace’s Archnemesis or something…
For all us pre blip users - there should be one named ' Cape Wearer' 😆

The idea was to get titles that all would recognize and have some comparitive qualities. There are a few special ones but the name change game was getting out of hand. Thanks for understanding.

Can remove the old (now static) Platinum member & move to the new system which makes you a Diamond member if you wish :)

Looking at the current titles as of right now, if you remove Caddys stuck title and put him on the current plan, his title just goes away. Only those of us with a stuck title are currently showing. Everyone else is blank:
