    That shouldn't be a reason to become a postwhore tho. Stars are nice tough. Pointy and shiny.

    I think the fact that I have under 5000 posts in nearly 7 years of membership shows that I am no post whore :roll:

    Pffftt, I've been here like 2 years and look at my post count :laugh:

    Posting when ever :p To be fair I was unemployed for most of that time though :laugh:



    Problem is with custom titles you either have to already be known for something or request your own.

    I'm to lazy for the latter. lol

    You post of a lot dribble mind.

    ;)

    I'm only messin' - my ethos is to only post when I feel it's necessary and not to bump my post count up. Nuttin' wrong with havin' a low post count or a high one really. It's the posts that help others that do.

    You need to make your title... Let me make some suggestions:

    MoonPig's Bitch
    MoonPig's Virtual Sex Slave

    etc etc.

    I think you get the idea.

    You're not alone. English isn't my native language but I'm awefully pedantic about correct grammar. That makes me kind of a hypocrite though, since I'm far from applying perfect English grammar.

    You can have it too, but it's mainly Panther.

    You sir deserve respect in more ways than one. Where as most see it as people being douchebags or, hypocritical - you're striving to better yourself & helping the ignorant.

    Respect.

    No IC isn't joking.

    He's always pointing out my mistakes so I think he's giving you a legit compliment.

    He even does it on steam! Just nothing but mean that man IC. XD

    I got my custom title at about 1700 posts for being in the right place at the right time and saying the right thing.
    I became a mod before I hit 5000 posts and now can change my title to whatever I want.

    The title is not important, it's the name above the title.
    Make that name easily recognized for something you are really good at and it will go a lot farther than whatever your title says.

    Just my 2 cents. :toast:
     
    wolf and qubit say thanks.

    I can be if you want me to be but as Panther said; I was paying you a compliment as you've been informative & helpful in other threads without being an arrogant dick. What makes you think I was fucking with you?

    Well your comment had sort of a sarcastic undertone to it. At least I interpreted as sarcastic. Thank you, then.
