    Ok, so am I the only one feeling 5000 posts is to little to give out user titles? There are loads of people with +5000 posts (including me for some damned reason), and it generally feels clustered with all the titles flowing around. I think 10 000 posts would be better.

    So you don't think people like me contribute enough? I have no where near that much but I stop by as much as I can, everyday on average.. I help tons of people.. I think what you just said is kind of rude and a bit eliteist.. I took it personal..

    Been here since 2007.. I'd be dead before I ever got a title at that rate..
    Post whoring does not mean you are a more valuable member..

    Wait what? Did I imply that with the post? That was cetrinaly not the intention. It's only about how many posts you have, which indeed does not equal contribution. You get user titles at 5000 posts, it's the way it is, and I wanted that bar to be raised to 10 000 posts because we have so many users with +5000 posts already and I think the forum gets even more cluttered with personalized user titles.

    EDIT: And I have actually given this some thought, and I have found that Fishfaced Nincompoop is the best title.

    Damnit. You've crushed my dream of having a custom title. I've been working towards a custom title since I joined. :cry:

    He didn't change the 5K posts limit, he just gave Frick his wish of being called Fishfaced Nincompoop.

    I still have just over 1700 post to go to hit 5000, and you want to raise it?


    Well that's one more post closer to 5000.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Oh I think we should leave it where it is. Some have been trying to work towards that custom title but in a none whoring trying to be useful way. Like that guy above me.
