    Custom User Titles

    I've just passed the 500 posts mark and have noticed that I can actually change my title under my username that appears to the left of all the posts. The number of posts is not my point since I am not trying to up my count... I just want to say at this point that I only post useful posts that help others and not useless ones as we know many do... this is because I don't have the time to post 'fun' posts... I'm only really here to help others as it's a really good community, we all help each other.

    Now... I'm wondering what people actually put as their title, I've seen quite a few different ones, the two that have stuck in my mind is "Superman" and "God"... but there's load more, maybe you can post your name here.

    My question... how do people use the title space? Since people sometimes have strange usernames, do people put their company name in the title, so people know that your username represents your company, let it be a web hosting company or any other company? But on the other hand, would this suggest to others that you're only posting to advertise your company? I've only seen a few people who do this and I find it more professional, but what are other people's views?

    I, uh, just put something stupid. Used to be "Hot Flying Fragments". Now, as you can see, it is "hit me with a brick". It changes whenever I have a new idea.

    As I remember it used to take people a long time to figure out that "Rotaredom" thing, but that was before they started making better idiots.

    Well, since there is a rule about playing nice on the board...I like to use mine to snipe at others (hence my current title). Next, I think I will go for djbhosting .

    <------ I love mine! It fits me.
    So we finish the 18th and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know?" And he says, 'Oh, there won't be any money. But when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness.' So I got that goin' for me, which is nice." --Bill Murray Caddyshack

    Lol, nice ones Jag and iamdave . I guess titles don't matter much... but I'll try and think of a title name later on, if I don't I'll just put our company name.

    This title can be rented for a modest monthly fee of $99, this includes unlimited number of views.

    Sounds kinda profitable - wishes his post count was higher
