Well, lets really setup a good list for each race and propose it to the moderators! it all sounds very good!

Now, if only we had some kind of a stationary post to update each race's titles each time..

Excellent idea, all taken care of!

I'll try and update that post with all new suggestions, so we have them all neat and tidy.

Well done!!  Cheesy

Isn't 5-star the maximum though? hmm!

Kzer-Za: Fusion blast, Fighter craft, Dreadnaught Lord, Race Enslaver
Kohr-Ah: ?, ?, Marauder Captain, Species Cleanser  (ok need help on this one Tongue)

hahah and this one could have lots of possibilities (not sorted):
Shofixti: "leprous, non-functional sex organ";"pitiful imitation of six-weeks dead Dhrang";"cowardly slug-spawn";"slithering eater of putrid hairballs";"weakling fancier of herd animal excrement";"toothless, piebald, impotent roof-rabbit";"limp, bloodless sack of decaying flesh Ur-Quan!";"dripping, snout-rotted little furball";
"performer of ribald feats of unsurpassed fertility"

hehe.. I wouldn't know which ones fit though; perhaps these are too blunt?

YaBB only supports five different titles based on post counts. There's not going to be any race option and such, it's not possible with the forum software.

I think I'll now choose the titles from what you've proposed.

I believe some day this will go to the same as mtgnews.com has... most of the members have about 3000+ posts on the boards. I am a rare sight; only 150. Tongue

I just can't understand how people get to post messages so darn many times. I mainly check the site once per day, answer only to threads that interest me. Write something down, and get back to IRC. Wink

And I'm still quite an old member of this board... Tongue

Nothing constructive to do? Wink

I've been here since day one and lost about 15 posts in the crash when this forum was hosted on SourceForge.  I'm barely in the top 15...

Hmm... surprising what some people see as insulting. I'm not attached to the titles, but I know we all had a good laugh at them in the channel when I suggested them there. It could be something cultural. Here in the Netherlands, you can make jokes about just about whatever you like. I know Americans are very 'conservative' in this aspect though.
Lukipela, Death_999, I'm curious, what countries are you from?

The new titles I find rather boring though (as if anyone cares).

Btw, the next title in the list would have been "Hyperactive insomniac on speed." IIRC.

I didn't feel that insulted, for me it was more that it seemed to be a bit of a pointless and unfunny title. And isn't the idea for the ranks to be amusing and intersting. that just doesnt make me smile at all, around where i live it's more of an adoscelent humour..

For the record, I'm a finn.
