    Default Forum Titles

    How do you get a forum title? Like Memnir's "Bwest Fwiends" (so freakin adorable) Now "Founder" is obvious and at first I thought it was based on how much rep you've received.... But then I saw someone who only had three greenies with a title so I really have no clue

    Some kind of ingame event. "Stormreach Advisor" confuses me, it's supposed to be some kind of undercover gm playing and asking questions and I always do my best to answer every question I see no matter how obvious it sounds but never anything productive. Maybe I was told wrong...

    you get a forum title by being awesome, or doing something spectacular. stainer got 'prophet of lolth' by being the first do discover that www.lolthiscoming.com forwarded you to the ddo home page, before any news of lolth or the expansion was coming. others with names like 'the front side' got their name by posting in a thread hailing the Cube. do something memorable in the forums, something really awesome, and you may get a title. i think most people who got one were not actually trying to get one, they just impressed someone and got one- i believe with the exception of the cubies.

    I have been told you have to contact a dev/adim type and request the change.

    If I'm not mistaken:
    1. Founder- those who joined/activated their account when the game was first launched in 2006.
    2. Stormreach Advisor - written some guide to players on the forums.
    3. I <3 DDO - won contest (Valentine's Day?).
    4. Custom titles - given on special basis - e.g. stainer's, memnir's and the Cube supporters.

    Actively seeking a title probably won't get you one, just go about your normal forum business and one day maybe you'll do something special and someone at Turbine will notice you, so you'll end up with a title. The exception of course being when the Devs/Community Reps put up a contest for a title, in which case, go nuts trying to get it!

    I make it sound like a happy fairytale don't I?

    When fansites were first officially supported and cataloged in the forums, those of us who registered our fansite in that timeframe got our titles turned into links.

    I suggests that Turbine adds a new purchaseable "forum title" in the DDO Store, they'll make good money.

    I was lead to believe that the forum staff will give a new title to those they find worthy of getting one.. I saw a post on it some time back I think it was Cord that explained it.. But was long enough ago my mind just really doesn't remember it all..

    It's not faaaair!! Waaaaah!

    Where's the easy button for a forum title? Why should other people get forum titles but not me?

    The forum mods hate rangers/elves/dOOooOOmers/casual posters/hardcore posters/noobs/newbs/bronies/casters/melee/bards/people who post in colored text/long signatures/fanbois and that's why I'll never get my own custom title.

    I'm quitting. You can't have my stuff.

    And if they do change it so everyone can have a custom forum title, I'll still quit because then it's not special and I don't want it anymore if it's not uber leet.

    If I recall correctly, Cordovan had the title "DDO Podcast Host" or similar when his name was Mockduck, before he was snatched up in the maw of Corporate Game Community Support-ness.

    I can't remember if Tolero had a forum title when she was a mere mortal but the work she did with her videos certainly would deserve one today.

    I don't think I would deserve a title myself, as I'm not a Number Cruncher/Lore Master or anything like that. At best I might rate "Forum Foole", but only then if Turbine has a font with backward "F"s
