    What are some of the user titles you use? I'm trying to come up with some better than the ones we currently have.

    Feel free to post yours here.

    I like those, Wayne. Especially the first set for AA.

    To add to that one, Nick, maybe throw in Grand Master, Novice, Champion...

    Here's a little mix: Newcomer, Novice, Addict, Adept, Champion, Grand Master, Zealot, Guru?
    How about it?

    Okay, now how about applying some post-count values to these suckers?

    Here's what I'd use:

    • Lurker - 0
    • Newcomer - 1
    • Novice - 25
    • Addict - 50
    • Adept - 100
    • Champion - 250
    • Grand Master - 500
    • Zealot - 1000
    • Guru - 5000
    • Addicted Addict - 10000
    I added one to the beginning and one to the end. Thoughts?

    Those look pretty good, I think; definitely better than the current ones.

    As far as RCTgo goes, I have the following:

    • First Time Guest - 0
    • Park Guest - 30
    • Frequent Visitor - 75
    • Season Pass Holder - 150
    • Park Fanatic - 300
    • RCTgo Fanatic - 500

    I've been thinking about revising them slightly, but haven't gotten around to it yet. Definitely willing to take suggestions, if anyone has any ideas!

    I like these a lot actually.

    I have never really used 'user titles' I have always had the members come up with their own. But I do you badges for certain things like people who donate.

    I love those user titles and post count requirements as well. I particularly like "Addicted Addict" - funny stuff. :) And not to throw this thread off-topic, but Kevin, I noticed that you're located in Boston. Great to see someone from the area on here!

    I leave my forums at the defaults then let everyone have custom titles.

    A lot of the time this is simply the best way to do user titles.

    I usually have set titles as well as allow custom titles.

    I'd be keen to hear some suggestions for a parenting site. I have been thinking along the lines of stages of life:

    Baby
    Toddler
    Child
    Tween
    Teenager
    Adult
    Retired

    Then i could use Dead for those no longer on the site or banned :P

    I wouldn't do this. There will always be some user who takes those titles literally and treats people accordingly. You might find yourself doing a lot of explaining.
