As for custom titles:
We're going to do it differently - more fun this way! We (with suggestions from members) are going to choose the member titles. Custom titles are only given to members who participate regularly on the board. This is because we need to get a feeling for who you are before we can give you a member title.
Fair warning - asking for a title can be quite dangerous! You're usually better off waiting until the titly fairy grants you one, lest you get something very embarassing or none at all.
Feel free to PM an Administrator if you have any suggestions for a funny/silly member title for someone else. We can't promise that we'll use your suggestion but we'd love to hear them.
If you get your title and for some reason you don't like it, please let an Administrator know! It's not a problem to change it - we wouldn't want anyone to be uncomfortable; it's supposed to be fun.
Changing User Names
There is not an option for you to change your user name yourself - but if for some reason you would like to, please message me or any of the other admins and we will take care of it for you.
This way you won't lose the posts you have made and it will help keep things more organized in the database, which means faster load times for everyone.
Please limit username changes to one instance. Multiple changes make it difficult to follow posts within the forum.
PLEASE do not create a new account - we are more than happy to change it for you - but multiple accounts cannot be allowed.
