Yep.

So...

We really only need about 4 new ranks, 1 each for 6000, 7000, 8000, and 9000. Then everyone past 10,000 should be able to make their own.

Wish I had some ideas for this. Maybe stuff along the lines of Grammy winning, HOF Inductee, suing fans, sued for sounding like yourself. I dunno.

i would just like to add at this juncture that i hate being a street teamer. it sounds like i have asphalt teeming out of my ass.

do you mean to say i hafta post 4,750 posts just to get to death? i kinda like death. but it aint gonna happen (the post count, not death as an invariable.)

why can't we just name ourselves? on some boards, i'm astronomy domino's™. bet there aren't many early floyd fans around here, though... particularly early floyd fans who see the constellations on the surface of a pepperoni pizza.

damn.

hm, i might could do this. the ranks have sort of lost their luster after all this time. if only anyone else read this forum, we could get other people's opinions...

Do what? Let people pick their own? Isn't that what usernames are for?

I say custom ranks but everybody else has to decide yours for you. Each person gets a thread, say in this forum to avoid clutter, where suggestions are thrown out. After a while, a poll is made and votes are made on each person's new rank title.

sure, i guess a screen name is enough.

but really... when ya think about it, being able to subtitle yerself adds an extra dimension to the whole obner experience. it lends a certain aesthetic, artistic freedom that flies in the face of any formulaic form-for-form's-sake fucquewadditude. it allows that one added phrase of self-expression, a thing that may not mean very much to those who actually have lives, but to the life-deprived like moi, it can mean the difference between being bound in a nutshell of a name and being the queen of infinite e-space.

waiddaminute. can we vote on the issue of naming our own selves first?

see, i'm not really interested in naming other people. the idea is a bit unfair, in my mind. why?

1. i only know circa 2.3 folk on this board (dusty, zombeels, and i swear, someone's ever-morphing avatar rings a kathish bell somewhere.) i wouldn't know what to call anybody. i would run out of names once i hit the eighth dwarf.

and

2. nobody really knows me. if other people name me, i could end up with something much worse than street teamery. oh, say, kathy mcn00b. or kathy the n00bular. or kathy n00bib00bs. or even just plain kath-y. this would make me flee faster than you can hit yer -y key... which is a good thing, if yer trying to get rid of me, but a bad thing if yer me.

the other advantage to naming yerself is that you can change it whenever ya get bored with it. one day i can be astronomy domino's™. the next day, i could be the groovy queen of crap unforeseen. the day after that, i could go for some pithy motto, e.g., arse gratia artis, or tempus fucqueit, or loritabula rasa, or unpopular pygmies gnaw at the foot of the enigma, or waiting to make trent reznor her own personal human cheesecake.

okay, so the trent thing is too long, but you get the idea.

..where was i? oh yeah, making a grilled cheese for breakfast.

He wasn't serious.

But you probably knew that.

Oh, and WRT the screen names -- you can change yours, even after you register. I don't know if you knew that. So if you wanted to go with "kathy n00bib00bs", and changed your mind later, you could. You could even change it to "kathy I'll cut your fucking hands off if you do that one more time" later, although that might be too long.

You may create the ranks list, using the article quantities necessary, someplace permanent.
