Prince of Space does sound cool... somebody needs to snap that one up quick. I'll pass, though.

Wouldn't it be easier to make it so anyone who has over 500 posts could edit their own custom titles rather than having to contact Viking-Sensei to get them changed?

You do make a good point Mord (who was nearly appointed Prince of Space), however I still want to be able to maintain a little control over the process. I may unleash the power for complete user-controlled titles eventually, however for now I'd rather keep it under my thumb to apply on a discretionary basis.

If I get to 500 posts before the world ends, can I be "Damned"?

No, actually that was just a lame play on words, not a real request, given that I'll probably be over 500 by December. The standard over 500 title would probably be fine.

Therein sort of lies the problem... there's no special rank set up (right now, anyway) past 30. So... once you hit 30 you become a "Forum Regular", and that's about it. I'm hoping to improve upon that with this new 500-for-a-custom-rank goal, however it does occur to me that we probably had better add a few more intermediates.

Ok, so I've added a few new ones. There was a huge gap at the beginning, so I've added "Forum Trainee" at the 15 post mark to spread that out a little bit. At 30 you still become a Regular. At 100 you become an "Errant Scholar", and at 250 you become a "Mage/Priest War Vetran". Then at 500 you can pick your own damn title.

Is the misspelling part of the fun?

*grumblegrumble* You could've just gone in and fixed it yourself, you know. There, I fixed it.
