~ I can find nothing that allows me to change this under-the-user-name title (it should have a name itself!) in the User Control Panel. I have searched the entire Panel for it, five times now. Either that control does not, in fact, exist, or it is not available to me due to my small number of posts, as is true with user titles at some other boards.
(I feel inferior enough as it is, and am still not sure I belong, given that almost everyone else here has made tens of thousands of posts.)
~ CatScratch says I can't change it myself. Nietoperz says I can, and that I should contact "Jude," but I have no idea who that is. I'd appreciate either a user name to send a PM, or your further help when you have time.
~ This title has changed twice for me today, from "Whippersnapper" to something else to "Birdman." I find it hard to believe that it would change within the space of making five posts. Or that this last is part of a hierarchy of names. It seemed likely that someone here was changing it, to something that obviously fit my avatar.
Nonetheless, if it's possible for this title to be made permanent, and impossible for me to change it myself, I'd prefer that some op or admin here freeze it as "Birdman."
~ I'd have put this whole matter in a general administration thread, but I can't find one.
The title you described can be changed by yourself. It's under the control panel as I described, it used to be that we couldn't, so please note that mine doesn't change, as Lord Simian fixed it that way for me years ago when we couldn't. Jude is the ever famous Jude Terror
. Nieto has said he'll fix it for you tomorrow when he can so it will stay "Birdman". Sorry to confuse you.
That title changes automatically as your post count increases until then.
I pointed out how you can change your setting in regards to the "online/offline" status. The control is within that part of the control panel labeled "profile".
Is the sub forum to go to for problems like this. Derailments are not a crime here. bugs-and-fixes/
And hey don't fret on the post count. Some of us are post whores.
