I like this idea too, but as nearly everybody else in this thread said, post count does not make you a n00b, bad spelling, th3s3 typ3 0f p05t5, stupid posts and SPAM'ing makes you a n00b.

Kinda like myself.

I support this idea all the way. Too many of our Elite trainers look at a post count and call someone a noob. I know how it feels, especially when I first started.

I really like the idea.

IMO, the post count says n00b or not.

I dont think the post count determines your status. I'd say those who comply by the rules and actively contribute to the forums aren't noobs. Even people fresh from registration cant really be called a noob. Its those who break rules, or make a fool of themselves. The definition of 'noob' has been misunderstood by...well... noobs =P

But the post count is better as is. Its simple, and uniform. There is a heirarchy involved in any forum you go to. There always has been. This helps clearly state your position in the heirarchy. People who have been here longer should get more respect.

Eh, I don't know. This idea might get abused, you know, with all those "BAN ___!", or "___ for mod!" or "www._____.com <- Stupid website!". I don't support this, don't flame me, its just my opinion.

Agreed with G (I can never get the spelling for your name exactly right, I always have to look xD. Yes, I realize I'm both unsmart *heh* and lazy).

You have your name, you have your location, etc. You don't really need to have something else that's editable :-/

And in my opinion, that stuff doesn't really matter. Honestly, I never even look at my own post count anymore.

It's not how many posts you do, it's what posts you do, I don't support this idea at all, it's what you post, and besides, it's not like it calls you stupid or something.

I agree with U&E. What matters about post count? Being called a N00b because of it is laaaaaame.

There's hardly any point for Ryan to give us the ability to have our own little "titles". =/ What's the point of it? If you thought that the post count subject was of abuse, then think of what it'll be like when we have custom titles. Agreein' with the Gaia' 'ady 'ere.

Noob: h4hah u naem are stupid

Me: But it only says "God"! What's so wrong about that?!

Trust me. There's more harm than good done in with custom titles, to some extent.

IMO, the post count usually tells how used to this site you are. But I've seen people with very little posts (outside the trade forum) who aren't noobs, and people with a lot of posts typing in lowercase (none of the numbers though lol).

So what? Someone could spam their way to Level 10 and get veteran status. I mean, no offense, but 8,000+ posts and joining for a few months is awfuly in-average. No offense though.

You have a point. It would also be annoying seeing "____ is a n00b!" I don't support.

i don't really see the reason of being able to edit that. just put it in your sig or something like that. but i do agree with the fact that some people get called noobs purely by their post count which has to stop.

N00bishness isn't based on posts, but on typing skills and intelligence.

I believe titles are a great idea. However, maybe only people with a certain number of posts should get custom ones, thus preventing newbies from putting dumb stuff there, or 'clones' from putting insulting things there. Perhaps at 500 posts or so you could first get a customized title? ^^;
