Possible change to Custom Titles (IMPORTANT)
« on: March 30, 2020, 01:49 pm »
So, Bricc and I have been talking, and Bricc thinks that perhaps it'd be a good idea to make it so Custom Titles can only be given by staff members, just like before the .TK forums. Now, the reason why Bricc wants to do this is because we don't really have any options when it comes to prizes for contests and what not, given the fact that awards no longer work.

However, before any changes are made, I want the input from you all, the community. What do you all think? Do you think this is a good idea? Or, would you rather keep it so Custom Titles can still be given even if you're not a staff member? Please vote.

That's what Bohobes look like.

Glad my suggestion has been taken into consideration. If this doesn’t get changed, what do you guys think could work well for forum-based prizes?

Let this be. This is a wonderful idea of letting people have their own custom titles. It reduces fuss as they do not need to go begging to staff members to change them. Also if they need immediate change and no staff is online, they need to wait. But keeping it like how it is now will solve all problems.

Forum Based Prizes should be brought back. Yes, including the birthday prizes. (Awards) I only hope you mean awards

Ah, you must not know, then.

They don't work. Y'see, if they were to be implemented, it would decrease security, so that's why Geoff hasn't put them back. Sad, I know, but nothing we can do about it.

You mean, the color of the text in their posts is different from everyone else's?

Anyone can change the color of the text in their post by selecting "Change Color".

That's what Bohobes look like.

Free Custom Titles were one of the fewest of advantages in this forum, please don't remove that, we need some liberty and freedom

I see, but he's already seen multiple times it said that main site will (probably) never be updated again.

Add on to that, and there aren't even "Custom Titles" on the main site, so I don't know how he could've gotten confused.

That's what Bohobes look like.

Okay dokay it's clear that most people want the way the Custom Titles work to stay the same, so I'm going to end the poll, unsticky this thread, and lock it.

That's what Bohobes look like.
