User Title Suggestions

<font face="Times New Roman">
<font color=green>One of the main issues with the new system seems to be the titles that have been adopted recently. There is another post in this forum that is supposed to be for suggestions for new titles, but nobody is really suggesting anything. I am making this post in hopes that there will be some suggestions so we can come up with some new titles.

Lets try this to keep this somewhat on topic by making a rule - DO NOT post in here if you don't have at least one suggestion for a title. If you want to say something that isn't a list of suggestions, then at least throw one possibility out there, whether it sucks or not. I'm not looking to get complete lists, just suggestions for POSSIBLE titles. After there are some good suggestions that maybe a nice list can be formed and we can go from there.

Lets not even talk about how many posts someone should have to get to the next title, this thread is only for suggestions to add to the list of possibilities. Sound good?

Here are the current titles -

Poet
Show me the way
Getting clues
Got some clues
Junior Guru
Semi-Guru
Guru
Dr. Off-Road
I Live Here

These have been suggested -

Newbie
I can change my own oil
Riding shotgun
Spotter
Field Runner
Mud Racer
Rock Crawler
Trail Leader
Newbie
Journeyman
Member
Enthusiast
Addict
Old hand
Veteran
Exalted Pooh-Bah
Perpetual Net-Wheeler
Been around awhile
Senile Old Fart


I'll start with some new suggestions -

Pooh-Bah (Not new but I always liked this one)
Parking Lot Wheeler
Boggin' Fool
Canyon Crawler
Broken parts turn me on
Dreams about wheeling


I don't know if there's a character limit or not, and my suggestions suck, but lets see if we can build a good sized list up then narrow it down to only good stuff.

OK, that's all my head's able to give right now.

Damn - all but "Poet" were my suggestions [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]. I suppose they weren't really distinguishing - but hey, anything is better than a friggin poet!

No hard feelings [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Ah, well. Those were my suggestions.

Re: User Title Suggestions

<font face="Times New Roman">
<font color=green>Well there hasn't been alot of response to this post so I guess nobody is feeling creative. I took the liberty of compiling a list of what I thought were some good sounding names, and put them in an order that seemed to make sense. Let me know what you guys think. I tried to use suggestions from everybody that made them (not many, only like 4 of us). PLEASE make suggestions, whether changing the order or replacing and/or adding new titles. I added the numbers that I think make sense to change titles at too, but that's easy to change if it's not liked. One more thing - please be helpful, don't just criticize.

Re: User Title Suggestions

OK, I voted, and here's some "tweaking" suggestions.
Aired Down, Locked Up, and Spotter don't really show a "level of expertise".
I'm a little stumped for how to fix those 3 spots, but the list is starting to look a little better, isn't it?[img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Re: User Title Suggestions

Ok, I voted, too and while I really don't have any better suggestions, I'd like to mention that while I realize this board is predominantly male, there are a few gals here and, personally, I wouldn't want to be known as a "senile old fart". If it's a girl, can she be a fartress[img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]?

My only other comment would be that the number of posts a person can generate doesn't necessarily have any bearing on their level of expertise. There are folks who have been frequenting these boards for years and haven't racked up that many posts, but sure know their $hit. Could it be that they just don't feel the need to make a dumba$$ comment on every single thread?

Just my $.02. The suggested titles are WAY better than the defaults.... poet? yikes!

Re: User Title Suggestions

<font face="Times New Roman">
<font color=green>I think spotter shows a level of expertise, would you let a newbie spot for you? Generally a spotter has some knowledge... I agree with he other ones you mentioned, but they're fairly low level, mainly for "filler" so there are a lot of steps. My idea was to make more titles than before, so the next title up is fairly close, for those that care about that sort of thing. How about this one? -
