I'm starting this thread for those who just want to pad their post counts in an effort to reach the ever-elusive 50. Be blatant. Be obvious. And above all else, have fun! (And do wander into the other sections of the Water Cooler on occasion, just for kicks. Thanks!)

<In best gameshow announcer voice>

Why, awatkins, you have one an upgrade in your member status. Your default title is now "Super Member". You also have the ability to change your title to anything you want* and can add a custom avatar to your profile. All this, simply for posting 50 times.


*Absolute Write Water Cooler is not responsible for helping participants think of custom titles. Any titles designed specifically to disparage or insult any individual or group will result in the loss of privileges.

Betty W01

If you ask her really nicely, maybe she'd make an exception for you.

Of course, you might regret asking her.

Don't say I didn't warn you.

Really.

(and a few green cards offered to Jenna might keep her ever-fertile brain from coming up with a really good title for you. Worth a try...)

A footnote to Betty's oh-so accurate comment regarding Jenna and folks who ASK for titles:

Can anyone tell me how to add a title? I can't seem to find the option. Or maybe it's not enabled yet. (The avatar came a little later than 50 posts, too.)

rhymegirl
02-17-2005, 05:10 PM
To change your title or create one:

I went under User CP. Then you click on Edit Profile. You should see a big box on the right that includes Custom User Title. You just type in the title you want in the long, thin box and click "Save Changes" way down below.

It's nothing against this thread. Really. The board admins just realized there was a loophole that would let spammers in a little bit too easily, so they closed it as best they could. At the old board, you had to wait a minute between posts. It got annoying, especially if you were a fast typist.

You shouldn't need to get to 50. Benefactor members get all the perks that Super Members do (plus some) right away, so you should be able to change your title, add calendar events, etc.

When you catch and past Maestro, that's when we start secretly monitoring the time you spend on the boards, contact your RL family and friends to make certain you're showering, organize an intervention to reintroduce you to the sun, and arrange for specially trained social workers to drag you away from the computer.

I'm starting this thread for those who just want to pad their post counts in an effort to reach the ever-elusive 50. Be blatant. Be obvious. And above all else, have fun! (And do wander into the other sections of the Water Cooler on occasion, just for kicks. Thanks!)

I was just following the rules of the post. I was OBVIOUS about my wanting to reach 50. I was very blatant (without any attempt at concealment, completely obvious). It was fun (and took a while). And I did wander into the other sections, and posted regular posts, like I do almost daily. If you think my posts were just spam, delete them. But, I was just following the rules of Birol's post...

And you have to admit, only someone who REALLY LIKED these boards would go to all that trouble to reach 50. :):):):):)
