In reply to:

Indeed .

One consistancy has been that the number of posts required for the following title becomes higher and higher with each progression. The list below shows the number of posts required for attaining the next level.

5 posts to reach mortal with potential
15 more posts to reach grinning soul (20)
50 more posts to reach wide eyed peploid (70)
130 more posts to reach kook (200)
200 more posts to reach electric tomato (400)
300 more posts to reach crash course ravor (700)
400 more posts to reach cracked actor (1100)
500 more posts to reach stardust savant (1600)
900 more posts to reach acolyte (2500)
????

As you can see, a definite pattern was emerging whereby the threshold was increasing progressively by 100. However, the title acolyte appears to have broken that.

So you should aim for quality instead of quantity (unlike Kirk and I have done). I think we have a third acolyte in the I Was An Artiste -forum, either Coldfyr or Atonalexpress, but I might be wrong.

And Adam, why don't you simply change your title yourself every time you cross a certain threshold (since as you said once yourself, you can do that with your moderator powers).

Well, should this be the case, Claude is getting dangerously close - a mere fourty-one posts away. Once there was a time the most posts were help by TW's first 'electric tomato' Dara, who filled the MB with his immense knowledge and good humour. Then there was TW's first 'stardust savant', the perfectly respectable bowiefanpeter. How wonderful that joining these ranks shall by TW's very first 'cabbage', who filled the MB with... with... well, let's be frank, garbage.

Oh, what pride I feel that this is the man who shall break the next title first, and thus, more than any other user, TW is represented by a porn-posting man that flirts graphically with minors. Lovely.

Fourty-one posts. By my estimations this means he should crack it the next time he starts a thread.

The pic must be in .jpg or .gif format. TW will automatically resize your pic to 65 x 75 pixels, but the larger the original picture is, the more time it'll take to load, so it would be appriciated if you would make the picture 65 x 75 to start with (that'll make the picture also look better).

Now here’s an interesting question. I just noticed (maybe some sixth sense told me to go and look) that I’m up to 1599 posts and I wondered if there’s a change at 1600. I’m currently a cracked actor, but the question is, will I change into a stardust savant with my 1600th post, or my 1601st?

Edit: (It was 1600).
