The Big Custom Title Fiasco Debate  

To be honest I'm not entirely sure at what point I became so obsessed with this issue. What initially began as me having a drunken whinge one Friday night has now become something of a bugbear with me. I want to have a proper discussion about it, then forget the whole thing and never have to speak of it again (except for maybe in years to come over a glass of brandy and a pair of slippers).

Right. My major complaints over this issue are twofold. Firstly, there have been major inconsistencies in the way people have got their custom titles, and secondly, I think the entire system needs to be examined as I think 5000 posts is too much to expect in this age of limited Bowie output, reduced posters and time served.

Anyway I think it would be helpful if we could do the following… (Some of this may be going over ground already covered, but I’d like to draw everything together here in a coherent way for ease of discussion.)

1) I'd like to hear from the mods what their views on the issue are. I'd like them to explain how they justify giving some people and not others titles before their time and why they felt it was acceptable to do so then and yet no longer. I’d also like to know if they have any consensus on the issue between them or if we’re dealing with “Loose cannon moderating” here. What’s the official line?
2) I'd like to hear from those already with custom titles on their views on the matter. Having had to make 5000 posts, do they feel it's only fair others should do so too? Do they actually give a shite? Are they already annoyed that some people bypassed the system?
3) What does everyone else think? Are there people who feel they deserve a title and if so why? Are there any suggestions of how we could establish a fairer system? Do you have any comments or observations on the issue? Do you think I’m a whinging fartbox who should shut the hell up? Feel free to express your views.

So let the debate commence. Lets get to the bottom of this issue.

You sit there in your comfort, you don't believe I'm real. But you cannot buy protection from the way that I feel!
