I want mine just to say "Annoying Prick."

That about sums it up...

I'd also accpt "F S&W!"

Darn, I just checked the User CP section and that function is turned off.

1911Forum uses vBulletin as well and they have a box on the user CP page where you could change the member thing under your name to a catchy phrase such as Mike Irwin requested.

Devonai, you scale is slightly off. I would think anything over 1200 should convey homage,

how about Blackhawk's prodigy?"

"Resident Curmudgeon" comes to mind. But there are some individuals considerably more crusty than I lurking around these parts. Right, Mike? ;)

"But there are some individuals considerably more crusty than I lurking around these parts. Right, Mike?"

I prefer the term bitter myself.

It's a lot more descriptive.

I could change mine to whatever I wanted...but I resist the urge.

Soothsayer sounds nice though... ;)

Rewarding prolific posting doesn't seem as worthwhile as rewarding terse, laconic comments a la C.R. Sam. Maybe some people around here will log in to find their titles changed to something creative...but you'd have to become a legend in the minds other than your own for that...at which point fancy titles will be unnecessary anyway.

And all the THR folks said,

"Amen!"

Now how would C.R. Sam shorten the above post.......?

To simply "!"

Seems to me that terse and laconic, as attractive as they are, are also less important that simply correct and informative...

Informative and correct are good. But sometimes wrong is just as good.
