Fine I turned this into a poll, who wants people to get titles, who thinks it's dumb

It honestly depends on what would be considered "old guard." Although I will admit I was mildly disappointed I never got my custom title on the old forums...

I'm a fan of making the ability to change your title based on post count.

Given that we haven't had any new members since the forum (re?)opened, giving titles on the basis of being a VIP on the previous site seems entirely unnecessary. If, in the future, we actually become a community in our own right I'm totally for it, but right now that is just needless exclusion.

a system is in the works, both for custom titles and for unique name colours,

however to answer everyone's real question: no you don't get to have a unique title or name colour just for the hell of it. The problem is like Herald said. It's needlessly excluding any new members, and any members that were hardly active on the old forums but are active now will be excluded as well. Similarly, that'd give several old users titles based on their previous experience even if they have practically no posts here.

Titles and name colours are supposed to mean something, it's not just for cosmetic appeal or coolness points. If every user got a title for joining, it'd mean nothing, and more importantly it would be a pain in the ass for me because I'd have to make 60 different unique titles and ranks for each person. It's not even remotely sustainable.

tl;dr - new site means blank slate and that means you have to work towards your title again. Sorry for everyone who transferred over, but look on the bright side; here's some motivation to get people posting.

That's perfectly reasonable. Is there some sort of established baseline that equates to a title? So that it doesn't come across as arbitrary?

If I remember you got a title when you hit a thousand right? Or was it five thousand?
