What is a user title? How do I change it?

What is a User Title?

usertitle.

A user title is the text that appears below your user name in posts and on your profile. It's just a basic reference for how active a person is on the website. Your user title will change as you reach a certain number of posts in the forum. The current ladder is as follows:
  • 0 - Just signed up
  • 5 - Is getting to know the place
  • 25 - Hungry for Knowledge
  • 45 - Appreciated Participator
  • 75 - One of the Regulars
  • 100 - Celebrated Poster
  • 250 - Sir Posts a Lot
  • 500 - StP Homebum
  • 750 - Can't get enough of the site
  • 1000 - Completely Addicted
Okay, I see some people have custom user titles. How do I do that?

Changing your user title is available to donators only!


As a donator, you may change your user title at any time. Click on your user name in the top right corner of the website and click the personal details link:

Changing your user name is available to donators only!

As of September 2016, all users can change their user name once every 90 days.


User names can only be changed once every ninety days.

First hover your mouse over your user name in the top right portion of the website. A drop down menu will appear. Click the "personal details" link.

On the next page, click on the "user name change" link in the left hand column. If you're having trouble finding it, here's a direct link.

Enter your current password in first field then enter the new user name you'd like to have. Double check your user name is the way you want it to appear before clicking the "save" button. You can only change your name once every ninety days, so be careful!

Users that change their user name will have their user title changed to 'formerly known as xxxx' for 30 days, and staff will have access to a list of your previously used names to prevent abuse.

How do I delete my account?

We're sorry to see you go, but if you insist on deleting your account, you should first know the following:

Deleting your account does not remove any of your posts on the forums. It only removes your account information, avatar, email address, and personal details. Deleted users' posts still appear with their former user name, and the user title "I deleted myself".

You have fourteen days to change your mind. After the 14 days is over, there's no getting your account back.

You may delete your account in your control panel, or follow this link. If you have any issues with this process, please contact us.
