So previously we had a system that placed a user title below your user name that was assigned based on how many posts you've made on the message board:

This system has now been changed to reflect how many 'likes' you've received instead of posts you've made. I've done this to encourage people to post quality content over quantity of content. The user title ladder has changed as well:

So if you're noticing a new title under your name than what you previously had, it's because of this change. It's a small cosmetic change, but I think this will work better in the long run. Remember to check the help section to see how user titles work!

We need to have a titles for negative ratings as well for people that have more negative ratings than positive ratings. Grand Theft Auto had the same thing on GTA Vice City And GTA San Andreas for the criminal rating. For every cheat you used you lost 10 points towards your "Criminal Rating" This is how it could work. User "train core" has 30 positive ratings and 10 negative ratings therefor his score is 20, you catch my drift? Every negative rating is minus 1 point while every positive rating is plus 1 point. Off course considering how everybody gives out more positive ratings than negative ratings nobody should really dip into the negatives, unless of course they are really getting on peoples nerves. Its more just a humor thing really haha

we do not have the ability to do this due to limitations in the forum software; specifically, the ability to assign user titles to users based on dislikes. we only have the ability to use likes, so unfortunately it's just not possible.

Goocho only follows me! Lol.
The canaries are a catastrophic area since yesterday, global warming ain't gonna pass tommorow, i'm scared of the fucking ocean in general, let alone fucking tsunamis and shit, and even if i'd stay off the beaches, the rains are so heavy that the trip seems pointless, someone kick me while i'm down
Fuck this shit, 3 months of preparing for a trip to the Canaries just went down the drain, my guitaritst bailed out of the idea to start a job and a "steady life", my bestie is getting all weird and i don't think she wants to go.
i was already preparing for going solo when suddenly life (fucking Shell and coal miners!!!) was all like "nooo of course you don't want to go"
going crazy..
i dont get people. i am heartbroken, society disappointed and road sick for the last few months.. i need help..
Happy 40th birthday, jonestown massacre.

You ever just look at a word and it freaks you out because it's spelled right but you start thinking on some meta shit how does this noise mean this concept? 'Smooth' freaks me out right now.
