Question Under-User-name Titles (+Quick Q X2)

You know, under your User-Name, there's this little "Title" or "Subtitle" that is your "Rank".

Is there a way to customize these, or what?

I noticed they seemed to be in the order of ranks.
I, for instance, am currently an AB Nerd. Heh. I'm not exactly thrilled, but, eh, I'll go with it.

However, it also seems like I've come across some people who have ones that look out of place, also.

Tracker, for instance, has "Seek and Destroy".

The Fifth Horseman has "Future Science..." and you know the rest.

I saw one that said "Game Wizzard", and another that said "Treasure Hunter".

Wizzard and T. Hunter could very well be part of the normal ranks, along with some others like "Home Sweet Abandonia" and "Newbie".


But unless getting 14,000 posts means you are a "Future Science" Person, then I think something is weird here.

I would suppose that High-Authority Admins get to customize it, but not others?

Slightly Off-Topic Quick Q (O.T.QQ):
What is the joke behind "10 Goto Abandonia- 20 goto 10"?
Don't get it...

Slightly Off-Topic Quick Q 2 (O.T.QQ2):
What is the next Rank advance post count from me (55)? As in, how many posts until the next rank? LOL still don't like being an "AB Nerd". Hehe...

Users who have reached 100 posts on the forum can use custom titles.

Additionally, administrators can grant user titles that include HTML code (ie: images, styling and colored fonts).

10 goto Abandonia
20 goto 10

is a set of BASIC instructions. Although I don't think it's written correctly. *shrug*

The next title you can reach is Game Freak at 100 posts.

Additionally to what Fifth said - you can edit this custom title under My Settings - Edit Your Details (on the menu bar above), if you're using the vBulletin version of the forum (advised, as it's lighter on loading).

Talking STUVANI STRIKES AGAIN

Game Freak... Much better!
Ah BASIC, the old programming language.


I'm making it to 100 hundred posts... sooner or later!
Too bad Bla Bla doesn't count :grin:
Alright...this answers everything.

One last thing: what's the deal with Vbulletin or otherwise?

As in, how and why would you use another version of the forum? Emphasis on How.

Well, that's it. Shower time!

A slightly inaccurate wording there.
Scatty was talking about accessing the forums through a frame on the main site ( http://www.abandonia.com/en/forum ) versus accessing them directly ( http://www.abandonia.com/vbullet ).
I don't think it actually does make that much of a difference, but you're welcome to try and compare.

Talking

Okay-- This is weird.

I always use the drop-down on the site home, and selecting "Forum" from it.

I was also getting Printing errors.

It would also always say "abandonia.com/En/Forum" and never change.

If I type in directly for the vbullet version,() though, when I click on threads and such-- it changes the web address

And-- Let Me Check--...


Yep. It fixes my printing problems.

So this brings up a new questionaire...
Why is the homepage linking to the Frame Version?


Dearly, WHY!?!?



Should consider changing this-- the frame is obviously inferior.

The "why" is simple enough: The (otherwise very broken) interaction between the site and forums automatically logs in users on the forum if they are logged in to the site.

Although that's only a guess. The people who gave us this little abomination have not been in touch for past half decade.

Talking Once Again, Dear Me.

Dear me, you do have a problem.
I think changing it and having users log in separately would be better-- but whatever.
For the pokes, who are the people who gave you this Abominable Snowman?

Lol LuLu comes on randomly and posts something-- It's like a "What!?! Oh, people are watching!" Experience.

As far as decades making you feel old, heh, well, in decades I'm 1.5, So I feel brand new!

If you combine Horseman's and Scatty's information, I think the fact is that you can customize your title on your forum options, but only after you have 100 posts at least.

It's correct, but doesn't make much sense, because the second line would never run--and so the apparently intended loop wouldn't occur. This would make more sense:
Code:
10 GOSUB ABANDONIA
20 GOTO 10
