    I think it's high time we update our Co8 user titles to reflect some more ToEE-ish sensibilities. (Green Dragon? Mountain Giant? Where? ;))

    To that end, let's have some suggestions from the community. Nothing silly please; let's just try to move to a system dealing with more common ToEE/Greyhawk entities as appropriate for your level.

    I'll post the current titles and criteria below:

    1. Goblin Raider, 0 - 24 posts
    2. Hungry Ghoul, 25 - 49 posts
    3. Giant Crayfish, 50 - 74 posts
    4. Lizard Man, 75 - 99 posts
    5. Troll Berserker, 100 - 124 posts
    6. Ogre Chief, 125 - 149 posts
    7. Hill Giant, 150 - 174 posts
    8. Mountain Giant, 175 - 199 posts
    9. Green Dragon, 200 - 249 posts
    10. Demon Lord, 250 - 3,499 posts
    11. Circle of Eight Wizard, 3500+ posts

    What I'm looking for here is a good, common and recognizable representative entity within the context of the ToEE world for each level you achieve. For example, Goblin would be good for the first, as opposed to, say, lesser dire mealworm. I'm also open to adding more titles and adjusting the post criteria, as it seems rather subjective at the moment. e.g., figure out a reasonable progression of milestones on a mildly upward sloping graph, such as 1-50, 51-150, 151-300, etc.

    The only thing I think we should keep no matter what is Circle of Eight Wizard for the high end.

    Let's hear some suggestions! :thumbsup:

    So Gaear, since a change seems to have been implemented, can you tell us what you settled on?

    Yes! I started looking at your suggestions, Daryk, and ended up going with what you see below. You were helpful in that you at least put me on the right track. Basically it is a simple system of a mild increase in post requirements as you advance, with 21 categories starting at 0 and ending up at 5000. (So all of you have something to shoot for lol.) After I settled on the progression, I simply went to the 3.5 SRD and searched for monsters by CR and picked commonly seen or understood ones from ToEE, with lowest CRs being low end and highest being the high end. In most cases, there is one monster/title per CR. Toward the higher end the CRs become more spaced out.

    1. 0 - Skeleton
    2. 60 - Zombie
    3. 140 - Kobold
    4. 240 - Goblin
    5. 360 - Hobgoblin
    6. 500 - Orc
    7. 660 - Lizardman
    8. 840 - Gnoll
    9. 1040 - Bugbear
    10. 1260 - Ogre
    11. 1500 - Gargoyle
    12. 1760 - Owlbear
    13. 2040 - Minotaur
    14. 2340 - Troll
    15. 2660 - Lamia
    16. 3000 - Ettin
    17. 3360 - Hill Giant
    18. 3740 - Vrock
    19. 4140 - Hezrou
    20. 4560 - Glabrezu
    21. 5000 - Balor

    I of course broke my own rule and didn't retain Circle of Eight Wizard. ;) I also didn't add any further descriptors like "raider" etc. If anyone has suggestions for those, I'll listen.

    What's shaking, Zebedee? Long time no see.

    Well, since you're already past 20, there's no reason to stop at 21. I think the next few could be:

    22. White Dragon
    23. Hextorite
    24. Slaver
    25. Circle of Eight Wizard

    That rounds you out at nice even 25.

    28. 7560 - Hextorite
    29. 8120 - Slaver
    30. 8700 - Circle of Eight Wizard

    I love the idea! Lol, "2100 Troll" sounds funny given the ambiguous possible interpretation of the word "troll" in the context of a *cough* user title *cough*. :) A person who trolled for 2100 posts and hasn't been banned for it is a hero troll. :)

    @ Zebedee: Hiya! Glad to see you around! :)

    Pardon the necromancy, but I noticed this thread isn't visible in the regular forum (you have to search for "user titles" to make it show). Perhaps it should get a sticky?

    But all these titles are negative, how about a few positive ones.

    2000 - Light in the Darkness
    3000 - Paladin of Truth

    You get my drift. ;)
