I dont like these titles, I am no newbie and, since this forum is all about fairness and being welcoming to members we should abolish these derogatory titles.  >o<

I like the titles.  If you find them derogatory you have no sense of humor. ::)
I don't even care to find out what you're doing wrong, but I'm sure you're doing something wrong.

This is the way SMF does things by default. I agree, it's retarted. I just haven't gotten around to getting rid of it yet.

The title "newbie" can't be all that bad on a forum where the administrator is a "jr. member."

Why? I liked them.

I don't want this place to be exactly the same as the old FES. There were lots of things that needed improving. >:(

If there's one thing we don't need more of, it's recognising people for the number of times they've spammed The Number Game, which is what post counts often amount to. Post quality, not quantity.

I can't help but notice there isn't a lot of society debate on issues here, Parsifal? Can't you just admin and let the society discuss and choose in which direction it goes?
