    Change in Titles given on CW based on post count

    Is everyone else happy with the change in the title that used to be given after reaching certain number of posts -

    (By this I mean Cricketing God, All Time Legend, Match referee, 3rd Umpire,Umpire, Captain etc. etc. )

    I for one was looking forward to reaching my final and Ultimate Title of Cricketing God in the next few weeks , but suddenly find the rug has been pulled from under my feet, and have been rather unexpectedly and shockingly demoted to State Captain from All Time Legend !!

    But I was even more surprised to find that some still retained their previous exemplary titles. For instance - Paid the Umpire - still categorised as " All Time Legend" .

    I am shattered to put it mildly !!

    What does everyone else feel ?

    The new titles seem to unfairly affect long timers than the new members !

    More of an incentive to post more I guess. And I'm sure you'll get to Cricketing God eventually Jason.

    As I mentioned earlier, hasn't really effected me, I apologise if you consider this an ignorant view.

    I hadn't noticed it... I don't know what I was on before. What does that tell you of its significance?

    And why did you single me out??
    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

    Very true mate, at the end of the day, post counts are irrelevant, it's the discussion that matters.

    For sure mate, I guess there was no harm in Blaze or myself giving our two-cents worth though.

    Well I hope you're happy to be part of a lonely crowd then... no one else seems to care.

    I think the motivation behind the revamp was simply more users and more posts; the new ranks give people who actually care (you only?) something to cheer about.
