    Custom user tags

    I think this would be cool instead of saying"U19 Debutant" we could have our own tags.......eny chance of this happening

    It happens currently but only when you have more than 30,000 posts.

    Because it would be far too much of a hassle for James, I assume. Besides, a custom tag is something that has to be earnt as far as I'm concerned and it shouldn't be dished out to anybody that signs up for the forums.

    Yeah, as Perm said - it's an incentive, and a good one IMO.

    Although as I found recently, having "Cricket Web Staff Member" feels far better than a custom title.

    EDIT: and TBH, I'm less than sure about your sig. I'm no fan of Christianity, personally, but I can't see that that's appropriate.

    EDIT2: I sound like Rodgie there...

    It wouldn't be a hassle at all, actually - you can set the option for users to do it in their User CPs...

    Anyway, not really a fan of custom tags ITBT - and I'm not even a fan of the tags we have. It should just be blank IMO, excepting of course special tags like Owner, Content Updater, Staff Member, Banned etc...

    While it's not a bad idea in theory, I doubt it would be that easy to change it with vBulletin, othewise it would probably be an option. Not completely sure about that though.

    Ah okay, I wasn't sure, not having much experience with forum moderation or things like that. I agree with you regarding the tags, it is a little bit of useless text I feel, although I'm sure others will disagree.

    Staff members are not moderators. You don't have to change it unless James or one of the mods tell you to - and FTR you shouldn't have to IMO.

    Yeah, certainly, not my place to give orders - but I don't think it's wise to have that displayed myself. If I were James I'd not want to see that on the forums.

    There is an option in vbulletin that allows you to enable custom user titles, but as Perm said, it would require more moderation time due to the possibility of people abusing it. That's more or less while it isn't enabled.

    Yeah, exactly - think how much time it'd take to go around removing the "****ing **** ****" from every title when some clever, er, Scallywag decided to have a bit of fun...
