As the title says, if you want a custom forum rank (i.e. instead of “Nerd” you can request to be something else, for example), post your request here. If the request is appropriate, I will give you the custom rank. If it is not, I will have my minions eat your eyeballs. (Just kidding.)

Update: New rule – you need atleast 50 posts on the forums to request a custom
rank!

Oh thanks, BOSS. SurprisedSmile

The term Newbiee is, IMHO, more appropriate for those tagged “I am new
around here” don’t you think? Confused

I am desirous of shaking the NERD tag and, having in the past seen/used the term Guru in reference to your goodself, am thinking of keeping some similar monastical connotation e.g. Disciple or Novice.

Unless someone can come up with something better, I would be happier with either one of those – the decision though is yours. Embarassed

Thanks for the consideration. LOL. Smile

Hey! I’m “Old Fart #2″ now! And Locutus got his “Guru” ranking!

That was a cool surprise. Altho I think I’ll want the Grand Master rank when I reach that number of posts. I think.

And hey, I just noticed, Karen is now an Admin!

Wow, it’s turned into a day of big changes on dotTech!

Thanks Ashraf. Cool

@Wheezer: You are already eligable for the Grand Master Rank (250 posts needed for GM). Want me to change it back for you?

I didn’t realize I’d made the Grand Master level. Guess that shows how often I look at the ranking. Laugh

Would it be possible to have “Grand Master/Old Fart” ?

If not that’s ok, but I guess I’d kinda like the Grand Master ranking more.

Geesh, I sound so petty I’m making me sick…

Either way, thanks Ashraf for being so accommodating to your members. You sure don’t have to do this kind of stuff.

Hey Ashraf i have only just achieved Nerd Ranking (WOOhoo) but am still aspiring to grand master.

 

Any chance that instead i can have “Young Dude”

 

Thats pretty much all i want nothin special just because i have been around for quite a while now it’s just that i don’t post a lot.

 

If i could get then above tag^^ that would be perfect.

 

BTW: Its just so people stop thinking i’m a middle aged dude instead. I’m 15 people, i know just as much as you guys………sort of……..

Difficult, to be sure…..but it shall be done!!

This humble Disciple thanks Mr. BOSS for bestowing me the “new”title.

Congrats to the new Admin, Karen. (Phoenix deserves a chocolate waffle or something for services rendered in connection. Wink Laugh )

To Old Fart #2, Wheezer, seems you need to clean those reading glasses and dust off the abacus to keep tally on your Grand Master count. Or is it that you have too much smoke in your eyes – if so, get rid of the minkey. Wink LaughLaugh

Not sure if Locutus is human enough to be a Guru…Confused LOL Laugh

Yup.  In fact, this account is in Jean Luc’s name.  I changed it when I realized everyone thought I was a frenchman, not some Star Trek character.

New tags huh?.. if you ask my better half she would tell you “rocket” because you never seen my drive down I95 anyone doing under 90 should be way off to the right-side..Wink

In the end everything will be OK. If it's not OK then it's not the end.

Just want to “bump” this back into the Recent Forum Posts list. A few people have been asking in other threads, which isn’t bad, but it might be easier for Ashraf if folks ask in this thread.

Have a great day, or night, wherever you are! Smile

Very true. Admin’s seem to be missing this “duty” as they, no doubt, could easily re-direct such queries. Laugh

Problem maybe keeping a thread link (as Karen found out recently) so the poster could more easily find where it went.

As this is a recurring theme, maybe Mr.BOSS could add a button next to FORUMS at top of page or provide some other permanent visible means for getting here quickly. Confused
