Default Reward Titles

This just came to mind:

Look at WoW, WAR; both games offer quirky yet understandable titles to players. These are displayed over the player's head.

ie. In WAR, if you have an achievement of:

- Died 10 Times: "Pin Cushion"
- Died 100 Times: "Accident Prone"
- Looted 100 items: "The Pirate"
- Gained 1,000 influence: "The Peon"
- Added 5 friends to your Friends list: "The Friendly"

and very odd ones like:

- Destroyed 100 items: "The Litter Bug"
- Clicked on yourself 100 times: "Ow, My Eye"
- Died 25 times from falling: "AHHHHHHH"
- Died 50,000 times from falling: "The Pancake"
- Killed 10,000 players in RvR: "The Psychopath"

Having such titles issued may help to liven up the spirit of the community, such as "Ooh, you've got that title, I envy you/I will be the next to get it!"

Such titles can be used as rewards, replacing the "SotW Winner" or "Event Winner". Turn these bars into funny titles also helps in attracting users to different events/contests. The turnout rate would be increased.

I for one, would love to see such things in a forum. Fun, I guess.

Oh, and different events can issue different titles. For instance:

Week 10 SotW: "Title A"
Week 11 SotW: "Title B"
Banner Contest: "Title C"

What do you think, hmm? =)

It sounds very fun, but where would that go, in first place? Replacing the user custom title wouldn't work. @_@

It would be called user ranks.

Not replacing the user custom title function.

Whenever there are forum contests/events, notice the image/bar as one of the rewards? Yeah, instead of having the sort like 'Event Winner' or 'Best Profile', replace them with the titles.

If such a function exists, then yea I suppose this works too.

If not, then it would be replacing the images given out.

To be honest, I think the profiles got enough stuff thrown into them already.
If we had this, it be pretty cluttered IMO.

Then just change the system which the images are rewarded.

Hmm... take for example your MotM image under your forum name. Change that to some title like 'The (place title here)' instead of seeing 'Member of the Month'.

Get where I'm coming from?

Yes I do.
Although the award system requires that an Administrator gives the award to someone manually.
its not an automated system, and there are too many people to keep track of.

The awards system was made just for the reason you specified above.

Although they serve a little more purpose, then having them "just for fun". (no offense)

I support the idea of giving more people achievements, but when everyone has them... it it really an achievement?

Making it a user bar like SotW or MotM would require time, and it could be MUCH easier to get that one instead of a harder event one. Which leaves the people who worked hard and had a little bit of luck feeling like their achievement was for naught.

These achievements can be easily noticed upon looking at the member's titles.

Put it this way: Everytime one wins a SotW, they just get a standard SotW userbar. Lets say we have titles; this way, each winner yields a different title from one another, rather than having a forum with 100 SotW bars.

Having something unique as compared to another, 1) Reduces mundanity in the forum; 2) Encourages more participants; 3) Fun to see what each member has, rather than looking at 'SotW Winner' bars all the time

we like to keep a clean system, what you're suggesting can get messy and most of all, wouldn't make much sense, if you want a title, change your custom title underneath your forum ID

this will go on hold
