    I keep trying to toggle it on but it never appears, I would really like to display my guild title for all to see but it appears that it only shows up when in trammel probably because I am in factions? The problem is that I am red so I do not even have that option.

    Is there a way to display my guild title in Felucca, if not can it please be looked into and thank you!

    When a character is in Felucca, the character's faction title supercedes any other choices that might otherwise be available for the Subtitle line when you use the Titles gump on the context menu. The only way you can have your character's guild title show up in Felucca is to quit factions. It's been this way for years, from even before they added the titles context menu in April 2010. The only thing that's really changed in recent years for characters in factions has been the added ability to tell when a murderer was in an enemy faction. (I knew I had that typed wrong the first time!) Also, when that was changed (July 10, 2008), they also fixed it so you saw a character's and a pet's faction tag as part of their name.

    Faction rank is trivial though. Everyone needs to know what my guild title is its important.

    I miss the old school way people's guild affiliations were automatically displayed without choice.
    I don't remember when it changed but I do remember complaining about it at the time. It's when they put in this new title system where you can choose what title displays through the context menu.

    It just occured to me that I cannot even display my reward title of the Slime Hunter, dev's this needs to be looked into.

    Guild Title is easily more important then a Faction Rank.

    Quit factions or go to tram....... I know you said that you are red, but why do you have a red charatecter in factions? Is that just to gain justice virtue?????

    There are other problems that requires the developers time that have higher priorities than this one. I for one vote to lock this thread and delete it of posible.

    Maybe his character went red killing blues. I don't understand that criticism. Should people with red characters not be in factions? That's ridiculous.

    Aweeeee. Let me explain. Players that join factions should not care that their guild title is not displayed, if you care about your titles then you should not join faction. Truly faction players care more about their factions titles Game since it gives status within the ranks. Developers time is better spent looking for better solutions to major issues rather looking into guild titles, specially when you see your guild title when you are not I factions. I short, developer time is a waste in this matter since the problem can be solved by some as sime as quitting factions. Please let me know if it is still not clear.

    The fun thing about UO is that you can care about whatever you want. Faction status, your guild title, your slime hunter earned title, or whatever other title you've earned in the game ("Distinguished Library Contributer" or one of those Zoo titles for instance).
    There is no development time truly necessary for this since the system already exists in the game. Someone shouldn't have to quit factions or anything else they enjoy to participate in a system that already exists in the game.

    I was just asking the other day about the ability to perhaps be able to show some sort of an "alliance" tag.

    I mean we have a bunch of folk in our RP community all in smaller guilds but all allies.... but no one but us know who we are. If we do an event or something since we aren't all in the same guild it's hard for folk to know we are all together as a group.

    I need to be in factions to kill players in factions that use faction artifacts. If I cannot stat loss them then they get to use overpowered artifacts riskfree.

    About 2 1/2 years ago, the designers/developers came up with a proposal to make some rather sweeping changes to factions. Shade made this comment in the Factions forum the day those changes were announced (note: the bold emphasis is mine):

    If the devs were thinking back then of some way to let you have a legacy title of some sort while in factions, maybe what you're asking for IS possible. And maybe you're one of those people that post weird requests for the devs "out of the blue" periodically and then, lo and behold, the next publish has something in it to accommodate your request. (It's not that hard to spell your name backwards.)

    Hmmm...maybe? The dev team doesn't talk to most of us poor, unwashed players who support the game by religiously paying our subscription fees and who aren't EMs or ex-EA staff, but it's pretty clear they talk to other players and sometimes even use them to float ideas here in UHall to get input or to make it look like they're being responsive to player requests, no matter how obscure those requests are.

    Anyway, I'm bored so I thought I'd just throw a little something out there to liven things up. Maybe one of these days you'll get to show both your faction title and some other title too. Something to scare the little factioneers right out of their shoes when they mouse over your character and get to that last line, eh?

    My character name alone is enough to send factioner's worldwide into panic mode when it comes on their screen, the point is that I should be allowed to display my guildtitle out of pride for the guild I am apart of.

    I personally think anyone who is in a guild should be required to show their guild title and then if they want they can choose faction title. Lets face it if you are in Fel and XYZ guild is a raiding guild if a person sees someone in guild XYZ they can be ready to get raided. When it comes to faction titles they are broke. It really doesn't take much to get up to rank 9 or 10 in factions, exspecially with the healing change. Heck I think I have gained more faction points in stat because I stick strictly on heals than I have out of stat.

    Personally I would LOVE my title to show "Lord Farimir (Crew) TB Knight of the Codex, Knight of Britaina, Evil Slime Hunter, Legendary Necromancer.
