    I could have sworn my account got purged at least once in the past, but I guess not.

    The account I post on from home has the same title. Funny, sad and a good time all bundled up in one.

    Over the years I've seen many come and go... But it's been a wonderful wild ride. I've enjoyed most the DEV's they are wonderful... I've been happy for some who've posted pictures of their adorable children... I've cried with others when they've lost a loved one. Prayed for some... because they were going thru some tough times. Helped a great many... Been here to welcome many home again.... and sometimes again and again... *smiles*

    It's for the most part a most enjoyable community. WoW has nothing on UO or it's players.

    I'm kinda worried the titles will cause a bit of a problem in the future. It might cause the same thing that keeps new players away from UO. New player logs into UO, sees everyone with hundreds of millions, even billions, realizes they will most likely never have that, then quit. The future could be, new player joins Stratics, sees that practically 90% of the community has veteran titles, and badges, and post counts, realizes they will never be considered "equal" until they either get a high post count or get a title, then quit.

    I like titles, alot, and they were a wonderful idea to reward the community, but it would be a shame to see people get discouraged by them.

    Personally, I used to see the moderator and admin titles years ago and it would grab my attention, like they are supposed to.

    Now I don't even see the titles, I've become so accustomed to the endless rainbow of color many people have under their name.

    Piffle. If people are just here for forum titles who needs um? I've been posting here since the 90's and I don't mind an iota that ive lost like 8k posts and 8 years, and whatever kudos those bring, off my account.

    I do actually find them a bit annoying, everyone having a dozen colored ribbons on the sidebar. If I had the option to turn them off I would.

    Taste the rainbow! I like my rainbow... but if it vanished that's ok too. I do kinda miss the more special tags for Mods, DEV's and such.
