Another Dumb Question

Recommended Posts

OK, it's time for another dumb question.

How do you make your tagline for the forums?  Like "Master Procrastinator" for example?

On the old forum, mine was "Psychedelic Purple Chicken" and I'd like to have that one back if at all possible.

Or is it one of those functions shrouded in mystery and only available to admins?

I believe this is another thing you should be able to do from your profile...let me see if I can do it on mine and then I'll come back and reply and let you know.

Lol, that was easy.

Go to your profile>edit profile>and literally the first option is "member title." Mine says "a muse that's a Jedi."

I don't see any option for "member title".  Maybe I've got a more basic version.  Is it a paid-for upgrade?

No, lol. There's no features on the forum that you have to pay for in order to use. Theoretically everyone should be able to do it, but maybe it's a setting that needs to be turned on or something in the ACP. Tagging @kherezae. Also, @Xanxa can you maybe give us a screenshot of what you're seeing? 'Cause as far as I'm aware, everyone should be able to change it, 'cause Kher would have, I'm assuming, turned on the setting so that everyone could do it and not just certain members, and I'm wondering if you're looking at what I was looking at.

I can do a screenshot.  But does that mean I have to upload the image to my Flickr account and then paste it here?  Is there a less convoluted way of posting a screenshot other than having to go via Flickr?

If you look at the bottom of where you type your post, you should see "drag files here to attach, or choose files" in the grey area. Click "choose files" and browse for the screenshot and it'll attach to the post.

Hm. I'm still not sure why you're not seeing what you should be, so I'll let Kher come and answer when she's able to do so. It sounds like it might be a setting issue, although I'm not sure if any non-members are having the same issue as you, so maybe not.

OK, I've done a screenshot.  Let's see if the drag and drop works.   This is what I see at the top of the "edit profile" section.

Huh. Sounds like it might be a setting that needs to be turned on, then, but it's kinda weird because I'd have thought it would have been turned on before we integrated. (Then again, we're the same 2/4ths of the staff team who 1. forgot to turn off the welcome PMs before actually make sure it had the right information and 2. didn't make sure the permissions were good to go 😛 so it's totally possible that we overlooked something again, haha. I don't even know where to look to try and find the setting, but I'll try and if not I'll leave it for Kher to get to whenever she has a chance.)

...okay, so I went in and I found what I THINK might have been the correct setting? Go ahead and go to edit your profile and see if you can do it now.

Okay, so it sounds like I found the right setting. XD It was set to 500 (posts) by default, but I lowered it to like...15. XD

Yep, the Member Title is there now.  It definitely wasn't before. 

A lot of trouble to go to for a line of text which tells people nothing of importance.  But that's typical of me. 

Can I get another confused face?  :classic_cool:

I still cannot see it. Is it behind a reputation requirement?

I made it so that you have to make 15 posts on the forum, just to see if that was actually the right setting, so that would be why- you have to make like 14 more posts before you'll be able to see it. XD

Fun anecdote about me being confused due to member titles: For a couple of days I assumed "Mistress of Death" was a new member who recently joined. I got suspicious when she said she had the second highest amount of content on the site in the reputation thread 😝

Lmao, oh silly Manu 😛

What's also funny is I've had that title since the beginning of WS so it's always been there 😛

@Xanxa why a purple chicken? Are we collecting a menagerie on here now? 😛 Or maybe a farm 😄

Purple is my favourite colour.  And the chicken part comes from my habit of being in a hurry.  As in headless chicken running around.  The psychedelic part is because I like psychedelic music and art.  No, I don't take LSD or anything like that.

 

Sheep and chickens?  Could be a farm, but we won't last long with those dragons around.

And penguins.  We love penguins.

I used to collect them - cuddly ones, carved wooden ones, resin or stone ones, even a Swarovski crystal one.  And the slippers.  Penguin slippers!  I had so many at one time and I  had to get rid of a lot of them (donated to charity) when I moved into a smaller place. 

There should also be reindeer on the farm.  All year around, not just for the festive season.

How does one pollinate a penguin?  Not wanting to get too ... erm ... technical or pornographic, of course.
