    1.How do you guys get custom avatars? I have seen a lot of them on this board and have an image that I would like to make a avatar. In case you are wondering, it is of a TV character.
    2.What are the basic levels here? Like Untrained seems to be Newbie? Is there a help file that explains it? And can you get a custom title through long time experience or something similiar?
    3. Why are there no Arcanum avatars?
    4. Is there a help file explaining the rules & TOS?
    Just thought I would clear it up in one topic.
    Cheers
    Patrick

    Those in power are:

    God: Calis

    Admins: Jinxed, Jarinor, DarkUnderlord

    Moderators: Snowmane, Dragoon

    ... or so I think. :)

    Not quite nobodie. Here is the Truthâ„¢ in order of The Powahâ„¢ wielded.
    • Retired Dictator - Calis
      Currently retired. Pops in every once in a while to see if I've broken anything. Sees that I have actually done anything yet and leaves.
    • Emperor - Jinxed
      Numero Uno. Da Boss. The Don. Calis retired and left him in charge. What he says goes.
    • Code Monkey - DarkUnderlord
      Currently in charge of re-desinging the code for the site. Desiging about a gazillion different database systems and re-writing Calis' code (and in many instances, starting from scratch) to create a site that is leaner and meaner. ETA on new site: 3 months¹.
    • Administrator - Jarinor
      In charge of banning morons and physically harming grave-diggers.
    • Forum Moderator - Snowmane
      Mainly responsible for locking and moving threads and keeping the forum in check.
    • Newsie - Dragoon
      Posts news as well as interesting related content in the forums every once in a while.
    ¹It's been 3 months away from being finished since I started about a year ago and if I still haven't finished it 3 months from now, then you'll just have to wait for 3 months until I do.

    The current title ranks and posts required are as follows:

    Untrained - 0
    Apprentice - 10
    Journeyman - 25
    Expert - 50
    Master - 100
    Lord - 250
    Veteran - 400
    Water Merchant - 550
    Death Claw - 700
    Technological Marvel - 850
    Vault Survivor - 1000
    Nasrudin's Apprentice - 1150
    Safeguard of the Wild - 1300
    The Living One - 1500
    10th level Paladin - 2000

    There will be. I have other things to do though and no-one else has gotten around to extracting them, uploading them and putting them in.

    Not you. See above.

    The rest of your questions that I didn't answer are found in the FAQ.

    Because the stars were aligned in that order when the original admins (long may they live) prayed to the gods and checked the stars for guidance.

    Since he's nerfed,* Could I be something else, like a normal member? Oh, and why is it that after 1000 posts, you are eligible for a custom title, yet the ranks go up to 2000? :\ Oh, and what the hell is nerfed? I still 'ven't figured it out.

    Yeah I swear I read Jar telling you that it was annoying. Is that just your new "tyme"?

    Because not everyone gets a custom title/avatar at 1000 posts; only if they are worthy.

    Take me, for example; I didn't get my custom title/avatar until I was at about 2500 posts, and I probably still don't deserve it.

    I spent two hours arguing with a college professor (English Major, of course) about that, and he said that it *is* allowed by the laws of English, but it isn't something that's commonly done, or even considered. :) I don't think Jar has said anything about it, because I follow what he says, and either I've spaced, or he hasn't said anything about it... if you could find a quote of it for me, I'd quit with the double contractions, but technically there's nothing wrong with it. It's proper English. :)

    I still'ven't figured it out... but your signature was better as "I AM STUPID" It was like a big, red warning sign of what we would soon find to be true... :yep:

    The nerfed ranking is an easy way of spotting people who's posts you can skip if you don't have the time for stupidity. Eventually, nerfed people won't be able to change their signatures (from big giant red witty signs) but I have to get around to that later.

    Apparently you don't skip them anyway.

    It said that you can skip them, not that you have to.

    Nah, I think it might be fun to have one regular who's nerfed. It's like having a retarded dog who follows you around. It's kind of cute, in a drooling, neck spasm sort of way.

    You are right, MC, I DID tell him. The cunt has just conveniently ignored me is all.
