As a few of you have noticed, the special forum titles (scroll to the bottom) have gone largely unused for far too long. Those who currently wear the badges have been around for nearly a decade, and few if any people have been "promoted" in recent years – at least until now. Starting today, we'll be handing out the following titles to deserving members: TechSpot Paladin, TechSpot Chancellor, and TechSpot Ambassador. To obtain these ranks, you must be a member for a minimum of one, two, or three years and remain in good standing during that time. Of course, not everyone who meets those basic requirements will qualify. The special labels will be limited to members who are active and ultimately make this community what it is. In other words, folks who post twice a year probably shouldn't expect a new title. Along with the existing ranks, we're happy to announce that some longstanding members will now be able to set their own custom title – be it "Omnipotent Ruler of the Universe" or otherwise. To receive a custom title, you'll need to be registered on the site for two or more years with at least 3,000 posts. We'll try to remain as flexible as possible with the personal titles, but obviously things like profanity won't be permitted. If you're currently eligible for a custom title and have something in mind, check your user control panel for the option. Feel free to post all questions and feedback here.
