Yea, that 43 will soon grow to some 4 digit number... then you ask yourself, "I wonder how many hours I spent on POTN to get this far?" Doomed... HA! Someone from another thread described this place as Hotel California... I say it's Purgatory. Either way, I like it here!

Kind friends, the title weighs more on one's shoulder than anyone would really like. Sure, I'd want to be El Continental Moderator, but I can safely assume hardly anyone (Specifically the Title Fairy, She, The Title Fairy) would be inclined to do so.

I can also beckon and summon the TFs powers, and beg for a nickname of mine, like T-Bone, or Kosmo, But it will also hardly oblige.

To get a title, we must first understand the title fairy. We think of it as a floating little tinkerbell, wandering about the forums, and gracefully touching special members with the "Odd Title" wand.

Though it is as gentle and charming as that, the truth is also deceiving. The Fairy can suddenly go rogue, and Pull a Splinter Cell maneuver on any of us. Unknowingly watching us as we type, what we say, how we say it. And what we mean. And the Title change does not always arrive with the bright soft touch of a wand, but often from a silenced Mark 23. Feels like a baseball bat to the head. "What? Orinoco Flow Thief?... where did that come from?"... and though we might get chosen -or targeted, as you prefer- by the TF again, once we have been tagged, we mostly stay the way we are. But then again, assuming is the worst mistake anyone can make in the presence of the Title Fairy.
Find a way to say "I love Purina" masterfully fitted on a Wedding Forum Thread, and the Title Fairy might be breathing down your hallway, ready to strike.

The kiss of Stealth, I tells ya. The Kiss of Stealth...

THough these sound like pirate stories with a Canon touch, they be no fairy tales, they truly be the Fairy Digest Booklet. Keep an eye peeled for bad weather boys, I sense a change coming up...

So... How does one get the Title Fairy to appear? Leave CF card or lens cap under my pillow? :)

The TF works in mysterious ways and hit you when you least expect it. So be warned. Be carefull what you type and even what other say about you :shock:

In my head your voice is like that of the narrator from the movie 300.

Sorry for reviving an old thread, but I was searching for the different forum titles and came across this post.

Pretty funny to read the comment above and then look to find the OP currently has a 4 digit post count, 8 years later.
