    I'm pretty sure it got turned on when the new bit-tech was launched... not totally sure though.

    @thecrownies: if it hadn't been turned on, you wouldn't have one either although i do agree that the noobs don't really deserve it but I'm happy I finally got mine.

    I don't see the problem really. Although i think that everyone should go through the 'what's a dremel' stage :D

    Custom titles & avatars have been enabled for anyone no matter how many posts you have since about 3 weeks ago :thumb:

    Aaw, i was waiting intensely for reaching the magic 1000 posts and earning that custom title.. Oh well.. I'll still wait for the magic number i think.. Just to prove myself worthy. :D
    Sidenote: The mods does have the ability to change the title yes/no?? revert to the "earned" state and if someone has been naughty or nice give them a custom title..

    IIRC the custom title was granted at 750 posts in the previous rules, not 1000

    Admin can change titles, mere mods can't though. I feel so inadequate

    Has anyone else noticed that the [color] BBcode tag has been disabled for signatures whilst YouTube videos can still be embedded? An inquiring PM has been sent in this regard.

    I prefered it the way it was before, it was good that only established members could have custom titles, it was an incentive to be good as well as something to look forward to, plus some of them were/are allusions to things that happened on the forums a while ago like inside jokes which added to the sense of community.

    Since Im a nosey, why was the post limit removed?

    As someone that tends to post only when I have something positive to say or something constructive to add that would be pertinent to the conversation at hand, I love it. I've been hanging here for awhile, and have said very little... I've made 25 posts in the past year... it might have been more than a decade before I hit 750 posts so I could have a title.

    Thanks!
