    I question the Broccoli theme, and DEMAND it is retracted in place of the vastly superior Cabbage.

    I'm a bit confused: I can't recall anyone having the ability to have a title (not that I would care if that happens) if they weren't some sort of a VIP.

    Several years back, a number of users did have titles without VIPship. The administration at that time decided to end the practice of allowing non-VIP users to have titles. We're discussing changing it back to allow users to have titles without VIPship, as they did years ago.

    FanForce has had non-VIP users with titles for years.

    Oh.................how the hell did I not notice that?:p Well, if this happens, can I change my title to something a bit quirky (and would that be an option for everyone?)? :p But, in a bit of semi-seriousness, the MS really should be discussing giving colors to everyone. Yeah, it would mean promoting everyone as a VIP, and it probably will never happen anyway (even if the user base dwindles down to 3 people), but I think that would something much, much better than giving titles to everyone.

    We're not discussing giving titles to everyone - just using it as another level of recognition, such as for regular icon makers (the most prominent of those who had non-VIP titles prior to the change).

    And style of titles will likely remain as they are.

    I remember when non-VIPs had titles. I don't think changing it back could hurt any.

    No new word on the TOR forum?

    Another quick update: I've stepped down from Fan Design as well, and I'm not a Manager Emeritus.
