    I'm just wondering what gives you the right to make this an "official" thread at all? Thats bugs me.

    shush gh0st, it sticks everything together so Munro can get a better idea for what people want. It might aswell be official.

    I'm sorry. Am I not allowed to make a thread 'Official'?

    It's not the right, it's the choice. Don't let that bug you.

    Me too. It's pointless. Does he have a letter from Munro.

    Anyway, I've voted for Sprafa's.

    outpost's idea - join date (well, I might be a little biased because I have been here for quite a while, but it seems like a pretty good idea overall)

    User-created titles that have a set of rules with them, so you don't get stuff like "DANIMAL SEXUALLY HARRASED ME!" or something like that.

    It's a great way of discouraging spam, no matter how much you post your rank won't change, and it encourages people to stay a part of the forums.

    But I like Spafra's idea number 2 aswell :D

    I'm not sure any of those can satify my user title needs.

    I think it should be called the "un-official" poll, seeing as that's what it is :p
    J/k :)

    Nice poll though, very handy in getting an overview of the (now hefty) official thread.

    I vote for weapons, as it's something new and refreshing from the now tedious monsters, as well as bieng a list that you can't argue about (it's pretty obvious that the rocket launcher is better than the pistol). I have just one complaint... crowbar should be at the top. Only a true gamer would want to face the Ninilath with only his steel spirit, iron will and his trusty, gleaming crowbar.

    As for the other ideas... most of them are just silly. If you're going to have Sprafa's random forum jokes, you should have included my picture Idea! ...not that it would be accepted or implemented... or that anyone will care... meh, I'm going to shrink into this corner now ;(

    Good poll though, /me applauds :D

    *edit* why is everyone's avatars negative? meh, I'll join in. Gives me a chance to flip this damn thing, too.

    Sorry, KoreBolteR. I could only pick the best of the best in that thread. Everyone couldn't be satisfied.

    Maybe if you've been registered for one year you get one word custom titles...then if 2 years you've been here you can get any custom title you want

    This is the way I understand it:

    Official (approved by a proper authority) is a relative term, depending on the subject at hand. I can't give your official opinion on something unless you authorize it. You can't do the same about my official opinion on something. HalfLife2.net can't make an official statement on behalf of joule. Unless it requires someone else's authorization you can call it official. In this case, technically, since the original post doesn't actually say the results of this poll will be used to determine the new user title system of this forum or that it is coming from anyone other than himself there isn't really anything that needs to be authorized. He doesn't say what the results will be used for or in whose name the offical poll was made. He could be using this poll to determine his official stance on this subject... in which case, it would be his "Official New User Title Thread/Poll" because he, obviously, has his own authorization. Now, if he called it "The Official HalfLife2.net New User Title Thread/Poll" that would be a completely different story... because it would be implying that he has the authorization of the staff of HalfLife2.net. Basically, he was either too vague or too arrogant.

    Wow, I'm a must...crawl...! That makes me feel so much better about life.

    ...

    *cries*

    That's a pretty good interpretation of forum life actually... you start as the optomistic, eager noob who speaks in short sentances and rarely pays heed to anyone other than yourself... but gradually climb up the ranks, having your optimism shizzled down my countless encounters that leave you bruied and unwilling... and before you know it, you're sitting in your room at 4 in the morning, posting in a thread about "user post counts", wondering why you're not in bed... or at least doing your art GCSE prep.

    Things like that are the exact reason the mods don't want it to happen.

    Or option number 10... My personal idea...

    It will take a while to set up... But I think will be the best.

    Have a new rank as many times as possible. Every 25 posts maybe? That leaves us with a ton of levels. Choose a random word for each (When setting it up, not the user choosing it). I think it would be neat :) People would never get bored! Might encourage spam though... ("OMG MUST SEE WHAT THE NEXT RANKING IS!!!")

    I hope everyone understands what I'm trying to say...
