Maybe one way to premote the title area to new players is to link this thread in mafia player's signatures.

So, panzer's posts @mathdino sort of cross the line and he already has a history of doing that in this thread. The reason they cross the line is because they amount to unduly personal attacks in a discussion about little strings of text under people's usernames. Two weeks.

I kinda want to warn others, too, to avoid critiques of users that don't bear directly and clearly on our discussion of titles. If someone is contributing in good faith to a discussion about titles, I don't really care much about your personal opinions about their mental state or personality or writing style, and I don't think most users care either. They're channeling what they have for the community and I'm glad for it. Keep criticism focused on the substance of their ideas and maybe the workings of the subforum, and make use of the many tools available for disengaging from users you have a problem with. MafiaScum is an internet forum, and that means your posts are always going to be adjacent to ones by people you don't necessarily know or like.

In post 5317, Mathdino wrote:@Psyche: My concern is still in that this forum is dominated by people who no longer play mafia, and don't know about the current generation's gimmicks, memes, playstyles, contributions, personalities.

Titles however long ago were basically given for "those moments" in mafia games that everyone knew about because everyone played mafia. Because people don't, I think there's unfair weight against the current gen and in favour of Speakeasy related things. Things like
- RC's title HAVING to be pushed through (because people don't like him) when it's just as good if not better than Pine's "In Your Head" for being good at scum
- Discussion on Mulch's title fizzing out and immediately pivoting to Ari relationship thread memes followed by yet more ego fights

I'm here because I want more titles under the names of people that I play with. I smile when I'm playing and notice RC's title or Creature's title ingame. I really don't see many tho.

I hope people take this criticism seriously, but it's my position that it's the function of the thread for disagreements about what deserves a title to be hashed out through nths, anti-nths, flat-out ignoring of noms and discussion surrounding those. The community has to decide for itself what deserves a title, and that includes people from the Speakeasy. But indeed, maybe the thread should be sanitized more thoroughly for the sake of people who'd like to participate in these calls but are relatively timid.

This sig used to be a bunch of quotes about how great I am, but then I realised that that was obvious.

I see the appeal in it but Idunno if I directly think of Mulch when I see Blast Processing.
I think gotta go fast is a lot more relatable to Mulch and as soon as you see gotta go fast you would immediately think mulch

Plus gotta go fast is more associated with hedgehogs
And hedgehogs are cute
And Mulch can be extremely cute sometimes
He can also be extremely moody
Like hedgehogs.
Are hedgehogs extremely moody and get upset randomly?

Well the whole point of "blast processing" was to make Sonic go fast.

Or something.

I don't know if it's worth saying at this point, but of all the titles suggested for Mulch I thought Gotta Go Fast was absolutely perfect. Like the reference feels clear and it's got a number of things relevant to Mulch tied in there. None of the other suggestions hit that for me.
