This is fair, I'm open to brainstorming about this, but I just want to reflect that the torch for "ranting about marxism" on the site has definitely been passed. This isn't really a thing bro does but is definitely a thing wraith does at any given opportunity.

Think Wraith should maybe get his own title instead of getting Bro’s. “Expert Marxman” feels uninspired by itself, esp wo some ties to the sharpshooter allusion in the title. Remain happy reverting BRO’s title though.

Sure, so lets brainstorm. Theres a specific speakeasy post that I think sums up wraiths personality and I think would be a great jumping off point for thinking of a title, but I'm waiting on the user who posted it's permission to post it here.

Also I think it's pretty uncool of psyche to ask Bro directly if he wants his title removed (as that seems like what is happening?), saying it's weak, as I think that puts pressure on Bro to give up his title.

I think removal of titles should only be done by request of the person themselves and that the title fairy actively going to someone and asking them permission to remove it is a bit beyond what the fairy's role on site should be.

Their role is to approve and control new titles, not to go around old ones and make sure they fit their standards.

I just really think this is a rather bad precedent to be setting and that I find it a little dodgy of you to be doing that as a title fairy

Exactly. BRO knows what he wants. If he wants his title removed, he'll ask for it.

it's ultimately his call, but it's a communitarian institution he's not the only one with a vested interest in the issue
the motion has gotten the requisite number of nths and i disagree that there's anything inherently wrong with it

Nope.

People have asked for Bro's title to be given to Wraith? Sure. But no-one, with you saying that you don't want Wraith getting that title, has actually said "oh yeh well I'm still all for Bro outright losing his title even if Wraith isn't getting it".

Also I strongly disagree with the idea of a user being asked to give up a title they already had just because some people voted for it, but that's not the point at hand.

The people voting for Bro to "lose his title" were doing so because they wanted Wraith to have it, not at all because they think it is a weak title. The claim you make in that post that people have supported what you're doing is clearly incorrect.

sry, i suppose the topic we're talking about is sort of ambiguous let me explain
the motion with 7 nths involves removing bro's current title and giving it to wraith; all i've been saying lately is that i see nothing wrong in principle with any part of that motion and will implement it if the relevant parties consent
i've only lately suggested that maybe a different but similarly themed title would be better for wraith; it's so far resulted in no actual noms and is atm only more loosely tied with the status of bro's title

Ah, okay. Fair enough. It was that confused me with that sentence on the end, I thought you were advocating for/initiating a removal of Bro's title even if we got a different one for wraith if that makes sense. I think I'm alright with the concept of a title switch in that sense?

But I will anti-nom regardless as I feel it's a really lazy solution to giving Wraith a title.

Like, even something like "On Your Marx", a double meaning with how he's always prepared to start talking about his views.

I do not think Wraith deserves a title for spamming marxism all over the site, as it will likely encourage him to continue
