I am the current Title Fairy and am the sole judge on who gets a title and what it shall be. Titles should follow the policy below:

Oman's Title Fairy Policy

  1. The Title Fairy (in his position as mith's appointed official) is both a moderator of the Title Fairy Thread, and a moderator of titles in general. Title Fairy word is law within these confines.
  2. A title is designed to be an informal representation of a user's personality and individuality. It is also a badge of honour that the title-holder has become an individual within the community, valued by his or her peers. A title should be something that user is recognised by, including a lasting appeal, not a quickly waning fad. In layman's terms, one should say "Yup, that is User X alright!". It should be easily accessible to all people, with wittiness/humour being a benefit.
  3. Titles based on usernames (especially username puns) or avatars are not recommended. It is important to remember that titles are placed underneath the username and avatar, and the repetition is not required, and looks cluttered. Also forcing any suggestion, even the particularly clever ones, into a pun rarely become more personal, or more humorous. Avatars are also often transient and the title becomes outdated very quickly. However, exceptional titles containing these may still be awarded at Title Fairy discretion.
  4. The minimum threshold for a title is six months on site. This limit is designed to ensure that once a person receives a title, they are entrenched as an individual, and that the title they are nominated for is suited to their personality. This limit is for the person, so a change of username or making an alternate account the primary will not disqualify the user. By no means does reaching the required time instantly mean the user is deserving of a title.
  5. Any user can recommend a title for a qualified user. It is a simple request that extraneous titles are not suggested on a whim, as these clutter the thread. To recommend oneself for a title is bad form, it is a gift from the peers, not something to bestow on oneself. However, users are encouraged to become involved in discussion of their own title within the thread. Abuse of the ability to suggest titles, by suggesting insulting, or otherwise frivolous titles will result in that user's privilege being removed. Note that Site Ideas (including Title Fairy) is covered under the site rules, and abuse may warrant reporting to Site Admins.
  6. Titles are subject to the recipient's approval as well as the Title Fairy's, and may be rejected regardless of other support. Titles can be removed at the request of the user. This is an exception for "outdated" or irrelevant titles, and not a standard action.
  7. The Title Fairy Thread is for title discussion. Its fixture in Site Ideas, as opposed to General Discussion should indicate the administrators' view on how it should be used. While some light-hearted discussion is okay, a good rule of thumb is that title discussion should be the primary focus. Title Fairy reserves the right to delete posts, or split them to General Discussion as required.
  8. For any issues regarding the Title Fairy, Title Fairy Thread, or Titles, see first the Title Fairy then, for any issues not resolved at that level, see Mr Flay, then mith.

You may make suggestions for titles for people other than yourself here. You should not nominate yourself for a title. A title nomination will generally be ignored for a user with less than X posts in Mafia games (X is currently 100, but this may change). Reaching this number of posts does not entitle you to a custom title - users will nominate you for a title when something noteworthy warrants it.

Titles should usually be Mafia related. If you are thinking about suggesting a title based on an ongoing game, please wait until the game is over. If it's a good title, it will still be good a few months later.

In general having three or more people show support for a title is sufficient for the Title Fairy to consider it. A post whose only purpose is to nth a title will be deleted (Posts that continue discussion of the title, by either suggesting possible tweaks, or giving further reasons for the title may not be deleted).

You make a game where I'm a Vig and I'll reference you in a thread title. Until then, this is the Vi show.

Yup, I've considered a "legacy title" for Title Fairy. I also almost picked up "Disgrace to NK Immune Miller Vigs Everywhere" to reference my original Thok-mimicry when he was Title Fairy. To be honest I'd change my title if something came up, but it's a pretty high bar to jump.

That's almost funny.

I want to open up discussion on my title. I haven't been heavily involved in the wiki for years... does it still suit? I'm not fishing for a new one, just curious about the current, for now.

2nd - I'm not sure how "Flay" it is but it did make me laugh as a title.

With all of Flay's work, you really want to name him after a bitter old man with a phrase that he never uses?

That's a good point. But this is why titles brainstormed to fit an accomplishment are not as good as ones that are suggested after growing organically.
