Is it safe to put in a early application?

Assuming the possibility the program isn't up in the time frame?

Will the bot have an alt that it posts from?

Maybe have a one month title suggestion restriction on users who ask for their title removed?

Maybe, but I don’t know. Feels like the wrong place to put the band-aid.

stops people from trying to force something through right away because the person that removed their title "deserves a title"
To be clear: this is not allowed

hello friends
so im finishing the titlebot this weekend and have done some planning around it

things it'll do:
- maintain the op
- regular "votecounts"
- passively enforce certain rules
- implement titles
- support brainstorming of new titles

The introduction of titlebot shouldn't be very "big" experientially for the thread, instead just consisting of a more thorough and less haphazard approach to the whole title fairy 'thing'.

At the same time, however, I may do a bit of an experiment. I might be diminishing my role as arbiter over whether a title is good or not, and instead focus on just smoothly carrying out my administrative duties for the thread and enforcing its rules. This shift will accompany changes to said rules, though, with the goal of us having a title process whose output quality doesn't depend so much on the whims/tastes of the current fairy.

For example, the importance of my input on the aesthetic quality might be reduced to that of a normal user (eg ill have an nth and a counternom I can use to exert preferences like everyone else) on the one hand, but further focus might be placed on anti-noms, waiting periods, etc as tools for ensuring that titles *do* reflect community preferences and not just a subset thereof on the other.

All of this, again, will be experimental, and could be partially or even fully reverted/modified as I become more and more horrified by the way you guys exercise your freedom we observe how these principles play out in practice. But I think that it won't really change much about how the thread works. Rather, it'll impact why the thread works.

If this gets up and running, after you stop being title fairy, will there be a need for a human title fairy?

this part is interesting.

will titles that previously received the requisite number of Nths but were rejected by your personal tastes be open for voting again?

so i'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess that this never happened
