When you donate, you have the option of getting the title or not.
If you don't want it, you don't get it. If you do want it, you get it.

I object to the title thing on principle
In the Title Fairy thread there’s a big debate of what needs to be done to earn a title. Titles as donation rewards really messes with precedent there. So I’m always opposed to that idea.

By posting up to 10000 posts in mafia related threads
you can also get one if the title thread nominates one and the title fairy approves it

I'm confused. Do you want a custom title for doing nothing?

You've been on the site for less than 4 months, and have not posted in any discussion forum, at all. Do you expect the site to know about and have an appropriate, fitting, and witty title ready for every new user as soon as they join?

That would be faaaar too much work for DeathRowKitty to handle, imo

I was under the impression we could pick our own titles. That is what I thought the statement “titled are for everyone “ which wasn’t true.

No biggie

I'm not sure what part of "but also don't want that to affect use of the site itself (like, no levels for titles or admin rights or anything stupid like that, or exclusive games)" wasn't clear...

To be honest, I took pride when I received a title for my play. Though the people that gave it to me don't really post anymore, and I am not sure it truly applies anymore, I still enjoyed earning it.

I donate pretty often to the site. The site continuing to exist even with whow Mith may bee strapped for cash, is enough payment for me

Make it a unique group rather than a title.

We've been over that and your stance is pretty similar to mine.

Well yes. Same.


But a simple incentive could boost donation for people who aren't of this mindset. :P
