Hello, and welcome to the title thread. I'm mastina and I will be your Title Fairy this evening.

What is this thread for?
This thread is for titles, of course! Titles are those bits of text or occasionally tiny images that go below usernames. Most users have default titles that are based solely on their post count, but users can also be given special custom titles. This thread is for those special custom titles.

How do people get these titles?
Overall, it's quite simple:
  • Someone nominates a user for a title
  • A bunch of users agree that it's a good title, usually by posting 2nd or 3rd or 8999th or nth
  • I agree that it's a good title
  • The user says that they want the title
  • The user gets the title

In practice, it can be a tiny bit more complicated and not everyone will agree on whether or not any particular title should be given out. For a good title nomination that receives negligible resistance, 5 users agreeing with the nomination should usually be enough, but other factors may be taken into consideration. For more controversial titles, support from additional users and a decent explanation or two will go a long way. "Anti-noms," while not official, will be taken into consideration if they come with decent reasons or if there are simply a large number of them. I will be more likely to approve titles that receive greater support, but support alone does not guarantee anything. If I reject a title nomination, I will do my best to be clear about why.

Which titles should I nominate?
Custom titles on Mafiascum are generally considered to be gifts from the MS community. You should nominate people for titles that you think they would be happy to receive as gifts. A title should reference something special about who the user is or something they've done on site and it should do so in a clever or interesting or fun way. Wordplay is a common tool for making this happen, but there's no one set model of what a good title must be. For examples of titles that have been approved in the past, I would recommend checking out some of the recent Title Fairy threads, linked at the bottom of this post. I will also note that, while titles based off of MS-related incidents that occur off of the site may be accepted, they will be held to a higher standard.

Which titles should I not nominate?
You probably weren't asking this and most of this section should be common sense, but it seems important anyway. You should not nominate:
  • a title for yourself. You will not receive the title and other users may find it annoying that you tried this. If there are title nominations for you in consideration in the thread, be careful about giving too much feedback or input - while declining a specific title or set of titles that's currently in discussion for you is perfectly fine, going too far beyond that may cause users to become uncomfortable with the current proceedings.
  • a title based on an ongoing mafia game. No matter how great the title is, it can (and will) wait until the game finishes.
  • a mean-spirited title. Mean-spirited titles will not be given out.
  • titles based solely on usernames.
  • titles that could equally well apply to a large number of people. Titles are meant to be special and unique.
  • titles for users who are very new. While there's no set rule for how long a user has to have been on site in order to receive a custom title, someone who's just finished their first newbie game and posted nowhere else on site probably shouldn't be getting title nominations.
  • a title based on something that is clearly bad. No titles will be given for self-hammering as town or eating babies.
  • a title that you expect to lose relevance very quickly. An inside joke that will be funny for 2 weeks and then never heard again does not make for a good title. I do, however, want to emphasize that titles don't need to last forever. People can and do ask for their titles to be removed and people who already have titles can be nominated for new ones with or without first requesting to have their old titles removed. Just try to be reasonable.

What are the rules here?
The title thread is supposed to be a fun and light-hearted thread. Occasional joke nominations and small amounts of off-topic posting that come about naturally are perfectly fine and often enjoyable, but if it gets out of hand, I will start deleting posts and if I get the sense that you're using this thread as your own personal off-toipc shitposting thread, you very well may be warned or temporarily banned from the title forum. Aside from that, don't be a dick and follow site rules and we'll all get along just fine.

What is different to my reign?
We'll be having Title Events once every three months!
What are Title Events?
Title Events are events where the rules for handing out titles are in some way modified. During these times, normal nominations may still be made using the usual rules, but in a special event title thread, there will be titles handed out by a modified metric.

The events are as follows:
December/January 1st - January 31st: Abuse of Power Secret Santa - Ongoing!

April 1st - May 1st: Entitlement 2019

July 1st - July 31st: Title Troll 2019

October 1st - October 31st: Title Council - 2019 (failed)

Fairy Feedback:
This thread is specifically for nominating, discussing, workshopping titles, etc. If you instead have or want to discuss ideas, comments or suggestions about the titling process in general, head here, for how the process could be changed, feedback on events, etc.

In post 15, Kublai Khan wrote:In fact, if his focus is specifically only in mathematics, then he's specifically not a polymath.
Would you say that implosion's a man who qualifies as "a person of wide-ranging knowledge or learning"? In my experience with implosion, he fits that descriptor, while also having the focus on math. Polymath has a set definition which he fits, but the wordplay's there off of a mathematics specialty as well, which is why I like it.

When most people read "polymath", they're not going to think 'a person of wide-ranging knowledge/learning' even though that's the word's definition; they're going to think more along the lines of 'really good at math'. And implosion fits both connotations (both the dictionary definition and the perceived meaning), rather than just one.

the titles she did give are still VERY relevant today, and I don't get why people are trying to 1-up someone who was trying to encourage coming up with perfect titles for individuals.
All of those titles fit the people given to them extremely well and I honestly don't think they can be 1-up'd at this time.
Well-said.

I don't see this line of discussion producing any titles better than the ones already given.

I'm approving this.
The only question would be upper or lowercase m. While I personally favor lowercase, in this case I'm going to defer judgement to the person who'd hold the title; am contacting implosion now.

In post 61, Alisae wrote:mastina how many noms until you accept soap box
A user should not be involved in the discussion of their own title, the title fairy being no exception.

However, with the number of nths given, I feel it is appropriate to weigh in on the subject:
I have absolute apathy towards the title; I feel nothing about it at all. There's a total indifference about it. I don't love it, I don't hate it, I don't like it, I don't dislike it, I just am utterly blank about it. It doesn't resonate with me, but it also doesn't have dissonance with me.

I wanted to actually do some research on the title; I found the original area for the nomination and read it up to the point where people went off on a tangent for some other title (there actually isn't that much on the subject then), but I believe it was revisited at later times, and those're times I can't instantly locate. I'm specifically looking for the strongest supporters of it and their reasons why, and also the strongest opponents of it and their reasons why.

The strongest reason I have available is Aristophanes's writeup, but I want to hear more feedback from others before I approve it as a title.

The main question I'm looking to get answered is, "If someone else were the title fairy, would that title fairy approve this title using the metrics I am using?", and I'm not sure the answer is yes.

In post 80, Alisae wrote:I’m not sure let’s be reasonable fits cerb as a person as well here, but certainly captures the hydra aspect that the trait being titled.
Oh it absolutely does; there's not a single player on site I associate with reason more than I do Cerb. I can't speak for how well it applies to him outside of mafia, but his mafia persona is the definition of reasonable.

It's not just a gimmicky hydra title theme. (That said, there's precedence for a title based off of a hydra gimmick theme, so I'm not opposed to titling off of one!)

Even just on his main, he is someone who is insanely reasonable--diplomatic, reserved, logical, methodical. I call him a Co-King of mechanics, a title I bestowed to him off of his immense skill at making mechanical solves for games, a process which he can reason through like no other.

It is absolutely title-worthy; the only question would be what iteration of the title theme is best.

These standards still apply; avatars are included in "lose relevance very quickly".

I'd like to have some more discussion on Technical Support for MathBlade--specifically, is he someone who when you think of technical support on mafiascum you uniquely think of him? I'm honestly not sure and I want more details there.

Due to certain technical difficulties, may not be able to remove all event titles that need removing, e.g. brassherald's. But, most should be removed now.

If you had something special underneath your username before (e.g. a banner, a title) that I did not place back, let me know. (I tried to have proper documentation, but it's always possible I missed something.)

Also, I'm updating the OP with the event titles that were approved.

As the title fairy, not quite sure 'incredibly bold' is the best we can do, but have to say that I do quite like it--and even if not that exact title, something along those lines? Hell yes, would greatly encourage discussion there!

Sure would, but I'm just going to say "no" to the idea of putting a title in bold, that has as part of its title, "Bold". I.e., I wouldn't approve Bold Choice but would approve either Bold Choice or Choice, as a hypothetical.

Pick one, don't force both in because if you force both in...it's...well, forced.

In post 239, animorpherv1 wrote:First thing that comes to mind for Taly is Incredibly Bold. It fits his personality pretty well as well as his bolding people's usernames thing.
This title is neither a turn of phrase or wordplay or clever in anyway. Its just a statement. It'd be like offering me the title of "This guys a pedantic dickhead". At least this one comes with an explanation of why bold should be associated with Taly, even if no one has explained what makes Taly a "bold" person personality wise
Respectfully, I disagree with it not being wordplay; Incredibly Bold is a fairly common phrase, but in this case is incredibly descriptive of a key part of Taly's personality. Nobody else bolds things in the unique way he does, and so yes, he is incredibly bold compared to any other scummer. It's his signature shtick and I associate random boldness with him more than I do any other scummer.

There is however, a valid point.
Taly is not someone who I'd define as being a bold person, as in, "(of a person, action, or idea) showing an ability to take risks; confident and courageous.". He might have bold moments, but being a bold person is not a defining characteristic of who he is. The title of Incredibly Bold might not convey the intended meaning, as it could be construed as the definition above, rather than the intended definition.

In post 253, Elbirn wrote:
In post 242, Errantparabola wrote:what about "favors the bold"
do you think that it takes away from the double meaning of "taly is bold"
This is the closest to being clever anyone will get with this current train of thought
Honestly I don't see the appeal of that at all. I'd need to have it explained more.

Another one of the titles I feel is better is this one:
In post 247, Inferno390 wrote:How about Going for the Bold?
Going for the Gold + Bold?
Because it is a turn of phrase turned into a pun and communicates the title's intention fairly clearly.
This is a title that I feel doesn't leave what Taly's thing is open to interpretation. Bold, here, is presented not as an adjective, but as a noun, which is the intended meaning.

So more or less, I'd encourage feedback on this or a similar one, a title which emphasizes Bold as a noun, not as an adjective, preferably with wordplay/puns/etc. involved.

You're gonna have to lobby REAL hard to convince me of this considering that I wasn't at the meet and lack context.
Plus, prior title policy for meet-related titles is basically that they are held to an incredibly high standard if they are allowed at all, sooooooooo.

It's tied to the banner; can't remove it without removing the banner, and can't give you the banner without the title because that particular banner doesn't exist outside of the title right now. (Basically if I removed your title, I'd be giving you the old banner rather than the appropriate new banner.)
Same reason brassherald still has his event title; I can't remove ",Esq." without removing his Player's Choice banner which doesn't exist outside of the title.

In post 296, Alisae wrote:I think I like "Of Habit" more then "Of Havoc"
I kinda think of Creature's explosive posting to be more calm and uniform then to really "create Havoc" since it doesn't realy change much, he doesn't really write a lot of words, and its more simple, while havoc kinda feels like it belongs to a more chaotic posting style?
This is kind-of where I stand.

When I think Creature, I don't think that he wrecks havoc. He's known for being obvtown, and he's known for not being as competent as scum, and he's known for posting a lot, and he's known for being accurate, but none of those, not even in tandem, tell me 'havoc'.

However, those traits in tandem do tell me that he's a Creature Of Habit, because he is known for being obvtown, known for not being competent as scum, known for posting a lot (to the point where he's the go-to reference for hyper-posters as town), and known for being accurate.

In post 304, Psyche wrote:sorry but what does that have to do with habit?
Everything?
Those are defining traits of Creature; they are things that he is widely famous for. Across multiple games, Creature has gained the reputation for those traits. He is a strong creature of habit, because across endless number of games, he has those same trends. Posting a lot as town; being obvtown as town; being fairly accurate as town; not being as great as scum.

His routine is one which is incredibly predictable and easy to lock down on.

That having been said, the concern about it not being something which conveys those habits is a good one.
I would say Creature is a creature of habit.
I wouldn't say the title Of Habit conveys that he posts a lot as town, is obvtown as town, accurate as town, and not as good as scum.

I also wouldn't say the title Of Havoc conveys those things, either, nor does it convey the habitual behavior.

I honestly, legitimately, believe that it's a good title for Boonskiies. The pun IS only the first level to the title making the obvious reference; it is genuinely something I feel reflects his presence on the site as both a moderator and a player.

I don't really see the direct personality connection either or how platinum relates to creativity in mafia setup design (i guess winning scummies?)

There's very likely enough there for a title but I'm not sure what it'd be/don't know wgeurts well enough.
This is more or less where I'm at. I don't know wgeurts as well as I should/he deserves, but when I think about him, I'd struggle to find a title of 'Platinum' as being correlated to him. A title need not encompass every aspect of a user's presence, but I feel like the connection needs to be stronger than what Platinum gives.

In regards to wgeurts:

When it comes to title nominations, links help, yes--if I am not familiar with the justification for the title, then I need to be before I approve it.

Research is something I don't trust myself to do properly. Plus, it's a bit of a built-in safeguard for the title. If the title has enough supporters and has enough merit, then there will be someone who can provide those links to me. If those links aren't given, then it's a sign that maybe either the title doesn't have as much support as it initially seemed or maybe it wasn't as good of a title as it initially seemed.

So yes.

I ask for links. They never hurt to give (well assuming no site rule violations occur anyway), but they serve a convenient purpose.

In post 529, Ankamius wrote:nom schadd_ for mystery flavor;

I think this is at least a good starting point because it hits these points:

1. He has the "mystery box of silver" series that he has modded several games of, and is also currently ongoing. It also plays into the title in the sense that the setup design varies across games and is pretty unique across every iteration.
2. The flavor in his games tends to be, from my dumbdumb perspective, mostly random stuff that he finds on the internet or a theme that is generally more random than most other mods.
3. The semi colon cuts off the words in a way that really outlines how he talks; I see a lot of posts from him that are very direct and to the point with very few words.

Another very minor point is that he uses semi colons to get his VC's pagetops.

this doesn't go into his musical stuff or really any of his outside-of-mafia presence (since I generally don't go outside of the mafia areas), but if you're looking for a title based on his mafia presence, this is probably a good direction to look in.
In post 536, Irrelephant11 wrote:Nom Schadd for ;
Schadd's typing style often includes a unique use of capitalization, grammar, and punctuation that gives off an almost poetic vibe. He regularly uses semi-colons as part of this; he also often uses them to reach pagetops for votecounts. For me, his use of semi-colons is representative of this ~feeling~ as a whole. Additionally, it's a stretch, but the semi-colon implies "but wait, there's more", which is true about his setups (look for more going on than you usually expect) and his current series of themes (they just keep coming!).

I'm just a little nervous this is already someone's title? If so, nom schadd for , wig; for similar reasons
I like both of these and love the avenue of discussion; can we talk about them some more?

Everyone can go and see that he's modded a ton of micro games (to be precise, looking at the archives, fourteen of them!)

But beyond that, anyone in the normal review queue can tell you that he reviews micro normals. Like, *EVERY* micro normal. Maybe not every one of them but he has historically had a strong preference for reviewing them and has reviewed maybe dozens of micro normals. I swear to god that he has some script set up that alerts him when I post the number 9 in the normal review queue (that is, saying that there's a 9-player setup available for review). He has also scouted the normal queue thread for 9p setups that are going to be reviewable so he can get them.

Beyond that, anyone active in the open discussion subforum knows he's one of the most active people there. He brings a good analytical bent both in creating and reviewing setups and ideas, including computationally (example). Because of that (specifically because of the analytical nature of his contributions there) I think the microprocessor pun isn't *too* forced. But much more importantly than the pun he is literally processing a large number of micros, in reviews, and in moderating and in design.

Title fairy feedback: in my experience, the title would be more of an ironic title for Saudade rather than an actually accurate/appropriate title for him.

If the intention of the title were to be deliberately ironic, I would probably entertain the idea, but everything I am seeing suggests that the nomination was meant to be dead serious and unironic. Given that, I'd need a much stronger argument than what I have seen.

Ain't no rule says that the title fairy can't nominate someone for a title.

Nominate Pink Ball for the title of "pint-sized powerhouse".

Of all the titles during the Title Troll event, this was my favorite out of all of them and I REALLY wanted it to be kept, but almost nobody voted for it.

To give a better explanation for why the title works:
Pint Sized Powerhouse is the name of a trope, describing someone incredibly powerful and/or badass who happens to be of a small size.

Pink Ball is more than sufficiently badass, in spite of the account only having existed for a short time.
Pink Ball's namesake and former avatar, Kirby, is the most obvious example of a pint sized powerhouse.
But most of all, it refers to how PB is the new account of pinturiccio.

The title works on multiple levels, and is something which is entirely unique to him.

Hi all, sorry for the basically month-long absence.
I realize I have dropped the ball and I have no valid excuse (unless you consider mental health to be a valid excuse for negligence of duty which I do not, at least not for myself personally).
I can offer an explanation of circumstances (basically I have been in a rut, in a very very severely negative mental space for an incredibly long time, still not out of it even but I need to at least try to do my job here because if I can't manage to do it then I need to quit it and I would prefer to keep the job because I think that a temporary negative mindspace causing me to quit when outside of the negative mindspace I can do the job just fine would be a shame), but all I can really give is my sincerest apologies for having such a severe dereliction of duty.

With that having been said:
In post 1035, popsofctown wrote:nth second second coming
This has enough nths to pass, but it fails to meet a specific criteria.
It'd be my title and simply put: I don't like it.
You can give all the explanation in the world for why you think it's a good title, why you think it's appropriate for me, why you think it'd suit me, why it's objectively a good title, and so on and so forth, but I would be the one wearing the title and I am telling you that it just doesn't jive with me.

All of the objective reasons for why it might be a good title don't mean much if the title holder rejects the title, and I as the person who would hold the title, am rejecting the title, sorry. Because it's just not something I really feel. To be honest, it feels like a title for the sake of giving me a title, a joke for the sake of making a joke, something which while it has its reasons and has good backing is something which when you look at it is just thoroughly meh, thoroughly subpar.

While my standards are low enough where I might pass a mediocre title, when it comes to wearing a title for myself on a long-term basis, it needs to be a title which I'd accept if I wasn't the title fairy, and this title is one which I would turn down, sorry.

RE:Dannflor title:

I like the avenue of discussion, but I want to air out the idea some more, get more feedback on honing in on the right title. It doesn't need to be perfect (perfection is the enemy of good, and all that), but I would still like time to refine what feels right.

In post 1057, Firebringer wrote:nom dannflor for "dirty dan"
> deep wolf reference
> for doing Jingle dirty in Pine v Alisae
Of the ideas proposed, this is the one which most resonates with me, but I would like some more feedback before I pass it.

I'll say that I won't pass "Deepwolf", if the argument against dirty Dan is, "but I prefer deepwolf over it tho". The reason why is that I agree with Aristophanes.

Deepwolf is too generic, and doesn't encapsulate the meme effectively. It doesn't convey the story in of itself, and is a title not specific to Dannflor.

A variant title similar to Deepwolf based off the idea of Deepwolf? Sure, fine! Like pipsofctown pointed out, we titled Creature off of a variant of him being Obvtown. So a variant title off of Deepwolf is fine, (The) Deepwolf itself wouldn't be.

I also think so; for me, it invokes Dirty Dancing, when Dann's main nickname as far as I am aware is Danceflor (or something similar to that at least), while also conveying the basic idea behind the meme of Dann = Deepwolf.

But like I said, while it's the title of the suggestions I most prefer, I want more feedback on the idea.

Well, I disagree with your disagreement. :P

By which, I mean, I agree with Jingle. Deepwolf is a meme title which isn't really special enough for what Dannflor is.

And because I am the title fairy, that puts extra weight behind my point. :P

I won't pass Deepwolf, The Deepwolf, Deepscum, or The Deepscum for Dannflor. Trying to convince me to is a waste of time which should be better spent coming up with a title I WOULD pass.

If you don't think that Dirty Dan is a good title, but you do want to title Dann off of the deepwolf idea, feel free to suggest something!

With the amount of valid points against the title, as is right now, I am leaning towards not passing dirty Dan (but could easily be swayed back, so if you really want that, present your case!), so I am incredibly open to ideas here.

Like I said, I want there to be more talks about the title idea.
Of the suggested ideas thus far, dirty Dan has been the one I've thought was the best, but given the reasons why not to give that title, I probably won't give it.

So if the best idea thus far is one which I won't pass, we now need something even better which I WOULD. It doesn't need to be perfect, but it does need to be better than what we've had suggested thus far.

I'm of almost the opposite mindset--while I wouldn't give PenguinPower the title of .GIFted or something similar, due to that being more of the realm of Kison's title, the fact that Kison has a title for similar is in my mind grounds for proof that it is something which can be title-worthy. It's also not the EXACT same; Kison's title was if I recall correctly because he MADE the gifs (art and all, then animated them, tho I could be mistaken), whereas the idea of PenguinPower's is that he is incredibly prominent at posting memes, many of which are animated.

Given that, will give the 48 hours treatment for wolf pup:

1: Yo, general reminder to be nice.
Pretty sure that I don't actually have the ability to ban anyone from this subforum, but please conduct yourselves in a way where I wouldn't need to. Respect others, don't demand that you be respected, be polite, respect that others have opinions which you disagree with, and if you feel strongly enough, voice politely why you disagree, once, then move on. Don't keep spamming your stance.

2: I have heard the criticism of wolf pup, and agree with it strongly enough to not go through with it as a title.

That said,
3: I would love more feedback on this:
In post 1249, Jingle wrote:Nom Dann for Sheep In Deepwolf's Clothing

I think this captures the meme of "Dann always being accused of being a deepwolf" better, captures the cute-n-cuddly "I don't want to lynch Dann, even though he might akshually be scum" vibe I get from his scumplay, and captures the fact that he's basically the sacrificial lamb for which we blame all of the issues with AliPine. (DANNFLOR, WHY HAVE YOU BETRAYED ME?)
Because my gut first impression of this, is, I actually quite like it.
But since I did just go forward with almost approving wolf pup, I'm a bit hesitant to instantly approve of this, so want a lot more feedback on it.

In post 1257, popsofctown wrote:I don't understand how deepwolf is not ok but a four word title containing deepwolf is ok and in the event they're both ok I think the simpler title is better?
Because the four word title containing deepwolf is not in of itself deepwolf; it is a variant based on the idea, which as I previously stated, I've no qualms about titling off of.

While it is undeniable that you can associate Dannwolf with being a deepwolf (or suspected of as much), vice versa is not the case--when I think deepwolf, I do NOT think of Dannflor. Because the term is generic and dozens of other scummers (myself among them!) Are, notably, known to have that quality.

There is a meme about Dann being a deepwolf, but he doesn't own the term deepwolf to the point where deepwolf in of itself is title worthy, because it fails to convey the history/narrative behind the meme.

Whereas a variant title can accomplish exactly that, being something which Dannflor owns, which makes me think of Dannflor, which conveys the narrative/story behind the title in a way which is distinctly his.

By that metric, is Sheep in Deepwolfs Clothing good enough? I actually think so, because it does fit my mental image of Dannflor, does convey the meme, but I still want more feedback on the idea.

Yeah the funny thing about that is.
When I was new to being a title fairy, the option to ban someone was exactly where it was supposed to be--I saw it there as a big shiny button which I was obviously hoping to never need to push.

Except, when I checked back a few months later and every time since then...it's not there anymore.

Specifically. Per the video, what I SHOULD see is this:

What I ACTUALLY see is this:

I BELIEVE that, yes, I SHOULD have the power to ban someone from the title fairy subforum, that I am SUPPOSED to have that power, but in spite of my having SUPPOSED to have it, I currently lack it.
(I mean, I could always be mistaken and the power isn't meant to be mine even if it was the power of previous fairies. Site policy can change, that could be a site policy change, I haven't asked yet.)

So, regardless of whether I am meant to have the power to ban people from this subforum and regardless of previous title fairies' abilities to do so, fact is, I can't.

In lieu of this, I'll have to make do with making a request to zoraster for the bans.
Speaking of which, yes, we need some.

Post Post #1369  (isolation #80)  » Thu Nov 21, 2019 7:31 pm

Alright, I'm going to begin this with a blanket statement:
Someone else being an asshole does NOT give you the right to be an asshole. Being an asshole to someone you think has been an asshole just makes YOU an asshole. Someone being an asshole to you doesn't magically mean you're suddenly not an asshole yourself; if you're an asshole and someone in response to you is an asshole, you're still an asshole.

Being an asshole, regardless of whether you were an asshole first or second, means you lose any high ground, any sympathy, you could have had. It doesn't matter if you think you were in the right. Being an asshole is NEVER the appropriate response and never something you have the privilege of being. Less than 24 hours before I locked the thread, I made a simple request, a blanket warning to follow some simple guidelines:
In post 1256, mastina wrote:1: Yo, general reminder to be nice.
Pretty sure that I don't actually have the ability to ban anyone from this subforum, but please conduct yourselves in a way where I wouldn't need to. Respect others, don't demand that you be respected, be polite, respect that others have opinions which you disagree with, and if you feel strongly enough, voice politely why you disagree, once, then move on. Don't keep spamming your stance.
I will not be requesting a ban on anyone who posted what they did before this warning. I WILL be requesting action on those who posted AFTER it and IGNORED it.

Alisae, I asked people to state their opinion once, then move on, and not to spam your stance--you went on to spam your stance, repeatedly, in spite of my warning. I asked you to be polite, but the myriad of posts like this (there's far more than just that one) were most decidedly not. They were toxic. While you may have raised some valid points about Nancy Drew 39 (see below), the way you went about it was Not Okay.

Speaking of Nancy Drew 39, a good 80% of what I said that post was addressed to YOU, Nancy:
I asked for you to not demand that you be respected--and then you went and did precisely what I told you not to do. As I said before: thinking someone is being a dick to you does not give you the right to act like a dick. Your actions were just as disrespectful, if not MORESO, than the actions you thought were disrespectful towards you, and were very much Not Okay. Your posts also gave me the kneejerk first impression of you spamming your stance as well. (Looking at them again, I'm not as sure, but it's borderline at the very least.)

I'm going to request a 2 week ban from the subforum for Alisae and a 1 week ban for Nancy Drew.
These are the only two that I as a title fairy deem ban-worthy (though again, I guess it's not even my final call since I don't have the power to follow through on this and can only request it), but I am going to make a generic blanket warning to be more explicit here.

If you can't be nice and avoid toxicity when it comes to discussing Dannflor's title, then I'll implement a blanket ban on titling Dannflor for a rather significant amount of time (say, six months).

I really really REALLY don't want to do that--that'd be patently unfair to Dannflor. It'd be punishing him for something that's not his fault, when he did no wrong. He doesn't deserve to have the chance at a title taken from him when the reason it'd be taken from him is the general community's actions.

But I mean.
We've gone seven whole months with virtually zero toxicity here. There's been occasional bits here and there, but nothing this bad. If we are civil and nice when it comes to discussing literally every other proposed title, but suddenly devolve into a toxic cesspool when it comes to titling Dannflor, then there is APPARENTLY a problem specific to titling Dannflor--and if bans aren't enough of a dissuasion from that toxicity, then I don't see any other choice.

Nobody wants to stop Dannflor from getting a title. I don't. You don't. So be nice, be civil, be polite. This is not the place to discuss the requested bans. Of "but this user should be banned too!", of "but this ban is too long!", of "but this ban is too short!", of unequal punishment or any of that sort. Drop. It. Drop it all. This is for discussing titles. And it should be discussion. Not toxic comments, not spam, not unhelpful, unproductive, commentary, repeating the same thing, digging at other users who have stances differing from your own.

That really shouldn't be hard to do.
So I'm unlocking the topic.
Be. nice. Don't be an asshole.

Neither puppeteer nor pup-peteer invoke imagery of Dannflor for me. This feels like it's taking an idea we already decided wasn't the best (wolf pup), and then taking the worst part of it and putting it into an amalgamation which is even worse at explaining the connotations behind it. I don't get the meme surrounding Dannflor from the title and I don't see how it fits Dannflor.

In post 1272, Alisae wrote:no, "The Deepwolf" and "deepwolf" are not the same thing.
I agree they are not the same thing!

I disagree that The Deepwolf invokes imagery of Dannflor!

The Deepwolf may not be literally identical to just Deepwolf, but it still runs into the same problem. It IS still generic. It's LESS generic, but it's still generic. The Deepwolf does no better at invoking the imagery of Dannflor than just Deepwolf. So it's still not something I am going to approve as a title for him because it is still something which is too generic.

Since the topic was brought up, to compare it to Alisae's lolbalance: as far as I am aware, the term lolbalance pretty much was nonexistent before Alisae started modding games, and pretty much nonexistent after Alisae stopped modding games; anecdotally, that is fairly strong evidence that the term was strongly associated with em. The term lolbalance invokes imagery of Alisae's modding, and Alisae's modding invokes imagery of lolbalance--it is a term that Alisae OWNS.

Dannflor does not own The Deepwolf. This is more or less my opinion on the matter as well.

In post 1281, Alisae wrote:I also think Is this a deepwolf? is also fitting for Dann if you literally do not want to go with The Deepwolf route, since a lot of that meme about the question "Is Dann the deepwolf" when he's was not.
This is something which I would like more discussion about tho! This is a title I feel has potential.

In post 1319, Enter wrote:deepwolf?
And this is also a title I could get behind.

Yes, really--just the addition of the question mark changes the connotation to me. It invokes the question of "is this what they actually are?", in a way that I feel like is suitable for a title. It'd be akin to a title like "Obvtown?" instead of a title like Obvtown. The latter is not a good title, the former I'd be willing to at the very least entertain if I thought it appropriate for the scummer it was nominated for. (In that case, probably wouldn't go through because I can't think of a scummer who'd own the identity of it, but it COULD go through, with the right identity, is what I'm getting at.)

Or 'Townie?' going through instead of just Townie, 'Scum?' going through instead of just 'Scum'. The question mark tells a story in of itself. "Deepwolf?" is something which I DO think is something that is more or less, the Dannflor meme in a nutshell.

So at the very least, I want to entertain the idea and get feedback on the idea.

Hey so I now actually have the power to ban people from this subforum and have made the decision to extend the lengths of the bans!
Alisae's ban is 21 days. When the title fairy says "dude don't post for two weeks, you're being toxic", and then you post something toxic, what do you expect?

Nancy Drew 39's ban is 28 days.
Because when the title fairy tells you to not post for a week and that yes you did things wrong, then you go on to continue to post not just once but repeatedly time and time and time and TIME again and do those very same things you were going to be timed out for, it is not going to receive just a slap on the wrist.

I gave you warnings on Wednesday.
I expected behavior to improve today--it did not.
I lacked the power to implement the subforum bans myself until just now, but deciding "oh because mastina doesn't have the power to ban us, we can still post!" and continuing to post the very same things you're being banned for, is explicitly Not Okay.

I believe not site culture for the title fairy subforum. Title fairies have enacted (usually temporary) bans on users from the title fairy subforum. TO MY KNOWLEDGE, none of these have been announced in the official ban thread. So TO MY KNOWLEDGE, I shouldn't announce them there. I'll go ask zoraster if I should, but until he says "yes, you should do that", I will assume I should not.

No worries, I didn't take it as a diss. I took it as something which did need clarification on. (And, official word: I am indeed not supposed to announce title fairy subforum bans.)
If it wasn't you, I figured someone else would ask that question at some point and I felt that it was a question which deserved an answer.

Planning on writing a larger post on the subject tomorrow. (Have been a bit V/LA this weekend.)

Basic response: every title proposed has some good reasons for it, every title proposed has some criticism for it, thinking of moving forward with most of them and leaving the choice to Dannflor, but like I said, want to give a better post explaining it tomorrow when I have more time to do so.

1. Gentleman hits the note of his general playstyle being overall polite and easy to play with; it's very hard to impossible to hate or get angry at him in game
2. A Gentleman's howl can indicate BOTH town looking wolfy and scum looking townie; a wolf looking like a gentleman is harder to catch than a standard wolf, while a gentleman howling looks like a wolf despite not being a wolf. This is generally how consensus towards Dannflor's alignment turns out over time in my experience.
3. A somewhat distant this note it hits is that Dannflor can be quite active and be a strong voice (howling) when he is town (a gentleman)

there's probably even more that can be said can fit Dannflor but these are what I can come up with off the bat
Well now I have an extra title to consider dammit. :P

I'm postponing this until tomorrow, but will give word then unless someone comes up with another incredibly well thought out idea within the next 24 hours. :P

Post Post #1523  (isolation #88)  » Wed Nov 27, 2019 2:30 pm

At this point, I think I am willing to forward on the following titles for Dannflor:
-Sheep in Deepwolf's Clothing. This title conveys the heart of the meme, while also having a common expression behind it to back it up. It's not a perfect title, and I recognize the valid criticism that it's a bit forced, but I feel like it's worth going forward for.
-Is this a deepwolf?. This title conveys the meme behind Dannflor fairly well. I recognize the criticism of it being a bit wordy for the idea, but I feel like it's good enough to move on to the next stage.
-Deepwolf?. This title has the simplicity behind it and is the closest to the original suggestion for him. I don't actually think there's much criticism for it other than preferring other options more, so it is definitely good enough to move on.
-Schrödinger's Deepwolf. This title conveys the meme; this title is a solid title. My only concern is, is it a good title for Dannflor? Because while it's a good title, and it's good at conveying the meme we're titling Dannflor for, I'm not sure it's a good title for Dannflor specifically. It's still good enough to move on for now tho.
-Gentleman's Howl. This one is the opposite of Schrodinger's Deepwolf. This title is a solid title, and this title is a title I feel is good for Dannflor, the thing is it doesn't really convey the meme which we started the titling process on Dannflor for; it doesn't invoke imagery of being a deepwolf. So why's it here? Because it's a good title, and a title I feel is fitting for Dannflor, which is more important than fitting the meme behind Dannflor.

As Ankamius said: every one of these titles has at least one person who thinks, "this is the best iteration of the title imo"; almost every one of the titles has at least one person who thinks, "this is the worst iteration of the title imo"; there's mixed support on most of them and no universal consensus as far as I can tell.

At this point, then, going to go forward with 72 hours on each of them for Dannflor:
(expired on 2019-11-30 15:30:06).
If you are very very strongly opposed to some of these (and your opposition isn't, "I like a different title more"), state so now; if I get strong enough opposition, then that title/those titles may be removed.
Similarly, if you are very very strongly in favor to some of these and you don't want them removed, this would be your final chance to make sure they are pushed through.

In 72 hours, I'll be letting Dannflor pick from all the titles which remain from the above, because at this point, might as well leave it to him since I feel there's multiple good titles and I'm comfortable going forward with them.

On that note, we kinda droppd the discussion around PenguinPower's titles in favor of discussing Dannflor; I feel comfortable enough approving whichever variant of the title (if any) PP would want, between
.peng, .PENG, .PeNG, .P eN G, .P EN G (I believe those were the suggested iterations)
So, giving that 48 hours:
(expired on 2019-11-29 15:30:06)
Speak now, or forever hold your peace.

In doing the above, I did notice there were more nths for nsg's sorting hat than I thought. I thought it was like two or three, but turns out, yeah, it is like 7 or so.
I'm not opposed to the title, so I'll also be giving it the 48 hour treatment:

Plotinus absolutely deserves a title, sure, but I'm not sure that this is the one. It feels incredibly forced to me, and while I'd love to have Plotinus be titled, trying to force a title onto Plot won't generate a good title.

Not trying to force a title doesn't mean the title doesn't look forced. What I more or less mean by this is,
sort of alluding to the thoroughness of plotinus posting
This justification of, "it kinda sorta alludes to this one aspect of Plotinus", is the only part which makes me feel like the title nomination has anything to do with Plotinus at all, and it's a little bit tacked on. I know Plotinus frequently has an association with kittens and/or cuteness, but when I look at the title "Kitten Caboodle", I don't think of Plotinus at all and if it were given to Plotinus, I wouldn't really understand why Plotinus had that title.

In post 1634, the worst wrote:i actually like kitten caboodle more as i think about it
Then can you give a more indepth explanation as to why? Because the above is more or less my problem with it. Even knowing that Plotinus has an occasional association with kittens/cute things, if Kitten Caboodle were put as Plotinus's title, I would have no clue why that was Plotinus's title, no way of associating the title with Plotinus on anything more than that superficial level.

To put it another way: it doesn't feel like it's a title special to Plotinus's presence on-site. It's not a title which feels like it is specific to Plotinus; it feels like a title you could plop under the username of any scummer who has an association with kittens and have it be equally fitting for them.

I'd be happy to be convinced otherwise, but you will need to convince me it's something special to Plotinus and appropriate to Plotinus's presence on-site.

However, given time to reflect on it and a fairly convincing argument for why it was something that naturally fit for Plot, I ended up finding myself agreeing.

The question isn't if it fits pops--it's more is it something clearly connected to pops, AND, something not super-generic that is instead specific TO pops. Even if you think it passes one of those metrics (and it is currently my opinion it fails on both), it needs to pass both and I don't see it.

Ehhh I debated capitalization. Technically the original nomination was lowercase, but one of the main nths was for the uppercase version. My username is lowercase which makes a lowercase title more suitable than it would be otherwise and this was the main reason why I considered having it be lowercase, but I ultimately decided to go uppercase because
-I am known for not talking in lowercase letters; if anything, I randomly capitalize the start of words which should be lowercase, so it felt more suited to me,
-Both of my prior titles had the uppercase first letters, and,
-The majority of titles, unless given a specific reason to be lowercase, are uppercase. The default is usually to have titles be uppercase unless they have a specific reason to not be. Since it's the more common trend, I felt like it was something that overall fit better.

Plus, is my title and while I get the aesthetic of lowercase title for lowercase username, I like uppercase better.

I'm not arguing a return to Smooth Criminal (he's good at scum, but I can't remember the last time he went an entire game without being wagoned out of paranoia at least once) and I'm not saying Solid Criminal is a bad shift over that as it fits the newbells better than smooth criminal does now. OTOH, Solid Criminal just doesn't feel special to Raybells in the way that it could. It's true, in that I'm fairly certain that Raybells is at least mostly solid and good at playing scum, but there are any number of solid scummers that play scum well. It's a title that fits, instead a special title. It also completely ignores that Raybells isn't good at scum at the expense of his other play.

So let's examine my suggestion:

Alien, in mafia terms, is a role that is very strong as both town and scum. In fact, in smaller games Alien makes sense as the majority (or even entirety) of the power for a game. Alien, as a faction, is a shorthand term for a scumteam that is so powerful that they need a significant nerf (a single nightkill per game). Both of these show the strength of the seal as both factions, a capability of shifting the game to win as either faction nigh singlehandedly.

Framer, similarly, is a role that is difficult to play well. You have to figure out how to get a cop to target your choice or accurately figure out that a cop will be investigating a town player. More importantly to the title though, when applied correctly, Framer can get a lynch on even the strongest town player when it would normally be nigh impossible. This is a clear reference to RC's ability to push through lynches through sheer force of personality. It doesn't hurt that Raybells has been known to fake a guilty to get a lynch from time to time (and isn't that exactly what a Framer does, mechanically?).

Ant, here is a reference to the ability of ants to lift weights much larger than their own, and also the propensity of some ants to scream at you while suicide bombing out of trees. Actually, no it isn't, but I needed to include it for the pun so it stays.

The core of this title, however, is much simpler. Alien Ant Farm sings the song Smooth Criminal. Smooth Criminal was RC's title for like, decades. This isn't a username pun. This isn't an avatar pun. This isn't even a behavioral pun. This, right here, is our chance to award a title that is a title pun. And it fits.
Would like to mention, this is a very solid nomination and it is nominations like this which're top-quality and are a good way to get a title to get through. Not many people are talking about it tho so I can't approve it yet without more people discussing it and whether they think it warrants the change and such.

On the note of a title with support though:

Less than sure zoraster will actually accept it, but I think that it's good enough to at least propose to him, so I'm giving this the 48 hour treatment:

How about I open up it to an ironic Organized Crime or more direct Disorganized Crime, leave the choice up to zoraster? Leave him the choice of either.
Extending deadline due to extra option, for further discussion on the matter. (Basically, to give him the choice of either instead of forcing one.)

That is something I can understand the reasoning for the title, yes. I'd like to see people give a quick check-in on it to see if people still think it's suited for him, but I'm not going to ask for a full five to check in, just one or two more would be enough for me to move forward on Monty Hall or a similar title for PrivateI.

On the note of having the necessary people...I believe Klick is almost there on Flash Forward, so similarly needs just about one or two more there.

Tempted to just bring both titles to the 48 hour mark right here and now to be honest but I suppose I'll still formally ask for people to if they support those titles give their support for them.

Nancy does hold sole reign on the term 'woat' on mafiascum, but her application of it is never in a way which is positive. While it is distinctive to her and a defining characteristic of her play, it is not a good thing. It's notable, but not in a way you want something to be notable.

You probably weren't asking this and most of this section should be common sense, but it seems important anyway. You should not nominate:

If there are title nominations for you in consideration in the thread, be careful about giving too much feedback or input - while declining a specific title or set of titles that's currently in discussion for you is perfectly fine, going too far beyond that may cause users to become uncomfortable with the current proceedings.
I'm not going to be lax on this anymore, so Nancy can take a rather lengthy time-out. (32 days.)

Btw on the note of Zaph; Zaphkael is one of the best writers on mafiascum, period. In all aspects of that term. It's obviously applicable to mafia games, but extends to writing outside of mafia, too. I might even be so bold as to suggest Zaphkael is THE best writer on mafiascum bar none, but I realize that might be a slightly more contentious statement, whereas there can be absolutely zero debate on Zaphkael being one of the best writers on mafiascum.

So, obviously, I would support a title there, but it needs more discussion and such before I approve anything.

Prodge of all sitewide activities for today - I promised you all yesterday that, yes, I would get to things soon, but anticipating that there was a very real chance I'd need to do this is precisely why I said I couldn't promise a date other than "soonish".

I am optimistic that I should have time for all of my duties, here included, come tomorrow. Still can't promise it for certain, but I don't think there's anything which would get in the way (whereas today, there was), so. Hopefully tomorrow, will be here.

In post 2105, northsidegal wrote:nom MariaR for Twenty Two Faced

When looking back through the old title threads I think there was some pretty good discussion on a title for Maria that never ended up making it through because the title fairy changed at an inopportune moment. I personally think that "I Have Many Names" was the best of the titles suggested back then but I prefer Twenty Two Faced for a few reasons.

First, to justify either of the titles, among the traits that Maria is most well known for are being very good at scum, and having a lot of alts. "I Have Many Names" certainly fits the alt aspect of that well, and while it does have something of a sinister tone that might be reminiscent of scum, I can't help but feel that it understates the "being very good at scum" trait.

To me, "Twenty Two Faced" better incorporates both elements, with two faced being a more clear indicator of lying and being good at scum, and the more literal interpretation of twenty two faces being an allusion to a great deal of alternate accounts. Also, it's the sort of unique twist on a normal phrase ("two faced") that I feel like makes up a lot of classic titles, e.g. All Work and Roleplay, Best Newcrummer, etc.


i think that unlike a lot of titles that refer to people's unique personality traits that it's both really easily understandable while still having a bit underneath. also, include a hyphen anywhere as looks best.


So I've been thinking about this for the past few days and the best I've come up with I think is "Alternatively,"
I'm not as good at explaining this as I want to but I think it's a good way to bring across the idea of "yeah you might think I'm scum, but what about..." and in general just describes their ability to convince people easily as a scum player.
It's also, quite literally, a reference to their amount of alts (both alt-ernatively and alternative accounts), which as nsg said is something that is really characteristic for them.
Lastly, to me, it also has the meaning that MariaR is just really good at adapting to the situation at hand and the people around them, and I feel like it's a large enough part of their personality to mention it.
I really really like this, can we get a bit more feedback on it? Good title, yes/no? I think it's good.

Your play was one of those things!
Based on this modding philosophy, I am going to throw out Little Did I Know as a title nom (trope reference)

Bumping this b/c Zaph didn't keep Ghost Writer, which I think sounded cool but am unsure how his writing credentials onsite relate to ghosts or ghost writing.

Little Did I Know got a few nths but not 5. The tl;dr idea behind it is that it's a writing/narration trope that ties into how he approaches modding. Going to suggest Little Did They Know this time as it being in third person might make more sense.
I really really like Little Did They Know.

Anyone want to present any counterargument?
I'm moving forward on this.
48 hours on Little Did They Know for Zaphkael: (expired on 2020-07-02 02:52:06)

By my count, medium pharma has four supporters; could we get more people to chime in so I know it's more than just four who want that title?


RE: schadd_ title:
At this point, I can see the argument for all three spellings of it, and feel like it'd be appropriate to leave the decision to the person who would hold the title, so I will approve whichever schadd_ chooses, if any, of pandora's pjukebox, pandora's pukebox, and pandora's jukebox.
You have 48 hours to give me any reason not to move forward with letting schadd_ choose between the three: (expired on 2020-07-02 02:52:06)
So speak now or forever hold your peace.
Contacting Zaphkael and schadd_ now about their titles.

but I don't think after the latest announcement it would be appropriate
Lylo doesn't necessarily need to mean 'lynch or lose'. It can also mean 'eliminate or lose', with some artistic liberty taken (eLYminate, y instead of i being the given liberty taken), so I'm fairly sure due to lylo not being automatically lynch, it's okay to have as part of a title, though I will double-check with zoraster on that policy just to be doubly-sure.

That said, given there's the other alternatives, Elo and Behold (which has the added implication of skitter being a high-elo player which I find humorous and appropriate), or just Lo and Behold, ultimately it doesn't matter too much; I'm comfortable moving forward with this line on a skitter title regardless because these options all have good ring to them.

Quick title fairy update:
I am obviously American and for the last couple of days have been busy with the American holiday of July 4th, but with that being past I should be more active.

Tonight however, I very very much need to attend to helping my dearest friend through a hard time they are going through, and while I am here to do a quick check-in (on that note, see below), title fairy duties will have to wait until the next time I log in (which I believe should be tomorrow--no promises, but I THINK I should have the free time to spare tomorrow for here).

In the mean time, per that check-in:
In post 2382, Aristophanes wrote:I present to you:
Someone - "Well, we gotta lynch Someone"
Nai - "Lyncher of the Dead"
Per the change in policy only being about the word 'Lynch', these are the only titles that, if titles from ages prior need to be changed, would be changed.

Do they need to be changed? Good question! I'll ask zoraster tomorrow and when he gets back to me, I'll let y'all know what he tells me in regards to their titles.

Quickly, zoraster did say the previous titles with 'lynch' should be edited.
I turned 'Lyncher of the Dead' into 'Executor of the Dead', and "Well we gotta lynch someone" into "Well we gotta remove someone". Perhaps not the best changes to make, but the ones which in spurn of the moment felt right.

Getting to other title fairy stuff now.

I think this suits her because
  • it’s a reference to her avatar, Scholarship Student Isis
  • it implies she’s “best in class,” no matter if it’s mafia, rpg class, or overall classiness
  • it’s fairly original(?)
I like this but I want more feedback from people on it.
Per Errant/Alisae's bumping of the title nom, I'd like to bump this, to again put this forward one more time; any more thoughts on this?
For a start, 48 hours on Best in Class for Isis: (expired on 2020-07-12 23:07:39)

(This is long overdue. Seeing what else I need to get to step by step.)

For skitter, at this point I feel like moving forward with ELo and Behold and Last Laugh, with the possible addition of Lylo and Behold if someone can present a strong argument in support of it being an option, and to let skitter choose between the two(/three).
So, 48 hours: (expired on 2020-07-12 23:15:15)
