I haven't seen him flake numerous times, so no.

All the noms for Ythan are meh to me. I definitely think people might be on the right track, but I'd probably hold off on the title for a little to let his playstyle develop, that's just me.

DUDE SHUT THE FUCK UP.

The Rules wrote: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.


Go away now please.

I prefer "I'm bi, dammit" to both hetero-flexible and "Hey, guys..." because "Hey, guys..." is not something I've ever actually said. I just had two infamous GD topics: "Guys" and "Guys, Pt. 2 [adult]".

In that vein ...

Nominate danakillsu for Wants a Cape

Dana is carving out a niche for running comic-book (specifically mainstream Marvel / DC tights type comics) themed games that are enjoyable and well flavored and designed.

See the completed Secret Invasion Mini Theme, the currently running "Blackest Night" Large Theme. He's also put in to co-mod a Large Theme JLA / Avengers game soon.

This is a bad, bad reason to give someone a title.

Look at the people on this site who have titles. They're not just handed out like candy, usually. Hey, look, I'm modding an entire SERIES of games on Lost, maybe we should make me a title to reference Lost! /sarcasm

You, Vi, have a title because your mafia play is well-known.
Shea has a title because he's known for being a grump.
I have a title due to drunken posting antics.
Flay has a title for being so heavily involved in coding/site management stuff.
All of these things are what people are generally well-known for...it's what gives their title character. Nobody, except for the handful of people who have actually PLAYED in DKU's superhero games (and I'm one of them, for the record) would know/get/appreciate his title.

Kise has an entire series of games based on Square-Enix, where's his title?
Dramonic has an entire group of games based off of obscure/not amazingly popular JRPGs, where's his title?
I could pull out a thousand more examples, but you get it.

Ythan wrote:Or maybe he just meant it's a bad, bad reason to give someone a title.

This. People are supposed to voice their opinions on titles here, and I've voiced mine:
The fact that dana has run one mini game based on superheroes and has one ongoing game based on superheroes and has plans to do a third in the future, based on superheroes, does not warrant a title. The current site meta for titles is exactly what Oman quoted Shea: "Yup, that is definitely X!" When people look at me, drunken/sex posting is what they think of. Anyone who's played with Ythan knows his obnoxious playstyle. Even people who have played in dana's games are gonna be a little bit like… "Huh?" when they look at that title. It's not a good title, and it's not a good reason to give someone a title.

Oh, and for the record, you can go fuck yourself, too. Don't launch into an attack on my personal life just because you're butthurt I'm not on board with the whole LOL DANA LIEKS SUPARHEROZ HE SHUD GET A TIETUL gangbang.

MoI wrote:If that’s the standard than titles need to pretty much be done away with. Because, deep history or no, the vast majority of titles here mean VERY little to anyone but the player themselves, and perhaps their personal circle of internet-friends. Does anyone who never sets foot in General Discussion care one bit about Reck’s title or why he has it. No. That doesn’t mean it isn’t something Reck should have. Titles can’t be all things to all people.

That's why it's a GD-related title. I mean, for fuck's sake, my title essentially references a site-wide meme that got so overspread and out of control it lead to Shea posting a thread in GD telling people "Reck's gay, we get it, can we not harp on it anymore?" The fat of the matter is, MOST people get the reference. The ONLY people who would get dana's title are the ones who have played in his games before, and guess what? I've played in one of his games, and I still think it's a stupid title/reason to give him a title.

dana wrote:Hahaha. Love the discussion on a title for me. Just for the sake of information, in about two or three months, I will have run 4 superhero-themed games, with a total of around 50 different players, I would guess. The total number of players will be around 80, but there'll be a lot of overlap. So I would certainly not be opposed to such a title. And btw, xRECK, until I did some investigation about two weeks ago, I had no clue what YOUR title meant.

Then how about we wait until there's enough of a mass recognition for your apparent superhero hard-on to give you a title instead of trying to ram this down everyone's throats before your second game is even completed?

shaft.ed wrote:I think this fits his GD persona well and the PM exchange with Ythan was hilarious. The title makes me laugh and thus I think it's a good match. Could be altered to astoot to be more "acceptable"

This is actually a decent title. The wordplay has two meanings, it generally references his behavior in GD, the word itself sounds funny, and the whole Ythan/RC exchange was hysterical.

Kublai Khan wrote:Nominate danakillsu for Mistaken Secret Identity.

That should cover the super hero angle I know him for and references the fact that he gets called a girl a lot because of the name dana.

(Secret Mistaken Identity works too.)

The name is better, but the reason for a title is still forced and stupid.

danakillsu wrote:That post actually just made me agree more with MoI. I think the fact that xRECK complained a lot about the rules of the one game he was in that has to do with the proposed title should be considered. But if people want to wait a few months to give me the title (and I DO like KK's slightly better) that's cool too. No reason to get angry about it at all.

...do you actually think... wait, no. Are you seriously insinuating that I'm holding a grudge against you just because you and ReaperCharlie were twatmods? So what, you're twat mods, I don't play in anymore of your games, that's easy enough. I'm not petty enough to take it out on you by trying to block you from getting a title.

It was just a stupid title, and you don't deserve it because you have a hard-on for comic books.

1) The whole argument that my title is inaccurate now is kinda stupid. It happened when it happened. Also, the fact that Shotty is agreeing with you guys should say a lot.

2) This thread is meant for debate/discussion on titles. I'm stating my beliefs that what he did should not earn him a title. Titles are earned. What he has done did not earn him a title. And the name is stupid anyway. In three months, when Dana has four superhero games under his belt, if he can drum up enough support then you won't hear a peep out of me. But after 1.5 games? Come on now.

"Mrs. Hogan" or anything with that connotation makes me think of, as stated above, Hulk's big-tittied wife.

If anything, Chyna more fits the style of aggressive, masculine woman.

Except Percy has run multiple games with that theme.
