I've gotten a few questions on this so I thought I might start a thread.
The member titles (fully little thing under your av) were developed by Aaron and Hannah and are very funny, as a few of you have seen, cool stuff pops in and out--sometimes for only one post. Sometimes its the same for very long stretches.
You can buy the ability to change your member title in the Beam Bucks Store
Your member name is not something we wanted to change. I feel like it really becomes a part of how people identify with you and it gets a little confusing over the years, who is who.
However, with that being said, I have decided I will let everyone do it once because sometimes people don't have a chance to think it through at registration.
So let me know if you would like it changed. We will require a "formally known as" type thing in your sig for a few weeks just so everyone gets the word. Could also post it here
