Is that some sort of privilege for posters who've been here for a long time, or have a certain # of posts.

i.e.

There used to be an option to pay a certain amount of vCash for a custom user title, but that option is no longer available.

I'm very much looking forward to seeing dear Leanne at next year's ASB Classic.

I'm thinking of wearing this t-shirt:

There are plenty more that have one, like moderators and people who bought one when the Vcash store was up like Stacey said. As far as I know only admins can change them.

I doubt it, because supergrunt has one :help: :tape:
The history behind the titles below the usernames is very controversial at best.

At one time, it took at least $10,000 to change another usernames custom title to whatever that person wanted to. It was being abused by two participants at WTAWorld, "King" and "Kenny" who changed others users custom titles as a means of retaliation.

Kenny changed my custom title to something rude like "troll" because I said that Serena had gained weight. I thought it was one of the mods who had done it and private messaged a few mods to inquire why my user title was changed. I was informed by Griffin and Sonja that it was changed by Kenny and a few mods offered to change my user title to whatever I wanted it changed to. However, Kenny donated the money back to me, so that I could change it myself. Now, Mother Marjorie could have kept the money Kenny donated to her, and just had one of the mods change it for free. However, Mother Marjorie did the right thing and used the money given to her by Kenny to change it.

Some weeks later, "King" went on a spree and changed Supergrunts title to "Offical retard and troll" and mine to "Swoop" (something having to do with the Julia lady according to Pureracket). King had also changed other users custom title as well. I informed those participants who King had changed their custom user titles to private message the mods to get theirs changed back, and they were restored.

At that time, I complained to several mods, including Poe that the "change custom user title" function was being abused by "King" and that it would only serve to divide people at the WTA World forum and create hard feelings. Also noticed at that time, a large amount of V-Cash was being donated back and forth among a small group of participants and it was largely rumored that V-Cash was being laundered for the purpose of being able to use the "change user title" function, among other things. It was a couple of weeks later after an "upgrade" that a lot of functions related to purchasing neat and nifty things with V-Cash was halted, including being able to use V-Cash to change others user titles.

However, not everyone that requested their custom user title be changed back to its original form was obliged, myself included.

I now wear it as a proud badge of hypocrisy by some of the mods in this forum, who claim to be objective keepers of the peace, yet whose inaction in restoring my original user title, only promotes the disharmony they claim they are against.

...boy! It must be a very slow day in my office :o
Anyway---> :confused: ...sometimes people talk about v-cash as if it were real money, such nonsense :lol: Anyway my tittle was a gift from a wonderful poster. Now what a sweet gesture that was :hearts:

I got mine way before the whole V-cash thingie started. I never used the V-cash option.

That said, I didn't know about the V-cash username abuse. Marjorie, it could be that the mods simply forgot about your user title. They have lives too, you know.

it was a special thing because only those who registered in early 2001 could have one, but I guess it isn't that cool anymore

I noticed that you still have "swoop"; is this the "proud badge" you speak of (sarcasm noted)? I think the way it worked out for you is just rediculous. Why would anyone waste their time on trying to make peoples time unpleasent?
