Default Custom title?

I've been stuck with this boring "Dumb Person" title for quite some time. Before Dumb Accounts, I know there was a way to get custom titles with prize points, but I am not aware of any way to get them now. How long will it be (if ever) before they are available again?

EDIT: Yay! This is my 256th post! That's 2^8. It's also 16 squared.

Yeah, I was wondering that, too.

Jamul said on the Journal that he would be taking a small break from making the current game to finish the site, (Complete the "My Downloads" stuff, etc.) so he might start accepting Custom Title offers soon. I have no way of knowing this, so I'm not going to say for sure.

I'd imagine it would be in the Yerfshop, though I'm not sure how easily it could be automated.

It probably won't be fully automated so Jamul can check if the custom titles are Hamumu appropriate; then again, he could change them back after they're changed and ban the corresponsing user (at least temporarily), though if he was to check for that before the title is officially changed, that would prevent inappropriate titles from even appearing at all -o_-o

I think Jamul could use his skills to make it so that the forum itself could ban somebody if he tried to get an inappropriate title

Default Re: Custom title?

I don't thing it's impossible
Code:
If *user* tries to use as a title one of these:
*inappropriate word*
*inappropriate 1337 word*
*inappropriate word*
*inappropriate 1337 word*
*inappropriate word*
*inappropriate 1337 word*
*inappropriate word*
*inappropriate 1337 word*
or*another inappropriate word*
Then ban user

Then people would find ways to bypass the word filter (alternate spellings etc. or innuendo using everyday words that can't be banned).

Perhaps something where the user submits a custom title idea, and if it is deemed appropriate, then the YB cost will be taken from the user, and they are given the title.

On runescape, people could still say the a-word by disguising it.

I think it means that if Jamul makes an automated filter, he's going to need to design it to account for all possible methods of including inappropriate words. I think there are a bit too many for an automated system to really work well though.

Yerfdog Re: Custom title?

Just Jamul checking if the entered custom titles are family-friendly is good enough- That's what he used to do with the avatars and old titles. There's too many problems with trying to automate it.

You might as well say that he's being the world tester guy of custom titles. That's not an easy job, considering how many people here might want a custom title.
