I'm sure it's great and noble to be a "Hipparch" and all, but I'd like something unique that captures the true core of stePH.

So I've settled on "Muffin Top"; would the next admin change it please?  TIA.

Just to lay some ground rules, you have to be a Hipparch for a while before we'll do this. And it doesn't get rid of the Hipparch, it goes above.

yes, we do not grant the almighty kustom titles to all, only to those truly deserving!  i granted you one, Newt, because you've been such a great Newt... and Bunny... :D

and you've been Hipparch for a while :P

I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

Hipparch is baked in, we can't change that without changing it for everyone. Which is why I use the field to play off Autarch.

However, I can only change it once, so now you're stuck like that. The Muffin Top Hipparch foreva.

Done, I thought a little celebration was in order.  It's also fun to see how long it takes people to notice you changed something.  It took Heradel over a month to notice his signature had been messed with.

Zorag has learned to keep an eye on those things.  He challenged my power and I beat him into submission.

Just "Muffin Top" please, not "Kvetching Muffin Top".  Thanks in advance.

Not to be a curmudgeon about this whole PLZ A NEW TITLE, YA RLY thing but......
shouldn't it be (a bit like how anyone who wants to be elected to power is just the sort of person who should never be given any) that, if one is impatient enough to demand some sort of fancy shmancy new title it should then be forever more denied?

[like in that He-Man episode where he finds this Orb Of Wonderous Power, which he completely fails to use in any useful way incidentally, until that weird eagle lady turns up and takes it away and the "moral" of the story is that the best thing he can do is just sit on his ass and not use this or any other Orbs Of Wonderous Power, as it was all just a big test of how 'noble' he could be.  Like WHAT THE FRAK SORT OF MORAL IS THAT TO TELL KIDS - JUST DO NOTHING WHEN MAGICAL TRINKETS DROP IN YOUR LAP?!? No wonder we have voter apathy.]

Ahem, so....yeah:  Asking for new names would be like being an impulsive He-Man misusing magical orbs, thus making a strange eagle-lady/EscapePod-moderator angry.  So you'll not find *me* asking for any sort of title-upgrade. I learned my lesson from that cartoon all those years ago.

This made more sense in my head.   :-\

... yeah.
um.
the thing is you cant get a custom title by just waiting :D
and hey, if someone is deserving enough, why not.  doesn't bother me at all.

terrible moral by the way. i'd do some crazy stuff with an Orb of Wonderous Power

I know.  I mean, what's the point of having the thing if the 'real' goal is not to use it.
(Unless you're a eagle headress woman, then, apparently, you are deemed responsible enough to keep them grumble grumble....)

So, we "don't" get a fancy title by just waiting.  Riiiiight.  And we "have to ask for one" instead.
And if we just "pretend we aren't wanting one" it won't appear?
Pah. I've seen He-Man, did I mention, I'm not falling for such an obvious trick like asking for my new title....uhh....I mean whatever this 'title' might be that I'm not expecting or waiting for or wanting at all, honest!
Oops.

haha, well a new title cant just magically appear while you dont want one if there is no non-title said by someone...
the magic that wont happen needs specifics.

It won't do any good to not ask for a title until you are a Hipparch.  Until then, there is no Orb, so why don't you give a Wand of Wonder a spin?
