1. For prospective new members, a word of warning: don't use common names like Dennis, Simon, or Kenny if you decide to create an account. Spammers have used them all before you and gotten those names flagged in the anti-spam databases. Your account registration will be rejected because of it.
    Dismiss Notice
  2. Since it has happened MULTIPLE times now, I want to be very clear about this. You do not get to abandon an account and create a new one. You do not get to pass an account to someone else and create a new one. If you do so anyway, you will be banned for creating sockpuppets.
    Dismiss Notice
  3. If you wish to change your username, please ask via conversation to tehelgee instead of asking via my profile. I'd like to not clutter it up with such requests.
    Dismiss Notice
  4. Due to the actions of particularly persistent spammers and trolls, we will be banning disposable email addresses from today onward.

    Having issues while trying to see if I could change my title.
    While changing avatar, editing privacy settings, and all of that work fine, for some reason I can't access my own account page, linking (cropped) screenshot.
    Also, using Chrome, if it affects things.

    That's correct. Now that this post is approved, you can make the change.

    I do think it's somewhat problematic for people to not be able to get rid of the humiliating default user titles until they've posted (and been seen with them). Feels like hazing to me.

    If you don't have a post, then the only place that the title is visible is your user page, which no one has any reason to go to since you don't have any posts.

    If you do have a post, you can change it.

    (Plus, it's not really possible for something to be humiliating if it's the default...)

    Lurker here. Petitioning for title change privilleges.
    Also, thank you for this thread, I didn't know what to do about the... unique... humour that QQ!XenForo posseses.
    I mean... It'd be fine it default was the only possibility, but if Custom is an option, it's the only option!
