Hey! This is new!

This is where we confer honor on those who have earned the title of Prophet. Or, where we mock them. One or the other.

Hey! This is new!

Postby Capellini on Thu May 29, 2008 9:01 pm

Yes, voice in my head that represents Pastafarian community as a whole, yes it is. And now I can hear you asking for what purpose it exists.

This new section is where we will give those people who are so dedicated (or pathetic) to have reached the title of Pastafarian their own unique monkier, should they want it.

But don't think this is an easy matter of just asking and getting. Hooo no my friends.

Here is how this will work. Anyone who has the title of Prophet will start a thread here requesting a title, and listing the attributes they feel, beyond just being a Prophet, make them deserving of such an honor. THEN, the rest of the community will offer suggestions, a mod or admin will start a poll to vote, and then the mod staff will make a final decision between the top two winners.

So there you go. You wanted custom ranks? You've got something a lot more fun, if you ask me.

I wish to know if the new rank we get can be changed, if our inclination or whimsy changes.

How is that missing the point?

As in all things FSM, likelihood of success varies proportionately with your ability to kiss Cap's ass :)

I like the idea of suggestions. I'm not as thrilled with the idea that a specific title could be assigned without my having veto power.

I suggest that, before titles are suggested, voted, and assigned to regular members, that the mods and admins must go through this process first so that they can work out any bugs in the process.

Dude, 2/5 of the people up for new titles are mods. WoE and I are in the same boat you are. Roll with it!

Nobody's gonna vote you a name you completely hate.

Anthropologist Freudian slip?

Also, there are 10 people who could get new titles, not 5.

For some reason, I thought that said Anthrapologist...like the Catholic apologists, but not.

There are 5 active prophets. The others with 5000+ points already have unique titles, or aren't regulars anymore.

Duke will be back at some point(I hope... :? )
RRR is active
Black Bart is active
I am active
farfalla is active
Capellini is active
Rainswept is active
Earthrise is active
Warlord of Elephants is active
Moral Minority is active


Bold already have ranks.

That leaves seven without ranks, but the other three could theoretically be changed. Either way, and even if Duke isn't counted (I miss him) it is not five.

You fail at mathematics.

I don't count duke.

I think I counted you and MM as the same person. Hard to tell you apart much of the time.
