    Well then why does no one seem to have one?

    Only PF contributors get a custom title, and those appear on their profiles only.

    They were removed from public view when the science advisor ribbons were added. You don't even get one if you don't have a ribbon.

    Hmm...I forgot about those, but maybe that's something to fix with the upgrade. Either give them back to contributors or take it out of the description of contributor perks. I lean toward just permanently doing away with it since it really didn't add much. What do others think?

    I loved those titles!!!! I want them back. Mine was "older than dirt", Tsu's was "older than Evo", MIH's was "chocoltating". We used to send fun messages with those titles.

    OMG!!! I had forgotten about chocoltating too! But I thought that was all in the "location" box. Geez, I must be getting old if my brain is getting this leaky!

    I looked there, but all I see are options to edit (1) email & password, (2) date of birth, (3) homepage url, (4) instant messaging, (5) additional info: biography, location, interests, occupation, email username, and email server. Am I just missing something exceedingly obvious here?

    It's just above 'date of birth' on mine, so maybe one of us is special.

    Did you clear you cache? Do you have special mentor doo-hickies? I haven't the foggiest. :frown:

    Well that's a pain in the butt! Thanks, I'll talk to Greg about this. Either that or I'm locked into my current custom title forever... spooky. :bugeye:
