    Just as a place to list whatever changes I make as I make them. Did I mention I'm making some changes? I'm making some changes.

    Changes List
    -Minimum characters per post reduced (back?) to 1
    -"Prevent SHOUTING" turned (back?) off
    -IP logging turned (back?) on
    -Stopped words like "admin" being censored in user titles (still no idea how the heck this happened in the first place)
    -Filling in the "Referring Website" field is no longer mandatory for registration

    I still can't find that blasted Post Recount button >_>

    the Reason admin gets censored is so people don't put "administrator" as their custom user title, as captain fabulous has done.

    Change the post count required to have a custom user title. I dunno what it is right now, but it's a ways off for me. Make it like 50 at the highest.

    No, I think you should have to earn that privilege. When I got mine, it was after 250 posts and 100 days, and it felt like I had accomplished something, dammit. Don't just give this out to anyone.
    However, it is hard to judge what the requirements should be. Someone like Shadow the Past, whose posts favor quality over quantity, deserves some custom user title action, whereas someone like whyme does not.

    I think 250 is fine. It's like a rite of passage to reach that mark, and the only problem I've ever seen arise from it is one person in particular having the audacity to spew spam for 250 posts racing for a custom title. RYUUUUTAAAANNN

    Butbutbut its so far awayyyyyyyy D:

    Still, maybe make it a combo of a post requirement amount (NOT 250) and amount of time reigstered, same as the avatar priveleges, so those who try to spam their way to 250 (WHICH I REALLY DONT WANNA KEEP THAT WAY) don't get more priveleges than those who stay a while and have productive posts.

    Because by default it is censored so normal members can't call themselves Admins or Mods.

    I know that. However you only stated the reason, you did not state that it is there by default. I provided additional more useful information.

    A couple other things that can stand to be changed:

    The maximum length on custom user titles is too short, especially when I'm pretty sure one of the DEFAULT user titles actually EXCEEDS said limit (the "chosen one" one).

    The timer. I understand it serves a practical purpose (namely preventing spambots from going totally apeshit), but the length could maybe be reduced. Personally, I would be happy with 50 seconds instead of 60, as I almost never get a wait time longer than 10 seconds, yet I get wait times shorter than 10 seconds all to often.

    I'll have to agree with cheese on this one. It's anoying when you post a long message, then go to another tab to answer a quick question. It was ment to prevent spam, but it's not like that's a threat of that in miraigamer.

    This is a good idea, but we can't overdo it.
    The rule was made to prevent some, not to inhibit all (even if that's what it ends up doing)

    Old Jacob and New Jacob have now been merged to form Mega Jacob (Deluxe Edition).

    Also:
    User accounts merged. GameGenie747 has been deleted.
    You need to Update User Titles and Ranks and Rebuild Thread Information counters now if you wish to remove traces of GameGenie747 from last post information and to update JakeXanth's new user title.
    Sorry, you don't have permission to access the administrative controls on this page.
    If you need to access this page, ask your lead administrator to enable your permissions for this page using the Administrator Permissions section of the control panel.
    I FUCKING KNEW IT

    Glitches so far:
    • I have 41 ghost messages in my inbox that I can't delete
    • I can't edit my user title
