Default Now possible to edit your own usertitle!

Many people have given me the feedback that they hate the default usertitles that vBulletin gives users as they get more posts ("Junior Member", "Member", etc.).

I totally agree, so I've just turned on the ability to edit your own usertitle. To do this, head to your user profile and scroll down a bit to "Custom User Title". Right now, it's only available after you have had a small number of successful posts (that make it past the spam filter). If that seems to work out I'll open it up to everyone...but that's a good excuse to make your first post.

Depending on how this goes I would like open up avatars and add more user profile fields (institution, user blogs, etc).

Go nuts.

It might be useful to have some suggestion for how to usefully use this. Having just tried out the option you only have 22 characters which isn't enough to put your full affiliation, but would be enough to put your real name (if you choose to).

Thanks Simon. It should be 25 characters, I'll double check, and maybe up it to 30.

The intent is to let a bit more personality through for users, but at their discretion. Some may want their real name, or their institute, or the tools they wrote...others may want something snarky. At least for that field, it's not my intent to impose a structure on it, but we'll see if that works. It's trivial to easily add specific fields like institution.
