Stupid question but how do peoples aquire qualifiers like "Ghost in the Machine" or "Great Dragon" ? Is it only by posting, posting, posting?

I looked at mine and I'm still a moving target... Is there a way to know how many messages will I have to post before becoming a shooting target ? ^_^

Is there a list of all qualifiers?

Some titles come from experience, others if my sources are accurate, were bestowed in return for significant donations in a server hardware replacement/upgrade fundraising drive.

Target is a new member, Moving Target is IIRC 50 posts, Running Target is a much larger number of posts.

Any other titles are either from a server donation drive, as indicated, or because someone is some level of admin.

I don't know how many posts you have, but he can stay away for a long time and not be in danger of you passing him. For reference, he has nearly 4,000 more posts than I do, and I'm ahead of you.

Also, remember that the Doc would probably beat us all combined were he not the man of many names.

Does that include the now-nonexistant Lounge posts? Search "only" gives him about 1300 more posts than me, and I'm way behind you two.

Some threads then to be hotter than others and people post more on them.

Chargen threads tend to be good, so are "who's balls are bigger" threads like the Horrors vs Humans and Dropbears, gun threads are popular too.

Gun threads definately. Just look at austere, he joined after I did, but he has surpassed me.

And what happend to Fortune?

I dont know the particulars (not all of them), but last I heard he was moving some where like out of his home country, I heard he was coming to the states, thats all Ill say, its his personal business, though it was posted on a forum and hasnt been heard from in public since. I wasnt one of his close friends, but I believe I read from one of his friends hes alive, just not forum active.
