    Yeah Nennius , Wulerdar, and Yinla all have 2012 start dates.

    Mine is 2013 and I don't have the edit.

    So guessing creation date in 2012 (for the custom title and 10 trophy points).

    I seemed to have joined November 2012. Which is also not consistent with Jumbur joining in 2016 and having access to it :(

    I started thinking, underlying account creation date linked to forum name. But that wouldn't seem to be right either.

    Maybe it has to do with the old forum accounts (when they had EQplayers) and creation date for the linkage of the game account to the forum account.

    On the prior board, your name was linked to your account (but you didn't have to register on forums at all).

    These boards changed that, you could create a different name than your underlying account.

    Only the cool kids get custom titles.

    Hmm, Wuledar only has 125 messages, but still has a custom title
    Jokskilove forum account is older than mine, but no custom title...
    Catspaws have the same amount of trophy points, way more messages, more likes, and older account than me, but no custom title.

    Im confused tbh. :confused:

    Is it tied to previously being beta-testing expanions?

    Edit: no new trophy at 1000 likes...

    Don't have it. Never beta tested. You might be on to something.

    Found one that was made in 2019 and he has a special name.

    I beta tested but it was wayyyyy back when you were invited and did not have to pay first lol. Before I made this account on this forum.

    Yes, we have this covered. Trying to decipher why some can add something other than "Augur" under their names

    No one listed them all together, so I put them in a single post.

    Also, here's a screenshot of what the field looks like for those interested:

    I'd be curious if the same people who don't have it also don't have the upload file and delete post buttons.

    Good point, I do not have upload file or delete post - be nice if DW could help us with this and why there are different parameters for users here.

    You have earned a trophy.

    Set my birthday to today, logged out for more than few seconds. And voila!

    But I suggest you don't set your birthday this way, because you can not change it once set. It says you must contact the administrator.

    Sorry DW just had to know.

    Still don't have the custom title option. Or upload files button.

    I'm not sure if what browser we may be using makes a difference.

    I'm on Firefox in case someone determines that to be a factor.

    I can only delete posts if they are less than 30 minutes old(and if no-one has responded to it, I think).

    I do have an "upload file"-button: Accepted file types:zip, txt, pdf, png, jpg, jpeg, jpe, gif

    (Im on Chrome)
    I think they should expand our forum avatar choice, and either let us upload one ourselves, or add images from overseer as avatar-choices. :cool:

    Edit: my delete-button didn't disappear when Accipiter responded....

    I don't have the ability to edit my title and I don't have the Upload File button. The results are the same on Chrome, Edge, and IE.

    Edit: And I can't delete my own posts.

    I wish I hadn't learned this

    Thanks for all the efforts.
    I don't have the upload/delete options either.

    So, to summarize:
    • It's not related to registration date
    • It's not related to trophies
    • It's not related to number of posts.
    • It's not related to browser
    • It's not related to All Access
    • It IS related to the privileges to upload files and delete new posts
    Beta testing is probably a good bet - those who participated in recent beta tests should be put in a special group of users on the forum so they have access to the beta stuff? Would make sense that this group could have some different privileges for posting - at least that's consistent with how other forum software works, e.g. phpbb.
    No beta, no custom title here - or technically, I did participate in beta testing, but last one was Call of the Forsaken, and that email was sent from the SOE forums
