I think there is a certain charm to admin-chosen titles

user-chosen ones are really forced and uncool

Agreed.

Also please trim your sig. No one wants to read that once let alone have it dominate a page and web ut is longer than 90% of your posts it's just a bit silly.

This is a relevant place to discuss such issues.

Or you could simply turn off signatures if it's that big of a deal, cause I ain't trimming **** for you.

I'm glad you can speak for everyone on this board though, what with the "no one wants to read it once". Cause tbh it looks like you're the only one who cares.

Does anyone have anything to say that actually connects to the idea of planning a convention on these boards? Like, for instance, feedback on the suggestions I made earlier?

Just to remind people of Aaarrrgh's suggestions...
Aaarrrgh wrote:
OK, time to make some proper suggestions which might make this happen. I suggest we create a Convention Committee with three positions:
Convention Overseer - This should probably be a GobO. The person with the power and the vision to make this happen.
Contest Manager - The person who keeps track of the different contest, who is running what, what prizes and awards there are for different things, etc.
Event Manager - The person who keeps track of everything that isn't a prize-awarding contest, such as games, Q&A's, discussion threads, etc.

Then anyone who has an idea for a contest or event submits it to the appropriate manager, who evaluates the ideas and gives a first yes/no. Then the managers bring all the things they approve of to the overseer, who gives final approval and puts together a Convention schedule, which would then be double-checked and approved by both the Managers and the Site Admins, and we'd be ready to roll!

From the perspective of someone who has never participated in or organized an online event of any real magnitude, this sounds like a reasonable setup to me.
