Huh? How?

Admins can color them, I asked cl_out for mine

07-24-2003, 11:52 PM
I've coloured mine invisible :)

Bolded white is pretty.

07-25-2003, 12:27 AM
Yeah, but it's so overdone.

07-25-2003, 12:29 AM
Good. I'll blend in then.

07-25-2003, 02:01 AM
It's about as meaningless as anything else customisable in this forum. I don't see the big deal.

Bolded white is pretty.

Ah, I see. I was curious about that.

Yes, admins can color them, but don't ask me. I'm not even coloring mine :p

I want mine Cid's Knight blue so I can change my custom title to Cid's Knight and trick everyone....that doesn't know of this excellent plan!

07-27-2003, 08:25 PM
Too bad the user CP doesn't let you use "Cid's Knight" as a custom title.

07-27-2003, 10:19 PM
I entered mine myself :p

07-27-2003, 10:26 PM
True, I just did it myself, and changed it back to avoid confusion.

07-27-2003, 10:29 PM
No, Knight isn't censored, because custom titles are bold anyway, and not unbold and coloured like the real title would be :p

07-27-2003, 11:19 PM
Once an admin colors your title, if you want to change it, do you have to ask if you want to keep the color?

I would try changing it myself, but I don't wanna lose my purdy colors. :p But I would assume so.

07-28-2003, 01:20 AM
Then color mine and I will try. Any color is fine, I assume it wont last for long.

Yes. If you change your title, you will lose the color, because the board will not allow HTML in custom titles unless it's done from the admin panel.

You could always change that by hacking, of course ;)

...but then someone would eventually be a smart-arse and put "Cid's Knight" in there in unbolded CK blue (and that smart-arse would probably be me) ;)

Impersonating a moderator is a no-no here.

The Man
07-28-2003, 11:45 PM
I figured as much ;)

I'd still like to impersonate a banned member though, then again I still have "Sugpo" in my formerly known as field so I guess I've got that taken care of ;)

07-29-2003, 06:29 AM
Is it just me or is crono_logical's custom title in variable shades of magenta? :whoa:

Citizen Bleys
07-29-2003, 12:21 PM
No, he's just insane enough to custom code a separate HTML font tag for every bloody letter.

He'll never be a *real* programmer if he doesn't discover laziness FAST.

07-29-2003, 03:17 PM
I already discovered laziness, I only coloured every 2 letters :p

Citizen Bleys
07-29-2003, 04:20 PM
still not lazy enough.

The Man
07-29-2003, 11:26 PM
I don't think colouring every letter would even fit in the custom title area

and cl_out's obviously too lazy to give me a link in my rank, otherwise Brush the cobwebs out of the sky (http://aaron.fools-gold.org) would be my rank :P

There's no width limit for admins.

The Man
07-29-2003, 11:34 PM
I thought there was a 250 character limit. There is for practically everything else in the admin control panel.

Citizen Bleys
07-29-2003, 11:43 PM
I've never hit a limit.

The Man
07-29-2003, 11:45 PM
I'll test something out then :P

edit: there definitely seems to be a limit, I just can't be arsed to count what it is... at least not in twos. We'll see about sorting it out into tens :P

edit 2: yeah, there's a 250 character limit, just like I thought :P

You just have to check the install script xD
$query[]="CREATE TABLE user (
userid int(10) unsigned DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL auto_increment,
usergroupid smallint(5) unsigned DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL,
username varchar(50) NOT NULL,
password varchar(50) NOT NULL,
email varchar(50) NOT NULL,
styleid smallint(5) unsigned DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL,
parentemail varchar(50) NOT NULL,
coppauser smallint(6) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL,
homepage varchar(100) NOT NULL,
icq varchar(20) NOT NULL,
aim varchar(20) NOT NULL,
yahoo varchar(20) NOT NULL,
signature mediumtext NOT NULL,
adminemail smallint(6) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL,
showemail smallint(6) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL,
invisible smallint(6) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL,
usertitle varchar(250) NOT NULL,

The Man
07-30-2003, 01:02 AM
yeah, I couldn't be arsed to do that ;)

but it's definitely a 250-character limit ;)

07-30-2003, 01:13 AM
Yeah, that's the other reason I didn't colour every letter, the resulting code was too long for the field and cut off the last few letters of Indignation :p

The Man
07-30-2003, 07:41 AM
Haha, I figured as much xD

Shoyku wanted to have a rainbow "Administrator" title awhile back, but that wouldn't fit either :P Can't have everything, I guess ;)

Citizen Bleys

Make his custom title into an image. Problem solved.

The Man
07-30-2003, 07:26 PM
hmm... good idea ;)

he's not an admin anymore though, so I can't be arsed doing that ;)

Citizen Bleys
07-30-2003, 08:51 PM
Do it anyways. Blame it on me.

The Man
07-30-2003, 08:56 PM
ok, I'll do that when I can be arsed ;)
