Only VIP members (50 btc), Donators (10 btc), Global moderators, and admins can display custom titles.

Are you sure on that? I read somewhere that hilariousandco said that he paid 1 BTC to theymos for the title, but I don't know if that was sarcasm or genuine. (Also, I think it was for the Gold Member title)

And I don't think donators can have custom titles. I referred here for that: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=38071.msg467464#msg467464

50 btc donations? are you kidding me. Then hilariousandco   is a damn billionaire or the 50 btc was when bitcoin was trading at 100 USD some years back?

Probably joking. Out of the 5 Global moderators 3 have titles I would assume that the others just haven't opted to use it.

And I don't think donators can have custom titles. I referred here for that: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=38071.msg467464#msg467464
That looks to be true at least. Mistake on my behalf.

50 btc donations? are you kidding me. Then hilariousandco   is a damn billionaire or the 50 btc was when bitcoin was trading at 100 USD some years back?
I'm almost certain that Global moderators can display a custom title so Hilariousandco likely paid nothing for it. However, the majority of VIP, and Donators donated a while back when Bitcoins price was much less than it is now.

That's not quite true.
VIPs, global mods and admins can set/change their own custom titles, but everyone can display one (eg get one assigned to them by theymos).
An example for that would be Blazed, who's neither VIP nor involved with moderation, but holds the custom title "Casascius Addict".
Custom titles are also given when theymos does name changes, eg for BitcoinPenny (formerly CJBianco), who carries their old name as custom title "aka CJBianco".

tl;dr: Everyone can have a custom title, not everyone can set one for themselves.



Hilarious' "Lamborghini Member" and mprep's "Diamond Member" is poking fun at the Copper Member rank that was introduced a while back.
As you can see, custom titles show at the same place as the "Copper Member" text when people are posting (not on a users profile).
I would assume rickbig's "I'm not a member" is meant in a similar way.

You need to own a Lamborghini to truthfully wear that title.

That was introduced in August 2011, when bitcoin was not soaring so high. You can read the original post here.

If you donate 10 BTC (which pays for about a month of hosting), you get donator status:

My original custom title was Gold Member. Mprep then one-upped me with Diamond Member, so I had to go one further and become a Lambo member.

Well, that's how you become a donator which will give you the option of a custom title. I might have joked in the past that if you buy theymos a lambo he will give you that title though.

This is not (yet) automatic: you need to PM me before donating.
And I do not think it's automatic yet. In that case, I think anyone can have a custom title if theymos wants to active it for that user.
It's a sarcasm by the way  Tongue


My original custom title was Gold Member. Mprep then one-upped me with Diamond Member, so I had to go one further and become a Lambo member.
If I had a chance then I would have a Private Jet Member title, in that case would you think of going more further?  Cheesy

I could not stand the lies against me anymore. I can not prove them wrong too. It's better I live in peace.
So, I am willingly locking mdayonliner. Thank you BitcoinTalk. Be addictive, be a Bitcoiner.

Gold Member... Diamond Member... Lambo Member... Private Jet Member... wouldn't this ultimately lead to Bitcoin Member anyway? ;P

what's the difference with the others, is there any special effects or is it just a regular title?

You don't have to necessarily pay(?). You can ask him nicely or give a valid explanation for why you want to have a a custom title. The chances of getting a custom title are more when you're reputable and have contributed to the community.

Imagine, how hundreds of users are trying to "ask him nicely" after your reply Grin  I think, reputability and contribution to the community should be on the firs place.
P.S. I`m not certain if one need to be a Legendary or at least Hero to leave a reply in this thread, so I tried  Grin
