» Forum Titles are little snippets of personalised text located underneath your icon.
» They are not editable by members, but can be bestowed by the website staff, after a history of good behaviour and regularly joining in and contributing to the site and forums.
» Once a staff member believes you to be qualified, they will ask you what text you would like to be displayed there. Keep in mind that there is a 15 character limit.
