Hi there. . .  

Can we have some information on the new titles and what they mean?  (for those people that don't speak Latin on a regular basis. . . )

Thanks!!!

Well I know that avis means bird, but I can't figure out the rara part.

And what are all the new titles anyway?

I can't list all the new levels - because some of them haven't been reached yet. Hey, we have to have some surprises around here!  

And, with just one exception, all the new levels can be found in a standard English dictionary, guys. For example: Rara Avis

That's an easy one, Sven.

When the software was written over a year ago, the levels topped out at 2,000 posts. Based on the activity I had seen at other UBB forums, that seemed like an almost unattainable goal. Little did I know...

Ok. . . but why did you pick the titles that you did?

Elite
Ascendant
Rara avis. . .

Why these titles?

Thanks. . .

I love them.

I know there is a Praticious...is that correct? It's something like that...

What then?

Member Imperator?
That would be cool?

Do you have a member equestrian? No you can't - cause that would be before Praticious...

Hmm - but if Imperator - then what after that?

Member Deititious lol!!

Oh but of course Sven...that is my job in life - to confuse and to confound...  

Takehe's are really cute - they are big, ungainly looking birds - yet with beautiful colours... and you know what? The feathers on their heads have the texture of cat's fur..so I have 'patted' one...lol!

Yep - so when I get to be a rara avis - I am going to be a takehe...
