Re: Comments on: CoS Forums

Ok, just because I like to suggest extra work: I think that Unspeakable would be a great title, but it should come after Secret Keeper or Curse Breaker. That would mean sliding all the other titles around. Sorry I didn't just come up with one that would substitute for Experienced Magic User.

I do like Dragon Researcher.

Re: Comments on: CoS Forums

"Unspeakable" may have replaced professor as usertitle by the look of it.

Re: Comments on: CoS Forums

The Prefects will become Aurors and the Professors *may* become Unspeakables. That's still in the works.

I'll rejig the titles when I get a moment later.

Re: Comments on: CoS Forums

While there are lots of title changes would it be possible to change banned to expelled as that would be cool and in keeping with the books?

Not sure. Expelled has a juvenile sound to it whereas banning sounds more final and encompasses the more 'mature' member better. We may introduce "Excluded" or "Suspension" for lesser 3-point warnings, but that's an off-the-cuff idea and not one we've discussed.

Re: Comments on: CoS Forums

*teary eyed* At least I graduated from Hogwarts

The changes are really exciting!

The Profs could become Wizengamot members, and perhaps the Mods can be Unspeakables?


Since CoS is now encompassing more of JKR's world than Hogwarts, how about "Squib" for "banned"? Or "Obliviated", "Wand snapped", "Banished" or "Vanquished"? I'm guessing "Fed to the Giant Squid" would result in some people trying to gain the title?

Re: Comments on: CoS Forums

I think that Auror and Unspeakable for Prefects and Professors is great. It may take a very very long time remember to refer to them by their new titles.

Wand snapped, or oblivated sound the best. Squib might word too.

The admins do need a new title. Maybe Grand Sorcerer/Sorceress works better for them.

Partly why I'm weary to change it.

Re: Comments on: CoS Forums

I think banned should be banned - boring and to the point. There's no reason to reward people for bad behaviour with a funny title.

Oh I love that title, registered animagus and I like the auror's idea for prefects. Unspeakable also sounds very important too.

I think your right about that. I know of a few of my friends that would get banned just to have "fed to the giant squid" to be their title.

I don't think the person labeled "Wand Snapped" would find it too funny. Personally, I like "Wand Snapped" or "Banished". "Wand Snapped" sounds like a permanent ban though.

I like the new titles though. Very creative and it's nice to feel like I've gradulated.

Re: Comments on: CoS Forums

How about Drop-out? If anything for banned members, it shouldn't be anything funny or cute. If not, then Banned is good enough.

Drop-out would show that they came here at their own risk and didn't do what CoS approves of. They did it to themselves, they chose that way. I don't know what Im talking about .

Registered Animagus is a nice one.
