I've noticed the titles we receive under our little profile pictures when we post. I've seen this on other forums but haven't paid much attention to it in the past, but Egyptian Dreams is far better than most of the other forums I've encountered, and I must confess I'm getting hooked on this site!

Anyway, how is it determined who receives which title? I see mine says "Scribe," which I rather like.

The rank is determined by number of posts.

Citizen : 0-99 posts
Scribe : 100-499 posts
Priest : 500-999 posts
Vizir : 1000-1999 posts
Pharaoh : 2000+ posts

Some of us (Segereh, Isisinacrisis, and myself) have special titles. That's mainly due to the large number of posts we have made.

So for roughly 400 more posts you will be a scribe Very Happy
After that: Priesthood!

The stuff in the signature:
"Lady of the Two Lands who lives on Maat, Lady of Charm, Mistress of the Double Plumes, L.P.H, Hereditary Princess, High Priestess of Seshat and Sekhmet."

That we just make up ourselves Laughing I don't remember who started it (was me or Segereh) and we just decided to have some fun with it. We did actually put some thought into it.

I liked some of the titles I read about, and decided to dedicate myself to Seshat since she's the goddess of mathematics and learning. Cool

The Sekhmet part was a joke. Somehow a rampaging lioness sounded like fun (even though she's ferocious and blood thirsty).

I figured it had something to do with the number of posts we submit. I remember being a Citizin, and then I just noticed I'm a Scribe. What surprises me is: I've actually made over 100 posts?! I had no idea I'd posted so much here already.

Well, just goes to show how much I've been enjoying this site in so short amount of time.

I've enjoyed the signatures you and others have given yourselves. I've been trying to think of some lines for myself but haven't arrived at anything yet. I don't just want to copy someone else's creativity.

And why not Sekhmet, the Destroyer? She's so cuddly. I'm sure she appreciates her priestesses as much as Seshat does (though Sekhmet's one goddess you wouldn't want to offend, so step lightly!).

Those post boundaries seem massive! Can you not make them a teensy bit smaller? If you added more denominations then people would feel happier...and we could all stop being citizens. What about craftsman, High Priest, Prince/Princess of Egypt or, for the select few (i.e. moderators)- Gods! Mwa ha ha!

Maybe not.

Well Psusennes, you only have 63 more to go at this point Smile
The number of posts have been set by Kevin. I think he will leave it this way.

Kmt_sesh: time flies (and so do posts) when you're having fun.

Editing is not something that will be available to you. Only moderators and admin can edit posts.

It's fine the way it is - you just have to keep posting to make sure you go up in rank Wink

This has been mentioned before. It is to prevent anyone starting a flame war and then editing their posts to make them look innocent. I'm not likely to change this policy anytime soon.

If you preview your posts first, you can check it before hitting the submit button, Psusennes. Smile

Psusennes wrote that almost four years ago! Laughing In fact, I can't remember the last time I saw Psusennes around here.

I noticed a very old post of mine a few before Psusennes's. I was very new to ED then. Gees, I was happy that I'd already written 100 posts!

More than 6,200 posts later, and I'm still here. Very Happy

LOL yes, I noticed it was an old post and wondered if Psusennes was still around.
