      It's now also possible to specify when your tinnitus started: if you are already registered on TT, go to https://www.tinnitustalk.com/account/personal-detailsand on the lower part of that page you'll see "Tinnitus Since" text field. Fill it if you like. Also the tinnitus start date can be entered when registering on TT, not mandatory though.

      Well thank you :) Mr. Moderator, the title of which could be tinkered with... to a bit little less serious! Our member click somewhere hinted Members could also do with a new title, I remember her suggesting "Pitiful Sufferer"as an alternative... Member does seem a bit generic, so suggestions are welcome from everyone!

      As an aside,
      Signing up to Tinnitus Talk just got easier than ever: now it's possible to log in directly using a Facebook/Twitter/Google account.

      Ha, "pitiful sufferer" - that's funny. We should start a thread asking for suggestions. "Forced Practitioner of Stoicism". "Tinnitus Insulter". "Tone Head". Maybe I should go to bed...

      Markku's title; keep 'head honcho' (even tho it sounds like a cowboy & I can almost visualise him on a horse);
      moderator new title... 'packing a punch';
      the rest of us... 'mere mortal'.

      I loved DezDog's Tone Head too. :D

      But I think click's latest suggestions are the way to go as they are very fitting, made me giggle a bit and shouldn't offend anyone and waaay more original than the stock ones.

      +1 to DezDog and click

      hmmm... I liked my title from before! ;)

      Not kin to the mere mortal comment. I don't find it funny.... not being grouchy... just opinionated! :)

      I don't particularly go for hierarchy titles. No one is "less" than anyone in this world in my view. Everyone has unique qualities that they contribute to humanity. I respect everyone. Not saying you are being disrespectful, just myway of expressing!

      I contributed before inspecting the site for the changes. It's something I felt important to do for the continuation of the site. It is a blessing to most of us here... ones that post and those that just view.

      Have fun boys....

      Thanks to our fantastic moderators!! You go! High five!!

      ps... I am not having a high T day! It's is not the T that prompted me to comment. Just so you know!

      much love here for you all....

      It was for a long time that even I and Jim had only "Member" as our title. When I created Tinnitus Talk, I purposefully right away edited the default Administrator title to Member, as I thought everybody here were members & that the Administrator gave a feeling of sort of coldness and "bossy" - the feeling of which I hated.

      That changed when several people contacted me through the contact form asking who they could ask for help regarding the site, which prompted me to change my and the moderators' titles to something more appropriate.

      However, since now there's the "staff" badge too - which was added later - the title below the username doesn't carry that purpose any more and basically could be the same one for everybody.

      Which is a point I didn't think of earlier today. Neither did I figure that some people could see the title of Mere Mortal as inappropriate. Maybe because I personally actually think we all are mere mortals in the big picture skewed my view and didn't think too much into it. Point taken and something learned. :angelic:

      Considering all of the above, I'm still giving click and DezDog +1, I especially liked "Mere Mortal" and "Tone Head", but in the end decided on "Colleague". That's a title that should play well for everybody.

      Now to other matters... :couchpotato:

      If no-one else minds then, can I be "El Presidenti"?

      I've just been stopped posting on the other thread about title changes!!!

      I still intend to say my two pennies-worth though!

      I dont like 'colleague' at all. To me that applies to a work situation and reminds me of corporate companies.

      I also think Markku and the others should be distinguished differently as they work for the site and control it. I liked the 'Head Honcho' and also 'Community Manager' titles. Just makes me feel like there's someone there looking after things.

      Just my view

      Hmmm...I never even noticed it said "colleague". I would prefer to something simple like "community member" and I think that board moderators should have their own title.

      I like "Community Member", too! And "Head Honcho" and "Community Manager" are fine with me!

      Community Manager/Member are too long, would span over two lines, look bad.

      It seems newer isn't always better. Reverting back to Member / Manager / Head Honcho.

      Thanks for the suggestions and feedback dear friends! :watching:

      OK, OK, I'm going <grumble moan grumble>.

      Last plea - if you're "Head Honcho", I want to be "Minion".

      OK, I'm in the corner, you won't hear any more from me now.

      'Manager'?, You've been promoted DD!

      Didnt Markku and Jim used to be called 'Community Manager'? I thought that's what I had seen. Well, this has been a rumble in the jungle hasnt it? Proves the motto - ifs its not broken dont fix it!!
