    Default How do I change my byline?

    I just noticed that under my screen name is "Ocean Circumnavigator." How do I change this? I have no idea how this came to be...and it's rather pompous. I've never circumnavigated in my life!

    It could be worse. If you post enough on Pressure-Drop you go through a stage when your status is "Testes Dropping." Good luck w/that.

    Thanks. I set it to "reset" to use the default title for your usergroup and post count (whatever that means). I'll pay more attention to how it changes. Maybe I'll be an SSS Global Master. This could be amusing as long as it doesn't suggest I have testes...

    BTW, a huge APPRECIATION to everyone on SSS for being civilized (most of the time no matter the gender or the sailing experience level or even when asking silly user profile questions. I have no tolerance for web forums with too many trolls.

    Didn't it let you type a unique User Title in the box? Maybe I suggested the wrong spot.

    Also, the Admin could change the default titles Alan set up. That could be fun.


    (P.S. - Friends don't let friends post on Sailing Anarchy.)

    I changed mine. Right under the Reset button there's a box you can type your custom slogan into. Reset takes you back to the default titles that Alan set up.

    Yes, I did see the box, but didn't want to spend any more time trying to think of something pithy. "Kynntana" was too obvious. (I loathe being obviously predictable.)

    "Desert Rat", good one! But you will always be "Mad Max" to me.
