Hey guys.(and girls) I'm fairly new to the Message boards and i've seen titles under peoples names. Does this have to do with your pirate? How do I change my title?

Hello there Fearless Finnagan and welcome to the message boards-- so glad you could join us.

The rank listed under your name comes from your actual post count. As you begin to post more your rank will rise once you hit certain numbers of posts. The only way we can change our rank is to post more and reach the next rank. Here's a list of the ranks from this thread (you can click on the blue link to see the thread).

0-49 Ensign
50-99 Petty Officer
100-199 Lieutenant
200-299 Gunner's Mate
300-399 Bosun
400-499 First Mate
500-749 Captain
750-999 Commodore
1000-1499 Admiral
1500-2999 Dread Pirate
3000-???? Pirate Overlord

But more importantly than rising in rank by simply creating posts is to just have fun corresponding with fellow posters, post useful and helpful info, seek out help through posts and offer up creative and fun posts and even suggestions and feedback. Your rank will surely rise before you know it and a lot of friendly posters will get to benefit from your sure to be great posting.

So kick your feet up, have some fun and enjoy your stay here...and once again welcome aboard!

I think it's to do with how many 'yars' you get or something.

You can also change the picture that appears under your name, just click
choose Avatar and choose, in case you wanted to know that.
