    We had some discussions about that first title, because "Student Penguin"
    is what I think it originally was, but that didn't reflect well for
    someone (such as yourself) with a lot of experience who just hadn't
    posted much here.

    Thanks :-)

    No, I don't intend to ever change it, unless someone picks the same one.
    I don't feel like posting my own photo either.

    That might well be. I don't remember the specific title we replaced, but
    the discussion was around the phrasing implying the user didn't know
    anything about Linux, when clearly people who do but don't post here
    would be identified as "new to Linux" incorrectly.

    Nice bluff. Although there is a small risk that someone else could choose it for the same reason (i.e. nobody will ever choose that one, so I won't need to change it).

    I see.

    Just in case, I want to clarify something: I will not request my title
    be manually changed, as that of Andreas was (attempted, because he
    displays as "newcomer" now). I do not want the title of an individual
    openSUSE member (me) displayed, I want (when/as possible) a solution for
    all members. I don't consider myself that important.

    As that is not possible, I'll stay contented with the current status :-)

    Ah, then I'll have to get the bitmap, edit the colours with gimp, and
    upload as image ;-)

    We weren't going to make any changes to anyone's title manually - Andreas
    would have been a special case since he's a well-known developer in the
    community, but as I understand it, he opted to go with the default title
    rather than a custom title.
