    Default How to change my title?

    Looking at this posting you see that my title is "openSUSE Program Manager" but this is not correct anymore and I tried changing it in my profile - I changed the field occupation (see https://forums.opensuse.org/members/a_jaeger.html ) but this does not have an effect. Is there another option to change this display of my title?

    AFAIK forum users can not change that. I can't change mine, which is
    only an indicator of the number of posts I made.

    You can change your "avatar": click on "settings" at the top right. Also
    the "profile picture". I don't really know the difference, as I access
    the forum via nntp, with Thunderbird. I don't see those things.

    This can only be done by the high brass of these forums. We will try to get the message through.

    Andreas, we reported the post, will draw Kim / admin's attention. Maybe it's better to PM Kim Gronemann, and tell him what the desired title should be.

    You could also consider how to show openSUSE membership status. I have
    it, but no way to show it there - except my signature, of course.

    The list of members is public, so it could be automatically applied,
    somehow.

    It's not required for membership of the forum.

    Where did you get that hat?

    This suggestion has been made before, unfortunately, doing that mapping
    isn't high on our priority list as it would require custom code and
    interaction with the vBulletin database. Not all members have an account
    here, so we'd have to check every single member every single time, which
    means if there were overrides (such as forum staff with custom titles),
    that would overwrite their status every time unless an exception were
    coded.

    Thumbs up Re: How to change my title?

    Now I'm a newcomer - I guess I deserved that. But it actually reflects better what I'm here at the forums

    Thanks, the change is fine!

    No, but it would be nice to display it. Not that openSUSE memberships
    fills much of a purpose, IMHO...

    The avatar? I just played around a bit. It is on the standard list,
    there are about 300 of them. The browsing is tedious, though, only about
    6 are shown each time.
