    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?

    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.

    You should, close by your name in the signature.

    Yes, the hat or the hair in particular! Not seen it before, so it gets the job done i.e. "Carlos was here".

    Your two right "feet" returned along with all the other badges. I quite liked it without the badges. I don't much like the feet, so I will need an exit strategy before they arrive here.

    A possibility... but it would be nicer in the "tittle", to show there
    what each one actually is, not just a post count.

    That I usually appear as a "flux capacitor" and Jaeger as a "newcomer"
    doesn't mean a thing. A post from him is way more important than one of
    mine.

    Nor that I see any of that... As I use thunderbird and nntp to connect,
    I don't see those things.

    Oh, I see them now. What do they mean? :-?
    Hovering the mouse over any of those things doesn't give a hint.

    I think it's some kind of institutional award related to post count. A feature quite common among forums, and presumably easy to implement otherwise it wouldn't be there. Some might say that it's similar to the "stars" awarded to infants in kindergarten, but I couldn't possibly comment on that. You could try and sell them on ebay. On reaching three "feet" you become a god, and then the Administrators try to sell you on ebay, to assist with funding the prefects' end-of-term party.
