What title do you get for 450 posts?

I'm really curious what title you get for 450 posts, but I'm too impatient to post three times now to find out.

The titles are really dated, and mostly reference older cards. Should we come up with new ones?

It has been discussed before, but the man who would need to make the change (theory) is mostly not involved in the community anymore, so the likely-hood of getting a change made is slim.

10-14 | Pearl Diver
15-19 | Swindler

1000-1499 | Saboteur

2000-2499 | Mountebank
2500-2999 | Margrave
3000-3999 | Cartographer
4000-4999 | Governor
5000+ | Adventurer

There's a couple of weird things in there. For one thing, Newbie is not a card. Then, Potion costs are ignored so Alchemist is with the $3 cards and Golem with the $4 cards. And the ranges of posts are really small at first but the thresholds for 'leveling up' get a lot steeper after 100, and then again after 500.

Also, the ranks are tied to cost of the Dominion cards, but by no means to their strength. It's weird to see Swindler below Chancellor and Salvager below Spy and Thief. Not to mention Adventurer being the top rank...

My thoughts:
-I like having the ranks tied to costs, and want that to stay.
-Following the above, I would like the cards to be dropped, although Overlord would be great as a title, despite it's cost of . -I'm fine with no card name for 0 posts, but maybe "Watcher", "Observer", or "Stalker" instead.
-Definitely represent some of the newer expansions, Ranger, Page, and Journeyman would be some good ones.
-Prince would be great as the top, because at the only cards costing more could be Possession (), Fortune (), Some of the Castles (-), Colony and Platina at &, and some events ( and), none of which are people.
-Keep the names only as people.

Isn't it to be expected that the ranges get progressively more "difficult" to get? 25 is a number that we perceive as significant and so is 30, but 4825 isn't and the next real milestone at that point is 5000.

IIRC, the ranks are supposedly tied to how cool the name sounds instead of strength.

That's true, but I'd argue that 600 and 700 are more milestone-ish than 35, 45, 350 and 450.

My thoughts:
-I like having the ranks tied to costs, and want that to stay.
-Following the above, I would like the cards to be dropped, although Overlord would be great as a title, despite it's cost of . -I'm fine with no card name for 0 posts, but maybe "Watcher", "Observer", or "Stalker" instead.

-Prince would be great as the top, because at the only cards costing more could be Possession (), Fortune (), Some of the Castles (-), Colony and Platina at &, and some events ( and), none of which are people.
-Keep the names only as people.

I agree with most of what you're saying. Overlord should be the top rank though - it sounds more badass than any other card name, easily beating Prince there, and you could argue that Overlord and Prince are kind of the same cost, although Overlord is easier to get because you don't have to pay it all at once. Yes, I know it's not officially the same currency, but it's easier to compare normal cost and debt than to compare normal cost and Potion.

Oh, and 0 posts should maybe be Survivor(s).

I would also kinda like Champion as the top one, because it sounds cool as well and as a Traveller it has that "takes a long time to get there" thing going. Teacher is good as well.

Oh, and having smaller steps at first is fine to me. There's quite a few people out there who contribute onl occasionally and it's nice for them to have some sense of progress. If ou're a regular, well you will also get those higher rankings in time.

Definitely vote Overlord for the top one.  It should be 5000 Champion and 10000 Overlord or something.

I'd much prefer to choose my title. I don't want to be a Saboteur or Torturer. Maybe I'll stop at 999 posts and make a new account. That would be nicer than making a couple thousand completely dud posts as soon as I hit 1K.
I hope that if the rankings are redone, that I get to be called a Storyteller.

So, we've had this discussion after pretty much every expansion since Dark Ages, and theory didn't change anything after any of those, so I think it's unlikely he'll do anything now.  I mean, you can ask, but don't get your hopes up.

As for why Adventurer in the 6-star slot: go look at theory's avatar.
