I just discovered something....odd. I went to put "Leader of lost souls" as my Custom User Title. And for some reason it bleeped it out. Like a curse word. Some of you might already know this, but I just thought it wierd enough to post about.

Words like leader for usertitles and such are bleeped out so other users or newer ones won't think the person using the word is a staff member.

Yeah, that's a vB thing, by default it'll censor out certain words that are put into usertitles - for the reason listed above - unless the settings are changed (which doesn't seem to be the case here).

Just for the curious, a full list of the words that are automatically censored:

admin forum moderator vbulletin leader

It's still possible to bypass, as I do it sometimes.
But not usually, just to have fun skipping around it.
But I think that a User Bar or Name Color would point that out, although Cowrie's Sylphiel's userbar is... invisible?

For example, some members that think supporters are staff merely for the color. >_>

I wouldn't go bypassing the ingrained restrictions, either. D:
