We are the noobs
« on: July 11, 2014, 04:02:14 AM »
Yes, finally a topic for the rest of us.
For the purpose of this topic the word noob means a newbee.  It doesn't mean a fool who won't listen and learn.
Maybe it's because I'm using an android phone to post, but I can't seem to change my username.  So my posts are under an email address.  Also, I can't find a place to ask for help.  I'm such a noob. :D

The difference between newbie and a noob is like between the sharp and blunt end of a knife. The former deserves being helped. The latter deserves judicious application of  LART.

The global can be set in your Titan account settings: http://www.cohtitan.com/manage
You cannot make a post under a different handle than your global.
We were heroes. We were villains. At the end of the world we all fought as one. It's what we did that defines us.
The end occurred pretty much as we predicted: all servers redlining until midnight... and then no servers to go around.

Somewhere beyond time and space, if you look hard you might find a flash of silver trailing crimson: a lone lost Spartan on his way home.

Hmm - weird; maybe my account's broken. I clicked the link and logged in. Neither the "email" nor "global handle" line says "Super Firebug", so I'm posting under a name different from my global. In fact, "Super Firebug" doesn't appear anywhere on the page. :/

Linux. Because a world without walls or fences won't need Windows or Gates.

 :o I was pretty sure I remembered changing it there.
The only other alternative is to very, very politely get the attention of an admin. :)

That's funny.
Yes, and kind of the point of this topic.
Thanks for playing along.

I now have 3 bars, if there's something I don't know about this forum, it ain't worth me knowing.

You know what, I'm thinking maybe I don't want to change my screen name.
Maybe I like going by first name last initial and some random numbers.
Johng736 that's me.

In your elbow!
I'm now an elite boss.
That's right, not some smelly simple minded boss.
No sir!
I'm elite now!

Of course I'm still a nOOb.

Well, you did SOMETHING right cuz after clicking that link you actually posted as Super Firebug. See it up above my quote?

Just gonna throw it out there that my global, on the main CoH Titan Network account management page linked above, is my global from the game itself. It is different from my forum Username, which can be seen in the profile section, and appears to be unchangeable except by admin powers.
I used CIT before they even joined the Titan network! But then I left for a long ol' time, and came back. Now I edit the wiki.
