I've been an administrator on some forum sites where sometimes maverick moderators would change user titles for specific members just for fun. (Besides technical work administrators are often called to duty to restrain playful moderators.) Another fun moderator plaything is the word filter, where when a member posts one word it is changed into another word when the post is displayed. That's the thing that turns **** into ****. (I just typed asterisks. You can use your imagination.)

I've found it interesting on some sites where members can customize their titles. Just like signatures there are rules, and "administrator" and "moderator" are always automatically off limits.

Some sites have contests and raffles to change member titles as the reward, or to award the privilege to have a larger avatar image. I don't know if DC has that.

Let's run a contest to pick MsMofet's title. The winner gets to pick her title.

Who knows? Maybe she'll win...
