    Yea...but where is the proof that you are so good that you can create you're own title. Firstly there are very few members. Secondly...you created the title like so early on, how can one judge you or it is worthy. Thirdly...a title is hollow when no-one else can compete to achieve it. I mean...anyone can go...yea I know lots about ASoIaF, I'll make my own title. In the end, you'll have 50 ppl with induvidual titles that does not really put them in any rank as it is meant to be because they are not being compared against anyone else. This last bit actually links to the first point. Many others will inevitebly past all those tests that you said you went through to make their own title; then the play about 50 users and titles and what not comes into play.

    :rolleyes: The purpose of this Guild isn't to boast about how you're so much better than everyone else. The purpose of the last rank is to show that you're an expert in a particular area, and if someone has a question, we can refer him/her to the local expert. If it becomes clear that you don't know what you're talking about, you will not be permitted to hold/keep that rank. Also, if you've bothered to look through my first post in the ASoIaF Guild thread (And I don't blame you if you got lost - it's a pretty long post explaining the way things are run in the Guild), you'll see that you must spend at least 4 weeks as an apprentice (1 during your Hedge Knight week, another during your Annointed Knight week, and 2 more before you're allowed to test for create-your-own-rank) researching on material for your paper.

    Returning to your objection about having high/grand ranks, I have stated in a previous post that although I'm iffy on the high/grand thing, if there is enough support and enough reasons that I can see sense in, I'll change that policy. My main objection is that there will be a possibility of misunderstandings that when one person means things in a joking way, the other person will take it seriously. For example, if someone says that "I'm better than you because bla bla bla" and the other one gets offended because the person forgot to put a smilie or whatever, there'll be a fight and the mods will probably get involved in it as well. I'm not interested in causing trouble for the mods. The whole point of this Guild is to have fun and gloat over the WoT fans that they're not crazy enough to have a Guild like us aSoIaF fanatics. ;)

    Meanwhile, it is Renz's and Ice's business if they want to keep their titles private. If they're content in doing that and don't want anyone to "boss around", that's their choice, and I respect that. I'm not going to make them change their minds. And the purpose of this topic is to discuss potential titles for the last rank, not fight over the Guild policy. If you have a problem with it, create a thread stating your problems with the way the Guild is run, or talk to Renz/Ice, or PM me.

    Now, let's prove K'shar wrong and not have duels over titles, shall we? :p

    ... 500 words is one page single-spaced in TNR, 12 point font. It's why I made it that length. :p I know that no one else is as hopelessly lost as I am. ;)
