Was "King of Nothingness" a special request on your part?

Yes, I specifically asked for that title. I guess if I hadn't, I would have gotten "1337 M4cNN G33k"

I suspect that whoever created that user level (it must have been one of the other admins) just needed a placeholder, and came up with... that! Since it was to be overridden by Kev's custom title anyway, it didn't really matter, I suppose!

it was indeed just a placeholder. we've been considering revamping the membership titles several times over the past few years. maybe, once the new design goes live, we'll consider it again.

Yes certain people get special ranks. This has been going on forever. Just as my "King of Nothingness" request.

I think that one was just given to him.

phil has been around forever.

I always wondered what that useful thing he did was.

I think moki has a special title too.

Yeah, I wondered. What's up with that ? Must have kissed some mod's butt or something.

I don't think phil is the butt kisser type. And the mods aren't the type to reward such butt kissing. He must have done something useful. On occasion.

He gave me some neat before concert photos of Dave Navarro once. Back in the early dreadlock days. That was pretty darn useful.

I think it was him anyhow.

True, I know that he's not that type. So, I guess he didn't literally kiss butt but just figuratively
