"Regular" can be (technicially) faked


#1

Look

Do you see this?
I actually don’t have regular rank but if i type here “Regular”

I have faked regular rank

And the worst thing is

“Regular” rank is shown right below name, and when name isn’t shown, regular is just where name is

So i will reccomend moving “Regular” somewhere else

Just because you set your name to regular doesn’t mean you will be shown as a regular user. Only regulars have the word “Regular” just off to the right of their username in the forums. It might confuse people for a second, but the lack of the “Regular” tag and missing Regular badge should easily prevent people from being tricked (with the possible exception of new users).

Well,
i just saw a possibility of doing something like that and,
wanted to report something like this can be done.


#4

It’s not like the title matters to anything lol


#5

The only real way to tell is if it’s by someone’s name in a forum post. See to the right of my, @vtipoman, @Arkive86’s names in this thread for instance.

Honestly it doesn’t matter, it’s a title with 0 benefits. most people wont check profiles, and even when they do the badge will say otherwise. it just makes you look a fool. :saxophone:

Kinda sad if people do this because they think it makes them seem more special tbh
