After gauging public opinion in THIS thread, and painstaking analysis of the results with the help of some pivot tables, graphs & pie charts, the administration have decided on the title 'Bluelight Crew'.

If any ex-staff would like this to appear below their username in place of the word 'Bluelighter', please hit the report button on this post and request it. Your request will then be considered by the admins.

Edit: The Report Button is the one that looks like this
up on the top right of every post.

It's that simple. :)

I'll bounce this thread around Bluelight to ensure we get everyone.

This choice of title SUCKS, but at least it's better than "I used to be a mod."

Nice that the old staff is getting some recognition though! I mean really, nobody ever reads the archives.

I'm not so sure that I was a moderator long enough for something like this to apply, but why not? Ever since wesmdow died I've begun to visit the site again...

Why do you want a title then if it sucks?

Kerrigan, I think you deserve the title, you were certainly a noted moderator.

As we go, I guess.

I'll start making changes when I get a chance, as they come in.

I agree with swilow about kerrigan. I don't think we're going to impose any restrictions on this one (maybe an exception for people who were a mod for like one day and were then banned, or something...)

if it sucks so hard, why have you asked for it? ;)

I asked for it because there is no alternative, other than to not be recognized at all. :p I think the idea of recognition is wonderful but was long in coming. But "crew" is so lame and boring. I picture all of us "crew" sitting in little boats being yelled at by a coxswain.

Crew also implies that we are still on staff, which we aren't. The two answers that tied for third, "BL retirement home" and "greylighter" are each more descriptive, appropriate and humorous than crew.

'bluelight crew' has more history at bluelight than any of the other suggested titles, many of which were pure comedy.

even if they choose not to take the 'crew' title, ex-staff are always recognised: Thanks Staff Members

ultimately, it's what the title stands for, not the title itself which is important. i think 'crew' is a good compromise of respect, information, brevity, etc.
