The other thread has closed but I wanted to say that I think the new user groups are very useful. I do like to get an idea about a user’s main “area of interest”, so to be able to get a quick sense of this via a label next to the name is neat.
It’s an idea I was trying to float a while back but it ended up getting way too complicated. This is a good solution… thanks @wadestriebel
All of this is excellent! It will get more theme and plugin developers, as well as hosting providers involved. This can only be good for CP awareness. The recognition is really appreciated and supports us as well.
I think it’s also great for visitors and CP users as they can find targeted information they might be looking for!
Cowboy Coder and Code Cowboy aren’t necessarily used as positive terms. Perhaps you might fit under “Website Developer” or something similar. I wanted “Turner of Feature Requests into Bugs at 60 WPM” but that seemed a bit long.
So there is no automated way to add multiple titles, the only work around is manually editting the titles. Only mods and admins can do this, from what I can see.
I would rather users choose the title they most closely relate to. That being said, they will still show up in each group, which we now link to in the welcome message.
(we could probably do some more fine-tuning on the welcome message, so if anyone has a suggestion for an edit please use the “Reply as linked topic”)
So, for now, if you would like a mix of two titles you can reach out to me and I will add it for you. Keep in mind, you must already be in the two groups you want to mix, and adding yourself to another group may override your title
