My Grandparents were in the teaching profession too.

Please put back Bumpkin as your title

It would not be wise.

Is it because MIF would become a bumpkin too?

No, it would mean that newcomers would not know who I am. That could cause problems.

True enough, but without my title people would be confused. What is a bumpkin they would say.

Hmm, you want the newbies to be darn afraid of you?

How would it look if GIBBY came in here and saw that?

Correct! But I'm too tired today.

How about renaming the real member wheel something different?

How about Special Member?

Nope.

Something stylish like MathNerd, GeniusIsBack, Member of Euler's League or something like that

No one is of Euler's league here, but bobbym is pretty close.

But what is Euler's League?

Someone of intelligence similar to Euler.

Of course, I am not one.

I have a pretty good idea. We can rename the Real Member wheel to just 'Real'

Kaboobly doo!

If Euler were around today he would make mince meat out of the guys we have. Just imagine if he had Mathematica! We would be 1000 years more advanced!

Could you change Real Member to Real?

I think I could but modifications to the forum are and should be done by MIF. It is his forum.
