Writer, Fighter, Scholar, are all titles awarded for various activities. Scholar is for research, Writer for collabrative writing, Fighter for debates.

If you don't participate you get Member or member, and Moderator obviously is staff.

yeah i know, but i want the word illiterate. it wouldnt be offensive to anyone because anyone who is illiterate would be incapable of reading it.

i only ask because with all the incredibly intelligent people here, and my piss poor spelling, i feel like im illiterate here sometimes.

peace

now that i think about it, im fine with it just saying member. and if i got mine changed then everyone would want a special title.
peace again

To replace your "member" title.....No.....as a custom title purchased in the ATS store.....Yes.

Maybe if you enumerated the qualifications for being deemed an "illiterate", the council could take it up and decide on whether they think there are enough other members that also qualify to where there would be a percentile need for such a title.

I'm just trying to help, of course.

*this is the damnedest request I've ever seen*

well i originally was going to ask for illiterate writer but that seemed to contradicting.

so i just went for illiterate.

the reason for it is 57.21% of my post have misspelled words or poor grammar, so i wanted to kinda give people a warning before they flammed me. my brother taught me how to cheat in spelling in elementary school , and i now regret it.

i know i could use spell check, but that would take away from me actually improving my spelling.

No flaming is allowed whether you're illiterate or not. I don't use any spell checkers and I'm sure that most of my posts makes it pretty clear that english is not my first language. Many ATS members don't use english as their first language, they are from all over the world. And some are dyslectic too. Don't worry about your spelling. As long as you do your best and don't break the T&C you'll be fine. If someone flame you for poor spelling, they might be the ones who break the T&C.

As long as people can read your posts and properly understand what you are trying to get across, you should be fine


Of course, there are limits, like txt spch, and you will get flamed for that, but generally if someone doesn't understand something they will post asking for you to make it clearer for them. If you've done the best you can and are still getting people being rude about your typing, then report it to the staff. Don't ever get into arguments with these people.
