Thanks to the great ideas and incessant pestering of several long-time players, including the Heigh Leigh Irregulars, we now have a Title / Achievement system available for horn tooting.

Titles can be earned doing various things in the game. There are a few titles that are achievable by relatively new players, but for the most part, the Titles require a long time spent in the game, and are intended primarily for those sturdy souls who feel like they have long ago accomplished everything there is to do in the game.

In most cases, you will be alerted when you gain a new title with red text, and the newly earned title will automatically become your active title.

You can change your active title from your detective page. When you have one selected (other than the default "Sleuth" title), it will show up in the message boards
<------- over there

The only titles I have auto-grandfathered in for users are the writing related ones (for authors of SMs and intros). Many of the other ones will be trivial to earn for those of you who have already passed the requirements. For instance, the next time you raise your Tiger or Steepers standing, you may see several new Titles unlocked.

I realize that several people were already maxxed out on collectible books, so I've made it possible for you to find a few more books.

Thanks again to everybody who helped me out with this update. You know who you are.

This is great! :D

Just one thing though. After getting the Assistant Postman Title, I tried to return a book to the Librarian in London and kept getting kicked back to the login page. This makes it somewhat difficult to do cases since the Librarian is also my contact. Any help is greatly appreciated! :)

Wow, this is wonderful. Great idea, guys! Thank you Ben for setting it in motion, and for everyone who made this happen.

Ha, "Tale Spinner" sounds so... devious. I - like - it! Of course, my long term goal will be becoming Bablefish. Now, my motivation for doing multi-city SMs is back! Thank you!

Nice! But besides being logged out after trying to return a book to the Librarian, I'm unable to enter the catacombs in Cairo. And I was hoping so much to achieve the title of bibliophile! :)

Woohoo! Thanks Ben! Hey what is this as I type? I little red squiggly line underneath Woohoo as if it's trying to tell me that I have a misspelling? This could be a big help for all the typos that I have a tendency to make! :-D

I also keep getting kicked back to the log in page when I try the Librarian and I can't finish my case :-(

I love the Titles/Achievements though. Verrrry nice :-)

Actually ctown and Heim, it's a feature of Microsoft Word that works only with Firefox browsers. :)
