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.

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. :)

OK, but I'm not on Firefox! I did switch over to Google Chrome though so that must be what it is!

These new titles are definitely great, but they seem to be causing some bugs in the game. I received this error trying to enter the catacombs in Cairo and sounds like another player received the same error trying to enter the cargo holds on the Sleuthatainia.

"Python syntax error at maze.spy:87 - unindent does not match any outer indentation level for earned_achievement in earned_achievements:"

Please help Ben!

Both the Librarian bug and the Catacombs/Ship Hold bugs are now fixed. Let me know if you see any others.

Good luck!

Oh, and CTown: it seems like every browser except IE has given you spell check in text boxes since about 2007. (I know it's helped my spelling).

am I right then in assuming that if there was a Villain hunt title(s) for someone to achieve, they might not get it/them til they did another villain hunt to kick the achievement counter over?
