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

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.
