Forummers of Total War Heaven

Many articles have been submitted to both M2TWH & RTWH over the years and much effort has been expended by non-staff but us staff are greedy and we want more so we're going to run a wee scheme that will both thank those who have contributed as well as encourage further contribution.

Custom titles
Yes. You heard that right. We will hand out custom titles to people who submit articles.

Here is how it's going to work.
If you submit four articles, you will gain a "tier 1" title.
If you submit seven articles, you will gain a "tier 2" title.
If you submit ten articles, you get to choose your own title.

The titles on offer are:
RTW
Tier 1: Centurion
Tier 2: Legate

M2TW
Tier 1: Ministerialis
Tier 2: Banneret
ETW/Napoleon
Tier 1: Rake
Tier 2: Gentleman


Shogun 2
Tier 1: Sensei
Tier 2: Roshi


This scheme applies for all future articles submitted and is also backdated to include articles submitted in the past that are hosted on our two front pages.

The articles eligible are:
-Strategy or gameplay articles for both M2TW & RTW.
-Modification tutorials for both M2TW & RTW.
-History articles for both M2TW & RTW.
We will also count hosting & presenting the forum awards. For practical reasons, we will not be backdating this beyond the most recent awards (which do count).

We will not be keeping count of articles submitted and it is up to the forumers themselves to keep count of their own articles and contact mods to request their title.

If all your content submitted is M2TW-specific, then you will get the relevant M2TW title. If you have submitted for both games, you get to chose whether you have the M2TW or RTW title.

A couple of pointers...
We're giving out rewards here so we expect any submitted content to be up to scratch. Any articles requiring major correction or amendment beyond html coding or otherwise deficient will not be considered. TwH mods have the final say on this matter and any complaints or issues will be dealt with over email.

Staff are welcome to avail of this scheme for their own submitted content if they wish and there is no issue if anybody wishes to collect their custom title at a later date. This scheme isn't going to run anywhere and there is no time limit as to when you can cash your cheque.

For practical reasons, anybody who qualifies for selecting their own custom title gets one go at picking it so make sure you're happy with it as there are no second chances, unless you feel like submitting another 10 articles!

Feel free to discuss this and if you have suggestions on how the scheme can be improved, let us know.

It's only fair that somebody who may have contributed 3 articles back in the early days of RTW being released should be eligible in the same way as more recent submissions.
Like me?

I don't believe I understand correctly. This custom title will be universal throughout HG or just in RTWH?

Indeed. Like mine!

(This is the first time I've pointed it out and I've had it for like a month now!)

Just as some bodies, from the moment of birth, are endowed with beauty, while on others nature from their very beginning bestows blemishes and wrinkles, so with souls too, some are distinguished at once with extreme grace and attractiveness, while others leave a trail of sombre and deep gloom. ~Michael Psellus, Chronographia

"We will not be keeping count of articles submitted and it is up to the forumers themselves to keep count of their own articles and contact mods to request their title."
Although after justing counting it appears you have 4, so enough for tier 1.

History articles to me, strategy articles... elsewhere. Though I can also upload them if necessary.

Good choice, Terikel. But wouldn't something more barbaric suit you better?

I think you should offer "Captain" as a Tier 1 title as well as the other two for both games (M2 and Rome). Just an idea; no self interest there...

Captain is actually the standard title for cherubs unless they have their own titles. Besides we thought it was a little too generic and wanted to give folks something a little more atypical as a reward.

I also have a question about the "HG Alumni" title. I saw SubRosa had it for a while then it went. Why?

I really should write more articles. I already have whole page of ideas...

AAR Coming real soon :P

HG Alumni is a title given to former staff for excellence of services rendered, i.e. not all former staff get it.

SubRosa is a modest soul and didn't want to stand above her peers so she asked that we put her back to the usual and standard title for all forumers.

P.S. You'd be very welcome to submit some articles. Your knowledge of the game is excellent so I've no doubt that you have some new stuff to share with us.

Much more dignified. Your contributions to this site really are incredible.

Imperator (Imperial times)
Barbarian King (post imperial)

So, thirty more articles/presentations to complete my personal cursus honorum...

Edorix has earned the right to choose his own custom title.

He has chosen the title of 'Legendary Warrior.'

Ten more qualifications and he can choose another...

Congratulations, and enjoy your custom title.
