Love is like a magic penny

if you give it away you'll have so many
they'll be rolling all over the floor

Oh ok. Weird that it's not on by default. I would have assumed it was.
nah, it makes sense that only staff get titles by default. It's not the TR way, of course, but I get it for other forums.

TR has a complex system of government.  raven may be Imperatrix, and reign may be Lifelong Supreme Leader, but only I am your President.  only I have a mandate from the will of the people.  I am the leader of, by, and for the people of TR.

Weird.

Raven, I haven't looked in membergroups/permissions at all. Does Pandora have the same as everyone else?
What title do you want?
Well hell, I don't know.  I was gong to go with something appropriately beep-boopy... But I'm also not clever so I'm open to suggestions!
Editing the custom profile wasn't turned on for regular members.
Woohoo!  I feel much better knowing I wasn't being a complete window-licker this time!
Just because you're unique doesn't mean you're useful.

Why not go back to the classic Betty Beep Boop?  :unsmith:

but since you're only the president, you can't make any decisions

it's true, the president is not as powerful as people think.  I have all those checks and balances from congress and the judiciary.  there are independent agencies which are within the executive branch, but nonetheless are not under my authority.  hell, I can't even tell the AG what to do.  then there's all the red tape holding back my political appointees at the tops of all the departments, with the purpose of preventing political interference, but with the side effect of creating an awful lot of slack between management and workers.  then there is even more red tape holding back all management, appointed and career, dealing with financial and other conflicts of interest (which are particularly acute when you're the motherfucking federal government), but which have the side effect of further weakening management.  one of my predecessors said that his biggest surprise about being president is seeing just how much passive aggressive behavior there is in government.  as he put it, "I give an order, and just nothin' happens."

but one power I do have is to order drone strikes.  so watch your tone, or your lifelong rule might turn out shorter than you think.
