It's the next rank above 'Executive Director'.
The word should not be miss-used in this way...
It's nothing more than a light-hearted representation of the number of posts made by that person. I don't think that's remotely disrespectful, so please, lets not go down that route.

True but it is still not a good idea and other people may find this more disrespectful from myself.

Maybe we could change it to "Please stop me from posting" , "Too many posts" or even "I thrive on posting" as they do in the Miniclip forums...

Fine maybe we can have TOC/FOC owner so something like "FGW owner" or "EWS owner" as it ties in nicely with "Executive Director"

Shut your mouth Chaz ;) :lol:


IMO, this is a rather silly debate, you look at Simming's MSN name, nobody from the forum went up & gave him a Boll**ing....

I understand, it may be offensive, but, does that mean the whole word God is NEVER to be used.

(I spose what you really mean is, it is offensive to people to make me a God...)

A MSN name is a bit different to a group of people on the forums and I do disagree with anyone who's MSN name is 'God' and the word 'God' should not be used out of place but again using it in a swearing way is something somebody says not a name which the people that run a railway forum should call people that have made more than 1,550 posts...

I don't want to get into this any further as I do not reguard myself as a highly 'religious' person but I do not feel that this is right...

I agree with you 86242 as you can't call God someone who is mortal and also God has nothing to do with railway rungs..

EDIT: Good to see my idea was used ;) :P
