Probably just some staff member who knew of your relation to the Chir Bros. and decided to make a joke out of it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was me.

I think it's because you are now a Super Secret agent man working for Chif Brother.

I don't particularly like it, and would rather the default or something that better identifies me as an individual, not that identifies me by who my brothers are.

I'm not, and it does bug me when people identify me by being related to them yet I don't associate myself with them online, since I prefer my own self-identity to be what people look at online.

So basicly, you want to be yourself online.

Both you and I know that things tend to leak on the internet, something like this was bound to happen sooner or later. why can I change my Member title.

Most online LEGO communities know that Aanchir and Lyichir are my brothers, however BZPower is the only LEGO community that ever seems to care about that. Eurobricks, Brickipedia, RRU, Brickset, and many others know they're my brothers, but on all of those sites I've never seen someone identify me as "Aanchir and Lyichir's brother".

If the Staff selected me for something like this, I'd feel pretty special

then they would rue the day that they took away the current member title of Voltex

I don't know how close-knit those sites are, but I think the fact that quite a lot of members on this site know and have met you three personally has made your 'brotherhood' much more apparent to them, and so the fact that you're related gets more attention here. That's what I'd put it down to.

Meiko, it seems like you're getting all up in arms about something that could have been resolved privately. I'd hardly say that BZP cares about your familiar relations any more than any other site.

 

And I have to admit, it's actually a pretty funny member title.

 

(I accidentally asked for my member title, and since then, I've wholeheartedly embraced it)

In fairness to Meiko, he's made his reason for not liking it fairly clear.

 

Now, I do agree with Sumiki that he would've done better to deal with it quietly via PM. Instead, by making a whole topic about the title, he's actually drawn yet more attention to his being Aanchir and Lyichir's brother.

Your title has been removed. We will do our best to make sure you do not get a custom member title in the future for any reason to avoid such a situation from happening again.
