We have been discussing titles for the members of the board. We have yet to come up with anything good for the Junior and Senior Members. We're talking about 0-30 posts and 30 and above, non-SF, general membership.

We're looking for serious ideas and since you will be the users, we think its a good idea for you to input. So let's hear what you think. Keep in mind the environment.

Okay....I'll throw my .02 cents out.

0-30 posts...In The PS Pipeline ( or something to that effect)
30 and above....Non SF- Accepted Member

No, it can't be related to SF training. Where does that leave those that are actually in the program? You can't say you're "In The Pipeline" just because you have a certain number of posts on the internet.

What about those of us who have credentials who don't have a lot of posts?

I propose a two tiered system:

1. A title system based on matching titles with qualifications, for those with qualifications - titles changed by site admins following verifications.

2. A second 'system assigned' title structure based on the number of posts. What those title names are I leave to the admins/moderators of the site.

I was thinking along these lines. Perhaps for all non-military members it can stay as follows:

0-30 posts Junior (or New) Member

30-100 posts Member



100+ posts Senior Member

(skipped a few levels). Opens up the medic references as well.

I say leave it alone "as is". The number of posts only gets you a "member" status or whatever. For non-SF (not verified Quiet Professionals) posters, any other custom titles can be given as they are earned from the mods or admin. Ex. RL's little mob title. Everyone is the same title unless the ADMIN or Mod's decide to change that particular users title.

I do like to see custom ones for the frequent /well respected contributors (ex. Doc T). Otherwise, who really cares what their title says if it is based on post count alone. Just my .02 Senior NDD

I like this one except that UN Diplo should be for the 75 + group. Those are talkingest SOB's I've ever heard.

Or you could use the names of News People. I'm kind of partial to that interrupting, loud mouth Bastage Chris Matthews. Anyone ever notice the talk show hosts do most of the talking?

Okay...I through out my .02 cents with my 1st post on this thread and I had a feeling that it was going to get shot down, but I had to test the "waters".

I was toying with the idea, and I'm glad you brought it up NDD, about you guys (The Admins and other QP's) issuing us titles/names. You know most of us anyways from other boards/houses.

You are after all a "Brotherhood" and this is YOUR house and we are guests in this house. What better why to be "initiated" into your house, than by having our very own "Delta Tau Ki" name.

When I first came here and saw R.L.'s "title", I was LMAO. I thought 'How Fitting' and that I'd better watch my P's and Q's about bashing lawyers or I just might wake up with a horse's head in my bed.

Now if ya'll excuse me, I've got to go and make sure all my windows are closed and spoons are tucked away.

Team Sergeant and Admins,

Team Sergeant = You are "the man" its your site so your title should be whatever the hell you want your title to be.

Admins = Damn close to whatever you want your title to be seeing how you are damn close to being "the man".

SF personal past and present = Quiet Professional

All else = whatever you call the indigious personal in your target countries or environments. Because we like them are here to learn from you. Granted I would rather my title not be "guerilla fighter" or "indigious personal" but if its something like that well then so be it.

I think it would keep with the environment or theme of the site.

Jefe, I think the whole connotation of names of personnel (of all types and both genders) who support SF is the key, and while my UW notes are a bit old, I believe that is the rough order of dedication to the cause.

Numbers are flexible, depending on your desire and intent.

:cool: great idea TR and smokin joe. thanks Team Sergeant. I like that these are based on levels of commitment or dedication. To me this acheives the same thing as those rank titles, in a way very meaningful to this environment. I dont really know what an auxillary is though, so I have to go look it up.

perhaps there should be a seperate track for marauders. what do you call a marauder that survives 1000 posts?

ok, i'll take an uneducated stab.

Asset; one who is principally defined by interest and potential usefulness. The goals of assets are diverse, and no formal alliance is made.

Auxillary; The function of a body of auxillaries is to handle large influxes, and to screen and test members.

Guerilla; these are fighters who are loyal to their fellows. this is a formal alliance. they develop specific skills.

Guerilla Chief; has a band of loyal guerillas who recognize and respect their decisions and experience. GC can act as mentor and advisor.

Area Commander; AC is responsible for actions which further and sustain the goal.

Some people are PMing asking can we change their title to "So and so". The titles are set, at least for the time being.

Stop and think about it, do you really want us concentrating on you and your personal title? Us? Really?

I'll give you the answer - No, you don't.

If an admin decides to give a special title, that's his decision. If not, drive on.

I made up those definitions. I did use a book (not FM) to get ideas for auxillary. I'm looking forward to hearing all the ideas, and the true meanings.

This mornings posts reminded me that I forgot to try and define one of the titles.

Ass-est; one whose primary function is to overcontemplate themselves. these are often commanders of their own AO known as "the hole". potential of usefulness is extremely limited. may also be defined as one whose ass is excessively padded.

As I am sneaking in here during "lunch" I would offer my idea of what my "'title" of assets could mean; someone that could be of help but would not truly be needed to perform or complete your mission.

On the right track?

Smokin Joe
02-10-2004, 14:59
I was just wondering if the Team Sergeant wanted a new thread so we could all take our feable stabbes at the title defintions.

To be on the safe side I will wait for him, I don't want to speak for him or out of turn.

Here are my attempts and the title definitions:

Asset = An individual who can contribute to the cause; a probate member. i.e. the Guerilla equivalent of an E-1 basic training private.

Auxiliary = A person, group, or device; specifically: a member of a foreign force serving a nation at war. i.e. A local individual such as a farmer or peasant who has attended training to be a Guerilla but does not regularly engage in combat, but can pick up a rifle and fight in a pinch. A member of a reserve force.

Guerilla = A person who engages in irregular warfare especially as a member of an independent unit carrying out harassment and sabotage.

Guerilla Chief = The head of a Guerilla force; i.e. a leader of the Guerillas, for the Guerillas.

Area Commander = The highest ranking individual in the area or region. i.e. A state Governor

Am I close?

You guys need to look around this board, and learn to Google or do internet research through another means.

HTH.

TR


asset — Any resource — person, group, relationship, instrument, installation, or supply — at the disposition of an intelligence organization for use in an operational or support role. Often used with a qualifying term such as agent asset or propaganda asset.

Auxiliary --- The Auxiliary provides logistical support to the resistance movement . Auxiliary units may contain communications ,material support, transportation, and other units whose mission is to provide logistics support to the resistance. The Auxiliary may at times conduct limited combat operations in order to support actions undertaken by the guerrilla force.

guerrilla — A combat participant in guerrilla warfare. See also unconventional warfare.

guerrilla force — A group of irregular, predominantly indigenous personnel organized along military lines to conduct military and paramilitary operations in enemy-held, hostile, or denied territory. (JP 3-05)

insurgent — Member of a political party who rebels against established leadership. See also antiterrorism; counterinsurgency; insurgency. (JP 3-07.2)

An area commander will have an area in the GWOA with several units of G's under G Chiefs working for him.

Jimbo, you think the names/titles we use are part of GNN’s heritage or training?

Do you think anyone at GNN has actually met any of the people we use as titles?

This is our heritage and it’s a big part of our training.

Hey, I just noticed that I’ve been promoted to “Auxiliary”.
One of the units I was in required that you knock out pushups in front of the company formation while others poured garbage from the mess hall trash cans on you; right after they pinned the stripes on. Hope you guys don’t have similar traditions!:D

Very interesting definitions for the titles...at the rate I am going, I could be hurting for promotion:eek: ;)

I say leave it alone "as is". The number of posts only gets you a "member" status or whatever. For non-SF (not verified Quiet Professionals) posters, any other custom titles can be given as they are earned from the mods or admin. Ex. RL's little mob title. Everyone is the same title unless the ADMIN or Mod's decide to change that particular users title.

I do like to see custom ones for the frequent /well respected contributors (ex. Doc T). Otherwise, who really cares what their title says if it is based on post count alone. Just my .02 Senior NDD

I agree with Sacamuelas--leave alone. I try to read much much more than I post because I am an old f**t and my knowledge is way out of date.

You are probably not aware of the source for the titles. Each has to do with a role played by an individual in Unconventional Warfare. All are war fighters in one sense or another.

I know where the names come from. I just kind of like that word.

Okay, let me be a little more direct in keeping with your response. Pardon me for assuming that you were unaware of the origin of the subsets of titles, I foolishly thought that because your suggestion had no bearing on the other titles that you might not have considered suggesting a title that had a similar context.

Is that the verbal equivalant of throwing off pursuit or just a real nice way of saying this is an old topic and it's closed?

Actually when you made your suggestion I reviewed your profile which led me to believe that you might not have had the background you evidently do to realize the significance of the titles. I even toyed with the idea of defining each and providing an example of what roles they acutally played. As I was not really sure about the depth of your understanding and as I did not want to sound condesending or have you think I was treating you like an idiot, I decided just to make a simple statement so as not to offend you. It was just a feeble old soldier's attempt to provide you with some additional background , unbeknownst to me that you did not need, with which you could make another suggestion. But as you point out, this is an old topic and yes, it is closed.

Same here. I've never served with Col M; but, from what little I've gotten to know him, I'd take his word on anything he said as Gospel.

Careful where you tread, CRad. Col M is the real deal.

I enjoy the information available to me here in your house.

Only concern is that, people who walk around town wearing bicycle helmets may step off the short bus and start a mass-posting campaign to boost themsleves into a newer/cooler title, at least in their minds anyways, forcing those of us who enjoy lurking and learning to have to sift through their BS.

Wait, actually that may not be so bad afterall, as they'd surely be "round" filed.

My .02 .....

Those individuals who are in the Pipeline, rate titles different than non-Pipeline members. Since most of you are probably in contact with them, it would make sense that you personally give them their titles.

As for those of us just here as guests...will give that more thought and update after I've weighed all the options and can come up with an educated opinion based on the current situation.

OUT.

Your concerns are unwarranted. We do not allow mass postings.

Professionalsoldiers.com is owned and operated by Special Forces soldiers. Even the webmaster is a Special Forces soldier.

Before you decide to yell the "sky is falling", you might want to first watch, listen and learn; ie; spend a few weeks on here first.

Who we know in the "pipeline" or are in contact with is our business. If you are not a Special Forces soldier then forget about it.

I VERY highly recommend that you refrain from insinuating that you know how to run this site better, before you become associated with the: people who walk around town wearing bicycle helmets


(edited to add)

Be careful what you ask for, you can very quickly become the Target!!!

For that matter, the only "sift through their BS" that I've had to endure today is YOURS!!!

Have a VERY SF DAY!!!
