Forummers of Total War Heaven

Many articles have been submitted 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 chose your own title.

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

M2TW
Tier 1: Ministerialis
Tier 2: Banneret


ETW
Tier 1: Rake
Tier 2: Gentleman

Shogun 2 (tentative- may change)
Tier 1: Sensei (teacher)
Tier 2: Roshi (exalted teacher, sage)
This scheme applies for all future articles submitted and is also backdated to include articles submitted in the past that are hosted on our site.

The articles eligible are:
-Strategy or gameplay articles for any Total War game. This forum is for Shogun 2, so post those here, and other games in the appropriate forums.
-Modification tutorials for any Total War game.
-History articles for any Total War game.
We will also count hosting & presenting the forum awards. For practical reasons, we will not be backdating this beyond the 7th 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 specific to a single game, then you will get the relevant title. If you have submitted for multiple games, you get to chose which relevant game-related title you wish.

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.

Good to see a start on the Shogun strategy/history coverage. Good luck getting the site up. I hope it does well.
also backdated to include articles submitted in the past that are hosted on our two front pages
If you submit ten articles, you get to chose your own title.
Can I call this in? Fallen Angel is my choice.

Hey Adder. Some of those Rome opening guides you wrote were the inspiration for me to do mine for Medieval 2.

Planning on getting a copy of Shogun 2?

Hey Aftermath. I saw this a while back and meant to respond, but somehow I forgot. Sorry! Not around THW enough to remember.

That's nice of you to say. I haven't actually played a TW game since RTW! I played MTW2 for a little bit, but then my gaming computer crapped out and I haven't done much gaming since then. Every once in a while I want to reinstall it but I don't know where the CD is.

I'd have loved to get ETW, but I don't think my computer will be able to handle it (it's pretty old and I'm just waiting for something expensive in it to break so that I finally have an excuse to buy/build a new one). Then, I'd like to catch up on all the computer gaming I've missed out on. So, in a sense I am excited about Shogun 2, but I'm not sure when I'll be getting a computer for it.

My Japanese history knowledge focuses around the Tokugawa shogunate which is after this. Now I need to expand back into the past a bit more.

The period is fascinating. I'd like to think I know a lot about it now, but I only started researching it because of my anticipation for Shogun 2

I've got some sources and interesting articles I can show you if you like? What in particular are you most interested in about the era?

It occurs to me that I now have four articles on the site, sort of. Swordmaking and Toyotomi Hideyoshi, here, and an Ottoman strategy guide and the X Semi-Annual Awards for ETWH. If all four of those count, I'd like the Sensei title.

I'm not sure if the Awards count as an article, although it might count as one, dunno.

I am 1 away from a title. As long as my Ninja one is considered alright.

I'm pretty sure Pitt told me, when I agreed to do the awards, that they would count towards a custom title. There's also this from the OP:
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).
I'm just not sure when that was written. I think he mostly copy-pasted from another Heaven and just added the Shogun info. Hopefully, it doesn't mean just the most recent awards presentations since only Terikel and Edorix wrote any.

Sorry, I thought I read the whole OP

So you should get the title.

Yeah, it probably is c/p from another TWH by the looks of it.

The honored title of 'Sensei' has been bestowed upon the noble BastWorshipper for his vaunted works to date.

All hail Sensei BastWorshipper, honored speaker of knowledge and honor!

I have about 10 articles done now. Could I have a custom Title please?

I'm thinking "Liamidas Shogunate", or is that a bit too vain?
