*sigh* I was hoping this would be explaining the awesome new custom-titles tradition.
I'm wondering about the custom-titles, too. Some users have their own, some don't. Is that something from the older pweb, or can you still create your own title?

Were you all part of the Star Trek generation? I'm young, so I never actually saw the series. And I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. I thought the movie was good, but I wish I knew the original continuation instead of the movie's "alternate reality" timeline.
