why is everyone so desperate for a subtitle? Member is so awesome! And if you get a subtitle you dont like youre stuck!May 20, 2011 3:14 am at 3:14 am #771669
you can complain to the mods and they’ll change it usuallyMay 20, 2011 10:09 am at 10:09 am #771670
Cucumber-:) I got member too. What a coincidence. And I love it too. Kinda gives me that cozy warm feeling inside. Maybe all poor posters with silly subtitles will one day earn their membership as well.
Coffee- take heart, you too will be a member one day.May 20, 2011 1:27 pm at 1:27 pm #771671cholent guyParticipant
Thanks Mod, I LOVE itMay 20, 2011 3:24 pm at 3:24 pm #771672
I earned that title waaaaaaaaay before I got this one 😉May 22, 2011 3:26 am at 3:26 am #771673
its like doctors in england- before they get their doctorate they’re just a mister like everyone else. Then they get their degree and become a docotor. Then they go on to become a specalist and hey they’re a mister again. So too here in the CR you start out a member then you can get a subtitle but ultimately the best thing is to become a member again!May 22, 2011 3:38 am at 3:38 am #771674
riiiiiiiight (looking at cucumber strangely)May 22, 2011 7:37 am at 7:37 am #771675
coffee-you were demoted? My condolences. Perhaps, one day you will merit reclaiming memberhood. 🙂
cuc-we are proud members!!!May 22, 2011 2:33 pm at 2:33 pm #771676
BSD, Cucumber–would you be unhappy if the moderator changed your subtitle to “Proud Member” or, to really stress your specialness, “Mr. Member”? Would that be a pro(ud)motion or a demotion?May 22, 2011 10:56 pm at 10:56 pm #771677
BSD you got it!! we are the proud CR members. ursula momish

lolMay 23, 2011 6:14 pm at 6:14 pm #771684adorableParticipant
so now member is a compliment? well i am not changing mine so fast I love it!!!!!!!!!! Thank you mods againMay 24, 2011 12:54 am at 12:54 am #771686
I think BSD really wanted a subtitle he was just too embarrassed to ask for one outrightMay 24, 2011 12:57 am at 12:57 am #771687
So BSD looks like you’ve been demoted!! you have my sympathies. Maybe if you beg them the mods will promote you up to member again. Wanna try?May 24, 2011 10:35 pm at 10:35 pm #771688
he got one anyway 😉 poor guyMay 24, 2011 10:44 pm at 10:44 pm #771689
I think cucumber wants a subtitle like “in a pickle” 😉May 24, 2011 11:05 pm at 11:05 pm #771690
that sounds like a nice one for you actally. 😉May 25, 2011 12:47 am at 12:47 am #771691
Or maybe “I know you are but what am I” 😉May 25, 2011 2:03 am at 2:03 am #771692yolkMember
can i also pretty please have a subtitle????May 25, 2011 2:32 am at 2:32 am #771693
BSD: they got you, too?! 🙁May 25, 2011 4:30 am at 4:30 am #771694
Well cucumber, that leaves us to man the fort: The Few. The Proud. The Members.
Be careful, or they’ll change your name to Cucmember.May 25, 2011 8:13 am at 8:13 am #771695
cuc and Ursula- To the contrary, I think it’s a step up the ladder of membership rank and file. Ya know what- if you like, and the mods allow it, I can transfer my platinum membership and proud membership over to you guys. Dismember I bequeath to Joseph. So long as I remain chutsh ah member.
Coffee- something tells me you didn’t ask for your specific subtitle either:)May 25, 2011 11:48 am at 11:48 am #771696
BSD: Thanks for the generous offer, but i refuse re-cycled membership. I will accept only a new and improved, clean and fresh subtitle!May 25, 2011 4:08 pm at 4:08 pm #771697
That’s correct, but I wanted one and I like it nonetheless 😛May 25, 2011 4:09 pm at 4:09 pm #771698
cucumber subtitle is CORNyMay 25, 2011 5:58 pm at 5:58 pm #771699
ursula- how about Mama Bear?May 25, 2011 7:08 pm at 7:08 pm #771700
That would be my definitive subtitle, true.
or, to be consistent, Mama Bearish.May 26, 2011 1:56 am at 1:56 am #771701
sorry to be a spoilsport but i dont even know what my subtitle means. Malafa Phone? Anyone care to explain? And on second thought, coffee addict, “in a pickle” doesnt sound so bad after all. 😉May 26, 2011 2:04 am at 2:04 am #771702mybatMember
How about ” Popping in once in a while” ??May 26, 2011 3:27 am at 3:27 am #771703
Someone else has probably posted this already, but it’s not up yet, so: Hebrew for Cucumber is “melafafone”. Would you prefer “Batampte”? (In good taste, or tasting good) “Posting with relish” or “Relish the posts” or something along that line. Truly, the mind reels with the possibilities.
[Meanwhile, over at my own screenname…think i’ll head over to the “feeling ignored” thread. :)]May 26, 2011 3:42 am at 3:42 am #771704
malafafon is cucumber in hebrew the mods are making a play on wordsMay 26, 2011 4:47 am at 4:47 am #771705
Fifty years later, it dawns on me: the mods’ play on words would be connecting Cucumber, the Oorah phone service, with the Hebrew word for cucumber, which sounds like phone. Do you truly appreciate the multi-lingual genius of those who toil so selflessly behind the YWN screens, hm?May 26, 2011 10:55 am at 10:55 am #771706
Ursula”[Meanwhile, over at my own screenname…think i’ll head over to the “feeling ignored” thread. :)]”
We are rallying behind you until you get your screen name!May 26, 2011 12:54 pm at 12:54 pm #771707
good ha’arah ursulaMay 26, 2011 6:38 pm at 6:38 pm #771708
Thank you for your support, BSD and the mention, coffee addict. I had considered going over to the other subtitle threads, in hopes that increasing my screen presence would increase my chances, but NO–(stiffening my quivering upper lip) I will not beg. I may not have a subtitle, but I do have my dignity!May 27, 2011 2:23 am at 2:23 am #771709
thank you ursula and coffe addict i appreciate the explanation. But a joke is not exactly as funny once it is explained…. see Ursula you are still better off as a member- you’re part of the awesome member club and you dont have any incomprehensible subtitles. And BTW does Ursula mean something?May 27, 2011 3:40 am at 3:40 am #771710
Welcome to the dark sideMay 27, 2011 4:25 am at 4:25 am #771711
Every name means something. Ursula is the feminine form of the Latin word for “bear” (Ursa Major, Ursa Minor, the Bear constellations). There is currently in the plaza of the Seagram Building a sculpture of a giant teddy bear leaning against a lamp, built by Swiss artist Urs Fischer, whose first name means bear. I have met plenty of Dov Bers and Berishes, and a few women named Doba, but no women named Bera.
It is not my given name but i like it (although i like my real name better).
Cucumber: If you rejoin the member ranks, then your subtitle will perforce be “remembered”. As BSD’s is, a conundrum. (Since a proud member should not have any other subtitle, does his subtitle mean he is not proud to be a member?)
Oh, goodness! Look! My very own subtitle! Gee, thanks, guys! Thanks, mystery moderator! I think I’ll go and have myself a happy little cry now.
Have a great Shabbos, everyone!May 27, 2011 5:33 am at 5:33 am #771712
(Sneaking back quietly onto the thread) Oh, Moderator? Don’t think me ungrateful, chas v’shalom, but after that explanation, would you consider changing my subtitle to “MemBear”?
