I personally think that remembering just the last title (when introed) would just cause more confusion than anything. Hiding titles would make remembering people pretty much pointless since you can see everyone who's online anyway - maybe we should remove unknown people from the who list again? Newbies still get "nlist" to view fellow newbies and helpers.widdershins wrote: ↑15 Jul 2021 16:06Probably also worth rereading the last thread about this. Some good points made about the nonsensical omniscience of the who list regarding titles. Otherwise, seems like much the same points have been made and remade
I think my favorite incarnation of title-hiding is one where <who> only remembers the last introduced title, everyone gets to choose the their introduced titles from the ones available to them, but their associations also have a "tell" of some sort in their description when examined. The "scent of herbs" or whatever it is for gardeners, obvious magey-ness, air of military discipline, etc.
I guess kind of a middle ground would be removing the unmet from the who list and disabling the "full" option from the list, then it would only show the names. I can already imagine the befuddlement though.
I think that knowing people's titles is great, tracking people's progress and affiliations is one of my favorite things. It's also very useful for when you need to ask someone stuff about certain guild or when you seek someone from the council etc.
If you don't want to show your affiliations just join guilds that don't show them. Go Mercenary and Thief or something and make people wonder if you're FK, AA, Merc, Trickster etc.
