User title update

Updated user titles to reflect the rank system of the Roman Legions. Yes, in fact I did watch "Gladiator" recently, again.

Of course you're welcome to select your own work/family safe user title anytime you wish. If you don't then the default title will apply.

The structure is:
Tirone 0 Milites Gregarius 100 Discen 200 Immune 300 Imaginifer 400 Cornicen 500 Tesserarius 600 Optio 800 Signifer 1000 Aquilifer 1100 Centurion 1300 Hastatus Posterior 1400 Hastatus Prior 1500 Princeps Posterior 1600 Princeps Prior 1800 Pilus Posterior 2000 (Quintus) Pilus Prior 2200 Primus Pilus 3000 Tribuni Angusticlavii 3500 Praefectus Castrorum 4000 Tribunus Laticlavius 4500 Legatus Legionis 7500

If you find in any error in spelling or rank order please let me know. My memory occasionally fails me in my silver years.

Not sure I like being a posterior... Hmmmm. I was hoping to at least be a Primus.

Isn't that society fascinating? When I was searching for a brand name, I looked into ancient civilizations like Ming, Ancient or Fuedal China, and then Rome. The Roman as you rightfully say were the most powerful and quite revolutionary in their time. I based the design on their military armour, which has a remarkable resemblance to our riding gear today.

Nicely Done Caesar?

Very cool. Explains why I still have mine which few people probably get.

Ancient Roman culture is awesome. I was going to be a history major at one point in my life. Greek and Roman Mythology...all of it fascinates me.

Galdiator...great freakin movie. Need to watch it again.

Odd crap... what would one do in life with a degree in the history of Roman Theology? I shudder to think....

But good movie non-the-less!

I LOVE Tig Bitties!

Thanks, just curious. That was a good movie! You don't have to tell me about memory problems in the "silver years". My silver is pretty tarnished!
