Well, I DO like the Knight name over the Lord name :)

But if that was the reason, I wouldn't have done it. Just a little different rank under your name ain't worth money in my eyes. It's just a funny extra, and not what the donation is actually about.

It may be pleasant to be named 'knight', though I'm not sure about the 'dame'.....

I am kind of with Elvi on that one...:P Kind of liked Lady over Dame :P

Then again I didn't donate for the shiny new title either, doubt that really anyone did...People realized that this is a community that they enjoy and did not want to see lost, they realized that Veks had shouldered the burden for a very long time and it was time to step up and help out :)

Hey, if 'Dame' is good enough for the likes of Judi Dench and Agatha Christie, I'm happy with it!

Or if you think about it in the film noir usage, it has kind of a slinky, dangerous vibe... I like that one, too.

I would have thought that the British of all members would be familiar with the title. : )

I'm very 'familier' with the title, doesn't mean to say that I like it....*smiles*

Then again, I didn't particularly enjoy being called a 'lady' either....*laughs*

Yeah, it's not for the gold, it's for Elliquiy. Of all places, I think E is the place I should support - the community and the games have both been great.

So, Elvi, what would you prefer? Woman? Hussy? Babe? *grin*

To be quite honest, I don't really care at all...*smiles*

Well, that was what 5 seconds on the thesarus on dictionary.com gave me. Not that I'd think of addressing you as 'the old bag' as it suggests  ;D
