Titles are special names displayed next to your name in chat or under your name on the forum; they may be bought or handed out by the Devs. Titles generally provide no direct benefit beyond enabling fiesta or fireworks during special occasions.

During the month of December, the title "Fruitcake" is randomly granted to a small handful of players in the form of a temporary player rename (not an actual title).[8] Being the quintessential re-gifted gift, the Fruitcake is re-gifted to another shortly after receipt. The tradition began in 2010 and was repeated in 2011 and 2012.
