Its simple math

Get redesign and lose icon mod powers > keep old design and keep icon mod powers

Im going to miss being an icon mod but at least I could say I helped make this happen.

If you only wanted to be made an icon mod just so you could become a higher level mod, that wasn't a good decision. We're not guaranteed any kind of reward like higher modship, but those lucky enough may get it.

We may get something like a thanks in the wiki or something, but other than that don't expect much because there's not much they can give.

Yeah, Tom has stated he would like to make a wiki giving credit to those who helped out with making icons. I can't see why not and I'll be happy to see a wiki saying who helped out with the new icon format. However, even if that doesn't work out, I've had a really good time watching loads of flashes I never even watched before.

Uh thats kind of my fault. I told him how Auz was icon modded then bbs modded a little later and I think I gave him the wrong idea. Sectus most of us are only going to get a tiny taste of what being a mod was like when some like Auz, Bahamut, rev, EJR, and some others. They are the ones who are going to be climbing the ranks. We are going to be icon mods and then users in the future. But EJR is right becoming an icon mod just to become a better mod isn't going to work. Were 14 so we wont get a better mod stats for a few more years. Just enjoy your time as an icon mod.

Sigh. Well I guess I'll try and get the best out of it and wait to see the ultimate result. Though I'm sure that after a few years we ALL will be rewarded for our dedication to the NG team.

Idk man. I think Auz was already planned to be made a forum mod before he asked to be icon modded. I can't really speak for him, but I don't think it was because he was already an icon mod.

This. It was just a coincidence that he became a forum moderator after a few days he got icon modded, too. Becoming a forum, review, audio and art moderator is a decision that make the administrators and the moderation team.

As I've already said, most of us will get demodded and I accepted this job even if I was aware that I may lost it after the duty is done. But I'm pretty sure most of us won't care losing our modships since our usernames will appear in a wikipage and the redesign will be here due to us.

As for me, I won't start going to uni until next year, so I have a lot of free time. I plan to study medicine and I already know it consumes most of the time, but I will still have enough time to spend here since I don't have to stay in uni even if the classes have ended. I can go back at home.

Speaking about icons, rev and I are just about to finish making the icons from 123bee. I just managed to do around 80 while he did almost the whole thing. There were 404 icons in total. Another victory for the icons mods.

And bad news guys, Afro_Stud is changing all of the icons we've made for him. We should have PM'd him before. All our efforts for nothing, but meh. I made more than 50 icons in less than 15 minutes.

You guys are actually lucky to be given such responsibilities at a very young age. I don't think I would have fitted the role at the age of 14 considering how immature I was back then, especially when I was getting trolled by the Star Syndicate.

Yet I'm making icons for them right now.

Obviously I know nothing from over there but I asked Auz if he was interesting in being an icon mod. I thought he would have applied right away so I asked him and wondered why he didn't consider the role. I'm still happy I got him to apply for icon modship and help out with making icons.

Yeah im going to be happy he gives credit to us for all the work we have done. Im going to miss being an icon mod I just thought we were all going to stay as mods since there are so many new mods coming with the redesign I thought we might just all get a different modship and not all stay as icon mods.

Im very grateful. you don't see a 14 year old mods a lot unless its icons. The only under age mod I know of is the 12 year old forum mod and I think he only got the modship for not telling his real age. But being an icon mod is still great enough for me.

Also what happens if you claim a user on the icon mod site and another icon mod still does the icons is there some kind of punishment.

No, it's not even that big of a deal.

In other news, these "OMG OUR FUTURE AS MODS IS JEOPARDIZED" conversations are happening quite often. Can we just chill out and see what happens? I'll have to get out the stick if I hear one more person whine about getting demodded.

Also school starts for me tomorrow. Trolled by the school system.

Thank you good sir, from my count I made 300 exactly so you must have made 102 and there are only 402 total. It really didn't take as long as I thought; just a weekend. :)

Yes, I think it was just a coincidence. I got forum modded only a week later, so the admins must've already had me in their scope. I don't think me applying for icon mod really had such a major influence on their decision.

To be honest though, I do not know that much about it. I can only guess what went through the minds of the admins when they invited me.

One other thing I forgot to mention was regarding Afro_Stud's icons. To be honest, I had a feeling he was going to change the icons himself at some point. Although I stopped talking to him months ago, I knew he wanted the new icons to reflect the old ones he had which is why he's replacing all 349 icons he was given. One flash author was bound to be unhappy with their icons.

In other news, I've made 2,000 icons!

38.5 per day, if my mental math is right. That's really good. Compared to my 8.9 per day. I'm lazy, I guess. Reverend got modded after me, and he already has around 10 times what I've made, I think.

Yeah. For me it's harder because I have to put out a larger amount during the weekends to make up for the 2 weeks I can't produce.

Mind-numbing, but I had the weekend free and thought might as well and TPM was a major relief as well. I still think the SS would be worse than 123XXXX; at least they are a legitimate company and the SS you never know what you'll get from them. Regardless, knock them out Bahamut!

As of yesterday, I have made about 1,500, but that's really irrelevant. Everybody's pace is going to be different so the only things that really matter is the goals you set yourselves. If you set a goal for yourself of 20 icons per day then go for it and try to reach it. ;)

ALL flashes found in Clock Day pages 2005 - 2009 are all done! I made the final push tonight to update everything in the remaining pages in 2009 and I'm really happy to know that I've got those pages out of the way. Now to get through the Star Syndicate.

That's a fine pace. It doesn't matter if you can't do over a hundred in a single day. Regardless of pace (unless you're barely making any icons, lol), you're still doing a great deal for the site. :)

From what I've seen from 123bee, there is absolutely nothing appealing from the flashes. Just generic as fuck. At least the SS have decent submissions such as this one:

I just love when a crew makes an awesome flash. Telling to us that besides all of that spam flash they do, there's talent after all.
I remember watching this flash movie by the SS about the ex-moderator Ozcar. I just found it funny just like Ozcar:

I finally did it. Even if I'm quite slow, I still managed to get my 1000th icon in less than 2 months.
And I just wanted to make my 1000th icon for a flash that I just love so much:

I want to give you a congrats for reaching the 1k milestone. For someone who's probably more enthusiastic about making icons than I am, this is definitely cool. :)
