Hey all you guys helping out to change icons. Now I know some of you guys are so called "icon mods", but before you say you are, look at your aura. Its not gold for most of you? Exactly. Oh and you don't have the control to actually have any mod powers reguarding icons besides changing 3 and going egotastic?

Meh. More desperate for an Admin to notice some of 'em.

I'd got to agree though that forum, art, audio, and even review mods are higher up in the ranks of mods but icon mods are still up there.

All standing orders to the "front facing" mod teams are actually drafted and ratified by the icon mod team. They have the "mod" title to assure some form of team cohesion, and take the low profile duties of icon management to avoid the stresses and distracting nuances of actually implementing their rules. The authority-complex attitude of NG makes this scenario completely viable and efficient.

In fact, the system is so robust I can confidently post this without worrying that anyone will believe it.

It's better that icon, wiki, and genre mods don't have a gold aura anyways to avoid being pestered by users who think they moderate some other part of the site.

I don't know what you're talking about. The closest material to gold in your picture is silver.

That's a perk of being an icon and genre.

We don't have golden auras because that would be pointless, anyone can ask to be an icon mod and since there's no differentiation between mods right now we'd end up getting PMs meant for ''real'' moderators (and no one would ever have a reason to PM an icon mod anyway). Plus everyone and their dog would become an icon mod then just to get the aura and not bother making any actual icons.
What I'd like to know is why are you trying to make us feel bad? Asking to become an icon mod has nothing to do with egotism, most are either really bored at the time or genuinely want to help the site. It's not like making icons for ancient, half-assed flashes no one is ever going to watch again is something to brag about anyway.

Can you point out an Icon mod who has said this? Or is this a baseless claim?

To be honest, I do recall the early days of icon modding where you actually had a gold aura with it. I remember a couple of icon mods showing it off in a topic until the admins took out the gold aura feature.

Also, if I remember correctly, EyeLovePoozy said that they had to change that because so many icon mods were acting out of conduct with it though Tom Fulp himself said it was done to prevent confusion.

Hell, I have seen Tom Fulp try to recruit icon mods in a topic and one user even said he would pass the offer because it didn't include the gold aura.

It's not totally baseless but as of late I have not noticed this kind of behavior among the icon mods.

What does this prove? They're still mods, just as forum, audio, art, and review mods are.

It'd be fallacious to think that icon mods need the gold aura to officially be moderators. No, not true at all.

Oh and you don't have the control to actually have any mod powers reguarding icons besides changing 3 and going egotastic?

I guess I should just leave this pic here, which indicates some of the powers that icon mods have when they visit a given person's userpage.

Given that they can delete uploaded icons on a given userpage and ban users from uploading anymore on to these pages, I'd say that icon mods aren't exactly useless or powerless.

They can be considered userpage mods when you think about it.

What the fuck is this? I'm an icon mod but have my gold aura. Seriously, though, I wasn't all that bothered about my aura for icon modding. At least I was able to build upon helping the site where beforehand I was genre modding submissions. I take my breaks but when I'm in the right motivation, it's a blast.

Don't lie, I saw you posting in the mod forum, I know it must suck to have your title revoked but it's your own fault really.

Yeah, I told him not to go screwy with things, but oh no. He said it would be funny. Which it was, for a while. Shortest icon-mod rein ever.
