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.
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.
