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.

How about I change all your flash icons to floppy dicks and the genre to spam?

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?

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.

I never was an icon mod.

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.

lol icon mods

No seriously they are helping out the site a lot than most other users are and get nothing back besides personal gratification, which they are more than entitled to.

Well you are the type who wants it for the status factor then.

That's so sad really.

It's actually called icon slave. Mod is just a better name, like how toilet cleaners are called janitors.

Nah, I actually started doing them, like a few hundreds, and then I got really busy (girlfriend, work, writing, reading, video games), and my computer with Photoshop died, so I didn't really have time for it anymore.

And yeah, I definitely didn't ask Tom for the "status factor", since this is the first time I ever tell anyone I'm an Icon Mod. :l

I do hope the few icons / genre I made helped though :D

Fair enough.

I don't deny that some of the icon 'mods' don't do much. I imagine Bahamut does more icons (or did before forum modding came along?) than most put together.

But it doesn't really matter because of the lack of gold aura, and lack of being able to do anything else but change icons or genres, whatever.

I don't mind them bigging themselves up when a lot of the userbase just doesn't give a toss about them. There is a limit though and sadly some cross it, which is silly.

I don't know now, I'm jusr waffling on a bit.

Respect for the ones who actually do make icons and don't look for any mod respect from the userbase in return.

Why do some of you make such a big deal out of this?

I think Icon mods are useful but why does it have to be a big 'Icon mods are useless or they are the greatest people evar' debate?

And the funny thing is some of you are probably the same hypocrites who go around saying 'HERP DERP, POST COUNT AND SIGN UP DOES/DOESN'T MATTER'

Pretty much. He and Travis put the rest of us to shame.
