    I think he did, and I think it was deleted, OZK. But I could be wrong.

    Amazing.

    the next crisis will come in about 3 minutes. Once one crisis is averted, another one comes along. See Gandolf's sig. [face_plain]


    btw, Obi-Zahn, love the sig! :D

    Could someone do me a favor and make my title "City Rep, Milwookiee Council"? I talked to Bobafemme about it, but apparently her computer is experiencing some technical difficulities.

    i don't care if anyone thinks i'm over doing this, but i still think that the admin's & mod's have too many cool stuff that regular posters don't have, & i'm really tired of it. w/ this new title feature, it think it would only be fair to let regular posters have either colors, or the admin only icons. i can't see the problem w/ that.

    We need /something/ to distinguish the mods from everyone else, and the colors and icons are perfectly fine, along with the titles to help clarify their jobs. Giving everyone colors and icons that say 'Admin' will just confuse people.

    that's true, but you don't need everything. titles would work w/out colors, IMHO.

    Colors distinguish us on the Users Online Page. Nothing else can be seen there.

    As far as icons go, for the most part, with a few excepetions, most admin icons are normal icons with "admin" written under them. Its those damned fan force people that get really special ones. ;)

    And titles, we've decided to use as pure info only. Just to let people know what our main focuses are as far as the board goes. There won't be anything fun about them, unless you consder "Communcations and Classic Trilogy Moderator" to be incredibly hilarious and witty, in which case I thank you. :)

    Right, now can we change the CSS so they stand out more?

    I don't understand why you guys couldn't just put the titles in your signatures. Isn't that what they're basically for?

    And another question, the City Reps will be getting titles too I assume? What if they already have custom made icons? Are titles really necassery for them?

    Its not that I'm jealous or anything, these things just aren't making much sense to me. :)

    A signature is for a signature. A title is for a title. We've been using signatures as title-holders because we didn't have the option of titles.

    Besides, no one reads signatures.

    Who says no one reads the signatures?


    And what about the CRs?

    Bennie, I am pretty sure CRs will get Titles.

    And a lot of people dont read sigs unless they are specifically pointed out.

    if you check vert's original post, he said that they are considering doing away with the admin-only icons.

    edit: and, someone can correct me if i'm wrong, but i don't believe they can just "give" all of us colors. my understanding is that only VIPs can have colors, so they'd have to promote us all.

    if they get rid of the icons, then they'll be about as even as they can be. we can't get colors because we can't all be promoted, and, besides, they make life a lot easier when trying to find a mod on the users online list. we can't get titles because it'd be too hard to give every user on this board a title. especially since they'd want them changed. but they can use the titles for a real purpose, so why not let them?

    This is one of the most mature displays of posters I have seen in a long time.

    Ok, now I've skimmed through most of this thread...but I think I get it- there's a title feature now- is it only for mods, or for everyone?

    Either way, I don't see what harm it can do, but I don't like it because it's the kinda thing you'll find at less professional forums such as ezboards and the X boards, etc. I dunno, it just reminds me of forums lie that whenever I see someone with a title.

    But I don't think we need to get all riled up. I mean, we need all the toys we can get to keep the newbies occupied :p ;)

    (Did I just say that outloud?)

    I agree with the icon part... I don't think it's fair that mods get different icons than us, I think that mods should get all the same icons we do... except their's should have "Admin" at the bottom, because Sebulba-X's icon is one of my favorites, but I con't use it because it's a mod-only icon, I think all icon images should be the same among regular users and mods... but mods have a simple "Admin" below their name....

    Actually, with this title feature, there is no need for Mod/Admin only icons.
    Everyone can have the same ones.
    Their title will do the rest.

    My sentiments exactly, GIMER. I'm working on having a non-Admin version of my icon made. As soon as it's done, I won't be using this icon any more.

    You know Hama's icon?

    It WAS a regular Icon and you deleted it. But the admin one STAYED.

    That's my favorite Icon!
