It is the red text in your avatar. In the corner of the eyes it is an indication that you are a moderator.

i have to agree with this, when scrolling through responses, the red stands out just enough, that sometimes i mistake corn for a mod.

 

edit: tbh, your entire avatar kindof screams mod to me, i can't really explain why.

If we are going that route, a longer-term solution is to make actual moderator actions confer mod points. Then we should stay neatly on top of the list.

 

Sounds great. Excuse me while I warm up my ban hammer...

+125 ...if they actually deserved it
+150 ...if it was a nes8bit account

It's perfectly fine to abbreviate my username to 'Servant' rather than copy+pasting it all the time.

Dang. I got it from this gif (after almost using something from this gif). Anyway, how's my avatar now?

Hahaha, there was once upon a time (like, 6 years ago) when I couldn't stop laughing at that gif.

 

I wonder where it came from...

If you seriously want people to know you aren't a moderator, you could use something like this as your avatar:

On a similar topic to this, we occasionally get people who click on the "Report" button, and fill out the "Report this post to a moderator" box with a regular reply to a thread, thinking that they've hit a "Reply" button...

Don't you feel the "Mod!" part of your avatar should be... centered? It makes me uncomfortable left-aligned and all unsure.png


The slowsort algorithm is a perfect illustration of the multiply and surrender paradigm, which is perhaps the single most important paradigm in the development of reluctant algorithms. The basic multiply and surrender strategy consists in replacing the problem at hand by two or more subproblems, each slightly simpler than the original, and continue multiplying subproblems and subsubproblems recursively in this fashion as long as possible. At some point the subproblems will all become so simple that their solution can no longer be postponed, and we will have to surrender. Experience shows that, in most cases, by the time this point is reached the total work will be substantially higher than what could have been wasted by a more direct approach.

Blame a (real) mod smile.png . I changed my avatar to be:
nomod.png
 
After which, I was (quickly) "moderated" (does this mean the moderator should get moderator points?) and given the avatar:
100mod.png

 

I've changed it back... we'll see how long I can keep it ha

Maybe the "Report" button should be changed to say "Report to a moderator"?

I strongly resist this Avatar!. My moderation skills are purely thuggish developed from 20 years in prison. Not at all suitable to this care bear forum!

 

 

 

meh: at failure of quote to copy picture

 

 

Edit: Mind you Cornstalks you would have been better off directing people to PM Tom....He loves PM's :)

As much fun as we had in this thread, I'm not going to change my avatar image until the Top Members -> Moderator section is... not misleading.

 

@Stormynature: ha, forgot about Tom's love of PMs.
