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.

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

yep, can't see myself mistaking you for a mod anymore=-)

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

Blame a (real) mod smile.png . I changed my avatar to be:
[attachment=13527:nomod.png]
 
After which, I was (quickly) "moderated" (does this mean the moderator should get moderator points?) and given the avatar:
[attachment=13528:100mod.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.

IModerators are an interface for Moderators .. wait a second..

I think we can all agree that clearing up confusion is the most important thing. I also considered "Moderators" as his group name except in a different color then red, because everyone knows that moderators have red tags. "!Moderator" as a group name isn't going to work.

Therefore I am changing it to "Moderator*" and have added a special note at the bottom of every page denoting that the asterisk means not a moderator.

But then what difference is there between not a moderator and normal users? Clearly every other member should be part of this group too, for consistency. tongue.png moderators everywhere!

Only the top 10 moderator-status members are part of the Moderator* group. They're the Black-Ops division of the Moderator group proper. The rest of us are just regular.

 

Anyway, congratulations Cornstalks on the promotion!

Moderator* is not camouflage for stealth moderators.. I mean.. come on.. that would be silly. *cough*

Also Cornstalks.. on an unrelated note we're going to be redirecting support@gamedev.net to your personal email address. It's like sipping from a firehose! Thanks man, you're the best at not being a moderator. *wink*

Thanks! I feel particularly honored that a special footer was placed on the entire website just for me!

I'd be more than happy to have you redirect that to my email address! I used my junk email address to register for this site (like I do with 99% of sites), and hence I never check it. So yes, please!

I was convinced you used your newfound Seal Team Six powers to edit my post. Hmmmmm....
