I feel really ignorant right now, so could someone enlighten me?

What are member icons? Or were they removed and that's why I have no idea what they are?

You see that thing below Blazer's rank/class/role/whatever (Creator) and above his post count? That's a member icon.

 

They used to be fixed to certain icons depending on your post count or some other factor that placed you in a different group (or some particularly special reason like winning some forum game) but at the moment he's trying to make it less restrictive so people can use the icons they want to use.


I believe in judgment of humans through their judgment of fiction, for nothing else tells better of their disposition freed from apprehension.

That's pretty much it. You had to be manually moved to another set of member icons and they only changed when you reached X number of posts. That was kind of a lame system in that you could easily be stuck with the icon of a character you really didn't like and it took work to get your icon changed (mostly for the mod, but it's inconvenient for the member, too). Not to mention you had to post a lot to get certain icons and so some icons (especially later ones or ones in different sets; we had at least 4 different sets of icons, I think) weren't even used, IIRC >_>

 

also it made doing administration stuff difficult because each member icon literally had a different group. so changing the settings for members meant changing the settings to every single variation of the group of which the only real difference was the member icon. And I had to codename the groups so I knew they were different and UGHHH hopefully you get why it just wasn't a good system >_<

I remember people wanting a member icon from a previous post bracket, so a mod would change it for them, but then they'd instantly lose it again in favor of the next member icon of the next bracket if they ever posted again leading to more frustrations for the mods. Good times.

My, this so...if you're wondering why I haven't posted, it's because my palms are so glued to my face I can't pull them off.

this was a problem, wasn't it

 

but it was a pretty rare one and I'm surprised you remember. why is it that you remember all these things that I consider super trivial

 

but yeah just add that to the list of "reasons why the old system stunk" lol
