Moderator tags


#1

Is it just me or is it a bit obnoxious to tag up moderators outside of their fora? Always makes me a bit nervous when I’m replying to some guy with moderator next to his name…


#2

Don’t be nervous, we’re a gentle bunch.

The next software update will have some major updates to the way modding works so we’ll see what happens then. Since this package doesn’t have the name-coloration feature the old software had though, we’ll probably stick with some way of identifying mods as such throughout the site, which may well be the current titles.


#3

Context?

Do you mean, for example, if you tagged me in the legal category to have me suspend someone breaking forum policy?

Or?


#4

No I just mean, right now your name ranlee has a big Moderator next to it. I think as TG says we had a color code before which is a little less intimidating.


#5

Maybe I could just have a “Legend” added next to my name, that’d be sweet


#6

Is the Shield icon just enough?


#8

It’s a bit ambiguous.


#9

Maybe we mods can get a thick colored border around their profile pic?


#10

Discourse decided not to make “some major updates to the way modding works” as I said would happen, so we made some smaller changes here. Mods are shown above OPs in their forums, and we removed the “moderator” title by default, leaving the shield.


#11

Much better. Now it looks like that’s your House in Henry Fuckin Porter Mujician’s College there.

I can’t believe how unstrung Brother @the_bear was getting over that shit, man. For a big guy, he sure spooks easy.


#12

I hate to be that guy, but it seems the mod showing next to OPs has disappeared.


#13

Doesn’t it appear only if you are the moderator in that particular forum?


#14

That looks so much better. I’d like to nominate myself for the Nobell Piece Prize for that.


#15

Where exactly? It won’t appear in the “rolling” header by the way, but only above the OP.


#16

I’m not seeing it any of my modded forums and ones that I’m not modding.

I’m on PC.


#17

They seem to be working for me.
