I want to make the icons for all our user groups uniform, but my Photoshop skills are sub-Padawan for that kind of thing. I know we have some artists here, so I was thinking about tossing around ideas for this. We'd need only a few, and I'd like them to each have a different Genesis character.

These are the ones we need:


- Administrator
- Staff Writer
- Moderator
- Banned User
- Site Contributor


They should be as thin as possible, but they can each have different colors (so long as they show up nicely on each forum skin). I don't know, maybe we could cobble together a contest for this?

Shouldn't a "Regular User" be appropiate too? It looks kind of unfitting with banned user above site contributor :p.

I like the current Administrator and Banner User icons. Nice, subtle, slender and sexy. I also think its about time the power crazy mods were identifiable from the general rabble. Zebbe should have his own user icon too:

Haha, thank you, Mr Smith. You should also have one. Unfortunately, I can't draw anything. :p

That's awesome! Could you make one for staff, contributor, and moderator? :D

Dude, you rock! I've added these in, so those who have contributed at least ten reviews/features becomes an official site contributor with rank!

Cool, I think mine needs a line break after it, though. :)

You just needed to be switched over to the moderator usergroup as your primary one. Let me know if you - or anyone else - has any problems with posting, etc.

It Involves creating a user group, which i'm currently trying to find.

You can't create user groups unless you are an Admin.

Also, ever since I got this icon, the forums have been weird. Suddenly my options were changed to only view 5 posts per page in a thread (that got really annoying VERY fast). I switched it back. Now I notice that I have no PM options at all. They are gone. I can't figure out how to turn them back on! WTF? FIX NOW!

My guess is that a MODERATOR user group was created and all of the options weren't set up properly.

I've put it so that you get the icon when you contribute 10 reviews/articles. Zebbe's almost there! As it is, there are only three others who have submitted as much and are forum members.

There were one or two options that were different, but they should be good now. Let me know if anything else is wonky for you. :)
