So, most of you guys know about the personal emblems that PC staff members have, also known as "Ego Emblems".

So, if you were a member of staff, what would your ego emblem be? [Image and Description]

Additionally, whether you're a staff member or not, what is he story behind your emblem?

Which Ego Emblems have you received? [Stealing this from Mr Cat Dog]

My ego emblem is the 'Good Noodle' one. Essentially, it comes from an episode of SpongeBob SquarePants in which Patrick joins SpongeBob for the day at Boating School. Looking at one of the walls of the classroom, he spots the Good Noodle Board: if a student does something well, he or she gets a star on the Good Noodle Board. Predictably, SpongeBob has the most by a country mile.

So, if you get a Good Noodle emblem from me, it's because you've been doing really good work in the forum. For the most part I only give it to members, but a few mods have them for certain deeds they've done.

In terms of ego emblems I've received... Netto Azure's, Hiiro's and Miss Doronjo back when he was still a mod (*sniff*).

My ego emblem is Feature Majorette, which I didn't make actually. lol At the time, I didn't make icons/emblems or anything and was bad at it, so Klippy was kind enough to make it for me. But ummm I like majorettes and baton twirling. That's really all the story there is behind it. Nothing special.

I have ego emblems from Klippy, Manipulation, Erik Destler, Hiiro, Went, Drew, Forever, Patchisodfa Yotuohausor, Yuoaman, Luke, Captain Fabio, Kaori, and Anatasia.R. :) Phew, that's a long list. Haha. Oh, that's in order they were given btw.

Honorary Leprechaun
You may not go to the best school in the universe, but you're Toujours' leprechaun anyway!

This is mine! It's referring to the University of Notre Dame, my school, obviously. The picture is the Golden Dome on campus, and our mascot is the Leprechaun, so you being an honorary Leprechaun is a good thing. :3

Which ones I've gotten? I got Nica's before I knew what ego emblems were and she wouldn't tell me ("Forever, why am I a watermelon? I don't get it. :(" ), Mr Cat Dog's Good Noodle up there (I didn't even know it was an ego! xD), Captain Fabio's Pyramid Head one, and most recently Live's Suspiciously Stunning one.

If I had an ego emblem, it would be called "A kawaii bro" and have a picture of someone who is kawaii idek /put a whole 30 seconds of thought into that

I ONLY HAVE CAPTAIN FABIO'S EMBLEM AHA.

I've got Drew, Luke's, and David's. *A*

Mine used to be a a cow sprite from Harvest Moon SNES with an 8-bit pixel heart on top of it's head and it was called, "Loki Loves You!" .... I don't remember what I put as the desc though. xD

There was no particular story behind my emblem; I remember someone else had made one at that point since emblems were pretty new, and I was like, "I want one too!" So I just made one and slapped it onto the people I liked. XDD;;

I didn't know that every staff member could have one of these so when I was a mod I didn't look into making one. Not that I would have known what to make it anyway. xD And if I magically had one today it would be... uh... probably some picture of a scarf and the description would be something about staying warm. Or something.

I think I have one from Manipulation, Mr Cat Dog, Anastasia.R, and Luke.

September 8th, 2011, 11:44 AM
If Anime Junkie Emblem(pretty sure it's a forum emblem though) counts then I have on from Kirbychu.

It would be an image of Kenshin. Honestly I can't think of a description for it atm.

There wouldn't be a story behind it since I named my account after the character so it would only seem fitting.

September 8th, 2011, 11:58 AM
Er I probably wouldn't have one. I'm not good at making emblems soo yeah. Maybe if I could have one I would ask someone else to make it for me, but yeah... I don't have an ego emblem.

As for ones I received... none out of the 47 emblems I have. How unfortunate.

I was totally thinking about this the other day!

So, if you were a member of staff, what would your ego emblem be? [Image and Description]
Title: The Furret King's Blessing
Desc: You have recieved the blessing of the Furret King! Be grateful!

Or maybe a creeper emblem. I really like Minecraft.

Additionally, whether you're a staff member or not, what is he story behind your emblem?
Furret are the best Pokemon ever. What is more to say? I think I love Furrets more than anyone else and it's kinda my signature Pokemon.
Which Ego Emblems have you received?
Just Megan's. Got it when she became mod. n_n

My ego emblem would probably be "Gallade fanboy" (with my dA icon on it). I think that's because in some favorite Pokemon posts, I reference Gallade in them.

I've just spent half an hour looking for an appropriate image for my ego emblem, but I have come to no avail, and in the interest of not wasting my entire morning, I've given up for now :P. It would definitely have something to do with a Raichu though, obviously.

I've been given ego emblems by: Forever, Erik Destler, Meganium90, Kaori and Toujours. I could have sworn it was more than that, but oh well lol

EDIT: And Luke, as of tonight :)

Your crisp personality has been noted as clean, poised and very seductive, while your warm, musky subtleness is enough to draw natural curiosity. One thing is certain, you're fierce.

I have ego emblems from Klippy, parallelzero, Matthew, Erik Destler, Lightning, Sydian, Hiiro, Forever, Rukario, Luke, Miss Doronjo and Kaori.

I'm thinking of changing mine, though.

This may come as a shock to some, but I have no ego emblem at the present time, partially due to me not being sure what I want it to be related to and also partially due to me being one of the few staff members with little patience for working with graphics.

I presently have ego emblems from BinaryPeaches and Forever.

Despite being on staff for over a year now and some time between when emblems came out and when I left staff, I've yet to make an ego emblem. Emblems aren't usually my thing. You can tell that if you've ever seen the PotW one ;___;

Knowing me, if I ever get around to making one it'll have one of my stick figures in it. I love drawing them so much, and it's something I'd feel would be me. It would make it black and white and boring and no one would want it. :( Either that, or I'd make one with the Persona 4 main character because everyone needs more of him on their profiles. >:) I'd probably give my theoretical emblem to people I like, just for kicks. idk who though.

For the last question, I've got Went's, Drew's, and TwilightBlade's ego emblems right now.

moments.
September 8th, 2011, 08:43 PM
If I were on the staff, my emblem would have some pun with my user name for sure. "Do you ever wonder if we make moments in our lives, or if the moments in our lives make us?" That's probably too long, but something like that! :D
As for an image, no idea... Something sightly related, or not, whatever! xD

I've got Anastasia.R and Alternative's emblems, I could've sworn I had another though... Oh well!

You deserve to be locked up in an asylum, but when Harlequin broke out with the Joker, she opened your cell door as well. Because Harlequin is crazy and likes you. Stupid girl.

As for what emblems I have? I only have one from Matthew, back when he was a mod ( i miss u). I don't know who made the Work It emblem though, but assuming that is a 'Ego Emblem' (never heard that term before), thank you o' great and glorious staff member?

September 8th, 2011, 09:41 PM
As mentioned, mine is this.

I'M A WATERMELON! I'M A WATERMELON!
http://www.pokecommunity.com/images/emblems/watermelon.png
Don't be a sour grape. Be a watermelon instead!

^ It is weird. Actually it's in reference to something that happened over a year ago and at the time it seemed appropriate to be the ego emblem lool.

I try not to give it out much at all now though because I'm like "hmmm if I give it out every few months people won't notice that I've almost given out mine the most" XD;

As for the ones I have from others, Went, Lightning, Patchisou Yutohru, BinaryPeaches, Hiiro, Luke, Rukario, Miss Doronjo, Live_wire466, Netto Azure, Yuoaman, Kaori, Anastasia. R, Alternative, Toujours.

...never noticed how many I have lol.

I don't really have an ego emblem and I don't plan on making one either. I honestly don't see the point of them.
If I ever do decide on getting one...I might make a reference to farmers or something, just because. I'd probably give it to a lot of people too.
Or maybe a reference to a game I like, I don't know.

The only ego emblem I got is Kaori's.

So, if you were a member of staff, what would your ego emblem be? Additionally, whether you're a staff member or not, what is the story behind your emblem?
In previous iterations of this topic, I've jokingly said that my ego emblem would be something along the lines of this:

Ruthless Genocidal Warmonger
[insert appropriate-sized image of nuclear mushroom cloud here]
Description: You like war. No, friend, YOU LOVE WAR!

To be honest, though, I simply wouldn't bother with an ego emblem to begin with. I'm not too fond of emblems in general anyway.

Which ego emblems have you received?
None, and I'd like to keep it that way.

Megan's Lucky Star
Shine bright, good friend. You are considered one of the luckiest stars for a certain Meganium. :3 Keep on shining!

^Yep, that's my ego emblem. I wasn't the one that came up with the image though, but I did came up with the description. I was listening to Katy Perry's "ET", and the words "You're my lucky star" came on, and that's where the whole "Lucky Star" thing was born. I tend to give it out sometimes, but only those that are really good friends of mine, and for the most amazing people.

As for receiving ego emblems, sadly I don't have any.

IT'S A SIIIIIGN
A certain Fangirl has accepted you to have Red at your profile. It has to be one, right?

I suppose that the description doesn't really quite make sense for those who have met me after my whole Red reign, but once upon a time the only theme I would have would be Red, and I was completely obsessed. He's still there today though, and this is kind of my way of showing it I guess? I don't quite remember how many people who I have given this out to, but for the most part it's to reaally close friends, or perhaps someone who has done something awesome for me. I suppose these days if I were to give it to anyone, they would have to be really close friends of mine and would know how much I love Red (which I don't speak about very often, so *hinthint* the first thing one would have to do is bring up Pokemon Special, haha~)

The title was due to the fact that I would say 'IT'S A SIIIIIIIIGN' to things in which I think is a sign is signal to something. With the description, I thought it would be appropriate. Although, the description was made after the title, soooo.

As for Ego emblems I have Forever's, Miss Doronjo's, Netto's, Ana's, aaand Fabio's.

Pyramid Head doesn't hate you. But he doesn't like you. At least you are still alive... For now...

This one be mine. It is pretty easy to see the connection with this one! :3

As to what Ego emblems I have, I can't remember and still half asleep to look, but I have a couple! :3
I think Sydian's was the first one that I got.

You've managed to escape the two-leggeds' tribulations, but there's more to come. Spirits such as yours can't be broken easily.

I guess that'd be mine, if I were to...you know.

I don't have any ego emblems, and to be frank, I didn't know what they were called and why they were given out until I saw this thread.

September 13th, 2011, 01:18 PM
I have no "Ego" emblems. Why that is, I don't know; but I don't particularly care.

Of course, as for an ego emblem...I probably wouldn't have one...what's the use if you haven't gotten any yourself? XD

Isn't it amazing?! The texture! The nostalgia! The ancient, moldy scent of the crazy person who gave this to you! Ooooh... the texture!! I can't get enough of it!!

This was mine when I was still a moderator; basically, when I give this to someone, its because they are really, really awesome, or just close friends!
Or really really crazy; take your pick!

Ego Emblems, I have: Hiiro's, Patchisou Yutohru's, Luke's, BinaryPeaches's, aaaaand Alternative's.

..not without Dante's help, though. But yeah, after that ordeal, Dante considers you a pal.

Additionally, whether you're a staff member or not, what is he story behind your emblem?
..uhh, seriously, it'd probably something on the lines of the one above. I'd put more thought and more effort into it if I were to make a real one, of course, but this one gives a basic idea. I mean, I'm obsessed with Dante and you're sure to get an emblem which has him in it if it has been made by me. >:D Only for people I'd consider 'Dante's pals'! >:U

Well since my username (for almost everything) assassinjay1229 is inspired by the Assassin's Creed games (one of my favorite series of games), I'd probably give it out in mass on my birthday 12/29 (the other part of my username)

I really don't like these "ego emblems" it's just a highlight of everything that is wrong with the emblem system. Aren't emblems supposed to be for people who have done something to EARN them? These emblems are nothing more than "oh you're friends with staff so have a medal" it's just a horrible reflection on the emblem system, and the community as a whole.

"if you aren't friends with staff, you're not notable" what an incredibly silly thing. I would never take part in it, I don't need to give somebody a stupid emblem to show them that they are special to me. I will just tell them personally that I love them.

If I would have one, I'd probably base it on my username aka birthstone 'diamond', or perhaps some crazy thought on that random spur of the moment. XD

I have to agree, in many respects, but, I don' think emblems were ever serious. I don't count them as rewards usually, or I believe there's a level of humour through to a level of reward for each of them. Like the No emblem isn't something rewarding, and it's just as easily earned as an ego emblem imo. But then there's actual rewarding emblems to get such as winning Poem of the Week or Icon of the Week or even things like winning events at the Get Together's. I don't think there's anything fundamentally "wrong" with the emblem system when it hasn't been something people take seriously for a long time. I'd be more willing to point fingers at the staff members who use them. Which leads me into my next point.

I prefer the ego emblems which are more based on decent posting than friendship or whatever the case may be. While I wouldn't object to either, I think some ego emblems have more of an element of reward to them. I never wanted one, and still wouldn't, but if I ever did make one it would be for those who I deem to work hard for their sections and who post well. I wouldn't be inclined to give one to my friends for the sake of it. I'd rather give some members a pat on the back, and I'd like to say why too, when handing it out. So possibly an additional follow up PM. This would work like the Helping Hand emblem, just a little more personal and with additional reasoning I suppose. But yeah, I don't think they're such a negative thing really, it's a bit of fun. Perhaps I'm bias.

I have a couple. Parallelzero's hate emblem, emblems belonging to Patchisou Yutohru, Went, Hiiro, Sydian, Chibi Chan, Manipulation, Forever (I made the icon for that one actually haha), Rukario, Luke, Mr. CatDog, Netto Azure, LiveWire, Anastasia R and Captain Fabio. So 15 altogether. I've been good friends with most of these guys, a few of them don't know me that well, one of them I've never had a real conversation with, and some of them I've just worked with on projects and we've had a good time doing them.
