I takes effort? And how's that? They just have to navigate to the bottom of the page, click on ModCP and then go to the emblem part and then just write the name of the member who has to be granted and voila! You're done...
...was that really such a bothering thing to do? D:
They don't, yeah. But still, some members find it nice to have those thingies on their profiles. And it would't hurt if the moderators become a little more liberal in..you know, giving away those thingies. xD;
I don't really wanna say it..but some of them are misers. ;;
Even though they may know that a particular member may deserve a specific emblem, they just don't give the emblem. If that member goes asking for the emblem, he gets the NONONO instead. :/
...and most of the time..mods just forget about the whole 'rewarding emblems to deserving members' thing. Once Larry even said that he forgets that emblems even existed. ;;
