We need more ways to be more awesome than members. How so than to add more mod perks?

Here's my suggestions.
  1. Even Bigger Limits For Everything
    Give us the largest avatar sizes, biggest PM boxes, bigger signature limits, everything.
  2. Re-Instate Mod Pay (But Only For Mods Who Have Been Working Over Two Years)
    Seriously, my candy won't buy itself. Since I was on staff for so long, I should be eligible. :D Give new mods incentive for actually staying around and doing a good job by making it 2+ years oly.
  3. Mod Name Changes ONLY!
    I want to change my name to Ashton Katgane*. It is the most awesome name ever. But I don't want to give up my awesome postcount, and I am too cheap to donate money. So just let the mods have name changes. THE MEMBERS WILL BE SO JEALOUS
  4. Porn Lounge
    We deserve it. Enough said.
  5. Custom Rank Badges For Everyone!
    I'm so sick of it being an h-staff perk. I work hard and I can't have one?? That's total ********. Let the mods have them too!

Suggestions are welcome!

*see this for awesomeness. LOOK HOW SEXY IT WOULD BE if I had used the right font

I do agree with custom rank badges, mainly because back in 2010, watermelon was amazing. Legit I want that - oh wait I have ranks disabled. Maybe custom for profiles only? If so, WANT. Except I know that's impossible.

Either way, funny joke Sammi! If only. :(

My thoughts on these.

1. HELL YES. AGREE AGREE AGREE.

2. NO WAY IN HELL SHOULD IT JUST BE FOR THOSE WHO'VE BEEN MODS FOR OVER 2 YEARS.

3. **** no we are not taking down PC for our own vanity.

4. **** that. It'll just be filled with all your guys's niche fetishes such as teddy bears, bestiality, and those furry loli trap threads Netto loves to make. Actually, now that I think about it, it'll be nice not to have porn threads mixed in with the important threads where things actually get done.

5. HELL YES DO WANT.

Okay, I'm getting really sick of you mods acting so entitled. No to everything. You're lucky we even let you keep your colored usernames at the rate you people are going. :\

Coming from the staff category who do NOTHING. The Moderators of PC are the people who keep it functioning.

What do you guys even do anymore?

Fabio has a point y'know. I don't remember the last time I've seen a higher staff do something. I think we should be allowed everything on that list. I also want a rotating avatar. Give it to me.

Of course you guys would want more perks because it pertains to you. Honestly, I'm okay with a bigger PM box for you guys because I remember how annoying it was to have to delete things all the time when I wanted to save them, but evertyhing else? Keep dreaming, buddy.

I'd agree with giving you more PM space if we get more space as well. I'm about to hit my 1700 PM limit and I'm too lazy to delete anything.

As an ex-S-Mod as well as Führer of PokéCommunity, I WANT MY ****ING FÜHRER TITLE BACK, *****ES!

I'm going to be a ****ing hotshot lawyer, so I don't care about any chicken**** mod pay, and if you were getting your porn from THIS PLACE then you need to get yourselves better acquainted with the internet, and name changes are for pansy-ass mother****ers that can't commit to one thing, and who gives a rat's ass about Private Messages and avatars?

But the titles? Now that sammi's brought it up, I'mma hound you into the mother****ing ground about this. Come at me, bro!

At least increase the size of the avatars. 170 x 170 (which is what I think is the size for the h-staff and Tier 6 Supporters) is perfectly fine.

I agree with more PM space. I get a ton of PMs everyday concerning the Adoption Center, new member questions, NOT TO MENTION I SAVE A TON OF PMS and too lazy to download them & save them in a word doc.

Bring back name changes for mods. I'd like to change my name weekly since it'd make me cool and unique. And that's what I am. You're diminishing my personality and humanity with your rules and systems. The weak shall rise up :( Also we should decorate the mod forum with squirrels js.

I've got a great one. The Mod stickers should be twice as big as regular stickers. Super mods 3x as big, etc. All the way up. If PPN posts, it should be a PAGE LONG STICKER. I can see no potential drawbacks.

Seconding this in its entirety. That way we KNOW when he's decided to chime in on a thread.

Even though I hate mod badges unless they're shiny custom ones, I am in full support of this. The members will totally know who's boss! 8)

Definitely think we do enough to deserve far more than we get now. Name changes, bigger limits, and mod pay are all absolute yes from me. Do we really need a new server anyway? Use the money that would go into the server to pay the mods imo.

^ If the mod pay only applies to mods that have been here 2+ years, you know that doesn't include you, right? lol So why does it matter to you. :( I think only...6 or 7 of us have been here that long. Maybe a few more. Not gonna bother trying to count admins cause lol math.

That's pretty elitist on the older mods' side, Syd.

But son, we've stuck it out in this dump for two years. Most people don't make it that long. It's only fair. I can think of a handful of mods we had last year that are no longer on staff now.

Not our problem it took you so long to get promoted.

Digi and Astinus are the only mods that are left from when I got promoted. I'm so old!

But I don't get it. Most mods leave because they have offline stuff to take care of, from the looks of LoA threads I've read. How can you consider yourselves 'more worthy' staff just because you haven't had such things for two years or more?

Mods leave because they are too weak to stand this. Full stop.

Also I still say no to everything. Stop discussing something that will go nowhere.
