    So thanks to Percy's thread about Arch Judge asterisks, I thought of another asterisk that could be cool: An asterisk for Retired Moderators. This asterisk would probably be Gray, like *. Could this be cool? It would recognize the former mod's contribution to the server and service as a former member of Ioncraft staff.

    What do you guys think? Cool, or would it provoke too many bad memories with certain people (*cough*Chibi/Sparky/mods from when Ely and Mer were still mods *cough*)?

    What if the moderator got demoted due to abusing their powers or anything along the lines of forced demotion? Why would they deserve to get an asterisk for ruining the server?

    I don't really see a need for this, it doesn't really provide any value and is just a way to cluster chat. People know who have been moderators and it's already shown in the forums. I don't really think there is a point in game.

    To be honest I don't hate the idea I just think we should be focusing on the bigger issues such as the fact when a new person joins the server and they want to build "./p auto ./p claim" don't work when no mod would be on to help. Who would really stick around?

    This is also half a year old. But thanks for bringing it back, Alex. XD

    Also, for some reason, I said "mods from back when Badger, Ely, and Mer were still mods." I think I meant when Badger was NOT mod, and Ely and Mer were still mods.
    I think for those people it would be a case-to-case basis, depending on the severity of the ex-mod's abuse.
    It would be like the Retired Mod tag on the forums. If I remember correctly, Brad, Chibs and Marv have the Retired Mod forum tag.

    (And I may be wrong, but I don't know of any current players who were demoted as mod for abuse of some kind. Cao was inactive, and Mini resigned, if I recall. Don't know about Sock, but personally I would guess he would deserve the Retired Mod asterisk too, anyway.)
    True, it could clutter chat. Though I disagree with it not adding value, as it recognizes their service as former mods. Also, it's unique, as I don't know of any server that does this currently. (I don't know of any server that even acknowledges former mods though, either.)

    True, it is shown on the forums, but I'm thinking if, say, Simpo were to rejoin (isn't Simpo ex-mod?), newer players would have the ability to instantly recognised that he was an ex-mod. Or if Dani left and joined a year later, and decided to reapply after a few months, it wouldn't come as a total shock to non-forum-searching players if he were to be accepted due to his previous experience. :)
    Wait, what's wrong with newer players not being able to do stuff? :p

    True. When I posted this, there were fewer issues to be had, leaving more time for other things. XD

    Once for abusing, once because I annoyed Leader, and the most recent was for inactivity.

    Okay.

    I still would think you would get the star if it were implemented. Especially since you're still active. :)
