    Hi, I'm a GBAtemp regular right now and I have a request. How do ribbons work? Can someone explain the order of green and red ribbons. How to trade greens for reds. Being an administrator/moderator and so on.... I need an explanation from top to bottom. Thanks.

    Thanks! Now I get it but still a question for anyone, after posting a certain number of posts, do you get to choose if you want to be a moderator/administrator/staff and etc... ?

    no mods/admins/staff are chosen or else a lot of people would just spam up their posts to be a mod lol

    Wow! I was just looking at your profile because a lot are talking about you then I check on my question and WOAH! You're on my topic. [​IMG] Anyway. If it's not by choosing, then how does it work? (Question is for anyone not only Hadrian.)

    Basically you'll have to be known to the red guys fairly well, be very trust worthy and be someone who wants to be staff to help the forum and not just for the status.

    That or know Costellos love secrets.

    I sent a PM to shaun asking if I could be a mod, but he hasn't replied... Shaun, if you're reading this, please reply! I think I'm a good contributor and I can be trusted (if I say so myself), so I'd like to become a mod. It's not for the status (yeah, of course I'll be happy, but that doesn't matter), but for just being able to quickly remove any rule-breaking posts.

    Usually one of the first rules to becoming a mod is to never ask to become one [​IMG]

    speaking from experience with modding a few forums, asking to be a mod is the best way to NOT be a mod, you get my drift?

    Yup enjoy your ribbons guys, I miss mine, this stupid sheriff thing sucks.

    Could be worse though I suppose, better then having a stupid newspaper there instead. [​IMG]

    If you ask to be a MOD you don't get to be a mod so don't ask to be one.

    This is pretty much true...

    To be honest, people that are asked to join the staff usually have absolutely no idea about it, and probably haven't thought about it..They are helpful members that got selected..
    Anyone who shows desire and asks to become staff isn't good choice, because there is a chance that they might abuse their power..

    And p1ngy.....I find you more sexy with one sheriff badge then couple of ribbons [​IMG]

    And yeah, stupid newspapers, how lame [​IMG]

    * Moniox slaps Toni & p1ngpong around around a bit with a shiny newspaper and awaits the possible trashing of his post.

    Depends where I put the ribbons though Toni, and I can still wear the cowboy hat... if that's your thing. [​IMG]
