    How much would it cost to get a Van Master tag?

    Another point as to why users should have to ask for the banner is because a solid 70% of that list are inactive on the forum. What's the point in giving them a role to show they're developers if they're not around to offer support? It'd just be sat on their inactive profiles with no real use.

    @Apache Thunder is still around. He contributed a lot to the DS(i) Hacking Scene.
    Credits from the Twilight Menu thread:
    Apache Thunder: Providing the Miku theme (not made by him) for Acekard theme, nesDS TWL Edition, and the DSi splash from NTR Launcher.

    @Rinnegatamante ported Wolfenstein 3D, Hexen 2, Quake 3 Arena to the PSP Vita to name a few.

    Love the idea.

    Hopefully this won’t provoke bad projects just to bruteforce a status here.

    I mostly agree with you about this, but maybe they'd become more active if they saw their new role?
    It's unlikely, but who knows.

    The main reason I put inactives on that list is because they are definitely developers, and it would feel strange leaving them off (smea is a hard one to skip especially!).
    Don't take the list as a formal request on their behalf, I just wanted to do it for recognition purposes. That's why I didn't tag them and create a shitstorm.
    Another good reason for that list is it might help someone make their case for their tag. Especially if several other people recommend them in this thread or elsewhere.

    (and I left out mrnbayoh, kill me XD)

    Very cool! I've only contributed one program related to the hacking scene here, so I don't feel qualified to request it.

    I am all for the new tag, though! Great job.

    Don't want to stir up trouble but since someone asked - why did it take us so long for this?
    As a matter of fact, it is difficult to reward/highlight one particular category of contributor and not another - what about cheat creators? translation project authors? firmware hackers? etc.
    Some of us were opposed to the 'Developer' title because we thought it would be opening pandora's box, so to speak. However after a long period of inaction, trying to figure out a better idea, we just thought 'okay lets do it anyway', better do something than nothing.

    Guys the way I see it, even if they didn’t do it in the past, it’s the thought that they actually took the time to really think on it, so for me personally, it’s better late than never.

    one thing I would like to see added, is that the 'developer tag' is clickable, a normal user can click on it, and on their member's profile page, there is 'developer tab' that has a list of their 'release threads' on gbatemp.
