It's at the very bottom of the guidelines, which details the member titles and privileges.


Yeah, I saw that a couple days later and saw it's been like that for a while. facepalm.gif

Can someone explain me what a "OG Member" was and what "OG" stands for?

Slang for people who were around when the forum was first brought into existence. In reality, an excuse thrown around by said old members to justify shitting all over the forums and not receiving any sort of reprimand for such actions.

The best part of that equation comes in the fact that I'm colorblind when it comes to that sort of thing. If you screw up, I will act on it, and/or expect my talented mod team to make me proud again.

Ask Smikey, ask APX, ask many of my other friends on IDW that I have warned in the past. There is no such thing as "safety" and nobody holds a get out of jail free card. Not even the moderators. Not even myself. Not even Perry. The mod team has their own warn system that keeps them in check.

Does a "Forum Mayor" have some or all rights of a moderator?

No, it does not. It is merely a title. Basically, it is the same as an Advanced Member. smile.gif

Yeah it has no extra permissions of any sort, aside from a funky badge and username color on the front page.

Why there isn't a "Core Member" group as on the WME Forums? Is this to save disk space?

BTW: I still don't know what the acronym "OG" stands for.

You would have to explain the differences between core members and the existing advanced member group here. I don't frequent WME, so I have no idea how Perry runs things over there.

Core members can attach files with 350KB size, can store 200 PMs and can bypass the 30 secs flood protection. You need 5000 posts to become a Core Member.

Another question comes into my mind: why there aren't forums for Arcade Stage 5 and 6?

We are in the process of generating 6 and 7. AS5 will be archived into its own subsection.

As I mentioned over on WME when someone asked a similar question, disk space is irrelevant. We will not run out of space on this server. All we really have to worry about are DNS problems and unexpected 'maintenance'. derp.gif

Unless, of course, you're N1.

The core member privileges are relatively similar, but the post requirement would shut out the majority of IDW members. Really, the only real benefit would be the flood protection removal. Barely anybody uses post attachments anymore.

The IDAS section is getting an overhaul soon. I noticed the outdated section and ordered some improvements over a month ago.

I don't know about you guys, but I also wouldn't mind having more space in my inbox.

But yeah, 5000 posts isn't something I'd get to very quickly.

This. I was very pleasantly surprised to see my inbox capacity double when I became a mod - this is very useful to me. cool.gif

I think you could probably afford to make the 200-count inbox for all advanced members (800+ posts). I would recommend it for every member, really, but that probably would take too much space.

How about an auto logout feature? Like after 24 hours? I keep getting distracted a by a phone call, or text and forgetting I'm logged in. facepalm.gif

Considering it doesn't work like Skype or AIM, I'm not sure what such a feature would entail. It would require changing how the forum software handles cookies on a user-by-user basis which I would imagine would be way more complicated than it's worth.

What specifically are you trying to avoid? If you are inactive, your username drops off the 'active user' list after 15 minutes. I can visit the page, leave, and I'll remain for 15 minutes as long as I don't come back within that time or change pages. Also, after a period of inactivity the forum wipes your 'unread topics' history as well. So what about being logged in are you trying to avoid? Is there a security issue with your mobile device?

I am with Don on this, what's the purpose of auto logout after 24 hours? All you have to do is uncheck the Remember Me option when you log in. It'll log you out after you are inactive for 60 minutes. Then you have to log in again. Wouldn't that solve your dilemma?
