Faking a`mod badge

I seem to remember from a while back I cannot find the thread though that, creating a fake mod badge was against the rules but since they became centralized it was no longer a problem.

As Im one of the people voted most unlikley to ever achieve any sort of badge I saw no harm in using a fake av for a day or so.

Is it such a crime ?

    I think it's still sort of against the rules - they centralised it so that it was harder to fake it but if someone tries to pass themselves off as a mod they get jailernated pretty quick.

    Dunno about making silly mod badges, like one that says 'sod' or something similarly hilarious like that. The main problem was making sure people didn't terrorise newbs by pretending to be mods. The mods like to keep a monopoly on terrorising newbs. Oh, snap.

    Of course, you'd have to get an official mod stance on the ruling.

    The only person I can think of with a faux mod badge is brian140, anyway. He's had that since time immemorial, though.

    How did you get your fake mod badge centered Dely?

    They told me on this side of the forums I shouldn't just blatantly transform anyone's profile into a mockery of my worship, so I'll let that slide.

    This is not the appropriate place to voice concerns about being banned or jailed, or any other personal gripes about the moderation. For something like that, you should PM or email one of us.

    In and that people--people much like yourself, who're tap-dancing on indescribably thin ice--have been banned for it, yes.

    Ecoterrorism is actually the single largest terrorist threat at the moment. They don't usually kill people, but they blow up or set on fire very expensive things.
