    VIP Statuses...

    I'm really just curious. Is this a status that is earned or just given to someone, because the mods/admins like them? :p Really, I'm just asking this out of curiosity. I certainly won't be offended, if it is the latter. I run my own (non-computer related) web forum, and I have a lot of fun with the statuses myself. ;) I just have seen lots of these "VIPs" lately, and I've just been wondering where they came from.

    The VIP group was initially reserved for ex-moderators.
    It now also includes the former Legacy Mod group, which consists of members who are helping the team to move old (pre-OSNN) threads out of the Legacy forum back into their respective sections.
    Don't worry...there's no favoritism. The badge is earned. [​IMG]

    P.S. You might be able to earn a shiny VIP badge if you perform "special favors" for EP. [​IMG]

    LOL...thanks. I didn't think it was "favoritism" anyway. I just, for the life of me, couldn't figure out the meaning of it until now!

    I think you may have done something more deserving of rep points sometime recently.
