I have no idea what to say, so I’m gonna see if the swear filter works. Fuck it.

Edit: There is no swear filter.

Advanced science is being conducted over here

The results are promising, but not for the test subjects.


(Santa Corn during not-christmas) #9

Holy Belgium @hhyyrylainen has a profile pic! What is this sorcery!? :OOOOO
he says, while having no profile pic…


#10

For some reason (or probably because I’m not a moderator, just an admin) when I post there isn’t a shield icon next to my name, but on my profile page there is one.


(He who abuses the search function) #11

When checking your profile I (as in, not you) can’t see a shield icon though.


#12

So only I can see a shield, but only on my profile. Discourse is probably confused because I’m an admin but not a moderator.


(The Goat Mod) #13

I do see a shield when I check your profile.


#14

Then it’s probably only visible to staff (moderators and admins). Maybe this is some security feature that tries to hide who the admins are from normal users to not have hackers target their accounts.


(Santa Corn during not-christmas) #15

I think it just means you’re an admin, Seregon and NickTheNick have the same shield on the dev forums (and i’m not a mod there afaik)


(He who abuses the search function) #16

I think it just means it’s a moderator or something (as I can see the shield for crodnu and Aquos), and that hhyyrylainen’s explanation could be correct
EDIT: We are idiots, apparently if you hold your mouse over the symbol, it says “This user is a moderator”
Whelp I guess that solves that


#17

It doesn’t on the profile page, neither on mine nor crodnu’s. So I still don’t know why the shield shows up.


(The Third Duke of Silly) #18

Shield machine br0ke?


(He who abuses the search function) #19

But… Didn’t you say you could see the symbol when you looked at your own profile screen?
Also, I do see the symbol on Crodnu and Aquos’ profile page tho


#20

I can see the symbol on my profile but when I hover over it I don’t get a tooltip saying why I have the shield. Like when I hover over the shield next to crodnu’s name in a post I see “This user is a moderator”.
