No, you are in the waterlogged, decaying wood club. You graduate to metal when you get to 100.

But the star is the best item in mario, its what you strive to attain. I guess someone could have shines...

Shine get!

I would have thought youd want 5 Viewtifuls or something... 5 six machines maybe. (Argh! the numbers)

yes than you very much http://redwing.hutman.net/%7Emreed/warriorshtm/allcaps.htm Man that site is invaluable

Once you hit 5 stars all you can look forward to is a new position name... oh well. Theyre still fun. I wonder when we'll get to any of the ones we suggested in the old position suggestion thread.

I find that very insensitive and hypocritical Mr. Punctuation-is-optional.

That brings up a good point. Will Steve have a different icon for each mod? I think that would add to the character of the site.

You guys bring up a good point. I actually WANT to give out different "stars" but there are a few issues with this. If you can help me out in finding icons which adhere to these rules I will gladly enact them:

1) The image can be 16-18 pixels wide and 16-18 pixels high, (I often add extra space around the image to make it approximately 18 wide and 18 high).

2) The image has to be clean and sharp, so you can't take a larger image and scale it down, otherwise it gets all anti-aliased.

3) The image has to be video game related, look good, and "make sense" (i.e. 5 stars next to each other makes sense, but 5 mario heads wouldn't).

And that's about it. If people can find some icons which meet these requirements I have totally up for adding next ones to the mix.

The Space Invaders isn't bad. The shoe doesn't look so great with 5 in a row (see what I mean).

The other issue I have is that I LIKE the star, a lot. I almost feel like removing the star for you guys and giving you 5 space invaders instead is almost a step down. Keep looking around to see if you can find any other "stars" which fit these criteria.

Heh, I wouldn't want the ones I made to ever replace the stars. ;D I think the stars are the best, myself, if you just want one type of icon. Is there any way for individual members to have the option between different ones? I honestly have no idea if that even possible.

Here's another thing you could do: Give space invaders instead of stars at the beginning, but when you complete five space invaders, then you start over with one star and keep building up to 5 stars.

Also, here's some I found, regardless of wheter they look good or not:

Joust shields:

Toad heads:
