A New Golden Age is Upon Us!

quote [ Or not. You know. Whatever, man. That's just like your opinion. ]

Okay... In theory, I've got the personalized Gold and Platinum subscriber mod code in place.

Here's the rules:
You can only do it once per account, so make it good.
Personalized mods can be +1, 0, or -1.
When used within an post your mod becomes available for use in that post by everyone making +10/-10 or +5/-5 [Your Mod] possible. this includes comments.
In order to keep the sidebar somewhat clean try and keep the visible size of your mods to between whatever space of about 15-20 characters.
I'm not saying to keep them SFW but keep in mind you'll be expected to be responsible with your mods about what posts you use them in if they are NSFW.
No personal attacks. positive or negative. You want to make a mod about yourself? That's fine. But referencing another person is crossing a number of lines. Not to mention not giving them a say in the matter.
You can be childish but refrain from being total assholes, please.
I'm retaining right to final veto, so rather than automating the process PM me to let me know what you would like your mod to be. I'll allow some experimentation and playfulness as long as it's not too disruptive, so if you've got an idea that you're not sure about, feel free to bring it up to me in your PM. I'll be happy to work with you.

We also still have 2 open slots left for the sub only mods. Just throwing that out there.

I disagree that we're romanticizing a memory of a real person; I think we're creating our culture's folklore, celebrating our community's values by personifying them into a mythical character who happens to be based on a figure from our history.

I don't think anyone is ignoring the fact that he was a real person with real behavior and issues, I just think that because we're all real people with real behaviors and issues who don't all get along, I just think that when someone isn't here any more to participate in our day-to-day process of being real people with issues, etc., it's perfectly natural for their "real personhood" to fade into memory. And sometimes when that happens, the person's legacy remains behind and takes on a life of its own.
