    Those are only for privelidged, extra special forum mods.    Now don’t you feel left out?

    Actually, it appears that it is for MODs posting in their own forum.

    I figured it out. TMO Staff members only.
    You know, kinda like bar bouncers wearing “security” t-shirts!

    I am just playing with additional icons.  The gold stars have gone through 4 iterations too.  We will have an icon for Mods and Mac Specialists too.

    Actually, and don’t tell anyone, but we have a full custom icon set being developed for us by the folks that made the icons on our home page.

    Also, note that mods and admins, including our Mac Specialists as well as staff do not get additional icons based on their posts.
