    If that was the case with Vegeta, then how did Mbxx gained Tazmo's trust in becoming an S-Admin?

    staff cannot look at PMs

    smods can see a member's incoming rep history, which means we can see everyone that has repped you and the reasons they have put down.

    admins can see both a member's incoming and outgoing rep history...so they can see the messages left by everyone who has given you rep and they can see all of the rep you have given to others.

    Nobody can see PMs, but we can look at rep histories both received and given out.

    Does anyone on these forums personally know Tazmo, like any of the staff??

    I heard that NF was the idea of Reznor, I believe. He suggested a forum to go with narutofan.com and here it is. Is this true?

    Not even remotely, but I'm sure he'd want you to believe it was. XDD

    And it depends on your definition of "personally", I guess. A few of the smods and admins talk to him on MSN every so often, but I don't think anyone is particularly close. (Otherwise it'd be a lot easier to get him to do stuff like upload new skins. XD)

    a battle to the death. two mods enter, one smod leaves. the winner devours the loser absorbing their power allowing them to mod the entire forum. afterwards a new mod is chosen to fill the gap that is left.

    i'm guessing if certain section(s) are still having problems despite the mods there they promote someone to smod to help out.

    What's the difference between 'Advisor' and 'Salieri'? Also, what does Salieri mean? Like the composer? Just curious.

    no difference except salieri is a custom rank

    I would assume it's the composer...it is the former music mod that does have the rank after all...xD

    How does a regular person get modded, just wondering? Is it that the staff recognize a member that has contributed to the forum somehow, whether it be helping out noobs or uploading certain things like music, and then the whole staff talks about the person on whether they should or not because I don't know how but I remember seeing a screen pic of the staff section and one of the threads in there was about how the staff socializes about who should be modded.

    I'm just really curious.

    basically, post actively in a section that is in need of a mod, have a good personality, and be noticed by the staff. names then get suggested and discussed until a member is agreed upon and then they PM the member asking if they want the job.

    pretty much just like you thought

    Note that you can have all of the qualities of a potential staff member, but never be offered a position, unless there is an actual need for a mod in the section you happen to be the most active.

    Can any level of moderator or admin change our avatar/signature?

    yes *section mods need to request that power though...but smods and admins can do it

    personal information such as what?...your registration email?...smods and admins can see that

    Admins can change your password, but can't necessarily know what your password is.

    one scenario: f they've forgotten it and their original email doesn't work anymore for them to get their password sent to them

    another scenario: if someone has hacked your account, then you need to change your password so whoever got into your account can't get back into it

    Can Admins rep themselves? I just read over these eight pages and got lots of information. Now I'm curious if they can rep themselves.

    Eh as Taxman or someone else(not sure who usually says this) but mod on nf have less power than most other forums.

    I don't think they can. When they click on the rep scale it'd just say how much rep they've received for that post I think but they don't need to rep themselves since they can make their rep whatever they want.:zaru
