no idea what that means.

what is a verified icon ?

if you want people to be on your staff, you create a group, you add them to the group, you give that group a rank image. make that group the default group for all of its members.

If i remember it correctly, then somewhere on this forum is a similar topic (maybe it was in ideas forum). It wasn't very popular, but it's possible that someone may think about/create it.

Are the posters going to be so well known that they could easily be mistaken for someone else? The point of the twitter verification is that you know for sure that that really is the Justin Bieber or whoever. If you have a tick verifying you really are the one and only LongRunner, what difference does that make? No one knows who you are anyway.

I know, but they have no idea who you are anyway so you're not really verifying anything.

Who is going to do the verifying?

As Lumpy said earlier the groups facility will do all that you are asking here

You can do all of that with ranks and/or groups - as far as I can recall there is at least one extension that will allow multiple ranks

and , there is no way for anyone to get a rank or group membership unless you give it to them. so anyone with the rank or special rank of a admin or moderator etc. has to be verified to begin with.

now, wanting to make them look special because you have given them a rank etc. make perfect sense. so, follow what I said above about creating the needed groups, putting people in the relevant group and giving that group and/or its members special ranks using whatever images you wish.

done.
