ZOS Discussion Icon - Need a different one for developers/managers than for moderators...

...so we can actually click on discussions that have hopefully useful replies from ZOS rather than just moderators posting that the discussion is closed or has been moved.

Of course, that would only be about 5% of the discussions that have the current ZOS icon and would show how poor the dialog is with ZOS in these forums.

    Probably less than that. Probably around a hundredth of a percent. Most posts here outside of moderator actions belong to Kevin and Gina.

    That would be a nice addition to the Elder Scrolls Online Forums, in my opinion.

    Especially when forum moderation is required so often.

    It'd be great to separate the unique insight of the developers, or to see when they are responding to important issues brought up by the community.

    Agreed!

    And we also need a similar way to find our own replies in topics... like try finding all your replies in the "overland feedback" or "fashion" megathreads. Impossible. (If we post a lot, even the forum account's comments history won't help with this anymore.)

    Well, there's the "Dev Tracker" option.

    There was a forum feedback survey not too long ago. I remember putting this point in there, and Kevin also mentioned it that it would be one of the things they would like to change. I'm sure they are still working on reading and putting the feedback together. I have good hopes for other icons for moderators. just need a bit more patience.

    It would be the simplest thing to have different colors for different functions, dev/mod/community manager etc.

    You can search by author and generally find them alright. You can use it to search specific threads or the site as a whole.

    Not the first time this has been mentioned. I wonder what ever happened with that. Obviously, it didn't happen as predicted.

    I think it is great idea to change those for something else. Also, just a short feedback: would it be possible to have different icon for developer team & different for admin/mod ? Very often I see this icon and click on a forum thread hoping that it is a dev or community manager saying something interesting, only to realise it is forum moderation team. Would be nice to have different icons so people could know in advance what to expect.

    Thanks for the feedback on this, everyone. We are hoping to improve that process. It will take a little development work, but our hope is to get different icons for both dev/community and admin/mods. If it doesn't happen in this first round of changes, it will happen later this year. We'll keep everyone updated once we have more info on this. But wanted to highlight this is on our radar.

    @ZOS_Kevin it’s going on two years since we last heard about this - any updates? Will we see this in the new forums?
