The Staff have selected 13 members who have been here the longest, posted the most and understand these forums more than any others to be Veterans.
Veterans have certain privileges on the forums such as being able to remove the "edited by" line when editing a post, and being able to change their vote in polls. They also have lighter restrictions on things like flooding and search limits, and greater PM and upload storage limits, and the ability to delete their own posts.
Veteran status is NOT a job - we have issued these privileges on the basis that these members are ones we can trust and rely upon, and it is intended to make their life easier.
This group will be the first place we look for gang leaders and new forum moderators. They will also be consulted on important issues, and help decide some things we do on the forums.
So congratulations to: Mother Theresa, Caitaiko, tommy vercetti guy, Slayer, biggamer132, Slavik Von Stockholm, Bryzed, Genocide, aemboy15, Oscar, crazychicken17, smallpancake and Chrisman.
If you want to be a Veteran, you simply have to be active on the forums for a few months, and if you have been a leading member of the community, contributed a lot, and not done anything too stupid, then we might make you a veteran when we do the next intake. There are certain criteria that have to be fulfiled before we can make anybody a veteran, so don't be disappointed if you aren't one straightaway. Gerard and Chris have the final say in any individual case.
We will add to this group in the near future, yet we don't expect to have to remove anybody unless they actually do something wrong.
Hope this gives our new and recent members something to look up to.

Will there be a list (like the Moderator List or the Staff List) concerning these veterans?

My real name is Gerard Boyers (see my sig and avatar), although online I've been going under the name "Xenon" for a few years.
I have been stealthy and hiding under my new name. Nothing to do with the member "Stealth".
Although I did put "formerly Xenon/Zino" in my sig until a week or two ago.

What if a Veteran member becomes inactive? Maybe they can get demoted?

So we've had to keep the Veteran criteria fairly loose, and we've decided that (for now), once a veteran, always a veteran. That is unless you do something bad like spam/hack/die.
