Try to make a more descriptive thread title next time.
I don't think TMod was ever designed to pick anyone up, and if it was ever allowed to it was a mistake. The logic is that Trial Mods can be potentially abusive and picking people up has a lot of potential for abuse. We don't want players getting scared away. If someone as a Trial Mod proves they are not abusive they will be promoted later on at which point they may have the ability to pick people up.
