    All mods have this power. In fact, it's a job requirement! :lol:

    Seriously, Shannon is right. They're new - see, they've still got the shine on them! - so they're gonna make a few mistakes, but they can learn on the job like we did. I remember more than one of you being pissed at me when I started as a mod - it forces you to look at things differently.

    OK, guys, let me let you in on a little news, for those of you not paying attention - the new mods were chosen by the existing ones. We picked the people we thought were best suited for the job, and Alex approved them. If you disagree, fine, but let's keep it civil, shall we?

    Thank you guys for the support of my LAST POST. Mike is right. Alex asked us to start coming up with names for new mods. From there, the mods did a poll based on our discussions & the top 5 candidates were picked.

    Hey, if the admin trusts us, why shouldn't the forum members? Do you guys really think we'd want to screw this place up? For many of us, we spend a lot of time here.

    Please re-read my last post & remember that the mods are here to make sure that this place stays within the standards that Chris set back when he started this years ago. Call it "Quality Control." Either way, we will continue to make this a place that you can all enjoy.

    Merry Xmas, blabbity blah.....now I got a plane to catch. I'm leaving Seattle's 18" of snow & heading for Houston for the week. Ahhhhh, warmer weather. ;)

    we started with MANY names, and by the time the smoke cleared, we had 5. many of you are qualified, and very important to the community at large, but we can't have more generals than soldiers. or, too many cooks in the kitchen. or, yadda yadda :D

    Well I noticed One, well at least One of the new ones joined like maybe a month or two before me and had about the same amount of post so, I figured I might Have had a shot :D

    But then again, the ones that did get the jobs are doing a damn god job of keeping the NSFW crap out of the site and getting rid on Spammers really quickly So its all god :D


    Maybe NEXT time there is a Mod position open I might get it ;)


    [action=twiztedchild]doubts it again :lol:[/action]

    Ah, yeah that might be it :lol: I have a few but they are complaining about how one of the threads was really nothing but a Neg Rep fest. :noplease:



    EDIT:

    Maybe we should take this some where else so the Mods don't get mad for us Derailing this thread? :shrug:

    This thread has been derailed so much that we might as well put it in Off Topic and start posting motivational posters.

    [action=ohio_eric]is kidding. Don't even think about posting that shit here. :squint:[/action]
