Crazy mother of a change to moderators
« on: December 26, 2006, 02:20:24 pm »
Yep, we've flipped the lid, gone off our trolley and got ****ed up on eggnog.

All the forums moderators have now been made 'Global' Moderators. Little Billy here has come to ask some frequently asked questions that some of you may ask.


Little Billy says:
What does this mean, Administrator Ru?


Well Billy, it's quite simple. What this means is that if there is a problem of any magnitude in any section of the forum - whether someone spamming links to wax or insulting harmonicas -, any of our current moderators can deal with it. This leaves the admins with the basic duties of keeping this place running and issueing out bans.



Little Billy says:
Isn't that just a little crazy though, Administrator Ru? I mean, Gram moderating 'everywhere'? Outcast too? They'll go power mad!

Ha ha ha ha, yes,
you're quite possibly right there Billy. Which is why we admins will come crashing down on any of them mother****ers the second they step out of line like a a freakin' jet powered anvil!



Little Billy says:
Phew! glad to know we'll be safe from any suspected mad men having far too much power than anyone should have, and now we're even better protected from any potential illegal activities. Can these global moderators do anything else though Administrator Ru?

As a matter of fact Billy, yes.
Yes they can. They can now modify peoples' avatars and signitures, as a lot of people don't like to follow the rules on them.


Little Billy says:
But won't someone like, oh I don't know, Demonic, just replace my avatar with a picture of Hitman's mum and my signiture with an embarassing Linkin' Park design? I feel scared, Administrator Ru.

Oh thats alright Billy.
You see, ever since we upgraded to these new fancy forums, we can now track every single change a moderator makes to anything at all. So they know that they can't do anything bad, because we'll be watching!


Little Billy says:
I feel safe in your wonderful huge arms, Adminstrator Ru.

And you feel
all warm and snuggly in them, Billy. As do all of you. Merry Christmas, and happy not-spamming!

Even though this is the case now, most moderators will probably stick to their normal sections and only step into others when there's a problem that needs attention.  I think that Ru, myself, and most other forum members would prefer it that way.  This is why the homepage of the forums still shows each moderator in his own section.

I guess the change works.  We were just flooded with spam by our friend Terrordog and (thanks to  's diligence) only three of you noticed.

Time for a self-congratulating pat on the back...

Raped. Raped of my ideas like a 13 year old little girl by several massive 40 year old penises.

Geee. I wish I could come up with ideas like you.

He's been lurking the whole time. Who'd of thought?

But yeah...'your' idea was more admins. Which gave me the idea for global moderators. Thanks for that by the way....it's good to share suggestions and ideas.

Habits are not easy to break. I wouldn't of even gotten on the forums today if someone hadn't messaged me requesting a bug fix for SimpleDemo

No worries, its typical for the smaller guy to get his ideas taken from him so someone else can get the credit. Thats what separates us from the monkeys. Except monkeys don't kill each other in their sleep.
