The best thing is that now we can get insta-banned for calling him campmom! :dance:

Think I'll be banned before you somehow...


:conspiracy:

You didn't call him Campmom, you'll be fine!


That's true, I've never called him anything. Shame the reverse cannot be said to be true.

Still, I'm sure someone who has previously called me a cunt and mentally ill on multiple occasions will be scrupulously fair when moderating my posts, and that I have absolutely nothing to worry about.

Perhaps you have too much to worry about. I go the Bob Marley route when I can. Worry never changes anything.

You're not really a Moderator until you've either :-

A/ Accidentally edited someone else's post when you meant to quote it.
B/ Permanently banned someone instead of suspending them.
C/ Deleted a report instead of closing it
D/ Merged a thread into the wrong place and then had to individually and painstakingly merge individual posts elsewhere
E/ Had a whiny Feedback thread started about how biased/incompetent/vindictive you are
F/ All of the above.


Congratulations to the 4 Noobs. Very good choices all ! I hope that you enjoy the experience.

:( That means I was never really a moderator.



Congrats to the new moderators. I hope you manage better than I did. :cheers:

Of course he will - that's the entire point isn't it? That moderators bring to bear the moderation they don't necessarily always have to show as normal members when dealing with antagonistic folk in the fora.

Of course, there being a group of moderators, each individual's actions are not isolated, but instead part of a collective discussion and agreement, so that any moderation given out is the sum of balanced discussion and reflection, and the decisions of adults taken together.

I'd also say that suggestions that future moderation will be unfair based on antiquated dealings is absolute fucknutted crackpottery - but this probably isn't the thread to engage in well poisoning when it's clearly a thread meant to congratulate the new moderators and that such concerns might be better expressed in their own special thread in the Tech Forum - wouldn't you agree?
