After reviewing their histories, I have determined that Spaz and THE_HONDA_CG2 are going to be the first half of my new moderation team. The remaining two will be announced at a later date.

Please welcome and congratulate these two, and know that they have my complete trust in their abilities. happy.gif

Thanks everyone, I appreciate the votes of confidence and well wishes. I don't plan to disappoint, though I feel the board's gotten pretty good at self-moderating in the past 6 months and as such things shouldn't be too difficult. smile.gif

Alastair is the latest recruit to my sleek, sexy new mod team. I could only guess that he'll primarily hang out in the music section.

One more to determine. I'm balancing a TON of recent requests, so please bear with me. It could be a while before I make this tough decision.

APX is a wild card and is prone to surprising posts, but I have entrusted him with responsibility, and hope he understands the weight such trust carries.

Don't fail me, my faithful Lieutenants. My promise to deliver swift action to abusers is most definitely still intact.

So it's been a few days since I was promoted, but I needed some time to get my thoughts together to address this formally here. I don't want to be all "INTERNET SRS BZNISS" but still.

Having been a part of this place for just exactly 3 years, 6 months and 9.11 days, I have occasionally toyed with the idea of serving it as a moderator, but never went far enough to actually ask because for a long time this place has seemed too inactive for the slew of moderators we once had. I believe this will change, and so I took the opportunity I was given this April and submitted an application.

I do take this position seriously, and want to put out there that blatant violations of rules will not be allowed as they have in the past. I will not be so lenient. That does not mean I am or will be biased in any situation(s), it simply means I will take proper action to prevent the disrespect some members direct at others from occuring as often as it has. Hopefully the "permanent" system we now have for warns will be enough to discourage this behaivor, but we will see. Of course I don't want these issues to happen to begin with, but I feel I should say this anyway.

I didn't want to make this such an off-putting introduction, but there isn't much more I can say about this position and how it relates to me. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at any time. Just know that I will be very thorough (for the time being, I am checking every post to come through every forum) and very fair. I will almost always discuss issues with the other moderators/administrators on staff, so you can rest assured that each action taken is indeed an action from THE MODERATION TEAM, and not a rogue, biased, single-person-made action as has happened in the past.

Happily serving you,

I've got a question, rookie.

Have you asked any of the old guard why we don't carry out member terminations in the god, old-fashioned 'mod justice' manner?

You know what I'm talking about:
http://idforums.net/index.php?showuser=17340

Note the user title and signature. There should be no questioning when justice is delivered.

I should also note, if these forums ever pick up steam, I'd happily serve as a member of the team and delivering the same level of courtesy and professionalism that is expected of moderators. It's something I've been wanting to do since 2005, no lie. But first I'd rather prove my longevity. Drifter's going nowhere this time, baby. :3

Sukeban's story is actually pretty unique. It is one that is before my time, yet one I cannot get a clear understanding of by reading old threads. It's blurry. I probably had to be there.

I think your real question was more like do I know why we do not clearly state on a member's profile when they are banned? I'm not sure, could you explain further?

Basically, she decides to fake commit suicide and her internet bf plays along. A few other members including myself decide to investigate. Some of us feel really awful, myself included, because her suicide came after the "IDW Spartan" Mass banning April Fools Prank. Dave Rodgers says its false, I ignorantly say its not. I investigate. She comes back a few days later like, "LOL GUIZ I R NOT DED". I look like a tool. She has lulz. Dave Rodgers makes a parody to American Pie by Don McLeod... I mean Don McLean. She rages then decides to leave the community by having Perry ban her account permanently under the notion she will not come back and make another account (iirc).

Hope that clarifies some of it.

Well, that explains some of that mysterious situation. It looks like the forums had a lot of drama back in the day, and that sounds like some dark history that didn't have any place being mentioned here. So now I must ask. Demon Boost, why did you bring something like that up? Care to clarify how this is pertinent to the topic at hand?

He is insinuating she has returned to the boards. But, in reality he has his facts screwed up.

EDIT: Lemme rephrase that. He is insinuating she has returned to the boards, whilst he may be correct, I think the people he may claim are her and some of the facts he brings to the table are not correct in the sense of relating to her.

EDIT 2: Maybe not...

I've re-read the April Fool's thread, it makes more sense now. I'd rather not go further into this, I don't see it going anywhere good.
