More of these guys? ;/

I'm joking! Good luck guys!


Question though, what motivates you to do this? When i think how painful it must be to scour through every thread and read all the... erm content... it would drive me crazy, i think. Bravo to you guys for taking on the task!

Interesting question. I know for me, it was about making a difference. I saw things that I didn't agree with, but also wanted to be a hand for those who needed one. Sure, no one's perfect and every Mod has stumbled a time or two, but I think we've got a solid crew ready to help, and mod, when/where they can.

I do think it's getting better. I have seen you issuing warnings on threads when things get heated before it gets out of hand. I think it's a pretty positive thing to do. There is a habit to have a back and forth (maybe cause of that blue notice) and it helps for someone to go in and say it's time to stop it because it turns into a stubburness contest and no one wants to "lose". Sometimes, i wonder if the blue notice does more harm than good. Also, dunno if it's the right place to say it, but the site changes have been positive as well. So, applause to you lot!

We appreciate it. And make sure you give a shout to Talon, Trucks, and Machina. The big Administrative changes rest with them!

I could go on and on about the joys I get from helping people and making a difference and blah blah, but honestly... it's all about the power!

But nah, basically it's those things I mentioned, being able to contribute and push for change to make the forums a better place, sure it can be a pain in the arse most some times, but hey, it's rather satisfying to be honest.

I actually just put my application in on a whim, could have probably put more effort into it. - But... Why not?
Getting involved in communities is a really good thing, helping others is also a good thing, life still comes first before being a moderator anyway... So if you have free time, it's good to put it towards something constructive and/or beneficial.

The picks of the mod team are surprising as usual.

On the plus side, now it might be allowed to express the opinion that the thought of having sex with a transsexual person is disgusting.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

In at least one case this time, yes.
