Taking a stroll through my old PMs...


Recommended Posts

Might be better than the archives. Eesh. 

Anyway, we're coming up on the 10 year anniversary of Jaycie asking me to be an admin. Ten whole years of my life sucked away by this thankless position. I actually think it might be a record...if you don't count JA. 

And I miss Pong, y'all. 

Oh and Seth has never once sent me anything I could let my 13 year-old read.

Ha. That's how Brando and I are but it's usually more of a post-mortem after the fact. Our conversations have typically been "I gave so-n-so a temp ban for that thread." "Yeah...I just perma

The only thing I got from being a mod was anxiety.

So what you’re saying is Twitch kills people, am I rite?

So what kinds of privileges do you get as a mod? Besides banning miscreants, that is! Is there an annual mod picnic?

Blame, shame, hate mail, advanced trolling, and a nifty tag for your profile.

I was mod for the Lyceum and then the Religion forum. I looked at my PMs and saw Destiny making sure I wasn’t insane for volunteering to run Religion. Then 9 years ago I became an admin with Cerina.

I also have a PM where Seth told me that the admin team hated me and I would never be a mod here. :(

Shows what he knows! 

At the time it was true? They were a bunch of jerks! If it makes you feel better when I became a mod I immediately saw the Olympus thread where Mandard said “Tank? Really? That’s where we are? I would have liked to talk about this.”

If anything I am at least consistent.

Pretty certain 99.9% of my private messages I ever sent were; “Hey, that person is messing with you so are you cool just joking or what?” “Hey, how bad did I screw up here?” “Fine, whatever you want.” “Is it possible for you to give me temp access to the video games forum so I can mod the Xi thread without needing admin help?”

The latter was never approved for whatever reason and as such Six had to mod that thread whenever I had to squeeze more data into it. lol Xi, btw, broke Nightly royally. I think it was JA that just threw his hands in the air over it and said, “Okay, Torch… you just talk to the software developers. Here’s their email.”

Afterthoughts:

For all the flack Six and I got for “just making decisions” “mall copping the Cantina” etc, no one really knows just how many messages I and likely we sent out inquiring prior to doing anything. eg. The entire Not Person trolling game easily had fifteen messages sent over it to determine where people’s skin thickness was about it. lol

Also “backs of hands” was always more about the basement dwelling filthy commentary rather than any argument over whether “backs of hands covering breasts” was porn, art, or just life. lol
