    Just want to congrat Santiak and thatangryviking for being promoted as Moderator. It's a trial run to see if your doing a good job. :)

    There is lot to do, probably starting with our forums policies and what not. If any one have some HTML skill, we are not only looking for support at the content level. I would say we are missing one tech moderator.

    Congrats you two; I'm sure you'll do great!
    Make sure we're not too rowdy now :)

    Ehm, I mean, thanks for the vote of confidence - as I mentioned, never done this before, but I hope I'll live up to your expectations. :)

    Aww, I missed all the action while I was at work. I'm sure santiak will do great, though.

    Congratulatios Santiak and thatangryviking!

    Anashel FYI: I am a software developer. I don't do much on the HTML side, but I have before. I certainly wouldn't call myself moderator-level, maybe just assistant level...

    this is kinda funny, didn't notice the change for myself, but I noticed it on Santiak and came in here to give him congrats...

    If you need an additional person, I've got plenty of free time and a fair mindset. I've never moderated a forum before, but im a security guard, so I can handle people.

    Congrats, guys!

    Of course, for a trial run, you really need something to actually do - we've generally been a little too civil for much moderation thus far. So, I propose a flamewar.

    Suggested topics:
    • Does prayer belong in schools of fish?
    • National Socialism as a motivating influence in modern runway fashion.
    • The rights and responsibilities of toddlers with respect to select-fire assault rifle ownership.
    • Obama's summer footwear choices, and their impact on foreign trade.
    Now, if everyone would just line up in an orderly fashion, pick a topic, and then take an hour to get good & drunk & angry, we can get this little formality out of the way.
    My HTML is pretty rusty at this point - I usually gravitate more towards back-end coding, but I'll lend a hand if no one more enthusiastic steps up.

    I would hope this doesn't turn into the sort of place where those skillsets have to overlap too much.

    Congratulations Santiak and thatangryviking (the autocorrect suggest me your name is actually Thanksgiving, should I hear him out ?)
    I will now take your measures to make your moderators dresses.Also , for the coffins ( Let's get real : moderators get slayed by troll's hordes every year ).

    Don't worry they will be lovely coffins !

    Congrats guys! Good luck :p I'll be around to offer any help in preparing forum rules too!

    No! It doesn't matter what the Constitunation says about freedom of religion, allowing fish to pray to their immortal malevolent diety will only result in GLOBAL WARMING.

    Gosh darn you're right! DAGON, the Deepest One, would never allow anything less to transpire. The Great Hunter of All Things also decreed that the Global Warming can only happen if the Vatican revokes half their worshipers from the Plane of Dreams, to loose the shackles off of a few unspeakable terrors.Then they would be Vaticant. Huehuehue. But we all know it's just code word for Left-wing Alien butt-probing! *wears tin foil*

    Nikel, don't be an oblivious incompetent and do some research! 5 seconds on google will show you that fish have no impact on global warming and that the abysmal state of the environment is a direct correlation with the lack of pirates in our day and age. If people like you didn't exist, the world would be a better, and less hot, place. Jeeze, get a life guy...

    As a side note - A gun for every toddler, and a toddler for every gun! Go TRA! (toddler riffle association).

    Also - 'grats amigos, on the promotion.

    You're one to talk. If you'd do some of this "research" of yours, you'd find hundreds of sites with evidence that global warming is part of a "reptilian"[*] plot to raise the sea level and occupy all the major coastal cities after FEMA and the Coast Guard sweep out any resistance. Are you trying to tell me that's not Dagon?

    More of your 'research'? That's crap. If that were true, Somalia should be keeping the entire eastern horn of Africa free from the effects of global warming. Have you ever been to eastern Africa? It's hot there!

    I don't think anyone's denying the wisdom of keeping our toddlers armed. The question is whether they should really be trusted with full-auto weaponry, or if those statist gun-grabbers are right in restricting them to semi-auto. Any more than that would be ridiculous, even for them - you can't expect a toddler to manage a bolt-action rifle.

    [*] 'Reptilian' is a misnomer - probably deliberate disinformation from filthy liberals - as they're actually deep ones.

    Are you daft?! You can't just call someone a bufoon, you buffoon! Let me spell this out for you, reaaaaaal simple.

    Fish + prayer = global warming.
    Pirates = fewer fishermen
    Ocean - fisherman = more fish.
    More fish = more prayer = global warming.

    Get real, Nikel and Bats. You're talking nonsense. Have you no faith in our great noodly lord in the sky? He has told us directly why global warming is happening, and it has nothing to do with fish. It's all pirate related activity, or rather, the lack thereof. It's obviously our punishment for turning against his chosen people. If you anti-religious hatemongers would open your hearts to be touched by HIS noodly appendage, you would see the truth. Instead you're too busy covering up your sins with falsehoods.

    And our toddlers should be allowed to carry any weapon they please! It their rights as 'merican citizens!
