    Is it over? Should posters be re-attaching their icons/fixing our sigs/moving towards healing/whathaveyou? :confused:

    Thank you for the update. This has been a very emotional week, but we must move on. Yes, users need to start replacing icons and sigs. The event is over, and there is nothing that can be done now to change the actions of this week and the past.

    It's good to hear that we are moving on. Things are already reverting back to their normal craziness.

    [face_shocked] I did not realize that because of the recent incidents surrounding the boards over the past few days that that many Moderators, Managers, & Administrators for both sides had stepped down or been demoted. That truely sadened me to see... :_|

    Thanks J-M-T for that update! :D

    If I didn't know better, I would say that I detect a hint of sarcasm in your post, Strid. ;)

    Honestly guys, I am not trying to insult your intellegence by restating the obvious. My whole point was just to list who is gone and how we are covering until we get replacements. We haven't really talked about much else in the MS expect 'you know what' so there wasn't much else to say. Forgive the redudancy. [face_blush]

    But thanks for the kind words everyone. Isn't it just be my luck to have signed up to do the MS update this week? :eek:

    Could be worse. They could have sounded the fire alarm while you were in the shower.

    Well you certainly didn't have much of import to report.


    I'm disappointed that more mods haven't stepped down thus requiring my upcoming coop to be bloody and painful rather then bloodless and painful.


    I would also ask if members have been saying no to the offer to become mods in light of new circumstances.

    The owners are always the head admin and what they say go. The JC head admin is just someone filling in for them, but if an owner wishes to terminate the head admin position then it will be done.

    Okay, i take it he is now managing his two sites along with the forums instead of appointing a head Admin for the forums?
