    It's not our fault. We told them, but nobody listens to us anymore :(

    If we wanted titles, we would me making bad icons and kissing bum in the Fanforces, where they give a title away for anything.

    Let's be honest here... If I could have had a title of my own choice, then I might have thought "Hmmm, the freebies this position offer makes me want to outstay my welcome!"

    But instead we had "AC Member" title which just cries out: "I am NERD. Hear me roar."

    And that is no reason for anyone to hang around and get moaned at for. :)

    A penitent man is humble before Kimball Kinnison.

    A penitent man kneels before God.

    yay, I'm naked again! Thanks. Again, I didn't notice until I saw this thread :p

    oh and UKS, I have the wrong FanForce then. I can't possibly think of something to do to get a title :(


    now, back to the FGs ;)

    I'm just excited over how AYBABTU's and my diabolical plan to take over the JC through the AC has finally come to fruition.

    As I said all along, my support for the AC was simply in leiu of any other way for those other than mods to have some say in policy decisions. I also stated I would support disbanding the AC given any step forward that might increase the participation of regular members. I have hope (though not much) that this will be a step of progress and also that the divisiveness created by a small few over the AC (mainly mods and ex-mods that didn't seem to remember what it was like to be a regular member) can be left behind for good (also doubtful).

    Isn't it a bit like a new computer. We got it out of the package, plucked everything in, but didn't switch it on yet?

    Can I be on the JC Decisions Panel to discuss the Focus Group, who is discussing the Advisory Council, who discusses the Modsquad; when it is created in 2 months?

    I've just posted an MS thread for Focus Group proposals and discussion. I've emphasized the need and goal for this to be a relatively open process that should include a variety of members.

    More details/stuff to follow.

    Yes, they are, but many of the details will only be worked out in practice. This covers such things as the actual operation of the FG, the selection of topic (since not every proposal would necessarily result in a FG), or similar matters.

    What we have now is a framework. We will build onto it as we go.

    Oh....My.....God....

    Smith will suffice.

    (I just introduced my girlfriend to The Matrix last night.)

    Well, from what I hear, the Lit forum is having a focus group right now, and one about the Canon War is getting ready to start as soon as EV and DLM get things straitened out...

    In what form will the focus group updates be posted here in Comms? As a thread specifically for them, in the MS updates, or has nothing been decided yet?

    Is there some kind of an org chart to show how all this works?? Seriously, I'm avoiding this forum (not that I'm missing much) because it's turned into nothing but a headache in keeping track of who's doing what now and which group is getting blamed for corrupting the forums and so on.

    You know, you should really take ibuprofen with milk or food. Otherwise, it can damage the lining of your stomach and cause ulcers.

    Was there already a discussion that decided weather or not everyone would be able to read the FG threads as they develop? On the one hand, I'd love to read them, but on the other, I can certainly see the need for it to remain private and anonymous.
