    Was anyone planning on introducing us to Astaran?
    Why doesn't he have any posts?
    Which admin position is he going to be taking over, or is he an addition to the admin team?

    Who told? [face_thinking]

    In any case, he's a brand new addition, brought down from on high (i.e. Wise sent him to us). He's going to be a "Forum Consultant". In case you're wondering, we don't really know what exactly a "Forum Consultant" does either.

    Let the speculation begin!

    I'm willing to bet it was this guy.

    So I'm guessing that this person is supposed to be the pipeline between the JC staff and TFN Core staff? Was there any discussions with the Head Admin regarding setting up boundaries or was it literally dropped in everyone's lap? Cause I don't think I need to push too much to get people to remember what happened last time everything was assumed.

    Forum Consultant. A dubious combination of words. Perhaps he will convey Mr. Wise's will to us, a la' the Mouth of Sauron?

    A forum consultant who is (I suspect) unfamiliar with the forum in question? How does that work?

    I find it disturbing that in the newest 100 users list, there's several names ending with 'moderator' and several plays on current moderators names.

    Your guess is as good as ours.

    Hehe, well, I guess we'll all be finding out pretty soon.

    Do a user search using 'Chyren' and various wildcard combinations, and you will be astounded as to the pathetic-ness that is rampant across the internet.

    I like the Mouth of Sauron theory, 'cept to be the Mouth of Sauron he would actually have to say something.

    I think he's going to PM Sape with his intentions (well, after he's made 20 posts - hoho).


    But yeah, we're in the dark just as much as you are.

    From the looks of it, he's just here to look at some of the board features.

    But hey, if everyone wants to get hysterical, by all means go ahead. :p

    hahahahahahaha.

    Yay!

    Well this is rather interesting. But we'll see. Be patient and all that crap. Blah blah blah.

    Even if they do change the look of the boards, it's not the end of the world. There will still be the same people here, the same discussions.

    Getting back to all the new usernames, It's very odd to have so many play on names and also "moderator" in their username. I thought nobody's allowed to have anything like that in their name.

    Anyways about this forum consultant, sounds like interesting news? I'm stumped on this one as well unfortunately.

    If I change my name to something star-trek-ish, do I get to be a Forum Consutant?

    They still might be doing that anyway?

    No one has suggested this, it's pure speculation.

    How foolish, Wise knows this is a message board and not a fortune 500 company, right?

    And you'd be correct. What we can see, that you can't, is that all of those usernames are already banned.

    Oh my god, a Wise reinforcement. Why the hell can't this guy simply let it go?

    I don't like the sound of "Forum Consultant".
