    Weekly News From the Mod Squad



    • Kyle Katarn was un-banned. Welcome back, Kyle :) .


    • Canon was discussed. A team of negotiators, including Commander Antilles, Oakessteve, DarthSapient and Gandolf the Grey were able to hammer out some basic agreements as to what was canon. Horses, ducks, dogs, pandas, trees, and cannons (but only laser cannons and ion cannons) are all canon. It was furthermore agreed to that while cats should by all rights be canon, they are not.


    • PreacherBoy was discussed, in great detail. We are treating this situation with the utmost of seriousness, and have banned PreacherBoy. We are currently discussing the length of his ban, and are considering all of our options. At this point, the length of PreacherBoy?s ban has not yet been decided.


    • Various troll warnings posted.


    • There was discussion on how to keep interested in the day-to-day chore of answering complaints, filling out paperwork, and getting PM?s that basically say ?You know I respect you and all, but I think that a drunken and obsessive-compulsive chimpanzee could do a better job than you.? It turns out that many Mods are Harry Potter fans.


    • Defense Forces were discussed. We?re still hammering out details about what exactly we?re doing with them. We want to move them, and we want to minimize the amount of people negatively affected by this move


    • The PSA admin list was updated. Currently, Padme Bra, Lobot Omy, Mar17swgirl, DarthSapient, Darth Dark Helmet, Lord Bane, Commander Antilles. AlphaWolf, jasman, Gandolf the Grey, Vertical, Kadue, Talon Squad Leader, Missninfan are the official PSA Mods.


    • Discussed and implemented a reordering of the forums. Communications is now under the Administration category, though it?s still open to the general public. More details about the changes to the forum can be found here.


    • Vertical wondered just exactly when certain people were promoted to Mod (he certainly didn?t promote them). It turned out that Mr. P can travel though time ? he won?t be promoted until May 12, 2002. Everyone remember to congratulate him on that day. Darth Dark Helmet was seen to be muttering about ?causality loops? and 11th dimensional quantum physics. The rest of us are also confused. Also,

    Nice icon.

    Do you like your clone, shaken or stirred?

    "Also, Vertical petitioned for a new icon for his own personal use, claiming that it had a hidden Attack of the Clones theme to it (squint at it from across the room)."

    Well, if that's true, wouldn't that make it a spoiler? ;)

    Amazing.

    So many, yet so few. I haven't seen AlphaWolf in there in ages, and I've NEVER seen TSL post.

    EDIT: Same for Lord Bane. Missy used to be in there a lot, but not anymore.

    Oh they're there. I've seen them at in an almost Sniper like capacity. Taking out terribly redundent threads in one shot.

    "* Kyle Katarn was un-banned. Welcome back, Kyle [happy.gif] ."

    Yay!

    We both got pretty stiff sentences...

    Also, I see you specifically mentioned the problem users.

    Dangit! Why wasn't I in them?

    ;)

    Good update.

    The PSA boards are bad now...

    I don't even want to think they are going to be like around May 16. :eek:

    *shudders*

    Cute icon BTW. :)

    Cats aren't canon? :eek:

    I demand to hear the reasoning behind this. :p :)

    I don't understand the deal with Mr. P. Can someone explain that to me in English? :p

    Things have only begun in terms of the madness. Once ATOC opens... hello, fun :D.

    Mr. P claimed that he was promoted May 12, 2002. That's in the future. Apparently, he owns a nifty time machine and uses it often. ;)



    ...and a mango.

    Yes, though when AOTC opens, the fun will stop, no doubt.

    Bib Fortuna, Twilek just PM'd me and tried to explain that cats are in fact canon.

    It seems that on the EU world of Craptonia cats are quite abundant. In fact, many are bounty hunters and smugglers who helped procure the Death Star plans for the Rebel Alliance, hung out in the Mos Eisley cantina, hung out in Jabba's palace, narrowly escaped Jabba's sail barge, and were finally found to be "somewhat indigestible" by the Sarlaac. Naturally, many went on to work for the Emperor and subsequently train at the Jedi praxeum on Wayland.

    Bib just wanted to be sure that you all understand "how it all fits together."

    AYBABTU?

    OK, Clarification time: Cats should be in cannons, which should then be fired. ;)

    Love the icon, by the way.

    Jesus Christ, is PSA such a whirl of activity?

    Thanks for the updates.

    Now all we need is one from the Advisory Council. Slackers. :p ;)

    Speaking of Mod coverage, we really need one badly in the Music forum. I know it's not crammed and crowded and busy but seriously... as it was when the mp3s were released, and then again when the CD was released... once AOTC is released and more people buy the CD and see the music, there will be a need for a mod who spends TIME there and keeps on top of things.

    The current mod(s) responsible seem to have their hands full in other forums and don't come by very often.

    Mr. P's going to be promoted in 5 days! //starts countdown// ;) [face_mischief]

    Seriously, is that a Snowboards bug or what?
