    MS is gearing up for next week when as many as 14 mods and admins will be away from the boards enjoying Celebration V (and a couple who just happen to be doing something else that week - what were they thinking???). Check the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/communications/b10006/28909104/p1/?0]Active Moderators Temporarily Away[/link] thread for the full list.

    A few new banners went up this week, most notably the current main banner featuring [link=http://boards.theforce.net/fanforce_star_wars_celebration_v/b10611/31134382/p1/?20]Joe Hogan's amazing artwork[/link] created exclusively for TFN and the Jedi Council Forums. [link=http://boards.theforce.net/live_action_clone_wars_classics/b10467/p1]LACWAC[/link] is also enjoying a new banner featuring Clone Wars Season 3.

    Problem users were discussed. You know who you are...

    Please, make a screenshot of the first post and the title of the "Active Moderators Temporarily Away"-Thread, when there are more than 10 mods listed (and best when all 14 mods are listed). I would love to see this after I'm back! :D

    That falls on the shoulders of the lazy mods of that forum to actually post something in MS to be announced in the update. So, take it up with them.

    I used to have something put in pretty much every MSU/ATB, but nobody ever seemed to notice or care, so I haven't done it much in a while.

    If you too are one of the lucky ones attending CV, put on a new CV icon to let your friends know that you're going (and to make them jealous).

    You get colors for volunteering but chances are you won't be using the Jcc so it won't be all that cool to have.

    But the worse I guess is being a mod and loosing out on vacation pay while on celebration V.

    You get colors when you get back from Celebration, not during Celebration. ;)
