    With Imperial_Hammer's imminent departure ( :_|) the RPF mod team has been working hard behind the scenes to find someone to fill his considerably large shoes. After much discussion, it has been decided that our new moderator will be the one and only Peng!

    Peng has been a rock in our forums for years now. His integrity, dedication, energy and enthusiasm are great assets to our community and have never flagged in all the time he has been here. He's been a consistent innovator, with plenty of flexibility and creativity to try new things, and I have no doubt that this will serve him well as the newest addition to the RPF Team. I think we're going to accomplish great things together. :D

    A big round of congratulations to Peng! =D=

    Ahh...it's relieving to be able to discuss this at long last!

    After nearly two weeks of holding my breath, I'm here at long last! Thank you, one and all, for your kind words. I'm overjoyed tonight - the news came through recently but secrecy had to be kept until everything was completely official! Thank you all so much, again!

    A huge thank-you must be extended towards Xani, but also Impy, whose guidance and model I hope to follow in the future. I might not be Imperial_Hammer 2.0, but I'll do my best to live up to his position.

    Please do not think of this as a replacement but rather the first in a line of succession, hopefully long and proud and fruitful. I will be the best I can be, and I will be the best I can be with your help. Thank you guys so much! We will miss Impy but he'll always be around...I guarantee his presence will never leave the RPF.

    I am not, nor will I ever be, Impy 2.0. I'll be me and myself always. I love the RPF and I love our games, our population and our unique dynamic...

    ...I wouldn't change it for the world.

    I have big ideas, if big they can be called, and I intend to implement a few of them in my turn as RPF Moderator. I'm extremely happy to fill this position, with much help from Xany and Impy, and I'm extremely excited to get started.

    This isn't a goodbye to Impy, but a hello to me. I hope you're as excited and eager as I am!

    Thank you so much!

    You'll do fine Peng. You're a great pick and I am confident you and Xan will keep the place in good hands.

    If you ever need any advice, you know my IM addresses. :)

    Congrats again. Coming up on 5 years coming now as an RPF regular. I think you've put in your time. You've certainly outlasted a majority of your cohort, that is for certain. And you've never gave up. I remember your Music RPG, wasn't that your first? I still say it was a good idea... and I still maintain it was a shame it didn't go anywhere! Maybe you can revisit that someday, knowing now what you didn't know then. :D

    I'm certain you'll find the exercise as pleasurable as I have, and that you'll bring all sorts of new and interesting ideas to the RPF's communal table. :)

    Best of luck boss!

    :eek: *blinks a few times* [face_hypnotized]

    This completely blindsided me, in all honesty. This whole business of no more imp and such.... odd stuff to consider. However, it's the way of things, and they couldn't have picked anyone better to fill the vacant slot. Congrats peng. :)

    Better you than me. :p

    Hammer said it straightforwardly and also very well, Peng: you certainly have outlasted many people here. You'll be great up in that header my friend, but more importantly around the forums, too. Keep being you.

    Congrats and my the penguins bless you.

    Though I sadly just don't have the time to dedicate to this place these days, I must stop by to offer my congratulations to Penguinator-176. A finer choice, I cannot think of.

    Enjoy your retirement, Imperial_Hammer.

    Bump for managerial justice!

    That's right, Peng has survived his three-month trial-by-fire and is now a full Manager. Now you can hassle him if you want threads moved, posts deleted or banners changed. You might even see him doing fancy things with HTML. :D :D

    Congrats Pengster! =D=

    Grimby messaged me to say that when he tried to make my congrats thread, he couldn't. He was trying for the last forty minutes.

    For the last forty minutes or so I'd been trying to post a big picture in here.

    I terminated the JC.

    *thumbs up*

    :D

    ...You're telling me you found the "Destroy the Forums" button?

    And then you actually pressed it????

    His CPU is a neural net processor. A learning computer.

    He had to push it to see what would happen. Let's just hope he already knows what the "delete forum" button would do....

    Probably turns those fake-Mod cheques we get into real money, which is why the button is labelled in a way to prevent use. :p
