    *sigh*

    Sad but not altogether unexpected.

    I really don't understand it sometimes. Comms is just loaded with complaints against the mods from users who feel alienated, and now when a Mod tries to make a HUGE step in the right direction (By letting the users influence who gets moved into a power position) it gets shot down.

    *sigh*

    Ah well

    I don't see why they're so affraid to try the new way. :confused:

    Just put the new mod on a probationary period and see how they go. ;)

    If they're not quite up to it :( then try someone else. :D

    Lets be honest, [face_devil] it's not an easy job,often getting abused, and not all people will want it even if offered. [face_shocked]

    We also need someone who is going to be online when the other Mods are getting all of their beauty sleep. [face_mischief]
    and lets face it, thats a hell of alot of sleep needed. :p

    Or, preferably and most likely, both.

    So Gandy (what a nick :p ), any word on the shortlist of names?

    Gay is not to be used as a synonym for bad on these boards. Don?t use it in the future.

    If I could retroactively strangle whoever it was that first called me Gandy, I would.

    Be careful in what you wish for Mas ;) After all, [face_mischief] you could be the next Mod :p

    On a related note, Oakessteves_cat is a leading contender for the position of moderator in the Phantom Menace forum, with a sizable fraction of the vote. I?m not sure whether to be more worried or amused.

    I really like the idea of the "citizens" taking part by way of a vote to see who governs them...
