Well said, Gunny.
And to all those who have gone before...
You guys are acting like it was DG's death.
Good Job Gunny.
I know how DG can stick around with all the newbies. He gets to kill them all.
Oldbies get killed off as well, MM.
It's fun to get killed, in a twisted kind of way.
Thank you Gunny, that was great.
Wow, Gunny! That was truly touching!
It was truly a masterpiece.
Can you feel the love in the room?
*sniffle* I feel it! I...*sob*...feel it!
Oh noes, did I miss it?
Miss what? Burying teh mole?
No, the love in the room.
I think that the love is over. [Edit]
Edit: Gangrenous, you know that posting content of PMs isn't allowed (even if it's reworded) and I don't like to discuss this in public until I've made a decision.
It's ok, I can understand that it's not easy for you, but we should continue in PM now.
What am I missing here?
I don't know, but it was probably teh mole.
Teh-Mole must have been trying to tell us something.
It started as a joke on the other page, but then I spoke with various mods about it and in the end I decided to close this game for real.
The reason is simple, WNU is for welcoming people, helping them with every question they have and maybe a bit chatting, so they have an easier start when they look into the other boards. A game isn't really necessary for this purpose.
In addition we have too many VIPs (game hosts and game winners) around as well. The older ones will remember that we had this case a few years ago and at that time it was decided to reduce the amount VIPs. IIRC that was the reason why the former coordinator of adoptions lost his colors. The reason for this decision at that time was that (new) user should recognise mods faster and don't mistake a host or winner as a mod.
Of course I've spoken to Gangrenous to get his feedback as well. He didn't like this idea and brought up some reasons why it should stay, but none of them was could overrule the main reasons I mentioned above.
Since he loved this game, I offered him to restart at another board, but he refused, since he thinks that it belongs to WNU. It's his decision and I think we should respect this.
I know some of you might be sad, but I hope you all understand the reasons. If you want to say anything, you're welcome to use [link=http://boards.theforce.net/welcome_new_users/b10181/29246636/p1/?78]this thread[/link].
This game ends now!
So there's one thing left I can do now... I'll give Gangrenous colors for a week as a big 'thank you' for all the work he put into this game!
Thanks for you all playing this game!
Special thanks go to Gangrenous, the former of host of Teh Mole!
You've done a great work!
It started as a joke and it ends as a joke.
April Fool! Or like we say in German: April, April!
When I had posted the post above, I thought it won't last more than a few hours and that one discovers it as an April Fools Day joke sooner than later, since this way of acting and sudden close is completely uncommon. Sorry to those who I have really upset.
So I think there's one more question left: When can I close this thread for really real? You know there won't be a new game without a new teh mole thread.
Edit: For the historian of us, here are the links to the threads involved: [link=http://boards.theforce.net/welcome_new_users/b10181/29246636/p5/?122]Feedback (WNU)[/link] and [link=http://boards.theforce.net/communications/b10006/29920582/p1/?22]BBTMGTWNU (Comms)[/link].
I knew that's what it would be, but I didn't wanna give hints, since watching everyone scream about was just too much fun!!
Good show, Skiara. Ultimate win!
You have my vote for a new thread.
That was Awesome Skiara.
I just wish I had figured it out sooner. It would have been a lot funnier for me.
Any way well done.
