    [hl=black]***************WEEKLY NEWS FROM MOD SQUAD***************
    ***************
    WEEK ENDING 28 April 2002********************[/hl]

    [ul]
    [li]Discussed recent actions of PreacherBoy and other Mod-types, debating his punishment and who had the authority to punish staff members.[/li]

    [li]Discussed changing the board color scheme. [/li]

    [li]Kadue announced his plan to turn off polls in Literature until after AOTC is released. [/li]

    [li]Darth Dark Helmet announced that he was banning all of the Internet_Drama copycat names. And there was much rejoicing. [/li]

    [li]There was much discussion of the PSA, including the emergence of JCC type threads there, and the sudden fad of using Cat images. [/li]

    [li]Decided we probably don't need any more Mods at the moment.[/li]

    [li]Darth Ludicrous noticed that someone deleted his icon. Darth Ludicrous: ?Dude, where?s my icon?? Darth Dark Helmet: ?Your icon?s gone, dude.? [/li]

    [li]Discussed Defense Force?s, and the feasibility of moving them out of the RPG forum. [/li]

    [li]Discussed auto-prune in Community and other forums. [/li]

    [li]Discussed changing PSA policy so that only Mods can create ?Official? threads. Any threads created by regular users that were labeled official would be edited. [/li]

    [li]It was decided that all actions undertaken with a sock would be considered exactly as they would be if the person was using his normal user name. [/li]

    [li]Discussed several problem users, none of which were Obi Zahn Kenobi. [/li]

    [li]Realized that we haven't done a Mod Squad update in a while, and that we probably should do another soon [face_blush] [/li]

    [li]Battening down the hatches for AOTC...[/li]

    [li]And finally, in a truly disturbing surprise, a PM wrapped around a brick shattered the front window of the Modsquad Olive Oil Consortium. It would appear that, after his seeming demise, The_Modfather is indeed back...

    As for the I DEMAND MORE... VAGUE UPDATES. bit.

    Mentally append the word Maybe before reading each of the points in Vertical's update.

    It helps.

    "supposedly" works just as well.


    or, "we're just messing with your mind." at the end.




    ...and psychoanalysis reviews.

    Keep up the good work!

    Lay off eating the paste, though. We know it goes on.

    If DFs are going to leave the RPG forum, then where will they go?

    I cant talk for the EU forums, but I feel that DFs were bad for the CT and TPM forums.

    Possibly SW misc forum? But with social threads there, moving the DFs might just add up to too much socialising for that forum.

    Maybe a new DF board?

    I'm quite sure that farraday[/n] and Nate[/n] did half of this each and combined it together, then got Vertical to post it. Half of it is too funny and the other half plain serious. ;)

    Only God knows the truth, that I write most of your posts because you're all a) too lazy or b) too cowardly.

    I had nothing to do with this update.

    In fact, every funny comment was contributed by Darth Ludicrous.

    He's quite the comedian, PM him about his 'pull my finger' routine sometime.

    Priceless

    You left out that DDH missed banning the most direct I_D copycat, and that when I pointed that out, Gandolf very obligingly banned my entire IP instead of that one name. ;)

    :D

    And as far as the Defence Forces go, we're not totally sure where the others would go. I can tell you that they won't go back into CT, and probably not TPM. Maybe they won't move at all, the EUDF is the only one to bring up the issue so far. If they do move, maybe Miscellaneous.

    Well, Misc is the closest thing to a "Movies Community", so that would make sense.

    I didn't have time to read through all that, so can someone tell me if I get the general gist of it:

    PreacherBoy and other Mod-types changed the current board colour scheme, and then spanked Kadue and Darth Dark Helmet, who was is turn caught spanking the Internet_Drama copycat names. Everyone rejoiced at that and also at the Cat images that replaced Darth Ludicrous's icon, (for the better). Defense Forces were responsible for the auto-pruning in community, targeting all the 'Official Threads', with whom they have had a violent past. The Mods realised that they were slack in not doing the Mod Squad updates, so an olive-oil soaked Obi Zahn Kenobi was thrown through the front window.

    Yep. That's more or less what happened.

    Do you work for Reader's Digest?
