New year, new mods!

HalosGhost and slithery have kindly agreed to pick up mod duties: please make them feel welcome.

And, after a long tenure, fsckd is handing in the banhammer. Fsckd has been a significant contributor here (and in IRC) and we are all very grateful for the huge amount of work over the years. The Taco Lounge awaits!

Re: Staff changes

I expect extra guacamole and cheese with my tacos. May be some more habaneros while you're at it. Chop chop, hop to it lads.

But seriously, congrats!

Re: Staff changes

Hi All!

Just wanted to let you know that I have no significant plans to change the BBS as we know it. (Though, I am mulling over a FluxBB plugin similar to my apparently infamous hatroulette phrik game.) tongue

In the meantime, I'll probably start by just banning everyone; you know, just clean house a bit. smile

fsckd, Thank you for everything you've done and continue to do!

All the best

-HG

Congratulations to all involved, and please enjoy the tacos @fsckd (the best part of the forums are drool-inducing)!

Heck, I though @slithery was already a mod. sheesh!

How to post. A sincere effort to use modest and proper language and grammar is a sign of respect toward the community.

Don't forget to ban me! My forum title is a bit long and "Banned" would be quite a bit shorter. smile

Re: Staff changes

And HG gets the first ban!  Slithery, are you going to let him pull ahead like that?  Get to it!

Re: Staff changes

I tried to ban alad too since he asked, but I think allan broke the bbs because I just get an error; seems like a bannable offense, but I presume if I can't ban alad, I can't ban allan.

I almost forgot! I brought ?s for everyone!

FluxBB doesn't like the unicode taco, apparently. I'm sorry, I've failed you as I only brought tacos of the unicode variety today ):

All the best,

-HG

Kidding. I have no interest whatsoever in moderator or administrative duties. I'd much rather contribute in other ways.

All jokes aside, congrats HG and slithery! smile

Re: Staff changes

Wait...the regulations state that a mod must be able to deal fairly in tacos...
Can you...handle that?

Anyone who manages to ban Allan is immediately promoted to Arch Overlard, as is the way of our people.

Is that why Phrak isn't getting hacked anymore?
His hacker couldn't blackmail him for a lifetime supply of tacos?

Hmm? I was thinking that he was getting too fat, so he had to ditch this place as part of his exercise regimen!
