Oooh! Then I must challenge my moderations in the thread I link below, and since no one has ever responded to a query from the "contact link", you get it here! Please look at my warnings in this thread and tell me where exactly I insulted the person and not his ideas. This is a perfect example of why I'm pissed in general.

You used the word "bleat" offensively when you're wearing a goat avatar.

Deadly sin man.

If you're talking about 8chan, there is a thread [http://www.8ch.net/gamergatehq/res/152715.html]. Grab your popcorn.

Also, I would be a bad guest if I showed up empty-handed...

Congratulations to Lilani.

This shit right here in this thread is why I can't stand to be around the forums any more.

You'd think these people have something better to do.

I really wonder why they obsess over these forums so much. It's really bizarre.

EDIT: Looking through the thread it appears some people actually know what's up, so that's nice.

If only I could find that video of the Space Marine moderator crushing all the ork posters. Blah!

This is TimeLord's ban hammer of choice.

Thanks for reminding me to add that to my forum weapon drawer though. Always a potent tool.

If I remember correctly, didn't Luke want to join Rebels and fight the Empire?
As a generic soldier, not as the whole dang saviour. (Because he thought Biggs would be that)

That thread is just too funny. And now that it's posted here the LIDF will consume it like hotcakes!

I wish more people liked pony there. But I guess they're all just split between the original and ponychan. (and yet every week! [http://octabooru.net])
I like posting on /pol/, /n/, /scurv/ (speaking intentionally broken engrish amusingly helps me learn better normal english), the retro game boards like /svidya/, /fluffy/, /bane/, and /monster/

Actually, I think he wanted to join the Empire, what with his talk of leaving Tattooine and enrolling at the Academy. But the whole family being murdered kinda put a damper on that.

Our infiltration of the moderation has been detected, oh well. If they cut off one head, two more shall take its place. Hail Hydra!

In all seriousness I'm not surprised. When I read the title of the thread I thought some of the Gamergaters would be annoyed about this and lo and behold, they are.

I'm too busy character trolling threads on /pol/ with JIDF rhetoric.

It's generally understood that most of the people posting in Escapist threads on 8chan are regular users here.

Somebody in the thread managed to use 'problematic' without tempting me to give them the Nelson Muntz treatment. That is top-class posting in its own right.

I have to admit, I'm vigorously amused by how some people are fussing over an 8chan thread here. I guess that thread's OP was right about shills in there.

I go in the other direction. I have been so used to forums before the entire GG explosion, that now I have a hard time coming back to them because chans are so much faster. And there are enough mostly-dead-chans around that you could always move a discussion to a dead one and take it over until it was finished. (back when /pol/ was called /n/ I used to do that a lot. Thread would begin saging within 10-15 minutes, so a big discussion moves into krautchan or hispachan and takes over their /int/ board for the rest of the day.)
I mostly wheel by escapist for the podcasts and yahtzee. Especially on train rides.

Wait a minute...

Wasn't Lilani already a moderator way back when, and then quit to spend more time in the real world?

Am I remember this right? I've hit my head a few times.

In either case, congratulations!
Quite a few mods have done that, but the one you're thinking of is probably Aylaine.

Firstly, congratulations (I know I posted in the Elfgore thread already but keep reading).

And secondly, I forgot to mention that you two now need to pick ban weapons. Weapons yielded by previous mods include Labyrinth's ban mop [http://s149.photobucket.com/user/Labyrinth_11/media/banmopninja2.png.html], Ultrajoe's Dominator[footnote]The Dominator has no image as it is too powerful for its visual appearance to be represented in picture form.[/footnote] and my banzooka [http://i.imgur.com/ShSY30G.png]. Choose wisely.

Uhuh... so I guess we are out of neutral people, then? Seeing how people who are openly hostile against parts of the community are now lifted to mod status. Can't say that inspires confidence in me. Made that mistake too in the past, the results were messy, and considering her predecessor... oh well. Things will run their course, I guess.

If you're considering that for your avatar, I went ahead and created two versions for you to pick from; consider it a welcoming gift for the new moderator, should it please you.
Oh you are amazing...thanks so much! :D That is really cool, I'll start using it immediately. But I may have to rotate it to fill the sudden demand for my avatar imagery, lol.

Thanks New for all of this, your word means a lot to me. And I do intend to learn and grow as you said :3

Thank you kindly! I will have to root around our arsenal and see what fits well...

Oh, and I forgot to use this again for Lilani's occassion:

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH. Well, I can assure you I'm not a sellout. And just to prove it, if you tell the clerk of the gift shop I sent you, they'll give you a Quantum Vagina beer coozy on the house.

I have 8chan's attention? Oh dear, lol. Well...hi? Looking at that thread, at first I felt a bit like this:


And then I saw some cool people saying let's wait to judge, and I felt more like this:


And thanks to everyone else who has shown support, and to those with concerns let's let time be the judge :)

Avatars come and go, at least you've got something to start with. :p Well, you would, if it didn't appear to be broken. D: I can't tell if it's me, or if it's actually broken, so I went ahead and recreated and reuploaded it, just in case.

That was surprisingly tame, well except for the swearing that puts mine to shame. Seems like most people are taking the route of "wait and see", but of course a few people are "ban her him now".

Come on, guys. Jumping on a mod on the first day of being one? At least those congratulating her vastly outweigh those not liking the situation right now.
