The Gaucho situation shows we clearly need more mods. No, I'm not angling for it myself, I've had it once and I was shit. Plus I already mod on another forum and I'm not sure I could do it even if I was offered it.

Anyway. Ducky's the only mod who I see online every day, Cliff's online pretty regularly, but Kelsey's on infrequently and Leonie's busy with moving across the globe :p. I'm not criticising any of these people, they all do a good job, especially Leonie, but they need help. Mags and Renegade are hardly around these days at all. Liam and Baz are around as often as they can, but it's not really their job, and I think we actually should have mods doing the basic clean up.

Based on that it seems to me we need probably another 2-3 mods to fill up the roles. Leonie'll end up being online in a different time zone so we need someone in central Europe (might I recommend Foeni?), someone in the UK (especially with Poggs AWOL at the mo too)...Ice would probably be a unanimous choice, and someone in the US (to cover for both Mags and Renegade being away). Might I suggest Brad for that, he's mature and around a lot. In fact, all three I've mentioned strike me as responsible, mature and regularly around.

Of course it's not my decision as to who's chosen, or how, or whatever, I'm just pointing out something I feel needs addressing and offering a potential solution.

I think we need to institute some ultra-violence . . .

Noted and taken into consideration.
There's going to be some new administrative deployment in the next week to cover KKW when I go on holiday. If anyone would like to put themselves forward for management, get in touch. It's only two weeks.

I'd volunteer but KKW being run by Haz would be a scary thought, even if it was just for two weeks :p

I take it you'd like to return and find that you still have members?

I vote for ICE, he has experience with websites, is an native english speaker, he's not prejudiced, and he's online a lot.

For temp. Admin? Yeah, I was actually suggesting in IRC that maybe if Poggs is gone for a long time he might even be the person to step into that role. For all the reasons you said :)

Fo disagreed because he's a big fat girl.

Nah, not jealous. I know I'm in no way fit to be an admin (have no experience with websites) and I'm sure I'm not even being considered for that :)
Seriously, I'm not against it - I think ice would be a good choice. I am, however, willing to help out where I can.

Digi ftw, one of the few people who can keep a level head on the forums.

Exactly. I think he's a unanimous choice, you'd struggle to find anyone who opposed it.

Digital_Ice for God
Excellent choice for mod or higher
(psst ice you wont ban me right?)

However Brad is a horrible choice
He's republican slime
If he makes mod I will be forced
to hunt him down and kill him
Do you really want to feel guilty for his death

Yes, yes I do.

Well I HATE you!

Brad's a good choice...

I'm sure Digital_Ice is very qualified. I'd also recommend Jacoby and Jet.

Just to mention, I'm not away. I actually do check out the forums everyday, even only for a brief period. I just don't post much.

Foeni wants to recommended for something
How about Gay Boy of the year
Anyone second it?

Seconded, thirded, fourthed...I reckon we're unanimous on that one.

Ice, Brad, Foeni, or Jake would all be fine choices, I think.

Never really considered Jake. I agree with that choice too.

Jake is the shiz.

Shut up, will you? You've posted twice in this thread, both were to flame someone.

No, the second time was praise. Watch out, or you'll be balls-deep in pain.

I think all the suggestions are pretty good. We browse the forums enough. Ice is best for it, if he's up to it, I think. He's a good guy.

Foeni is a guy?

I'm all for Jake. He's the only person i talk to outside of KKW and is on all the time and knows what's up.

Thats the first laugh I've gotten from the forums for a long time. Nice work.

I'll have a chat to Baz sometime this week and we'll probably end up talking about pilot stuff. We'll try and wrest the conversation away long enough to come up with a temp-admin during that time.

Nope, both were good....the first for brad, the second for jake. Really anyone mentioned in this thread is great!

Except for you....

OOOH FLAME!!!

Just kidding....?

Whoops, my bad. Read the posts at 3 in the morning, probably missed a couple of words/sentences and thereby missing the meaning of the post.

No problem.

Honestly though, if someone stuck a gun to my head and told me to pick a new mod for kkw or else....I'd go with Jake. Mostly because I want to birth his children (which I sadly cannot) but also because he's on here all the time and is a pretty responsible dude.

Jacoby

And also because The New Pornographers fucking rock.


Do we really need another mod, though? I haven't seen too many cases where the forums were being torn apart because no one was policing the site.

Mods are definitely needed in any good site but I agree with Jake that the case for another mod isn't that strong.

Thing is, as much as Gaucho was contained, he then tried another persona, and I still think he's around on another account but I can't be sure. And the thing is, with POTC:DMC coming out soon, we can expect MASSIVE trolling. I just figure there's no harm in being prepared as I think we can expect 20 Gauchos once that film is released as some people are just sad and have nothing to do with their time but troll.

I see what you are saying but I think we lack for adequate candidates. Modding isn't about mates, it's about the brutal oppression of thought and cruel, inexplicable outbursts of savage wit. The only one with any inclinations in that direction is Ran, so if we must have new mods, he has my vote.

Hazzle

If I was proposing my mates it'd be Ran first and foremost :p.

I just think Ran has questionable moments. Then again, so have you ;)

I endorse questionable moments wholeheartedly.
