Again, I never can make these things happen fast enough for people not to notice before I can say something. So a lot of you probably already know that we've got a new block of moderators joining up today.

We selected some people that we can work with, who have good dispositions, at least some smarts, and some knowledge of moderation tactics. Our new game forum moderators also will display a nice big chunk of specific knowledge to the games they will be modding.

So, welcome to our new moderators!
  • Mr Thou, upgraded to Global Moderator
  • Hanyou, a Global Moderator
  • Sabin, moderating Final Fantasy IV
  • Caesar and Djibriel , moderating Final Fantasy V and Final Fantasy VI
  • Super Moogle, moderating our General Topics and Gaming forums

We sincerely hope that these new folks will keep up the completely oppressive and "Nazi"-ish method of moderating forums that you all have come to expect and enjoy.

On another note, we will be adding some folks in the very near future to help with maintenance tasks around the site - we have already selected a few and will be letting you all know when they start to get cranking.

Thanks a lot to all!

I'm enthusiastic about the job like you couldn't imagine. CoN's FF V and FF VI boards are nice and fuzzy, and if I can do my part in protecting it from its enemies (spam, hate, capitalism), I'll gladly do it for great justice.

First actions as a moderator so far have only included getting a lovely avatar and putting up an actual photo of me so you can all see who you're dealing with. I haven't found me some evil-doers yet, but I suppose that's exactly what we want in the end.

I'll try my best in continuing CoN's often-scorned yet extremely effective policy.

Oh my... I would have liked to be the moderator of the FFT forum, yet I don't want to steal shutgonnova's place if he wants it. Even if taht forum doesn't need much moderatig...

And yes R51, maybe you should talk before you act since it makes this thread a lil pointless biggrin.gif

Keep it up guys!

No more so than if I did it the other way around.

And don't hold your breath, okay?

What do you mean? All I meant was that I knew it before I saw the actual topic

So reading this one was a --> ­LITTLE <-- pointless since I knew already that Ceasar, Djibriel, Hayou & Mr Thou became moderators

No offense really

Well the other way I would have been surprised to see that there were new mods, now you're gonna say that the same thing happened while I checked the gray stars under their avatar, but whatever I like typing so just forget everything I typed, is taht all right with you?

Just to say that...

Actually, had I done it the other way, someone like you would have just posted "YOU SED THEIR MODS BUT I DON'T SEE THERE STARS." So, whatever. Feel free to let it go now.

Well, I am going to go ahead and second Djibriel's post: I am thrilled to be part of the staff and moderator of the FFV and FFVI forums. Those are my two favorite FF games, if not RPGs in general, so modding them will be great.

As for the avatar, I'm gonna see if I can't get a penguin sprite to fill the place of Golbez for a little while. Unlike, Dji, however, I don't have a photo of me on file, so I guess you'll hafta wait either until I become dedicated enough to take a digital picture and upload it and such or until I find a scanner able to scan photos fairly decently. Or, you know, until I take over the world, after which you can see my face on all the billboards you see.

Btw, Dji, what's your avatar? It looks like an oil spill.

As a sidenote, is it true that even moderators have to choose FF-themed images?

I'd like to thank everyone for their comments, and the lovely staff here for this position. Lord knows we performed enough sexual favors for some sort of recognition around here.

To answer your question GMH, no we didn't have to choose Final Fantasy themed avatars. Surprisingly, some of us liked the Final Fantasy series and wanted to use something that shows our devotion to it. wink.gif

Djibriel clearly opted to visually represent the league of caring, noncorrupt overlords moderators overlords by proudly displaying the symbol of the Empire. Which might as well be an oil spill...of kindness and prosperity!

Seriously, congrats to the six of yas. smile.gif

Oh please, Blaine. I've been giving out sexual favors here since 2001, so you have no room to complain tongue.gif

And huzzah! It finally pays dividends in the form of FFIV Moderation. Thanks to everyone for pretending to care enough to post a fake congratulations here, and a muchas gracias to Josh, Tiddles, and co. for entrusting us new batch of mod n00bs with this responsibility. smile.gif

Come to think of it, I haven't payed me respects to the new mods, have I?

Congratulations!

The site's been absolutely brilliant thus far, and I can think of no other forum which has managed to rob me of as much of my time as this one has happy.gif (Although you probably hardly ever see me post anymore, I do visit it frequently. Trust me. Do I look like a liar?). And I know that with the recruitment of more into CoN's roster of moderators comes addition to its capacity to be great. As great as it is now. Nay, even greater.

Keep up the great work, guys.

Edit
A nice little bit of trivia to spice up my post: in the last three lines of the actual post, the word "great" was included in some form or another a dazzling four times. Go figure.
