Which, by the by, has not been the best of tones lately, with the actions and attitudes that have seemingly been permissible from members as of late. I thought respect of other members was a requirement, but it seems that if you make a few of the right people laugh, you can show disrespect to whomever you want.

I just wanted to know exactly why the guy was made a mod instead of just site staff.
Because we ('The Staff') considered him a good candidate. He would make good site staff, yeah, but I'm certain he's also good as a moderator, based on his posts here and the reputation that preceded him.

Especially when I heard that Tennyo was going to become a mod instead.
She was? News to me, :monster:. Or I'm just not paying attention.

And I'm sorry for misreading ten pages of inquiries, quips, accusations and general disgruntlements as torches and pitchforks - I get that whenever we do something that may not appease the members as much.

Phrased like that, you're making it sound like it's the members' responsibility to ensure the staff are happy and feel accepted, when it's completely the other way round. It's the staff's responsibility to ensure that such segregation isn't taking place.

Troof. But at the very least, members could say 'I don't like it personally, but I know you guys love us and have the best things in mind for the site, so I'll love you nevertheless, <3'. Or something to that effect.

But as I said (and repeated in the staff section), I warned 'em, :monster:. Next time something like this (i.e. assigning someone to staff without running it by the members first) happens, I'll say 'fuck you nigger' to Mako and point him to this thread and the disgruntlement by the members because of it.

Oh BS. The entire summation of criticism here hasn't even been about a "heads up" and more along the lines of his "credentials" and why he was appointed in the first place. And way to go at blaming me, fucker. :monster:

Well it was probably your fault. tbf.

it's always Mako's fault :awesome:

These were my complaints in the staff section about his promotion.

Also, as awesome as this guys is, he only has 120 posts. Why the fuck is he being modded if he isn't active on the boards? Come on people, we don't need another Schala-Kitty around here.

I completely understand adding him to the Site Staff, but there's no valid reason to make him a mod if he's never going to be here to moderate the forum. I'd like to see him be more active here before we go about adding him as a Mod.

Hell, Tennyo or even Dacon (if he's willing to return) are more deserving of the position.

Like some of you here I have my argument with his promotion. But, given the fact he's already been staffed and considering his credentials I think we should give him a chance to prove himself as a moderator.

I would have rather had Tennyo as a mod cause FSM knows she's a sweetheart and she'd look at all the issues at hand in an argument.

I'm fine with SoS/Tres being a mod, but I just don't know him that well, and that concerns me as a member. I don't know if he'd suddenly flip shit and ban everyone or if he'd be just as objective as Ten. So that's why I bitched/mocked.

I should just call you a bitch a be done with it, because you act so dense it's hilarious. Since extenuating circumstances are going to keep me from coming here, and I've already request a ban, I certainly should. I wish I could say I was leaving because "OMG STAFF IZ SO MEANS" but I don't have that luxury.

Staff hasn't let me get away with shit, and every time I've outright flamed someone I was warned for it. So stuff it and keep it stuffed. Oh and for your information, the only person on staff that I supposedly don't "like"(even then that's going too far) is MOG, and I've mostly never been friendly with him in general.
The thing is I don't need you to tell me I'm being a bitch, I'm fully aware that I'm being a bitch.

Look if stuff IRL is bothering you, then I'm sorry if I made things worse. I was just surprised to see you of all people complaining about the staff. You certainly have that right but I'm going to have to disagree.

So don't take anything personally, okay? I certainly never did when you reacted to me. TBH I think you're a pretty good member here and I never really had a problem with you.

So can we call a truce before you leave? I don't want you to leave hating me or anything.

Marauder 11/08/2009 11:58 PM

How big of your ego to assume that you're making things worse :monster:

Dashell 11/09/2009 12:00 AM

I said "IF" I made things worse, IF. :awesomonster:
