    Yes this is a serious thread.

    How come Toni is still a supervisor but he isn't active?
    Not that I care really just wondering.

    We still see Toni from time to time, but sadly he has a few IRL issues that he has to tend to before he can return to us. It's a situation that crops up with many of our staff members.
    We all love and respect Toni very much, and hope that he's able to return soon, so we're not about to strip him of his rank at this point.

    I've not heard any mention of us looking for new staff at this point, but then again those seem to be pretty spontaneous.
    We (moderators, that is) never know when the search will begin in earnest.

    Ah, gotcha.
    On that note, I'll move this to GBATemp.net Discussions, and give it a more appropriate title.

    One of the requirements is that you never ask to be mod.
    Directly or indirectly.
    Doing so immediately voids your chances foreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeever.

    From time to time the staff that volunteer to help here for free get preoccupied with real life. Just because that happens it doesn't mean they are any less suited for their position than people who have the time to be here more regularly.

    There is nothing else to really discuss here.

    Thread closed.

    I'm a forum cop. I very rarely announce that I'm the one who busted you for a forum infraction. But if I do bust you, don't take it personally, I'm just enforcing the rules, as I was entrusted to do. I don't look at the name of the person I'm busting, just the infraction that person perpetrated, and in some cases, the post count that person has when I dole out my punishment.

    I work during the week again now, so I'm not around as much as I used to be.....mostly weekends, but not exclusively. My specialty is oversized sigs and ava's and black-and-white infractions, which is to say, obvious stuff. I tend to let other mods handle the more obscure stuff....the grey area in our grey area, so to speak.

    Now, I'd like to think of myself as a nice guy when it comes to busting people. For instance, I tend to let it slide when people disagree with my (admittedly biased) opinions and leave their harsh retorts to my rants in my blogs, because I am an honest person and I would do the same thing if the situation was reversed. I am nothing if not honest and I respect other people's opinions, even if I don't agree with them. But don't be surprised if I argue back a bit, or not.

    I really don't like punishing people for infractions, and to be honest, I tend to go easy on you guys most of the time, but there are some things I WILL NOT tolerate. I already mentioned sigs and ava's when I catch them.....let me re-iterate those rules here, because many people seem to misunderstand them:

    The maximum combined file size for all graphics in a member's avatar and signature is: 80Kb
    Members may distribute this 80Kb however they wish (Example: 30Kb avatar/50Kb sig, 50Kb avatar/25Kb sig, etc.

    I just remove those over 80K infractions when I encounter them (sometimes I give a verbal warning first if it's a newer user and give them the chance to fix their error) but the other main thorn-in-my-side is ROM links and asking for same. Those get ZERO TOLERANCE from me. I catch you doing that and you WILL be suspended for a minimum of 3 days.....longer if you have enough posts to know better.

    I am Moderayder, watch your ass. I'm like the cop that hides in ambiguous places, ready to bust you if you screw up and I'm there to see it. Read the forum rules, follow them, and you'll be fine. Break the blatantly obvious rules, and I catch you, woe be unto you. I am not only a Moderayder, I am a Global Moderayder, that means I see ALL of you and can moderate ANY of you, no matter what sub-forum you post in. Your only saving grace is that when I read "View New Posts" that your thread was not interesting enough for me to look into to catch you at your shenanigans.

    It's all impersonal and unbiased, don't hate me for doing my job as I am obliged to do it. It's what I've been entrusted to do. I don't hate any of you will never purposely punish you unfairly. I promise you that.

    One of my favorite quotes, as it (loosely) applies to my duties here, is from "Bruce Almighty"......"I work in back, I see no smiles." The only difference is that I don't pick my nose in public or on camera. [​IMG]

    EDIT: In before the (or rather during) the lock. BOOYAH!
