    Was done for the year until I saw this.

    You were more than a decent guy to me on many an occasion, maca. Dedicated, neutral, respectful - yet always telling it how it was. I envy you, sir.

    Hands down best user admin the forums have ever seen, or likely ever will see again.

    If I was wearing a hat it'd be off to ya, so I'll just raise my coffee and nod.

    And if Bret suddenly.... oh I don't know... is unable to accept the job because he was attacked by bears... then I could do it.

    Yeah there are a lot of good users who could pick up the mantle. Again, I don't want to be responsible for Adminning the boards. The GR community has a huge legacy, is awesome, and doesn't need staff to police itself. You guys don't need a whole lot of adminning anyways but it's more of a fill the role thing. while I have the administrators rights i don't use them... like ever.

    How about you interview people who want the job?

    It'll be just like The Office only not as amusing and nobody will care.

    I'd be fine with being a mod, but none of you will trust me enough with it so there's not much point in me offering, despite the fact that Dan up there would ban my ass without hesitation if i did something wrong.

    Also, i'd be cool with being an admin, but honestly i think one of the current mods would be better suited if they want it.

    On topic, Sam you're gonna be missed. You were fair all the times you've kicked my ass for being an idiot and never abused your power in any way, which is rare enough in admins in general, let alone of the one's from the past here on GR from what i've heard.
    Hope your life goes well man, make sure to check back on here occasionally and tell us how you're going.

    Bear attack? Not funny. We have bears here and they eat people. However, were I to run off and assimilate into bear culture and society...I could dig that hypothetical situation.

    For you consideration, a plug for me from a current mod as voted upon by the body of these forums.
    Obvious skills exhibited are obvious...and compelling.

    Thanks for all the kind words guys, it means a lot. I will come to the boards every so often, I might even find myself posting more now I don't need to worry about being an admin, who knows? I'll definitely want a say in mod affairs and have had my CO access confirmed so even though my power won't be official my opinion will hopefully be just as valued.

    I'm so lazy I doubt I'll take you off the admin list for another month.

    Bret's already working on his resume.

    I'd apply for the job (which means I'd obviously get it) but i'm not here enough to mod a forum that doesn't need a 7th mod. A public interview process would be funny, if it could somehow work. For the love of God don't pick madster... uh... no offense maddy. Good Luck dudes.

    And Maca, you better come back mister.

    Chris has been nominating me as a mod for quite a while. If any of the mods do take Maca's spot (which I feel should happen), who else feels I should be at least a mod?
    Also, I vote MattAY. Both I feel are equal candidates, but I like MattAY's accent than Longo dressing up as a girl. Oh, cheers to you maca. :toast:

    Since i was joking earlier, just want to seriously say that Sam was the best. He helped me immensely when I was starting out as a moderator and later as admin. His working relationship with the staff was unprecedented for a user-admin, and his contribution will be missed. See you around, bud.


    My shortlist for new mods (once Trippy and FTG get cut and MattAY gets promoted) goes:

    Bretimus
    Rakon
    Green Lantern
    GiftedMonkey
    Wicked Liquid

    Just my two cents.

    Want to know who I think should be the new mod?

    No one. Yet.

    Honestly, what does this really change? Maca goes from being here hardly ever to being here never. If either me or Mattay becomes Admin, the only difference between then and now is that we'd be able to take care of things on our own. Really, we do everything already, since there isn't that much that needs to be done. This place is slow, and really doesn't need hard moderation.

    If we suddenly get 10 more active users on the forums, then maybe, MAYBE we'll need one more mod. But now, nah. Eyes and ears are good enough. Between me and Mattay, nothing'll stay on for more than an hour, especially now that I'm back.

    As for who that moderator would be? That information is locked away safely in Covert Ops. In the communal safe. Next to the condoms.

    Not nominating Ugh for the next position available is down right criminal.
    He never turned sour or flamed the boards for all that we put him through... he actually improved. Dude has seniority and more than earned his stripes..

    He actually likes the place. Why is this even a thing? In a fair world, Ugh... in a fair world you've been mod for the past year :singletear:

    Chris stop it! Stop it man!! HE'LL BELIEVE YOU EVEN MORE!

    Yeah, myself and Longman are fine. And if someone posts porn, I'll PM Daniel or Lethean.
    The Longman is right, there's really no rush. People just want titles. Seriously, it's cooler if they just ask you rather than beg for the job ;)

    Yeah.

    I'll say it right now - Asking for it won't get you it. When we feel we need a mod or another admin, we'll figure out who the best person is and bestow the hard, time consuming responsibility of managing a high traffic gaming forum onto them.
