Whoa, some of our admins have been hitting the bottle a little hard, as it were, promoting people left and right. Oh well, they could've picked worse people. LadyJ is a good and level-headed forummite and she should do well as one of us. Her rise to power is an abrupt one, but hey.

I've been here for more than three years. So let this be an example: You don't have to have a huge post count to be a mod; you just have to be a girl if you want in early. :p

And Sithy, I'm not sure what just happened. The admin was fixing my settings, cuz nothing was showing up right; all of a sudden it says 'super'. WTF indeed, man. :confused:

Aristotle
07-10-2005, 11:08 PM
This was my call. If anyone has a particular issue with my decision, feel free to voice it directly to me.

I try to make sure we have a balance around here and that includes having women involved in adminstrative positions.

We'll be adding some additional mods as we move towards the launch of vb 3.0, and Lady happened to be one of the first new ones picked.

Anyone on here who contributes continually in a positive way is certainly a candidate for promotion in our community.

In fact if members want to nominate particular individuals they feel would make positive mods, please feel free to do so in a seperate post.

If anyone has a particular issue with any given mod I suggest you feel free to PM me with your concerns.

I would hope folks would congratulate Lady Jedi, not make her feel awkward based on a community promotion.

-Ari

El Sitherino
07-10-2005, 11:22 PM
Didn't mean to make her feel awkward, it's just we know pretty much nothing about her. She's a lurker after all.

Aristotle
07-10-2005, 11:22 PM
To make sure we're fair about the "mod" promotions, we'll start Lady Jedi as a mod, rather than a super mod. I originally switched her to that since it appeared her mod rank was not properly working regarding post privs ... but those appear to have resolved.

Again, if folks feel strongly about nominating someone for a mod position, please feel free to.

-Ari

El Sitherino
07-10-2005, 11:28 PM

Lady Jedi, if you need any help on anything. I'll be glad to show you the ropes. I'm sure ET would be glad to as well. We all just want everyone to be cohesive and work well as a team. So far we (mods of all kinds) all seem to get along.

hey, thats great news lady jedi :D

since lexxy hasnt been around, I have always been advocating we make things a bit more female friendly. eg. getting rid of the 'hot women pics' thread.... but poor Astro just gets told to bugger off... Im glad the (aptly named) Aristotle had the wisdom to action something to dispel the increasing boys club mentality that is affecting various areas.

Hopefully the presence of an identifiably female mod will make this place more female friendly :D

hey, congrats also to Jed !! ah, how I would love to be an admin, and crush uncool supermods with a wave of my mighty hand! but alas, Astro has far too many detractors for anything like that to *ever* happen (probably a good thing too!)

w00tage Lady Jedi and Jed !!

Seems to me the only non-female friendly-ness is in your mind. I fail to see any boys club crap at all. If there is a lack of femininity it's not our fault but that of the female members not being vocal enough.

Congradulations on your Moderator appointment. I think what this does prove is that quality of posts not quantity is what makes a good moderator. Instead of having 3000 ones that are below par with quality, she has 300 high quality ones that contribute to the community. (i hope im right :p)

But as Uncle Ben said: "with great power comes great responsibility." Enjoy

Hopefully everyone has noticed the major improvement since the last upgrade.

Okay, everyone:

@Groovy: Yes, I know, but I didn't post my own B-day thread so I consider this okay. Plus, I used it to say thanks rather than just congratulate myself. :D

@Sith: You're right, I've been a lurker; it's fun, but I'll see about maybe laying off of that...or not. Do you need to know about me in order to be okay with this?

@Astro: Whatever. It's girls' fault for not being noticed here; and with guys like you around I can see why they're so quiet about it. :p

@Dravis: Thanks. :D

@Everyone else: If anyone has any problem with me or my rank shoot me a PM. Let's not bother Aristotle too much; he just happened to give me more credit than I deserve, and we can't fault him for that. :)

Oy, this could take a while. Let's see here:
I like to read a lot, but not so much in the summer. I mainly work with horses and I like to be on the river. Music is crucial; ya know a bit of everything, except rap. Blegh.

Joke about what you want. I don't care. I tend to be rather acceptant of other people's views. To each their own right?

Hey, Rhett, glad to see you're back. :D
