With all the negative things the staff at SWK hears, I thought it would be nice to let you guys know that we appreciate the job you do. It is not easy trying to keep discussions civil and productive when you deal with such a diverse group of people, but I think you do a great job. Thank you for providing a place for us to come together and talk about whatever interests me may share.

So, what about it, guys? Care to add your thanks?

Gods, Jimbo, you're such a brown-noser to the staff. I bet you sleep with one of them too. Why else do you have a custom title at <1,000 posts? o_Q

His suspicious (sexual even :: ) relations with them aside, I should chip in my thanks too. It's probably quite frustrating to be dealing with the forums at times - I've certainly seen no shortage of drama, trolls and sycophants (I bet there'll be a lot in this thread :D) in the years I've been here, nor of people who criticize you for being politically correct/favoritist/corrupt/Nazist every other post. I don't doubt that it's a pain in the ass to moderate this place at times, but it really does show. Reported posts are responded to promptly, Ahto is still fun after years of mostly the same regulars, and newbies can still expect detailed help in modding games that are 3-4 years old. This same thing has been said in a lot of threads, yes, but this really is a very friendly community and it honestly wouldn't be possible without you guys here.

Oooooh, say, there's a bit of dirt on my nose... however did it get there? :xp:

You're welcome. It's not easy being so awesome, I wish people could understand how much hard work it is.

To look this good, live my fabulous life, and come on here and deal with some problematic people. It's just, intense. But like they say, work keeps you young. Which I guess is why I have the impeccably smooth skin of a baby.

:rofl: Well said ED.

Now, bend over LF staff, I'd like to k... thank you for all the hard work you're continuously doing here. In all seriousness, I haven't been around many forums, but out of those few I do frequent this one has the most reasonable rules and staff that make sure they are applied, so thanks for that. :)

Out of interest, to help you guys do you prefer to us report minor infringement of the rules, e.g. double posting, bumping and spamming etc? Normally I just leave it for you guys to find; would you prefer that I reported it?

Go ahead and report it--that way we can take care of it as quickly as possible. Depending on where the offense is, it may take us awhile to find it.

I knew it! I bet it's that Jae, too... always knew she had an element of favouritism about her. Yes. Well, we'll put a stop to that through SHEER FORCE OF WILL, no doubt.

Many thanks to the staff.

LF provides me with some of the most sexey mods/admins.

I have underpants with Niner, Insane, Rhett, tk and many moar printed to them. One pant one name. I mean just to have them...around..and feel them...and stuff. ^^

I also got a new one with "jmac for superadmin" on it, and we all know its true.

Well, toto fett 22 didn't just appear out of the blue, you know. :naughty: And, actually, I was given a custom title for my contribution to the April Fools joke (http://lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=177139&highlight=Twins%21) last year. If you remember, my first custom title was "King of the April Fools".

I'm one of those who's been at Lucasforums since before the merge of old, and I'd just like to say that the Moderators in these parts have always been above average. The one's at several forums go from being Nazis who close any and all threads that may reference a topic mentioned in passing in the giant 2000 post sticky at the top, to letting the annoying and vulgar slide with not so much as a warning.

So, after seeing Jebus's ridiculous rant thread and going wow, if I was a Mod, this would so be closed. then a day later, good ol Rogue Nine comes along and closes it for all of us with two working brain cells.

It just got me thinking, that seldom do I see a pointless, or crappy thread that isn't locked up quickly on general principal.

So, give the mods a big hand people. Without them, this place would be just another rant filled flame fest where anything goes, rather than the pleasant home on the internet that it is.

Thank you very much guys.

That is all.

It is natural. Someone congratulates the mod team every once in a while. It's always good to give the SWK staff a good pat on the back every once in a while. :)

Some...people...claim that rules here are too tight. Of course, I disagree, they're just tight enough. It keeps the atmosphere breathable, with enough enforcement but not so much as to silence discording opinions.

You'd be amazed how crappy some other forums are simply because there is no rules or there's too much censorship.


So, after seeing Jebus's ridiculous rant thread and going wow, if I was a Mod, this would so be closed.

I honestly had the same reaction. The forums shouldn't be used as a blog space and that clearly had no intention of being a thread worthy of discussion either.

People who complain the rules are 'too strict' are simply the ones breaking them. Rules are there to keep everyone happy and enjoying themselves, and it's a good moderation team that upholds those rules despite complaints. It speaks to a lot of courage, dedication, and high moral standards. :)

The staff here are ALOT better than many other forums i've visited.

They actually take the time to listen to both sides of problems and not just go along with the member with the best rep unlike on other forums too.

So thanks SWK staff!

And also to the staff in the other forums too. :)

Clearly what Obi-Wan said in in the following quote from The Phantom Menace must have been referring to the relationship between users and moderators.

What happens to one of you will affect the other. You must understand this.

Thus, I proclaim my appreciation for the moderaters in all that they do.

That's why that no matter what happens I come back here for more.

Ok, now I stop.


On a more serious note, although mods do a good job, I think the community also deserves some congratulations. People in general are quite friendly to everyone, including newbies. I remember trying to join another forum and was welcomed with aggression even though what I posted was absolutely harmless...not even a "hot" subject.

Quite true, these are some of the friendliest forums I've encountered on the net, and one of the very few I feel like actively participating on rather than just lurking.

So big thanks to everyone in the community for making this place into what it is. :)

aw, I missed the lovefest :p

AHTO is an unusual little island. Its like one of those freaky sci-fi places where everyone wears white, everything is clean and nothing bad happens :D

It is pleasant...but can get a bit dull...(thus my regular absences) It is a normal part of human interaction to be at odds and disagree at times, if you hang around here too much, you'll quickly forget that :p

Im glad Rhett, Sithy and Prime are still around.... reminds me of the craziness of the swamp circa 2002. That place was bananas !! L4M3R! The swamp is a sad and sorry shadow of its old self now, and AHTOs positive vibe makes it a safer place for an old man like me to hobble around :p

They said it would be better this year. It wasn't.
You'll have to sell it next time :D
Like: "Monkey gets Dog Pregnant 9 months ago. Today, freak baby monkey/dogs are born" and I could shop some images together to look like it really happened :D
But you'll have to do like what they did in '07, do it the night before for certain people, but the day of for certain people. Like what you did last year :D
