Thank you SWK staff!
 
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?

jonathan7 01-02-2008 10:22 PM

Yeah, I think you all rock, and hope you know from any of my correspondance to you that I greatly appritiate your efforts, hope your having a great new year; keep it sexy! :)

Emperor Devon 01-02-2008 10:42 PM

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:

El Sitherino 01-02-2008 11:22 PM

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.

JediAthos 01-03-2008 11:54 PM

Definitely...thank you guys for everything you do to make this a fantastic site for all!

Quanon 01-04-2008 10:05 AM

Many thanks from a newbie xD

I admit this is a fun forum , nice spirit and reasonable people .

I've peeked on the Blizzard forums on news for SC 2 , man ...

Lets say , this is heaven ! :lol:

*@ssK*ssing is my hobby *

Marius Fett 01-04-2008 02:55 PM

Yeah, you do an amazing job, keep it up!

Rev7 01-05-2008 01:58 AM

Great job staff, keep up the fantastic work!

JoeDoe 2.0 01-05-2008 02:04 AM

Thanks for keeping these forums in top shape!! :D

: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. :)

Who, me? :D

jonathan7 01-09-2008 07:43 PM

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.

DarthJebus05 01-13-2008 09:50 AM

Thank you guys, you guys are da guys!

Quick, everyone to the Unknown Regions, 'cause we know which part of the forums newbies frequent most. :p

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.

Ray Jones 01-18-2008 08:47 AM

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 last year. If you remember, my first custom title was "King of the April Fools".

Rev7 01-26-2008 05:32 PM

^^^^^^^
I just read that whole thread, and I have to say that that was a great April Fools joke... :lol:

Hey, I couldn't help it, it was a great joke!
Back on topic under Salzella orders: Once again thank you for maintaining the forums, and keeping them in wonderful shape. :)

That reminds me, you ever get that stain out? I washed it three times and nothing happened.

The Seeker 02-17-2008 12:03 PM

Thank the Mods
 
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.

Sabretooth 02-17-2008 12:08 PM

...Is this supposed to be sarcastic or something? Because if not, it would have been in the Feedback forum, right?

Aash Li 02-17-2008 12:13 PM

I would have posted it here too, less chance of it turning into a troll-fest. >.>

Marius Fett 02-17-2008 12:18 PM

This thread is the same sort of thing. :)

lukeiamyourdad 02-17-2008 12:28 PM

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.

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.

:rofl: They obviously haven't been to other forums.

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. :)

adamqd 02-17-2008 02:17 PM

Some noses are changing color round here... J/K :D

No, it's Very friendly here and the mods do a good job of keeping the obnoxious away... well sometimes...:)

El Sitherino 02-17-2008 03:27 PM

This talk about things being just the right amount of tight is disturbing me... :eyeraise:

Quanon 02-17-2008 03:32 PM

I like thight and hot :xp:

Marius Fett 02-17-2008 03:36 PM

Moving aside from obscene innuendos... :xp:

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. :)

Miltiades 02-17-2008 03:40 PM

Yeah, you guys are doing all right... :)

Excellent.

Yes, mods, thanks for keeping the atmosphere civil but not oppressive.

Pho3nix 02-17-2008 04:11 PM

Sometimes mods can bee too serious imo, but generally they do a really good job.

Rogue Nine 02-17-2008 05:19 PM

Well c'mon Pho3nix. Don'tcha know internets is serious business?

:joy:

To justify the Feedback forum's existence, thread moved. ;)

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.

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

Well you know, I like things just perfect. Makes it all the more enjoyable. :)

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.
