Well hey all,

so here goes: I'm a music journalist from the Netherlands, 27 yrs old, turning 28 in a couple of weeks. Part of my job means being online a while, and that's how i got in touch with these boards. I'm an avid AOK-player and register at the Heavengames.com boards as well.

I've programmed in basic on MSX (late 80's) and had my computer-lessons on a Commodore Vic 20. Later, especially through MSX, I got into gaming and expanded to PC, SNES, Handhelds (Atari Lynx) and Playstation. The SNES and Lynx have been sold now.. (sorry if you were interested.. :-) )

PC gaming is a pastime now but i still have and operate on an MSX just for fun. An above-average interest in Star Wars-games / movies is for sure.. but i keep a clear head as to it being simply movies..for fun. You won't have me greeting you with 'May The Force Be With You' when i come across you on the street.

I've been an avid AOK-player with a near-expert level and Galactic Battlegrounds to me sounds like the dream Star Wars game. So let's dig into it and make these boards the place to be for that game !

Greetings,

Adminstrators get the better name while moderators get all the work. =) Basically Iím one of the webmasters of this site, my main priority is making sure things are running and getting news and content for the GB.com. While Paragon_Leonís job is to keep these boards running smoothly.

Also, what is the differenve between Admiral and Grand Admiral. Like Sherack is an Admiral, but you are a Grand Admiral. Is that a major difference? I always just assumed he was a mormal mod, like Leon is now.

Crongrats Leon.

Only if you make me, Rommel...

To put it shortly; anything that needs to be done to keep things smooth here..

most of the time i'll probably be moving threads to off-topic
but sometimes i might have to settle something or delete some harsh posts.

If you come across things you feel i should know about, give me a private message. that'll help me work through the boards speedily.

Happy posting,

Are you still going to post (none-mod related stuff)?
BTW Will you let the person edit their post before you delete it?

oh, you can bet on me popping up in discussions. after all, that's why i got here in the first place..

I'll allow them to edit if it makes sense to do so.. really harsh posts will be deleted without that opportunity. usually people only want to edit if they have some kind of conflict and they said something they regret. My advice ? Don't say it in the first place..

I'm a non-sleeping, typing-addictive human/alien hybrid.
that should tell you all you need to know..
seriously, expect me to be on most at 02:00 AM USA time and at about noon USA time... that's when i have the most opportunity. but i will pop in during early evenings from time to time, especially in the weekends.

I knew he would be a Mod! I'm also thinking that another person looks good to be a mod, but I won't name, names.
So leon, is that Eastern time, Pacific time or that other one?

No, he orginally said 2 am USA time which could be anything. He could have just said 2 am board time.
I never post bad stuff and if I did, what would be the point, it would be there when he gets on.
Can we please stay on the topic tie?
BTW You haven't been posting all that much, trying to get them to make you a mod? Or are you afraid of Leon?

No i'm not sucking up if that's what your trying to say

I simply don't have as much to say when the replies on some topics are only "i agree" or something of the sort. You may be suprised, but i only post when i have something to say. I could really care less about post count, coz i'm having fun and getting alot of info while answering a few questions on the side.

(Stop Mods!!!! Don't read this!!! Turn back now!!!!)

I do what i can, but seriously...i wasn't joking. I really don't care about getting a high post count, or about being a mod. I'm serioius. Why don't you believe me.

No, but i really am serious (for about the 4th time ) I don't come to these forums so i can get alot of posts, i come to have fun and get info, which i am doing. You can decide for yourself if i'm sucking up, but i'll shorten the process...i'm not.

Ok, if you don't care about them ask Leon to take away all your posts and rank and put you at fodder again. I dare you to do it
Sorry Leon for posting this in this thread.

You could take away my post count, but that is a symbol of the time i've invested in these boards, and i believe it earns a measure of respect, which i value greatly in life. Still, i want my special rank, you can take the posts after that (but don't unless you ask me)

I think that there are other ways of proving what i said, and one of them is my posting a little less. That should be all the proof you need, but instead, you see it as "sucking up." Another thing is to look at my posts in the Gallatic Discussion and Developer's board. You'll see that they are almost all completely relevant, or a response to a question or comment of another person. I have no doubt i my mind what i'm saying is true, but if you won't be convinced, then that's your problem. (no offense of course )

But enough of being really serious, i'm getting bored of it. Please don't bring this up again, coz there's nothing more i have to say.

No, I'll just move them with swift accuracy and mind-boggling speed, before you can even wonder why i did it..

I moved a few threads so far, but motivated why i did it..
These boards are for discussing the topics shown above the threads. Once there's too much of a 'yes you do' - 'no, i don't' thing going on, the topic really is lost.. which is when i either close the thread (if part of it is relevant) or move it altogether.

And i read EVERY post... (o, the horror...)

Was that a referrence to my Force Move Topic?

Anyway, I'm glad you're aboard now, Paragorn_Leon. It'll make my life a lot easier I'm also glad that you close topics that get too much into 'yes you do', like you said. I could never bring myself to do it... I was afraid I'd be hated
I guess it's the fate of us mods...

As long as you're always explaining why you do what you do, there's no hate involved... i guess..
or people simply want to hate you.
I'm thinking about simply deleting those posts in a thread that don't make sense, but keeping it open, once it has gone out of hand someplace.
we'll see how things fare.

Oh, wow Sherack Nhar, I never knew how nice you were. Drat! That means thats one less mod I can take shots at! Who is the webmaster of this board?
Leon, I really think you should come up with a saying. It seems to take the edge off when you have to move it. People bust up laughing at what you say they stop caring so much about you moving it. At least thats my take on it

A mod must make his own saying, so he becomes truely in tune with the force (much like a jedi must make his own lightsabre), no one can help you with this task Leon...
