View Full Version : First Post Yo

First Post! Welcome to the Political forum and thank to Grimlock from the Raven-Games forum/community for offering to moderate it!
Please keep in mind that this forum is for talking politics and we expect you to not flame one anouther in here. So be cool and remember that we all have different view points and beliefs. Try not to take things personally if somebody says something you don't agree with. ;)

Wow, this certainly is a surprise considering how against political talk yall seemed to be.
July 11th, 2006, 10:14 AM
Well political talk didn't go too well here in the past so a stop was put to it. It just got to be too much and Phoebus recently decided to make a Political forum here similar to the one on Raven_Games Forums, which is right here (http://forums.raven-games.com/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=105). By the way Phoebus and I don't really want to have anything to do with the modding in here and like I said Grimlock decided he would. Personally I don't like Politics much and tend to stay away from that kind of talk for the most part.
Hopefully this will work out. If not, then at least it was given a chance. Time will tell.

Suprising indeed! Cool! I'll go make threads.

I was drafted, I didn't volunteer :D For the record, I hope anyone doesn't give my views any weight based on the fact that I'm a moderator. And my views are by no means the official views of these forums, this site or anything else. If I write an opinion, it's my opinion and doesn't mean anything more than anyone elses.

Forums that think otherwise aren't worth bothering about. :D You're a brave soul, trying to moderate Newdoom! ;)
July 11th, 2006, 03:45 PM
I don't care about politics myself I stay well away from those things, good luck with the discussion :)
July 11th, 2006, 04:40 PM
Well either way, thanks for becoming a moderator for this forum. It is probably one of the harder ones to moderate due to the increased possibility of flaming. I'll agree with Alio, you are brave.
July 11th, 2006, 04:41 PM
Thanks for saying that. I had to put that disclaimer in because I've been accused of that in another forum here, despite only having actually used my moderator capacity in about 3 posts in a year.
The theory espoused was that because of my status my disagreeing with people routinely meant I was opressing their speech and freedom and hammering them with the official position of these forums and what not.
That being said, I'm on a roll today posting because people are actually making points rather than the standard "your a clueless idiot" that I'm used to seeing as a response to many posts (not always mine :D )
And just because I disagree with someone 100% doesn't mean I have any personal dislike for them. One of my good friends on the other forum usually disagrees with me 99.9999% of the time.
I've run an Information Technology department for a decade. I'm used to people calling me and crapping on me. Of course there I get paid for it, but hey thick skin is thick skin regardles of how it's acquired :D
You'd think in 5+ years of moderating MGE forums, I'd have come up with an avatar by now huh?

Sadly it's been a LOOOOOONG day already and I'm not getting the joke there.
Can I buy a clue please?
July 13th, 2006, 08:35 AM
I imagine you double-posted, and Doom_Dude fixed it for you.
July 13th, 2006, 09:02 AM
Oh well that would explain it then. I've been up to my ass in work the last day and a half so I had a big posting spree here and then had no time at all to even read stuff after that :)
July 13th, 2006, 10:26 AM
How come DD never fixes it when Hurdler, Pate, and SmiteMeister doub post? :p Or is that Rellik and Planky's job (where they'll also change the wording...). :D

Even DD isn't perfect, not that anyone expected him to be.
July 14th, 2006, 11:25 AM
There. Avatar installed. Happy? :D
July 14th, 2006, 05:12 PM
Looks nice Grimlock

July 14th, 2006, 07:31 PM
Well, I leave home for a few days, and look what appears. Nice stuff though! :)
July 14th, 2006, 08:24 PM
Can't take credit. Phoebus made it for me
July 14th, 2006, 09:47 PM
/me thanks NewDoom's deity. And his Avatar of Order.
July 15th, 2006, 05:20 AM
Yeah, cool avatar. *thumbs*
July 15th, 2006, 05:29 AM
Holy Mackeral! Grimlock got himself an avatar! We must be a bad influence. :D Looks nice Grimlock.
July 16th, 2006, 06:11 PM
It really does. I like it a lot.
July 18th, 2006, 09:31 PM
You know what rocks about this? I never gave much thought to an avatar before. Didn't really matter to me. But now that I have one, in a multi page thread, especially a highly active one, it's very easy for me to spot my last reply now so I can easily see what was posted after just by looking for my icon rather than reading all the names on the side.
July 18th, 2006, 10:59 PM
another double post XP. your a mod too XD.
lucky you got ur avatar so early. i had to really work for mine. just wondering, does a mod have to give you the little name things? i would like to have mine changed from cammander keen :P
July 19th, 2006, 12:00 AM
You have to have 300 posts and have been here for 60 days. Once you manage both of those you should be able to change the title. It says so in the rules thread. :p
July 19th, 2006, 04:43 AM
Or if you have both those things and it doesn't appear, a PM to an administrator. :) Oh by the way, anyone notice that Grimlock[EOD] is a secondary admin? Congrats! ;)
July 19th, 2006, 05:51 AM
grrrr.... i hate unlocking these things XD well, 50 to go. time to spam :D
July 19th, 2006, 10:38 PM
I only hit submit once. Not sure what's up there. I guess I should ask, are you referring to the fact that I have 2 consecutive posts that are different, or did i actually have the same post duplicated?
Thanks on the secondary admin. I'm kind of spreading out like an admin virus on the mindless games sites... :) Started out on the raven-games forums where I've been admin for a few years, and now I'm here... god forbid Phoebus puts a politics section in one of the other ones I'll probably have less of a life than I do now :D
Hey Rusty, my avatar wanted to know if it could get your avatars phone number :D
