    Default New Mod - Logroller

    Logroller will be part of our staff team going forward!

    I've known him for quite some time now and have always admired certain qualities, starting with his intelligence and debate skills. I have no doubt at all that he wants what is best for the board, wants better discussions, and will be more than fair with everyone.

    Hopefully with a few more staff members we can more proactively keep threads from going off track, move things faster and help more.

    Welcome, Log!

    I think that's it, just want bases covered!

    But that reminded me of this:

    Reminds me of an old Romulan saying, "may you live in interesting times." Or maybe that was, "only Nixon could go to China." Either way, I could suggest a couple of threads that are in serious need of moderation.

    Who needs rescue? Just moving some OT posts to the cage works for me. Lord knows I've made plenty of posts these past couple of days that deserve to be there. Are you man enough to admit the same?

    This is not perspectives. I think both of you have been members here long enough to know I run a fair board. This carries on to the staff. Ask any of the old timers, I still run the place the way I did my old board when I started in 2003. No one is going to go after anyone or take charge of the house. We simply need new mods to HELP, not to harm the place. All I ask is to give things chances when I make changes, and at least make your decisions based on reality and not what you perceive may happen.

    It's your board. If people don't like the way you run it, they are free to find one more to their liking.

    'Only Nixon could go to China', was an 'old Vulcan proverb', according to Spock in 'Undiscovered Country'.

    My inner geek required I set the record straight on that.

    Welcome, Logroller.

    Actually. I'm prepared for Gabby to be announced as the next Mod.

    I've seen this kind of stuff before. Nothing new. Guess Jim will just have to learn the hard way.

    What is the WORST case scenario? I think that would be a moderator banning people for no reason at all. Or even moderating regularly for no reason at all. A moderator running wild.

    But this won't happen. I have every bit of faith in Logroller and am more than extremely confident that he will be fair in moderating. I can also personally assure everyone that this board would never turn in that manner and it simply won't be happening.

    I understand there might be bad blood between a few. But hell, I don't think he even reported others posts, and certainly never got overtly personal with others. I see absolutely no reason to believe that this will change now. I give my guarantees as I know personally I would never allow unfairness to take over here, and I think Log and the rest of staff will echo me in saying that this isn't an interest of staff. Our sole interest is helping the board grow and get better.

    Judge my decisions should you want to, I'm used to it, but at least give Logroller a chance to moderate for awhile before judging.
