I've been here for about 2 years now, and I have no clue who the moderators are here. Not one. In that same time I've been banned from several other boards for speaking my mind. It's kinda my MO...

Just wanted ya'all to stand up and take a bow.

It's not very often that you find a place where free speech is held in such a high regard. Almost makes me wonder sometimes if the Alliance is actually providing a platform for us to speak just so they know what we're thinking and who to watch.

I've been here since 2005 and I don't think that there are any Mods. There is sort of an unwritten rule that everyone remains civil and respects each other despite disagreeing.

That's the beauty of this site. You may get disagreeded with, and passionately disagreeded with, but we sort it out among ourselves.

we are a 'special' breed here.
rules are different for VFF crew members.
it's a 'universal' invariant.

Everything you said is just awesome man. I know I've seen you around before; quite a bit more often when I wasn't spending 98% of my time here in the RWED. Don't know if I've ever had the opening to make your acquaintance.

Name's Jack, nice to meet ya...

We got our own type of folk in there, and even the ones that get personal with each other still usually come back for more..... just a different breed of people in there than the more civil types here who don't drop by there as much. Sure we don't come out here as often either, but I do hope we put on our polite mask and make a general good impression overall. Particularly to the ladyfolk, many of which never cease to amaze and impart their wisdom on the less enchanting of the species round here.

Wonder if the same could be said about Troll Country... Probably, I'm thinking. Honestly I've never been there myself and have no clue what they talk about at all. Or never asked anybody about it or talked to anybody who said they were from there.

Right then... no mods, huh?

None ever? Or they sailed on off, ya think?

A little nook in the crannies of the internet where there is no dominion of a hierarch. I didn't think that such a place could exist.

Maybe it's because I don't visit a ton of blogs other than this one and it might be this way in other places too..... Don't it strike anyone else as funny that this is the only place in your life where there is no rules?

Guess the rules ain't really been tested in here before though, at least since I've been here, as nobody has ever gotten to that point that anything became really crazy.... but there's been plenty said over the years that mostly would have seen a whole lot of people banned in other forums.

I like that it doesn't happen here. It makes the experience more human.

And ya know what....?

At this juncture, I haven't seen any nussiance that hasen't worked itself out over the 2 years I've been here.... All without intervention.

When fine people of all types get together, destiny generally tends to err on the side of good, I think.



EDITED TO ADD:

Just saw this after I posted....

Shadowcaptain.... Now I ain't never seen you around here before. I like that. A man who I can belive lives up to his name without any work on my part.

Made mention of the special breed in this part of the verse in my post before I even seen your post. I do believe you're right...

The board was set up by Haken going on 6 years ago now, and he's still around on occasion. And I know that Shiny is/was a mod-type person, but haven't seen him in an age or two.

The worst official punishment seems to be having your thread dumped into Troll Country. Unofficially, a few people have been ignored into going away.

Doesn't 11thHour also have some power on the boards?

I think there are 4 mods. Shiny and 11th Hour are mods, but I don't think the others talk about their status. I won't out them if they prefer to remain unknown. They don't make a big fuss and flaunt their powers. Just every so often another thread is moved to Troll Country or an IP is blocked.

I can confirm that Shiny and 11thhour are mods: I've had short exchanges with them in that capacity (no I wasn't getting in trouble). Don't know about any others.

Glad to see the question was wonderN this myself lately.
I guess what they say just might be true.
Great minds think alike Or Like Minds Think Great.

Been looking for a place on the boards that states, A few notes of etiquite. A bit more than the obvious be nice quotes, Sort of info such as how much space is available on server type info, is posting pics and such prohibited or prefered?
Knew of Haken.
Seemed a busy fellow and didn't want to bother without need.
-
The more I learn the more this site can seem endless. There are more photos in the blue room than could be stacked in a room. And more posts than can be read, it seems.

Hardly seems Like my work could be the straw on the servers back that tips the scales to full.

Seems like this place is made to show the world, the verse. Our Verse, And here is her signal.

I got hopelessly muddled after 1,028, so I googled "convert binary to decimal" and used the first program that came up.

BTW, if you try and convert it to ascii it doesn't work.

All I did was open the computer calculator, set it to scientific, set it to BIN, pasted the number in, and switched it to DEC.

I give up. What's it mean?

Have you noticed our friend Pathfinder has edited his or her message to change the code?

Unfortunately it still doesn't mean anything, unless 324 89206 3799 has particular importance.
(And it still doesn't translate to ascii, unless ¢Çn× has a secret meaning...)


Here's my secret word for the day (it can be converted to ascii, and I guarantee it is a real word):

01110011 01100101 01110010 01100101 01101110 01101001 01110100 01111001

Have to give it a look SC. Always want to get more creative with my writing, but never seems that I get round to doing it. Don't mean that I don't have a lot to say or refrain from saying it, but my creativity usually comes in short and loud bursts. Don't know if I'll ever get that novel written.

Thanks for the offer and I'll take a look at what ya'all are doing.

Well, this is Haken's site, so we/I try to follow his lead and only moderate when there is abuse or things are clearly getting out of hand.

In general, as long as folks avoid personal attacks, and try to post in the right forums, I don't see any reason to touch their posts.

Oh, and as long as people make reasonable efforts to avoid posting spoilers about relatively recent shows/movies they are discussing (don't say anything about BSG season 4! I'm waiting for the DVDs! La la la...I can't HEAR you!!!)
