You may not be aware, but modding, properly done, is an onerous and reviled task. The glamour of the private forum is quickly overshadowed by all the crap. Kind of like enlisting in the armed forces because you "want to be all you can be" or to "see the world, one port at a time," and you end up being sent to Iraq to appease the conscious of a boy-king and end up being blown up by a roadside bomb placed by a twelve year old child.

What we really need here is +m.

I think this violates some law of conservation of modship.

I don't see the attraction of being a mod. I wouldn't want to do it.

I wouldn't mind being a mod here, but it isn't something I'd aspire to do.

Or, it can be a mod appointment like mine, where I sit around twiddling my thumbs in my all-but-dead domain. :P

"How exactly do you become a mod?"

To visualize the process, it's sort of a combination of WarGames and Fight Club. And at the end it looks like that bit at the end of Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith where Darth Vader rises up on that platform, his once bright, hopeful features ravaged by lava and Ewan McGregor.

Well, that explains Alorael, but Aran is still too pretty.

It'll pick up in a few days, then you'll long for peace and quiet.

Normally we like to think that members around here have an intelligence somewhat higher than the average dog. We'll know not to make that mistake with you next time. :P

Ok. I might not be a mod in this section, but I don't think we should all be pig piling another member just for being a little weird.

Really. Cut it out folks. This isn't cool. This is not what makes a community strong.

Thread should be closed before this becomes hurtful and ugly.

Huh. See, now I read that completely differently. I see no one making fun of another, at least in a harmful or derisive way.

Edit. I have re-read and now see where Kel and Randomizer make derisive comments. The other posts, not so much. Still, this seems rather tame, and Iffy did manage to bring up the subject of dogs all on his own. This is kind of like swatting a dog on the nose because he chewed your slippers rather than fetch them for you.

I agree with DV. Insults should stop here.

DV, do not taunt happy fun Ed memories.

I thouhgt it was don't bring a sword to a gun fight. Since missle weapons get first and sometimes last attack.

I'll stop picking on Iffy, but mods hit back.

Edit - Especially DV's tentacle slaps of pain and Aloreal's sniping.

I am actually quite intelligent. Though I am best at math (I do a grade higher math than that of my own).
However, I am really weak in arm strength (Iffy makes fun of me for that, but that is constant).

Okay, this conversation has gone crazy. Some random mod should go and stab this thread already (Imban will probably do it).
