Er… have you already had a discussion on the “mod voice” colour? Otherwise I'd have to confess that I had a pretty hard time reading that light blue text.

We wanted something that wasn’t abrasive and could be seen on both themes without too much trouble. It’s not a requirement that all the mods use it either.

The Miniatures Page has an "Utter Drivel" forum, that tag might be apt.

It's a short step from there to being banished to the outer darkness. We need to tread a fine line between indexing a certain sort of thing and being too obvious about stigmatizing the kind of insufferable berk that tends to dance through that particular minefield on a daily basis because he likes being edgy on a forum full of old farts who like to talk about gaming. It's a nuanced sort of endeavor.

BTW, I love, love, love the moderation here. As someone who was threadbanned on another site for doing absolutely nothing wrong and not violating a single rule (I $#!+ you not, you can look it up), I appreciate the deft touch of the mods here and stand in awe and appreciation of their work in making this an awesome place to talk about games.

Have a drink, mods - next round's on me!

Yeah, believe me, I understand. Cheers mate! (I could tell you what I was banned for never violated any rules, but I'd prefer to discuss it via PM for personal reasons.)

I see what your doing here. Trying to lure sweet innocent souls into the seedy backroom of the Pub, with seductive thread labels. But I for one will not fall for it.

I'm doing mostly fine, except for some stress regarding my parents.

Since my attempt at humour was a critical failure. Can I offer you a cup of tea as an apology?
Heh, sorry, it apparently was my sense of humour that was a critical failure.

The italics were supposed to give off the impression I was hitting on you.

(Which is now even less amusing after having explained it. :p)

No need to feel bad man. Now you know how all those who have subtly hit on me for real feels. I'm pretty dense with that kinda thing.

You know, I've always found density to be an attractive quality, as a general sort of thing.

I think we should offset this thread with a “to the mods, with love” thread.
Past experience makes me hesitant here. Not that I have any complaints. It shouldn't be a thankless task. It's just there was this other site where there are often brown nosing modlickng threads and I've come to dispise the culture around it. Never the less the mods here do deserve some positive reinforcement.

I wasn’t being serious, David. I actually like constructive criticism and I’ve been swayed to change my thinking on certain things based on these threads. If somebody loves us, great! If somebody says “I never did like G.I.Joe, Endless!”, well, then we have a problem.

Honestly, I can't say I didn't think of that myself, but then I've never been very good at taking compliments in general. I'm more just glad that the posters like it here, as they're the ones who make this place a community.
