Congrats to Andviv, AroundTheWorld and Russ H -- The Fastlane's newest and first moderators!

They have volunteered (when convenient to them in their visits) to help keep things neat and tidy around here - remove spammers, ban users, close threads, etc.

I personally want to thank them for the added eyes on here as well as their quality contribution to the content of this discussion forum.

:thankyousign:

MJ

Thanks to all the moderators. It is nice to be able to read a board without crazy aggressive SPAM and rude obnoxious Flamers.

Wow, it's an honor.

And I see that one of my first duties is to christen my new set of wheels, as I've gone from "Lexus" to a new kind of car called a "Moderator".

As some of you know, I grew up in Detroit.

What most of you don't know is that I have a long-lost brother who is CEO of a major car company.

A few years ago, he let me design my own car!

So, in honor of my new position, I'm calling it "the Moderator 2000".

Vroooooooooom! :)

(you'll recognize me in the front seat)

I think my first action as a Mod will be to ban MJ for changing my 'Lexus' for a 'Moderator 2000'

Hey Andviv,

When we were designing the car, my brother came up with another one that I kinda liked, too.

It went faster, but didn't have the cool megaphone attachment (it kept blowing off at high speeds).

And I need at least 8 cup holders.

Since it's just sitting here in my garage, I'd be happy to give you this car.

Park it in your avatar garage if you want. :)

Hey Sonya,

Need a moderator car?

I have one called "The Whip"

(so named b/c everyone that rode in it got whiplash).

Hmmm . . . maybe giving you this car is not the best idea . . . :smxB:

LOL..... I think I would need a ladder!

Thanks for volunteering guys and girl!

(Sounds like you'll all have more support here than I do at RDPD.)
Bob,

I think the key to a successful board (or atleast one key) is that the RULES have to support the GOAL. Heck... for that matter the Goal has to be in line with the VALUES...

I would venture a guess that the GOAL of the RD boards is volume to the site.... nothing else.

I am happy to moderate a site in which the developer is striving for QUALITY.

I don't know if I agree with the "volume" thing.

I think Darth is the driving force behind the forum...
...and I think he is just an over-believer in free speech.

Either that, or anarchy.

I have nothing to base this on, since Darth has never said this, but given the enormous workload he has at RD (easily doing the work of 5 people), I think his philosophy may be driven, in part, but which approach is the most expedient.

Actually, no. The wheels are normal size.

It's the car that's small.

Used to be used in a circus.

30 or 40 tiny clowns rode around in it. :smxA:

ah.... that would make sense then...

so, for him free speech is more important than creating a quality environment for RD Boards? interesting.

I can't say I agree with him, and maybe I've read him wrong, but that is what I think.

Congrats, by the way...
...I see you've just been moved up to "Super" Moderator.:notworthy::hl::hurray:

Oops...now back to plain old Moderator.

Actually, Attention Moderators! You now have the power to entitle yourself anything you want .... so I think I'd like to start naming Russ H "McLovin"

(Some of you will know what that means...:smxF:)

Congrats ATW, Andviv and Russ.

Wow, Russ is going to be a moderator!!! I've seen Russ try to keep order in boards where he wasn't a moderator, so you know he means business! Go Russ! Oh, and that car, I'm just 'Lovin it.

Again, congrats all.

Russ, worked on it all night long... couldn't make that megaphone to stay on the car while going above 80 MPH... I think I will have to keep the Moderator 2000, special edition (double megaphone, just to be more noisy)

Acutually, I was a moderator on the RD forums at one time. Once I realized that we couldn't do anything efficiently, and we had no power to boot the scammers/spammers, I turned in my badge.

But I never got to use this cool car over there!!! :smilielol:

I think there were rocket launchers in both of the side air dams.

Maybe see if you can squeeze 2 megaphones in there? (you might lose the rocket launchers, though).

You never know when you're going to need a good rocket launcher. :)
