This being a full moon (Aug. 9 - check it), I decided to peak into the HitmanHQ mail account, and after deleting 426 messages from people like Ro8459jfasn@mail.ru asking me if I wanted to buy some Xan&x, I found a couple messages from certain forum members (you know who your are), asking for more moderation in the forums. And by moderation, I mean the coordinated deletion of postings from people like Ro8459jfasn@mail.ru asking us if we want to buy some Xan&x.

I agree that the spamming has been getting out of hand. Although it has calmed down a bit since I upgraded the phpBB version number. Today I deleted almost 1000 users (!) from the database, most of which were spammers. The rest were people with 0 posts who registered before January 1, 2005.

So, that's fine. We can add either one or two moderators. If Jan0s wants to remain a moderator, please say! If not, it's the axe:)

So here's where the democratic process steps in. Decide who the moderators should be. /me grabs nearby stick, lowers visor, and assumes the ready stance.

Jan0s decided he didn't want to remain an active member of our community at the moment, he might change his mind later, so he won't be doing us much good as a mod

as for mods, I propose Wretch and Nexus, two very active members who wouldn't abuse their modship, well Nexus would, but probably not for too long

Maybe we should have male and female mods, imagine that.

I vote for me and Wretch.

I guess I'm the First Lady, then.

Sure, I'd be willing to pitch in. For my votes, I say Nexus and DC. Don't know if DC would want to, though. TomCo can be my sub-vote if DC shoots me down.

Moderator Slot A: Disco Cat or Nexus, but I think Nexus wants it more (baybeh)
Moderator Slot B: one slot is enough I think, more than one new moderator would destroy the HHQ equilibrium. Or you could give it to a woman, as a joke.

So my votes for:

Nexus
Alia Nexis

--Disco Cat if either of above suddenly dies

Nexus would be more fun as mod, but in all seriousness I think Disco Cat and (if I can vote for myself) I should be moderators, since both of us administer a small server or network elsewhere.


My vote:

DC (unless he doesn't want to or dies, then Nexus)
Alia Nexis (this is democracy! every vote counts, including your own!)

I will vote for Alia and Nexus.

Alia, despite her silence, browses the forums regularly. I notice her name in the list at the bottom of the index at least once a day. I trust her not to take moderating too personally and to stick to what the forum wants over her own wants. In the theme of things, she has also played all the hitman games and likes them more than I do. She is also easy to manipulate and gave me a large bag with a dollar sign sewn to the outside, and I can only guess what's on the inside.

Nexus because he really really really wants to be a mod, and all that community service he's done for HHQ has to count for something. He tends to be a hub of this community and comes up with content for the forums more regularly than most others here. He has been away a bit more often lately than he used to, but still posts often enough. Also I find his beard sexy.

And for the record, I would not object if I were to be elected.


edit: wait no, I vote for blank

I also would like to vote for our very own brigade. Something that will be useful in the war on bot-terrorism and to help bring fun back to our not-so-wholesome community.


I mean anything can be better than any other forums that are out there right now

dammit. now I'm bitter. Who the fuck started a lot of the discussion about spammers? ME! Who the fuck frequently recomended the idea of more mods to the HHQ public? ME! And not a single fucking vote!? This pisses me off! I demand a recount!

Alright, my votes go out to Disco Cat and Alia Nexis.

Disco cares a lot about this little board of ours, and he's possibly the most sensible guy around. Alia Nexis also shows a lot of dedication to the board, so she should be made a mod.

I was thinking of Wretch as well but he probably isn't hungry enough for this yet. A well-oiled machine needs motivated parts!


Thanks for the people who voted on me! I was away on vacation and only came back to the city to see the premiere of Superman Returns, so this is very much a surprise!

Also Tech21, I also think Jan0s should get booted from the VIP room.

It's not like he didn't do a good job, but I think he's gone from this board for good. And that way we can make room for two new moderators without it getting too crowded in the penthouse.

Now why would anybody do that? It's not like he's annoying or anything or causes trouble. As far as I know from my experience

Nexus and Wretch, all the way. They'll break the rules, sure, but they'll get results.
