why? seriously, why? what makes you want to be an admin so much? why are you so power hungry?!
I'm pretty sure i'd end up banning myself within a day
not out of any nihilistic urge, more likely through sheer incompetence, completely accidentally
a website...i don't want it for the power, but i just want to 'give something back'
-Someone would say something nasty to Mirri
-Chris would warn them
-They would tell him to fuck off
-He would ban them
-People would say he was out of line
-He would say he had no choice
-fishplums would reverse the ban
-chris_is_cool would make a thread apologising for banning in the first place, but maintain that the original poster was wrong to be mean to Mirri
pigfoot by numbers
i wouldn't let personal views on users to get in the way of what an admin should do.
this is not your manifesto
alot like his manifesto...
i like you, and i think most other people do too, but i can see how you would be targeted for jokes and shit
i would probably be more like i am IRL on here rather than c_i_c
oh for fucks sake. just admit you want the power
its a hassle, with no rewards whatsoever, and its not enjoyable, and its not really that noble or anything.
and be responsible for cleaning the boards up after a troll, or seeing if people should be banned and shit.
how often does, say, Mike_Diver actively moderate the boards?
If you want to do things, you can. If you can't be arsed, you can post as normal. Your only responsibility as such is don't go banning people or deleting stuff for no good reason.
...such as being the editor...
I'd have banned everyone within two days, including sean.
He'll stick to me like glue.
being up til 3am+, I'd get pissed off with the trolling and want to be able to ban their asses.
I don't really have insomnia anymore. And I hate admin, and I'd totally abuse it.
So, thanks but no.
Me: "Oh fucking hell. *delete delete delete* Yay!"
as long as he's not clogging up the boards i'd allow a little off hand race hate
it's the motion in the ocean baby!
Freaky D (freaky duck) will be the best Admin tag team ever!
I'd literally shit myself with disappointment.
no one deserves ring sting more then you
just means if there's a problem rather than moaning about it, you can do something about it.
campaigning to have the smallest bit of power... bit sad really
Oh wait, I just reread kik's post. As I was replying, I missed the 'important in someone's life' bit.
rather than focusing on messageboard insignificances
i wouldn't be able to take it seriously. i can't imagine a more embarrassing situation than having responsibility on an internet messageboard.
but i'm thinking of these people begging to be made admins...
it isn't that cool
enough. that's fine.
i was going to tell you all to fuck off.
I'd ban at least two people straight away, then fall on my sword.
being an admin is shit. the 'power' isn't worth the hassle.
When there's an outbreak of trolling and there are no mods about you wish you could do something about it. But that's the only time this board ever needs admins so it's no surprise.
i don't know. i used to moderate forums years ago and it is nothing but a hassle. you are never right.
this place is great as it rarely needs them. that is a good thing.
I don't care about trolls/ghouls/fairies or whatever the hell they are called these days, I just want to ban people who start inane threads destined to recieve 5 or 6 equally as inane replies and then be inexplicably bumped a month later, endlessly post smilies or just feel the need to reply to absolutely everything, even they they have absolutely nothing interesting to contribute.
I think most people would agree with me.
the trolls of the nightshift can stay there, if they encroach onto prime office time real estate then I'll be glad to polish you ban hammer
I'd have no problems being the Hitler of DiS
I'm not all that manly. I'll fashion something out of felt or velcro though if needs be
or bluetac. but i am sure you already knew that
I have got a moustache, making me prime Hitler of DiS material.
