I think it has to do with boxes of hooters hot wings or something like that.   ;D

In reality I think the site Admins and the mods on the board will look at the members and see who they like.  If a need arises for more mods then they will propbally ask those people to be mods.  


Fettish Sez Thanks

Man, the mods were picked closer to the time the forums were set up, not that they were ever needed.

It would be like putting riot police in an old folks home. Totally unnecessary.

But to answer your question, cutting a generous check in Chris' name always helps.  :-*

Yeah, these forums definately don't need mods, which is a big thing I love about coming over here.

Where some of the Star Wars Collecting forums are like hopping nightclubs, this place is kind of like the hole in the wall bar. It attracts a loyal crowd, but never gets out of hand, and "everybody knows your name".... Not to imply we are all a bunch of raging alcoholics or anything ;)

I don't know what hurts more, that comment or Adam's comment about raging alcoholics.   :-X

You might start posting over at Rebelscum, actually.

For one thing, as proven by their "fine" moderators such as Bounty Hunter GNT and Lord Stumpy, their standards for hiring mods aren't as high as they are here (apologies Josh).  You'd probably fit right in over there, and could make mod in no time.

And something else, they will also reward your prolific posting habits with many different "ranks" that you can "achieve", along with some neat little colored boxes that will increase with each new level you get to.

Overall, you would have a much, much more enjoyable time at Rebelscum than you would here.

My gawd, stay here please. You don't want to read through the posts of some of those people. The only things you can find at RS are fights in the Saga section, 87 billion "DVDs This WEEK/yEAr" threads, and political discussion. Oh yeah, not to mention "Greg(g)" and "Eli-Durge".

JD is a good place to hang. Like they said, no mods are really needed (Have they ever locked a thread here?), and the members are friendly as ever. I'm just so fed up with 'Scum that I'm starting to spend more and more time there.

Shut up!

Well, Texas, while your experience was certainly the exception, and not the rule, taking a look at it, I can't help but think that Rebelscum might be a little more equipped to meet Mainland05's needs than JD.  

They have a much superior forum than we do here.

We are the dregs.

I think he'd have a much better time over there.

Well, does he have blood flowing through his veins?  Then hell yeah he would!

I love that thread.  That Sonic Death fella was a riot.
