Our awesome mod-squad

Let's put our local heroes in the spotlight and give them a big thank you!

The amount of spam has grown like 10 times since a few months back, and with aparently noone around to fix the registration forms, and they're very busy with fencing off the spambots.



taken from the forums main list.. did I forget anyone?

Jesus loves you [yes, you] so much, he even died for you so that you will not need to die, but live forever

Very cool, it is much appreciated. Thank you all for support during this mess, it is good to know you still have faith in us. As a little update as Nick mentioned we are working towards updating things for better spam protection but as of yet we don't have anything definite as far as timing.

Thanks again,
Tom

Thanks from me also. Playing whack-a-mole with spammers is tiresome, to say the least. I think we all appreciate the encouragement!

Thank You! It feels like I have been spending more time busting spam than posting.

Also, thanks to Nick@ss for posting the link backstage.

Please do not PM me for tech support. Any request for tech support through PM will be ignored.

I'm a little late (as usual) and much has been said ... But we all do this for you and everyone that is a part of this community. If not for my love of these forums I would have thrown in the towel long ago.

Thank you all.

RB bores me and I'm not into SHOUTcast like I used to be; I haven't wandered from GD in what seems like forever.

This is a sig of some nature.

^That statement matches the expression on the avatar.

In the subforums I frequent (RB, GD, BL), the current mods seem to be doing a rather good job, considering the rather enormous mountains of spam that they've been removing. I don't know a whole lot about the subject, but I believe a better anti-spam measure of sign-up changes would be more effective than dubbing me a moderator. Don't get me wrong, I'm honored by the 'nominations', but until a big need arises in combination with other capable members not willing to fill the spot, I'll enjoy just being a regular member and counting whore. It's one of those things where I'd rather not, but I would do it if there was a genuine need.

Besides, there's the possibility that I would end up spending loads of time being OCD and correcting incorrect counts on the counting thread.

[edit]
If I were to be asked to nominate someone for "modhood", I'd probably pick gaekwad2 for the following reasons:
His posts seem mostly impartial and intellligent,
he has a good amount of seniority,
and his activity seems like it is often enough to do moderator work in a reasonable amount of reaction time.
The only hesitation is that he might have the same aversion to taking out the trash that I do. Almost seems unfair that the mods take all the trash out and we get to post with little or no distraction without duties, which is the whole point of this thread thanking those who make it possible.
[/edit]

Don't forget to live before you die.
