Staffing changes.

Post by Dragon Fogel » Wed Sep 30, 2009 5:54 am

Changes: I'm now an admin and thefalman is a global mod, instead of the other way around.

To be clear, this isn't a punishment for Fal or anything; he just wasn't using any of his admin powers. He told us beforehand that he doesn't mind the change.

The main focus of my new position will be getting rid of spambots. I'm already catching most of them as it is, but now I can IP-ban them. And if another bot comes along and makes 20 or so posts throughout the boards, I can delete them all with one moderator action. As such, I have updated my custom title to reflect this new duty.

My name looks weird in green.

(N.B. This is not a serious complaint.)

Surely "addons" or external programs exist which automatically do that? Kind of like email filters. I haven't looked, but even if there isn't no doubt one of the decent programmers here could create something along those lines.

Fal, I'm sure I've heard that in a film somewhere. It's really annoying me because I can't for the life of me figure out which. Enlighten me.

I'm sure there have been lines about bad omens in various films, but like the geek I am I'm actually referencing a line from the first mission of AoE II's Aztec campaign:

"I hear the growl of the jaguar. Is this a baaad omen?"
