Oh come on, you really chose Random 21 for an entry mod? That guy is probably the stupidest guy on the entire site, he shouldn’t be a mod, he should be banned. On a serious note, well done to everyone!

Congrats to everyone! I was wondering when that was all coming into effect.

I knew it wouldn’t be too long until Random 21 and Triple Z got the promotion. But why the hell hasn’t Efrain got anything yet?

Congrats on the guys who became mods! I want to be a forum mod too but I’m still sorta new here. I’ll just try and help and see if I have a shot.

Congrats for every mod out there, again

This is nice. Everyone who got upgraded and the users who were modded definitely deserved it. Great job, you guys.

This thread locked the last time I tried to post in it. :(

Congratulations all on your promotions! I have some friends up in that list.

You people are very friendly. Keep up the good work.

Umm… whoops.

That was probably my doing. I decided to have some fun with the users and make them think I’ve gone mad with power. I did so by locking this thread.

Congratulations to all new and promoted mods. At some point, I’d like to be a mod of something, but I’m still a new member, so that won’t be for a long, long time. Also, why is gi97ol not an Entry Moderator yet?

Congratulations guys!

Nice to see people getting what they deserve!

Aug 17, 2012 at 04:03AM EDT

In lieu of individually congratulating people as I notice their new-found mod status as I browse the forum, I shall do so in this thread.

Congratulations, everyone. The promotions were well deserved, especially in the cases of Verbose and RandomMan (slight Poni General bias here), and the new mods are even more so.

From what I find, the people who deserved a promotion did in fact get one, however those who didn’t seem like they could handle it didn’t receive one (Not naming names).

But anyway, I feel that the choices made were very good ones and I was surprised why they didn’t get the promotions earlier, but I understand.

Congratulations! You are now superior! (lol but seriously, congrats.)

Special Congratulations Text!

Forgive any ignorance on my part, but what exactly does a Research Moderator do?

It’s basically an entry mod + a forum mod. Mix in image/video mod posters and you get Database mod. Sr. entry mods like me are entry + image/video. Also, being promoted above entry mod gives you ban powers.

I would think Research Moderator would constitute entry + I/V since that’s basically what research on this site is. But I guess that’s up to the Admins.

I think that the distinction is that I/Vs are categorized by entry, since very few of them are uploaded on their own, so mixing them with entry mod powers is treated like an extension of the entry mod’s responsibilities. Meanwhile, the actual act of research is often, for complex and highly collaborative entries, coordinated on the forums, so that is where that name comes from. I agree, though, that something like “community mod” would be a better name for Mister J’s rank.

officially? wait… does that means I was a covert moderator like a ninja? hahaha.

Anyway, congratulations to new mods!

Blah, blah, blah, congratulations, blah, blah, fully deserve it, blah, blah… (Not intending to belittle anybody’s accomplishments, I’m just not feeling particularly eloquent at the moment.)

Seriously, though… I have some semi-rhetorical questions.

Why is it that I always see these threads long, long after they’re actually posted?

How do I seem to never know any of the image mods?

Am I the only one who is repeatedly surprised by who is promoted, not because I didn’t think they deserved it, but because I’m shocked by things like, “Wait, I thought RandomMan, opspe, and Verbose were already running the place?!?”

When do I get promoted to something like “Memetic Demigod” or get a paid position? (And why does KYM give me a craving for power that few other things do?)

Does anyone else think we should give folks like Trollkeeper titles like “Self-moderator” out of wishful thinking?

Is there anything that’s not RandomMan’s fetish?
