okay, this is my first thread about competitions (even though this is in GC, IDK where to put it, cuz in the Competitions thread, it might not survive, and this is a GC discussion/game), and the prize you win is a chance to pretend you were temporarily psychic and foresaw who the new moderator would be. (unless you really are psychic and "guessed" correctly, then, you cheated :()

any ways, i was thinking that we could guess the new moderator.

You have only one guess per each category (since Justin made it seem like we were only getting one new moderator as of now), but you could always edit it; but id like you all to try and humor me by not changing your votes just to see if your initial guess was right. (im not going to guess just yet, so dont yell at me).

Okay okay, we were hoping to wait but we might as well tell you now. It's a CIA trained penguin. We will have it permanently plugged into a computer so it can be on the look out for spamming and trolling. That's why it took so long to get a new moderator, all of that red tape and permits...:whi:

That Thread could then be Stored for New Moderators in the Future.

It would also stop the Useless Threads on Who will it be or Why should you become one or i dont like you. ect ect ect.

i can imagine he could make a good moderator; he just might be stricter than any mod before: like banning any Lady Gaga related conversations from ever taking place :p

Dennis's Mom does actually seem like a good choice. so, we have gathered that Rai nor Sarge arent the new Mods; i think we will get someone totally new.

maybe its a joke, and one of the Super Moderators will be demoted :pi:

not that they deserve to be, but it would be quite the twist :p

I trust their judgment. Whoever they select (and when/if that person subsequently accepts) will be a worthy addition to the moderation team. I expect that if no one they deem worthy accepts the role, than they will not lower the standards to simply fill a perceived void.

It used to be that mods moderated specific sections, but awhile back we were all given modding powers in all sections. Moderators usually still stick to whichever sections they actively participate in, but if there's an emergency in another section whoever is online can take care of it :)

Nothing.

People who have never been banned have either never been put into a situation that would incite a reaction that would get them banned or are highly favoured by the moderators and can get away with more than others. With someone who has been banned multiple times, again it doesn't really say anything unless they're still getting banned regularly.

Can anyone cite some examples of members and situations that mate with these circumstances that you have eluded to? I know that many are non-confrontational and "peaceful" and therefore unlikely to get into a situation that could lead to getting banned, but I would be interested to read the names of those considered "favored".

I don't think a reference can be found for the first point, but I do believe everyone is capable of doing/saying something that would get them banned (at least once) given the correct situation/provocation.

As for the second, maybe 'highly favoured' is the wrong example, but I'd be lying if I said I haven't seen situations where one person says or does something another would or has been banned for.

Fair enough, but you know exactly what drove him into behaving that way. I'm not saying I support him unconditionally, what you say is, indeed, completely immature - however, this "soap opera" has been going on for long enough for everyone to have a pretty clear image of it, and from my POV, only one of the responsible people is paying the price.

I talk to Draco from time to time, and unless he was lying the ban was already permanent before the alternate account was found.

I realize his behaviour wasn't exemplary, but I think we all know where that was coming from and banning him was far from a mature way of handling the situation (which, as far as I know, Draco at least tried to do). It seems that for some reason, he was walking on eggshells the same way as others on here walk on stone. Sure, we probably don't know the whole situation, but nothing has been done to take away the suspicions that are staring us all in the face, which, the way I see it, Draco was attempting to point out.

I was actually looking forward to his presence in a thread I was planning to start...
