How does RI feel about Facsimile No. 3? That's all that matters to me.

I have a warm spot in my heart for fac. 3..

Well, in that case, I change my vote just to support Shulem.

Res should be made mod even if he doesn't want to be. He should be forced to be a mod, for the greater good of the board.

Hey Dr. Shades I DID NOT ASK YOU TO SPLIT OUT THE PLAGIARISM THREAD!!!!

Indeed you didn't (read on).

I only asked if posts could be copied over to a documentation thread. I didn't hear back from you on that, so I have begun to do it myself. I can finish that off myself, there are less than 70 documentation posts out of over 500 on that thread.

Right, but merely copying a post would falsely make it look as though I was the originator of the content (since my username would attach). In order to preserve the original posters' names, I'd need to move the actual post. . . which amounts to "splitting" each such post out of the original thread anyway.

Quote:
Whatever else needs to be done on that thread I have no control over, I already contacted the mods and rescinded my reports on page 15 once I realized Jesse Pinkman had no intention of respecting my request to stop the foul language and talking about being "attacked."

It's all good; I'll have to respond to all reports sooner or later anyway. I think that categorizing all posts within one of the two relevant threads will render most or all of them moot, though.

If I may offer a suggestion: I don't think the best solution here is the kind of "splitting" you are suggesting; rather, I would recommend putting the main offending poster on the queue.

Point noted, but that wouldn't alleviate the posts that have already been made (within that thread only).

which is why I very specifically asked you if it would be possible to do.

I have no idea what you mean by that, nor do I have any clue what your plans are regarding the plagiarism thread, but I will step out and leave that in your capable hands.

Wouldn’t it have been simply to make RI a moderator, get the work on removing the attempts to drown the thread done and, hey presto, no need for pages/days long thread talking about what to do?

I’ve an idea, just do it already!

I think a true clone of Shades would probably point out that your handle is misspelled in the opening post and thread title. It may be a test.

More importantly: thanks for volunteering to help out here. I'd be hard pressed to think of a better candidate.

Mr. Rilpey,

This is Shades's forum. He is allowed to correct our grammar, not the other way around.

:wink:

You're quite correct. But a personal project has been taking up my free time of late. I'll get to this as soon as I can.

Shades has always gotten feedback from board posters before adding anyone to the Moderating Team. It is the kind of transparency that has made Shades’ board a successful venture.

Patience is obviously not one of your virtues. :rolleyes:

Understand that that wasn't a proposal on my part. It was the workaround solution to your saying:

Why are you trying to interject yourself into the conversation between me and Shades? Run out of opportunities elsewhere to clumsily and obviously manufacture a self-absorbed personal drama to try and feel elevated in terms of your own importance?

*I apologise to Shades for responding to your obvious trolling. I won’t be replying again, you don’t merit my time.

I think you just lit a fire under the campaign to elect him.

On the flip I wonder how many would leave if you were made the sole moderator. Why we might not have a board at all.

My, my. Aren’t we sensitive? I just called you on your obvious rudeness to the founder of our site. I have as much a right to comment here as anyone. You weren’t having a private conversation. You acted like an ass for everyone to see. I just called you on it.
