    Greetings, everyone!

    The moderation team is excited to announce that two new moderators will be joining the moderation team. First, christopher_best will be replacing Ramshutu as a debate moderator. He will work with blamonkey to ensure that votes are met to our standards. Second, PressF4Respect is joining the team as a forum moderator. As a forum moderator, he will be working with speedrace, Ragnar, and myself to ensure that the forums remain a friendly place. 

    What happens next? These two will be undergoing a probationary period for the next few weeks. Upon satisfactorily completing their training, they will be officially installed as new moderators. 

    If you applied and were not chosen, we will keep your application on file for the future. 

    -Virtuoso

    C_B barely even debates anymore, let alone vote. He does neither and is overall inactive to the website. I am curious what he said or did to be chosen over me.

    In fact, this guy has only 12 votes, none of which I would call particularly high quality... I am not sure what he's done to earn his place at all. There are countless members who are more qualified and trustworthy to have gotten that role. PressF4Respect has a very tarnished history regarding forum behaviour but it's likely that all who applied for the role had that so I'll not comment on it more.

    I don't agree with either of these appointments, nor do I congratulate them on 'earning' their role. C_B is a terrible pick, he has done next to nothing to earn that role.

    Easy to say when you got your rank by nepotism AKA knowing and being buddy-buddy with Vaarka who himself got to own the server by pure previous relations.

    I am so positive and happy about that, it fills me with joy. I am elated that Virtuoso and Ragnar can explain why they chose C_B over me, I really am so positive.

    I actually think RM should get a shot. He has a lot of activity here and has been around and involved enough to know the culture of the community pretty well, based on the statistics I have observed anyway.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence, stranger. ;) That just makes me even more curious who you are, but one thing that I admire in Virtuoso is he aint gonna budge no matter what you throw at him. It's unfortunate that his stubborness has this negative side but it's why he makes a great commander in chief of mods here, so far anyway.

    What I am beginning to see, however, is that he never justifies his decisions and that's where stubborness turns into arrogance instead. We do not need an arrogant leader, merely one with firm beliefs.

    For once I agree with RM. I know that me and him have had our disagreements but even I can agree that this mod decision is a bit weird and there were alot of other more deserving people. In regards to what you mentioned,  I completely agree RM has spent alot of time in this community debating,  voting,  forum posting,  and assisting the mods. I'm pretty surprised RM isn't already a mod to be completely honest. No offense to the new mods or virtuoso but I feel like a mistake was made with not making RM a mod and would like some elaboration.

    Maybe more deserving people didn't DM him on applying. 

    Who would be more deserving?

    If it was RM apart from him.

    I love how you say 'apart from him' as if you are disqualifying me.

    We asked various people before opening this up to that we will not disclose. They rejected the offer.

    I disqualified you because you already picked yourself and from what Pink said I am sure he would pick you over the two.

    You should aim to make it at least 110% true.

    RE: "Greetings! On behalf of the moderation team, I'd like to give a warm welcome to our two new moderators. Christopher_best is being demoted to debate moderator and PressF4Respect is demoted to the forum moderator. Please give them their condolences.
    F for respect



    I'm not following. Is this a promotion or demotion? If a promotion, congratulations to the two!

    Promotion. The demotion there was a lighthearted joke.
