It appears our good friend, Axel L, has ascended to the rank of moderator. We must all now bow down to our new overlord!

OK, in all seriousness, congratulations Axel. Well done man on making it as a moderator.

    Thanks a lot. It's still a bit surprising to see that I have managed to ascend into higher ranks recently. On top of that, the off topic will now be protected.

    Thanks a lot.
    You're welcome. Congrats on the promotion. Nice to see someone dependable make it as a mod. And one of our own otters as well.

    When did KIXEYE make the offer to you to become a moderator? Or did they just spring it on you like when MX sprung it on me when he made me an administrator for the X-Commanders Facebook page, lol.

    Indeed, that is good news. Means we need not call in outsiders to help clean up any mess some spammer leaves.
    And you can unban my account for me as well lol. Hooray!

    It will at least allow for some form of moderation over here. Now, it will be much more difficult to walk over here unnoticed.

    The process of joining the moderator team did actually take few days mainly due to the fact of finding a moment where I can be online at the same time as the CM. Like you may already know, the process includes signing a NDA and reading through few documents.
    And you can unban my account for me as well lol. Hooray!
    There are some limits on what is being allowed to do as a moderator. Just saying.

    Ah, Im sure it'll be fine. O_T never gets any attention from anyone except us and the occasional wandered. Beyond that one time 2 CM's showed up to bid Hyperius farewell, we've been long abandoned by just about everyone. At my last count there's maybe 9 of us here.

    Yeah, I remember. If I remember right its been mentioned in the past by other moderators that there's an NDA to be signed? What about the documents, whats inside them? Any specifics of even general things you're permitted to tell us, or is it all top secret? Also, out of curiosity, what made you willing to sign the NDA?

    I don't think I'm allowed to disclose the content inside of the documents. The NDA was pretty standardized NDA.

    A pity. I'd very much like to get a look at one of those to see what it is mods have to sign.

    Doesn't really answer my question Axel. Yeah, maybe it was a standard NDA (if standards for them do exist.) But what made you willing to sign it to become a moderator? Doesn't it bother you that you're having your right to speak restricted to a degree?

    Everything comes with sacrifices and that is completely natural. The NDA won't bother me too much as I do still have a lot of freedom remaining.

    Fair enough I suppose. Out of curiosity, what do you feel you get out of the deal when becoming a moderator? Seems like something of a thankless job in my book. Aside from some new powers (what powers do you now have by the way?) what is there in it for you?
    I know the standard moderation powers include the following:
    • Moving Threads
    • Locking Threads
    • Super Likes (one like from a mod is worth 5 likes if I remember right according to Hyperius)
    • Disciplining Forum Users through bans and jails.
    Anything else mods can do that we don't know about?

    There are also few additional powers like being able to add notes to accounts and to split/merge threads.

    Not really, that should be everything other than the ability to edit, delete, pin and sink forum threads.

    Sink thread do only mean that replies won't cause the thread to return to the top of the list of discussions.

    Four minutes ago. Working in government (and sushi!) and going to school for a degree in finances have sucked the humanity and fun from me.

    I supplement with a TON of alcohol and these games are not the games to play while drunk.

    Also with your newfound mod powers, if you're super nosy I left behind an Easter egg for future moderators to find.  ;)
