    It's like being cool. If you have to ask if you're cool, you're not cool. But just because you don't ask if you're cool, doesn't mean you're cool by default.

    I'm sure Thane_Mantis would like to be a Moderator just so he can Forum Ban VoidMaster and Master of Warring.

    First step to avoiding disputes on a forum: don't go out of your way to acknowledge said disputes. Now hush, before all-out war kicks off.

    Nah, if I became a mod, first and only thing I would do is see if I could unban my main account and go back to using that.
    I miss using it. :(:disappointed:

    If I were a mod with CSS permissions, I'd change the buttons to pineapples.

    Admit it Thane, you just want to join the 10K Posts club. 

    This raises an interesting question; can CMs directly Forum Ban Moderators and strip them of their Moderator status, or do they have to get someone else to do so?

    Pretty sure I made that plan obvious before man lol.
    But in all seriousness, its not just that reason that I want that account back, there are a couple of reasons.

    1) I miss my Unicorn Overlord Status.
    2) I miss my high post count as it were. I was proud of the work I put into that account and I feel like my work has been nullified to an extent by banning my account. My capacity to use that account was taken away from me by an external body and I was basically forced to abandon it against my own volition, which I absolutely hate.

    3) Convenience. When I had that account active I was able to go about my regular forum-going whilst simultaneously playing the game if need be. Like if Facebook stopped working or something along those lines.

    4) The capacity edit old posts. When that account was active it meant all my posts were editable by me so I could update and make corrections. If I ever find myself reading old posts I noticed mistakes, discrepancies, etc that I don't like and want to correct. Or in some cases there are threads that are rendered outdated and/or incorrect as time goes on.
    E.g., my Shadow Ops thread. If that account was still active I could have updated it rather than need to create a new one if I had wanted to continue making use of that FAQ thread. Now I can't do this.

    I ain't lying here, I legit hate the fact I lost that account. I was generally quite proud of the work and my contributions and posts on the forums (most of em at least, there are a few regrets) and to an extent I feel like it was all wasted. Kinda makes me regret making the post I did for my 8026th post. Oh well, sh*t happens. Nothing I can do about it.

    Nah man, pretty sure the CM themselves would handle that task. If a mod were to do something that caused KIXEYE to deem them improper material for Moderation Status or ill-suited for the task in any capacity, I imagine it would be treated as an administrative issue of sorts, as mods are technically considered representatives of the company in some form if my understanding of the position is correct.

    So yeah, I doubt that's the sort of task a CM would delegate to someone else. As they are the final decider on who becomes a mod as my understanding goes, they themselves would be considered responsible for taking action against the offending moderator.

    I suppose we will need a mods final call on this. Hyperius? Am I right here? How would such a situation be handled, if you would permit us to ask.

    That post was focking hilarious and true, you shouldn't regret making that post, just hate Kixeye for banning it.

    Ya know its funny really. Back when I made that post it was more intended as something for humour. At the time of writing it, I don't know if your aware of this as I believe your more of a VC player correct? Anyways, at the time of writing that post it was intended to be light hearted and humorous to make people smile as the community on the WC Forums was in uproar over yet another stupid decision KIXEYE had made.

    Specifically the Missiles as mentioned by ShadowKiller in the BV Episode itself and the title. Anyways, since then I've come less to view it as a joke myself and more of a means of commentary on KIXEYE and how they tend to handle things. Alot of people felt that post was only funny but ironically accurately reflective of KIXEYE. Its a shame really. Sometimes some folk really cannot handle the truth.

    Careful Thane,  I'm on about as thin ice as possible right now.  So it's all Daisy's and Rose's for me.  But sometimes the truth hurts.  When we get penalized for pointing out the truth there is an underlying problem.

    But it's all good.  Kixeye only produces Daisy's and Rose's.  They've never done anything that could be misconstrued as anything else.  I love Kixeye!  

    Are we having fun yet?

    Daisy's!  I'm pushing up Daisy's!  Cause everyone loves Daisy's!  Everything is perfect in this game and I love Daisy's

    Moderators keep the forums in check by moving threads to the correct places, answering questions, and disciplining offenders.

    No definitely not @Hyperius. He's the worst Mod 100%. Just terrible. No sense of humor whatsoever.
