Undead Icon (War3) Good news everyone! The slime is flowing again!

We have two new moderators - Kellick and Nazja. Say hello!

As most folks on here already know, I've been advocating the idea that we add some new members to the site (mostly to help out for when other people are busy and to just generally be a voice of reason) The process of deciding who to add was long -there were/are many capable people who I believe would have the right temperament for the role- but the two names that consistently floated to the top were Kellick and Nazja. I believe they are both talented, empathetic, reasonable and they have been great contributors to the community over the years - and I know they are both well-suited for the (fairly minimal) responsibilities of moderating.

So I will post this thread now before the news breaks elsewhere, but I will have more to say if anyone has any questions/comments. New mods, woop woop!

Kellick > Nazja.

Canadian Power.

I'd say grats, but you got a thankless job and will only get bitched at. So instead, I will say...

'Sucks to be youuuuu'.

And all it takes is a tactically calculated "for the Horde" rallying the troops to make them all think "OMG she really does care!"

Tome of Knowledge

Moar behind-the-scenes gossip: when I originally pitched my idea to the Maker's Terrace, I had pushed for three moderators being added - mostly on the precedent of three being added last time (Rev, HalfElf and your humble peon.) But other site-staff (rightly) talked me down from that position as it was too ambitious and there likely wasn't a need to add three people (although it was agreed we should promote new folks - just not that many)

So back when I still thought that we should three add new peeps, there was no difficulty (in my mind) of who the first two should be (hi Nazja and Kellick!), I had struggled with the third person. There were a few people that I believed would be/are competent enough to be mods - but they had expressed publicly that they likely wouldn't have the time for the extra work (e.g. Hlaalustyle (sp?) and ijffdrie (sp?!)) Then there were a couple of other people that pro-actively messaged me expressing interest in the position (C9H20 and Anansi) - and I still do agree that they would have been fine in that role, but it was agreed that two mods would probably be enough. And so I had to regretfully reject C9H20 - and gladly throw Anansi under the bus.

Some insight into my thought-process in this matter! More to come when I am less sleepy.

I want the new moderators to know that Im here to talk if they need it, but also that they should never cross me, lest they meet the most unfortunate of fates.

It involves Aqua and Disney.

I had such plans! I would have done so much good! There are features and opportunities for this site that only I have the vision to realize!

But sure, if you want to go with the safe and popular choice, I guess Kellick and Nazja will do.

Yay. Another person who hates me is a mod. Feels like my head just got put into a guillotine.

While I'm not philosophically unsympathetic to oblivion as a cause, your constant endorsement of it may have jeopardized your chances. It's not a stance everyone appreciates.

I'm reasonably certain Nazja isn't actually capable of hate, so you're probably fine.
