And Irish gave him those powers (to keep this on topic)

 

Well drifter, from the horses mouth, arch, he said he asked nick about moving those posts and i quote from arch "I asked Nick, got the usual 'shrug, it's your corner, whatever' I sent it to Crap Shack."

 

Now, fuck off until you're gonna contribute something other than whining and absence.

Love you too :cheers:

 

Joel's contributions were no better than anyone else's, they were usually worse, and quite often petty, and will regularly follow the theme of: "everything I believe is better than what you may think and no evidence or logical reasoning will change my mind, so let me just keep repeating it until you give up;" the only thing that was impressive was the sheer quantity of shit he could fling and all that would do is confuse whatever issue or false hero he decided to worship that day so no one could finish and he could publicly claim and wallow his victory.

 

Concerning the rest of your post, the only thing I have to add is that Joel is the only one who has ever fucked with me with his all-powerful super duper mod powers, ever. I don't know how well you know Joel but I've known him for years before I joined this message board and if you don't think Arch can be petty, then you don't know Arch. More than once I've expected to see Joel being thrown off Bishop's and Gunsmith's balcony for being an arrogant, petty, vindictive douche bag; and it was usually over just a game of DnD. Standard operating procedure for Joel, when his is obviously in the wrong is to go defensive, insulting and belligerent. You must admit that Joel is often the first to start name calling and will easily start insulting people at the first crack of his fallible logic and whatever discussion he is in, real or virtual, will quickly go to shit.

Oh fucking stick your levity where the sun doesn't shine. We don't like eachother, at least act the part instead of this 'what did I do to deserve this?' crap.

 

I never said he wasn't petty, I just never saw the guy shooting below the belt is all, which is more than can be said for Jax. And trust me, come Hondoscon I can just about guarantee we'll mix it up and then you'll see what being fucked with by superduper mod powers really is.

So just what is your definition of hitting below the belt? Getting personal, editing my shit and not tell me, not letting me play in any of your reindeer games? Boo-fucking-hoo. Ban me, ignore me, call me names, come after me in the middle of the night, or say that to my face, I don't care what you do, just don't think that everything you believe about your friends, butt-buddies, or hero's is true. Defending Arrogance or Hypocrisy makes me sick.

Good to see you're being mature in the face of fact.

 

You are aware of the irony of telling me to fuck off and stop whining, and then complaining about my lack of maturity when I say: "No," right?

Well, to be fair, you've done nothing really but whine since you've come back. And then when i call you on it, you're douchbaggery exceeds expectations...

 

Anyhoo, my last post in here...

 

Nick, uh.... uhm.... er.... I hear he wants to be a televangelist

Let's continue this in FC shall we? Then I'll tell you what makes me sick.

 

Dr G- We're sorry. *runs out squeeling*

Realistically most of us(and pardon my speaking for the Vox Populi) don't have a lot of forum experience. We came to Hondos when the idea was fresh and never left. 'Never underesytimate the strangely Magnetic pull of Salvation Hondos'. Therefore, I for one have no real yardstick of what an admin should be, and am therefore perfectly happy with the way things flow and how you em, facilitate that flow.

 

I can't agree more. Before Isa introduced me to the wonder that is Hondo's, I had NEVER heard of a message board let alone posted on one...to me, Nick's way is the only way and I really have no complaints thus far...

Since the topic has come up here, I want to say to everyone... If anyone of the other admins in Politics messes with your posts the way Drifter says his posts have been messed with, please report same to me.

 

I was not aware of what Drifter said went down in February, or before that, with his sincere on-topic posts getting crapshacked and I would not have allowed it.

 

Nick, decentralization of authority is a very good idea. One of the smartest things you ever did was make boardmembers responsible for little areas. I've been to lots of other boards where they've got a hundred thousand members and only 1 or 2 admins and the place feels too 'topdown'

 

Admittedly, those were mostly Yaoi porn boards, but the point still stands.

k here's my 2c

 

Nick, over years bar the great crash has done a great job, and perhaps some dodgy handling of fight club and given modships to certain people has tainted that slightly, but Hondos is still a relatively young community which will evolve over time, i think if we are truly to be a "community" we need to be less reliant on NIck. You need to share the load where required, and personally i think you need more deputies to get a more balanced approach to things.

 

I missed the whole arch thing, but i have found his Dr Coxian approach to most threads tiresome and repeatative at best over the years, in fact i generally tend to ignore his point of view, and i've been round here a long time and remember well when Jax was the nemesis to most with his better than thou attitude, while he has mellowed the comparisons between him and arch are there. They could've been seperated at birth in my opinion. And having read the threads in question, its fucking pathetic, whats the saying "don't argue with an idiot, they'll drag you down to their level and beat you!" its an internet forum, where OPINIONS] are exchanged, what arch or jax or whoever says is not gospel.

 

I think hondos has become too divided to be considered fun anymore, there are too many clicks, and there are people have such brown noses its bullshit. We need more disquiet rather than feigned tolerance. I know i'm not a huge poster this weather but that is in part because a lot of people on here irritate me and i'm not going to waste my free time reading that or scouring through reams of stuff to post on.

 

Re Sig, he's a top bloke and he will be missed if indeed he is gone for good.

 

Also the Hondos Irish Chapter are the main reason i post here, thats it, before it was fun, now its just a way for me to keep in touch with the guys. Skeets another top bloke and has been an active poster over the years, had my back on the acalis issue, and often posts funny shit, funnier than 2T!

 

These days i'm more a lurker occasionally than anything else, tis funny how this place has changed, but c'est la vie i suppose.

appreciated. mebbe i do need more of em but arent you afraid that'd turn into too many chiefs, not enough indians? i kinda am.

but if youve got a solid nomination for one, im all ears.

ive always appreciated you saying such, but you do see the irony in that coming from the de facto head of the Irish Chapter, yes?

on this, you know we're agreed.

hey, i make new topics, events and the like so its fun again, but if its the season for BS (and youve been here with me weathering a few of these) you know the best i can usually manage is a werewolf game or something else till the storm passes.

 

i really respect your input wayne, anything concrete or ideas, you know you got my attention.

I appreciate that i'm the defacto head of the IC, but as i said, hondos is a medium of communication between people who met through hondos and now offline would class each other as mates. The clicks add to the community i concede that point but its the brownnosing and teabagging of certain members that irks me. Where i feel its not needed, have we all become desperate attention whores?

 

I know you try man, just saying is all. Maybe we should have a game of WW!!!!

 

Well for deputies you should have one from each continent in my opinion. Hondo's has enough active members to have four deputies in addition to yourself imo.

Ah flattery will get you everywhere!

I'd throw my hat in the ring yeah, do we have any on in Asia, surely our oz connection could manage that <cough> skeet <cough>

 

Cos then they're be no favourites!!

 

And in fairness Aarty ran a tight ship last time, my epic games are homage to the awesome games dante used to run.

^_^ I liked yours better...

 

I also agree we need something to lighten up the mood in these hard times (bot in real & 'net life)...ANYTHING at the moment will do...

I don't play favorites as a Global mod, but SOF is right. One or two more may fit the bill. Although at the moment all Jax and I are really doing is merging threads that need to be merged, helping out the new peoples, etc. Which most of us do in our respective corners and as long-time members. now if Nick would trust us with some more responsibilities, that would be sweet! and scary? haha Definitely SoF and Skeet would be awesome to add to the crew!

 

 

I'm down for a WW game or anything else! All this drama is draining, lol.

yeah, another werewolf game would be great.

 

also the hondies were pretty fun last year.

All in favor of a new WW game?

 

Also, the Hondies isn't to far off.
