Moderator Crisis

Post by Jagtai » Tue Aug 23, 2016 11:46 am

In view of the current situation, the Administration (Admins & Mods) have come to the following decision:

Effective immediately, the Administrators has been granted emergency powers as Moderators. This is an INTERIM solution until we have solved this temporary crisis.

Thank you.

So, with all due respect, why don't you just open up the polls for nominations and we can start the process of getting another Moderator voted in? That seems like the most feasible course of action right now.

I understand the need for the temporary moderator powers. I guess I'm just not sure why we are considering this a crisis nor the problem with solving it. It seems, to me at least, there is a very clear path as to how to rectify the shortage of mods.

Let's nominate (for a week I believe is how we did it last time) and then everyone votes. Boo yah! Problem solved!

I am a genius. No need to thank me. :lol:

Because it lies within the realm of assumption that someone on a Star Wars forum would get a Star Wars reference? :oldrazz:

EDIT:

This is not the place for nominations.

I would like to refer everyone here: http://www.sw-e.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=12120

Nominations will be opened sometime today.

You don't think losing two mods in less than a week constitutes a crisis? Geez, there's just no pleasing some people.

I was being a bit sarcastic Jag. Given the comments that were made prior I figured I'd throw a bit of humor into it all.

Do Vikings even have 'Mornings'?

I always sort of figured they just rolled out of one blackout drunk pillage right into the next one?

We would...but our Viking wives don't appreciate us leaving them alone with our Viking children, while we pillage, plunder and generally have fun.

So, yes, I have mornings. Mind you, my fuse is even shorter in the morning than the rest of day (however unlikely that may seem).

Except technically he's not a Viking, his country "technically" isn't part of what used to be known as Vikings...but that's here nor there...

It seems like the Danes would know...

Heck, even Wikipedia doesn't try to deny it.

Yeah, when I dropped by there earlier this spring there was most certainly a theme..

FYI - joking about Danes not being Vikings to Danes is asking for trouble. We have no sense of humour in that area. :mad1:

On the bright side, you can joke about everything else relating to Danes, and we'll probably agree :P

We will open for nominations tomorrow, Friday 26th of August. They will run until Friday the 2nd of September, after which elections will be held.

The voter registration thread will remain open until the 2nd as well, after which we close down registration.
