Flat Earth Veterans
« on: October 25, 2012, 06:12:11 PM »
So by now you've probably noticed that we have a new membergroup, the Flat Earth Veterans. Basically, this is a sort of 'community watch'-style initiative, whereby some members who post regularly in the upper boards are being given the powers to remove spam, lock/merge/move/split topics, and generally keep things tidy.


They can't ban people or delete posts completely, nor can they moderate outside Flat Earth General, Flat Earth Q&A, and Flat Earth Debate. They cannot issue bans, but they can request them if they feel someone's repeated petty offences have not been picked up on. Accordingly, they can also issue warnings to that effect. Fret not about power-abuses. I'll be pretty quick to remove anyone who gets out of line. By the same token, we'll probably add more members to this group at some point.


The basic idea is to give some of the regulars a little more influence over the tone of discussion upstairs. It's provisional and experimental, but disasters aside, is a long-term thing.

I for one welcome our new lesser overlords who bring the force of the master's whip upon the insolent.
I am a terrible person and I am a typical Blowhard Liberal for being wrong about Bom.

I am offended by the name.
Vongeo is a wanker, he wears a wanker hat; he always smells like urine and he thinks the Earth is flat.

No longer is this sentence is cut in half. Jekra!

Are you a vet?  Just wondering.

What does having to be a Vet have to being a Veteran of the FES?

Nothing.  I was trying to figure out why he is offended.

You are more of a flat earth veteran then the noob group.
Why do we fall back to earth? Because our weight pushes us down, no laws, no gravity pulling us. It is the law of intelligence.

Although I'd never willingly be an actual moderator here because I value what little sanity I have, if there's ever a Veterans type group for the lower fora I wouldn't mind chipping in.  It's meant to be sort of a more passive moderator position, right?  Like it's not our responsibility to seek out bad stuff, but if we happen to see something we can do something about it?  I can do that.

WELCOME MODERATORS! Please feel free to dis-include the Buggers for the mainstream agenda.
I am happy there are some SANE folks in this world- MEN, whom I ADMIRE, who still SPEAK THE TRUTH.
Hail, THEM!

I guess this is a thing we'll need to address in this post-tfes.org/Ukraine-Crimea world!
