New Admin?
With KC gone, who's the runner up? Doesn't MyBB software need an admin at all times?

Deep Thought has the software part covered. And, you can leave a message board on autopilot but it's not good for the community.

You forget that we have a second admin - Aurora. KC's replacement is between Aurora and Seth. Meanwhile, Aurora is admin anyway.

Oh yeah, my bad Aurora.

I thought Seth didn't want any part of the forums?

All supermods here have admin access.

Admin role mostly defines what you do from a forum politics standpoint. eg: only admins ban users (spambots are different), even though supermods have the power it shouldn't be used.

That makes more sense, I guess you all trust each other. I never give anyone admin access that doesn't require the permissions lol

The same goes for regular mods.

Remember when I banned two human accounts and both admins said "Well done"?

Good times. Laugh out load

Mods often swing the ban hammer with the proper authority from the admin.

It's an odd sensation the first time; it's like going into the death chamber to perform an execution... it's in a specific area and there's a strange solemnity about it.

Luckily, my first time was a nazi ... it was a relief.

Was that your way of submitting your application?

I can't help thinking ... too soon.

In fact this thread is kinda too soon.

Well, the longer one is attached to a group - even virtually - the more it feels like a real community. No one wants to disallow or forbid someone to be a part of an organic community; it's just sometimes necessary.

However, the very idea of progress often means accepting the fringe to challenge growth and expand diversity. Evolution doesn't come about easily. Wink
