RE: Resigning?
I don't know; I've read a lot of what he's said and a lot of people around here seem to like him, but I've never actually seen him.

Plus, he's apparently gone and may or may not be returning some day.

I'd say he's one crucifixion away from being ol' Jesus himself.

Yeah, 'cause you, as I've had occasion to point out before, are one sick puppy. So obviously, you're not doing a very good job as a vet Laughat

I don't know much about the history of the site and the forum - only what I've heard Seth hint at on the podcast - but from what I gather; it's only a few years old. And yet, the community is so tight and everyone's place seems long-established. So way back, in the begining, when the world was young and the genesis of forum life was just bubbling in the primordial sludge, who operated this whole thing? And how did our current admins/mods come to be?
My understanding of primeval events is that when Seth started his website three years ago, the forum part was just sort of an add-on that he didn't really put much effort into. It was so over-run with bots and spam that it was virtually unusable. Stark Raving took it upon himself to contact Seth and ask for permission to have moderator powers to clean up the place. They became friends and Seth put his full trust into Stark to run the place as he saw fit.

As Stark put it, Seth handed him the keys to the forum, and although Seth suggest Stark run the forum "more like a dictatorship than a democracy," Stark still enlisted the help of folks like Unbeliever, Buddy Christ and Observer who all became early allies in the effort and probably some others that I'm leaving out or don't know. Along the way DeepThought became the Tech Guru and Stark began adding Moderators to help out, all chosen by him.

About this time last year, Stark wanted to take a break from Admin duties, so he put Lucradis in charge. Luc did a great job for about 8 or 9 months or so before things IRL made him need to step down from responsibilities so Stark came back as Admin, hoping to enlist someone else to replace him. Sometime this past Fall, he asked me to be the Admin and I replied that I would only accept if he remained as a co-Admin. He said he would for a while, and I guess that while finally came to a close. So for good or bad, I'm your huckleberry along with the mods and vets who make up the Forum Management Team.

Your version is completely true, I just filled in the details a bit more. Big Grin

So, my Lord Erxy, can Duke Luc fill me in on the technical/software details so I don't have to do evil experiments?

And who better to cut efficiently cut him down a notch or two?

A single action is worth more than the words it takes to describe it.
