    Just think we need some more full time moderators here.
    I work at night so I am basically stuck in the house all day watching
    Princess movies over and over with my 2 little daughters.
    I have PAST experience as staff on a few other forums.

    Not sure if you are looking but would be available.
    I have a good work ethic and would not let personal feelings
    come in the way of doing my job. Enforcing site rules.

    Maybe a bit of a racist attitude, not so welcome here, by a mod :rolleyes:

    Sorry Gravox, i tried to resist. Delete this post, if truth burn.

    If this forum is going to make racist peeps as mods, i'll keep myself quite far from this forum, be sure.

    Just borderline :)
    But in all seriousness. I am far from a racist.
    I am a NDP Canadian.
    I love culture.
    I take my kids to the PRIDE parade every year.
    Justice for ALL means a lot to me.

    Till when they speak the level of English you like. Right? :rolleyes:
    I guess you're going to delete every post of users without an English mothertongue, right? :rolleyes:
    Sorry pal, everyone of us have a reputation, here :rolleyes:
    I'm the unwelcoming bigger TB contributors, for example.

    There is going to be some major changes here this week.

    For one a mod has been put on a 30 day vacation.

    We need to be all civil towards each other and no waves of attacks no matter the reason.

    @ Barth/nextbike - fair enough.

    I was just offering to help.
    I have been here at ps3crunch from before it was even ps3crunch.
    I hear Barth's concerns and assure him that I can be civil.

    If civil you mean write in a polite way contributor's english sucks, instead of answer, well..
    This forum is quite huge, and there are users from all around the world.
    A racist past doesn't make your position the best choice, some could stay far/ be a lurker, instead of read a bash against his english, ignoring the core of the post.
    I told you , bro. All of us have a reputation here.
    Feel free to answer me "Why, are you better, i saw some of your posts with new users"
    I will answer " Yes, it's true. Sometimes i was unpolite, TB thread put some venom, long ago , reading hax-trolls or people registering just for pretend a game till banned".
    I don't hide my reputation, as much i'm sure i could be a good mod on this forum, based on my knowledge. Surely my attitude should be quite monitored hahahaha :D

    in my experience, applying for the position is usually a bad idea, just be a decent user, demonstrate skills and if the administration feel the need, I'm sure they'll contact you and offer you the position, that said, it's not bad to have the offer out there if they need an extra hand (as I've done offering to janitor the spammy posts) though I'd never ask for the position, as while yes, I've done admin duties on a fuck ton of sites and servers, my skills may not fit the community, and I prefer to just demonstrate my skills (though.. my last 4-5 posts are mainly just stressing how shitty everyones gotten lately so.. that's not such a good demonstration lol)

    Agree. I never saw a forum where an user open a thread asking a mod position and without any proper reason, changed as mod. Expecially on a huge community like this one. A member like Senaxx deserved his new role, for example.

    p.s. I'm sure 100% you're a good canadian citizen, next-bike.

    @ DigiSpook - you/I have more/less done the same thing, although you have demonstrated how funny you are! :p

    @ Barth - same here, but credit to Nextbike for offering to help.

    I seen GraVoX asking to be let go and don't see the other 2 moderators around much. That was my reason.
    My other reason was to help you guys.
    I am also very happy to see Senaxx here. I was one of his biggest supporters on that other site.

    I know your purpose, next-byke. So sad, what happened to the staff here. I'm truly puzzled on how it all happened, like a storm.

    I second (or third) Senaxx. He has experience and I was impressed with how he handled the fallout over at Hax. Although I really really hope GraVoX will return to moderating the forums after his break. Regardless of what happened these past few days, he's still one of the best mods I've ever had pleasure of dealing with. Just to throw the idea out there, if you were going to promote one of the regulars, I'd give my endorsement to gDrive. He's pretty even tempered (No one that I know on this forum has a beef with him), he helps users out and seems to know his stuff, and he's on here all the freaking time. Seriously, that's dedication for ya.
