I would like to say Thank you to all the Mods and Admins on the ESF forums. You guys have to deal with a bunch of crap that goes on around here and you guys handle things very nicely. I am sorry that not everyone on the forums can be mature which makes you guys babysitters but still, without you guys, this forum would have been crap. Thank you for dealing with all the garbage.

Very kind words, Kidboy. I'm sure the rest of the moderation staff appreciates it as much as I do. However, you'll have to try a lot harder if you want 1.3 early. XD

Actually this wasn't an attempt to get 1.3. I'm not addicted like most of the people here. I just wanted to thank you guys for dealing with so much stuff. It shows how much you guys care about your jobs. Thank you very much.

No problem Kidboy. We work very hard to produce an enjoyable mod. Its threads like this that give us that extra push to continue our work. Thanks Kidboy.

By we, I mean me. I single-handedly created ESF. How? Time machine. If you dont believe me, ask me.

I'd like to take this oppurtunity to congratuate Pain on becoming an admin...mysteriously...overnight...without being a supermod beforehand, thus strengthening my belief that he's sleeping with someone behind the scenes :O

Pain graduated when he became a member of the development team silly.

I appreciate it. The comments wouldn't hold any ground if we were, say, being paid to do this, but it's just a time investment to keep things running more smoothly than they might be otherwise. We get a lot of criticisms for being too strict and over-staffed, but when I visit more leniant forums with only a handful of admins I'm used to seeing ridiculous amounts of spam and endless trolling flamewars. I like the way we have things set up here.

It has something to do with his pointless Public Relations status =P. Not to worry, though! He doesn't really have any admin privaledges due to some little bug, only the name change, so we're safe for now... but he did spy into my signature for the image change code... :(.

Oh, and thanks for the thanks. Make sure not to judge admins/mods/team members based on how they act in the Force Pit as it's the get away for everyone.

Don't be silly :p

I gave Pain admin access due to his somewhat-recently obtained role as the Public Relations official for ESF. Masta and I felt that it was a logical course of action. Since forum competitions and the Force Pit are, in a sense, his responsibility, the extra bells and whistles avaiable to admins will come in handy for him.

...but don't expect him to go around banning people - there was a long and frank discussion held about that ;)

I agree - thanks for your kind words, KidBoy. It is gratifying to know that there are people who appreciate the often misunderstood role that we were asked to take on.

I'd also like to say that Ravendust could be correct. I am one great piece of ass. ;)

I should point out that this has been taken care of as of last Sunday night. I've got plenty of privileges now. . . :devgrin: Watch yourself bish!
Though I should also point out that Majin is correct, I won't be flexing the admin muscles for anything much other than Public Relations.

Hope that answers all the questions regarding my overnight leapfrog over supermod. /me makes room for other mods to come in and reply.

You guys don't even need to thank me at all. Just doing your job and knowning you guys do it with a smile on your face is good enough for me. Hope this little thread cheered you guys up too. Keep on truckin my friends.

Said to you or not, all the longtime players, both skilled and unskilled, are grateful for what you've done, even if they're hesitant to say it. You're doing a great thing by making this mod and putting up with a lot of crap from the community. While not many people say this due to the fact that it feels like generic arse-kissery, a great deal imply it by continuing to stay with the mod through thick and thin. Anyone who enjoys the mod and what you're doing for them is saying thanks every time they play, and every time they post constructively. Still, I suppose it must be nice to see it offically once in a while.

So yeah. Thanks.

Keep on keepin' on, you guys do a fine job. The "higher level of administration," as far as I see it, only betters the community. It's not one of the masses of nonsense and flames that too many Internet forums are.

Thank you for thanking me for thanking them about thanking them by the thanker of the thanking the admins thread for thanking the mods/admins :). Wait, what?

Anyways, thanks for being there, I <3 you guys. I'm about to cry... well, im really about to do homework, but that ruins the moment, so cry it is.

:').

I'm the reason we still have mods and admins. I make sure they keep their skills sharp and eyes focused. :)

Well you, me and others. I kinda feel bad each time I do a spam thread or partake in a spam thread....
