    has anyone been able to listen to the podcast that Gabe tweeted? I only get a 2-second sound effect when I play it.

    I'm pretty sure they took it down. I mean, they were hesitant to put it up in the first place. Then I'm sure when PA linked to it on their front page, it probably drove a shitload of traffic to their site.

    Yeah they took it down. I read their forum about it and they weren't too happy. It was all very dramatic. All of their forum members (even evander apparently) just hating on gabe and tycho a lot. Their description of what went down was different from the one Gabe and tycho posted. Just kind of weird.

    Don't forget the part where they throw insults at the guys wives. I'm sure they had a lot to do with the podcast going sour.

    When was Evander a mod here?

    And apparently he finds us all awful. I guess this is why I haven't seen him post in a thread in awhile.

    this was mostly a misunderstanding between two groups and I think it's really unfortunate that the fans that weren't even involved in the whole scenario keep dragging this up and trying to make one side or the other out to be the villains

    just shut up about it and let the whole episode be forgotten

    He was a mod in G&T when I was lurking before I ever registered.

    There are so many former mods, but it makes sense as I'd imagine with how long the board has been around you guys must get burnt out after awhile.

    seriously

    links are all in the PA newsposts if you want to see what's happening

    but there's no point rehashing it

    no matter what you want to say on the matter someone else has already said it

    including telling you to stop talking about it

    cyclical

    I like our mods, I'd to see one leave. But from what I can see most of the mods who have stepped back haven't stopped posting completely either so even if one stopped being a mod odds are they'd still be a forumer.

    I think it's more that until more recently the criteria to be a mod was looser and the rules weren't as well defined so it was probably more of a popularity contest and you had more highly dubious decisions like Dr. Dizaster (may not be spelling that right) which most of you probably haven't even heard of.

    With more attention paid to the forums and getting Tube and AlphaMonkey to take care of overseeing them, this is a tighter ship and there's no more, "hey this guy really wants to be a mod and he seems pretty cool and he's on often enough so sure why not?"

    I keep wondering if I would be a good mod on here

    like, if I were ever asked to take someone's place

    and I get kinda excited about it

    but then I realize how big the shoes I am filling are

    and then I remind myself that there are plenty of people who would make better mods than me before I would ever come up on the list

    it's kinda like Battlestar Galactica in that sense

    while that's partially right, it's more that we have higher standards for who is level-headed enough to be a mod

    there's a couple conversations going on in the mod forum and it's really hard to find someone who'll be a mod, because most people are smarter than me and use their communication and conflict resolution skills to get work instead of fuck around on a video game forum

    FALLACY!

    for the most part you would not see these people use skills relevant to what you are looking for because someone with a level head is also going to know that the mods are there to settle forum conflicts and it's really not something to go all vigilante on

    so really if a conflict comes up these people are going to be the first people to disengage and walk away... rather than try to mediate the situation on their own

    (I almost typed Batman instead of vigilante

    I've been with Blake too long)

    most of the mods are grandfathered in, which means that either they have enough time to mod because of their work (me, larlar) or they just fuck off on the job (everyone else)

    also we rarely demod people due to inactivity. captain k had to be gone for like a year before we did him.

    dammit Dru I'm trying not to get in trouble

    look if I stay off their radar it's good enough for me

    but generally speaking if I like a mod and feel like their time should be appreciated then I will damn sure say so

    The year I did forum battles I really hoped I would come up against him. He was singing, I was sermoning...alas, poor K, I knew him not at all.
