That just happened to me, too. I'm guessing because a few days ago these forums got spammed like crazy.

Me and a few friends that ran a forum had the same kinda problem. there was just this one bot and it kept spamming over, and over again, makin threads and all sorts. in the end we just gave up, but we didn't really know what to do about the problem.

have to agree with scales on this one. being a mod here would be great but the real reason we come here is to talk about randy. it dosent matter if you are a newbie or a admin.

.........although when rickhawk turned to a mod they got rid of Jamie and Mike so that leaves them a mod short. theres only one way to settle this.

ROCK

PAPER

SCISSORS

SHOOT!!!!!!! :lol:

We were/never are a Mod/Admin short.

Previous lineup:

Smirnoff, Des, Mike, Iron, Jamie, Cableguy, Metal Matt

(Count, 1-2-3-4-5-6-7)

Current lineup:

Smirnoff, Des, Iron, Cableguy, Metal Matt, Loq, Rickhawk

(Count again, 1-2-3-4-5-6-7)

We are NOT looking for another Mod at this time, so people please stop hinting (mass PM'ing) that you want to be one. Time spent here is not the big requirement. The guys chosen all have what it takes (several qualities) and we are happy with them. If we do ever go looking for another, we already have a good list of people we think would be great for the position. It's not a status-thing or "honor" like some people think. it can be a darn pain in the arse at times. There are no hidden privileges or perks in this thing, so be clear on that. Hope this ends that conversation finally.

im pretty sure you had 8 because LoQ was a mod and you didint put him in the previous lineup section. and now you have 7.

Iron i never PMed you once so i could be a mod.
*? i also have no real desire to be one. my previous post was reffering to CliffDimeRandy. Maybe you are reffering to CliffDimeRandy as well but you qouted me so im not sure. if you are then sorry for the missunderstanding.

:roll: While Mike and Jamie were pretty inactive we brought Loq in to cover some of the space. Once it became clear that Mike and Jamie were not going to be that active we brought in Rickhawk so he and Loq take the slots of Mike and Jamie. Understand?

Note I said "people" not "Demon". A few "people" have and I'll leave it at that.

You were "quoted" for the whole "we're a Mod short" thing you said and I filled in the blanks with the rest of my comments to make things clear once and for all for anybody reading.
