As you've all probably figured out now, LW left the keys in my mail slot on his way out the door.

LW was a great mod, and there's nothing I can do to replace him. Frankly I'm not going to try, since he had his own way of doing things and I'm sure I'll figure out my thing eventually. That said, I really enjoyed the atmosphere he cultivated here. I'm not going to try to continue his reign, but I'll sure as gently caress emulate a lot of it. I liked being in a forum that had a nice, hands off mod that was there to step on the biggest fuckups, and that's where I see myself going with all this.

At least until I go mad with power.

I'm leaving all of LW's old rules and policies in place for now. I have a few thoughts on how I might tinker with them, but anything like that will be done slowly. No need to gently caress up a good thing.

edit: mmmmm... first stickie. Yeah, the power's going to go to my head quick.

Also sexism, religious bias, jingoism, and so on. Don't do it, people!

Dogs, don't do it either, even if the police man really tries to train you to do it.

Since historically the news/laws thread has morphed into shitposting over time, I kind of appreciate it being ghettoized in there.

I'm almost certain King Hotpants was modding it before he was but yeah Wax was modding a long drat time. 10+ years at least.

No, LW was mod since TFR was started in 2004. KHP was co-mod for awhile but due to ~*~*~forum drama~*~*~ that was only for 6 months or so.

Yeah. There's a "guns news thread" that I started a while back for if you want to talk about news that's gun specific, like ruger's newest pistol or whatever. Everything else just gets dumped in the swamp because that's the only way to keep the fighting quarantined.

I saw a prob from LW against Right Arm about a goodbye gift. Then I checked in horror to see..and yes LW was still mod. Ok good.

Then I see Cyrano on the throne of skulls. Which is cool and good because I was afraid LW would peace out and we'd get some dipshit GBS reject for a mod instead.
