... and I'm still stuck here! :O

Since TJ has ninja'd back into the shadows for the time being, I'll be taking over some of his duties as head admin. This means the following:

If you and another admin/mod are having difficulties resolving an issue, come talk to me.
If you've tried to bring something to our attention but it seems that we're slow getting around to it, feel free to send me a <s>bribe</s> PM. If it's really urgent, look for me on AIM.
Got some overarching complaint about how this site is run? Chuck your rotten tomatoes in my direction. (But do it in an intelligent and tactful manner, eh? :P)

In any case, I'd like to emphasize that we've still got a fine group of other mods and admins around here helping out. I know that keeping track of who and what might've gotten slightly confusing over the years, so here's a handy refresher:

Moderators - can lock/move/split threads, warn/ban members from certain features of the site, handle delete requests, moderate opinions/QCs/journal entries on a need-to-do basis, etc.
- Kalium: epic punster with a knack for getting stuff done
- downwithpants: i like pastrami [jasper: stop editing my posts, you!] XD
- Savia: our resident sexy British accent
- Vlad G Pohnert: the wise old man who keeps us in line. Not really a forum mod, but handles things pertaining to the database, like anime confirmation
- plus a few super-helpful ninjamods!

Administrators - can do everything mods do, plus create/move forums, deal with website bugs, handle large upload requests, approve banners, send newsletters, post stuff to site news, etc.
- Corran: our new donation man! Give him a little while to sort things out, then contact him if you have questions about donations.
- dokidoki: loveable code monkey :)
- plus Tsunami Jones and derobert, who are mostly inactive but still around from time to time
- and of course Phade, the mysterious overlord who owns us all


And finally, to the gazillions of you who are about to post "godix for admin" - keep believing, haha. Your dreams might come true some day... who knows. :o

PS: submit to the logo contest!

First of all, congrats on your new "job" Jasper! Seriously, you've done a great job with a whole bunch of things in the last year, especially the VCA, and I think you've got the cool head and compassion this place needs.

I do have an overarching complaint which doesn't necessarily apply now - but I would like all the mods to keep the points I brought up here in mind.
http://www.animemusicvideos.org/phpBB/v ... c&start=24
There have been some decisions among the administration which I have disagreed with in the past while, and some which I thought have been counterproductive and harmful. There have been too many cases where the administration took a hands-off approach instead of taking on active intervention and advocacy. Please be as compassionate as you can. The reason I say this again is because, like I'm sure quite a few here, I genuinely care about the forums - and I'm not a mod, so I can't do what you guys can to foster the community. You have my respect for that.

So, new era or not, I wish the administration the best of luck. I'm confident you guys will do a great job if you remember it's all for the sake of the community, and we appreciate the work you do. So go forth and dew!

Welcome to power. I'd like to redeem my friendship commodity points in exchange for a Imperial Overlord status. With a free market empire spanning 5 continents, it just seems appropriate.

Great. She got to the point of kinda sorta not really definately never a chance in hell point of extending hope for my <strike>deityhood</strike> admining. Then you had to go remind her of the single biggest piece of drama I've ever caused on the site. Thanks Otohiko, you prick.
