    Default Mod love

    I've been on gitp for a bit over a year now. I've been on multiple corners of the internet before. I've also had the challenge of moderating a forum for an mmorpg. This is one of the saner corners of the internet. It's one of a few places where I've seen something like the LGBTAitp thread exist and remain relatively sane. And where I haven't had trouble for being a female gamer.

    I know not everyone agrees with everything you guys do. I don't. But - I love you guys. So here's a plate of internet cookies:

    Mod rock. They've been kindly lenient to my noob transgressions, but I'd like them in any circumstances.

    Ooh hey, the cookies all rolled 20!

    On a more serious note, I suspect the state of the community does a fair bit to help the mods set the tone they have, because if they were having to fight and sanction everyone they'd burn out pretty quickly and lose their tempers more often, leading to the possibility of them acting in a much less professional way...

    GitP is one of the best forums I've ever been to, and while a large part of that is the community, the contribution of the mods can not be overlooked(who, in part, belong to the community as well). So yes, props to the mods from doing a good job - I know from first hand experience how difficult moderating can be.

    This is the most fascinating thread!

    I also love GitP for its niceness and wellmoderated...osity... It's the only forum I've ever been able to stick.

    That entire banana thread was fascinating, especially Serp's contribution. While I have never eaten banana underwear of my mother's, I do agree -- wait. I cannot in good conscience discuss bananas publicly.
