    Default Welcome New Mods!

    Giant in the Playground now has seven new moderators! Please join us in welcoming them in this thread. These new moderators have been chosen through a very careful selection process and have endured a rigorous training process. They are now in a live training period (as not all technical controls could be demonstrated), and they now act with full modly authority - please heed their official comments and rulings.

    Our newest Moderators (listed alphabetically) and their assigned forums:
    • CTurbo (The Great Mod in the Sky/Nobody in the Playground) - Gaming
    • flat_footed (The Fullmetal Mod/Alchemist In The Playground) – Gaming/PbP
    • jdizzlean (The Mod Life Crisis/Nerdomancer In The Playground) - Gaming
    • Peelee (The Mod on the Silver Mountain/Dragon In The Playground) – Comics; Discussion
    • pirate ninja (The Modly Roger/Pirate In The Playground) – Comics; Discussion
    • truemane (Metamagic Mod/Archmage In The Playground) – Discussion; PbP
    • Ventruenox (Mödley Crüe/Stranger In The Playground) - Gaming


    Thank you everyone who responded to our call for applications. It was heartening to see just how many people were willing to volunteer their time to keep this place running.

    At this time, we also thank Alarra, Castaras, Chambers, kpenguin, Savannah, SMEE, Vaynor, and Zeb the Troll for their service and add them to our list of retired moderators, and, of course, thank our existing moderators for all their hard work in moderating the forum and in training the new recruits.

    So join me in saying to our new mods, welcome, thank you, and good luck out there!

    Indeed, welcome to the new Mods - may you all do a great job and not get burnt out by the workload. I am sure that it is the great job the Mods do that make this such a great board to use (and I also enjoy seeing the individual titles you guys come up with).

    Oh, indeed, welcome! I may not recognize all the names, but from those that I do, I'm sure that they're all wonderful choices. Best of luck with all the cat herding.

    (And also thanks to all of the mods who are now retired, too.)

    Congratulations ladies and/or gentlemen! Both to the new mods for getting chosen, and the retiring mods for not having been driven utterly bonkers.

    In honor of Peelee's (and everyone else's) ascension *angelic choir noise*, I have prepared the following pun three ways:
    So does this mean that you guys get to cast Cure Moderate Wounds at will?
    If the Class and Level Geekery thread gets out of hand, will you have to moderate Cure Wounds?
    Does this mean that you are immune to Light Wounds and Inflict Critical Wounds?
    Stop using good evidence and logic that makes sense to refute points, that's my job
    Lots of people seem to use blue for sarcasm, I decided I should too

    Glad to see! There are some names on this forum who are always friendly and pleasant to interact with, and I'm glad to see some of them modded. And, I like the new titles.
