Pupularity: Sometimes in moderatorship you may have to perma-ban one of your best friends and some people here can't do that to their best friend.
Join Date: You could've joined in 1920 *I know CI wasn't there then) and still not be a mod, why? Because it all counts on how you obey the rules and your attitude.

Also, Moderation isn't all "I can lock topics and ban people mwhahahaha" it's actually pretty complicated.


I never said that they should be picked based only on how long they've been here. I said that there's plenty other veterans that also follow the rules. Like Enzo, picka, Kage, etc.

Drouge told me to give this message when we both became mods.

Anyways, I'd like to congratulate the both of you. CI really needed more Moderators, and I have no doubt in my mind you two will turn out to be excellent Moderators.

Congratulations again, and welcome to the team.

Jm not to sound rude but the way you make it sound like is that you are the only one who is helping out around the forums. I'm not honestly sure you have, i mean the only thing i've seen you do is RP constantly. :/

It's hard for the members to know who's actually qualified for the rank of Moderator. Why? If two posts get forged because they were double-posts, who'd get the glory? The Moderator who forged the posts. Now, assume a member reported the post and brought it to the Moderator's attention and doesn't mention they reported it. Who would know who reported it? No one but the Moderator or Administrator that dealt with the report. No members would know. Tons of members could be helping out, reporting posts and not stating that they reported it. Say the person also doesn't Mini-Moderate. The person wouldn't shine out to the members because the person wouldn't of done anything to shine out for. What if JmTsHaW was that person? Underestimated, assumed to be a regular member and not Moderator worthy, but actually was?

JmTsHaW was also a Moderator on a different, active Chao forum, so he has Moderator experience. (In case you're wondering, JmTsHaW quit because the Administrator treated everyone badly.) However, he still has the experience.
Seriously, JmTsHaW cannot be that bad of a choice, considering what it takes to become a Moderator in the first place. Give him a chance, guys.

Also, congratulations on becoming Moderators Topgun and JmTsHaW!

Enzo argues a lot, curses, and more of a lurker. I'm too young, curse, debate, get angry, and have banner issues constantly. Kagen argues a lot, and is pretty inactive.

Meh. My guess.

Ahahahahaha. Oh hahahaha. This topic is funny. You guys have no idea. You all think that you know everything. Have you noticed that the people who are hating on JmT being Moderator ain't their friend. And they say they want their friends to be a Mod. You guys are hilarious.

You have NO right to do this to JmT. You have no clue what he's done. I bet you he has used the report button very useful. Sure, he didn't understand at first. That first impression said that "There is no way he's gonna be a mod". But, no. He learned from his mistakes quickly and that helped him be this rank. I'm sure he's used the report button the best times possible while you guys didn't. He is very active, gets up first in the morning to catch the worms. Sometimes I try to report a topic but its already reported. And usually not much people are here in the morning except JmT.

What I find funny is you guys were begging for a Moderator, and now your complaining about the Moderators? JmT is probably very good, and you have no idea. You don't have to know that he's good. You guys seriously crack me up. Don't you see how rude it is to do this? If you complain this much, then I can't wait to see you not be able to eat food for two and a half days like I did once.

They don't have to be a Moderator just because they're your friends. I mean, look at the person who said Enzo. Really? Sure, he's inactive and argues 24/7. He should be a mod. <_< I believe with these two being on the team, things around here could be helped. Now why not congratulate him instead of put him down? That lowers self esteem which may make him do a worse job. He is doing fine the way he is. I may be clueless of what he does, but you are too.

^Who's hating? I just said I didn't agree with the choice, which I still stand by. If you and moderators do, then that's absolutely fine with me. I made suggestions on who I would've chosen. You don't need to go on an Internet rage.

@picka
You're too harsh with yourself, man =/

EDIT: Also, I barely ever talk to Enzo, picka, and Kage. I'm pretty sure we don't consider ourselves "friends".

So a message to those people: If you want to complain, it's best to message Mooncow or Fusion. Not complain on another where nothing will be answered >.>


I wasn't complaining. I think its good Mooncow is taking action. Just be a good moddy to us, Joshua. p:

^Except you're not proving anyone wrong. Considering that you have no idea if JmT is actually fit for the job. Only moderators do.

I also like how you said "You guys", assuming I was actually "hating" on JmT. All I said was that I was a bit bothered by the choice the moderators did and that, in my opinion, there are other better choices. You can't prove an opinion wrong.

Anyways, I'm done with the disscussion. Congrats Topgun and JmTsHaW. Hope you guys can become great moderators.

Congratulations to both of you. :)
And people, stop complaining about JmTsHaW being a moderator. Why would he be chosen if he wasn't thought to be a good choice?
And I've noticed that some people are looking for ways the JmTsHaW is doing something 'wrong'. He didn't even advertise the site, he was showing members something. People do that all the time. :P
Whatever, I'm happy for both of you, and I hope you do well.

And JmTsHaW, congratz as well! I think I already said that, but hey, might as well say it again!

So a big happy celebration for the two of you :D

Wow I'm soo late...
Well personally I think JmT kinda rp's too much but he also does help out the site and doesn't spam or minimod too. Congrats to both of you two, Tophat (xD) and JmTRobot (xD Referring to jmt robot post) I think they both deserve it. They will hopefully turn out to be excellent mods and don't let the fame go to their head.

Oh yeah just to say, If I'm the one having to edit one of your posts, I'll lock the post too, so if you want any edits done ask me or anyone else if I've had to edit the post in the past.
