I've seen him use it before. Even Yonkey could get angry :D

That's true, I hardly ever see him use that... well, at least he can't get super angry at TheKnight anymore! ::)

 ;D  I wasn't really angry with The Knight, but it did look like I was! 8)

But yeah, I could see myself getting angry in the future once we'll have newbies spamming, spoiling or starting flame wars.   ::)  I would also tend to get mad when people are trying to break my forum.   ;)

Don't worry, we believe you  ;)

Post by: Yonkey on October 29, 2003, 05:29:43 PM
Yeah, I know.  That's why I wasn't really mad.   :)

It's the people who intentionally try to break it that make me mad.  But again, that hasn't happened yet, so it's all good.   ::)

He might need that when the game's released - this board would probably be more crowded than the Tierra forum after KQ2+ was released  ;D

Oh yeah, depending on how many users we get I may have to do some moderator recruiting.   :P

Of course, you guys (by this I mean all the KQ9 regulars) would be my first choices.  :)

/me grabs a copy of the rules engraved on glass and breaks the glass.

You angry now, Yonkey? :P  Nah, I kid.  I'm a good person, really...  As for any newbies, I can scare them away.  That's what I normally do att he messageboard I already mod at.  I think I scare away everyone else too :P
Title: Re:Evil Yonkey...
Post by: Yonkey on October 30, 2003, 07:56:06 AM
Oh yeah, scare tactics are great!   :suffer:

When there are people misbehaving I use those and various other techniques on them (because I'm not an administrator on other forums).  It may turn into a flame war which gets the higher people involved ;D, or it makes the original poster flee in fear from all the compounded bashing.   :suffer:

Anyway, what I mean is that you guys do an awesome job at moderating already and you may not even realise it.  ;D

Post by: Storm on October 30, 2003, 08:15:33 AM
/me splits another thread

Us doing a great job moderating?  ??? where? ???

Why is the title of this thread "Evil Yonkey"? it should be "Angry Yonkey" or "Yonkey the Fabulous Mod"  ;)

Post by: Oldbushie on October 30, 2003, 09:19:46 AM
I guess we help keep things on topic sometimes and act as helpers for Yonkey already? Hmm... :D

Us helping to keep things on-topic??

When did that ever happen?  ;D

/me starts training his cats the techniques of forum-modding.

I'm generally not good at directing threads back to topic, but that's just because that's not a rule I'm inclined to follow at the moment. Now if I were a mod...

Once upon a time... I was an active member on the Sierra-forums. Now there I was acting like an unofficial mod, telling people when they were breaking forum rules so I can do it, if I want to.

/me officially applies to be a mod when the need arises.

Not now, I mean in the future (like after the game is released) when we have hundreds of forum members.  Depending on how crazy it gets, I might need more moderators then.   8)

remember, we were all n00bs once upon a time... (in fact, some of us are still kinda n00b! ;))
Yes, we were, but that was once upon a time, long, long ago, even in a far away land for some of you...  ;D

Yummm, salty peanuts...  8)

I'm good at answering the questions of newbies, as I know what it's like to be frustrated when no one will answer a question of mine (happened a couple times on other distant forums). And I do try to get things back on topic occasionally when I feel the topic is worth saving. ;D
Title: Re:Angry Yonkey...
Post by: Yonkey on October 30, 2003, 03:46:03 PM
I wouldn't really say going off-topic is bad and people who do should get punished.  I think it depends on the degree (how far off-topic it is), the frequency (how often the user does it) and how annoyed other people get.  

Some topics will be extremely serious and if some wacko decides to put "ROSELLA IS HOT!" 30 times in a post, for no apparent reason, then I would consider that an offense.  They could destroy the whole flow of the discussion and really piss off some people.  But if he just posted it once, sort of in response to something mentioned in a post, then it would be more acceptable and probably wouldn't count as an offense.

Basically it all depends on the situation.  Newbies don't always bother to read the rules and tend to get upset when no one pays attention to them when they break them.  Of course, I'm talking about the extreme cases.  Most newbies obey the rules.  :)

I don't remember ever having spammers or flamers here.
Only those annoying people who come over once every blue moon, and post something just to piss everyone off  :P

And I've been awake for 33 hours so far.

What??  :o Why?  ???
Title: Re:Angry Yonkey...
Post by: Yonkey on October 30, 2003, 08:18:16 PM
lol, how old are you?   :P
Title: Re:Angry Yonkey...
Post by: Oldbushie on October 30, 2003, 09:00:00 PM
I have tried myself, but I can only stay awake for a max of 18 hours at a time. It's impossible for me to pull all-nighters, though I have tried many times.
Title: Re:Angry Yonkey...
Post by: Jeysie on October 30, 2003, 09:05:21 PM
I'm capable of staying awake physically for long periods of times if I really want to. However, mentally I turn into a zombie after about 24 hours or so, so it ends up not being very worth it. Although I do remember spending a few shifts at my old jobs almost literally ringing register in my sleep (like on the Day After Thanksgiving :P).

Peace & Luv, Liz
