Does anybody know how to reach sandy or wayne, or know if there's another moderator around here? I need help with some administrative stuff.

Do our 6x6x6 members get like an honorary moderator status?

There are only 2 moderators and 1 is easier to reach then the other right now.

Posting a lot has no reflection on your ability to be a good moderator. Are there forums that actually do this?

Good call. If any of them (or even both of them) is interested, they will definitely get my vote! :)

I would give them my votes, or what about Aleksey?

Although Aleksey is also fully qualified for this, I would prefer Aleksey to participate on something else... in my opinion, more important!!! ;)
(Sorry can't say more right now LOL)

Sounds like a new custom puzzle, or a new DB?

Is there any topics on the history of this forum? I couldn't find one.
There are 4 people that I know of that have made this forum what it is today. I might start a new post detailing some of the history. Seems like Wayne (sausage) is the only one left that is involved these days.

I guess it would be up to him if he wants another moderator on the forum.

So, does that (in combination with the previous post(s)) imply I don't have anything more important to do?

You guys who want moderators, what do you want them to do? No, I'm not interested to become a moderator here, just curious what you actually have in mind. Also, I believe we're all off-topic, since I believe Bram didn't ask for adding moderators to this forum.

What we really need is someone to continually update the database :)

ok ok LOL

I will put it this way... it is an idea in its birth, that Aleksey and me are thinking of doing. At this stage we are figuring out the details, and if this works out, we will be contacting more people (including you!).

The only thing is, both me and Aleksey are very busy, so this might take some time.

By watching someone like you, allowed to make so many short-worded posts, almost making a mockery of this forum, you are probably right.

A few months back, you had complained that people were against you. At that time, although your behaviour was aggressive, you made some valid points.

Sadly, you have now finally exposed yourself as some person who loves to spam.

Testing the patience of other people, or trying to figure out if any moderator will take action, won't take you anywhere. I can assure you of that.

Well put Pantazis!!! Ugh, what's the point of all your posts Jimbob? - Think about the point you are trying to make. What is your reasoning behind your posts? What are you trying to say/tell the people of this forum? So far, you have come across as a pointless spammer. You bring up old topics. And it's annoying a lot of members here. If you want to make a presence, there's better ways to do that.

NO ONE CARES ABOUT POST COUNT!!! YES there are a few members that are doing that, and well you are in that group. Please, try to write something that can add to the discussion.

Sausage - is there a way to change the post count rankings? Just put everyone as a 1x1x1! :roll: :evil:

Quite easy! In Administration, Rank Administration, delete all the ranks higher than 1x1x1 8-)

He is trying to emulate the new young guys here.

I guess he wants to find flaws in this forum and take revenge for being "mistreated" (as he thinks) the last time he was around.

And he is not stupid, which makes him much more guilty for what he is doing now.

75 posts in two days? He probably tries to prove that he can reach 1000 in a month... :roll:

Of course, being a 6x6x6 in one month wouldn't mean anything, seeing as he never posts anything useful :(

Being a 6x6x6 in 1 month would just be misleading to any new members thinking that this person is someone great with lots of good information to share.

Yeah that's why I also look at the Joined Date under their names. If they've been here a long time, I know they have been here for a while and willing to stick it out as a true member. (not saying this is the best method, but it's just another thing I look at)

That idea works to some extent. It might also be good to just wait and get familiar with the members of the forum. After that you definitely get a feel for who is reliable.

Whoa, Frank Morris is on this forum?????? :shock:

Just kidding, even though I only learned of this after months of being on this forum... And I didn't learn he was famous until a month or so after that :(
