Well, I got the sense he didn't do much on this board anymore either way, so yeah, if he's threating people, he can get lost.

One way or the other it feels like we really got a big change of the guard in the last 12 months.

I'd like to consider it long past due spring cleaning. And I say this has someone who is neither old or new guard, but someplace awkwardly in the middle.

Honestly, I'm just happy to still be a part of it, especially in some fashion that allows me to have a bit of control over the direction of the forums and assisting the happiness of the people using it. ^_^

FreakyFilmFan4Ever has been promoted from moderator to administrator! Congratulations, Freaky! I'm absolutely certain you'll be able to do a splendid job of, as you put it, assisting the happiness of the people visiting this place.

We've also made another change regarding our admins. We have restructured role visibility for administrators to more accurately display their involvement on the forum. Regular admins (orange) are the sort who'd routinely visit the site and deal with site matters, while gold-text "system admins" (for lack of a better term) shoulder a lot of the weight of actually keeping this place running, but you'd very rarely see them around on the forum.

Thanks for the level-up! I’m not used to my username color making my posts look this important. :lol:

Congratulations from me as well! With Freaky, I know the team has made the right choice!

On slightly sadder news: I will have to announce my leave from active moderation. As regulars to the forum might have noticed, I wasn't really active in the past few months. So, while my interest in Eva still remains, I can not in good conscience claim to be all that involved with the forum. Which also means that I can not really take part in the decision-making process behind the scenes. So it would be irresponsible to claim that I can still fulfill the responsibilities I volunteered to take over about half a year ago.

Therefore, I will have to take my leave from active moderation. I will of course stick around - I wouldn't want to miss all of you. But for now, I will become a regular member of the community again.

It's so weird to see your names being displayed in different colors. It's funny how our brains create and root these associations.
Congratulations, FreakyFilmFan4ever!
Derantor, I hope you have fun being a good old user!

Just sit here and waste your precious time. When you want to do something, don't do it right away. Don't do it when you can. Read my posts instead. It's the only way to live a life without regrets.

Small announcement regarding bans; a while ago, we changed the highest penalty from "permanent" to "indefinite", to reflect the fact that people can change, and someone who got a permaban might be allowed back in a few years down the line, if and when they have changed as a person.
However, that does not apply for all cases; some things are a one way ticket off the site.

Indefinite bans are for long-time bad behaviour of active users; the people who in spite of the problems they cause are part of the site and have engaged in discussion in at least some productive dimension.
Permanent bans are for trolls and the like; the ones who only joined the forum to start shit or, as the last case, be racist in thread. It is also possible for long time users to recieve this, however in that case the offenses have to be exceptionally severe and intentionally harming to the forum.

This is neither a fundamental change, nor will it have any impact on regular forum operation; it's simply for the sake of transparency for a policy that up until now has not been communicated well from our side.
