I am not volunteering either.

Edit: Seems like I was added as an option. Would it be possible to remove that?

I also want someone who is a "culture" fit- in any operation, personality fit is almost more important than skill set in terms of a working relationship.  So talk to me about that too.

Maybe job interviews via Skype?
It always seems like the barrels around here have something in them.

Tier 5: An expert cartographer or a decent marksman.
Tier 4: An expert marksman.

Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.
Tier 1: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything and the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.[/spoiler]

Text-to-speech? Sound like GLaDOS at your interview. :D

Quote from: Cafiend
It is a shame stupidity isn't painful.
Quote from: StormKnight
Totally true.  Historians believe that most past civilizations would have endured for centuries longer if they had successfully determined Batman's alignment.
Quote from: Grand Theft Otto
Why are so many posts on the board the equivalent of " Dear Dr. Crotch, I keep punching myself in the crotch, and my groin hurts... what should I do? How can I make my groin stop hurting?"
Quote from: CryoSilver
I suggest carving "Don't be a dick" into him with a knife.  A dull, rusty knife.  A dull, rusty, bent, flaming knife.
Quote from: Seerow
Fluffy: It's over Steve! I've got the high ground!
Steve: You underestimate my power!
Fluffy: Don't try it, Steve!
Steve: *charges*
Fluffy: *three critical strikes*
Steve: ****
Quote from: claypigeons
I don't even stat out commoners. Commoner = corpse that just isn't a zombie. Yet.
Quote from: CryoSilver
When I think "Old Testament Boots of Peace" I think of a paladin curb-stomping an orc and screaming "Your death brings peace to this land!"
Quote from: Orville_Oaksong
Buy a small country. Or Pelor. Both are good investments.

I just don't want to pay $9 for something I'll only use for this one occasion. I didn't see a trial version when I checked the site.

I haven't checked the site in ages, but I'm almost certain there's a free version. I used to use it occasionally for coordinating with friends, and never paid a single cent. It's also in the Ubuntu Software Centre. AFAIK, you only pay for calling actual phone numbers (calling other Skype users is free).

This Download Page Reads From Left To Right ;)

A nice program to have. Though the 'Skype Interview' was just a brainstorming idea. So clicking the shiny link is optional. :D

Paying for Skype? I use it on a daily basis and I have never paid a dime. Same goes for all my friends, who use it. It is one remarkable application.

I'm basically never on here anymore, but thanks for the "nomination", Prime32.

A couple of water benders, a dike, a flaming arrow, and a few barrels of blasting jelly?

Sounds like the makings of a gay porn film.

... I'd vote all these guys and "guys".

Things are getting tamer around here, just from the distance from 3.5's glory years.
I mean, people can go somewhere else to be total !@#$ .

Exactly... I'd like some names please. I look at people wanting certain members to leave the same way I look at break ups, if you got a place for them to go, then, and only then do you have an argument. Maybe I was a game show host in a past life, but when I left a girl, I'd be like "but you're not going home empty handed! Here's several other guys you can date, and your very own I dated Jim Profit t-shirt!"

I'd apply, but probably people here think I'm new. Even though my name is pretty much carved into the internet. At least on 4chan. I've been mod before at other forums, never big ones like this one. And I didn't really "moderate", I hate moderation, I was the anti-moderator. I'd undo others moderation to give some checks and balances. Mods need to be contradicted, and members are in a bad position to do it. You can't reason with someone with a gun in their hand. So at least if you have one mod who "gets it", they can undo bans, fix your posts, get them out of the spam gutter, and stuff like that until the other mods cut you a break and actually treat you like a human being. What a novel concept.

I have a reasonable distrust and dislike of mods. People tend to excuse their own misbehavior and intolerance by claiming it's "their forum". Some people just shouldn't run a website if they can't handle the differences of others. It's like Abraham Lincoln said, nearly any man can stand adversity. But if you want to judge a man's character, give him power. Guys like Fast Eddie of TvTropes, Richard the rapist Burlew, and Moot of 4chan, have extremely bad characters.

I'm writing a book about it. I'll probably have to come up with a shorter title then "Everything I Learned About Politics, I Learned From Posting At Internet Forums". But that's basically the premise. Hopping from message board to message board for ten years, has taught me a lot about what to expect from people, and what to expect in return. You have to learn to depend on your super ego when on the internet, because no one is going to treat you fairly, abide by the rules they're enforcing, or believe a word you say. Thats why half the book is basically me just having a rage fit against some notable mods, and wishing I had their personal information to just give out to the public. The way they just play jump rope with my IP address.

No offense, but you obviously don't understand how the mods work on this forum.
