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

This guy, right here. Seriously. He's always A) on-topic B) helpful C) pleasurable to read

On the list? Mmm Tshern and/or Sinfire. Its a shame NGDBSS doesn't haunt here more (he likes enworld) or I'd nominate him. Obviously no one from GitP lasts long if they are half a decent person.

I live at Min/max. I only come out when following prime's links (which is the only reason I am here). But I would say if min/max needs another psuedo mod, I'll throw my hat in the mix for a revised 'handbooks'-type subforum. I do lots of community resources and I feel like I am the only one with the drive and the consistency to pull them all together in a way that doesn't get buried. This would only require a single mod power once the new subforum is made which would be moving things in from within min/max. It would be helpful for archive purposes to be able to edit threads once inside, but if I don't warrant that level of trust then I suppose it isn't necessary.

I suppose I could simple quote things and import them into other boards where I'm a mod, but that defeats the whole purpose of helping out the community. Sorry if I seem out in left field over here but I don't follow the podcasts and have little reason to stray from min/max.

I still don't get why you can't just put "'handbooks'-type resources" in the handbooks section. ??? Then there's Tshern's stickied Handy Links, which even contains a list of handbooks. If you're worried about something getting buried then post it there. Would it help if the Handbooks section was renamed?

The tier system in a nutshell:
[spoiler]Tier 6: A cartographer.
Tier 5: An expert cartographer or a decent marksman.
Tier 4: An expert marksman.
Tier 3: An expert marksman, cartographer and chef who can tie strong knots and is trained in hostage negotiation or a marksman so good he can shoot down every bullet fired by a minigun while armed with a rusted single-shot pistol that veers to the left.
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.

I like handbooks. Granted its unorthodox, but I have one. I like the idea of a thread where you rate one kind of thing to build for a character.

The stickied threads are in my opinion the hold-over from 339.

Granted I see a lot of the world differently than people nowadays, but I am still convinced that a lot of the thread meta-resources (where you go to look up lists) is different enough from where you go to get ideas for an archivist's abilities.

I suppose if I'm just barking at the moon I can do the work over at another forum, I just didn't want to cross-pollinate forums.

This is a good thing then. Of course much better than gitp.

I have, and presumably veekie has too. All of us were in the recipients header of the PM, so he should have.

The best course of action would be to divy up the boards into groups and have each of us pick a group to patrol relentlessly moderate.

So, who wants to be on damage control for the BLYHT section?

Pretty much, yeah. For one, veekie heavily favors the homebrew section(s), so it'd make sense to put him in charge of that.

So, who wants to be on damage control for the BLYHT section?
lalalalala can't hear you
Just kidding, I dunno. With BYLHT being a bit of a special case, it seems to me like it would be worth considering making it a sort of general board, so that whoever has the least headache already at the moment can step in if it's necessary, rather than sticking a single guy with the job.

Got the PM yeah.

I spend most of my time on Homebrew, GM Gameology and Deliberations to start with, so those are natural areas. The Kitchen Sink and Inspiration Strikes might warrant a look as well, those are low traffic, but I do keep some track of them. For the most part these areas are moderation light, excepting the occasional move/stickying.

BLYHT would need a combined effort, I think, else it'd be cruel and unusual duty for any one guy to be monitoring that.

The truth is much more awesome than that. You can almost never see the real Moon, and its appearance is death to humans. You can only see the Moon when it's reflected in things. And the things it reflects in, like water or glass, can all be broken, right? Since the moon you see in the sky is just being reflected in the heavens, if you tear open the heavens it's easy to break it~"

Better idea: SFT, do you have AIM? seems like it would be easiest to get everyone together on an instant messenger than arranging PMs and having some gotten lost when we forget to address them to everyone and whatnot.
