What would be the point?

About time you had some order around this place. A community run forum is never a happy one.

I think the issue for some is more like: should flak be the only one with admin powah?

I think you should be our official mascot. Ass-less chaps will of course be required.

I'm down with that.

But truth be told, I've really got a bad feeling about this change.

You think Flak is serious?

He said in chat last night that he took all the other admin's rights away. I do hope he wasn't serious - I'm not an admin, I don't know. Maybe I just didn't get the joke.

I was an admin. Now I am not.

I guess he's serious.

Serious about what exactly? He's always been serious about breaking the forum software. (Bitch to Flak)

Other than that, I've never seen him serious. He always played his jokes to the end though.

So we had too many admins?

I dunno. It doesn't really bother me. I only wanted it when the whole Ringy fiasco was going on and I needed to edit personal info he was posting about me. Other than that, I've only used it two other times to move threads when people asked for it. I like having it, but it's not really necessary.

I don't see the harm in it. No real reason to change it unless someone was doing things they shouldn't be. Then just remove that person.

The reason why we had many admins to start with was so we could have someone to act quick any time of the day if shit hit the fan. It proved to be useful several times already.

Yeah, I remember a few of them.

Only benefit of having more than one admin is to clean up something that may be accidentally inserted... a NSFW pic that needs to be linked, not inlined. Flak can't watch it all the time.

However, I've never been an admin, and I'm totally satisfied without it. I just say "fight club", and hope that someone sees what I see.

Leck48, beermunk, hoser, pete1burn and myself had admin. I don't know why flak decided it was time to make these sorts of changes after 6 years of nothing going wrong.

I suppose it makes sense to take hoser off the list due to non-participation, but in general I really like the idea the the forum has more than one admin. This keeps egos in check and makes the forum better.
