Behold: FirebirdNC, the Mad Moderator!

Post by Martin Blank » Fri Jan 03, 2020 9:49 pm

Some of you may have noticed that I'm not on here regularly. But someone else is: FirebirdNC. With her approval, I have promoted her to moderator, with all the pain privilege that comes with it.

At the same time, I have released Jezebel, Felan, and sneaky ninja from their responsibilities. This is more about securing accounts that are not routinely active, and I am forever thankful for the mess that they waded through some days.

Now behave yourselves.
If I show up at your door, chances are you did something to bring me there.

I for one welcome our new marine overlady.

Although I’m not going to mention her underground sugar-cave.

Congratulations, Firebird. May your banhammer remain ever vigilant and may modified behaviour come swiftly to your enemies.

She only gets the Edit Scalpel. The Banhammer resides in a locked safe in my office.

Thank you for realizing that I haunt here way more than I should lol. I promise to keep our tiny pool clean even if there are some creepy fish hanging around the bottom (Rors I'm looking at you). (Please read the following in Mr. Burn's voice) And one day the banhammer shall be mine oh yes!

Ehhhxcellent *tents fingers*

Have there been many issues where moderator action has been required? Maybe I’m just blissfully unaware of spammers or someone who have been misbehaving. At least now we have an ovarian scalpel to eradicate such ridiculousness :)

Ovarian scalpels, but more like dick mallets. Blunt, imprecise, but painful none the less.

If we're going for feature parity, maybe testicular morningstars? Congrats fb!

Ha! No matter how you envision it, that’s quite a sight.

There are two parts to the spam prevention mechanisms:
  • Invisible ReCAPTCHA
  • A post filter that requires three accepted posts or replies by a moderator or admin
The second one has helped us filter out a few dozen spammers per year, but it also catches people who register and then I don't see for a couple of months. FirebirdNC's promotion was more to catch the latter than the former, because if the spammers sit in purgatory forever, it makes no difference to legitimate forumites.
