    Couldn't find it in the FAQ guide, I noticed some people are branded as a "Demi-God (Moderator emeritus)" (eg: mad jew).

    What does this mean?

    I'm guessing it's a honorary title given to a former moderator.

    Someone who used to be a Moderator, was successful, but now has retired from their duties.

    I'm assuming this brings up a definition of the word, but I do this and it does nothing. :confused:

    ah nuts, I'm not special any more :p


    It just means that we were mods, but that we have now "retired" from modding duties, rather than being fired :eek: :p

    We get to keep our slightly larger avatar, have the different title, but we no longer have access or privilege to any modding tools.

    So you mean both edisgnuk and madjew are no longer tied up doing trivial moderation tasks and are now free to spend all of their free time in the forums! :eek:

    Maybe not ALL of their free time, and they may still be tied up. ;-)

    Can you imagine not being able to ignore annoying members or excluding pointless areas of the forum, being hassled all the time "why did you wasteland my thread?" etc?

    I'd begin to hate this place too...

    What moderators do in their private time.... :eek: You can make emoticons white-texted?

    Unlike the President of the United States, no pension and sadly no moderatorial library.... :(

    Snort! :D

    Thank you for my morning chuckle. :)

    I see that both eyelikeheart and bousozuko are not longer listed on the member list.

    I miss bousozoku being around these parts. Enjoyed seeing him return for one day during the Olympic torch carry.

    Hey, where's my pacifier?! :p ;) :D
