    New Sheriff?


    I hear there's a new sheriff in town, so I figured I'd wander back in and see if anything has or is going to change. Good luck. I hope you've all been well.

    Dude, seriously, welcome back. I've posted in the mod lounge to re-instate your rights and powers.

    New Sheriff old Deputy? Seems like the kind of thing that should be set to a 60 second commercial with patriotic music and a promise to protect the community.

    I'd be willing to admit guilt to shooting the old sheriff, but I did not shoot... well, you know how it goes.

    You find someone else to do the dirty job?

    Can't stop thinking... our new sheriff started by posting the same message in several forums.

    I thought about mentioning that, but that's the nice thing about being the sheriff of the internet (site), you don't actually have to follow the rules.

    Hi Guys!
    as far as past members...if the mods and admin are cool with bringing back past banned members, then I'm cool with that.

    I understand that there may have been past issues with people who may no longer be here...or with people who had different goals than now....all these decisions I'd like to leave up to the admins and moderators.

    I certainly would love to see some people with the reputation and number of comments like you guys, come back if possible....but I also don't want poison in here...or to piss of any of the current mods or admins...

    this decision on past members who were banned, I'll leave for the mods and admins to decide...it's your community...with luck, that will work.

    if there are other past people who used to post here, and are your friends, please let them know that the site is getting cleaned up and that we'd love to have them back.

    Jim: Sepodati wasn't actually banned, he quit during the last management shakeup. A user who is actually banned has their "banned" sub-heading in red. We have multiple members who are serial-banned (Arty_Ziff, sizablegrin aka DaWei_M, and others). There are plenty of drama-filled threads in the mods-only forum about those members.

    Sepo was never banned, the discussion is whether to re-instate his moderator powers.

    Sepodati: Would you like your powers restored? There's unanimous support in the mod forums, but I know you willingly gave them up.

    No thanks. I don't think I have enough to contribute in that area anymore.

    I'm patient. We all put up with a lot of **** as those other guys ran the site into the ground. I hope you turn it around.
