    If you say so. All I'm saying that it's kind of werid that all of these new mods are the main guys in the lounge. The people outside of the lounge aren't getting enough respect. Nub is one to name a few.

    It has absolutely nothing to do with the lounge and how much a person frequents it.

    If you think we did this based on how much they post in the lounge, then I don't know what to tell you. If we did it based on solely that (you're implying that), then the MOR would've been a mod :lol: could you imagine? (sorry Mor, you're my boy).

    Obviously there are multiple factors that go into picking new staff.

    Oh I know. I just think Ace was pointing out that some of the new mods are coming from the lounge. I didn't mean that you guys chose them just because they posted there more, I just think it is a coincidence. I think d-day and dm are excelent choices. Please don't take my original post the wrong way.






    Also, the mor as a mod? :eek: :lol: :wink:

    Lounge? That's BS and you know it, the very fact that I got promoted proves your theory is bogus. Before getting promoted, the only forum I called home was the political forum.

    Consider being promoted to mod as being like going to an ER, sure you may be hurting, but the guy with the most serious injury is going to be seen first, nobody is saying someone else isn't qualified, they are just saying someone else is more qualified at the momment.

    Look guys, there's no subterfuge here, just a lot of very qualified, very active and beloved members - and only a couple of positions that open at a time.

    Everyone who wants to be a part of the site in an active role will eventually get a chance I think; but you can't make it fit an individual's personal goals for achieving that, even sometimes at the cost of disappointing someone you'd rather not disappoint.

    Please trust me and the others when we say that there's quite a bit that goes into these decisions; a lot of factors to consider, a lot of discussion and a lot of very hard decisions by those who have to make them.

    Don't take it as an affront if you come in second, just do your best to make yourself even more valuable so you can be in the next go-round.

    Why the big issue to join the mod squad??????????????
    It seems to me that as soon as someone becomes a mod that this place goes from fun to work.
    I like my deal better,I come on here read all the needed info on the fin's and everything else in the world. Check out cool links people put on here soley for MY entertainment. Ignore some people that I never agree with. Laugh at some of the funiest stuff in the world. Get a smilie named for me :wpat:
    I like this place as my girlfriend I don't want to make it my wife:sidelol:

    sometimes it is work (gamedays, when the team is losing...) moving threads the don't belong in specific forums, etc. but for the most part, other than not being able to put anybody on ignore (might miss a post that needs modding...) it is pretty fun to participate, and mod.

    Jeesh ace enough is enough man i've seen you posting about this same problem in three different places now is it really bothering you that bad. Next time man just pm the mods, We all love ya here bro...no need to lash out just enjoy posting here on finheaven. The lounge members are the ones that are true members to this board unlike the fh noobs in the main forum...Loungies have great posts and are very imformative and dedicated to the board. Im glad dm was chosen she should of been chosen a while back. Dday is a great member not sure how great of a mod he'll be with all the puppet sex and what not but im sure it'll turn out for the best.

    Next 3 members i expect to be on the ballot for mod are

    Here are my :2c:

    Being a mod is an important decision and the people that choose this are doing what they think is right for this site. Every time they choose someone they know that a few (1) of you will always throw in a comment about it. I think D-day and DM were the perfect choices. Nubs and JT would be on my list for next time. (maybe even Mike0:hide: )


    Ace you keep on starting stuff like this then 2-3 hours later you say you are sorry you started this thread. You have done this more than a few times and I think you are not ready to take on this role.

    I would be a mod if needed, yeah I can cut out the sarcasm, LOL! I have pretty much anyway. This is a great site, I would love to contribute in some way. I wish I could give money but right now I am living paycheck to paycheck.

    You may not thing that I'm ready, but I believe I know the most if I am ready or not. The problem with me is that I can't stay mad at someone or something over a long period of time. I let my bad emotions type too much and then I wake up out of it later and wish I never made some comments.

    But the fact that you did make those comments makes the rest of us shaky about you ever becoming a mod bro. Just sit back and relax being a regular poster why would you want to sit in school all day then come home and have to work online for no money, sounds dumb to me. I'd rather come home after a hard day hope on the computer and enjoy myself knowing i dont have to do work online. Being a mod isnt fun, its a job. :wink:

    I'm not trying to become a mod. All I'm saying is that I'm ready if needed to be called on and I know that I can be good at it. It might be a job, but you always don't have to try to make it one.


    Just to set the record clear, I thought that the only people getting the respect are the ones in the lounge and I use to think that the outsiders of the lounge didn't get any. Muck and a fewmore has explained it too me and I understand now. I wish that this disscusion could die down.

    I see what your saying but who outside of the lounge would of you made a mod over dday and dm...I honestly thought they both deserved it very much. Both contribute alot to the site, JT, Kevin, Nub should all be on the next list. Dont look for the mods to call on you to be a mod, im not speaking for them on any behalf but im from the 3 threads you made lashing out on the mods respect i think it might of hurt there perspective on you and they might not think your mature enough to handle the position. Like I said man dont sweat it, just enjoy the forums as they are.

    You just admitted that you sometimes let your emotions get the best of you (and they have the past couple of days, no question). How can we entrust you to handle things on a daily basis if you can't handle yourself accordingly?

    I hate to be so blunt about it, but we can't have people that can't control themselves be thrust into a position of leadership. Now that's not to say that we won't change our minds. We see everything for the most part, and if situations arise where you handle yourself with maturity and professionalism on the board in the future, maybe things will be different.

    Brother Zach, there have been some great advice here. Give it time brother, set the example, and your time will come. At your young age you have experienced some things that could be beneficial to others knowing what you have gone through with your health concerns, and how you have handled different situations. We learn from our mistakes, and it makes us better people all the way around. I am still learning believe me.:wink:
