    I know, man, I'm like part of the 'establishment' now. My days as a rogue 'the people's mod' are over. I have been subsumed by the machine!

    I shall, however, attempt to carry on dastardly.

    Congrats and condolences to the people mentioned in the OP and to the rest of DLP, respectively. One of the more peaceful hostile takeovers I've witnessed.

    Just out of interest and while this thread is getting attention: What are the privileges, powers and responsibilities of each of these roles? I'm guessing Alumni no longer have most or even any powers - mostly to to limit the risk of account fuckery. What's the difference between Moderator and Administrator?

    Generally speaking, Moderators clean up after regular users. Admins, while capable of everything Mods can do, are able to work on the back end of the forum. Managing plug-ins, styles, subforums etc.

    Pffffff - clearly the only difference is that admins have yellow titles and moderators get green ones.

    Does not being mentioned give me a better chance of not being blown up? I knew you loved me, TMD. <3

    No worries mate, I figured you can enjoy life now that you've achieved your dream of being a forum administrator.

    It does seem like a huge deal to someone with a life expectancy of Allahu Akbar, doesn't it.

    Hem, hem.

    Thank you, DLP, for those kind words of welcome.

    It is lovely to be a moderator here at DLP, I must say! And of course to see such happy little faces looking up at me. I am very much looking forward to getting to ban you all and I'm sure we'll be very good friends!

    Hem, hem.

    We must also keep in mind that some changes will be for the better, while others will come, in the fullness of time, to be recognised as errors of judgement. Meanwhile, some old habits will be retained, and rightly so, whereas others, outmoded and outworn, must be abandoned. Let us move forward, then, into a new era of openness, effectiveness and accountability, intent on preserving what ought to be preserved, perfecting what needs to be perfected, and pruning wherever we find practices that ought to be prohibited.

    Hem, hem.

    ...but seriously, thanks for the words and welcome everyone!

    Congrats people. May you not be crushed by the incessant whining of people who can barely use a keyboard. :D

    Congrats to everyone. I am absolutely terrified. Any who can someone link me to a page where there is a list of all the current moderators and admins?

    Just sort the Members List by post count, all the staff should be on the first two or three pages.
