Being a mafia player seems to be a pre-req for being a mod these days.

Guess we're good at spotting bullshit.

Well,... most of the time.

Congrats Kit!!!

I had only played one game here when I joined the team. Don't think anyone considered me a 'Mafia player'.

Congrats Kitsune sure you’ll do a great job. Thanks for agreeing to do a thankless job. Now you’re on the inside, can you put a word in for me. I need little sleep and already work for peanuts.

I’m starting to think that I’m overlooked because of my age. That’s a protected characteristic in some jurisdictions. Who do I sue? Should applications be blind with no names on CVs to ensure we remove this obvious bias.

By which I did NOT mean to imply, 'its not your age, because there is OBVIOUSLY Something Glaringly Wrong with your application besides your supposedly advanced age. In fact, I think it might be because your application was miss placed in the recent remodel of the mod lounge.

Hmm... I've clearly not been around enough lately if people I've never heard of are becoming mods... But I'm sure you'll be great! Thanks for doing this thankless task!

I am happy to announce a new position on the mod team and for the forum: Moderator-in-preparation. This MiP position indicates a person who is basically ready to become a mod whenever they are inclined.

I am also happy to announce that our first MiP is Maniac.

Thank you, Maniac, for volunteering for this position. It is a thankless job and I am sure we will be ready to thank you whenever you are ready to stop complaining, I mean, to serve. Just let us know. 8-)

Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you. Words can not easily express how much this means to me. I was that weak kid always picked last for the soccer team; the shy, geeky nerdy young man who lost his virginity at 38 and quickly found it again. I was the aging diplomacy player cascading into the obscurity of pensionerhood. But no more. I can now patrol the WebDiplomacy forum with a new badge (presumably) and a swagger. My first task is to hunt out all those misusing the sky comma (otherwise known as the apostrophe) and shame those motherfucker’s. I’ll report my findings back to the team through the moderators’ portal.

Hussah!

Who made Maniac a MiP?

I'm not going to thank Maniac for doing this much vaunted task as he frankly gets far too much credit for it already.

Here comes the new boss, same as the old boss. Let's all join together in singing The Red Flag to mark this auspicious moment...

The working class can kiss my arse
I got the foreman's job at last.
You can tell old Joe I'm off the dole
He can stick his Red Flag up his 'ole!
