    I only saw his response due to the quote, but I just wanted to say that you are correct. I was not at all trying to be disrespectful of the police, I am very respectful of the police. Anyone who knows me in real life knows that, but of course no one here knows me other than on the forums or on our consoles. My point was that a forum without mods would be chaos, much like a world without police would be chaos.

    But the fact of the matter is that the issues stemming in this thread are not just about this thread. It's been something that, in my opinion, has been escalating for quite some time. I feel I have tried to be respectful. I may joke, but remember that Woody gets joked about all the times here with one member in particular being a big part of it. Sometimes, to me, those jokes even come close to bullying. It seems like if it's someone else joking, that's not acceptable but that for some people it's perfectly fine. I won't go any further, because I'm not trying to call anyone out even if it seems like it. Just stating some things I've noticed in my time here.

    I won't bring it up again. I've done what I felt was necessary, and there's nothing to fix. As far as I am concerned what's done is done.

    Now, back on topic - I have always believed Kahhhhyle would be a great mod if it's something he desires doing. He's always stayed respectful and fair to other members, and he is quite active. I think he'd be a great addition. I also believe it wouldn't be a bad idea to fill Kahhhhle's guide spot as well. I think savinghyrule would be a good fit for that position. It would also allow us to have a guide on late at night.

    I think Cloud's point is that just because the "crime rate" is low doesn't mean we shouldn't be prepared for the event that trolls find their way here. At the moment we have a core group who regularly post and all know one another. For the most part, conflict is resolved with little interference from the mod team. However, all it takes is one troll to upset that delicate balance. For better or worse, we need to have people to deal with that and keep the peace should that happen. His core point is well taken. I think calling Cloud a drama queen was pushing the limits of the name calling rule. I understand your objection to the metaphor; However, I think you could have expressed yourself in a more productive manner

    That's a good point. I'd say that while I have a couple of topics that I'm sensitive about, it seems these days a lot of people generally speaking are sensitive about a LOT of stuff. That's just how things are. I'm willing to apologize and make amends as best I can.

    In 13 more minutes, thank gosh.

    I work 2:00-10:30 every day during the school year, although technically I can come in whenever I want since I'm the boss.

    Not sure if you picked up on what I posted--not that long ago, but I, and probably at least a couple of others, would have pushed for Kahhhhyle to be a mod at last staff re-organization, but he had declared he was leaving the forum, so that rendered all that moot.

    As far as the state of everything, I think we're doing fine. We haven't had much membership growth recently, which I'm not particularly happy about, but that is the case...

    Pretty much what the other mods have stated before me in this thread holds true. Things have been quiet recently so there has been no innate need to expand the mod team. In addition to that, I'd say we already have enough mods per active members on this site.

    But don't fear folks! When the time is right, we'll gladly expand the team with new members.

    That sounds reasonable enough. Maybe you could consider something like this?

    But I do remember that post you're mentioning, and thanks for clarifying. Maybe he would be interested now, but of course that would be between him and you guys.

    I also just wanted to say that I do believe you guys all do a good job. You let us have freedom, but you always step in when things get out of hand. It helps make this an enjoyable place to post in.

    Forums are dying in general.
    People usually stick to social media these days.
    I feel forums were a bigger deal in the 90's and 00's
