PostPosted: Thu Jul 06, 2006 11:21 am    Post subject: An ode to our moderators and admins :) Reply with quote

This morning I hummed the Ghostbusters theme and I had the idea of a small song to our beloved mods and admins. ;)

Quote:
Postbusters…
If there's somethin' strange in your neighborthread
Who ya gonna call (postbusters)
If one mean troll is flaming in your poll
Who ya gonna call (postbusters)

I ain't afraid a no posts
I ain't afraid a no posts
If you're seein' things runnin' thru your thread
Who can you call (postbusters)
A liberal man insults a conservative American
who ya gonna call (postbusters)
I ain't afraid a no posts
I ain't afraid a no posts
Who ya gonna call (postbusters)
Post your political vow and start the flaming now.
An call (postbusters)

I ain't afraid a no posts
I hear it likes the girls
I ain't afraid a no posts
Who you gonna call (postbusters)
Mm…if you've had a dose
Of a freaky post baby
You better call postbusters
Lockin' threads just feels good
I ain't afraid a no posts

Don't get caught with posting porn oh no…postbuster
When you get a death threat
and it messes up your head
I think you better call postbusters
Ooh... who you gonna call (postbusters)
Who you gonna call (postbusters)
Ah, I think you better call (postbusters)

I can't read you…(postbusters)
Who you gonna call (postbusters)
Louder postbusters
Who you gonna call (postbusters)
Who you can call postbusters…(till fade)


I hope this will become the official anthem of the moderators. ;)

'bout time the moderators were praised for keeping these forums tidy, and the admins for making them run like clockwork (as well as keeping the forums tidy too).

I do sometimes wonder what it's like to be one of "them". With power comes responsibility, and also the risk of being "grudged" by users who don't like mods/admins simply because of their power, often to right a wrong which they [the user] have commited.

The ability to take action at the right time to keep the forums tidy (e.g. locking and banning, moving and merging threads etc) and keeping cool about it is a talent. More praise should go to many of the mods and admins here; not only do they do the housekeeping, but also take part in discussions with users with what they talk about, just like they were users themselves.

Unfortunately I'm not that creative when it comes to poems and parodies like that, so all I can do is raise my glass to the mods and admins.

Keep up the good work. :D

I'm an admin on a Mandriva Board. We're not nearly as big having only about 16,000 users. But I must say the mods and admins here do a great job. Our guidelines are a lot stricter so we don't have any many conflicts. But I've been called an asshole for doing my job (user got suspended for three days), had pornography posted about me (I'm female) and a bunch of other stuff. It can be a very trying job at times. Then off course there's the whole issue of keeping the board up and running correctly. Keep up the good work guys! I love this board! :)
