1. He actually is quite active. (Check his forum stats, if you don't believe me.)
2. Those boards are easily our busiest boards.
Rest in peace, Walkazo.

1. He's fifth-most active. Sure, a lot of users aren't too far behind him in activity, but there's more to it than just that.

2. Well, come to think of it, Forum Games is more active than General Discussion; but it's not like it needs any more moderation there than the G-Mods give.
Rest in peace, Walkazo.

1. Responsibility, a good attitude, experience. He met the criteria for a moderator.
2. A lot more topics get closed, moved, and the like in that board.
Rest in peace, Walkazo.

1. I'll admit to the fact that he's not as active as some users, but he has been quite active as of late, making several posts a day. I've seen him on for at least 3 hours a day.
2. Some were, yes. Others were topics that were made in the wrong board, or were completely unnecessary.
Rest in peace, Walkazo.

Okay, I'm in a good mood. What board do you see more in need of a moderator than General Discussion?
Rest in peace, Walkazo.

I see.

Well, I feel that it'll work out fine. But if it doesn't, something will be worked out. :)

Looks like someone swapped SG27 and Neu's places as Local Mod. Not sure who did it, but I won't change it because it won't cause any damage.

I was wondering whether it was you or not. I wonder why they got swapped though. ;o

Not that I mind. :P

Nope, wasn't me. Though, there is some irony to it. (I won't go into that though. :P)

I understand deleting the Mario forum, but why the Donkey Kong one? If WarioWare is considered to be a seperate franchise from the Mario series, then why can't Donkey Kong Country?

I'll go over the reasoning for each, just to cover all the bases:

Mario - It occurred to us that Marioverse covers Mario, so having a specialized board under a specialized board was rather redundant.
Donkey Kong - In the three years it was around, it had a grand total of 48 topics, 46 of which had three posts max. The board wasn't getting enough traffic to warrant keeping it, or so we felt.
Wario - While it's not very active either, it gets a steady amount of posts per week, so I wouldn't call it dead.

I feel a little nervous with the delete thread button so close to the last post button...

There's always a confirmation screen before removing a topic.

Except for me. The forum has learned long ago to not question me.

"Are you sure you want to delete this?"
Why do you think I clicked the button, jerkass? Get to deleting things before I scramble your IP and feed it to Rudniki.

I use checkboxes instead of buttons. When I was moderating my own board it was an easier way to handle topics. Personally, anyway.

Dude, that was so awesome. XD

I turned off the 'popup confirmation' option in Safari, so I never get a confirmation.
Rest in peace, Walkazo.

Talk to Stooben or somebody. I'm keeping out of chat matters.

I believe I've said this somewhere else, but the Ops decided against giving Patrollers auto-Op status.
Rest in peace, Walkazo.

I'm surprised this cool new feature wasn't announced here.

It was always in the system. It just never worked.
