Yeah, doing it differently this time Smile. We need two new mods, welcoming applications from anywhere. Geographical remoteness could be advantageous. No reward whatsoever apart from kudos and occasional abuse, full training given and your first two disastrous operations upon threads completely forgiven.

Please apply via private message to me explaining why you want to become a mod. Closing date is the 26th September.

No, I'm not joking.

No free subscription? Or was that an old inside joke?

It's sporadically true, but not at the moment.

You take the free subscription, the next thing you know you're living in a locked box wearing a gimp suit in an oubliette beneath Fortean Towers.

Stu clearly hasn't read the small print...

Oh but I have. Which is why I'm not living in a locked box wearing a gimp suit in an oubliette beneath Fortean Towers.

I'm out and about in shopping centres in a gimp suit raising money for charidee and generating stories for the mag.

Are the ex-mods kept in the oubliette?

You'll find out soon enough..

The two new mods are Ramonmercado and Moooksta.

Ramon will be sticking to thread modding (opening, closing, moving, splitting and merging threads) whilst Mooks will be a full moderator (all the above plus enabling & banning members.)

So be nice to them. By the way, there was only one non-Brit application, and they couldn't yet commit - but I'm keeping their name in mind, and when they've the time they'll probably get the gig too.

Who was that? Fidel Castro or Kim Jong?

Might this be a good time to point out I've always though Ramon and Mooks were outstanding individuals and that in my minds eye of what posters look like, they undoubtedly are Adonis like?

Wink

Seriously though....

Thanks for keeping this place rollin' guys.

Good eggs, good choices.
As Cultjunky says, thank you for volunteering.
