Eh that's kind of apples and oranges. All i would imagine is that a mod could just switch the boxes, couldn't they? Or can they not do that.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Mods don't get those kind of powers. They can move around threads, respond to reports, manage a few filters and members. They can't add new boards or edit/move them.

What if they join all of their rings of power together?

Does that give them admin abilities or just summon that jackass Captain Planet?

I think we're going to need the hidden keys for that.
But good luck finding those after all these years.

Didn't someone actually find them all at one point?

I was never informed of anyone finding mine.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Who has the best chance of reaching Steve to get him to bump someone up (presumably LadyM) to administrator?

I always assumed we could summon him by playing his old podcast theme song backward into a mirror.

Failing that, probably LadyM herself, if she'd be willing.
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

As far as I know the reason that Steve is the only administrator is because that is the way Steve wants it.

LadyM discussed this before with us, I think. The last time we let our planning get ahead of reality.

I feel it would be more visible to everyone in the forum.

You think if 'Everything Else' was under 'Music' it would be nearly as active?
Well, do you?
There is, of course, a difference between having a laugh with someone, and having a laugh at their expense

Well it couldn't hurt to have LadyM ask.

No. If you look further down the topic you will see I provided reasoning as well.

So in the past I suggested having another admin and Steve prefers to have total control of his forum so that's not going to happen. I can reach him but honestly I don't really think we need to nor do I think he would agree to changing anything. A thread is only as popular as the interest it generates. It works as it is and we know where everything is. It took a lot of coaxing to get an Art section.

I know this hasn't been posted in for two weeks but I just got back from South America and it's new to me.

Always good to suggest though. :)

Seems odd to me to have total control of a forum and yet not be present, basically ever.
