My reign of tyranny nears its conclusion
I have graduated from school with my Masters program, and my time with Ludeon is coming to a close. I have a new job in my degree field and will have even less time to monitor these forums than I already have. I've had some time here to get to know the personalities and I hope I helped keep things a bit less toxic.

What I'm wanting here is some nominations for me to consider to replace me so this place can continue to be community moderated, and I will give them instructions on Tynan's preferred moderating methods.

Please don't nominate yourself, and keep things on topic. This will be a more strictly moderated thread.

I nominate Astasia.

Also I'll be sad to see you go. You have served well.
the maker of Vanilla expanded mods :D

I don't think Oskar wants to do this :p
Belkar03 Apr 28 @ 1:29pm 
Astasia or Morkonan if they want to do it

I'm just going to opt out right away, I'm not interested in that kind of responsibility or pressure. I've dealt with it in the past, it can be pretty draining, so I appreciate the effort you've put into keeping these forums clean pheanox.

I have no idea who might actually want the task but I nominate:

While I appreciate the thought, I'm opting out as well. I've done enough moderating and administrating message boards for three lifetimes.

Picking a moderator is hard. Ideally it shouldn't be someone who wants the role (those who desire any kind of power should oft not be in power), but it's also tricky to just foist it onto someone who doesn't want it without offering something in return. It's a time-consuming, often thankless job. And you always have to make sure to remain neutral, whether you're actively moderating or just participating as a normal user. If not for that last requirement, there are a lot of people I'd nominate, but as it is there's very few people I can think of apart from Astasia.

I can agree with nominating BlackSmokeDMax though.

Apart from that, the only constructive suggestion I have would be to look at the moderators over on the Ludeon.com forums and see if any of them might consider moderating on Steam?
Just popping in to call OP a chinchilla and wish em well. Good luck dude.

Thanks for your hard work, Pheanox, and good luck with your future career!

Thank you Pheanox. You've done a great job moderating here, and I'm certain you'll succeed in whatever you pursue. Wish you luck!
Hope you find someone good, otherwise its going to be like actual Rimworld in here. People loading corpses into pods and launching them at each other.
Also popping in to thumbs up your work. I've mostly been a lurker but you've done good work since I've been here. I don't know enough about the community to nominate, unfortunately, but God bless on your future career and I hope we get another good moderator to follow.

It'll be sad to see you go, but for what it's worth I'm glad you were here. :cleanseal:
Thankyou, @pheanox. :-)

(And not that anyone's gonna suggest me, but dibs-not-it. I do NOT have the temperament for this. :-p )

^ Not a bad idea.

I have to say all the moderators on the forum were asked if they wanted to moderate here, and they all turned it down. Though I can ask Ramsis if any of the discord moderators are interested.
Jigain Apr 30 @ 8:02am 
That might be a good idea. I'd personally feel more comfortable having an established community moderator (regardless of where they moderate) over having a moderator from the community that I don't feel I can nominate. No offense intended to anyone I've not nominated (because that would be a LOT of people to offend), but I just feel like it's too important of a position to hand over to just any user.

I nominate Kostriktor, guy knows how to make good troll post.

oh you said no toxic moderators...
