    Default This party's over.

    Just kidding!

    Howdy people,

    As some of you may have noticed from the SWRPGNetworks forum, there has been a moderator reshuffle. I'm moving over here to Rumours* and Speculation to take the reins. So, yeah, er, nice to be here! I'm sure we'll get along just fine, and I look forward to chatting with you fine folk.

    Cheers,

    Jon

    Hey! I resemble that remark!

    Um, big rumours about me are that in the next month I am travelling Europe (Spain, Italy, Egypt*, Greece), before returning to New Zealand. That's the biggest rumour I can think of.

    And in terms of a ladies man, I think only the lady I am currently at home with could comment on that .

    Jon

    * Yes, I know Egypt is not technically in Europe. But it's very close.

    A New Zealander eh?

    Awesome - we seem to be quite well-represented here on the boards.

    Oh yeah - and that being said - i have complete confidence in your ability to quash rumours and stuff..

    Does this mean that you're gonna fix this forum's name? It's the most annoying blatant spelling mistake on the whole of the Holonet.

    (Canada is underrepresented on the boards, but over-represented in the higher rank-echelons, btw.)

    Since when is Canada overrepresented in anything except moose population? *skeptical look*

    Actually, we did comment amongst ourselves the other day that this board is administered by Imperials but moderated entirely by Rebels and scoundrels. Who's propagandising now, baby?!

    But I'm curious; unless I'm mistaken, of the new moderators all are American or, in Ronin's case, crazy Gaijin.

    Hmmm. While I wish I had (to quote Palpatine) "unlimited power", unfortunately I think changing the board name is beyond me. I can have a word to the admins about it...

    Help! The Germans are invading!

    Okay, so given that the main language used here is English, I guess we're only really discussing the use of UK or American English. But that's for the input, darth_wyld and Uron Teff.

    As a side note, do you guys read the holonet in English? Or use some sort of translation program? In fact, is there a translation option on the Holonet? I have a feeling there might be...

    Edit: Yeah, there is a drop down translation box. Nifty!

    Er, anyway, I guess we're getting a bit off topic here. Not that this thread really has a topic, other than "I'm the new moderator". So...

    No, most of the time I use those bablefishoid programs to get a good laugh... take a german story, translate it to english and then back and forth and read all four stages... can be very funny...

    No, I use only my brain for translation (and online dictionaries )

    Well, let's see...Canada has 33-34 million people, and as high-ranking active non-mods we have TJR and myself.

    The US has...almost 300 million. So for every me or TJR, there should be 9 or 10 American active non-mods on the Holonet. I don't think that (with so many non-mods going mod on us) there are 20 active high-ranking non-mods period. I could be wrong, depending on the definition of 'active.' As for active rankers including those who also happen to be mods-I still think that we are overrepped. Of course, nowhere near as much as New Zealand, but still.

    Hmmm. While I wish I had (to quote Palpatine) "unlimited power", unfortunately I think changing the board name is beyond me. I can have a word to the admins about it...

    Anything's appreciated.
