I hardly contributed to the thread but I'm sorry too... but that is completely unacceptable! I am appalled! Startled! Befuddled! I am... mad! (I'm running out of words people help me)

Anyways, I thought it was common knowledge that you can't "vote" per se on who becomes mod. Isn't it listed in the rules of commenting somewhere?

and act like the family we are.


Speaking of which, Have you ever considered updating it?

[quote=pang]our community, it is like a family. We talk about issues going on after getting back from school and work (support, news)..we spend family time together in the living room (popular media, video games), we goof off in the backyard (Forum Games), Argue during dinner (WEPR), read each others' diaries (AMW), and then just have our general randomness (Tavern).

And just look around...you can't deny that we really are a family.
-We have a uncle who is already ready to help, and always with a smile on his face (ModDayCee)
-A grandpa who doesn't understand why the younglings find certain things funny (Patrick)
-A fitness-obsessed cousin/brother (GOM)
-A Yankee lovin' brother who will cheer as loud as he can when something good happens with the Yanks, and has his room decked out in their gear (pick)
-A twitchy cousin who talks to himself in the corner (AceofSky)
-An uncle who, even when he doesn't do much, you still think is oh so cool (Ernie)
-A pet buny (jeol)
-The lil brother who seems to be goin through a &quothase"..in this instance it is speaking 3rd person (killersup)
-A pet Ferret you talk to for comfort when you need help (Ferret)
-The lil brother that just found out about star wars and dresses up and acts like the characters all the time (Darth Ca...er...Jacen)
-The lil ones who we love for how they can act, despite how we'd be annoyed if it was someone else acting so (R2D2 and Manly)
-A grandpa and 2 uncles that always seem to be prepared for a debate at any time..and are unbeatable (Mage, nich, & Kasic)
-The twins...who are both very similar but at the same time very different (Sal and pang)[/quote]

I am sure there are people who you can add/remove.

No harm was done towards Ivan.


Allow me to rephrase, No harm was intended towards Ivan, but apparently harm was done to him otherwise he wouldn't be offended.

To be honest, I'm confused as to why he would be offended.


That's not our place to find out why. Everybody has feelings, and obviously Ivans were hurt. This is not the place to drag that up right now.

I didn't contribute to the thread at all, since I didn't want to support breaking of the rules, but I'm offering my apologies as well. Since we are, in a way, a family on AG, care should be taken not to take jokes too far. You can't forget that we are still people with feelings, and those feelings should be respected. While it may have seemed funny at the time, you have to remember that someone is on the end of the joke, and apparently Ivan wasn't the best candidate. From what I gathered, Ivan appeared to not want to be the center of attention, or at the middle of an obvious violation of the rules, and those of you who don't see why he would be offended or hurt obviously have never been in that position before.

Again, my apologies to Ivan. While I never really got to know him that well, it's a shame that something like this "joke" almost drove someone away. I'm very surprised that we would do this to a fellow AG user. It's a real shame.

Wait..you mean you all are actually real?
Ohhh man

you have to remember that someone is on the end of the joke


Wasn't a person...was the idea of voting for a mod.

or at the middle of an obvious violation of the rules


Again, should be noted that such a violation was in fact dealt with properly..but the proper actions were not taken.

and those of you who don't see why he would be offended or hurt obviously have never been in that position before.

Yes, being a mod I have no idea what is is like to have a thread dedicated to just you. Nor do I know what it feels like to have aforementioned thread contain nothing but vitriol, abuse and offensive imagery.
Or to be voted off as a mod because everyone apparently despises the air you breathe.
Gosh, I wouldn't be here if any of that happened to me once let alone several times.

Why are people still talking about this? Why can't we just let it go? It wouldn't even be an issue if we'd just forget about it.

True, there is mostly nothing to stop it, so every post now is mostly no point. Anyway, goodbye.
