In english my language skills tend to make me look like a drunk chimpanzee, and I`m never able to make my case in the same way as in my native language. Crunchbang is the only international community I participate somewhat actively in, because here it doesn`t mather if I`m perceived to have the mind of a chimp. In the #!-community everybody is accepted just as they seem to be big_smile

Laughing my arse off!
Well, in this case, you've naught to be worried in the least, though I'd daresay regardless of where it was or by how many one is remembered from elsewhere shouldn't weigh upon your mind in the least to begin with.
And I'm always calm, yet assertive as proper etiquette demands.
Your reply appears to infer that you may have had an impolite ruckus with me at some point in time in the past that you may not remember.
Hence, the above explaining that such with me at least is not the case, nor shan't be for that matter on the merit of myself being very experienced in dealing with one on the merits of their own politeness or potential impoliteness thereof.
I've yet to not be satisfied with the end result accordingly.
A timely, and well placed comment obfuscates many a misunderstanding as needed.

P.S.-Your English is quite understandable and satisfactory to read as it stands, so no worries in that regard as well.
If you care to be worried about the usage of English, keep a fair eye upon me and you'll soon discover I'm everybit the babbling monkey locked in a cage chattering away ceaselessly at the displeasure of being caged, figuratively speaking. yikes

Ah my fine feathered friend of a Sage, surely my own legendary perspicacity comes nowhere near your own insight into any given matter of substance reading as how I appear to be the only one foolish enough to openly indulge such with what some might refer to as gleefully blatant disregard. big_smile

Re: How we moderate your forum - feedback encouraged

To get back on-topic, I don't have any problems with the way the forum is run. It's always a pleasure to return, supported by the fact that I've never posted as much to any other distribution forum or other. Most of my registrations stay in the very low numbers of posts and they often do not particularly inspire to check back.

Thanks to the mods, don't worry about making decisions where you feel necessary and implement them. It's been great so far. Hoping to hear from VastOne again.

Lol. You babble just fine big_smile

PS! As for my slight worries, it`s just that I recall a couple of linux-people I`ve really crashed with. But you don`t sound like any of those people. They were of the pretentious type, and nothing bugs me more than people that thinks the entire world should bow to them, just because they`ve developed something, or because they are some sort of self-proclaimed expert in a certain area. I don`t care if it`s Bill Gates, Steve Ballmer or Linus Torvald. I expect the same kind of respect from them, as I would expect from "ordinary" people. As people are just people to me, regardless of who they are. Needless to say, I`m not of those that idolizes anyone, as I don`t think that anyone is any better than me big_smile

This is why Each (singular) is to be dealt with on the merit of their Own (singular) actions.
It negates any useless stereotypical self-importance that an individual may have and does wonders for drawing boundaries along those very lines.
Freedom is a right when earned and not abused as entitlement.
Anything outside of that borders on tyranny.
From there, the truly free learn that this same freedom is in fact a privilege earned by virtue of simply doing that which is right.

No worries. The important thing is how much I`m worth in my own mind, and I`m thrilled that your self-image surpasses your impression of my worth. That`s the way everyone should feel. Even if you obviously tell yourself lies, that`s actually a very good skill to have. Not only telling yourself lies, but actually beliving them. Well Done  O:)

Re: How we moderate your forum - feedback encouraged

btw I've just noticed that the names of moderators no longer appear on the forum index. Are they secret?
It looks as if chillicampari is now a moderator (she's lived up to the #! tradition by closing a couple of threads), though I didn't see any announcement - anyone else?

Curious as well! If there are new moderators, I want to know about it so I can adjust my attitude towards them  ]:D

Nope, just me (and yep, moderators aren't showing up in the forum index, not sure why). I've closed a couple, but I'd much rather kill spam than close threads. big_smile

@chillicampari:  Unia didn't say which way the attitude would be adjusted. ]:D

I agree that there should have been an announcement at the time of CC's deputizing, along with a huuuge parptay. 8o  There hasn't been enough debauchery here lately. O:)

I guess I could announce myself, but that would be kind of weird.

+1. I have a very hard time reading posts from anyone with an animated avatar. I usually just skip over them.

Re: How we moderate your forum - feedback encouraged

A democratic moderating approach would employ a revolving set of moderators rather than a select few, which breeds corruption. Power corrupts, distributing it mitigates such issues.

We're here daily, keeping an eye on things. We may not post much but that does not mean that we are unaware of what's going on. Philip and I both have full time day jobs, and when we're at home, I do the domestic goddess stuff whilst Philip maintains CrunchBang. We don't have a lot of "us" time, as you can imagine. sad

We are very grateful to all of our moderators (past and present) who are an enormous help to both Philip and I in what is sometimes seen as a thankless task.  We have no control over who registers and participates in our forums; we just hope that whilst the members are here and participating, that they do so in a friendly and open way. CrunchBang forums have always had a reputation of being friendly and helpful - this is something that we would like to maintain but sometimes we are at the mercy of those members who wish to try and destroy something that doesn't belong to them.

As you can imagine, CrunchBang is Philip's baby and he is very protective of it. He selects his moderators carefully and with consideration to their contribution and positive impact on the forums.

Why he made me a moderator, goodness only knows!  lol
