What is the first thing you would do if you were a mod?

This is intended to be a silly thread. What would be the first use of your moderator powers?

I would finally learn all the details of the "Hyper Chicken" incident.

    Good luck with that... It's in a fairly well hidden thread nowadays :)

    @mlnevese You aren't kidding. I've combed the public forums and can't find anything. Even comments have been removed from profiles.

    @Arctodus Well then :p

    @Arctodus What would be the opposition to the bard party?

    I'd ban everyone that dislikes Aerie faster than chitika fastpaws.

    If you became a moderator the first thing you'd do would be reading all the sticky threads in the moderation area... and some of our internal discussions... then you'd have to learn how all the moderation tools work, some are not that obvious :)

    Then you'd finally learn THE TRUTH :wink:


    Ohh... and maybe we'd finally reveal to you what the Hyperchicken was :)

    Well, obviously a ban, but it would be followed most likely a total investigation from the Fearunian Desk of Bard Population Control (commonly known as the FDBPC), to make sure the propaganda doesn't spread out incontrollably. What, you think this is not serious ?!?!

    (Then, against my own will, I would... in total secret, admit that... I... too... LOVE BARDS !! ... but that's a secret that can't be told...)

    I would roleplay a different person each day (like Mugabe or Trump for example) and to keep JuliusBorisov happy I'd promote the first person to guess correctly who I was roleplaying.

    No mention of providing promotes here and there yet?

    Well, it's quite obvious that people around here would absolutely misuse their new power for their own self gain... It will be a useful thread next time you need to promote someone to moderator.
    I believe the last time we needed a new moderator we had a list of potential candidates... maybe we should start a black list as well :)

    About banning every other moderator, I'm not sure if the forum software would allow me to ban @JuliusBorisov... and I'm not curious enough to try that just to see if it works :)

    Team up with @mlnevese and ban pun users. Starting with those with a punned username.

    I would destroy @mlnevese as my first duty in response to the March 2014 Incident.

    With that twitching corpse left behind in the dark alley in which I exit from, will I proceed to the Guess the Next Poster thread and remove any reference of ever being there, so as to no longer continue receiving thread updates to one of many inane topics found here in which I foolishly participated in.

    As the smoldering remains of that action curl into the air behind me, shall I enter the development department and make myself a rose badge.

    Just. For. Me!

    Sitting in a dark corner, would I cackle while I enjoyed the scent of the rose, ready to embark on the next culling which deserved my immediate attention.

    Or perhaps the meaning of a joke thread isn't obvious to some ;)

    They’d run up a huge tab and all sneak out before paying.

    And knock up all the women-folk, bipedal or not.
