Hey all,

After all the drama in the last few days, I felt as if we needed another moderator to keep things under control. He's another old school GTA modder I've known since I was a n00b years ago, so he does know a thing or two about the GTA scene. :)

I know some of you might be a bit upset that I hired another relativly new GTAForums member, but I really felt as if we needed somewhat of an 'outsider' given the current circumstances. So please don't give him (or me) a hard time about it, or get too angry at the fact I skipped over some of the local vets who might deserve mod-ship. I honsetly think we need someone with as few connections to the drama here as possible.

i got to agree with the others here.  we don't need an outsider.  i think a large part of the problem with Cerbera is that he is an "outsider".  the fact that no-one thinks he's a good mod is just amplified so much more by it. :(

Erm, actually, I've been thinking about this for the last couple of days, ever since the recent drama started. And like I said in the first post, Onyx is an old school GTA head, so his joining 5 days ago should bear little signifigance...

@RD- Do you have a better idea on how to get someone who's impartial an unbiased to what's going on here? No? I thought not. *yawn*

@MMmS- All personal differences aside, I'd like to publicily say thanks for all the work you did as a moderator. It's too bad things had to work out how they did, but oh well, that's life.

Anyhow, nobody should worry about Onyx turning out like another 'Cerbera'. While I still stand by Cerb's moderatory decisions (for the most part), I'll admit he is a bit to strict in some cases. Onyx has always struck me as a bit more laid-back, so hopefully it'll work out fine.... Just as long as he doesn't let the power go to his head. :p

*throws spoon at Onyx*

This is just an idea, but maybe in the future when you want a mod, you pick like 10-15 people that you think would make good mods, and have the members vote between those members in General Chat, and that way not as many people would complain, but thats just an idea I made up.

I don't mean to sound offensive to the new guy but this is a f*ckin' joke!!

There are so many quality members here that would love to moderate, people who have been here years, amassed thousands of posts! What about them!

It is going to be so hard for this new guy because he will have minimal respect .. having only been here 2 minutes.

You shouldn't have said that, they'll be all over you! :D

Do you have an MSN account?  I'd suggest not making it public because you'll just get swamped with people typing 2 sentances then buggering off. :/

Anyways, nice to see a familiar face around here.  As for me being an 'outsider' heh, err, these forums are actually newer to the 'scene than I am, LOL! :pp


EDIT:  BTW mate, in the Old Skool section's pinned topic about troubleshooting and optimising the new Gta version I posted a different place to download it, which is way better than the rockstar one. :)

your respect means nada to me to be quite truthful

I am here to moderate these forums as I see fit and if that causes friction the so be it.I am not here to make friends but to do a job I am very capable of.

No problem mate. All I'm saying is that Cebera is being given a hard time because he was relatively knew when he was given modship.

Oh and you are SERIOUSLY kidding yourself if you think that the fact you've only been here a week is not going to affect people's attitude towards you .. and you know that!

I think that you are basing your emphasis on the fact that I care!

I don't my fellow member

I was asked to come here and moderate in the gap left by a recently departed mod.I was planned to be a mod here before the other one left as Illie asked me the other day.

Welcome Onyx,

Just wondering - you don't care about Uno's points -
but is the same for all members?
do you care what any of us have to say?
is it just when we say things you don't want to hear?
just wondering...

I think that all mods should listen and take notice of what all members have to say, otherwise - what is the point of you being part of the forum comminity?

Anyway - that's about all mods.

Not to you in particular - but I think it could have been left a while before giving onyx his position, especially because of all the anger in the forums at this time.

Oh well, hope you enjoy your time at the - not for our entertainment - forums.
