[U2U to me from ilovepizza] "Congrats on becoming a mod!!!" Originally sent by U2U to Cinderloft from ilovepizza: First off, thanks for the congratulations. There is no real secret, I just do my part day in, day out, trying to help build up this site with meaningful content and commentary. I am active a lot, I have some ideas, and I raised the priority of this website in my daily life. Not so much that it interfers with my life, but where some people may have a hobby or something they dedicate time to outside of relationships, work, etc, this is my hobby, my interests, etc. You don't see model airplane builders with 2 years experience crashing a plane into a brick building every day. They learn, get better, and commit time. I was invited to become a mod because this was recognized by the powers that be. Just being who I am is what the secret was. The only choice I had was whether I wanted to become one or not. Of course I said yes, as the offered were ones that interested me a lot, and I believe I can help make them grow. I will still be active in the others, but I shall be concentrating my efforts more directly to the forums I moderate. It does take dedication and work to do it. If I do not have the ability to do it and I recognize the inability, I will gladly step down, as I only want the best for the community we have here. On the topic of stepping down, now that I am considered a Moderator, I am also considered staff. This means I must now bow out of the sanctioned games. I will still be in the Brain Teasers mind you, when time allows it, but I shall not be able to grace the halls of the ::GAMEMASTER:: series. Good luck to all of my fellow participants. This was originally a message written for a U2U reply to ilovepizza, but I feel it deserves to be my official statement on recent developments. And as any good person in some kind of power, I must support my fellow Denyers by announcing my support for the campaign of more smilies. Thank you to all, I look forward to the future. Cinderloft.
