Hey, shouldn't we at least include a category for former admins, partly so that people could at least know that there used to be a different set of administrators for the site, and partly in honor of Fast Eddie and Janitor's contributions to the site and their status as co-founders (along with... whoever it was that formed the third member of the Founding Trinity)?

You mean Gus?

I'll think about it. Might want to put it in the edit requests thread where more people will see it.

There's a thread in Wiki Talk about this here. Check it out if you're interested.

Re: Cut:

Another rogue cut request, likely the same vandal as yesterday under a new sock. Please decline.

I could've sworn Some Sort Of Troper's name was on this page as a mod and/or cutmaster.

Come to think of it, Glenn Magus Harvey was also listed as a Cut Master. What happened to cause them being dropped?

For various reasons, SSOT didn't work out. The details are really not anything that needs to be aired for general discussion or comment.

GMH wasn't a cutmaster. He was given limited mod abilities during the 2010 MIT Mystery Hunt, so that he could act in the threads in the TVT team subforum. When the Hunt was over and the subforum was deactivated, he was removed from the list, since he had no mod abilities anywhere else on the forum.

Okay, I was just making sure that those names weren't accidentally left out.

... And I guess I shouldn't ask about Bobby G, either, since it'll probably get me the exact response of "it's classified". I think I already know why he's no longer on the list, though I'm going to keep it for myself.

So, Willbyr and ccoa were just dropped, presumably by accident.

Do we leave them into the "standard mod" category, or do we make a Moderator + Engineer category for them?

lu127 has said this on the matter:

They're still engineers. Just ask Eddie what to do.

And I have said, and are still saying, this on the matter:

Willbyr and ccoa have both posted mod hat posts, edited locked pages, and done miscellaneous other mod stuff. No question as to that. But is there really a difference between mod and mod+engineer?

ETA: I added them back on the Moderator list.

^The badge that links here is the difference. Also, they are supposed to be more specific-forum-oriented - Willbyr in IP and ccoa in TRS.

Can I remove GMH? The Duck Soup forum is long gone.

Is there a reason for Fighteer not to be on the main page's list? And what category does he fit in?

I am humbly requesting that the Edit Lock be removed from the Blood Knight page. I think the debate over the image has died down already. (The reason why I'm asking here is because I have no idea how to contact the powers that be directly.)

I don't think this is a good place to request things. There are contact links beside each member on the main page.

Where did Janitor's name go in this list? Her removal from the staff list, aside from being unannounced, isn't in the page history!

That's...exceptionally strange. She does still appear on the Cut Master page, though this may be an oversight.

OK, the reason she's off the page is because she can't access P Ms right now. So don't worry, she's still around, and will likely be put back on the page once that's been resolved.

... She can't access PMs? That's very odd.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
