    Default New Moderators and Updated Forum Rules

    Giant in the Playground now has seven new moderators! Please join us in welcoming them in this thread. These new moderators have been chosen through a very careful selection process and have endured through a rigorous training process. They are now in a live training period (as not all technical controls could be demonstrated), and they now act with full modly authority - please heed their official comments and rulings.

    Our newest Moderators (listed alphabetically) and their assigned forums:
    • averagejoe (The Mod They Call Me/Hero in the Playground) - Friendly Banter, Media, Webcomics, Roleplaying Games
    • kpenguin (The Modguin/Penguin in the Playground) - Media, OOTS, Webcomics
    • Mark Hall (The Mod Wonder/Superhero in the Playground) - Roleplaying Games, Homebrew Design, Gaming (Other), OotS
    • SMEE (The Rainbow Mod/Pure Girl in the Playground) - Friendly Banter, Avatar & Signature Issues, Arts & Crafts, OotS
    • The Glyphstone (Great Modthulhu/Eldritch Horror In The Playground) - Roleplaying Games, Homebrew Design, Gaming (Other)
    • Vaynor (The Red Towel/Hoopy Frood in the Playground) -Arts & Crafts, Homebrew Design, Roleplaying Games
    • Zeb the Troll (Troll Patrol/Grandpa in the Playground) - Friendly Banter, Structured Games, Silly Message Board Games, PbP


    Several moderators are formally retiring at this time and we thank them for their service in making this forum what it is today. The full list of retired Moderators/Admins, now includes:

    • RawBearNYC (Voice of a Mod) - Our former Website Support Admin
    • WampaX (Wampinator) - Our former Forum Guru and Admin
    • Baron (Baron von Mod)
    • Gorbash Kazdar (Comrade Gorby)
    • Lilly (Fairy Modmother)
    • Bogotter (Mod Otter)
    • xthemage (X the Mod)


    Please also note that the Forum Rules have been updated to add these moderators, note the retirement other moderators, and make some changes to the Forum Rules themselves. All posters should take this opportunity to review the Forum Rules carefully.

    Rules that supersede Rule 0:

    Rule -1: You're all there to have fun. The GM and the players should never do anything that would limit people's fun, for any in-game or real-life reason.

    Rule -0.5 (corollary): That means that if someone's fun is getting in the way of other people's fun, that person needs to change how they're playing.

    My first post as a moderator. Because I was told to.

    I don't think anyone would want those pancakes even if you paid them to eat them.

    I'm going to bed soon, would it possibly be okay to list the changes in the rules? Thank you.

    (Also, I noticed the rule about violence, would it be acceptable if the violence were off-screen and implied?)

    No, we'd prefer people take this opportunity to review the Forum Rules in their entirety.

    That rule is the same as ever.

    Congratuations to all new moderators. May your skills change the Playground for the better.

    To the departing moderators: while I have not seen your work since my arrival here, I assure you, you will be missed by those that do remember your work.

    We all move onward to new lives, hopefully better ones. Each path that must be traveled is unique to the person on that path. No one else can walk that path besides the person it is destined for. For the new moderators, that path has led them to their current position, and for those that must leave, that path has led them away. Best of luck to your new lives, wherever your path will take you.

    Me? Drifting eternally...

    Congrats to the new mods.
    I am surprised and pleased and very happy for you all.

    "This is why it hurts the way it hurts.
    You have too many words in your head.
    There are too many ways to describe the way you feel.
    You will never have the luxury of a dull ache.
