I'm proud to announce that OnceDear has been promoted to a full-blown, non-secret, green admin! He has been a secret admin for about a year and did a great job and stomping out spammers and warning me of potential scammers and trouble makers. We're lucky that he accepted the job.

Please be nice to him. It is a thankless job being an admin as you go about with a big target on your back.

I'd like to remind everyone that it is nothing personal when we have to issue a warning or a suspension. As I have said at least 100 times, this is just an Internet forum. It is not the end of the world if someone gets suspended for something. I'm friends on a personal basis with many people here who have been suspended multiple times. We mods even suspend ourselves and each other. It is just part of the cat and mouse game, much like advantage play.

That said, I'd like to give OD a give welcome to the "green club" and hope you will join me.

p.s. It may take up to a day for the promotion to take effect behind the scenes.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Thanks for stepping up, OnceDear. Or, I guess, more like stepping into the sunshine. Yeah, let’s call it sunshine. Kidding aside, your service is appreciated.

As a former secret admin who also once got suspended, all I can say is, good luck. And thanks for taking this thankless job.


To anyone who aspires to be an admin: stop thinking about it. It is most definitely, NOT an advantage play...
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗
