Hello all,

As you are aware it is becoming difficult for me to maintain the forum on my own, and at the suggestions of other members, I have decided to appoint a new administrator to the forum.

mrpijey is "the chosen one" and he has the same rights as I do on the forum, which includes banning, etc. He won't hesitate to use his new rights, so don't provoke him just to see what will happen.

Thank you.

Andy (Admin)

Thank you Andy, I won't disappoint.

We all know that things aren't as they should be, and I'll do what I can to shape things up. Be nice and I'll be nice in return. Be not so nice and well... let's hope no one finds out. I think this forum is great and I'll do what I must to keep it that way, and I try to be fair and reasonable to everyone.

If anyone got any issues with what I do (or don't) then PM me and we'll solve your problem peacefully.

Have fun! :)

Nice idea

I'm sure you'll do just as good a job as Andy :)

Since he has been an administrator of several forums before, mrpijey was the best choice for the job. His judgment is also a lot better than mine, so I hope squabbles like the one yesterday (Dear Andy topic) won't happen again.

mrpijey doesn't "run" the forum, thats still my job, but he's doing the things I would otherwise do, banning, warning, etc.

excuse me if im wrong but could he not do that as an mod.
I moderate Sniper Redemption Network which is run on phpbb3 and i have the rights to ban, warn, delete posts/topics etc etc

This just seems to be an authority thing to me... like he is meant to look scarier as a admin

just my view on things

We don't run phpBB3, which does not have banning rights as a moderator. And no, he's not meant to look scary as an admin, he is taking over what I would normally do, except behind the scenes stuff such as keeping this site online.

Do I look scary as an admin? Hmm, perhaps I need a haircut then... :) I wasn't promoted to scare members off, I was promoted to help Andy with some of the business on this forum. We all have a real life outside this forum and this way Andy may get a breather sometimes.

Congratulations mrpijey! You are a great guy, and I already thought you were an excellent moderator. You are excellent at helping out, and I appreciate the fact that we now have two administrators. :)

I hope this new position works out for you!

I'd congratulate you, only I don't think your job here got any rosier.
Harder if anything.
