Say congrats to our new administrator, wirthling. He is basically now my second in command around here and can moderate any of the forums.

Oh and I added a Chat Room as well, although I don't see it. Hopefully it is there somewhere.

PS And our traffic here isn't bad. We are averaging about 60,000,000 views a month.

Wirthling???

Yes, wirthling. Is this an issue? He has been asking me for a long time to be an administrator.

I mean great guy, I like him a lot, but don't you need a strong man for the job? Somebody to keep them in line?

Somebody like JB3?

Wirthling will be equipped with an extra large Machete Baseball Bat to deal with any forum issues, so it shouldn't be a problem.

Well I guess if Wirthling wants it then fucking hell, good luck to the guy and congrats! I mean it's not like he's going to ban me lol *gulp*

First of all, can we take a look at this guy's CV? His own forum at wirthling.com is overrun by Estonian dudes hawking work visas and "genuine Britney [sic] Murphy death certificates." The only other presence there is Sprague Dawley, whom is given free rein to spew his offensive Japanophilia unchecked, and is the main reason Bigwig stopped posting there.

Wirthling is the Kliff Kingsbury of new mod hires.

I am kind of underwhelmed by the power. I can so some things with topics -- move, delete, lock/unlock, pin/unpin, add a poll -- and I can edit or delete posts and I can ban or delete users (*locks eyes with briggm*) or edit their profiles, but I do not have access to any of the stuff I was hoping to have access to, like custom CSS or being able to see everyone naked.

My promise: I will not edit profiles or posts unless they contain something of dubious legality or unless maybe if you are briggm.

Yeah, I will try to give you access to all of that in the next day or so. Particularly the seeing everyone naked part. We rulers gotta have perks.

Ah, OK, thanks for all of this. I promise not to abuse your trust.

Wasn't everyone worried that KE8 was going to die and this site would sit unmoderated until his Amex expired? I appreciate the forethought, but Wirthling is like 8 months away from dropping dead, tops.

KE8, I hope you don't disappear for 8 months after I ask this, but can you have this account's email address changed to one you and wirthling can share, so he can login as owner and make payments in the event you die again?

I am demoting some inactive mods, promoting at least one poster to a modship and changing the names of some of the sub-forums too. Like my daddy always said "When it's time to change you have to rearrange. Sha na na na, na na na na. Sha na na na na."

I am not sure if slack is still going or what, but...maybe we can start up a new chat revolution?

You need to join us in DYNECHAT4000.

Very little political discussion there.  Well, some.

Took a stab in the dark and guessed that special admin tools might be under /admin and when I go there I see a message that says this: "Although you are an administrator, you have not been assigned any Website Toolbox Admin Area permissions by the owner of the forum." So if you were wondering how to make me more godlike -- uhh KE8like, I mean -- sounds like you want to look for "Website Toolbox Admin Area" settings, and you might find them at https://kingelessar8.forumchitchat.com/admin.

Ok, some of the changes are in place. Some sub-forum name changes, TheVictorian is now the mod for 24FPS, and I somewhat obviously changed the forum look. This is an experiment, so tell me what you think. Sighs in advance.

Wirthling I am still working on giving you absolute power, but that link you gave me won't even let me in! I will see what I can do tomorrow.

I like the new look, but hate the new time stamps. There seems to be a problem with chronological order.

The redesign, although that may have been KE8. I actually don't hate it; I really like it on mobile, not sure if I like it as much on a desktop environment. I'm missing the "skip to latest post" button that used to be next to the threads.

The design change was mine. Except for the parts people don't like, that was all wirthling.

Request: There's a way to jump to the last page of a thread when you open it, but can a button for that be added from the forum page? In the old design it was somewhere on the right side of the thread title.

Is there a way to block posters? Or for mods to enable blocking? I'm sick of Wirthling's shit. 
nothing.

Yeah, I second that. At the very least, I'd like the option to replace all of wirthling's text with cock pics. I don't even mind the ethnicity of the cocks, in all honesty.

I like the lighter colours so much better; I did not like coming here to that blue-grey.
Can we have some borders between the posts though? I don't feel safe.
