View Full Version : So I heard Jubeh was staying on the old site....

Just wondering if there would be a new mod...? XD

EDIT: Well he says he is but I dunno. I may delete this post if no one replies.

jubeh
12-01-2010, 07:03 PM
Are you saying hayashida isn't good enough.

Because I think he's good enough.

Ozzaharwood
12-01-2010, 07:07 PM
No, he definitely is. It's just that what if he goes on vacation, his internet goes down, or he isn't on for a couple of days? Rio said she wanted 2 or more mods on the oekaki for that reason, so I just assumed...

I KNOW. When you assume you make an "ass" out of "u" and "me".

Rio
12-01-2010, 07:09 PM
Yeah, I don't mind adding a new mod as Jubeh said he didn't want to be one here. I wonder when Hammie's gonna show up... If she doesn't, I may need to find two new mods instead of one. :|

jubeh
12-01-2010, 07:11 PM
Hammie is most likely not.

Ozzaharwood
12-01-2010, 07:13 PM
-Cough- I'll volunteer -Cough- XD

No matter what I do I always come back, so there really is no helping it. I'm on all the time too, so blegh.

It may be hard being two mods at once though O____O

jubeh
12-01-2010, 07:16 PM
If you want my two cents I don't think you would be a good mod Oz.

Rio
12-01-2010, 07:17 PM
Wut! Hammie's not? Awww. Alright then. Guess we need some new blood! :stabs Oz: One down. I need to find another....

jubeh
12-01-2010, 07:19 PM
That being said if the new mods need advice or run into any snags feel free to PM me on old MT and I will be happy to help out.

Ozzaharwood
12-01-2010, 07:19 PM
Cool. Jubeh, if you don't think so could you give me some advice? Modding on the oekaki isn't difficult, and actually is fun. But it may be different here. Any ideas?

jubeh
12-01-2010, 07:20 PM
Like I said just PM me if anything comes up.

Ozzaharwood
12-01-2010, 07:21 PM
Oh whoops, I literally just posted that two seconds after you posted yours.

Joosh
12-01-2010, 07:22 PM
wait can Jubeh really stay on the old site? You'll leave it running?

jubeh
12-01-2010, 07:22 PM
Just follow john's lead. Don't ban without consensus and develop impenetrable stances on forum matters.

Rio
12-01-2010, 07:24 PM
wait can Jubeh really stay on the old site? You'll leave it running?

Yes, it'll remain up as long as people still use it.

@ Oz
OK, you're a mod now.

Ozzaharwood
12-01-2010, 07:24 PM
Yeah, I've watched you guys on the last forum and have learned. That's going to make some things less fun though. DX Oh well.

jubeh
12-01-2010, 07:25 PM
What was fun was back before we had the report feature and I had to read every single new post.

pajamajam
12-01-2010, 07:27 PM
Man, no offense, but I don't really like the idea of Oz as a mod.

Ozzaharwood
12-01-2010, 07:27 PM
Lol, that would suck. Lucky me huh? ;D

-Starts reading over all the rules- Blargh

Rio
12-01-2010, 07:28 PM
Really? There was that bit of a gaff in the other forum but all in all he hasn't really done anything that screams "RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!!". Got a better alternative?

jubeh
12-01-2010, 07:30 PM
I feel bad talking about a person like they are not here so I'm gonna stop at what I said before.

As for alternative, there aren't a lot of big personalities on MT anymore. Psy would be good if he would accept.

Also rio let me talk to hammie before you decide to replace her or not. She may want to join the new forum.

pajamajam
12-01-2010, 07:31 PM
Not really, no. Maybe being a real mod will make him mature a little.

Ozzaharwood
12-01-2010, 07:33 PM
Meh, oekaki modding is fine with me if people don't see me as a good fit.

tbh, C-Fox seems like a great candidate for one.

Rio
12-01-2010, 07:35 PM
Yeah, I've asked Psy before and he turned it down. As for Hammie, cool - thanks man!

@ Pajamajam
I think he is maturing. He did recently handle a trouble that arose recently in the MOB. :thumbs up for that Oz:

Max
12-01-2010, 07:38 PM
I'd do it. I mean, the only reason I haven't been online too much is because it's the first semester at College. Everything's cool now though.

jubeh
12-01-2010, 07:39 PM
Max has my support.

Ozzaharwood
12-01-2010, 07:40 PM
Thanks Rio, and no problem. C:

I feel like people don't trust me though... It almost makes me doubt myself a little.

Hayashida
12-01-2010, 07:40 PM
I think Max would be a good mod tbh

nextweek
12-01-2010, 07:41 PM
I'll do it if yeah want!

I mean, I check the forum often but I never post...

Yeah...I'm watching >w>


Me and Oz talk all the time...he'll make a awesome mod guys...

Max
12-01-2010, 07:42 PM
Thanks you guys.

Bacon_Barbarian
12-01-2010, 07:49 PM
D'aww I wanted to be a Mod...

jubeh
12-01-2010, 07:55 PM
Quit joking around bacon.

Bacon_Barbarian
12-01-2010, 08:06 PM
I'm not.

Rio
12-01-2010, 08:08 PM
Ok, I'll consider Max but I need to know from Hammie first if she's interested.

jaidurn
12-01-2010, 08:12 PM
Hey. I'm up for a shot at being a mod.

Rio
12-01-2010, 08:14 PM
That's true.... but you said yourself that you only hang out in certain areas. Do you think you'll be fine stepping into other places in the forum you don't normally hang out.... like the dreaded Welcome Wagon? ;p

jaidurn
12-01-2010, 08:16 PM
I'm perfectly fine in the welome wagon. It's just that I'm usually chillin in the artist ally and Chatterbox. I'm down with checking in on new threads.

Ozzaharwood
12-01-2010, 08:17 PM
Jai, Nextweek and Max (I'd also say C-Fox if she comes back) are all good imo

Rio
12-01-2010, 08:18 PM
Ooo. Nice answer!

jubeh
12-01-2010, 08:20 PM
Are you guys actually nominating people you think would be good moderators or just people you like.

/loaded question

jaidurn
12-01-2010, 08:23 PM
Thanks Rio. And, Jubeh, I'd nominate you, if you weren't a mod, even though you aren't my closest friend, or even real pal. I nominate people based on what they do in the community and how people like them and how mature they are.

jubeh
12-01-2010, 08:25 PM
If how much people liked them mattered wouldn't we have a vote.

Ozzaharwood
12-01-2010, 08:26 PM
All of them never have done anything bad, and are all fairly mature and responsible about things. Those are the best traits to have as a mod, no?

Oh, and they are fairly active. (I'm not to sure about Nextweek, but he says he is on a lot he just doesn't post. He is on the GB often, so I'd imagine he could make it to the forums too)

Bacon_Barbarian
12-01-2010, 08:27 PM

Hey

jaidurn
12-01-2010, 08:30 PM
Jubeh, sometimes people rig votes. I have seen it before. Also, it is Rio who oversees the site and wants people to stick around so she should know what's best for the site.

nextweek
12-01-2010, 08:30 PM
It's ok if I'm not a mod...I'll still be the same ol' nextweek!

Just thought it'd be an interesting experience... you know I kinda always looked up to Mods since I was here back in 06' so I thought I'd take a stab at it and help all I could..

Peace everyone! :D

jubeh
12-01-2010, 08:33 PM
Jubeh, sometimes people rig votes. I have seen it before. Also, it is Rio who oversees the site and wants people to stick around so she should know what's best for the site.


Not to insult rio or you guys but she doesn't really know any of you.

Also if people are willing to rig a vote for somebody then they like them right?

Alexander_Hamilton
12-01-2010, 08:34 PM
I'm not sure about wanting to be a mod here yet. Give me a bit to think about it.

jubeh
12-01-2010, 08:35 PM
That is hammie btw. ^

Rio
12-01-2010, 08:38 PM
Yeah, I was like "Who the heck are you?!" for a moment there. xD
Good to see ya, Hammie. Take your time to decide. It's not like there are a bajillion members here atm.

Bacon_Barbarian
12-01-2010, 08:38 PM

In all seriousness, I could rig the vote in my favour.

And we all know how much people LOVE me

Didn't realize 'Full Name' on the profile referred to username. >_>;

jaidurn
12-01-2010, 08:39 PM
Jubeh, I'm meaning Canidates could rig a vote. But if wanted, we could do it that way. It would mostly be Max sided though, because he has been a member longer.

Max
12-01-2010, 09:51 PM
I'm that liked? D'awwww

Hayashida
12-01-2010, 10:32 PM
Jubeh don't you know that votes are rigged sheesh

Max
12-01-2010, 10:38 PM
How do you think Henry became a mod so many years ago? Of course that was rigged.

Hayashida
12-01-2010, 10:42 PM
hahaha henry

Max
12-01-2010, 10:45 PM
Good times, good times.

Celestial-Fox
12-01-2010, 10:47 PM
No, seriously, now--HOW did HENRY become a mod?

Who was on his side? D:

Hayashida
12-01-2010, 10:48 PM
We don't mention the H-word, guys.

Ozzaharwood
12-01-2010, 10:50 PM
I want to go search out the old old site now just to find out who he is lol

Max
12-01-2010, 10:50 PM
It was a dark time in MT history...I still get nightmares from it.

Ozzaharwood
12-01-2010, 10:51 PM
Anyone care to share this dark tale? o v o

Max
12-01-2010, 10:51 PM
Nope

Hayashida
12-01-2010, 10:52 PM
that was back when Resalan was still around. And lol Dodgy.

Celestial-Fox
12-01-2010, 10:53 PM
Ahaha, Dodgy and Henry were ones for the books.

And Shnorkel.

Hayashida
12-01-2010, 10:55 PM
Shnorkel was just the worst.

Celestial-Fox
12-01-2010, 10:57 PM
So from these experiences, we can safely say that if Hammie doesn't take the other mod spot, no one could be worse than those guys.

Ozzaharwood
12-01-2010, 11:02 PM
I know what is going to be said next. :L

Celestial-Fox
12-01-2010, 11:06 PM
Bacon?

Max
12-01-2010, 11:07 PM
NO

Ozzaharwood
12-01-2010, 11:08 PM
You never know, he could be good. Maybe. But no, I could of sworn someone was going to say I will be worse than them... I guess you guys don't think I'm so bad after all? C:

Celestial-Fox
12-01-2010, 11:10 PM
Eh, well. You never saw Henry or Dodgy vs. Resa in action. Or SHNORKEL, OH. MY WORD.

jubeh
12-01-2010, 11:10 PM
Wasn't max the one who nominated henry.

Celestial-Fox
12-01-2010, 11:11 PM
Wait seriously.

Edit: And is there a way like on the old forum to tell immediately who's a mod like the username color?

Max
12-01-2010, 11:24 PM
Wait, what? I did some crazy shit back then that i'm not really proud of, so it's possible.

Ozzaharwood
12-01-2010, 11:27 PM
Everyone does stupid stuff once in a while, don't worry. C:

jubeh
12-02-2010, 12:43 AM
I am 99% sure that Henry was Max's fault.

Max
12-02-2010, 12:44 AM
I'm sorry Jubeh. We still BFFs? I love having you over for tea parties.

Psy
12-02-2010, 02:39 AM
Wait. Rio said she asked me before. I dont remember being asked before to be a mod. . . . am i like in the twilight zone or somthing? *everything sparkles* D8

Celestial-Fox
12-02-2010, 02:43 AM
I remember you being darn close to being a mod, then it falling through for some reason. D:

Psy
12-02-2010, 02:53 AM
everything is still sparkling. I honestly dont remember that. I remember a few months ago when everyone was saying we needed more mods (i think before we migrated to the forum before this)and i was suggested but Rio said that she wanted to keep the team as is.

jubeh
12-02-2010, 04:12 AM
Psy if you would nominate yourself to be a mod you would have my support.

I think we need to consider john in this equation. He is going to be the only veteran mod if hammie does not reclaim her position, which means he is going to be responsible for the other mods whether you realize it or not. If his team is made up of people who want to be a mod for the power or the status, it'll only make his job harder.

If he hadn't decided to stay as a mod I wouldn't have even posted here and I wouldn't be taking this so seriously.

Now I'm gonna say I support psy or max, because I believe they have what it takes. Max felt the brute force of my early modding days and matured into an alright dude. Psy has been around for ages and I don't think he gets recognized for anything other than his LGBT thread. He also is a hard working dude IRL so I know that he is responsible.

That's not to say the other guys could not grow into the role. Me becoming a mod was a horrible fluke and I was terrible at it for the longest time.

But you have to consider shnorkel, who was a blight on MT's history and the other countless, faceless mods that did absolutely nothing unless I asked them to. I don't have to name them because you know which ones I am talking about. These people weren't just appointed by rio, but were chosen by the members of MT. The ones that said hey that guy is good at drawing make him the art mod, or that guy is my friend make him a mod.

And I think if you really put a lot of thought and consideration into this you'll come up with a similar conclusions.

It's gotta be psy.

(or max)

((sorry max you are the back up))

And if for even a second you thought I was making too big a deal of this, then maybe consider why you want to be a mod in the first place. Because if its not to help out john and rio, then plz sit down.

Also could you guys lend me some money.

Max
12-02-2010, 07:25 AM
((sorry max you are the back up))

Its alright.

Rio
12-02-2010, 09:30 AM
Wait. Rio said she asked me before. I dont remember being asked before to be a mod. . . . am i like in the twilight zone or somthing? *everything sparkles* D8
I think I asked you at one time or other. It may have been back in the old site (now the archived forum) but who can say? That PM is lost in that forum so I can't check it out.

Anyways, I would prefer someone who has been a long-time Manga Tutorials member as they know this community more than anyone.

Well, talking about it is kind of moot at the moment since I still haven't heard from Hammie.

Hayashida
12-02-2010, 02:25 PM
If Psy actually wants to be a mod, I think that'd be great.

jaidurn
12-02-2010, 02:52 PM
Even if Hammie does claim modhood, I would still like it if Psy became a mod. He is a good guy and then we would have mods at most times.


The biggest problems I see happening are:
People dissapearing and infrequent mod activity on the site.

The way I see it is that then there would be a new generation of mods, (Oz and whomever (Psy is a good choice)) that can be taught by the older generation of mods. (Hayashida and Hammy (If she chooses to so stay)) This would create a more equal balance between all the mods and the community, but if Hammy so decides to not stay, then I think having another guy (Most likely Max) would balance it out at least a little seeing as then there would be an older member.

As such though, Hayashida's job would be harder raising three mods instead of just two. Oz is a newer guy, but he has been the Oekaki mod for a while now and has done his part to learn for the job. Psy is a mellow guy and learns easily and knows what he's doing in general. Max is a pretty ok guy most of the time. If Hayashida is willing to step up if Hammy steps down, then I think the mod staff would still turn out ok.

On another note, I think that mods should be over different sections. It would actually be a good idea again simply to help Hayashida have special forces. Hayashida would be the mod of all the boards with help from each mod on different boards. Doing it this way helps Hayashida not have to race from thing to thing and have little helpers that can ask him for help if they so need. It also allows for each mod to be put where they are most likely to frequent. Max would most likely be most frequenting the Chatterbox and Video Games areas of the forum. Psy would be all on the General Discussion, Critique Corner, and Role Play and Writers Arena. Oz would be the guy who would be over the Welcome Wagon, Drawing Animation & Tutorials, Anime and Manga, and Manga Works sub boards. Then Hayashida would just have to look over their work and check out the Seller's Hangout every once in a while.

These are just my opinions because I want a good community.

I WANT MORE PEOPLE, DAMMIT.

I did...lol

I used to be really really really active back in 06' with the huge RP section...just cause I really wanted to keep up with it...

Then the RP started to die down a bit, so I did as well..(that's why no one really really remembers me :P)

then I learned how to draw and now im back in full force!!

Psy, you are the next Mod. You deserve it.

Celestial-Fox
12-02-2010, 04:58 PM
If Psy actually wants to be a mod, I think that'd be great.

Max

If I had to pick someone to get picked other than me, i'd totally pick Psy.

Hayashida
12-02-2010, 10:05 PM
Oz, you had a question about modding; I'd be happy to answer, but I can't reply since your profile is private or something.

Ozzaharwood
12-02-2010, 10:06 PM
Huhwut. Okay, I'll attempt to figure this out. I think if I send you a friend request it'll let you pm me.

I thank you all for your vote's of confidence. I would gladly accept a Modship if chosen and or a position is or does become available. I would allso be more than happy to learn from Hayashida on how to be a good mod and take any advice and direction he has to give.

Rio

I was actually considering this as an option as it'll focus mods in the areas they like to hang out in but I decided against it.

The problem is that we had this system before and it was totally crazy when one mod for a certain area was present but the mod responsible for the section with the problem was not. The present mod couldn&#039;t do anything but wait till the mod who had jurisdiction over the problem area signed in. This was way back in the <a href="http://www.mangatutorials.net/bb">archived forum</a>, btw, so I don&#039;t know if you remember that incident.

Celestial-Fox
12-03-2010, 03:15 PM
To my dismay--I remember. XD

jaidurn
12-03-2010, 05:30 PM
Well, I was thinking that having Hayashida as the overall mod to rule over those smaller area mods would help that.

Can you ban people at least, Rio?

Rio
12-04-2010, 10:09 PM
Yes, I can ban.

Hayashida
12-04-2010, 10:13 PM
Okay well that&#039;s good then.

Rio
12-04-2010, 10:17 PM
It&#039;s good but it can be better. I guess I&#039;ve just gotten used to several people being able to ban. C:

Hayashida
12-04-2010, 10:18 PM
It would certainly make things much easier, but we did manage without it on the old old MT forum. However, if people decide they want to change to another type of forum, then maybe it will have the capability for mods to ban.

Rio
12-04-2010, 10:25 PM
Yes, it will have the capability for mods to ban.

Hayashida
12-04-2010, 11:02 PM
Well that&#039;s definitely a plus.
