I had noticed that they had the admin title a few days ago but was wondering if I had missed an announcement. Clears that up. Congrats guys.

So, you're saying I can't Ignore them anymore.

Damn it.

Bah humbug to that!

Now I suppose they will disappear like you did. You used to post all the time, now you are so busy being an administrator you are almost nonexistent as a poster.

So how does taking away our best posters make us better?

I'm told it's been a little embarrassing how many keyboards Uncle Buck was wearing out. They had to come up with something to slow him down.

Can I still vote for Unclebuck as "poster of the year" without seeming grovelly and obsequious?

I'm not sure being named an Admin is call for congratulations. Seems pretty thankless to me.

I get all the thanks I need every two weeks when I get the big fat admin paycheck. Should be getting my first check here in a few days

Remember UB,RG.... even NBA officials get one wrong every now and then. Actually they miss calls every game. So you guys may look good in comparison.

Congrats new leaders. When is the coup planned again? I'm looking forward to finally getting rid of Hicks. :devil:

I don't know. Can they bust a move like this? :dancingba



edit: I guess I should add a thank you for taking on a thankless job.

New administrations are always good. A new perspective, unlimited optimisim, hope for the future. Until they become imobilized in the same quagmire as the administration before them and the one before that with bureaucratic red tape finally binding them.

I just found out the politics board is no more.

So . . . my thinking has changed 100%, since I know the new admins. are not needed to be policemen.

Good choices!

Still I can't congratulate Buck and Roam on getting a thankless job. Good for us, but not for them. A bereavement card would likely be more in order. So I'll just say, "Sorry guys."

On that note, UB needs to change his name to Tommy Carcetti.

Of course, you realize, this means you can no longer ignore either of them. :devil:

Congrats to both, but you left out some important information.

Which one is in charge of getting the pizza, and which one gets the office with the purty winders?

Enforce the rules, keep the peace, address concerns, tidy up the board (keeping threads on the right boards, making sure pasted articles have URLs/Author/Name of Web Site, etc.), discuss board issues among one another to make "big" decisions.
