    New Administrator

    Since your current administrator prefers to waste his time with doctors and hospitals the power that be (= the staff) have decided that a second admin is needed. After we spend weeks weighing the qualification and characters of all staff members, looking for the most suited, we disregarded those things completely and simply drew straws... and here is the guy who lost:

    Astralis

    So please welcome your newest Overlord and feel free to call him Pinky from now on (sure he might ban you, or play with your account in revenge..but that is a risk I am willing to take).

    How do you draw straws online?

    Hope the 2nd admin will manage to make Yello in pink and black stripes.

    Good luck astralis.

    I submit an opinion that Astralis is not Admin material as his significant other is pretty and not a blood sucking vampiress.

    Also, he is not sadistic enough and somtimes portrays an image of himself as having a real life.

    Finally, the term, "Chinese American Admin" does not have the flair of, let's say,"Kraut Admin" or "Kiwi Admin".

    I submit a motion that in order to prove his worth as Admin, Astralis mess around with Yellow's account for a bit, just to make sure he knows how to use all the pretty new functions. All in favor?

    Abusing Yellow is meant to be a labor of love, not something you sell to the highest bidder.

    ah, the true sign of the inmates taking over the asylum

    BR,

    but YF is already doing such a fine job complimenting his new Overlord...i may require appropriate, ahem, compensation to do such an act after he's been so nice and all...

    I'm proud to wear that sig line for the time being. I'll erase it when I get home from class later tonight
