First time I've ever heard that joke...

Hm.. still don't have the "Game-master" title though. Make it so, number two!

I guess I meant, "Make it so, number one". I'm not exactly big on my Star Trek references.

You're still making yourself Picard to Amarie's Riker. A simple "make it so" may be more politically deft. Though on a personal note I prefer "Fjordian in training".

Never mind the vote!! There, how's that, Forest? A rank is either given when inspiration strikes, or if someone asks nicely. This is a bit of both worlds, cause you went about it the wrong way, a little bit sideways, so to speak.

These things are not exactly spelled out! How is one to know the arcane means by which some usernames get different text underneath them than other usernames?

I am perhaps inordinately amused that my tenure here seems to have created a situation where the idea of an Admin with enough self-respect to expect people to ask nicely for favors is considered an arcane mystery. Laughing {{{That's me laughing at myself, to be clear.}}}

On that subject, happy two year adminversary, Amarië! cheers

What?! Why use an almost trademarked quote if you don't understand the context? Dangerous waters.

Dangerous indeed, but with him wanting to be Game Master I thought the gamble was kind of "in character". Wink

You do it the Forumshire way; you are either there when the idea is born, see it in action, or stumble upon it in an old thread purely by accident. Nod

It is mentioned on the first pages of this thread actually. I went back to remind myself what we had been talking about, and there is was. Laughing
