    I thought it was awesome :awesome:


    It's true though. It feels like there's more mods than users in here nowadays, and the thread moves so quickly!
    It's hardly for us to comment on your recruitment policies, now is it :tongue:

    Nobody who takes an interest cares about winning, because we can't to be perfectly honest. Nothing wrong with that, but it feels like a thousand babies playing connect four against fifty mathematicians. Except now there's more mathematicians than babies :ahee:

    So, we've managed to convert this into a mod chat thread? Do we win?

    (smiles whilst trying to figure out how he knows I play Halo...)

    Sure, I'm up for that, Halo 4 right? The game is too good, I was literally about to come off TSR and play some with my house mate.

    Really guys? I don't mind the spontaneous mod counts, it adds to the fun - but the shifts and the name change, you're taking it a bit far don't you think...

      Was I imagining it or has it been changed twice today? I don't remember the 'awesome' being there to begin with...
      No, the "awesome" wasn't there to begin with. Someone keeps editing my posts, so I thought I'd make a change in title of my own.

      (Original post by Minerva)
      Quite.

      Feeling a bit sore, do you think?
      Not really. Hal.E.Lujah made the point earlier, but perhaps more diplomatically than I'd have liked.

      To be honest, this thread's just getting boring now. I never really counted in the past, but from the odd few times I dipped into the thread, I saw that there were only a few mods and it was possible for the users to win. Now, there are so many mods here that it's impossible for us to get two consecutive posts, let alone 100 - and you're just using it to chat. That's bad enough, but the persistent gloating means that I can't even be bothered to waste any more energy reading the thread.

      I did raise the issue of resurrecting Mod Count the other day, but nobody seemed receptive to it. I think you guys collectively have gone too far, and I've lost interest in this thread. I'll keep updating it with our wins if people quote me in (since only I/mods can edit the OP), but I'm sure the mod team can keep track of its own victories.

      I've closed the thread temporarily to give you guys pause for thought - only mods will be able to post in it, which removes the "fun" of the game for you too. In theory, you could reopen it, but that just goes to illustrate my point (and one made by ViceVersa in a previous thread):

      The title change to "The Thread Formerly Known as "Count" (Now "Mod Chat") MK XVII" was not made by a mod. :nah: There are no "shifts" either, we have better things to be doing.

      Guys, this is just a bit of fun, for both sides. It's not meant to be easy for you to get to 100 - the entire point of the thread is to stop you :p: You got to over 80 before the weekend, it's not as if you don't have a chance. Maybe the thread can get a bit busy with mods sometimes, but it's not always like that

      Tortious, it's technically your thread and as a sub you can decide whether it stays closed or not. But if it does remain closed then other people are welcome to create their own replacement if they wish.

        Yeah, sorry - I should've made it clear that I changed the thread to its current title, but that was only in response to someone else editing it to make mods "awesome".

        Fair enough. I'm going to leave this thread closed for the time being. The mods are free to do as they wish with it, and if users really want it reopened, they can PM me.

          The thing is...It isn't fun anymore. Mods have just overkilled this thread and a few of the past ones. Seriously. I'm not the only one to think this either. You mods have sucked any fun left out of this thread.

          I largely agree I think. It's gone too far and I don't see how anyone can seriously say it hasn't.

          It was good before and now it's ruined. Just when it was starting to recover and become better again, and now it's far too competitive, the atmosphere is tense and not as positive, and the recent going-ons (like the plans and the ridiculing and extreme gloating plus the name change to add in the "awesome", and the "shifts".. which does exist because it was mentioned by a mod a while back, although they might not have meant it so literally) has removed the friendly chat aspect of it and taken the piss on the game side.

          Edit: And please don't take my example of the title being changed to add "awesome" as me not thinking the mods aren't, because I do. I think everyone knows that I have respect for mods/think they're awesome (and when users were taking it too far with the mods I did speak up and said something, just to prove to you all that I'm trying to be fair here), so I'm not being bitter or anything, just using the title change to make my point of it going too far.

          It's changed before, maybe it can change again?
