    While Tobias himself may or may not spend any more time on the forum, calling a vote of all the admins usually takes noticeably more time than pulling a majority out of the mods, because the admins as a whole aren't on nearly as much as we are. Even if he's there, DP or Alt or Elf could well not be. Also, like Tobias says, they're administrators. Commissioned officers to us poor corporals and sergeants, and that means they're not meant to be called in for every little decision about where to dig the latrines.

    So, as a matter of job roles and practicality, day-to-day decisions that you see carried out by the staff are often determined by an informal mod consensus, with maybe just one or two of the admins. That's like, thread locks, warnings, puppet identification and banning, and so on. Meanwhile, admins are responsible for deciding on the forum's direction as a whole, providing oversight of mod actions or promotions, changing things on the forum that mods can't access, significant bans (i.e. if you're not just a blatant puppet or bot), and things like that.

    Congrats Tobias, you've been a good mod, here's to you being a better admin.

    Now, with that out of the way, I nominate Mcjon01 as tribute!

    Secondary nominations go to Spinach for being best princess, and l3uster so we can fill the mod team's quota for ethnic diversity.

    Grats!

    I'd apply, but I know my weaknesses, and holy shit with me in the green, threads would be a terrible sight to behold when half the forum has sigs covering 60% of a 1080p screen.

    Be real with us Tobias, who did you kill to become an admin?

    also I want mod powers just so I can edit the OP of that one Red Dragon thread when Lianru is buried by her schoolwork 80% of the year.

    Use your admin magic to make me a single thread moderator please.

    Right, yeah, this was the question I actually meant to answer in the first place.

    Difficult isn't quite the right word, I think. The best way I can explain it (or the way that mostly clearly illustrates it to me, which might not be the best way at all) is by my avatars. I have this fun little rotation policy of changing avatars every 100 posts, right?* After my promotion, I blew through those milestones at a rate way beyond what I'd ever done before, like one per week. My PM box likewise is filling up much faster than it once did.

    There is some time consumption, and stress, and a bit of hard thinking or detective work at times. The day before yesterday, I ended up with a headache between my exams and dealing with our vexatious board members. But by far the most significant issue is the sheer amount of activity; that's what makes us want to share this out a little more.

    * (And retaining one for a full thousand every couple of thousand posts, which is what I'm on now, but that's not really relevant).

    That, or replace their sigs with 1080p-tall images that proclaim "I AM A TWAT".

    Nah, I'm still here. I'm not as punny as I use to be.

    More like Roadbuster decided it was time for him to go out into the Wilds and leave Mega City behind.

    No he got promoted.

    He's now one of the reviled Four Guardians of Beast's Lair.
