Welcome to Matt to the moderation team

Post by greeneyed » August 20, 2015, 7:49 pm

Join with me in congratulating Matt on joining The GH moderators team. Matt has done a huge amount of work for the site since he joined, not least writing a controversial column every week!

And thanks Matt for all your contributions!

Welcome to the salt mines, Comrade.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

Does anyone else notice the irony of a thread about the moderation team being in the "Greenhouse Issues" forum?

Hahahahaha good grief! Matt will probably start issuing out warnings for people not using enough statistics or posts under three paragraphs long!! On a positive note: Stuat will be just fine under these new guidelines.

Seriously though, I like Matt. He might be a complete mental case, but he's OUR complete mental case. Congrats buddy.

What's the bet Matt gets a more lucrative offer from The Chook Pen and bails the first chance he gets.

NRL should be doing more to help footy forums hold onto their juniors. Particularly when you see the development The Greenhouse has put into its administrators only for them to end out posting for the chookpen or the kennel
