Let's all welcome a "new" staff member

Due to some recent personnel changes, we had an open spot. After discussing exactly how to fill it, it was unanimously decided that we should offer amonkie a chance to fill the roll and help us work through some of the changes coming down the pipe (more on those at a later date). There were several other names mentioned, but she was the obvious choice.

Please join me in welcoming her back to the staff!

Wow, interesting responses to someone who was just given the power to dole out infractions. Interesting, indeed.

Welcome back to the staff, amonkie. I look forward to your level-headed leniency.

If this was a board where the staff took themselves so seriously they felt the need to shake the mighty banstick at every barb, I'd have been gone ages ago.

But really, congrats, monkie.

"Missed her"? Was she gone?

Just what the fuck is going on here on TFP? I'm starting to think this is not the board I thought it was. Maybe the staff need their own board, so they don't have to rub elbows with the riff raff...

Fugly, if it will make you feel better, I'll ban you for old time's sake. I can even call you a "donkeypunch cock-knocker" in my banning message, just like one mod did back in the day.

And we already have our own board. We call it "How Are We All Going to Fuck With Fugly Today?"

You know what Plan, I... I... Oh fuck it, your right. It would just inflate my ego way past the holding capacity of my little hobbit body.

Hell, even when I ran a guild in WoW, I never wanted responsibility. You have to be all... responsible with it. No random kickings, no changing people's sigs, no muting people in vent cause you were drunk and bored.

I like it on the lower end and plan on acting irresponsible so that my name never comes up.

For the record, yes. We trimmed the number of mods awhile back. One recently stepped down, and so we asked amonkie back as the natural choice.
