That's what I always assumed, but you'd have to ask mArc, he made the site...

Me again, another question. I've accidentally made a double post. Why after pressing the 'edit key', then selecting 'delete', does it say that I don't have permission to perform that action?

Because only administrators, moderators and uber moderators are allowed to delete posts.

What you can do and what most people here do if they accidentially double posts, they edit the whole text to a single line explaining that it was an accident.

When the moderators come around, will they usually delete it? I don't want to be taking up extra space.
(Also, I'd like to thank you, germanfryfan. I daresay you're the most helpful person on this board)

Thanks for the compliment.  smile

Well about the deleting, normally they don't delete it, it would be a little too much work to go through every thread and search for double posts. Posts normally get deleted if they contain stuff that is offending or that is absolutely contraproductive - Like that picture that was posted in the "Xanfor" thread.
Threads normally only get closed and not deleted. As far as I know the message board engine PEEL uses doesn't handle the deleting of whole threads too well and may crash.
After all, this UBB is quite old, which makes it efficient but tricky to administrate at the same time.

Ok, thanks. Also, I have one more (rather trivial) question. I'll ask you since you seem to be the person with all the knowledge around here. I posted it earlier, but no one except Nasty Pasty responded. Why do you become Space Pope after 6667 posts? Is that a jab at Space Catholicism?  wink

Possibly, though I'm more inclined to think it was chosen because it's 2/3 of 10000 (after rounding up). Either way you'll have to ask mArc for the precise answer.

Then again VF (primus inter pares moderatis) is catholic, so I don't think there's anything to it ... at least not malicious.

I read your question earlier as well, but sadly I don't have an explanation either. However, I don't think it is a jab at Catholicism, it's just that 6667 is 2/3 of 10000. Like Nasty Pasty said, only mArc will know more.

As far as I know he didn't even announce that there were any ranks. I mean that he never actually told people when they will reach another rank and what it would be. People just found that out for themselves. This also means that there can be other ranks after DOOP Secretary we don't know of so far.

edit: I am tooooo slow, Helpy McHelpHelp was faster.

I have this feeling I should know this... 'Moderatis'? wink

P.S. Also, I thought I heard about a 'DOOP Ambassador' somewhere too.

"Primus inter pares" means "first among equals". The phrase used by Roman emperors in the first few decades after the transformation of the Roman Republic into the Roman Empire to avoid being cast as dictators. The term primeminister is derived from it.

I added the moderatis to indicate the group.   I doubt moderatis is anything even resembling correct Latin.    wink

I didn't have latin, but 'The main internal moderation' sounds like a good explanation for the status of an Uber-mod, which she is.

See... I suck at latin  tongue

666 is not the number that you think it is. The designation that you would usually give to that number belongs instead to 10,314,424,798,490,535,546,171,949,056. Yes, there's a reason. Yes, I'm not telling you what it is. Being a board full of nerds, most of who will have read a lot of science fiction, I'm sure that at least one person knows what I'm talking about.

6667 is a jab at religion, we all laughed about it for like 3 hours in a chatroom (that is all, but abandoned) something like 4 years ago.  There are no more ranks after DOOP Secretary, if you could look at the board's code, you'd know that.

port 6667 is also something to do with irc servers etc if i recall correctly. Perhaps mArc was subliminally trying to make more people go to #fc. Perhaps not though...

Nah, it'd definitely be Nurdbot.

Well, if he makes it to another rank (should [-mArc-] add one), he will be repected and and honored above all mortals.

Nurdy and respected because of posting? Probably not. Beside that I haven't seen him in quite a while, is he still on his PEEL-break, or even banned?

If not him then Tweek will be the one to discover the new rank, he is the closest follower to Nurdbot.

Nurdy banned? Nah, he's just gone.
But in the end it's the same anyway.

Nah, that PEELer (especially if it's Nurdbot) might be called a Spamwhore, but that's it.  tongue

Why are you asking so many questions about this place? Seriously, who the fuck cares? It's a message board, read it and absorb it if you want to know. The questions that you're asking at this point have all been asked a million times before and the answer is always somewhere else. Go combing and lurking, don't bother trying to draw attention to yourself, it's not going to get us to like you or anything.

For the record, I dont think Nurdbot was banned. He posted last week in the nationstates thread.

I know he posted on Pimpbunnies that he was sick of PEEL and all that jazz, and just stopped posting regularily, not banned...

He was sick of nobody paying attention to him. So he left "for good", and we seem to have gotten at least this far without him.

Nasty - Nurdbot was banned.  There were people spamming here, and the IP address was from somewhere near Nurdy, so he was banned.  He emailed Marc and Slimmy and got unbanned.

There aren't other people near Nurdbot. Cornwall doesn't have people.
