So how did you all gain power on PEEL anyway? Did you know somebody, create the web-site, or were you picked to assist? Just wondering...

I'm not 100% sure, but I think [-mArc-] and Slimmy own the site, and the Mods and UberMods knew them when PEEL was first put online.

All I know is that slimmy started CGEF.  I don't know about PEEL.

Oh, I believe that PEEL started off inside CGEF, then grew too big and became its own site.

I believe that Slimmy was the original PEEL administrator, and he promoted mArc later.  VF, Nix, Kryten, Paul FSAC, Drippy and Jon were all mods when I joined.

After the PEEL crash of October 2002, Nix, Kryten and VF all got bumped up to Ubermod, while Tweek was promoted to Moderator, partly because of the crash and partly so there'd be someone online during times when the American mods aren't usually about.

I also recall VF stepping down as Moderator at some point last year, only for her mod powers to be restored a couple of months later.

Jon = bart182.

He's still around, but in more of an 11-year-old bothering capacity than moderating.

I got modded with Kryten, and I remember Nix and Tweek came later. Then everything gets fuzzy.

I stepped down at least once because I was too busy to even read PEEL much less close threads and delete posts. Which is similar to now, except no one really cares.

For crying out loud VF, we want to know how you all became mods, not listen to stories of drunken sex orgies!

After the crash there was talk about need for a moderator on this side of the Atlantic who was on line a reasonable amount, some people suggested me and mArc said if I wanted the job I could have it, I said yes  smile

As I recall Drippy was made a moderator shortly after I joined, and Nix shortly before.

Yes, and no. Slot-C was the creator of PEEL, way back when it was part of The Futurama Elite. Sometime around May 2000 PEEL became a co-ownership of CGEF and Futurama Elite, that's when Slimmy became administrator. The rest of your story check out. At least according to what I've gathered over the years.

So what happened to most of the Mods? I rarely see them post as much as the used to (looking back to like 2000) They would post all the time, now you rarely hear from some of them, like
[-mArc-] ?

Marc and Slimmy never posted very often to begin with.  It just seems like they posted more in the old days because back then there were fewer posters in general.  Rest assured though, even when you don't see them, Marc and Slimmy are working to keep PEEL running smoothly.

VF, Nix, and Tweek still post regularly.  So does Kryten, to a lesser extent.  He probably just has a life, or something.

Jon is only a moderator in the toy forum, so he doesn't really count anyway.

Paul prides himself on being the moderator with the lowest post count.

And as for Travis, I don't think he ever really existed.

Legend has it that before the apocalypse the nine Moderators of the Forum will once again ride forth to once and for all eliminate the last spam, but in doing so cause the end of the world...

Or something like that.

(are there nine, I just kinda guessed. I always think Teral is a mod, but he's not.)

And Slimmy is around quite a bit on the chatroom, he just doesn't really post a lot. And marc apparently makes things work, but you never seem to know what he does. I think it invloves summoning deamons and praying to dark gods.

Marc got a girlfriend, I graduated from college and got a full time job, Nix is on dial up, I killed Drippy_taco. Thank God for Tweek.

Is that a combination of Revelation, Lord of the Rings, and Wheel of Time?

Nix: Sure why not.

It's actualy a string of words I put together last night to try and form a coherent sentance. (Yeah, it is based on those things except the last one which I assume is about the world ending because of fighting the last evil, I just based that on random mythology.)

Why am I writing a post to explain my random postings.


I beleve Kryten was trapped under a mountain by the hosts of heaven in punishement for trying to break into the mystical R-rated forum.

Edit: why do these threads exist? I mean it's pretty much 100% pointless

I'm sorry if this is terribly offtopic, because it is, but I'd just like to thank all the mods for existing. I just had the most horrifying experience of my life. I had a very specific Simpsons question and I foolishly thought a Simpsons board would be more apt to answer it. I joined the message board at thesimpsons.com and found long threads with titles like "who in here is goth or punk?" and "who likes to party?". Nowhere could I find threads on the subject of awards givin to the show or anything worthwhile. I knew other boards were unkept but I had no idea how bad things could get. Thank you mods.

What are admins?

What are moderators?

The only difference between mods and ubermods are ubermods can ban members temporary (1 week).

Longevity. Once you've been here for some time you'll start remembering a few names, stay a little longer, more names, etc.

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!
