I am still waiting for [ahem] consensus to emerge among the mods as to whether this forum should have a formally designated moderator equipped with Awesome Powerz. However, in the meantime, I think that Obesity has demonstrated a capacity simply to lead by moral example.


As a mod, I have no problem with Obesity being a forum moderator for the Annex.

Also, Obesity, I would make any mention of Southwest Airlines to be forbidden in this forum. dry.gif angry.gif

From the tone of the responses, I'm not sure if people are just playing along or seriously considering putting him in charge. Either way--don't do it.

While I'm waiting for Somey to make me the sole moderator and overlord of "The Wikipedia Annex," I am taking the opportunity to edify my eager subjects with a few important posting guidelines.

FOUNDING PRINCIPLE: If you post in "The Annex," you are by definition a fucking moron who loves Wikipedia. Embrace and own up to this deviant predilection (I do!), but do not expect to be taken seriously, especially on the Wikipedia Review.
  1. If a thread bores me, I will close it. Let's keep things moving and keep things lively.
  2. Anything you post here can and will be edited "mercilessly" by ME. I assume you've heard of a certain online encyclopedia that "anyone can edit." This forum is kind of like that... it's the message board that OBESITY CAN EDIT. I will employ this awesome power to frame my enemies, manufacturing online confessions for such crimes as shoplifting and methamphetamine distribution. CROSS ME AND YOU WILL GO TO JAIL. I also reserve the right to append the phrase "o ya, also i suck cocks, LOL" to any post for any reason.
  3. There are civility restrictions, just like there on Wikipedia. You have to me nice.... TO ME, but u can be mean to everyone else, LOL. Pay obeisance to Obesity. All users of this subform must also show proper respect to Daniel Brandt, to my brother who posts here occasionally (he has 2 accounts), to my friend Paul who posts here as Ceoil, to emesee, and to Pumpie, if he ever shows up on WR. Even the faintest hint of impertinence directed toward any of the above characters will result in... in... well let me think on that and get back to ya. But insult my toadies at your own peril. srsly
  4. If the unlikely event that you post something INTERESTING or worthy of discussion, I will contact a real WR staff member to move it to one of the forums that isn't a complete joke (i.e., not Jon Awbrey's forum). I don't expect this situation to arise particularly often.
  5. The following is an example of an appropriate post to the Wikipedia Annex: "duhhhh.... errr derr... I heard asluihdasluidhfhaiusdhfl63 is up for his 3rd RfA in as many months. wish him luck, it looks like an uphill battle!!!!! popcorn.gif LOL, it looks liek Elonka is already opposing, as if we didnt see that coming< LOL!!!!!! o btw, i also suck cocks LOLOLOL" Any post that strays from the above model in either tone or content will be subject to severe moderation. If you're unsure what to say or what to do, just copy and paste uninteresting crap from AN/I.
  6. I alone reserve the right, with Gomi's blessing, to create several "alternate accounts" from which I will post relentless abuse directed toward you and your styoopid wikifriends as well as lame jokes at your expense. These alternate accounts are sanctioned for use in THIS FORUM only and will be easily identifiable because most of them are named after medical conditions that I find amusing (e.g., if "Gigantomastia" makes fun of you, that's probably me).
  7. Anti-WP stalwarts like Jon Awbrey, Glassbeadgame and Kato are welcome to post here as often as they like, but they are not to be addressed, engaged, insulted, praised or acknowledged in any way. Ignore them, and they will go away. This forum is for people who LIKE Wikipedia as well as for masochists who had their feelings hurt on WP last week and wish to expose themselves to additional derision and abuse.
  8. Our general stance toward white supremacists, /b/tards, psychopaths and sexual perverts of all stripes is somewhat more lenient than in WR's main forums
  9. If I ban u from this forum (or temporarily "ground" you for acting liek a bozo), try not to post in this forum for the duration of your punishment. It's the the Honor System. I don't actually have the technical ability to revoke anyone's posting privileges.
There are a great many other rules that are not to be revealed to the world at this time, but are to be had in the Holy Temple of God.

Outrageous. I <333 SWA.

In other news, I'm glad that Obesity is keeping the spirit of Pumpie alive. That qualifies him over all other candidates, except me. And Pumpie, I guess.

Well that's reason enough to make Obesity a mod. Heck, I'd endorse making him a staff member now!

In the spirit of the "opposite day" nature of the Review, at Everyking's request, I have unilaterally made Obesity sole moderator of the Annex. Until I or any other mod or staff member decide otherwise.

Obesity, in those wise and immortal words of my father: "Don't fuck up."

Thus it is so.
