Seeking a student for the SoW
Hi forum! I'm looking for someone interested in taking over Russia in the School of War. It's 1902 and you're in a great spot. This is an anonymous game, so PM me if you're interested. I will take anyone, however preference is given to those who have completed games and have a low number of CDs.

http://washington.cbslocal.com/2014/06/10/minute-long-change-the-mascot-ad-to-air-nationally-during-game-3-of-nba-finals/ The commercial in there will be aired in seven major markets (including Washington) during Game 3 of the NBA Finals. We've had the discussion before...but since we can all use a break from the seemingly-weekly reminders of school shootings (one today in Oregon)--1. Think they SHOULD change the name and 2. WILL the name be change soon?

Team changeover
FYI to help things tick along better we're changing up the team structure a bit, details within

It has been great running the site for nearly 10 years, but the team and I agree it's time to get someone who's more active and in-touch on board. So I'm pleased to announce that Zultar will take the lead on running the site.

I'll be doing the things that need internal webDip know-how, but setting mod policy, working with the team, handling complaints, keeping the budget balanced, etc, will be handled by Zultar.

I've worked with Zultar as a mod for a long time and looking forward to working with him to keep the site going.

Any queries let Zultar / me know (you can reach him at zultar17@gmail.com )

Cheers,
Kestas

Congratulations, zul.

I'm very excited to have watched this site evolve over the years and I'm very happy to see the mod structure is able to change with it. Having worked with both zul and kestas for a long time, I'm sure they'll come together to do some great things for the site.

Chaqa (4231 D (B))

krellin "gets away" with his posts because this forum is in sore need of a non-liberal voice, and even though krellin can go off the handle and get too extreme, at his core he's a very well-informed and reasonable guy.

One of the first things I'm going to work on is a +2 button or an unlimited +1 button. I can't quite decide which is more appropriate or efficient yet.

On a more serious note, I am going to do my best to stay on top of things, and even though I haven't posted a lot in months, I'm on every day because I can't stay away. I am going to devote a substantial portion amount of time over the next couple of months to solidify the forum moderation, continuing the work that abge has done over the last several months and what Kestas has set up.

Please feel free to email me your ideas and suggestions. I will also try to maintain a regular presence on the forum so newbies and veterans alike know that they can easily get in touch with me.

"What happens when Zultar disappears for months at a time?"

I checked his log in times on SQL, even when he's "away" he lurks nearly every day.

zultar, a -1 button is much more a priority.

We don't need much more forum moderation. Things are fine.

Just to add onto this. I've been working with Kestas and now have SQL access. I've been putting together new queries manually to help the mod team, and will be working with Kestas to get them added into the code for all mods to use. Once I have a few changes under my belt I'll start working on updates that will affect everyone. What those are will depend on the feedback you all give Zultar over the next few weeks.

The folly is to link an *individual* whose views you have no knowledge of to a group that doesn't operate where he lives. The Ku Klux Klan exists in the US, not Aus.

total medical bill came up to 80k, and he's trying to raise that along with trying to pay off his already expensive college tuition. Anything helps, even if you just pass it along to other friends to spread the word, or keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
