So here's the part where The LBC (yes, the "the" is trdaemarked) comes with both good news and bad news. I'll leave it up to you to decide which is which.

After years of service as a moderator that exceeds my entire tenure on this site (and probably most of yours... sit DOWN, VD!), disaacs has decided to hang 'em up and go whoop Vike Daddy's butt at shuffleboard and Penochle at the Retirement Home for Mods (I prefer to call it "The Glue Factory"). This pains me slightly (and not in the good way), because in my entire tenure as a Global I very rarely, if ever, had to be summoned in here to quell a problem because disaacs was holding stuff down (and vikingsrule too...), and he will be missed. You all will also be receiving individual invoices at the end of the month to cover the cost of the Swiss watch we gave him. Wink Thank you for your many years of distinguished service, di.

This then leads me to the other news as the departure created a vacancy. And I had to go out and find some poor sap whose life needed wrecking by being put in charge of you lot. And lo and behold, there's this guy whose activity is always stellar, who has served as a fantastic representative of the Vikings fan-base all across Footballs Future, and who (unless my mind is going... which is entirely possible) has cut his teeth through past faithful service in the maelstrom that is FFMD. I like this guy, and so I kind of feel bad that he's going to end up hating me for sticking him with this (please don't make him hate me... behave, monkeys, BEHAVE!) and not giving him a tazer.

So I call upon you Valhalla to rise and give a loud YAWP to welcome your newest co-mod...

And rpm, you have a long upstanding tradition to uphold here - as in your stuck with this gig for the next 5-7 years whether you like it or not (that's how long the guys that came before you put in). And if vike daddy gets out of line, just slap him a little. I said "a little," he's old and brittle, much more than that and he'll have to go to the ER.

is the "the" trdaemarked, or trademarked? I've never heard that first word before, so you'll need to excuse me. Wink

Anywho, congrats rpmwr19! I wish you the best of luck. Hard to believe you've been here for 7 years now or something along those lines (I've been here 8 Razz). haha

I'll be rooting for you, to become the GOAT Mod. I believe in you!

Congrats rpmwr19! Applause

Your appointment was not a surprise to those who are regulars here in FF. And we ancients who are irregular... but frequent participants in FF Vikings... were not surprised, either. Laughing

Thanks everyone!

I was surprised at my appointment since I was running under the "pro public flogging" banner.

You truly are hearty, Norse, warriors.

Interesting move but a good one.

While he has phenomenal upside, he seems a little raw around the edges. With good coaching he could evolve from "serviceable starter" to "legendary" status in no time.

He reminds me of a young VD before age took it's OBVIOUS toll on him.

Congratulations rpm!

Sorry to see the end of the Uncouth Norsemen, that was my favorite avatar. No way to combine it with the mod badge, or did you decide to become more couth now that you're a force for law and order?

A little of both, Krauser.

I've had that avy for a while, and wanted to go with something different. I may end up bringing it back though!
