    Are these - people responsible for Hay - as in stable hands? Or maybe livestock controllers - that sounds more appropriate! ;)

    I got a free ticket since I arranged both contests. But that was considered cheating, so I got kicked out. :(
  6. I won the "Why you DON'T want DHC to be a mod" essay contest.

    But, alas, there wern't many other entries. I think DHC rigged the entire thing.:rolleyes:

    Rock on
  7. Well, with a location that screws up the screen, and a sig. second only to Bass Master X's, I really hope your not planning onbeing one. :rolleyes:

    I'm always in the mood for a laugh but didn't see the humor in that sig.

    How did I become a mod? I lost a bet. Fortunately, I tricked Embellisher into sharing the duties with me.

    ...by having a signature of reasonable length.

    Why don't you mods ask Paul to add a sig length cap in the rules? -or in the actual script?

  15. The length of the sig. doesn't bother me as much as the location that screws up the margin.

    I made fun of a few bass guitars, participated in a few theory threads, annoyed the crap out of Hategear & Co. by lampooning FiElDy and tAbZ, and smacked a few trolls when I could get there before JT or DEAD PUKESPRAY had already squashed them. Then, out of nowhere, I got an email from Paul asking if I wanted to be the official Dark Overlord of Castle DB.

    I asked him if being a mod would mean that I'd have to try to be less obnoxious, and he said that he didn't see any reason that I'd have to change anything - I could just be the same obnoxious jerk, but with moderatorial superpowers. How could I say no? :D

    What do you mean with that?

    Ah, it was his sterling effort in the essay that convinced Paul to let you become a mod.

    As for me, I was a poor peasant boy until I managed to pull a P-Bass out of the Ampeg-shaped stone it had been lodged in unmoveably for centuries...

    How to become a "HAY MOD"? Draw straws. :rolleyes:

    It's pretty hard, though. Chances of being chosen are about as good as finding a nee...nevermind.
