Maybe its time for a new moderation style? To be honest, the old way kind a sucks and I bet you that everyone involved in this thread probably doesn't care to see it close or be forced into a convoluted and archaic thread from 2 1/2 years ago with an entirely different title. Just sayin...
Honestly Squamish, maybe you could have stated it in a nicer way especially since Niko is MIA. Niko's moderation (as with any moderator) had both its positives and negatives. Some did not agree or like the way he ran things but I don't think anyone can deny that it kept the forum sane.
TTJ is right. The OP has only ever made two posts in this forum and he hadn't even bothered to reply to this thread. The OP might as well have thrown a bone out and watched us all fight over it.
