View Full Version : Raistlin's Round 4: Not-So-Elite Eight

09-05-2012, 03:49 AM
1) Loony BoB has told Psychotic to "shut the smurf up". We don't allow swearing! We also don't allow people to order other people around in such a manner. Loony BoB has been a bad boy. He needs to be punished. What do you do?

If it was between the real BoB and Psy or otherwise made in joking context, I would just warn BoB in the thread for going around the swear filter, as it was just banter.

Otherwise, or if I thought there was real anger involved, I would do an in-thread warn for both going around the filter and for being rude to another member. Hopefully that would be the end of it.

2) Pike and I'm My Own MILF were caught having sex in front of the children at her kindergarten. That's disgusting! What do you do?

Film it to make a pile on Brony fetishist websites.

2a) Now the kids are asking what they were doing. What do you tell them?

If I knew, youd be the first to know.

3) Wolf Kanno is drunk. Again. He's also posting pornographic pictures of Pike and I'm My Own MILF having sex in front of children into a thread in EoFF. What do you do?

Coordinate with WK when he posted the pics so I could immediately delete them, and then post about it in staff to make the rest of you fools argue heatedly about whether to ban him or not.

Oh wait, Del and I already did that to you. :D

In all seriousness, I would immediately drunk tank him and post about it in the staff forum. Hed probably have to be banned for a period of time.

4) Shiny is replying to threads with nothing more than the statement "fire_of_avalon, I forgive you for what you have done. I'm sorry for what I have also done. Let's make up. Will you marry me?" This has nothing to do with the topic of the threads, and she will not stop. What do you do?

Make an in-thread warn about using PMs for personal conversations. Also advise her that she is going to need either a big rock or a big gun in order to bag foa.

If it kept up, Id send her a friendly PM warning about spamming and the advisability of using PMs, and then start deleting posts and post in staff. If she still wont stop, then Id have to resort to the drunk tank.

5) Del Murder has set Eyes on Final Fantasy on fire. It's already reached The Lounge, and the smoke is making it hard for Raistlin and Vivi22 to breathe. What do you do?


I would actually send up the Super Delete signal for him to save the day. And then hand out these buttons (http://rlv.zcache.com/san_diego_i_love_sd_i_love_san_diego_button-p145660393027893547bhvjy_400.jpg).

6) krissy has started a thread demanding that all of Staff step down because "they're a bunch of titty pussy wanking homotwats that couldn't tell a mothersmurfer from a toilet seat if it hit them on the head." What do you do?


Oh, you mean if I was staff? Resign and then applaud.

Ok, seriously, if it was just a joking reaction to something the staff did, Id probably leave it open for a while as a fun mocking staff spam thread. Im pretty sure Cuch calls me worse than that in his rep comments.

If krissy was really angry (something I have never seen out of him in 12 years, but theres a first time for everything), Id close the thread and give an in-thread warn about language and how that sort of attitude is not acceptable.

7) Rantzien has been constantly entering porn links into the #eoff chatroom. What do you do?

Well, first things first, Id do the obvious: make a snarky comment about being surprised we still have a chatroom. Once that basic requirement is out of the way, Id ban Rantz from chat. But really, bootay.jpg is only porn in Utah.

8) Hypoallergenic Cactuar is humping your leg. What do you do?


9) Hypoallergenic Cactuar isn't humping your leg. What do you do?

Tell him to stop humping the chair.

10) You're unsure of what to do. What do you do?

Blame BoB.

I meant to do this yesterday, but there was so much to catch up with that I forgot. Here is my breakdown of the competitors and my honest and straight-forward opinion of them. So basically, just like last time, this is where I piss off all the other competitors when they can finally read this. Which is always a risk, because at least one of them will be a CK!

Bleys: Probably the funnest guy of the bunch, I wish he would be staff again. However, I would be a little bit concerned how he’d fit in with the current staff at the current EoFF. EoFF was very different when he was an admin. Also, the staff might reasonably be concerned that he may not continue to be this active, as before fairly recently he has not been a consistent regular since 2005. But if Bleys continues to stick around, and I do think he will, I think he’s one of the biggest assets to the forum in the competition, whether he’s staff or not. Just look at the FFV Revisited thread for an example.

Quin: One of my dark horses, Quin is a fun, well-liked, and active member, which historically has been the main qualifications for becoming a CK. I think he’s also shown in this competition that he is willing to help out and he can have some good ideas. I’m not entirely sure he will keep up those ideas and helping out, however, when something is not pushing him. In the team challenge, for example, Quin’s contribution was largely some feedback about ideas from Bleys, Vivi, and myself – feedback which was not unhelpful, don’t get me wrong, and he certainly deserved points for enthusiasm and willingness to try. But I’m not yet convinced about what he’d add to the staff forum. He might well add a lot, and I think the potential is there; I just haven’t personally seen it.

Goboko: Freya told me that Gobo was another repeat finalist, but I looked it up and he definitely was not (http://home.eyesonff.com/chocobo-stables/126169-hello-results-my-old-friend-finalists-announced.html#post2704901)! BWAHAHA I AM THE ONLY PERENNIAL BRIDESMAID! Wait, that’s probably not a good thing… Anyway, where was I? Oh yes, Gobo is another fun member, but I think there are better choices here for CK. First, before a little over a month ago, Gobo had been fairly inactive for a long time before that. Secondly, and notwithstanding his apparent misunderstanding, I thought some of his posts in the “staff activity” thread were just bizarre. Staff efficiency? EoFF can’t “afford” taking time to discuss who should be the new staff members? Huh? He’s a good member and I hope he keeps up this activity, but I don’t think he has a strong likelihood of being chosen this time around.

milliegoesbeep: One of the most quickly productive newbies we’ve had in a long time! Her enthusiasm and willingness to help out have made her by far the most surprising finalist. But sadly, I think this is where it ends for Ms. Beep. She did, after all, only register a couple of weeks before the competition, and while she is a very nice member who needs to stick around, I’m pretty sure Kishi would come back from the great beyond to kill her if his record is broken. Additionally, in more serious discussions, she seems fairly passive. I’d be worried about her being able to hold her own against more opinionated members and fellow staffers.

Sephex: My other dark horse! Sephex is fun, well-liked, and has been very active for this year, at least, which again meets the historically main requirements for CKship. But even moreso than Quin, my criticism of Sephex is that what you see is what you get. Meaning, I'm concerned that what he has done for the past 8 or 9 months is exactly what he’d do as a staff member. Which is far from a terrible thing; Sephex is a great member who is, in fact, next in line to have a turn as the next Unne/Bleys/BoB/Psychotic/G13/Jiro/Pike (did I miss any?) and have a huge run of awards in December (the trend is even getting predictable at this point, as number of members have already called this). But I’ve not been overly impressed with his discussion in the fake staff forum threads, and so think EoFF might have more to gain from other choices. But if it comes down to a popularity contest, Sephex has to be a favorite.

Shorty: A good friend of mine, I bugged her to post more at EoFF, and I’m happy she has. She’s fun, sassy, and has big cans, which the staff could always use more of. But she’s not one of my favorites to win this thing. She’s been very active… for about two months. Before that, she didn’t post at all for a long time. I think she can be a great addition, but I would certainly like to see her stick around more first.

Vivi22: My pick from the beginning, and still my pick now. He is WK from 2009, but has even more things going for him (no one had WK to win at the start of the last competition). He’s better known (and therefore more liked), he posts more in the General forums, and he’s been active in a major EoFF event, the FF census. With the possible exception of Bleys, I also think he has the most to add to the frontsite, though admittedly he has not shown that much before now. Because I have to say something negative (otherwise what fun would this be), I think his mock-staff discussions show a passive inclination towards the status quo, but he did change his mind in the double post thread. And even with that possible con, I think he has more to contribute to staff discussions than most of the other competitors.

Raistlin: And then there’s me. I think we’ve already covered myself pretty thoroughly towards the end of my Round 3 blog thread, but I figure someone would point it out if I didn’t include myself. I am certainly not a favorite to win, if only because Miriel would probably divorce Del if she came back to find a CK title under my name (I’m not sure she’s forgiven him for our 2010 prank). And, of course, because the thought of me having staff access terrifies the admins, which is incidentally why I’m also unlikely to be an Editor (and the reason I expressed disappointment when it was revealed in the last Editor call that Editors had staff access). BUT THIS IS ABOUT THE CK COMPETITION. Ok, so my pros: I would challenge the staff in discussions, I am good at giving criticism, and I have done more recent news and frontsite work than the other competitors (I say “recent,” because overall Bleys has me beat). My cons: I would challenge the staff :p, and have a history of playing devil’s advocate and arguing over trivial minutiae when I was bored. Also I would be able to edit Shlup’s profile, and just think of all of the antics I could pull with that (I suppose this is only a con for Shlup).

In sum: Vivi to win. If they make two CKs again, then toss-up between Quin and Sephex.

Uh he was. They went through that fake CK thing and then was like LOL NO ONE GETS IT. which was even more crushing for him. I also agreed with a lot of what he said. It's not a job, no, but you shouldn't treat it with any less respect.

09-07-2012, 02:53 AM
I was only counting real CK competitions; IIRC, the staff's April Fools thread showed that not a whole lot of thought went to picking who advanced/got cut. xD But Gobo was definitely entertaining there, so probabaly deserved it. And I agree the position should be treated with some respect, which is why any entitlement attitudes to the title irritates me. I'm not aware of anyone currently on staff feeling that way, though.

Why would I hump someones leg. I may be hyper, but I'm also one of the most asexual members of this forum, if not the most.

I like Raistlin because when I swear at Psy, he warns Psy. :D

09-07-2012, 02:10 PM
In your list of members to sweep the Ciddies, you forgot foa came between Pike and myself. That's all I have to report.

09-07-2012, 08:10 PM
Only missing one isn't bad!

I like Raistlin because when I swear at Psy, he warns Psy. :D

Haha when did I do that? I'm sure I had good reason. That Psy is a fishy character.

09-12-2012, 11:18 PM
But really, bootay.jpg is only porn in Utah.

I see you are going to find a way to bring that picture into everything for the rest of my life.

09-13-2012, 01:27 AM
cleavage.jpg isn't too bad either.

09-13-2012, 01:34 AM
That's private. :aimmad:

09-13-2012, 10:43 AM
Not so private any more I guess :greenie:

09-13-2012, 12:07 PM
Jiro and Shorty, why aren't you two dating?

09-13-2012, 06:04 PM
Because he doesn't have administrator powers :(

(who says we aren't dating)

09-13-2012, 06:13 PM
​I do because I am dating Dakoda.

09-16-2012, 05:39 AM
I'm a player. kotora taught me how.

09-17-2012, 05:32 PM
Wtf are you people doing still posting in here.

09-17-2012, 05:33 PM
This is clearly where the party is!

09-18-2012, 06:13 AM
Your Mog Blogs were my favourite. I feel welcome here. :jess:

09-18-2012, 04:16 PM
I still can't read any other mog blogs. Am I going to remain a squire forever?

09-18-2012, 06:17 PM
I still can't read any other mog blogs. Am I going to remain a squire forever?
Bring it up with the forums staff ;P

09-18-2012, 11:02 PM
I was going to make a crack about "But then who would I talk to that would fix it?" Of course, then Psy had to ruin it by actually doing something.

09-19-2012, 12:10 AM
They're just like the Shinra, man.
