For those of you who voted "donuts", the comments on the PotD have been disabled. That's all well and good (provided they're re-enabled once we've talked it over and learned our lesson) but something stood out in the remarks of that discussion.
Joelteon7..... there's the whole aspect of the staff being insulted for the PoTD's we put up, which just isn't tolerated.
You know how when you go into a hospital or somewhere else, it will say "staff deserve to work without being verbally or physically insulted", well it's the same here in the sense that, we want to work without picking up multiple daily insults about the running of this site.
As a non-staff (and hopefully not-ever-staff, 'cause it's a lot of work and you're paid as much as the average redshirt-- nothing!) --like I was saying, as a non-staff member of A2Files, I find the idea of people openly insulting the staff to be reprehensible. It diminishes us all when our members treat the staff that way. Joelt, Freyr, SSA and everyone else on staff here behind the scenes do what they do out of the same love of gaming that brings us here. What's more, our three admins also do the dirty work on multiple sites! And I don't want them thinking of A2Files as the "problem child" of the bunch. Thus, I challenge the A2Files community to use this thread to show the admins how much we appreciate the work they do. Not only do they make truly wonderful mods (Ash's Apocalypse-era models are still some of my favourites, and I'm anxious for Zero Hour and Midnight to reach release point), but they're also decent all-around guys who deserve better than we've shown 'em of late. This isn't just about PotDs. It's to show them that we know how much they love Armada, and A2Files, that they continue to do the work they do, every day, and that we are ever so glad that they do. It's time to show 'em we're better than voting "donuts". Each one of our modders can make Armada whatever they want. Our admin staff makes A2Files what it is, as great as it is. And we're not going to forget that. So say we all.
For that you get Green. A truly heart-touching speech. I'm almost in tears. :cry: Now, how about that Love? :love:
I wish I were able to express my respect that openly and eloquently. Yes I, too, appreciate the staff (I couldn't do their job as well, if at all, as they). Since the things ppl do, unthinkingly, can really hurt feelings, let's try to remember each day the Moderators efforts to keep things up and running smoothly.
I say [COLOR="Orange"]"HIP-HIP HOORAY"[/COLOR] 3 times for the STAFF of this site! I 'CLINK' my GLASS of Romulan Ale to you all!:beer:
And mine of Blood Wine ;)
All hail the Staff and may they die a glorious death in battle Qap'La
I seemed to of miss this thread. The staff deserve a pat on the pack they do an outstanding job. It isn't easy running a site, I run a small one and its a lot of work but these guys run the most active site in the Armada community.
Three chears to Joel, Ash and Freyr.

It's nice to see the community appreciating the work of staff members on the network. More often than not they don't get the credit they deserve.
:) Yes, it is very nice to see that people do appreciate the work we do.
Identified as staff, resistance quotion extremely high, pursue and assimilate, we shall add their biological and technological superiority to our own, damage levels high, power down and regenerate. Regeneration insufficient, retreating back to delta quad..........
