It appears that I will no longer be helping out at the hl2 forums any more. A few days ago, I went online to find that my moderator powers were no longer enabled. Having since contacted azzkiker, I have now been made aware that my admin powers were taken away by him, and although he failed to give a reason (as yet), I respect his descision to do as he sees fit.

I would like to thank members of the community who have made the past year of my moderating career an enjoyable experiance, and would also like to say that although I was a moderator, the community was generally so well behaved I never had to use the powers!

Thanks guys. :bows:

Firstly, i didn't remove your powers personally.

Secondly, i just sent you a reason. You aren't HL2Files staff so i don't see why you should be a mod on it's forums.

Of course you're more than welcome to use these forums and post as u wish. ou may even find a mod job on another sub-forum! :)

I was appointed by a member of the hl2 staff, Vanthem before his departure. To be hounest Azz, I'm failing to see why moderator powers would be taken away from someone only because they are not a member of the site staff. The whole point of my position as a moderator was to take pressure away from those who were having to staff the site.

I also fail to see how having given my services to this forum for the past year, I should have my powers taken away without even being told before hand, or even afterwards. I've dedicated many hours worth of time into keeping this place in check - I could have at least been informed.

Wether you removed my powers personally or not is completely irrelivant, you were the one who ordered it to be done.

But this is all trivial!

I shall step down from the roll of moderator - but I would like to say that I think this has been carried out extremely unproffesionally, and also rather pointlessly, as you shouldn't be rufusing help from community members anyway.

As I said above though, it is you who has the power, and you who can use it as you see fit.

That is pretty damn lame on your part azz. Gaming forums is full of volunteer moderators who have been appointed for the sole purpose of MODERATING THE FORUMS! Its even listed in the jobs section of the site: http://halflife2.filefront.com/info/Jobs :rolleyes: (scroll down to the job that says Forum Moderator)

Brookster did a good job here. He was fair, funny, and didnt run around with an overblown ego spouting massive amounts of incoherent babble and patting himself on the back like you do!

azzkikerMy forum, my thread, my sticky. Bite me.

It is NOT your forum or your site! Your just the guy that got handed the position because the better man left. As soon as someone better comes along (or back) you'll hopefully be shown the door you pompous little ass!

I dont post much but I used to enjoy reading this forum until you started posting here again pompous little ass.

P.S. Dont sweat it Brookster. Theres not much you could have done to counter react the bad taste the little ego freak has brought back to this forum. Its probably better this way. Eventually he'll be the only one here.

My decision's final. I apologize for not notifying Brookster. So, yes, my bad on that.

Apart from that, i have nothing against Brookster at all. Should he want to help as site staff in any way, he's perfectly free to do so and will re-gain his mod powers.

I don't see why a non-HL2Files staff member should have mod powers. Sorry.

Yes, i totally agree.

Your just the guy that got handed the position because the better man left. As soon as someone better comes along (or back) you'll hopefully be shown the door you pompous little ass!

You might like to know that I started HL2Files right from Day 1. I wasn't "handed" the position at all. Vanthem was then hired as co-admin by a recommendation from another staff member. I didn't like the way he ran things and he didn't like the way i did, so we had an arguement and i left for while during school exams. After that, he left and i re-took the position.

If you don't hold your language, i will show YOU the door mate. I haven't used profanity against you, don't vice versa.

Nah, I don't want to be involved in site staffing. If I am no longer a mod though, can I have the orange name tag removed. I'm just a member now!
