That's why I said 'one of' ;)

Edit: Besides, it's not that big a deal in a Chat box

I think Snail should moderate General FreeSpace Discussion and not FreeSpace Modding.

It just surprises me that so many people are up in arms about Snail having 'teh powah'.

To be honest with you all, if I got it into my head to lock every thread in a Forum, do you think Admin would respond with 'Oh well, bad luck.'?

Moderators do have their own rules to abide by, it doesn't give us Carte Blanche to do as we see fit, we are mostly just there to be a first line of defence against really obvious problems, like arguments or 'Buy Viagra Here!' type posts. We can lock, move, split, edit or delete posts, and any one of those done without cause will cause a response, so we are naturally wary of doing so unless we consider it really necessary.

Believe me, if I locked everything I deemed as pointless, then I wouldn't be a moderator for long. Give Snail time and see what sort of a Moderator he is before passing judgement ;)

I don't think that it's a bad idea, just a bit... Odd.

Odd in a good or bad way? Or both (being odd)?

I can assure you I was more surprised than you are/were.

 
Why, thank you. It just feels natural for me, what with being the tech support dude for the family and acquaintances. Especially since as a non-creative person I don't really shine at modelling, FREDding or that sort of stuff.
Same here. Except I don't know anything about the SCP other then how to set it up. (hell, I honestly don't even know what HEAD or a trunk build is)
Fun while it lasted.

Then bitter.

Not really. I've been around longer than Lobo. I'm just curious.
I have been here longer then you and sizz.

As a lurker, maybe. I registered in mid 2005 with almost no lurking, and according to your profile you registered in early 2007.   ;)

HEAD = bleeding edge. Untested features with plenty of bugs.
Trunk = Not as bleeding edge, features that have been accepted into the codebase for FSO.

BZZZT!  Wrong.

 
Then what's the right answer?

HEAD is like the bleeding edge build, but features that haven't been accepted into the codebase. It's for devs only, and basically for bugtesting purposes and for other devs to share ideas etc.

Am I right this time?

Trunk is the stable branch, and is what all SCP releases are built from.

There are many unstable branches.  When a feature within an unstable branch is accepted, it gets merged into Trunk.

HEAD is the most recent version of any branch, whether stable or unstable.

Lol, I'll admit it, I too was surprised at Snail making moderator.

But FreeSpace Modding... okay that one to me... somewhat expected (actually it just makes me recall that screenie of a particular Fenris whacking a particular jugg so badly that the FPS dropped to nearly zero :nervous:).
