@Kiel_Farren has accepted moderator responsibilities. Thanks, Kiel. ^_^
I was wondering why he was approving things in the Draw my Attention thread. Good job, Kiel, now you to deal with our shit spam and random discussions.
EDIT: Don't go crazy with power...
>///> ... This makes it seem all official...
There's no need to thank me, at least not before my first big troll spam clean up job, haha. I've come to you guys for help more times than I can remember. You and all the other mods / admins on here have all done so much for this place to keep it alive and fun. I just want to help.
Congrats! Now you too get to enjoy various people bitch, whine and make Youtube threats about “mod abuse” when you delete something!
You're right! Woo hoo! I am now considered "the man" trying to keep all those free spirits down. :D Bring it on.
Noice! Good luck, Kiel, for you'll need it when fighting off the hordes of trolls, freeform games and poor literary works!
Kiel, you'd better do your job well. And try not to abuse your power as a mod and try to do the right thing.
Kiel you did it.
Thanks, y'all. I'll do my best. :)
I'm not saying this is the hard & fast rule set to moderation, so don't try to rules-lawyer.
Kiel's been around for several years, during which he's contributed to the CYS community by:
- writing multiple featured stories
- reviewing many story games with actual paragraphs of intelligent commentary
- consistently being regarded as friendly/helpful to new members
Being a mod isn't all sandwiches & crushing people's self-expression: it's also spending your lunch break deleting 54 comments that all say "Evan Murphy balls," and checking the forums every few hours to make sure no ones posting cat porn or links to pirated Russian versions of The Avengers films.
Basically you have to be a super super super great contributor to this site that gives so much. Ei. Seth, Kiel, Berka.
Well said, Seth! And congrats on your recent "promotion" Kiel. I personally don't think you deserve to be babysitting this *ahem* rather eccentric community, but I definitely know you'll do a good job.
Thanks for all the work you've put in. And a cheer to load more to come!
Thanks, Killa. ^^
Oh my God! Congrats Kiel! Great job! I knew you would be the next :)
EYYYYYYYYYYYY ATTA BOI KIEL
I would like to pledge my allegiance and loyalty to Kiel. May his reign be long, glorious and bloody.
Better than Trump.
Congratulations Kiel :D Definitely think this will be a great thing for the site :D
Congrats Kiel!!! This feels weird now. I feel like I need to raise my hand or something before I speak to you...
I know what you mean 0_0
Lol... I'm still me. If anything, you guys can feel freer to tag / PM me about stuff because there's more I can do to help now.
I think I PMed you. Did it work?
It did, thank you.
Nothing like ass-kissing the new mod to my will, MUAHAHAHAHA And!
Tbh I have to confess it feels different to talking to you now. Not really weird, but it seems like you've gone to wise contributor to wise big brother.
Nonetheless, you seem like a great replacement for Seth mod!
P.S, I'm just kidding. Seth is a wonderful mod, and his moderator-ship (if that's a word haha) will always have a place in our hearts :D
xD If you want, but considering the shipping that's been going on... if someone walks in, well...
No one is safe...
I feel like I need to raise my hand or something before I speak to you...
Haha! Good one.
It's too much that you're avatar is already a buff white male.
Grats Kiel, we know you'll do a great job!
Never get down about people crying over deleted spam and troll threads and keep being your helpful self!
Oooh, look who's got their big boy pants on! Congratulations Keil! I always had a weird feeling that something like this would happen one day. Have fun ruling over the lands with an iron fist!
The only mod, i think, who hasn't penalized me for anything...
Good. When does he get his trophy?
Only alexp can create trophies, so . . .
So never, is what we're getting at here.
I talked to Alex about Berka's trophy back in December. He said he wanted to get to it this year.
You need to have at least 3 featured games. The other requirements are met. It probably won't be hard, considering your writing :)
Mods automatically get trophies, but yes, I plan on getting another game featured when I'm able.
Really? Someone should add that to the rules.....congrats.
Congrats, Kiel! You deserve it!
(Whether this post is encouraging or vindictive is left as an exercise for the reader.)
Congratz Kiel, reign over us long and hard :)
You love fucking up my relationships with people, don't you, Seth? -_-
Yes, james. It's all about you. ^_^
Okay, I'll bite: what other relationships of yours have I fucked up?
According to the 17th century fox-losopher Renard Descartes, humans are mechanistic beings without sentience, consciousness, or emotion. Thus, you were all placed here solely for my pleasure. On the offchance that you are actually a reasoning being, I will enumerate the many instances in which you have stolen love from me. After all, my class got canceled.
What about that one penguinite you fucked in Sent's story?
If my facts are straight, they had a shotgun divorce a few months after the shotgun wedding. I didn't know that the priest was officially, legally capable of marrying them.
It wasn't a shotgun, per se; it was the service flamethrower she got from the universe where the main source of meat is from ant farms and some idiot imported a bunch of genetically engineered siafu so they could have the competitive edge and the US military contracted Orkin to help deal with the infestation.
I really regret telling her she needed a part-time job.
What happened to your somehow-a-griffin son?
I haven't seen him in a while, but given that he's a year and a half old, he's probably fucked twice and died.
Edit: Umm, I mean, he's perfectly fine...hahaha...
He's about pony-sized now, and he's acting hyper-hormonal, so leashes definitely are in order... Your penchant for longevity seems to be pushing through, though, since I guess this is Griffin puberty. I'd give him at least 20 years. I'd put money on it, actually, if Anya wouldn't slap me for doing something like that.
I took half of her part-time custody and convinced my daughter to live with Angela and I because if Anya bangs animals, she probably needs more than a little post-college parenting. I don't know what happens the other 50% of the time, but I hope he doesn't accompany James on his far-reaching sexcapades.
I dunno what you're pissed about. It was one of my bastards that was supposed to marry Seth and be a mod, now none of them are.
This is my eldest son Bucky
My son Ogre
My son Steve
My son Will
These are my eldest grandsons Malk and Ford
Swift and Brad. Grandsons. Twins. He could of had either. He could have had both for all I care.
My grandson Tim
My grandson Coins
And this is my youngest. Mason.
Though while he hasn’t reached an age where that sort of thing is acceptable, clearly Seth doesn’t have the patience for all that.
This is fucking bullshit. I am so decapitating him and shoving a fox head on his body.
Not sure if I'm pleased to be on the same scaling as Brad. Can I be the adopted fucker?
Hey, just be glad I didn't pair you up with Ford.
Would have used Aman and Tan for the twins line since they're actually related but Tan's disappeared from the site.
I thought he still hung around BHB?
Haven't seen him in a while over there, not that I go to any of the threads that aren't the James roast CYS discussion.
Pretty sure he's referring to how Swift should feel in being Endmaster's grandson alongside Brad.
My Grandson Coins
Some weird shit must have went down between you and his mom...
He fucked her so hard, he skipped a generation.
Wait, wouldn't that mean that I would become Seth? I mean, unless, you use some other fox.
What? I read that as he's decapitating Mason and giving him a fox head.
Clearly Seth doesn't have the patience for all that.
Yeah. I don't have the patience to wait for Mason to reach an age where that's acceptable. So instead, End is foxheading Mason now.
I though he was foxheading you for not having patience.
Like hell we're having a Red Wedding on CYS. That whole thing was self-indulgent bs.
The Red Wedding is literally once of the best scenes in the show. Off the top of my head, the only scene/s that equal/are better than it are the fight between the Mountain and Oberyn and the Purple Wedding
What about when Jon Snow died?
Nah. Come S6, I could see Cleganebowl definitely being added to the list, and maybe the Tower of Joy scene.
Geez, first, you refuse to give us a "grey council". Now, you don't want to let us have a "red wedding". What is your problem with colorful events?
His heart was broken by a girl named Ruby Tuesday. He sought solace by travelling abroad, but then he lost his leg during the Green Revolution. He tried to drown his sorrows in a pub not long after, but he accidentally staggered into a guy and made him spill his drink on himself, and he was so pissed that he beat the shit out of Seth and gave him a golden shower. Luckily, a photo was taken of the event and it was reported to the police, but there was so much red-eye that they couldn't tell who anyone was, so there was no proof anf the charges were dropped. He was feeling pretty blue after that, so the doctor prescribed some rose-colored glasses, but that just pissed him off and he killed the doctor.
He's been on the run and in the red ever since, once in a blue moon, someone will try to convince him that it's not quite so black and white, but Seth's seen too much shit in his time to deal with his true colors anymore.
It's okay, James, we can still be lovers. You'll always be my favorite furry.
:P On the off-chance there's even a little seriousness to this, I repeat: I am still me.
Feels great having the one title I'm elligible for snatched up by someone who's just a normal animal and not even remotely opposable-thumby enough to be a real furry! I see how it is now, you bastard! *sniff*
... >_>' You'll always be my favorite penguinite.
Edit: Wait a damn minute, birds aren't even "furry" so you don't count. xD Favorite Avian, then.
It's a thing, Kiel. Birds with arms are furries too. I swear to Galu.
I hate to use this source, because it's kind of like going to a neon-colored Broadway musical and perusing the highest-voiced, hairless male actors dressed in multicolored silk frills in order to find a source that will tell you that the Brawny Paper Towels guy is totally in the closet, but hey.
This is hilariously silly.
The way everything is worded, it makes it sound like Seth is always stealing away James’ boyfriends and Kiel was the recent conquest. Meanwhile Seth is laughing and generally being a mean girl.
And Kiel’s just like a free minded hippy that’s like “No, it’s cool dude, we can all like share each others bodies. It’s all about the love man.”
EDIT: And I guess Sentinel is the quiet one who pines after Kiel and is constantly in the friendzone.
xD ... I'm just waiting for Ford to interrupt with the whole "mother and son" and "Kieller OTP!" thing now. Just occurred to me, this kind of made the shipping thread come back full circle. Since, you know, Seth and James were suggested "partners" for me, then, too.
Poor Sent. xD
Oh I'll totally share you with Quills. XD
Goddammit, if Mods weren't so preoccupied trying to get with douchebags that cheat on my daughter, maybe they'd have time for a... *cough*"Nice"*Ahorhock* "Guy" *Ahemhechhh* like me!
*adjusts fedora and posts "chivalrous" selfies on my wordless dating profile*
Well... Had you not changed in the past year and a half this would be 100% serious.
For the past year and a half and up till now I had no pretentions about being a nice guy. And for most of that year and a half my clonger wasn't even magnetized properly. I wouldn't be able to play neckbeard with a straight face whether I'd changed or not.
Congrats, buddy =3
Congratulations! This insanity always needs another Mod. (So you can contribute to it, rather than take care of it, of course!)
:) Hey, haven't seen you in a while. Thanks.
Between school, social life and sleep, I've actually been forced off the computer for more than hours at a time. Glad to see this site is still moving along. And now you don't have to correct anyone who thinks you're a Mod! Lovely times!
Lol, true, but now I have to correct people who think I'm not a mod because I told them so...
Nice! Congrats, Kiel... and good luck. ;)
Wait a second. Kiel's younger than me. Beta for Mod. Make CYS great again!
What are you talking about? No, I'm not.
I think he was making a joke about how Donald Trump supports his arguments with stuff he quite obviously pulled out of his ass.
I thought Sonic was the one leeching off of Trump's face in an attempt to harness his powers of BS--at least until he changed his profile pic back.
Nope, still looks like Trump to me.
Good one. XD
I've been on the site longer than you. Obviously I'd be a shit mod because I'd edit all of Chris' posts to fuck with him, but other than that I don't see why not.
Well, you "still cannot come up with a witty or creative profile." :p
Neither can you, I'm just more up front about it instead of making up random titles of stories.
Hey, there was nothing random about A Game of Life and Death! It was just... more of a description than a story title.
I see the other Jews have finally started teaching you how to be an asshole. I was beginning to wonder if that was an age thing or if you had to be married and own land first.
Sorry. I was referring specifically to our Jews, not the entire Jewish race.
First of all, learn some humor.
Second of all, my suggested animosity is mostly in reference to my earlier days on the site. I can actually reply to one of Aman's posts every few months now without the mods having to drag the thread out to the back pasture and put it out of its misery.
Third of all, I tried to find a picture of Eric Cartman's "are you fucking stupid" face, but I can't really find a good one. Can someone PM me a link? Thanks.
Well, you ruined my joke and I've misplaced my meds. I can usually go two or three days without 'em before I have a seizure or start throwing stuff at people, but missing a dose still makes me a little crabby. AND YOU RUINED MY FUCKING JOKE.
Damn it, I've eaten people for doing shit like that. Granted, they weren't people, so much as baby rabbits, and they didn't ruin my joke, so much as look particularly delicious. But, you get the damn point.
Haha. I totally forgot about the animosity between you and Aman. Actually a lot of the old peps you hated rarely shows up now a days. Lol guess the jab Aman made at you a long time ago with these two words. Poster boy.
That's not Eric Cartman, m8
I know. It's Jackie Chan. I thought the face was appropriate.
Would you kindly direct me to the reality in which Eric Cartman and Jackie Chan are the same person? 'Cause I either ought to shit-kick you for not listening or shit-kick you for exploring awesome alternate realities without taking me.
Please be gentle, master.
That's more of a 'why / how are you so stupid?' face.
"You sneaky Jew-rat!"
No, we play dreidel to see who gets to mess with you and your friends. Aman's a fucking cheater, no way he only gets Gimmels.
That makes...more sense than it should.
gud job m8
Well shit. Congrats.
My god, Zag.
What? Don't look at me! I like Kiel and all, but I wouldn't worship him as an idol.
Seth hasn't taught me how to do that yet. I can ask him to do it, though. @Sethaniel
Heh. And here I thought our IP's were displayed on our profile icons. *Laughs mischievously*
Unwisely attracts moderator attention.
*Mods edit Zag's post*
Thanks bud. *Wipes sweat from brow*
But, I'm pretty sure the Mods and Admins can edit any post, even if it's been replied to.
No one is safe.
I thought the mods acually edited it for a second.
They did. Twice. :)
EY THANKS KIEL!
I actually replied so that Zag couldn't edit it.
Oh, I put it back. I'm not fixing the other two, though.
Alright, I know that it's like "It can be AAAAAANYONE", but you don't trust that it's not me?
... Alright, now I'm uncomfortable.
They didn't even spell the Username correctly.
It's good to see you around, BK. I've been wondering how you were. Lol, yay, new holiday. Will there be cake? :D
I've edited a few already, moved around some threads, deleted some Ryder related BS and some uglier reviews. Nothing too exciting.
Well, if you really want to know... not a lot, but I love the "moderator" menu option under Help & Info. It's like seeing all the recent comments on your own storygames, only it shows me all recent comments, period. On any storygame or forum. And I've got some new buttons for every game, forum post, and review.
Can you see deleted posts?
That doesn't sound like an idle question. Why do you ask?
I've always wondered :P
No jk, I just was thinking about "mod powers". Aside from that, can you edit storygames? In this one storygame, there was a major error and Seth said he fixed it. That must mean you can edit them 0_0
You sound like someone familiar
Lol. But, I love this place! I even fantasize about some of you guys. Usually in the shower.
I need help.
I'll get the morphine Sentinel Penguins!
F*cked up? That mess was hilarious.
My life suddenly has meaning.
My god, that was awesome. I swear, Spartacus sometimes has a talent in making successful forum games, among them this Pokemon game, but also the Battle Royale games and the Enemy of Nations games, my god were they good.
Kiel ist der Ubermensch!
