I've been asked how I became an Admin recently.

This was the result of The Admin Wars.

'What was The Admin Wars?'

Now, instead of boring him with my version, I'm going to let the people directly involved tell the story. (I was a member then).

And rid their minds of curiousity and incessant questions.

People?

Solomon: "I need help!"

Bassetman: "Check out my hair!"

Solomon: "Admin!"

Bassetman: "I have the POWER!!!"

I'm just waiting for Surfer and Nesh.

They were the basic main players.

Wait for them, Ethan and Marvel.

I think I came in and took over because the site was an incessant pool of unintelligent drabble and incredibly unorganized. Originally, all I did was delete unused topic headings and threw them all into more general topics. People started freaking because Chit-Chit was thrown into the Rant thread thing. Then people were like "ZOMG! SS092 IS EVIL!" then I banned videogameman (Feel my power). Then I took over and started banning Admins because it was fun. Then Nesh was like "ZOMG! BASSETMAN, HELP ME!" and Bassetman, being the unfaithful friend he used to be (we are no longer friends, however close you can be over the internet), helped him. Then I got banned. Then I kept getting Phalanx to unban me. And it continued on and on until Guardian Of Nesh left. And I won. And then I realized, (I knew before too) that it was all fun after the first time I was banned. So I gave up and let Guardian back.

THAT was the admin war!? I thought it was before that. It didn't seem so bad. Maybe i was too addicted to CBUB{not anymore though, this is my passion} to notice.

Good times, good times. Solomon gave me my admin powers back then. I was sort of indifferent during the wars though. It was fun though.

Oh, and Surfer? Condensing all of the sections did suck. I hated it. Chit-chat is my friend laugh.gif


Posted by: M Bison Apr 20 2009, 04:50 PM
So yeah, the old guard of admins (there were others, but only these are important to the story):

Phalanx
Super Wolverine Man (that's Solomon now)
Guardian of the Nesh (the Last Technowhatever)
Hamboy (that's me, idiots)
SilverSurfer092
Wingman

So yeah, Wingman leaves, as does Surfer, and the place goes to S***, annoying kids take over. I decide to leave too.

And surfer comes back, and gets back his admin power from Phalanx. He begins to make big changes, guardian opposes this. I return as M Bison, and tell only Bassetman, Surfer and Solomon that I'm Hamboy. I begin being the biggest prick I can be for my pure amusement, yet remaining intelligent enough that all my d!ckery is valid and i only give it to people that deserve it. Surfer's messing around and stuff, as is GON. GON leaves, Surfer wins. War over. GON then comes back. New admins are voted in. I regain power, having by then admitting I was Hamboy.

Still doesn't sound so bad.

Posted by: The Last Technomancer Apr 20 2009, 05:30 PM
My condensed version:

1. Surfer takes over.

2. I try to fight Surfer and Phalanax who at this time was Surfer's puppet though bans and suspensions. The Admin War is mostly a stalemate.

3. Realizing I'm outnumbered and otgunned I leave. So in a way Surfer wins but my actions somehow prompt Phalanax to put stuff back the way they were; so in the end I got what I wanted anyway.

4. New admins are voted in and I gain a begruding respect for Surfer. Solomon mediates the peacetalks.

Posted by: Solomon Apr 20 2009, 08:21 PM

I'm not really sure how it all started or why. Anyways things were getting boring, and the place kind of sucked. Surfer moved some topics around, deleted a lot of the old categories we had, and basically took over. At the time I was unsure, my thoughts were: This alright for now, I mean whatever. Then Nesh being the loyalist that he is begans to contest Surfer. He formulates an army and attempts to take over. He grants adminship to all those who oppose surfer. However, Surfer launches a counter attack making a group of his old electric Ferret buddies admins while dismissing the others. Nesh is quick to react, and bans surfer as well as his band of admins. Surfer would not go quietly however after being unbanned by me at least twice, and bassetman a few times he was able to return and the battle resumed. Looking to weaken the enemy Nesh strips me of my admin powers, but with force (and really big type and scary words) I quickly regain my status. So the battle rages on for days on end. People banning people for no reason. Admins stripping other admins of their power. Friendships destroyed...alliances broken....

@Surfer: Took a side.

Stripping the site of the Chit-Chat section did it. I usually like to remain indifferent, to avoid annoyance and so I can poke fun at both sides.

But ah well. Letting you see my Jew-fro should've dissolved any ill-feelings toward me.

Cause' it's so cuddly.

I forgave you after the War, as soon as I found out you betrayed me.



You continued the fun.

Wasn't VG addict the one that started making people admins? I remember he made me an admin.

Posted by: Solomon Apr 21 2009, 02:17 AM
He was an admin. I don't think that he started it though.

Posted by: Bandit Apr 21 2009, 11:29 AM
Then something like this happened after everything was done.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yu_moia-oVI

Posted by: CoasterKing Apr 21 2009, 11:36 AM
So what happened?

Posted by: Solomon Apr 21 2009, 06:56 PM
So the battle raged on. Seeing Phalanx as Surfers puppet he suspened him, and once again banned surfer, and once again someone unbanned him. I think this time it was Phalanx. Seeing me as a traitor Nesh once again took away my admin powers. Around this time Nesh, and Surfer started to negotiate talks of some kind. Well, I was pretty angry so I demanded my admin powers back, and eventually got them. I went to make a topic thus ending war, but it turned out that the fighting had ceased, and the topic negotiated peace talks between all the parties. Shortly afterwards we elected New admins.


MISTAKE: In the last part where I said that Nesh took away my admin status away for the first time , Bassetman gave them back to me.

Posted by: Marvel Man Apr 21 2009, 08:36 PM
I wrote (or attempted to) the Admin Wars, based on everyone's opinions.

Under Fiction: Short Stories.

Note: So, any Admin can give Admin powers to another member?
