View Full Version : My title =P

*gasp* A topic by Kairi. You may actually be surprised this is like my first non-official topic, ever.

and yet it sort of is. Really, click my profile (http://pokecommunity.com/member.php?u=4) and choose to look at all the topics I've started.

SoI have this new usergroup or job that no ones ever had before, and Im supposed to name it. Its the super moderator job with some administrator powers to further their ability to work for PC. Any future people who qualify will fall under the same title. So, I came up with this praetor which means
praetor also pretor n.
An annually elected magistrate of the ancient Roman Republic, ranking below but having approximately the same functions as a consul.

Kind of close to what the real job is. Mixed feedback about it, so honestly guys tell me the truth. I know I suck with naming, my children will have to name thierselves.

So, if you do vote you dont like it, drop me a suggestion? This is a big event that willl etch itself into PC for a long time! Like most things like this, I really like to hear what everybody thinks about it.

Lol, I was wondering why your name was green. @_@; I like this... It's basically the position that someone can have between an Administrator and Super Moderator? Perfect job for you! =P The name's fine, too.

like what I said before... whatever you choose, I'll be supporting you. ^_^
(and that goes for a simple title as well, of course =p)

Though i think Alyssa is somewhat irritated by that title, as she's thinking about Star Trek with it ^_^; (refer to DCC)

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Star Trek XD. All I said is I heard it on a Star Trek Movie I didn't say it came from it. XD This is funny.
Any like I said, me I don't like Praetor, it don't go along with forums (unless it's a Star Trek forum XD j/k), I mean can you find a pokemon forum out there with one of there user groups as Praetor? (I know it mite be a first but it dont sound good)
I think sub-Admin or Super Super Moderator XD (the Super Super Moderator was a joke XD). Or do like me and Vito came up with, change your group name to Administrator and change the Admins right now to Root Administrator. Just a idea.

Aside from that, yeah but you guys aren't Gym Leaders and Elite Four members like Serebii. XD

Ahh Very Cool indeed ya, ya should keep it it's cool but it's up to you to decide tho :)
Oh My (Star Trek) are you kiding me XD

Cherrim
January 11th, 2004, 01:09 PM
I think TPM had their mods named "Gym Leaders" first. Then again, I don't know how old Serebii is or anything. *shrugs*

I like the name, but it's hard for me to remember, because I think I'm just like that. I wouldn't like "sub-admin", though. It makes it sound like a second-rate job or something. o_O

You just watch everything dont you Kairi? XD (yes Praetor Shinzon on Nemesis is what reminded me of that XD).
On a side note, I think that Gym Leader ranks would be good for PC if we had a RPG (I like Gym Leader ranks if PC had a big RPG like PikaSurf).

just keep the title like this... difficult to remember vocabularies along with a very technical and precise registers always give the bearer of the name an intelligent feeling XD

(another word: more complicated a title is for you, relatively you'll seem to be more intelligent... but then again as if you aren't intelligent already ^_^)

Nice Titel Kairi. :) Maybe Prefect or Major Domo wasnt a name you would like lol....

Shadow
January 11th, 2004, 07:09 PM
Hmm it's OK but no one will ever remember it or pronounce it right. Make it simpler, like Jr. Admin or Sr. Super Mod (I stink at names too XD)

And it may be just me, but I don't really care for that shade of green lol You don't have to change that though XD (you don't have to change the name either)

Kairi
January 11th, 2004, 07:11 PM
I had it envisioned though! Plus it was that or pink, and nothing says power and respect like pretty pink. =P

Hey I like PINK!!! WHY DIDNT YOU PICK PINK....lol

Miyu-chan
January 11th, 2004, 07:32 PM
lol, That shade of green is nice, but a little dark for my taste (but it's your taste that matters, not mine. =P)

Kairi
January 11th, 2004, 08:28 PM
Kwesi picked it, and I agreed. I knew I wanted something much different than the current staff colors.

Frostweaver
January 11th, 2004, 09:05 PM
true... pink is rather close to the smod color of orange...

whoever said internet is completely un-educational is wrong... just today I learned a new vocab via the internet ^_^;

Arcanine
January 11th, 2004, 09:12 PM
OK lets put it this way, what if a boy S-Mod got picked for a Praetor? Pink well lets just say is not a good color for a boy.
But the Green on the home page makes it look like a Mod (its dark).

Arcanine... *coughcolor-sexistcough*

Nothing wrong with pink... i just don't like shocking or sharp pink... then again I never liked any color that's sharp... it's as weird as "blue is a guy's color" and etc... the green stands out pretty well among the active member list thingie much like the smods... plus it being green you can tell at a glance that a praetor is on instead of a smod (pink and orange are rather similar)

Arcanine
January 11th, 2004, 10:00 PM
man, now i wish Preator was pink so you and Dakota could get picked! :P but i dont watch Star Trek and i think Preators a kewl name! :DYea and I wish I was a Admin here (nice blue color) but we dont get everything we want do we? XD

Hey if Kairi likes pink then get Kwesi to change it to pink. And if thay ask me if I wanted to be a Praetor (still not over that name) then I would say "thanks but no thanks pink is not my color". XD

January 11th, 2004, 10:01 PM
I then say, "This, is good..."
Keep the current name if you like to Kairi, it seems to suit the position anyway:)

Its not really in my place to say but... Color coding aside, I think the new members to the forums would have a hard time distinguishing between moderators and regular members especially when they need help with something. It might be a good idea to at least add mod or admin in there somewhere where everyone can see it.

Frostweaver
January 11th, 2004, 11:02 PM
any member with special status such as mods do get different colors for their names... i personally think it's enough already, as there's really not much you can do besides that (maybe except writing their name in binary or something crazy like that)

Admins- the lovely blue color that fits so well with the default skin that i use

Praetor (no "s")- a moss green color which stands out very well... which reminds me that I lost my moss green pencil crayon in my pencil crayon set

Super Moderators- the rather dull orange colors that crash right into the blue-ish background i have... but it looks a lot better if Plusle is used (but the Plusle one imho destroys the admin's blue)

Moderators- their names are of a darker blue which looks like it's just bold or something... but still you can tell the difference

it's clear enough or at least to me...

January 12th, 2004, 12:09 AM
Well Kairi, now that I know the true meaning of it I do like that name ^_^

btw don't be offended by what I'm going to say next...

When I first saw it I mistakened the name for "Predator", so the name should be really easy to remember. I remember ridiculous things well =P

This is not happening. So people stop responding to this topic. You know why this title is messed up? I'm going to reveal Kairi's secret. She is actually an admin, but she doesn't want to have the title because then everyone will hate her. The rule to be an admin here at PC is to own your own site and be a member. Kairi doesn't have that so she threatened to leave PC unless they would make her an admin. So the genious (and I use that term loosely) admins decided "duh, why don't we just give her the same powers as an admin, but not call her one? then no one is the wiser!" Well sorry to blow your cover sweetheart, but you are an admin! Why isn't Arcanine or Lightening an admin? I mean they work their tails off for PC, but they aren't getting considered for the position. Is it because Kairi whined and complained that if she didn't get her way she would throw a tantrum (a la Primeape) and leave? If you haven't noticed, over the past couple weeks I have tried to be the best admin possible, by not starting any fights, while Kairi has been insulting the staff at PC. And what does she get for that? A promotion? While I lose all my powers even though I've been doing a better job than her and I'm willing to help out more! Where is the justice in that!? Kairi has more power than admins! She can edit the styles, the users, anything she wants! Stever takes away my powers without even talking to me first, but I bet they are hard-coding her so that that can't happen to her because they know she doesn't deserve it. Anyway, I talked to Soph about this before she left and she agree completely. In the words of Soph before she left: "I agree completely." This is a complete joke and Kairi should go back to being a super mod at the most. I don't threaten to leave if I don't get my way. The other admins also called me highly unqualified, but how am I suposed to learn if no one will let me? I am trying my best now! I used to own a UBB with over 500 members where I installed tons of hacks! At least I have experience with forums. Anyway, I'll leave you with my New Year's Resolution:

To be more professional and a better admin.

Hey guys! This isnt a time to be mad or discouraged; this is a huge undertaking in PC HISTORY! For the first time ever you have been giving the opportunity to make an UNBELIEVABLE IMPACT in your community! :classic: All of the Key administrators (Steve, Ian, Sean and I) met yesterday to discuss how we could make members roles in the community greater. Thats where we drew up the plans for the Praetor Position and who better to model that position than Kairi right? YEA!! :knockedou

Now as you could prolly conclude... These admins we have in our community are crazy busy were talking hella busy! What better way to insure that our community is being saw after than to employee out best people to an organizational position? THIS CAN BE YOU! These guys we promote truly work their tails off for this community; theyre here day and night ensuring that everything goes according to plan AND WE LOVE EM FOR IT! Dont think that this is an impossible position to acquire people who hold the PRAETOR position just consistently display a towering level of work ethic. We applaud them for that effort!:cool:

Kairi is proudly the first Praetor the community has seen but she wont be the last. I want to see everyone aspiring to obtain such a prestigious role.

You can do it!

January 12th, 2004, 12:48 PM
Alakazam... that was rather uncalled for. o_o; I'd like to address where you mentioned Arcanine and I. Kairi does a lot more work than we do (no offense, Andy ;p). She ran the moderator interviews, she gets the mods on topic, and on top of that she's almost always active around PC. I wouldn't even QUALIFY for Preator because I simply don't have the initiative and the activity levels to do it. (Though I'm sure Arcanine will be promoted one day at this rate.) Kairi knows what she's doing and she's extremely mature about it. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean you have to go whining about it like that, okay?

Besides... didn't you want me demodded several weeks ago anyway? o_O; What's with the sudden reference to my amazing work?

You can do it!

You want to know what happened in this magical conversation? I'll tell you! Everyone ganged up on poor Alakazam and threatened to fire me! That's right, I'm all alone in this crual world! *starts crying* It's not fair! Whaa!!! It's not fair, I tell you!!!!!

Now that is what I would call whining Lightening. If I can be serious for a moment. I do not agree with this new position since Kairi nor anyone else can be trusted with such a high level of power. Technically they could mess up Poke Community really bad. Kairi mature? Please! She has been the one whining and complaining that quit and instulting the admins for being lazy. I'm just stating the facts, people! You want to hear a famous quote from Kairi? This was in the so-called super friends meeting between admins and Kairi (why the heck was she there?).

You're a jack@$$, Alakazam! - Kairi

By the way, originally it wasn't censored out like this, but I'm just trying to show everyone who is now in control of everything. I mean look at the direspect! I'm an admin, dang it and I deserve at least some respect. I don't curse her out and she shouldn't do the same thing to me. When I kindly asked for her to say sorry, she said tough luck, I have more powers than you *pulls down eyelid* or something to the effect of that. She is an absolute disagrace to PC and I will not be silenced anymore. I'm just speaking my mind and saying what really happened. Outside of this thread I have been a gentlemen and I will continue to do that since I care about PC so much, but apparently Kwesi, Stever and Ian don't because they are hanging the reigns over to Kairi. I could use tons of malacious words to describe her, but I'll let her actions speak for herself. I don't want to stoop to her level anyway. Hopefully everyone at PC will see the light, but probably not.

I dont see too many professionals who openly cry like that. Better like in the future with your resolution.

You're a jack@$$, Alakazam! Kairi

Yeah, except I didnt have the exclamation mark. You want to know why I said that? You were talking every three seconds not letting anyone else say anything, not listening, going on and on about unrelated things, insulting Steve for not having a credit card, and beingin generala jackas$.

I am a lot more mature than someone who posts these longs posts trying to bring someone else down because hes jealous. I didnt threaten to quit without this job, get your facts strait before you accuse. Even after we had that chat and I was offered that job, I still had planned on quitting. It was my friends and relationships with others that made me come back, and Kwesi wanted to give me this spot so I could help him and the rest of you take care of the Pokmon Community. Your boundless jealousy furthers your immaturity.

I was there because we were discussing the terms of my new position, and rightfully I needed to have a say. A better question would be why we invited someone who we all had to end up blocking because he was being so obnoxious.

By the way, originally it wasn't censored out like this, but I'm just trying to show everyone who is now in control of everything. I mean look at the direspect! I'm an admin, dang it and I deserve at least some respect. I don't curse her out and she shouldn't do the same thing to me.

Outside of this thread I have been a gentlemen and I will continue to do that since I care about PC so much, but apparently Kwesi, Stever and Ian don't because they are hanging the reigns over to Kairi. I could use tons of malacious words to describe her, but I'll let her actions speak for herself. I don't want to stoop to her level anyway. Hopefully everyone at PC will see the light, but probably not.

I respect Kwesi because, even though he doesnt have a lot of time to spend on PC, or is into Pokmon that much anymore, he still knows he created PC and tries to take care of it. That includes making the praetor position so that qualified members can carry on in things he simply cant do for PC anymore. Your title may say admin, but you do not behave like one. Thus, no respect. I did not say I had more powers than you. The exact quote is:

alakapcc: Haruka303 You're a jackass, Alakazam.

alakapcc: I want an apology

PokePalaceNet: for what

Haruka: I want admin, we can't all have what we want.

Stop defaming my topic, we were all having fun discussing my title until you screwed it up. This is closed, and leave it that way.

Arcanine
January 12th, 2004, 07:36 PM
Ok im going to have to put a word in. Sean your a Admin and every one knows that but you can not stop Kwesi from making a new rank and putting who he wants in there. You was the only one in there not wanting to make Kairi a higher rank (and yes I saw that chat log with all the Admins and Kairi).

I'd like to address where you mentioned Arcanine and I. Kairi does a lot more work than we do (no offense, Andy ;p). None taken (to the no offense part), I mean Kairi does do a lot more work then any other staff member here so she is perfect pick for the job.

I do not agree with this new position since Kairi nor anyone else can be trusted with such a high level of power. Technically they could mess up Poke Community really bad. Come one its not like every one is going to be made this new rank. Kairi knows more about vB then most members here (the only others I can think of is SA, he has his own vB forums. Kwesi, look around and you will know what im talking about. Steve Ian, works on PC so thay know there way around vB). And if your going to say "no one can be trusted with such a high level of power" then what about you? Steve? Ian? Kwesi ownes the forums so he can do what he wants with it. So what you are saying is S-Mods can have Admin powers even if thay have been here a long time and knows PC like the pack of there hand, but some one that has a site and just joined PC and just got made Admin can be trusted? Sean when some one is made Mod or S-Mod or Preator it goes in trust, every time a Admin logs off and there is another staff member on then you are trusting that staff member to keep PC safe (if its a Mod then keep his/her forum safe).
Oh and Kairi is not a full Admin. I remember her saying she cant edit member Profiles, and who knows what elce she cant do.
If it was up to me then Kairi would not be a Preator she would be an Administrator.
I had to say that, I dont care if you de-Mod me ban me or what ever (im going to stand up for what is right) I had to say that and get that out. So much for me being a yes man (I told you I would do something like this if I neede to).

John Denver
January 21st, 2004, 07:59 PM
hmm...

I am an S-Mod...but that doesn't mean I'll get this...

Lightning is an S-Mod, that doesn't mean she'll get praetor...

Arcanine is an S-Mod, that doesn't mean he'll get it either...

Honestly Kazam, one S-Mod becomes a handicapped admin and you can't take it? Please man, that's jealousy if I ever saw it. you think that your all high and mighty because your an admin, what have you done with this that kwesi hasn't or can do anyway? Ian and Steve don't seem to do much either, but I have more respect for them than I do you...

Your acting just like Arwen did when she said she wasn't getting the right respect for her being a mod. Can you not handle someone else having more power than you anyways?

Your calling Kairi immature? Good Golly...she calls you one name at one point, I'm surprised she didn't bust open sooner...she handled it a LOT better than you'd handle being an S-Mod against a crazy admin...

Geez...

Come to think of it, if Kairi, Sa, and Kwesi were the admins...they'd prolly do a WAY better job then you 3 and Kwesi alone...

Bai,
Dakota
