Astinus, one of the true veteran mods of PC, has received a coat of orange paint and become a super mod! Unfortunately it does not match blue Nidoking at all, but maybe he can make it work out.





...Maybe.

Congratulations! =D

Congratulations, Astinus!

We don't know each other well, but I do know that you've been with the staff for a long time now and that you've been doing a great job. Enjoy being h-staff, man~

Wow, congratulations Astinus! I'm sure after all those years of moderator blue, you were the perfect choice to become the next super moderator!

Yo Asty congrats on the orange powerup!

I've been so used to you in blue I didn't want it to change, but when Cat Dog stepped down I was speculating potential replacements and I immediately thought it was going to be you. While an orange username and a shiny blue Nidoking don't exactly match, I know you'll have loads of fun moderating everywhere on the forums and that secret hideout known as Headquarters.

I'm sorry I missed this, but we're all proud of you. Now your first job is to find a new mod for FF&W!

Congrats on the big orange promotion, Astinus! You really deserved it, and even though I don't know you personally, I'm sure you'll make an awesome new Super Mod. Do your very best in your new position and make us all proud! :D

Finally. It only took 60 years.

Glad to see you in orange. You've deserved it for so long and I'm so happy your time has come.

Title is a reference to one of asty's nicknames, right? Hunter was finally hunted down.

So happy for you, asty. Sorry I never got around to fulfilling my promise to you. But I remember it. Will definitely do it next year when I do not have so much stuff to study. Anyway, congratulations! I have seen how dedicated you are to pc during the time I served as staff and I'll just say that you absolutely deserve it. No question. Keep rocking, kay? Best wishes.

Same here! You deserved this more and I couldn't be even more proud. <3 Go on and shine bright with your new orange coat of paint (and you should get your Nidoking spray painted haha), and best of luck with your smodness! <3

MOMMA!! I'm so proud of you. You've been the oldest moderator here for, well, a long time. You were the first moderator I really talked to and made friends with. And you adopted me as your "is this a boy or a girl?" child. If anyone deserved this position, it's you. I know you'll do great, momma! :) I really think this should have happened ages ago, but better late than never, right?

Fun fact: As you've moved on to smod-hood, you've passed your "Oldest Moderator" crown down to me. Did you ever think this would happen? lol

Edit: Uhhhhh don't spray paint your Nidoking tbh because you without a blue Nidoking just doesn't seem right lol :(

:) I saw Syd mention this on twitter and had to come see if it was true. I've always really admired your mod work and I know you'll do just a phenomenal job as an s-mod. You've definitely earned it.

Considering that you've been a mod for as long as I've been a memeber (about), I'd say that you damn well deserve this. =]

Congratulations on the promotion, Asty! You'll be amazing, I just know it. And make sure you keep the other smods on a leash, cause you know how cray cray they can get. And of course, try not to turn cray cray yourself. D;

/shot

Seriously, though, congratulations! <3

As soon as I have to stay at a place without wifi, this happens!

I don't know you that well, but I could quickly gather that you've held the moderator position for a much longer time than the others, and there must be a good reason! So congratulations, I'm sure you'll do amazing. :]

I had a feeling it would happen at some point, you've been a mod for such a long time it made since you'd became an smod. Congrats on being promoted Astinus!!

    Thanks, buddy! I'll have to find a rotten mango at my store and take a picture of it to share with you. Given the track record of my store, it's very likely that will happen.

    I'll miss the blue (one of my favorite colors) but orange goes so well with Nimh.

    Haha at all the people saying orange and blue don't go together! I have a Furby with that color combination, and she's pretty.

    We'll have to see about that last bit, now won't we?

    It seems fitting that I adopted you as a "boy or girl?" child. Like parent, like kid apparently!

    I always thought that you and me would be sitting in rocking chairs, closing threads by pushing them with canes, and complaining about the good ol' days of everything while we're on vBulletin version 27.

    As I said on Twitter, Nimh's not going anywhere, so I'll always have a blue Nidoking with me.

    I literally spent the last day thinking it was a great idea to recolour a Nidoking sprite for you, did it , then realized Scarf beat me to it.

    Oh well. Enjoy your slightly less gold Nidoking! What matters is that you're in a position now which gives you a lot more leeway to show everyone how dedicated you are, and how much you can do for the forum. I'm looking forward to working with you on h-staff, Hunter. I'm sure you'll help us bring (even more) great things to PC!
