Delegation: The transfer of authority by one person to another.

When you start avoiding your web site because you know it's gonna be full of More Shit I Gotta Do™, it's time for change.

We now have 5 shiny robotic Ambassadors here to serve our every n00b ass-kicking pleasure. You're already familiar with Shindig and Talio holding the line, and Ompa has been doing the job for ages with only a custom title to back up his authority. These three will be joined by two guys who have been around pretty much forever and have graciously agreed to help clean this place up. Death and Pineapple will, effective immediately, be herding the pissants into small, defenseless groups for summary execution.

But wait, there's more! Now how much would you pay? You also get two new Founders absolutely free! From the "giving credit where due" department, we've decided to promote two people who have been here since the beginning and have given loads of their valuable time to make this site what it is. Groove and Julie will be joining The Sacred Triumverate as we look down upon you and pass judgement. Or light our own farts, depending.

Let me be the first to extend my congratulations to Ompa, Death, Pineapple, Groove, and Julie on their new positions!

Cx, is that YOU on the right in that pic?

That would explain what happened to hocken and all those other guys who were new at about the time I joined the NIC...

Carbonite. Wow. Can I assume that the temperatures were purposerfully mis-calibrated to ensure that the effects of "hibernation" weren't so easily revsrsed?

Congrats to all the "new guys".

And Piney, you're "the wind beneath my wings".

Thank god, there was nothing this site needed more than more asskickery. I couldn't agree more with your choices CX. I look forward to your first bans. The first of many.

Good choices, I must say.

We always had their help, but now they've got that handy button that Talio has been talking about for the longest time!

Good luck to you new body guards, this place needs some support. Julie and Groove had always been founders, so it's about time they were recognized.

I'm pretty sure that Day 1 is today, so...

Shuweet; I'm just thinking to myself that, since reaction times before were, well, "mangelhaft," they should be like five times better now, epecially since I've seen ompa and Piney on every morning/night (for me, living EST) now...

Well, congrats peoples! Better not make too much blimey come about from all this, eh?

Hey, it's business as usual guys, carry on.

If it hurts your eyes and makes your stomach turn, chances are that it's going to do the same to us...and we'll do our best to clean it up. Proactively, if it's possible.

Thanks for the opportunity to be of service to you.

Well that certainly makes things a whole mess easier. Now remember boys and girls, more executioners mean more excecutions. I see a large influx of NHQ members coming in the near future. Hopefully they're ready.

You don't know about Death?

You have to read more and post less or something, bud. Death has been around since the beginning and has become more active recently. You'll see that he has posted in topics pointing retards in the right direction fairly often.

He's definitely going to be part of this site's turn-around.

Also, Congratulations to all of you... Happy exocutioning.

While I support the selection of Ompa, Death, Groove, Piney, and Julie to enter the ranks of our authoritarian rulers (Don't you think it's about time CX started a cult of personality?) I'm kinda sad that it is even needed. I mean you can draw parrelles to the so called "War on Tear"** ours is a war on stupidity, and as we all know the internet is full of a near endless supply of morons. It's a never ending battle and if we let them stay then the idiots win.

At any rate guys and gal enjoy your new (and abusable ;) ) powers and fight the good fight.

**Political side note: George Bush doesn't or can't pronounce the two syllables of Terror, so obviously we have been fighting a war on Tear, Tearists, and tearrism for the last four years rather than Terror, Terrorists and terrorism. Hopefully the textile industry is looking into better ways to prevent tears for the US government.

Hey, thanks for the well-wishes. I'll answer this one for cx.

I myself am not in a happy habit of choppin' everything down in my path, but it's kind of like weeding. Just the things that are keeping the fields from growing, we will identify, amend, then terminate. Makes room for new and fruitful growth. It's not rocket science.


About the rubric; it's simple, really; I'll even put it in print, this time.

Code of Conduct

Think Before You Post.

Don't post unless you have something (useful or beneficial) to say

Avoid AIM-style spelling (lol, u, ne, ppl, etc)

Avoid 1337-speak (s0 |_@m3)

Use capitalization and punctuation correctly

Don't double-post - use the edit button.

Don't post in months-old topics unless you have something significant to add

Don't ask questions that have been answered already - use the built-in search function and try Google first


Acceptable Post Content

No Pr0n links or images

No spam

Stay on topic

No plagiarism

No pointless flames

Creation of multiple accounts will result in deletion of all accounts.

Your Posting Privileges

If you break any of the above rules, the NerfHaven staff can, and very likely will, delete your account with little or no warning. If you repeatedly troll or spam on this forum I will personally ensure that your Internet access is terminated within two (2) working days.




If you understand rule number one (think before posting), that alone subsequently carries all the rest of the rules along.

Fourteen simple rules. It should be duck soup.

Notice also that the italicized latter title says posting "privileges". Some people mistake these as posting "rights". Wrong one there.

Oppose these rules = weeds.

I agree with Piney; I won't be going around banning people on sight, but I won't exactly let anyone get away with repeated offenses. If anyone feels that they have a question better not asked on open forums, feel free to PM me; I usually can answer in a few hours or less, as I almost always have my email account open.

To be honest, I could have seen this coming. It won't hurt though. Shinny and Talio really have had to keep track of a lot. This addition will definitely govern the Haven smoothly.

Congrats on the new positions, y'all. Zeus has looked upon you with favor, and now you may reside with him on Olympus.

Sorry to break it to you, but NerfHaven isn't an RPG. Your post number isn't equivalent to kill count, and there's no clan ranking. I hope you really don't care that much about a "ranking" here on the 'Haven, or your post number.

My congratulations to the above: well deserved and not unexpected!

The help is certainly appreciated, and all who were promoted are more than deserving.

Some of you may have noticed my diminished presence around here. I assure you that my decline will continue so long as the digits in my course numbers increase. Rock bottom is expected the semester before I graduate.
