geo: IINM, the most extreme thing I’ve done is call out online players for not coming out to support their favored game in a thread about how offline tourneys should be run. Unfortunately, it didn’t seem to do anything to help (or hurt) the turnout. But I don’t regret saying that since it’s what many tourney regulars I spoke to (ST and HDR) wanted to see. Feel free to link that topic as an example of my personal views and others can make their own conclusions.
I think I’m somewhat tilted towards ST and certainly in the offline camp (but only when it comes to offline competition discussions). However, I’m not sure where I’m perceived or should be perceived by others. I’ve attended plenty of ST events, as well as plenty of HDR events, and plenty of online events as well. I’ve run both ST and HDR tourneys that would have otherwise not happened. A few HDR fans say I’ve poisoned the HDR well. A few ST fans say I’m too lenient towards HDR. So once again, I guess folks will have to make their own holistic judgments.
But for mod, we just need someone who regularly checks in, kills spam, moves posts that don’t belong to a topic, and fairly closes the occasional needless topic. The recent spiel in the T.Hawk thread emphasized the need for an active mod to move things to their proper location. Anybody who remains civil and has interest & knowledge in ST will do. Since I felt I met those qualifications and had been mod elsewhere, I agreed that it could work out.
For anyone who would feel uncomfortable with me as mod here, then please consider papasi instead. He’s a levelheaded individual who’s done and spent a lot to support ST in his area as well as creating a great online hitbox viewer that’s basically supplanted YBH.
