Joe says:

welcome to the club my good man :D

25th Aug 2005, 14:50

seaneeboy says:

Cheers - and thanks to mat, Hope it's a help :)

25th Aug 2005, 14:51

seaneeboy says:

Ooh! I've lost me avatar! Will have to fix that...

25th Aug 2005, 14:51

Helen says:

It was all those impressive questions wasn't it?

25th Aug 2005, 14:51

seaneeboy says:

Haha - probably more "Oh for gods sake, just make him a mod, it'll shut him up!"

25th Aug 2005, 14:52

Helen says:

We still need a girl mod.

25th Aug 2005, 14:53

mat says:

I say again - are you volunteering?

25th Aug 2005, 14:54

Helen says:

I'm not a subscriber (when I get a regular income). I'd feel bad.

25th Aug 2005, 14:55

Joe says:

Helen, join us.

25th Aug 2005, 14:55

beth says:

i 've been here longer than helen :(

why is she everyone's favourite?

25th Aug 2005, 15:01

Helen says:


25th Aug 2005, 15:04

Joe says:

I love you both equally

25th Aug 2005, 15:07

Helen says:

Well, I'd quite happily rotate pictures. And be a girl at the same time.

25th Aug 2005, 15:13

Joe says:

accept the offer then!

25th Aug 2005, 15:15

Joe says:

I've got that covered

25th Aug 2005, 15:20

Helen says:

OK, I volunteer.

25th Aug 2005, 15:21

Joe says:

quick! mat! get the moderator magic wand out, before she changes her mind!

25th Aug 2005, 15:25

beth says:

it's ok. i've seen all your friends lists. i know who care.

25th Aug 2005, 15:41

seaneeboy says:

Um, do you lot mind? Perhaps I've been niieve but being appointed mod has been quite a big thing for me, I do see it as a real achievement. To have you lot talk about it being a mates club created so the "right" people can have extra power is just pure mince - and frankly quite insulting.

25th Aug 2005, 15:58

Helen says:

Congratulations Sean, you know they/we don't mean it like that.

25th Aug 2005, 16:04

mat says:

The reason I upgraded your account, Sean, is becuase you have reported a few abuse thingys, and have taken an active (and very well balanced, imo) interest in the site's moderation. I know you well enough now to safely say that you won't abuse your power and that you will moderate in a way that I would like the site to be moderated.

You are (one of the) the right people for the job, and you're right that it is an achievement - I don't give out mod accounts to just anybody, and I don't do it lightly or without thought either.

25th Aug 2005, 16:05

McN says:

Congratulations SeaneeboyandHelen !

25th Aug 2005, 16:06

seaneeboy says:

Cheers mat, dinny want to spit the dummy quite so soon, but there ya go :)

25th Aug 2005, 16:07

Helen says:

Hey, I've only volunteered.

I need assessment.

25th Aug 2005, 16:08

well done.. bows made to sean

25th Aug 2005, 16:08

Euphro (it's the seasickness...) says:

Well done Sean!

25th Aug 2005, 16:09

anonymous says:

"I need assessment" snigger : )

25th Aug 2005, 16:14

seaneeboy says:

Thanks for the well wishes, peeps :)

25th Aug 2005, 16:23

beth says:

sean.. i couldn't think of a better person for the job.

i am just indulging in petty sibling rivalry.

25th Aug 2005, 16:24

Joe says:

Sean, no insult intended, apologies.

It appears that Dude has deleted his account, I really hope this was nothing to do with it.

25th Aug 2005, 17:14

teflon says:

That is a bit worrying. Dude! Come back! What did we do?!

25th Aug 2005, 17:29

Helen says:


Sean, I like the way you changed your post title to reflect your more serious stature. You'll be a great mod.

25th Aug 2005, 17:42

Rich says:

He did threaten to do it a while back, for reasons best known only to himself.

Man, I dunno, the guy's got a lot of friends here, but he seems to think that if some random person calls him a wanker then the only option is slash-and-burn max-destruct. Come on man, united we stand, etc.

Oh, and well done Sean!

25th Aug 2005, 17:50

kostika says:

YAY Sean!! Well done mate.

25th Aug 2005, 18:45

seaneeboy says:

Thank you people!

Am gutted the dude has left us.

Kos - I think if you pop over to the forum and volunteer over there you'll be snapped up :)

25th Aug 2005, 19:02

RareAquaticBadger says:

Wow, congrats Sean!

A giant haggis AND becoming moderator? Could your week get any better?

25th Aug 2005, 19:33

kostika says:

I was only joking Sean. Deleted it cause it sounded like begging. :o)

25th Aug 2005, 19:51

Bows deeply and humbly to Sean. *leaves muttering how I really need to get a camera that works and start blogging proper...*

25th Aug 2005, 19:59

seaneeboy says:

RAB - all I need now is a commend from Rare Aquatic Badget and it's possibly the best week ever!

*double takes*

Woah! Best Week Ever!

bronxelf says:

Hey congratulations Sean! :D :D

Matt S says:

Purging is good for the soul.
I need a time out for a bit I think. I want to write and have been given the chance to do so. I've been a bit hot headed of late, and I'm taking myself out of this community because of that fact before I say something I may later regret deeply. I've spoken kind of to two mobloggers.
I dont want to be Dude anymore, its not me. I cant be Matt, because you have one already and it would be confusing.
I don't truly know why, just that I have deleted my moblog. Maybe to push myself to create something else wonderful with other people. Lets face it, I was shit at it.
Some may have already made up your minds as to why I left. If you have then cool. I told Rich i might be back some day, but not for a bit.
Keep yer eyes peeled, you might not know its me but I'm still out there. Just not in pictures.

26th Aug 2005, 00:39

sh*t dude, sounds like youve thought everything through, make sure your happy dude, thats the key to everything!! bye for now

26th Aug 2005, 00:43

Steve says:

With great power comes great responsibility!

26th Aug 2005, 01:10

mat says:

Hey, Dude/Matt - I spell my name differently from you, so feel free to be a Matt if you want :)

26th Aug 2005, 01:15

alexis says:

congrats there , mr.sean!

and, Dude, you're the Matt with a second t.
also, I will internet stalk you on livejournal, so, keep up with that. : ) (please)

26th Aug 2005, 02:06

seaneeboy says:

Matt/Dude/Mr Remo - I'll miss ya, but that's not to say you should stay to maintain a false you. Good luck with the soul searching, and if you find one I hope you bring it to Moblog. Hell, even if you don't I don't think you'd be alone amongst mobloggers.

I think you're right in what you've done, and closed a door - I'm quite keen to see what door you open. I'm betting it's the square one.

26th Aug 2005, 10:00

teflon says:

no, everyone knows the best door is the triangle one :)

26th Aug 2005, 10:02

kostika says:

Well its a small one, but he's at least cracked the round door I offered him :o)

26th Aug 2005, 10:10

Groovicron says:

Matt- That desire to create something can be a strong one can't it? I hope you can follow it through in a way I've never been able to.

And so the thread isn't totally highjacked.

Seanee- Go you! Congrats on your elevation to modhood.

26th Aug 2005, 10:28

Matt says:

Thanks guys. It means alot.

26th Aug 2005, 11:38

Steve says:

Yay for Matt.....

And of course Seaneeboy

26th Aug 2005, 11:41

jaggysnake says:

Well done Sean!

And take of yourself Matt/Dude!

26th Aug 2005, 11:47

teflon says:

One of the things I like about moblog is that it doesn't matter if you're a good photographer or not; sure, we have some people who take good pictures - but I wouldn't consider myself as one of them. I just use it as somewhere to put pictures of all the cool things I see and previously would have thought 'damn, wish I had a camera', or generally document my day because it's less hassle than writing.
Sorry you're going.. see you around

26th Aug 2005, 11:50

Dhamaka (not logged on) says:

way to go Sean, sorry to see you go Matt/Dude.. Wishing you all the best on your travels

26th Aug 2005, 11:58

Groovicron says:

I'm certainly not a good photographer but I swear one day, one day I WILL get an image highlighted!

26th Aug 2005, 13:36

Groovicron says:

and then I shall happy dance.

26th Aug 2005, 13:36

Sean> Always happy to be of service :oD (oh, and you called me badget! Sounds like a good name for my backing singers...)

I think the comments here really show the main strength of moblog; it's rare to find such a good natured and friendly community on the web these days. Good luck Matt-with-the-extra-t.

26th Aug 2005, 20:12

Euphro (someday I'll get this right) says:

Good luck Matt. I look forward to seeing your next incarnation :)
