Don’t mind me, just here to defend the honour of Yorkshire! Still alive, often check on here but see you all having fun without me so no need for me to impose! Hope all is ok with everyone and 2018 isn’t being too much of a bastard so far

I'm having a sad moment hearing that John Mahoney passed away I always enjoyed seeing him on Fraiser.

As of today Kondor is back to being a moderator and the eyes of TUP in his much different time zone.

Much like Jonathan Coachman he's back to his old position, where he is comfortable.

It makes total sense not just for the time difference between UK and himself, but also because he's in charge of Ticket Wars.

Now he's full control of not only there but everywhere, so if a MUSA situation happened again he could put a stop to it.

Beware of Kon and his ban hammer, as he has the grapefruits to land it straight on Russ Bus before.

Back in charge Kon haha. This place does tend to run itself in fairness but with more activity comes the need for more staff members to keep it that way.

My concern is that Kon has proven to be far more heavy-handed than you, Adders, (though to be fair just about everyone but myself would be more heavy-handed than you) and has a history of butting heads with other long-standing members of this site who have contributed far more wrestling discussion quite peaceably.

That said, Kon has had a much better run since his return than what I observed previous, and you can't deny he is quite observant of what goes on around here at a time you are typically catching 40 winks. He also has a take charge personality required to make sure shit gets done in a timely manner.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a bit nervous about this, but I am also cautiously optimistic as well, because there are a number of things he can do to better the place.

He will be fine. That's in the past and since he's been back it's been great.

Yeah if we'd have had someone in power your side of the world already, MUSA wouldn't have been able to edit so many of his posts because he'd have got banned. For the record MUSA isn't banned and still free to post. I just changed his user permissions to take away the ability to edit any posts.

Well he will keep Ticket Wars going strong being able to sticky topics and the rest of it without me getting involved in what others on here started and should take all the credit for. We do really well for being an active forum, but if he can get some more newbies in that would be the best way to "better the place"

I agree on all counts, but I just wanted to make my concerns public as well, not as a point of contention or as some kind of dumb veiled threat (which is completely contrary to everything I am, and I just don't play the game of thrones), but because I seriously doubt I'm the only one thinking these thoughts and I think it would behoove Kondor, yourself, and everyone else here to know where people stand on the subject right from the get-go. 

I'm actually glad not only that Kon is back and active again, but that we have him as a moderator here because I think he'll do a good job. I would just include that sometimes discretion is the better part of valor. He and I both tend to be a bit too argumentative, and with him in a place of authority, that can cause more problems than it can solve.

I was recently re-reading a thread where Willy and I were talking about being moderator, and it reminded me of my time as moderator at other forums prior to coming here. I feel like I did a pretty good job there, but I wasn't a whole lot different if at all in my approach to running things than you are, however Kondor has shown he is a lot more on the ball as to what's going on around here than I ever would have been. It still is beyond me that he even noticed what MUSA was doing. That would have been a great catch had he already had the authority to stop it. 

Lest I forget, Congrats Kon! I am happy for you. I'm glad that likely means you'll be sticking around long-term. 

That said, go update the Ticket Wars Winners thread! :)
