Whoa-ho, I got promoted!
« on: January 06, 2008, 09:01:05 AM »
And in such a short time, too, even before I could find my desk.

franksolich is a moderator, apparently, of the primitives' forum here.

It's going to be fun, and as soon as I get this car problem all straightened out (I'm more than 40 miles away from the vehicle, by the way, and it's Sunday morning), I'm going to be dragging over campfires from Skins's island exclusive to conservativescave, posted nowhere else.

By the way, Kevin's been looking around for a "better" name for this site; being otherwise distracted (as one gets when a car breaks down), all I could think of was "skinnersnemesis" or "skinnersagony," but that of course won't do.  Once the cerebral cells get going in their proper direction, I'll do some thinking, but if anybody has any creative ideas about a "better" name for this site, holler at Kevin; I'm sure he'd be happy to hear from you.

Congrats on your promotion!

I've never been great at finding the best threads over there; I HAVE gotten some practice this week. I'm glad you're here.  :-)

I can't think of anyone more deserving of having the title of "moderator" beside their name.

Good job sir.

I've never been great at finding the best threads over there; I HAVE gotten some practice this week.

I think everybody uses a different technique to finding good campfires on Skins's island.

Most seem to wander around, selecting items by subject or content, and of course that gives the most accurate overall impression of what Skins's island really is.

Some seem to concentrate upon just one or two forums on Skins's island.

I'm not exactly sure what I do--as Sigmund Freud said, one can't analyze oneself--but I've always tried to put a human face on individual primitives (which is why I've always baptized them with a more-appropriate monicker than their official primitive name; the primitives tend to be really stupid, just really stupid, when selecting screen-names they think define themselves).

And just as if at a real-life party, when I get out the boat and row over to Skins's island, I look around for primitives with faces.

I agree with you about the MH Forum, I've never posted anything from that it isn't playing fair.  I hope people will stay away from it as they did at CU.  There is enough in the other fora there for endless entertainment.

You definitely are the right person for this position, Frank  :cheersmate: And, you are wonderful at picking the campfires.

As for a name, I've been doing a little thinking on that myself...DUmmieBust? Nah, we don't want "DUmmie" in our name  :lmao:

Sooner or later, someone will.
