    ... @Layell!

    I was tempted to draft a long congratulations post filled to the brim with puns in honor of our newest moderator, but I have a feeling we'll be getting enough of those from the man of the hour himself.

    Layell has been a vital part of Orange Islands from its inception. For over a year, he has organized and hosted Orange Islands movie nights, providing IRC regulars with hours of crackpot jokes and cringe-inducing witicisms. With Pokémon X and Pokémon Y right around the corner (only two months to go!), we were in need of fresh blood. Luckily, we didn't have to look too far.

    Please join me in congratulating a very deserving user on his promotion!

    Congratulations! I kinda saw this coming seeing how involved he is.

    Back in November when I wasn't really part of the community yet, I showed up to my first Orange Islands movie night. I said that I was new and he was literally the only one who said hi to me. good guy :)

    layell's first act of power will be changing all of the art on the site to poorly drawn MS paint blisseys

    and then he will move movie night to a time i'm not at work

    I would advise against doing this as the residual energy from your many flaps of chin have alarmed earthquake watch centres all across Canada.

    While I close this thread be sure my time as moderator is only beginning.
