    Since a lot of our regular moderators are now Super Moderators, we have a bunch of forums with only 1 or 0 regular moderators. So if you guys want to split up what forums you watch over the most that would probably be a good idea. I'm sure it is a pain to have to look over every single forum. I expect everybody to pay attention to UT though. Maybe a few of you could keep a close eye on the remaining pokemon forums, and then a few could watch the socialization in the empire section, and then a few others could be in charge of the netbattle/suggestions section. So yeah, you guys can discuss what forums you want to be "in charge" of here so that we know every forum is being moderated.

    Usually I have enough time to watch over every single forum, though most of my time goes to the Pokemon ones. NetBattle/Competitor shouldn't be much work besides the occasional JUMPMAN BANED ME FROM POKEMON NETBATLE PLOEASE.

    Socialization is my mainstay, it's my bread and butter of Smogon. But the reason I asked for super mods is to help out in UT (or anywhere else it's needed, for that matter), so I want everyone to know that if there's some moderating that needs to be done in a pokemon forum but you can't get to it, let me know and I'll take care of it. I'll also be popping my head in those forums a little bit, but being as I am unfamiliar with them I won't do any outright moderating without some prompting.

    I keep a pretty close watch over the Netbattle/Competitor forum, in particular.

    I spend the most time in Congregation, UT, advance, and tournaments. I'm also a nazi in NB/Competitor.

    I'll, of course, maintain sole responsibility of the tutoring forum as well; step off that one niggers.

    p.s. way to leave a nasty redirect in my pristine forum, Carl!

    I read Socialization etc and NB/Competitor the most. I rarely read UT because I don't know jack shit about DP but I guess I can check it out every once in a while.

    Just fyi, I popped in to #smogon briefly last night and let whoever was there know, but right now I'm posting real quick from work to say that this weekend is my fraternity alumni weekend. I will be going on a bender starting the second I get out of work at about ten after five, and I will probably not have any free time (or be sober enough) to check the forums or even drop in on the chat. Keep an eye on my forums for me, smack some stupid heads around in Firebot in my honor, I'll be back sometime Sunday evening after I detox.
