    For all of you hoping to get modded.


    Saito: what did u say?
    Vineon: :[
    Vineon: I said that we do need new mods and believe you'd do a great job
    Saito: sorry I left to quick
    Saito: really?
    Vineon: although you need to ask Umbrella Umbreon for it, he's the one making thsoe decisions... tell him I approve your nomination

    Saito: Vinenon approves my nomination to be a new mod
    Umbrella Umbreon: Awesome.
    Umbrella Umbreon: What sort of skills do you have?
    Saito: Im confident, loyal. Basiclly i'll be here everyday working hard for you.
    Umbrella Umbreon: You seem well qualified
    Saito: And I won't kick people for no reason.
    Umbrella Umbreon: You need to talk to our Skills Director, CarlCarlson
    Umbrella Umbreon: tell him your qualifications and he will make the decision

    Saito: Vinenom and Umbrella Umbreon approve my nomination to be a new mod
    Saito: Umbrella Umbreon told me to talk to you.
    CarlCarlson: oh good we really need some new mods don't you agree?
    Saito: Yes, although the ones you do have are doing afine job
    CarlCarlson: That's good to know, I like hearing good things about the staff.
    Saito: Yes.
    Saito: Well about the Moderating business
    CarlCarlson: You seem mature enough to handle the responsibilities IMO.
    Saito: cool
    CarlCarlson: However, I am unable to make the final call.
    Saito: Who is?
    CarlCarlson: Negator will have to have evaluate you I'm afraid.
    CarlCarlson: But tell him I think it's OK.
    Saito: Is he tough?
    CarlCarlson: Well he is a very good judge of character so we shall see. Talk to him though, he'll get you set up I'm sure.
    Saito: thanx

    Saito: Vinenom, Umbrella Umbreon and CarlCarlson approve my nomination to be a new mod
    Negator: Oh! Well congradulations. I think you would do a fantastic job, a 'bang up job' if you will. This is just from what I hear! You seem strong and level headed.
    Saito: Thank you
    Negator: However, unfortunately, I alone cannot provide the clearance you need to get your mods.
    Negator: Record Ruiner is the Administrator of Proper Moderation Conduct
    Negator: I'll have to forward you to him.
    Saito: I've been hearing that a lot lately.
    Saito: If I didn't no better I'd say your all the same person. lol. ^^
    Negator: Oh! That would be silly. We need many different mods to make Smogon work!
    Negator: Wait.
    Saito: huh. It just seems uncanny that you heard from the last three so quickly.
    Saito: Its almost as if your stringing me on.
    Saito: You all sound the same also.
    Saito: Or atleast type in the same manner.
    Saito: Who is the highest authority here anyway?
    Saito: I want the FINAL say.

    (skarm was idling so acura had to redirect him to someone else : gooball)

    Saito: I have to talk to you in order to become a new mod.
    goofball: hmm sup
    Saito: so what do you say?
    goofball: hmm
    goofball: thinking :)
    Saito: cool
    goofball: cool I think you will be an excellent mod
    Saito: awesome
    Saito: Can you mod me?
    goofball: no i cant but you need to meet the owner of the server Vineon. talk to him and he will mod you
    Saito: cool thanx

    Saito: I have approval from all the mods to be modded by you
    Vineon: wow did you ask everyone?
    Saito: Everyone that I was told
    Vineon: well if they ALL approve, tell Umbreon Umbrella that the FINAL decision is yes, you should be modded
    Vineon: and that should be it
    Saito: ok

    Saito: I have approval to be Modded by you. Please say this is it.
    Umbrella Umbreon: You know what this means?
    Umbrella Umbreon: You have to battle me and win
    Saito: There is no way I could do that
    Umbrella Umbreon: Do you want mods or not
    Saito: I do not match you in experience
    Umbrella Umbreon: Well, if you will not battle me you will have to talk to my associate director CarlCarlson. He deals with all pre-mods who don't wish to battle.

    Saito: fine i'll fight you
    Umbrella Umbreon: The decision has already been made. Nothing in this process is irreversable
    Umbrella Umbreon: You must talk to CarlCarlson.
