We forumites can argue over many things, and can usually find a reason to disagree with each other in ways that would cause the rest of humanity to question our sanity.

 

But as players who enjoy the game and the forum we come here for many reasons. To learn, to share, to rant, to troll, to laugh and to make friends.

 

Navigating this is about as tough as you can get, and certainly easier than anything the game can throw at you. One wrong move and you might cause someone who's played thousands of games to leave and never return. Key to this for Wargaming are the mods, and I've just noticed.

 

Jahrakajin (Kevin) is no longer a mod.......:ohmy:

 

As this is the gameplay section, and another mod with a different view to common sense moderation might arrive, I'd like to point out that the absence of Kevin as a mod may significantly impact on my gameplay and cause me to YOLO more through sheer frustration (just to keep it on topic).

 

Anyhow, if it's true and you're no longer a mod Jahrakajin, then thanks for your contribution and all the best.....:medal:

 

If we're being true to form, someone will find a reason to argue with this thread as well.....:B

MODs should be forbiden. It is a way of cheating.

Seriously, Jahrakajin was the best guy you ever had on these forums. 

 

Edit:

He made a farewell post in the German Off-topic section

Oh stop teasing. Has Kevin (a) been promoted within WG, or (b) gone to somewhere else for more money/responsibility/a quieter life?

Moved on to a new job I believe but as that's all rather dull I suggest circulating some rather more interesting gossip ... I heard he's done a Ted Haggard.

The best moderator is no more a moderator.

 

Cool, can't wait for seeing more of the asklep's fine job at missing the point and generally failing at comprehending English.

 

Then again, even the bloody moderator's supervisor is a joke anyway, been waiting for him to get back at me for something since last July or so, with 2 reminders in between, so what's really to expect?

Google translated...(maybe)

 

Hi Guys!

 

I have been thinking for a very long time if this thread is worth it, but after several people have asked me to do so I will risk it. I do not want to spoil for a long time, so in a nutshell - I am no longer acting as a moderator. But wait a minute! There is moderator still under your name? But that's true (hopefully) soon changed and I'll have a normal forums rank and therefore have no access to moderators rights.

 

The reason for this is that I want to develop myself professionally and look for new challenges. Many thanks to Wargaming, the German Community Team, the other moderators and everyone here in the forum who helped me, as far as possible, to maintain a pleasant atmosphere.

 

I would also like to sincerely thank nice_to_heat_you. You were very helpful to me and Hedko when we started last year.:)

 

Farewell is probably not the right word because I will certainly write something here from time to time. I like the forum. In the game, I will continue as for fun kacknoob offered life-oriented Kevin try my team help to force the win!

 

Nobody is perfect and I am no exception. If I have made mistakes or wrong decisions in the past, I apologize. Although I have personal opinions on certain topics but have always tried to act according to the rules. How far I have succeeded, you can decide for yourself.

 

So, do not know what else to write. For questions about forum rules, please contact Hedko. I hope we will soon find a replacement for me the German community is the biggest (and best!) And needs a little more attention.

 

Kind regards,

 

Jahrakajin aka Kevin

​Oh I see, so only the master forum was good enough for his goodbyes. I didn't like the guy and his alright manners anyway.

Well, he was probably trying to avoid running into all the March hares on the English forum.

 

I haven't yet been able to ascertain what impact this will have on my game play. Time will tell... I mean, die Zeit wird es zeigen. ;)

I don't see many mods talking (and I have been in the forums for some time, I may say :D)

but this guy did pop around once In a while, and most of his posts were decent (I bet due to how moderators have to speak, maybe).

Kandly also lurks around here, should be more present in our best threads, whine posts!  /sarcasm

This is a kinda awkward Thread. 

As I don't really have the time right now I would just to add I am sorry I didn't honor the English speaking section with a "farewell post". In fact, I didn't intend to do one at all as I didn't want to draw much attention to myself. 

Well, for a starters, could we move this to Off Topic? Sorry but old habits don't go away that easily. 

If someone is -really- interested I will drop a message on later.

The German community's quite active, not a huge surprise if he was most active there. :)

It's "honour"........:trollface:

 

All the very best in whatever you're going to do. I'm sure you'll be an asset wherever you go, and thanks again for those moments of common sense, and humor you brought to the forum.

Still true, though.

Kevin was the only borderline helpful and understanding staffmember you had around here for a while. The other guys don't even deserve the title, because all they do is close threads. They do that quite well, because most threads that get reported get closed rather quickly (and I guess that even is the official job instruction you give them), but then you could simply call them thread closers. That's not moderating. Or just ONE of the tasks a mod has to fulfil.

 

Anyway... Kevin, thanks for hanging around with us. Must have been tough sometimes...
