My suggestion for naming this thread "Welcome your new overlord masters: Mento and rmanthorp" was far better.

Welcome aboard @mento and@rmanthorp! May your days be filled with the $11890 my sister's roommate made last month with tiny classified ads.

Is that why you didn't include any words that could conceivably use another U? (I'll admit that joke was far wordier than it needed to be.)

I'm as surprised as you all.

But yes, I'm here to send polite but firm messages asking people to desist in their rambunctious behavior and chew bubblegum, and I'm all out of bubblegum. Do still have a roll of Mentos, but I suppose that goes without saying.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. In a way, it feels like I've always been here. I mean I have kinda always been around here, but I mean, like, as a mod. Is what I mean. I'm so glad I've become a lot more eloquent after this promotion.

@mento: Is there any truth to the rumour that all screenshots and concept art on the site will be replaced with MS Paint stick figures? I ask because there seems to be a conspiracy towards only using inferior Microsoft branded image tools, and concerns are bubbling towards if the site is in M$ pocket. >_> @zombiepie

Part of me is screaming no; part of me is screaming yes.

As the man behind the man, I expect special treatment. At least three youtube spam threads or "I heard Brad's leaving!" comments a month.

Go on, go for it. You deserve it!

@mento

If they were so sure I was bent they would have sent a mod. I don't know of anyone being promoted to mod status. Your file shows no bans. It takes...

Am I recycling the same joke as last time new mods were added? Pretty much.

I, for one, fear our new alien overlords.

Then you can rest well at night knowing there's absolutely no chance I'll ever become a moderator.

@turboman: Then we make MB the new General Manager of the wrestling thread.

I've been saying this for years, and yet everyone just calls me a racist.

@fobwashed:

Mentou. (Actually, that looks Japanese instead of British.)

#35 Posted by TurboMan (7558 posts) -

@marino: I see...

There's nothing as compelling as a heel GM though...

#36 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (5588 posts) -

The more the merrier. Welcome new moderator duders. Wait...

Moderator + Duder = Duderator

Welcome new Duderators!

#37 Edited by Mento (2558 posts) -

@brackynews: That would require an awful lot of work on my part, so almost certainly not. We'll have to suffice with the slightly less detailed screenshots we have already.

@omghisam: I've still got 9 commission blogs I haven't forgotten about, don't worry.

Congrats to Mento and rmanthorp!

I uh... honestly thought @mento was already a mod, but sure! I'm sure you'll keep being as awesome as ever. And @rmanthorp... that name doesn't sound very familiar... but okay! Maybe you had a different userpic I might recognize more? ha. Anyway, I hope you'll both now use your greater influence to help improve things here on Giant Bomb and make it an even better place for all kinds of gamers. :)

Dammit, we didn't fight a war to be re-conquered by the British again! This is tyranny! This is anti-my-free-speech! 'MURICA SHALL REMAIN!

Can we prove in this instance that correlation is causation? What other words and epithets have you used in proximity? Was your name in proximity? There may be larger issues afoot.

Congratulations to the new mods! I was all set to get on your case as part of my ongoing policy of sticking it to the man, but you seem like cool people. We can still riot though, right?
