Cuz it's yours?

You know if there were no mods every one of your threads would be trolled like they are now. What kind of site would this be if that happened?

Its a means to an end, derp.
Its not meant as a permanent situation dude.
Furthermore, are you aware your post made no sense? Every one of my threads would be trolled like they are now??? That's a redundant statement!

So you're suggesting lack could just get some "scabs" to cover for the mods? I suppose it's possible but from what I can tell most of the mods have been doing what they have for quite some time and filling their shoes may be harder than you think. There would at the very least be a big lurch in the functionality of CC. Also, given the current state of affairs, I'm not sure how easy it would be to get people to set sail on a sinking ship. It would take a lot of propaganda that I doubt lack has the energy for.


Could you expand on who you think would be hard to replace? You are talking mods only, not admins right?
So we keep:
Lack
Andy
Achilles?

Actually: just reviewed the list now.... The Foundry team would take a huge, huge hit.. As would the Society of Cooks. I am pretty sure they are some of the most active, and have been here a lot longer than I have

Yeah I was thinking that anyone who was actually on the payroll would not even consider the idea for obvious reasons.
My thoughts were that no matter how qualified a replacement may be, there is generally a "settling in" period before productivity is restored to anywhere near full capacity. Some of these mods have been doing very specific jobs for long periods of time and that level of comfort I think takes time to replace.
I'm actually quite serious about this idea...

I don't see a correlation,what I referred to was like working at HR at a workplace, you don't have power per se but you still have juicy information on everyone like what people earn.

Pay me $10,000, and I'll gladly go on a week-long strike from CC, demanding a trollface.jpg smiley and shit like that.

That's not usually how it works...
You all are the ones who need to organize, you will be paid by your success. ;)

So your plan is to overthrow CC by hoping a whole bunch of other people do something? That's a fantastic idea! Right after I post a breast cancer awareness meme on Facebook and donate to Kony 2012 I'll join your amazing protest.
