Wat since when do you post here? I thought you left after your nasty breakup with mike-or that’s what I was told at least.

Then as usual people just talked bullshit without knowing what they were saying. I had many reasons for leaving (which I even explained in detail :roll: ) and none of them had to do with Mike.

I happen to have time currently so I'm around... for now.

Would Brag have kept global mod if he had a spat with Mike?

Tbh I'm not sure when I got global mod, it was while I was away, I believe. I don't think it would've happened otherwise... all according to plan, of course. ;)

I haven't had a chance to abuse my mod powers, yet. It seems most of Silverdream's posts have already been deleted while I was away.

well it's good to have you back, with zarhu unable to do to do anything brikwars related do to his real life obligations, We've been in a medivo Drought for awhile now.

I don't remember why I made Brag a globmod, but if I know me, there's about a 99% chance it was because of a spat.

If I remember correctly you were arguing with each other and Brag left the forum. Then you thought it would be funny to make him a mod because you didn't think he'd ever be back.

Nah, it was mgb's birthday and he wanted admin powers for a day as a present. So Mike did that, except that these powers ended up in Brag's hands... and it's quite a loooong day compared to other ones.

That's not how it went Zupponn. There were arguments, yes, but I stuck around for a while after them, I was just pretty inactive 'cos I had no inspiration, time or motivation for BrikWars at the time, then I posted explaining I'd leave because of that, and Mike actually replied commenting he'd experienced all those things at some point in time himself.

It definitely wasn't a 'screw you guys, I'm going home' kinda thing. Since I've quit, I've gotten my diploma, started my first job... it was busy times indeed.

edit: just had a look, my last post before this return was on Sep 18, 2017, around the time that I started working, posting about how my pictures were down. I was gone for all this time due to being preoccupied with my new job. Then at the end of June I had time and noticed my pictures had come back online and started posting again.

All the argument stuff was waaayyy before that. It was August 2015 or something when I said I'd leave, then on May 2016, I 'came back', but I was pretty inactive and after starting 'Hold The Line' didn't finish it and basically had it on my table untouched until I came back now. During this time I was gone due to getting my diploma and starting my first job, as I said. Funnily enough, the itch to get back into it started as I was finally cleaning that table up. And then I looked at the forums and saw my pictures were back and Flickr was providing easy image hosting and sharing now, and here we are.

I've also played a strategy game (which one? :mystery: ) pretty religiously and started streaming on Twitch in January 2017. That sucked up most of my free time. I'm putting less time into that now though.

tl;dr: people are remembering everything wrong. Except Duerer, he actually remembered something even I didn't. xD

There are plenty of people I've gotten in spats with over the years, where I got fed up and flipped the desk and banned them on a regular basis. But not that many I'd turn around and give globmod to afterward.

Probably like 12 at most.
