Adminned at 07 Jan 2011 03:03:15 UTC

Hello! Make Dev an admin!

My name is dev because I love developing. I started developing at 16 and I am now 27. I have had my expirience for being and admin and developer from Jagex Ltd (Runescape, FunOrb,, and Club Penguin. I have also been dev and admin of the well-known Mozilla Firefox Browser. I am very well-known on the internet irc channels and I would like to take time to make this community a better place.I was raised by a mom as a lawyer and a dad as a doctor and gratuated out of Georgia Tech in my early 20’s. I am a few months away from having a site developement degree and cannot wait, but is working hard. I guess what got me into the buisness was the coding. Once I saw them and learned their unique ways I got addicted and do it day and night now. I know the coding like C++, Php, Javascipt, ect. Anyway I have played your game before but it was in about 2005-2006 and I am going to get into the groove again. I hope you will consider this and I will be very active lately. Be sure to vote!

imperial As I said on IRC, I will be deferring to Josh.

against Don’t take this the wrong way, but admins have a certain level of control over the game and there is no way I can trust you’ll do a good job. If you really want to be an admin, play a few dynasties and then make a proposal then.

I’m idle, but I’d have to agree - I don’t recall noticing you in the dynastic histories. =P

imperial per Darth.  Our current admins have all been playing a lot longer than me, and I have faith that they understand game dynamics better than I do.  Your resume isn’t as important to me as your experience with BlogNomic.  Which at this point is less than mine, and I sure wouldn’t trust me to be an admin.

against You’ll find that being an admin of BlogNomic is an unglamorous role with very little actual responsibility.

against Admins are just responsible for the day-to-day activities here, and our actual tasks amount to resolving votable matters and adding/removing players, both of which are tasks better left to players who’ve been here a while and have a high familiarity with the rules.

If you’re interested in helping out with the under the hood stuff (being a ‘site’ admin rather than a ‘game’ admin), it’s probably best to contact the more tech-savvy administrators about this through unofficial means, but they too would probably be more comfortable trusting someone who had been around for one or two dynasties before applying.
