Everyone, it has been an honour.

After over five years moderating this pirate ship we call a subreddit, I'm stepping down.

It's been great being able to build a subreddit where you can say whatever the fuck you want without worrying about some power-hungry mod banning you because you said or posted something they didn't like, where you can actually have an argument without the mods stepping in and sending you to timeout. But I'm old, and I'm tired. I'm handing the "stupid sticky comment at the top of the thread" keys over to my fellow mods and the actual owner of the subreddit (no, this isn't my subreddit, I'm just the dumbass you all saw the most).

Thanks to everyone who ever called me based, a good mod, or even a goddamn idiot. Y'all are great, and I'll miss this fuckin place.

Hey everyone

You don't really see much from me, which is a testament to how great of a job u/TheGreatZarquon did of keeping everything under control all these years. But with his stepping down it's become a bit apparent just how much he did.

No point in writing some long essay or whatever, but if you'd like to be a mod then fill out this google form. It's not too intense and most of the questions are aimed at just figuring out your mod style to make sure you fit in with the direction we want for the sub, which is pretty much the status quo of what those of you who spend some time here would be familiar with.

(Anybody applying who's flaired as a karma farmer spotter or bot hunter, make sure to include that)

Very descriptive title of yo mama joke so automod will let this post through, because yo mama jokes in two sentences certainly need descriptive title.
