I thought you called them "nutters."

You are fooling yourself, user. Nothing here is what it seems. ANet is not the plucky hero, Guru is not an evil empire, and this is not the grand arena.

I've been way too busy to play any game at all. What with starting the new job and going to my mom's wedding. TOday is the first night I've not just got home, ate, and passed out. And what am I doing with it? Sitting here developing a budgetting program for myself.

If you're making mad bank you don't have to budget, right?

That requires making mad bank though.

Maybe when the board game hits kickstarter it will be the game of the year and I will live off it forever?

I remember when no one was old and we had a 12 year old on staff.

Does that make me old?

Oh man...the 12 year old...I remember it was something Hunger Games related but it's going bother me that I can remember the username.

I started working with Guru almost 10 years ago. That...makes my head hurt.

MOCKINGJAY - I just remembered.

I don't remember how long I have officially been around for. Much less than you though. 4 years? I don't remember what apartment I was in when I started and that is how I judge time.

I'll be 70 this year which, I believe, makes me the eldest of the moderators.  I will say that the guru mods mostly acted more mature than our general members.

You might be. Just wait for Guild Wars 3. THEN we can start recruiting younglings.


And we can get all these threads about how GW3 doesn't play anything like GW2 and they have abandoned what made the game great! And the old fogies and come in and say "Son, I played the original GW when it first came out. You weren't even born then. Silly wipper snappers."

Haha, I'm 23. I was what, 19 when I became a mod? I can't believe it's been that long (and yes I know all of you people have been here 10x as long, nobody wanted a 12 year old mod on the original guru don't judge me).

Well, the advantage of the internet is that noone knows your age.

I guess you could say noone cares about the age of a moderator as long as they are mature enough to handle the position and do their job impartially. Or at least as impartially as possible.

This x1000.

We've had some very young mods before that did a better job than people twice their age. All depends on the person.

I am...much older than when I started. It's disconcerting.
