Is this the beginning of a new era in the Wesnoth.org forums?

shadowmaster is going on vacation to France, and we have to have an active admin for that time.

Er... what does the "Toast" in the title refer to?

Oh, and congratulations Gambit... or condolences, I'm not sure....

edit : :doh: I just realized what day it is. Much better than banning Noy.

edit2 : I suspect MrKuchen is actually Shadowmaster.

Hard to say...remember, we thought you were shadowmaster for a minute there. :wink:
Though, it does seem kind of suspicious that there's suddenly a new "unit type" in the Wesnoth Forums: New Administrators. This never existed before.

Ironically, I was suspicious this would be a prank against me and looked into it. MrKuchen's IP isn't from Chile. :hmm:

I was wondering that too....

And I still can't figure out what all this has to do with toast....

Not toast as in "cheese on toast", but toast as in involving drinks.
When a person celebrates by making a toast, they raise their drink, say something, sometimes the other people say something after them, and they all drink whatever's in their cups.

I think this is a pun on Star Wars as well by the way... Episode IV: A New Hope :|


Anyway, congratulations on your lordship Gambit! *bows, falls down the staircase and disappears out of sight, into the pool of lurking*

After what they did in TVTropes, I still suspect an April 1st prank.
I'm not really around any more, but you can find me in TvTropes.

Hmm... something smell fishy here... :hmm:
Shadowmaster will never let someone take his position...
But Gambit told me that shadowmaster did that before April 1st...
So... yeah.. I'm really confused :doh:
Is this a joke or not :?:

I'm somewhat afraid to ask, but... what did they do? I can't see anything wrong.

We'll miss you shadowmaster! Pretty ironic how I had just posted this just prior to finding out. And yes, this appears to be real, people.

Thanks guys.

And okay MCP, but whatever it is, it probably won't get done until Monday. Tomorrow I'm going to start fixing all the little nags I've had with phpBB for a while. And if there's any time left on Sunday I want to address the serious lack of scrolling marquees around here.

edit: Oh. It looks like shadowmaster will be able to handle it.
