Well yeah, Steve had so many health problems pre- serum that a small mob of angry 5th graders could’ve sent him to the hospital.
@Scar, I also feel like Steve should take the majority ✊🏻
The tragedy was that, for whatever ridiculous reason, they choreographed that digital fight in a way that made Cap look like an amateur idiot. At one point he just threw his shield into the smoke screen without any chance of hitting Bruce. Made no sense.
Not to mention, rather than a reasonable finishing move, they somehow had Bats hang Cap from a street lamp? Gimme a break 😂
@BashengaTheFirst , I saw your Death Battle discussion and almost relived my rage quit from the Cap vs Bats battle 🤣🤣🤣
I have disagreed with so many Death Battles that it’s almost infuriating 😂 like Max said, it always feels like they omit things or leave deal- sealing details out to favor certain combatants.
@Blais W 🤣🤣
I have a few thoughts on this, but I’m gonna try to keep it brief ✊🏻
I can support either direction, although I am leaning towards adding, perhaps, one more mod. At least to my way of thinking, it’s this:
1) First and foremost, our current trifecta (Gen, Gabri and Max) are fantastic and do an excellent job of maintaining everything. There is no question; they manage beautifully.
2) So that begs the question: do we NEED another mod? No. We don’t NEED another mod.
HOWEVER, it does seem to me that serving as a mod is a labor of love. It’s not a job where you are paid for completion. Sticking with it is out of the care and admiration for the family, which is quite beautiful. What that also means, is that burnout or fatigue is more likely to set in and is very real, especially when they have lives outside of the wiki AND have to manage a position that they aren’t compensated for in a more traditional way.
3) Because of that, another active mod could help share the load 👍🏻 (Samwise voice) That would make it more manageable for all the mods by reducing the work/demand and helping prevent burnout. Work/life maintenance and balance, if you will. On top of that, a little schedule overlap is good and easier between 4, as opposed to 3.
4) If we decided to elect a new mod to help Gen, Gabri and Max manage the responsibility and feel more comfortable, we should select a mod based on a set of criteria that we collectively determine. Are there certain times that we need more coverage? Are there certain skills we are looking for? Just stuff like that. Then we decide on who has that “goodness of fit” and can meet our needs.
5) All that to say: I’m approaching this more from the standpoint of “How can we help Gen, Gabri and Max keep their commitment as mods both fair and balanced, without feeling chained to it and burned out?” The fact that Max was very candid about his support on the idea is testament that one more mod just might do the trick.
@Gen, @Slyme quin and others, IF we decide to install another mod pillar, y’all’s confidence in me is awesome and much appreciated 😂✊🏻 I’d certainly throw my hat in the ring IF we decide that’s what we want to do.
We have so many great family members who could do the job admirably, so I’m more than confident that we could get the mods the help they need. For now, let’s not get the cart before the horse 😂
It is funny though 😂
Oh they’ve been fine, some good, some don’t care, the usual 😂 You know, I actually don’t ever get many pregnant students. I think high school/ middle school teachers see that more than I do.
By the time they get to me at the university, they’re either not having kids for a while or they’ve already had them in high school 🤣
@BashengaTheFirst , much appreciated, my old friend 😌
It’s manageable and, so far, I’ve dodged COVID. So let’s see how long my luck holds 😂 I’m cautious though, so I think I’ll be alright. Teaching with a mask on, it’s a whole new experience 🤣
@Dare00Devil , same. I prefer teaching entirely f2f, so when things get back to normal, I’ll be in my element again 😎
@Dare00Devil , oof! Do you like the online format, at least?
I know some people freakin love it and others HATE it 😂
@Faze7023 , hey bud 😎
I’m doing well ✊🏻 Similar to Gabri, it’s been BONKERS around here, but I’m still on every day 😜 I’m not going anywhere.
Dude, I’m doing modified f2f, which basically means that, because I have no underlying health conditions, I HAVE to teach f2f while also accommodating virtual students simultaneously. My classes have about 10 students live and 15 on Zoom, but I’m teaching both simultaneously.
It’s double the work to prep for both versions, so it’s kinda like I’m teaching 10 classes instead of 5 😅😂
Wow, the OT has gone through a lot in the last few hours 🤣🤣 complaints, apologies, drama...
These first 4 weeks of the semester have been BONKERS. I’ve been on the wiki every day, but haven’t had as much time to dig into discussions, so now that things are settling down, it’s nice to scroll through the off topic CASUALLY instead of on a time crunch 🤣✊🏻
@Slyme quin , I’m sorry to hear that, bud. We are always here for you in whatever capacity you need and I hope that you are able to find some peace amidst all of this. It will take time, but in time.
Yup, so it’s reasonable to say that they might actually null each others’ grand abilities 😂 Oh yeah, Sepulchre didn’t show up till the 90’s, I think.
My only argument against that is that real time differential doesn’t equate to in-lore time, BUT because of BM’s considerably higher show frequency, it’s harder for me to justify Jillian 🤣
I still feel like Jillian would take Mamba in a near draw set of rounds, but I have no hard evidence to back that at all 😌
^ I’m wondering the same thing 🤔 that’s why I feel like, if darkforce affects darkforce, then Jillian’s intangibility and BM’s hypnosis are handicapped.
@Eon44yy , sorry for the delay, bud! Just got out of work!
This is a cool match 😜✊🏻 I’m gonna go with Sepulchre, but this is a tough one.
I’ll start by saying that @Dr. Nice has a really good point with the hypnosis ability, so that’s what makes it difficult for me, otherwise I’d say Jillian would definitely win 🤔
I love Sepulchre, so I’m gonna try to avoid too much bias, here 🤣 While Black Mamba can do something similar, she still remains tangible to an extent, whereas Jillian can activate her “shadow form” and become entirely intangible (excluding certain mystic forces), but still has very real darkforce attacks that she can use while in this form.
Jillian was also a Secret Defender with Druid (and in a weird relationship) but she became a professional in the occult, so while she has her Darkforce powers, she’s also well versed in mysticism and may very well have a way to combat hypnosis, ESPECIALLY since it’s coming from a source that she, herself, has mastered. Using dark force to hypnotize darkforce may not hold water for BM, although the same could be said for using darkforce to combat darkforce intangibility against Jillian 😂
Although Mamba has more comic showings, I don’t know that she has more experience than Jillian because Jillian, post SD, has essentially been a mercenary who’s been actively using her powers, arguably just as much. She isn’t a dormant character, at least by more standard, so I actually believe she has more experience than BM.
I’ll say Sepulchre 6/10, but it’s freakin close. I’m leaning on her experience and intangibility, but BM’s hypnosis has me thinking 👍🏻
@Lagvaldemag , I do, but we don’t talk every day or anything because neither of us check Discord unless someone tells us too 🤣
I’ll send a message his way though 👍🏻
@Blais W 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
That’s EXACTLY why y’all should come visit and I’ll treat you to Texas Roadhouse 😂✊🏻
Post Covid, obviously
