I now need to change my behavior. When I was a regular user, I saw no problem in downrating. That's now something I see as odd - I would definitely expect a staff member to support a user that deserves it, but not to negatively judge a user that, from his own opinion, deserve it as well. So while I may continue to support you by giving you positive ratings, I will stop giving negative ratings.
I also need to stay in my own role, as a news editor. I'm not a moderator, and I have little knowledge about the system and so on. So I won't ban/suspend/warn/close thread/and so on. I'll post news. That's already a cool job, believe me [smile]. In fact, I don't want to act as a moderator, so I won't do it (unless it becomes one of my task; but as of today this is not what I want). The current mods do their job very very well, keeping the noise ratio very low.
I also wonder how I can make up some kind of Rejected News (not news that haven't been approved for whatever reason, but news that wouldn't be featured as gamedev.net news, mostly because they are not targeted to hobbyist game programmers).
Last thing I want, 10 million EUR. If you can help, please tell me [smile]
