Bored admin?

Post by gLiTcH_ »

I've seen the ranks of the developers and it is labeled as "Bored Admin" is this some kind of inside joke that the developers are bored? Or its a typo that has never been fixed til now.. no offense to anybody ok? :) It's just i've seen it for a very very long time and when i searched.. no topic has been brought up. :)

I have a couple of theories:
  • Bored is how "Board" is spelled in some backwater variant of English.
  • "Bored" refers to the many holes they have bored into their heads in order to push all the clever in.
  • It's an acronym.
  • It's a codeword to warn us of the lizard people that are even now controlling the internet.
  • It's an emoticon, representing an angry man wearing a tie that says RED on it.
  • It's DEROB backwards. That probably means something too.
  • :?: :?: :?:
  • Prophet.

The rest of the ranks here ought to be a bit of a clue as to that ;)

Oh and Pit, we're not lizards - we're aliens as my profile points out :P

I'd like the point out that pit had a special rank here back in the 2.0 dev days which was "IDIOT" :mrgreen:

I think the support team rank is a clue. It's not often we can get away with a few funny bits here. So enjoy them while you can. This should be a fun place to chill, but with the success of 2.0 behind us, it's kind of hard when people won't let us. This is the only place left we can still chill out and talk to you as phpBB, and look at it. It's a hard place to chill out at with all the 'is it done yet' stuff. It is not the same supportive environment that led to the success of 2.0. Infact I'd say it's rather dead for a simillar point in development status.
