I like when he squashes annoying pests who post crap in the forums that shouldn't be there.

Keep up the good and difficult task, Octavian.

Today is "Worship the Banhammer Day," on which the banhammer gets rejuvenated for the next year's exhausting work by replenishing itself on the souls of the banned.

OCTAVIAN GRACIOUSLY TOOK CARE OF MY CAT, MR SNIFFLES, WHILE I WAS AWAY!!!

Spoiler (click to reveal)
I cannot vouch for the 100% accuracy of this story, nor necessarily owning a cat called "Mr Sniffles".

Octavian, is there ever a day you don't get dozens of geekmails from BGG'ers asking this or complaining about that?

Thanks for chipping away at the perpetual inbox to keep this wonderful community rolling forward.

All together! meeple

O is for the online help he gives us
C is for his constant hand a' the helm
T is for his terrific sense of fairness
A is for his super awesomeness
meeple
V is for his victorious board game playing
I is for the inbox that he slays
A is 'cause he is an abiding dude
N is for a nice day that he's due

Octavian is a great leader of the BGG forums!

And quite a dashingly handsome fellow, our Octavian, as seen here on official BGG Geekgold:



He just has to watch out for that Livia creature.

You keep our forums clean
you work hard and long
for lit-tle thanks and less mon-ey
but we sometimes
ree-meh-hem-ber
to stop our bick-er-ing
and just say "Thanks"

Evidently, a "new user" going under various pseudonyms such as "Fred Grubmingle" or "Samantha Tinkles" went on a little bit of tear, and fired off a number of posts across the forums that most might have found offensive. All were directed at Octavian. As near as I can tell, they've all been deleted, but Google cache seems to have picked up some.

hth,
jeff

I hear tales of Octavian battling sea serpents, climbing the worlds' highest peaks, and eating his weight in Godfather's Pizza.

Absurd.









Nobody can eat that much Godfather's Pizza and survive.
