Congratulations to Andy Vance, Your New (Half-Naked) Site Moderator

As the community here continues to grow, so does the need for great site moderators. Earlier today, AndyVance was deputized and he'll now join the other moderators, watching over your comments like nervous parents.

As such, he'll earn immediate access to the Moderator's Lounge, which is kind of like the Premium Lounge, but is catered by White Castle instead of The Refectory.

Congrats Andy. Is this the official photo of Andy becoming a moderator?

Yay!  Congrats.  I'm glad he got a committable offer!  And he didn't even have to camp!

So Andy Vance is seen half naked and later that day he becomes a mod. Hmmmm must've been impressive. Well done sir.

Let's just say that I tried to pass this off as my application photo, and apparently at least one member of the staff watches cable television and called my bluff (I'm not naming names, but he hails from The City of Kings and has a barely legal obsession with a long-dead president).

Well, what you should have done is put out an announcement yesterday at 4 saying that you had an announcement to make at 10 last night. You should read up on Uncle 9er's handbook on how to do this. This would've gotten everyone's attention.

If you jiggle your monitor, does that make a jiggly gif?

Congrats Andy, would get you something from white castle, but I have never been to a white castle, is that about the same thing as a waffle house? I have never been to an IHOP either. Went to a McDonalds once, but got sick moments after I ate there.

So, Andy had to get naked for who? Just to become a moderator? Do not know what is going on here. 

Anyway, good luck with your new duties and one more question. Will we be subjected to naked moderating?

Let me just say that, having been trained in the arts of moderation by the legendary masters Bill Brasky and Jack Handy, I have chosen the Soldering Iron of Justice as my particular implement of office. Happy commenting :)

Congrats Andy. Plz don't ban me.  

Anyhow am I the only one that thinks white castle is nasty. Gross!

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

I've always hated white castle (which ironically was known back in the day for being exquisitely clean), until a road trip back to Columbus when I tried their chicken and waffles sandwich. Good Decent stuff.

I once left some White Castle in my car overnight. Haven't ate it since. That smell was not of this world. 

Thankfully, Cane's caters into the premium lounge from time to time. That stuff is worth every helmet sticker.

Sad confession of the day: once had fifteen (15!) White Castles on the way home from a Huey Lewis concert (Huey Lewis!). My mom finally asked me about half-way through the following day: "What the hell is wrong with you?"

Tough to explain, even tougher to remember. I'm sure that made it easier for the folks to send me on my way after graduation.

We had a rule back in college that anyone that had White Castle leftover may not put it in the refrigerator.  The fridge all the other food in there would stink for a week.

I'd pass on it now if I were you, Andy. You can't moderate well when you're constantly headed to the bathroom with a bad case of the White Castle runs.

But seriously, congrats buddy. Well deserved!
