A couple of decisions I have reached. Well, me and others.

First and foremost, the ability to edit a post will not be abused anymore. In fact, no rule that me, Tridus and the rest of the Riptide Gaming team has set forth will be broken, unless an alien comet is speeding towards the Earth and the only way to save it is by editing someone's post. You get the idea. Even though me and Tridus have never caused any harm from editing posts (in fact, most of the time we were editing each other's posts), the risk of someone getting upset was always there, and kwerkey showed us that when he attempted to have some fun which was even less devious than what me and Tridus have both done in the past. So, we won't edit posts, even if it is meant as a joke. No one with the Moderator or Administrator tags should do that, and we'll set a good example and lay down the law.

The second thing, which Tridus has basically decided earlier today, is that the President of Riptide will no longer have Moderator powers. I am confirming that so everyone knows. It isn't just kwerkey; no future Riptide President will have Moderator abilities just because of the risk - the same risk me and Tridus went through when we jokingly edited posts. There are still definitely going to be some great perks to being President, especially when the offcial site launches. But having the hammer of authoritah is no longer going to be one of those said perks.

Opinions, comments and questions welcome, though this decision is final.
