    Talking How do I become THE administrator?

    Hey guys,

    So I'm just wondering...is there a way to have just as much control over these forums as Brad? The best solution (my last resort, because it's unethical) I can come up with is to hack into the MySQL database, delete his profile then change my role to "Owner."

    LOL, i'm just kidding. If I am trolling, please tell me.

    I think Joe would delete you pretty quickly anyways. What would be the point?

    Just go to second hand shop, buy a crappy, slow server for $11, install forum software and make yourself Admin.

    Then wait a few years and Jutiper Media will buy you and plaster adverts and hotlinks in every available pixel of screenspace.

    Yay web 2.0!

    And btw, Brad's password is "swordfish"

    I'd love to put that into the context of another post of you, however that is most probably against the AUP.

    Why not increase your post count? You could then get a custom title for yourself!

    Apache doesn't even cost $11, and you can do the whole MySQL thing and rule your own localhost world.

    You need to defeat the old administrator using stealth and a light sabre.

    Luckily enough we have our own badger here
    Delete it. They just clutter threads anyway.

    Have you tried the combo:

    You can always kidnap either me or Brad, and torture us until we divulge our login info. But be forewarned, both of us have been conditioned to withstand considerable torture.

    Oops, I forgot about Martin Liss. I'll have to deal with him too.

    BTW Joe: it won't be an either-or, I'll deal with all three of you at once.

    Maybe I'll hire Chuck Norriz to do the job.

    I can't wait until I'm the boss!

    We can.
    I put it to you, Sir, that you're clearly wrong! Our ability to wait until Moonman becomes the boss is predicated by his ability to become the boss. Since the probability of the latter condition being satisfied is tending toward zero as this thread progresses, the former can never become true.
