Wisest Staff Member
Sharing wisdom is merely part of the job.
This thread's purpose is to decide who is the wisest staff member on MangaHelpers. The staff member's widsom should be visible in the way they post by having deep insight and knowledge of different aspects and issues, providing logical reasoning and approach towards a certain problem or situation.

I nominate Saladesu.
I rarely see a mod as cool headed, thoughtful and diplomatic as him/her.
I would like to nominate xi0. Mainly because he's like a walking encyclopedia (although I've never met him IRL, so he might just be using wikipedia.
I would also like to nominate Akainu. Mainly because I find his arguments in the General World Topics forum to be convincing even if I don't always agree with em.
Last but not least, Koen, for his insatiable thirst for politics (and his very deep knowledge of it) despite living in a country with no goverment.

I'd like to nominate Gary as well, along with eni. Having have talked to them both, both in public and private, they have shown to be pretty wise and have knowledge on stuff (though with eni, it might be due to her age ). I've certainly gained good insights thanks to them.
Last nomination would be koen. koen doesn't always speak clearly, but when he does he speaks well. Most of the time anyway.
Hm, need to post for the other two later but I definitely have to....
... nominate Osso!
Dear people, you barely know this guy but believe me, MH wouldn't stand online right now without him. He's our beloved sysadmin: running the server, programming the whole front page interface and being always there for any kind of tech support. It is unbelievable what this guy knows out of his head to keep the site running. No bug can hide from Osso! Amen.
I will throw my support in for the Bear Man, xi0. He is more than a man, he's also a bear. As such he does not only possess the wisdom capacity of men, but also that of bears. After winters he is especially wise, as all the wisdom he has been storing up while hibernating is unleashed into the world, creating a wave of apifinies. When you need someone to make sense of something, the Gar Bear is the man to talk to. Yes, this is a serious post, he truly is wise despite his efforts to hide it.
Finally, I can name xi0. Along with him Akainu and Koen are my other nominations.
I'd like to nominate Koen and Akainu; I've only spoken to Koen briefly but he had great insight into Politics and the World in general and seemed to know alot about where I'm from(not very surprising since his country colonised us but still).
Secondly Akainu I've known and seen rise from one of us into one of them and having discussed and read his discussions with other OP members through the times, I knew it wouldn't be too long before the admins recognised his ability to turn-phrase and construct a solid argument.

I'm going to give a special mention to Imitorar who used to mod the OP section way back when and was one of the wisest members and contributors to that section I had ever seen. I always looked forward to reading his posts; great insight.
I'd like to nominate phio, thorny, and bene. All have such interesting, thoughtful perspectives on modding and site business.
eni is the wisest staff member for me.
3 votes.... hmm... i vote 3 times for everyone!
there's just no way I could choose only 3.... sighs. They're all so wise, Yoda from Star Wars doesn't even come close!
1. Hegemon - I got walled by him. Hard. In the politics section. Course, I decided to not go back, but that's not the point, is it?
2. Roflcopt3r - Same as the one above.
3. Benelori. - Knows his shizz.
I don't know many staff members that well nor do I chat to many of them on a regular basis for me to recognise the "wisest" of them all. So thus, I can only nominate one and that's Kaiten. From past experiences, I feel that his great at problem solving, he doesn't make any rational decisions that could lead to other issues occuring, very friendly in his manners/approaches and generally great at his job on MH. Helps and advises members in the best way possible and usually resolves matters very quickly. So cheers to Kait. =D
