Troll Wanted As you probably noticed, some active and helpful users disappeared this week, whereas a famous troll could do as he pleased for quite some time.

I can only conclude that being a troll pays out in the end and I've been training hard lately to be a good one... but guess I lack the natural talent.

So, as the post of troll is vacant, is anyone willing to give it a go? What would make you a good troll? What will your new troll identity be like?

Maybe you'd like to suggest someone as a new troll or give us some tips of what a troll needs to do to excel in the task.

All comments are welcome in this very relevant discussion

Sorry, but your avatar looks way to needy for a good troll.

@Neander

Your pic also doesn't work because a troll should never use a real pic of himself. You have to keep your identity secret.

"As a side note, the guys from italki support have surpassed themselves. In reply to my demand that Jerry's and Grzybek's profiles be re-activated, they told me that "we can only discuss users' status with the users themselves. We look forward to be contacted by these users to clarify on the matter"

They answered Susanne, they answered another person that asked them about the matter, but they didn't find the time to actually "discuss the user's matters with the user". I don't know what's stopping them, but it just seems they just aren't willing to discuss anything with anybody.

There‘s a difference between Wolfy and Jerry/Grzybek. Wolfy quit and won’t return. Jerry and Grzybek were banned but their spirits are still with us.  They haven’t entered the italkiless Nirwana yet.

@Allie - Yes, Jerry's gone as well. I can still see his profile, but his comments are invisible in the discussion forum.

As a side note, the guys from italki support have surpassed themselves. In reply to my demand that Jerry's and Grzybek's profiles be re-activated, they told me that "we can only discuss users' status with the users themselves.

Well, what can you expect from a company employing staff who is defeated by English verbs and prepositions?

I will neither confirm nor deny anything without my nostalgic lawyer present.
