Before You Contact Me
  • Purple Username: If you want to know why I'm purple and not teal like the other administrators, you can read about it here.
  • Weekends: I do not have standard weekends off. Instead, I take Thursday and Friday off.
  • Marketplace Reviews: I only review services that have been submitted to the marketplace for approval through the @imodbot account, alongside the rest of the marketplace staff who use this account. I do not review services outside of the initial approvals. Additionally, I do not discuss my reviews, the review process, or the marketplace with forum members.
  • Private Messages: I have nearly 6,000 conversations and 50,000+ messages in my inbox, so my responses may not always be prompt. Casual conversations will not be entertained. I also do not discuss forum processes or future updates one-on-one with members. If you receive a rejected report, do not contact me in an attempt to circumvent the reporting system (these messages will be ignored).
  • Marketplace Services: Due to my marketplace moderator position on the forum, I do not offer service recommendations.
  • Shit Lists: Whilst I pick up shit list threads occasionally, I do not handle shit list threads by request due to time constraints.
  • Business Inquires: Before I became a moderator, I stopped offering services here on the forum due to my own personal preferences. After becoming a moderator, I decided not to offer any services to better serve the community. Therefore, I do not offer services on Black Hat World or to Black Hat World members.
  • Signature Space: After becoming an administrator, I stopped renting out my signature space to members on the forum. Therefore, any requests to rent out my signature space will be denied.
  • Joint Ventures: I do not enter JVs with forum members (as you can guess, due to my administrative position on the forum), therefore all joint venture proposals will be rejected.
  • Support Requests: Contact me via PM. I do not offer support through Skype, Slack, Discord, etc.
  • Forum Suggestions: Please do not contact me with forum suggestions as it's not in my power to implement them. Instead, use the forum suggestions and feedback section.
  • Contacting Me Outside Of Black Hat World: Don't even think about it. I don't provide any identifying information to the members of the forum.
  • The Zwielicht Website: I had a website linked to my account, although I removed this link due to the number of members soft-selling me their services for what was clearly stated to be an incomplete website.
