The Carlisle Elitists are a group of users dedicated to upholding the structure and safety of the Board, and protecting the persecuted from those that would seek out their destruction. They are determined to accomplish what the GameFAQs Moderators have failed to do so far: establish an orderly society based on the principles of liberty, justice, and equality. They stand in direct opposition to the Temple of Xod.
Here is a message from LordCarlisle to all members of The Carlisle Elitists, detailing their mission and ideals.
The Carlisle Elitists were founded on June 21, 2014, after the deletion of Rayquaza487's second 'Super Smash Bros. 4 GameFAQs Wiki' topic at the hands of Xodarhis and Hi Sophia. Xodarhis initially came into the first topic livid at the absence of his own personal page and immediately demanded Rayquaza make his page for him, threatening to report the thread if his orders were not followed. Rayquaza refused and told him 'you don't make friends through threats', attempting to give Xodarhis a crucial life lesson. Xod elected to completely ignore Rayquaza's advice and report the thread about the Smash Bros GameFAQs wiki posted on the Smash Bros board on GameFAQs for being off topic, which didn't make any goddamn sense then and makes just as little now. Taojaz complied with Xod's demand and created his page, albeit one full of nothing but trashtalking Xod. Tao was reported for this by Hi_Sophia, who had decided to aim her sights at the thread.
Sophia and Xod proceeded to report the thread a total of four times, but the mods were apparently asleep or something because for the first, and potentially last time in history they didn't decide to immediately shut down the thread without thinking through the situation or finding a better solution. The first topic made it to 500 without being shut down (it was later deleted by the mods over twelve hours after hitting 500). Rayquaza started up a second thread immediately afterwards, but the thread was doomed to a short life - it barely made it to 10 pages before being abruptly closed by the mods.
It was after this debacle and Xodarhis' subsequent gloating in Tao's Smash Interviews thread that LordCarlisle decided something had to be done. He began to quietly put together an elite core of trusted users from among those victimized by the Temple of Xod and the mods in order to fight back. The rest, as they say, is history.

Encounters with OppositionEdit
"The Temple has nothing to fear from the likes of you. If it is you who reigns, you should aim to better this land, yet you allow such filth to run free? We will not stand for this! If you will oppose us, if you will let your land be corrupted and destroyed by such off-topic dealings, we have no choice but to oppose you. Carlisle! May the divinity of Mega Minotauros spare your soul!" - Xodarhis, excerpt from this thread.
Future and Kidmf935 leadershipEdit
On August 23, 2014, long after the threat of Xod had ended and only Hi Sophia and NintendoIsBeast remained, the Carlisle Elitists wondered what to do next, as LordCarlisle had left until the release of the game. Yoshi2010 and VelocityHill nominated kidmf935, the second-in-command, to take charge of the Elitists until the Archlord's glorious return, to which he accepted. Yoshi2010 then went on to create an official lounge room. Meanwhile, other users were educated about the Carlisle Elitists, and interest was revived, proving that there may be hope yet.
KidMf himself left the boards on the 10th September, leaving Taojaz as the highest ranking Elitist.
