Time for a Change of Moderators? (V2.0)

Gents
I have removed the Time for a Change of Moderators? thread as it got a bit derailed – this is the relaunch.

Myself and Worried Man have a lot less time to give to the forum than we used to .
This has left Woof carrying much of the Mod burden for the last few months.
I have been a Mod here for 4 years( originally with Liam & FXH) and i am willing to stand down ...who will take my place ? I can think of a few names.

So…..there is a need for a couple of people to take over from AC & WM.




If the right people take it on I am also happy to stand down, or just be in the background, I’m easy either way. There isn’t really a job description so please PM me if there’s anything you want to know.

Re: Time for a Change of Moderators? (V2.0)

Moderating is usually very easygoing and can be rewarding.  Like anything, there are times where it's a pain.  But with a good team in place each individual moderator doesn't need to bear the brunt of the responsibility and makes it that much easier.  I've moderated for 3 years now, and I must say it's been an interesting tenure.  Plus being able to read all member PMs is really enlightening. 


Just kidding, we can't do that.  But you are sometimes privy to behind-the-scenes drama which can be somewhat entertaining.

Re: Time for a Change of Moderators? (V2.0)

Public Service Announcement ....

A change of moderators has been enacted, Armchaired and Worried Man have elected to stand down.

FNB has drawn his virtual sword and has dubbed Berkeley Breathes as a new moderator.

Thanks to AC and WM for their loyal service and welcome to BB ...... thanks for coming forward mate!

I will still be around sweeping up spam etc but Berkeley will be your lead man, he has some good ideas for the forum and will bring a Breathes of fresh air ... arf arf.

Thanks for your support gents.

Re: Time for a Change of Moderators? (V2.0)

Thanks again Woof, WM, AC, and FNB for doing me the honor. I'm really happy to have this opportunity to strengthen the community here at TI and will use my powers for good, not evil! wink

Thanks for the kind words Woof and AC... And indeed I'm following in great footsteps...

Berk's an excellent choice. Kudos to Worried and Armchaired for the outstanding legacy.

Agreed!

Although I doubt many British posters will be referring to BB as Berk as, in the UK, Berk is rhyming slang for hoho.

There's a few Berks on this forum for sure.

Re: Time for a Change of Moderators? (V2.0)

HAHA.  Thanks for accepting the role, Berkeley.  I'll be around as a regular old forum member once again, but feel free to ask me if you need any assistance with the backstage mechanisms. 

It was a fun tenure as moderator and I'm still honored that I was asked.

Re: Time for a Change of Moderators? (V2.0)

One drawback of no longer moderating is not being able to delete what you just posted.  Anyway... what time will you be home tonight?

I'm just an innocent messenger here Kingy...

You know I was so fresh-faced and naive when I first came on here and had never heard of any of these words?!?!?

Don't think I like this kind of potty mouth any more than you do Sir...

We can only hope The Hitman becomes more fragrant post no more moderatererereror.... in his defence..he was at his lowest point with the forum when I spoke with him..and he just let rip.. *pinches nose*...

I have had some feedback from members - some good, and some not so good, but mainly good. Thanks for all of it.

Could the forum ban the use of ridiculous animated avatars that crept in under some of the old regime?

I don't know if thats possible, I haven't noticed anyone using one in a long time.

I have.. (rolls eyes)
