New Moderators

We are pleased to announce that we have starting today, a new team of moderators. Now that they have access to the Moderators Forum, I think a few have been supprised as to how much goes on behind the scenes. So while they learn the ropes and get used to what needs doing, I ask that members please cut them a little slack. They are bound to make a few mistakes and it will be just that, "mistakes", so don't take offense if one is made.
So please welcome,
Hud3

Hope I didn't miss someone.
You will see the tag "Site Helper" under their name in their profile.

Thanks to a knowledgable group of people for helping out on the site.

Wheels are in motion!

But…but…but Alan, with your tutelage I’m sure their mistakes will take on that quaint and pleasing air of being less than “God-like”

I am sure we will enjoy theirs as much as we enjoy yours! (just kidding!)

Oh the pressure

I as one of the newbies would like to echo Wheels comments about what goes on behind the scenes. I spent last night wondering around in a mysterious 'backroom' section. I was very surprised at how much actually happens back there. It is busy little place. I suppose I didn't really think about it too much but then I would have been light anyway after looking.

If I do make a mistake I will be more than happy to grovel and take the appropriate beating as required.

Now back to the backroom for more lessons before I push the wrong button and turn the Internet off. After that I will be found lying prone the feet of the Masters (existing Mods) as any good apprentice should

Thanks very much for the nice Welcome all. I just hope I do a good job for the board and all the many great posters.

And I just upset my wife, apparently her new car 'is' more important than my new spinnaker, good golly how wrong can some people be.

So triple lashings for me by the looks. Not sure if that's a good thing or not
