New Moderators: Virgo and Grigoris

Post by Admin_PC » Tue Nov 07, 2017 3:51 am

Please join me in welcoming the new additions to the moderation team: Virgo and Grigoris.
We've been somewhat short-staffed for most of this year, so we're really happy to have the help.

Yeah - thanks for stepping up and doing what I'd imagine is mostly a thankless job. I also appreciate you guys for posting regularly too.

You stepping up is appreciated by everyone in DW.
Good luck you two !
Homage to you, blissful, virtuous and peaceful,
Enjoy the domain of the tranquil nirvana.

You overcome even the greatest of evils.

If I remember correctly you said the same thing the last time I was moderator, and yet, here you are, still trying to troll away.

It seems your fears are unfounded. ;)

I actually didn't mean for this to post. My posts need to be approved by a moderator and I sometimes post things just for them. Odd that it was approved :thinking: ? No, makes perfect sense.

Third time's that charm, right? Good luck and good hunting!

I've noticed a distinct change of tone and content in your posts, boda. Don't want for this to come across patronising (since your "cutting hypocrisy and BS off at the knees" kind of posts sometimes hit the mark like no other) but yeah, change can be good, letting bygones be bygone can be good and not falling into old patterns (for all of us) can be even better.

Welcome (back) Greg and Virgo!

My posts have required moderator approval for a very long time, if you’re suggesting that’s causal. Long before you started posting here again.

Wouldn't that at very best be a conflict of interest, and at worst leave DW entirely bereft of your enthusiastic self-appointed service, Jiminy Cricket?
