Volunteering if needed

Sent: 24 Aug 2012 22:07
From: Bish
To: Alan Green

Hey, Alan.

If you guys need any more help with moderation or other utility work done, I have mucho free time these days.

I've been a moderator in two other forums over the past 10 years so I have previous experience.

Oh dear. I've been using the "too much free time" line myself lately - it sucks.

I have no opinion good or bad on his mod-ship worthiness.

IMHO, couldn't hurt - Bish is a genuinely nice guy who knows his way around a fretboard AND a drum kit, has lots of experience playing live, knows about recording techniques, and is of the same vintage as me, Alan Green, DH, and Ricochet....not much more than 12 months between us all I think.

Factor in the mods we've lost or who are temporarily (or otherwise) out of action.....Wes hasn't been here in ages, Elecktra's not here very often, Nils has disappeared, Tracker ditto (he changed his username to Mike, last I heard he was quite ill - hope he's OK.) Even Ricochet doesn't drop in as often as he used to.....

So I'd say, there's room for one more - and I couldn't think, offhand, of a better potential moderator. Maybe jamestoffee for the SSG, if David gets fed up or can't find the time....then again, I have unfinished business there.....

My vote's a resounding "yes!"

:D :D :D

Bish has certainly been a thoughtful community member and contributor over the years and I'd have no problems extending him the invitation to becoming a moderator. Vic's reasons are also good factors but I'd also like to add that taking a few new moderators would certainly liven up the place a bit!

Peace

Alan, would you notify him he's been promoted?

Thanks

And, assuming he accepts, someone should make a general notice to the community in the news section. Are you up for that as well, Alan? By the way, how'd the shows go this afternoon?

Peace

I'll let Bish know.

The shows went well, David. I'll write it all up. We're away in Italy for a few days now (back in the UK on the 7th) and I'll get down to writing stuff when we get back.

Hi, guys.

This is a funny thread to read about yourself.

I guess if it wasn't anything good I'd have never seen it.

Thank you for the votes of confidence.

BTW, the donuts were stale and my key does not work to the bathroom. :roll:

Doughnuts?

You're not eating the corn-plasters, are you?

Oh, and try next door - you're trying to get into the dungeon, where Nick keeps all the banned user-names.

I don't think anyone's gone out for doughnuts in ages. Been a while since we've had a new mod!

Welcome, sir! It's an honor to have you on boards.

Peace

I've learned a lot being a member of this awesome place.

Hope I can give back a little. :wink:
