I am proud to promote Andy (aka WeatherWitness) to the Global Moderator position here at the forums. Andy has clearly demonstrated many key aspects of a moderator and I know he will do an awesome job! :biggrin:

Congratulations, Andy!  If you need help learning the ropes as I know how overwhelming it was for me at first, please feel free to PM Martin or myself. B)

Hey Andy, I wanted to wish you a great job with being promoted!! :biggrin: I am sure that you will do fine, and as Patrick said, don't feel shy to consult him and or Martin for any help.
I've gone off on a journey to be a moderator at another forum, but this place will forever remain home for me~

No offense, but is this really needed? :dunno:

Martin and I are going to do some tweaking of the administration and labeling of our roles in the near future, so this addition was needed.  I was actually undertaking a ton of workload here for the past few months and needed some help.

Wow, that's really surprising. I would think that with a small amount of posts and minimal issues, running this forum would be pretty easy.

Thanks for all the kind words, everyone! :)  I will try to do my best to keep this forum running smoothly.

Trust me, Matt, from all that Patrick has described to me, and even a little from what I've seen, it's a lot more work than you think. ;)

Is it really necessary or appropriate for moderators to discuss moderator issues in public? :no:

Oh my gosh, this thread has been open for less than a day, and I can already see it going downhill. :rolleyes:  Eric, we'll no longer be posting any mod. issues in public.  Thank you for your concern.  I'm pretty sure that's not why this thread was created anyway.

But let me just say this.  For any of you who think we have too many admins or mods, let me tell you: there is a lot more work involved in running these forums than you may think, and with many of our present admins inactive, Martin felt that this was an important decision to be made.  Please do not focus too much on the number of admins/mods we have as much as the quality of the work being performed.  Thanks. :)

I have to agree with Andy here: as a global moderator on 2 of the 4 forums that I am on...I can tell you, that the job of a moderator is not necessarily not what meets the eye of standard members. Some people think all that we do is go around banning people, and that's not necessarily the case. Sometimes users just need someone to talk to, and that responsibility sometimes falls into our hands.

Also, Andy, I think you will do a great job as a moderator here, judging by the quality of your posts :)
