Please welcome our new moderators!

We have a handful of new moderators who have stepped up to help out. You should know all of them as they are active in the community. So please welcome bssc, SteveR, Brat, wildcat, & Tomcat98 to the mod team!

What, not Hocu$? Didn't he apply for board general?


Welcome folks, are moderators allowed to have a sense of humor or is it more of a TSA assignment?

Congratulations, guys. Could one of you take over the "Hi, I am..." Welcome Wagon so that I can ditch the ability to edit posts on that board?

Having spent the last 10 days with TSA in four different airports, I'd have to say that the answer depends on the customers posters.

It's a well known fact that Nords scared off 63.6% of all new users. We used him as a way to hold down the number of new users so we didn't overstrain our internet servers .

cool! not just anger but furious anger and not just vengeance but the great kind. oh, by the way Samuel voices God in a new audio version of the Bible...producers felt his deep, authoritative voice was perfect for the role of God..... Wildcat - I can sense that you have a deep authoritative god like voice in print..should go a long way in keeping order around here. I was going to wish you good luck, but you probably don't need it

Dang, I gotta look back at my old posts and see if I've been kissing up to the right folks. I hate it when the rulesers change.

Seriously--thanks for stepping up to maintain peace in the zoo.
