Welcome to new moderators

We have drafted three, count them three, new moderators: Khan, BestWifeEver and Ziggy. The three could not be more different, yet all have shown themselves to be good contributors, sensible and not inclined to incite or participate in board wars.

Now be nice until they have learned to use their weapons.

OK, Martha, so what is the difference between a "Moderator" as the new threesome are titled, and an "Administrator," which is your status?

You'll have to do what Martha did - use part of your mod bonus check to buy your own.

I heard the difference between a Mod and an Adminstrator is the Administrator's get the 'special pens.'
