Another thanks to MarieIG and simplegirl, and to all the Mods and admins on this site. I am spoiled by all the friendly chatter, about everything under the sun. When things get a little off the rails, there is usually a gentle push to get back on track. Sometimes Porky shows up (I think I have been guilty once or twice).

But Porky just reminds us that we are here to have a civil conversation about "things". Whatever those things are.

Me too but usually not for snarkiness; just political commentary here and there and we all know how that will end if it persists.

Thanks to all the mods, current and former. I canít calculate the value I have received from this entirely FREE forum. For example, I assumed Iíd need to keep swinging until 59.5, yet I learned about the Rule of 55 right here, allowing DW and me to both dial back the madness while we were still 54. That was a priceless life hack! And itís just fun to participate on a moderated forum. Thanks.

Iím not sure what the pay is for this position but whatever it is it isnít enough. [emoji23]
Iím always amazed at how on top of things the moderators are on this site. I canít get away with anything!

Iím sure both of you will do a great job.

Congratulations and good luck! I believe you now have the authority to sentence members to the Cone Of Silence.

Highly qualified simple gal and MarieIG. I've always liked your posts. Are you our boss as well?

Congrats!

Congratulations to the new Moderators..!

I was a little confused at first as I thought MariegIG was already a moderator and I am (almost) positive I saw the moderator icon next to MarieIG's name on the ER iphone app days before the announcement.

In any case, congratulations to you both!

New mods go through moderator boot camp before they get the actual moderator badge under their name. MarieIG and simple girl just graduated yesterday with flying colors!

No moderator icon these days, just the word ďModeratorĒ under their name. We decided to drop the jackboots icon as it gave the wrong impression
