    Did You Notice the New Mods?

    Since there hasn't been much said about it yet, I figured I'd thank all the recent candidates in the recent Moderator Election, welcome the newly-elected forum Moderators and offer a big "thanks for your service" to the outgoing Mods.

    First, thanks to all the people who volunteered to run for the election. The list included a broad range of members, both new and old, and their willingness to step up and offer to help run the forum is greatly appreciated. To the volunteers who didn't get elected, don't let that stop you from running again in the future. We'd be glad to have you.

    Next, congrats to these folks for being elected to the Mod Squad:

    Bob Gibson

    Frank Fusco

    Stephen Bellinger

    Steve Southwood

    Cynthia White

    Frank is back for another tour of duty, so he already knows the ropes. The other four are new to the Moderatin' business, but they've got five experienced Mods to help show them the ropes.

    Lastly, a very big Thank You to these guys for their help as Mods over the past few years. These gents have been instrumental in guiding the forum during their tenure, and they will all be missed behind the scenes. (We'll still be seeing them around the forum, though.)

    Jim Delaney

    Larry Merlau

    Rob Keeble

    Tom Niemi

    Tod Evans

    These five guys will keep their Mod access for a few more days as the new crew gets a better feel for how things are done, but I think they've already started adjusting to "civilian" life again.

    Again, many thanks to all of you for helping to steer this forum and keep it running.

    To those that are leaving office, thank you very much, it has been a smooth ride from my side of the computer and I greatly appreciate all you did to make it that way. This site stayed civil, helpful, warm, insightful as well as my #1 go to place daily. Thank you.
    For the new ones, see above. Seriously, new mods, thanks for stepping up (and maybe stepping in it! ) I hope we all have a great time and do not create a bunch of situations/work for you. If I am ever a concern, a post or answer, feel free to pm me and tell me to straighten up! Congratulations.
    For those that ran and are not new mods, thanks for taking the chance and having the desire to help with this forum.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Thanks for all the past efforts. Having served in the past I know it is not a cake-walk. Congrats to those coming in and I'm sure all at FWW will give you their support and assist in self moderating as much as they can.

    I also have to take a minute and thank all those that voted for me. There are not a lot of women in the forum, and I'm very grateful for the vote of confidence. This is a wonderful place, and I'll do whatever I can to fulfill my moderator duties with dedication, common sense, integrity and grace.

    This is a wonderful forum. I don't get to the computer every day...However, every day I get to it, I get to FWW.

    I have sampled a few other forums. I cannot believe how bad some of them are. Our code and our moderators are what keep FWW such a great place to visit. I might get answers to questions other places, but why go there? I get my answers from pleasant people HERE.

    Thank you all outgoing mods. Thank you for those who volunteered this time. And thank you new mods...may your road be smooth and fun.


    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
