Moderator resignation
« on: January 16, 2012, 09:40:52 AM »
I am sorry to reveal that MWC moderator 510bhan (Sio) has decided to resign from her position. She has asked me to mention that when she took on this role - which can certainly be a demanding one at times - it was on the basis that it would be for one year only, and that period has elapsed now.

I am very sorry to see Sio go, but of course being a moderator is not a life-time commitment! I should like to pay tribute to all the good work she has done around the forum over the last year. I very much hope she will continue as an active member of the forum.

We are considering whether to appoint another mod to replace Sio. More news will be posted as soon as we have any.

Nick  :)

Continue, blimey Nick, haven't you seen the tab she's running up in the bar. :o ::) She'll be legless by 4pm.  ;D

Psst, Sio I didn't tell him you whipped his card on the way out the door. Party hearty Marty. >:D

Thanks for all the time you've volunteered for the community, Sio!  Hope this doesn't mean we'll be seeing less of you . . .

Thanks for the work behind the scenes.

Does this mean you'll have even more time to further inflate your already impressive post count?
