Thanks to the moderators


Due to a recent misposting of mine (which seems to have disappeared, oddly ehough ), I have had occasion to consider how much our poor moderators have to put up with by way of attitude, inexperience, and just plain pig-headedness from the general public.

So, I thought I'd take this opportunity to thank them all for the fine job they're doing. LQ is a great place, and I'd hate to think of what it would be like without their efforts!

Good Job, y'all!

Edit:
I thought I HAD started this in General! Sorry!

I agree, the moderaters here are the best, but I think you will see one of them show up to move this thread to General very shortly, as it isn't "linux" related and probably should have been started there in the first place.

I agree, the moderators have a lot to put up with and we should all bow down and thank them for doing such a wonderful job. Hang on, I mean thanks

Actually, against all predictions, I'm moving this to Website Suggestions and Feedback forum. Because this seems to me to be Feedback on the LQ Website.

I'd like to take the time to thank the moderators too. A great group that really help make LQ what it is.

So when can I expect a raise?

Actually, I give thanks to Jeremy for providing the best Linux resource site on the net!

Misposted again! I'm batting a thousand! At least I can console myself with being smart enough to have found the post I thought had disappeared!

yep. THANKS GUYS! I would buy you all a chocolate bar- but they might get all sticky and gross in the mail.

On that thought- does LQ get random things donated to them? I know from experience that 'charity like' organisations get a lot of wierd stuff donated to them- I know penguin computing and others have donated useful stuff- but what is the wierdest thing donated to LQ, jeremy?

I can't recall getting anything "weird", really. If we do get something, I'll update this thread though

To the moderators, Jeremy has promised a 100% raise to all the mods. So take your current moderator pay and multiply it by 2.

(The mods are volunteers right?? , if not...Sorry Jeremy. )

I second the thanks to Jeremy on behalf of all LQ members, especially s..

Our pay is the warm fuzzy feeling we get from rampaging about the board making you all quiver and quake So that's now doubled.

Yup, you mods have been really helpful. And jeremy, you have really created the BEST linux forum on the web.
Are you mods at all overworked (not implying that jeremy's a slave driver )? I am sure I would get really mad at some threads and posts and give really nasty replies if I were a mod .
Thanks!
