Did I miss something.......


Hi,

Maybe this has been announced, in that case I missed it, but:

I just noticed that pixellany became a moderator!

pixellany: Congrats! Great to see you in this function.

I have asked myself before if moderating would be something you would like to do, turns out that it is :-)

I've always been a moderate sort of person---except when I go totally nuts....
We'll just have to see if this works out........
Thanks for the good thoughts.

When did it happen? I'm curious, because I only noticed it myself the other day.

Edit: But yes, congrats.

Congrats, man, and good luck!

I don't know how the guys manage it on a daily basis.

It happened recently. We checked him out, considered the options carefully, got him to pay the moderatorship fee and buy us all a beer (in person) and it was all a done deal.

You'll notice that my status as a "contributing member" was deleted when the moderator title was added. The way I took it was that I no longer had to send money.......now here's XavierP telling me I have to pay MORE.
Time to think this through again......has anyone seen my brain?

Cool.
Seems like a good choice.

Does this mean you're now forced to be friendly all the time?
