*** New Moderator Introduction ***
« on: June 12, 2021, 09:25:58 AM »
All, please join me in welcoming Ncdan as a new moderator for the board. Ncdan has been a member for 10+ years and is a level headed guy that will make decisions and moderate in the best interest of the board.

The goal here has been the same since 1998. To have a "virtual campfire" place to discuss one of our favorite topics. 95% of the time, the board self moderates. But human nature sometimes warrants some moderation to keep things in line. Don't look for anything to change per se, but look for everything to continue forward and upward.

Welcome aboard, Dan.

Thanks,
Luap

I would like to express my thanks to Luap, and each and every member of the WG Forum for the opportunity to serve as a moderator, and yes I do take this as a position of service to the forum and its members.

I will only be observing the four rules that Luap has in place and encourage members to re-familiarize themselves with them occasionally.
Enough said about rules:)

I do have a couple requests of all members.
Letís all be mindful of our responses during a post or thread and keep them respectful and present ourselves as gentleman (or ladies) before we hit the ďpostĒ button.
If we really feel strongly about an issue with something thatís been posted by someone, take it outside, in others words, off the forum in a PM status.
Lastly, letís refrain from starting a thread that we know may become controversial and sensitive in nature that may encourage disagreements. 
I feel if we all recognize these simple observations there will be very little need for the interaction of a moderator, period.

Again let me sincerely thank everyone for the opportunity to serve such a great resource as the WG Forum and such a great and diverse group of members.
Iím offering my contact information in the event anyone needs to reach out, either forum related or personal in nature.
Again allow me to thank everyone for the opportunity to serve.

Excellent choice, Luap.  Congratulations, Danny.

You did and it is.  So I figured we should clear the air right now in front of everyone in order to avoid even the pretense of impropriety.

Now that we've gotten that cleared up- I'm looking forward to our next sit-down and can't wait to buy the next round!  Don't think I've ever broken bread with a global moderator!  Very cool.

thanks for stepping up Dan.  You're a better man than I...... but then again most men are.... and even some women!

Is it too early to complain about Dan yet?   :wink:

Or do we have to wait until he actually does something?   :undecided:

Thanks Canuck, Iím sure my background and experiences will assist me as a mod but you know, over the years Iíve got to know most of the folks that frequent the forum and Iíve never got the feeling that thereís a single person whom I wouldnít enjoy having as a guest with me and Wife.
Thanks for the moral support 👍
