Forum moderation changes...
Friday 21 August 2015 20:29:51 by Sebastien Lahtinen

Time flies really quickly these days and only a few months ago, we celebrated our 15th birthday. During our journey, we've been fortunate enough to be supported by a great community, and at the forefront of that community have been our moderators. The job of a moderator is never easy with everyone having their own views about how to run the community, but one has struck out in particularly over the years at being sensible, proportionate and respected by colleagues and users alike.

Many of you will have seen Don on the forums posting as 'Sadoldman' for most of this site's existence. He has been a key part of the thinkbroadband team since and we greatly appreciate all the time he's put in.

As his nickname suggests, Don had already retired before joining our moderating team and being one of its most active members. As many of you noticed a while ago, he has been posting less over the past year due to health reasons, so after over a decade of moderating, he has chosen to hand in his gavel and step down from the moderator role.

We are immensely thankful to Don for all the time he has put into making TBB the community it is today and wish him and his wife Joyce the best. We hope he will stay around and remind some of our more vibrant members how they can approach any subject in more appropriate ways.

Don has asked us to convey his appreciation to all our members ("the good, bad, and indifferent" to be exact) ;)

Moderating is never easy - no matter what you do, someone will step and flame you for whatever action you took.

Don - be well and be happy.

All the best Don. Happy retirement and try not to get under Joyce's feet too much, otherwise you might find she gets you another moderating job :-)
