Great stuff. Stepping up and everything.
And remember this is cycling, nobody expects clean modding.

Well Whoop-Dee-Doo. Look at the two new big shots in town. :rolleyes:






















I kid, I kid! :D

That's just my way of saying, Try to maintain a sense of humor...even when things get ugly.

Good luck to both of you. As long as you make decisions that I totally agree with, you will have my unconditional support. :)



Seriously though. Good luck, and thanks for taking the reins.

Is afrank going to just do prr section. Cos from what I've seen, with the exception of the occasional moronic ryo hazuki sexist/insulting/ otherwise offensice post, that place has been quite vanilla for a while now?

I could not have thought of someone better suited than Afrank, good choice.

I assume Wallace and Gromit will mod the Clininc (reason I don't know him/her very well) and Afrank the PRR?

I have him on ignore so he must be a bad poster, im guessing a sky apologist. Should be fun times in the clinic. I hope they mod Hog as well, to balance it out.

Every mods' wet dream is to mod only the PRR section. :p
Reality is that 99% of the work is in the Clinic.
A race that doesn't give an attacker the chance to finish it off alone is not a race anymore.

No doubt he'll have you on everybody's ignore list, soon.
Hope you enjoy your long overdue holiday.

If the tide turns a bit, there might be hope, at least for the prr section.
Might encourage a few of the sensible, more objective ex-posters to make a comeback.

I don't think Wallace and Gromit is bad. Respectful, makes good points sometimes, acknowledges Sky are suspicious, probably knows deep down sky are doping ;)

Its good to have someone from the Sky side on the mod team, even though I could not more strongly disagree with that viewpoint.

I actually did ask Dan if most of my posting being in the PRR might be a problem and he said that he didn't think it would be a problem and pointed out that other mods are more involved in the clinic. I have been reading the clinic more of late and as a mod plan to make more of a point to stay up to date on it's discussions. I might not always join in the discussions but I think I can still do a good job as a mod just reading them.

Anyways, thanks everyone! I'll do my very best to be a fair and level headed mod as possible. :)

Don't worry I must have around 20 posts overall in the Clinic (warnings excluded)....
Before becoming mod I had none.
