Hi everyone!

I'd like to extend a very warm welcome to the newest member of the moderation team.

King Boonen has answered the call to volunteer some of his valuable time to help moderate the forum.

Let's give him a big welcome! :)

Oh Yeah. He'll be a great mod! Thanks King Boonen and (all the other mods of course) for taking on this time consuming, pay-less job.

For the forum's sake, I appreciate that a poster of his caliber volunteers, especially since he has previously (semi-?)rejected it. Congratulations to the mod team.
Goodbye, Tommeke; thank you for all you have given us!

Thanks guys, I'm hopeful that you'll hardly ever notice me doing anything, like a good referee.

Netserk, yeah I have said in the past I don't want to do it and to be honest I still kind of feel that way, but IDs point about stepping up to make sure the forum runs smoothly made me think that I should give it a go. I'm just going to treat it as part of contributing content.

Nice one KB. I'm looking forward to some of these going forward (with a wee translation for those of you not familiar with the Glasgow banter;)):

Poster A, just gonnae no dae that (Poster A, please stop before you force me to take some action).

Poster B, yer tea's oot (Poster B, this really is a final warning before I take serious action).

Poster C, bolt ya rocket (Poster C, has just been given a ban to cool off).

Poster D, has just got his jotters (Poster D, has been given a life ban).

ps, I know your not a native of the Weege;)

If I could just take care of the spam stuff I'd be more than happy to be a mod. But that's as much power as I would like to have over this place.

Good luck out there, KB, try not to take anything personally! (We'll love you anyway as a poster. :cool: )

Thanks folks, hopefully you all feel the same after a few weeks!

Ferryman, I'm saving the patter until people complain, then hopefully they won't have a clue what I'm saying and they'll just drop it :)

I have not seen "Taken". :)

I think KB is very level headed poster. I am pretty sure he will make a good mod. :geek: :lol:

Thanks for the "dark one" :cool:
