Author Topic: And our new Mods are...  (Read 3664 times)

As many of you are away, several weeks ago we put out the call that we were looking to appoint some new moderators to better-reflect the changing face of the board, and I received many nominations, with a lot of well-thought-out and informative commentary on why certain members would be an asset to the board.

After discussion and much careful consideration, the staff and I have decided that we shall be joined by three new moderators! While we were originally shooting only for two, we have gone ahead and re-appointed an old moderator who resigned from the team but has agreed to return, on the basis that they may not be so active as they once were, but we feel that their wisdom and insight are too valuable to lose. I hope that you will join me in wishing them all the very best of luck in their new responsibilities.

I am pleased to announce that our three new moderators are:

Vay
Wendy
Miles "Tails" Prower


All three of these members received multiple nominations from across the board and people put forward compelling arguments for their addition to the staff roster. They are long-term fixtures of the board who understand the forum, its members, and its rules, but are also not afraid to speak up to their friends and to challenge the status quo to ensure that the board is as good as it can be. Additionally, they provide a range of board coverage that we have been looking for, often active in areas of the board that are commonly overlooked. We did not make this decision lightly and I trust that you will respect our staff as they settle into their new responsibilities.

I would also like to give a shout-out to all of the other members who were either nominated by others or who threw their name into the ring:

JonnyJinx
Passacalgia
Henning
Dazzling 007
Felix Hawthorne
PokePony
Grim Noire
Couier Six
super brony
Princess Aria
KnightAlexa
Dark Lord Rarity
Not So Serious Nick
Northern Verve
Stranger
Beatles
SONICchaos

For now, let us celebrate our new staff! Good luck... with any fortune, you won't need too much of it!

I honestly wasn't anticipating being selected. But. I will serve this forum with the best of my powers.

Also congrats to Vay and Wendy. Both deserved it!

Let's keep moving EqF forward to a better and brighter future!

Suddenly new buttons everywhere, it scared the heck out of me while I was posting. I'm afraid to click anywhere, especially since I'm on my old laptop. Gonna figure that out... later.  :monster:

Congrats to Miles, I think he's a great choice! Very well deserved.
And Vay of course but we know that.


Thanks for having faith in me.

Heh, I was actually going to send Vay a PM encouraging her to get her position back.


Congratulations Wendy and Tails.  Make us proud!

Good luck to my replacements. :monster:

Vay: It's nice to see you back on the staff. Good to have you back, except I'm not there anymore. But don't fret, I am still fine. Hope things go well for you!

Wendy: You were actually one of those people I hoped would get the job. You're pretty level-headed, and from what I've seen of you, nice but isn't afraid to state her mind. Hope you enjoy!

Miles "Tails" Prower: How does it feel to be in my place now? :lol:
It's not really that much of a big change, to be honest. You just have a few responsibilities. I actually didn't expect you at all, but now that I think about it, you would be a great Mod.

Oh wow, people voted for me? I'm honored. Though I admit if I had won I likely would have declined, because responsibilities scare me. :P

One more thing. You probably don't need me anymore. We have much too many Mods now already for the size of this forum. I would gladly come back if I felt like it, and David/Derpy One was ok with it, but the way things are now, I'm sure you guys are alright without me. But if something happens like inactive Mods or something that feels like Moderation needs to strengthen again, then Derpy One, I am ok with coming back.

But for now, congratulations to Wendy and Tails, and welcome back to Vay. :)

Congrats to the new mods and not-so-new mod. I admittedly forgot about this, which is why I didn't throw in my opinion. But I'll say the choices were solid enough.

And thank you madman person who nominated me, I'm honored.

Vay's a chick?! O_O;;

Seriously though, I'm an thoroughly disappointed in this totalitarian decision to appoint this group of clowns. >:(

Seriously for real though, congrats guise, y'all deserve it!

Not sure if Vay really counts as a new mod, but congrats. I'm sure you'll all do well in your positions of power. I do believe I voted for one of the three who got the position, so that's pretty cool to see. (I could be wrong though, I didn't save my PM or anything.) Won't be naming any names though, so sorry if anyone was curious.

So is someone going to update the Admin and Moderator List thread, now that the staff-list module has stopped working?

If that's the case and the module is no longer working; maybe Derpy can create a new thread for it? :-\
