    Welcome minstrel, the newest member of the moderator team

    Discussion in 'Announcements' started by Daniel, May 22, 2013.

    We have a new member of the WritingForums.org Staff. minstrel will fill the newly vacant moderator position, and will act as our U.S. moderator that we've needed for some time. I know minstrel will be a good fit for both the moderator team and our writing community.

    Please welcome him to the WritingForums.org team.

    Thanks, guys, and especially Daniel. I'm still getting my feet wet in this - it turns out there's a fair bit to learn.

    I feel a bit like a guy who's lived in a small town all his life and is friends with everybody, then he suddenly gets elected sheriff. Now he has to start issuing traffic tickets to his buddies. I'll try to be as fair as I can be, and I'm sure you guys are going to school me in what fairness actually is. If I screw up, I'm sure you'll let me know!

    You'll find that. But you get used to being a mod quickly I found, just takes a little time. Welcome aboard man :) It's good having you as a colleague.

    So now we're taking orders from a squirrel? :confused:

    Seriously, congratulations, and good luck. I'm sure you'll be a great asset.

    Great now we're being lead by a squirrel and a wolf!

    Grats, Minstrel, I'm sure you'll perform at or near average! ;)

    Congratulations, and good choice. Even when we've disagreed on occasion, I've had to respect you. :)

    Seriously, I feel good about you being on the team.

    Is it congratulations or commiserations? When it comes to being a moderator one can never be too sure ;)

    Minstrel, congrats!

    I have seen you since you first joined the site with 'junior member' batch below your name. Yes, you are the newly elected local sheriff, someone from among us, and not a senator mod who dictate our lives from Washington (New Delhi, in my case) :) Parking tickets are okay as long as you give us reputations for good conduct.

    I like the wolf.

    And squirrels, think how much more attractive they are to people than their cousins the rats. Squirrels have bigger eyes. :)
