New Mod - story

Please welcome our new Other and Religion/Politics mod, story. story has always been someone who's posts I've wanted to read personally and I'm glad that he has accepted the offer to help out in the Other and Politics forums. You may reach out to him if you have any issues (as you can with any of the mods). Welcome to the mod crew story and thanks again.

Re: New Mod - story

I noticed this yesterday and wondered if something would be announced. I'd offer a congratulations, but I'm not sure that's fitting considering the forums you are overseeing. How about best wishes!

I'd say I couldn't think of a more deserving forum member, but I'm not sure if that will sound right!

Re: New Mod - story

Wow, thank you for the very affirming thread!

Thanks to Vin and the rest of the admin/mod team for the vote of confidence and the invitation to serve. From what I can tell so far, wow, they really do their best and it's a job that can be hard and thankless. I have a much deeper appreciation for what mods and admins do now and will try my best to follow suit. Hug a mod, people, they're working hard for you!

The only thing I think would be helpful to add about me and how I read the site is that it matters less to me "what" you write and more it's about "how" you write it. We disagree? Okay. Great, even. You're pushing buttons on purpose and trolling? Yeah, that's not going to work for me. Never has. We're better than that. If one can make your point without coming off as a jerk, people will be more inclined to listen. That's my hope for all of us: we value "how" we write to one another as much if not more than "what" we write in the first place. When we value "how," it's no longer about being right ("what"). It's about mutual respect in the marketplace of ideas.

Friends, I've been here 18 years (19-20, if we count preregistered lurking) and this place means something to me. I'll do my best to do my part to keep it healthy, keep it kind, and keep it fresh. Thank you for your patience with me as I learn how to step into this new role and try it on for size. Here's to 18 more years (and beyond!) here!

And now, Stan Bush's "The Touch."

Dang, the thread title had me hoping for an interesting behind-the-scenes tale about choosing a new moderator.

Oh well, congratulations, story!

You know me, I'm a mystery wrapped in an enigma.

In my opinion, story is a level headed individual who can be fair. That's the main reason I was in favor of making him a mod. Sorry, short story.

Re: New Mod - story

I appreciate the compliment, though you skipped over my Thunderdome battle with Giles. Two mods enter, one mod leaves!
