    Please join me in welcoming a new moderator to our ranks! The new volunteer, who is an experienced member of our community, will assist users, enforce forum rules, and help us set site policies.

    Our new moderator:

    Weaselboy joined MacRumors in 2005, and lives in California.

    The goal of the administrators and moderators is to keep the forums enjoyable and useful for both forum members and site visitors. Enforcement of the rules is based on twin goals of consistency and fairness.

    We're glad that this outstanding forum member, whose helpfulness over the years you may already have noticed, agreed to join our moderation team and continue his service to other users in an official role. We are grateful to all of our moderators for their assistance to the site and for accepting so much responsibility on your behalf.

    Welcome, Weaselboy! :)


    The selection process

    The selection of moderators is a slow, careful process. We start with recommendations from the current moderators, looking for users with the right personality and instincts: helpful, friendly, rational, fair, those whose participation has consistently been a benefit to their fellow forum members. These we choose excel in many ways and are well-suited for the role we ask them to take as moderators.

    Good choice. Weaselboy is one of the most helpful members here. And, perhaps just as important, he seems immune to drama.

    Congrats, Weasel.

    He is a valuable member of the site and has done an excellent job in helping people. I have no doubt he will be a great moderator.

    Well done Weaselboy - I have always enjoyed your posts and your posting style, however, I am surprised it was not me! (not; just joking ;))

    Edit: Is there any reason why I cannot access the forum leaders link in Ann's post?

    It was disabled last year after the hack on MacRumors and remains only accessible to staff members. She must have forgotten about the restriction when she posted it the other day.
