Somewhere over the rainbow
We've been lucky enough to snag another moderator for the team - user @rshrugged.

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.

Many of you have no doubt run across his helpful, friendly posts - he's contributed to discussions in a wide range of forum sections. We're very glad he's agreed to donate some of his free time to continue to contribute 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.

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.

Welcome aboard @rshrugged! :)

Thank you, Ann and everyone.

This is a special place with a bunch of members contributing in small and large ways to make lives better. Sometimes it's a simple problem that needs to be solved or a question answered. Sometimes it's complex. In any case, answers can be found here either through searching or asking. The membership inevitably comes through.

I'm happy to be a part of it.
