We are losing them at an alarming rate. This is not good! We are getting less and less people who we can make fun of without them using their special powers on us. Not good at all! ;D

Oh, congrats by the way. :)

08 to 11 isn't really years, but 6,600 and 10,000 posts sure are worth more than 10 years' experience!

Good to see dedicated members like that as moderators.

That's 3 years, maybe you count time differently where you're from? :P

There is lots of things that go on behind the scenes that I had no idea that was going on until I became a mod.

"Ignorance is bliss," or so they say. :P

Well in the literal sense, 2 years can be years, but when I hear the word "years," I think really long time.

Actually that's very true cause my e-mail alerts go off every time there is a report. :P

Real world moves too fast. :(
Earth =

69,361 MPH Spin and Orbit
43,200 MPH Towards Lambda Herculis
15,624 MPH Perpendicular to Galactic Plane
446,400 MPH Orbiting the Galactic Center (or Galactic Spin Rate)
-------------------
574,585 MPH Speed of Earth within Our Galaxy

That is 924,704 KPH or
256.8 KM per Second roughly.

SO you're saying 256.8KM a second is too fast?

I agree totally. I am an ex-moderator of a few forums. And yes it's fun, but also has some work attached. But it's rewarding work and makes the places you moderate better for it.

And those places, I simply chose to leave cause either not enough time free to do the job properly or in the case of one forum I wanted to spend more time enjoying the place and less time moderating it.

The fun in it, is seeing everyone enjoying their time here. Or in Mac-Forum's case leave satisfied their Mac questions are answered and they are full of the latest news. That done then we can pat ourselves on the back and say a job well done.

I thought I heard struggling at one point, but I thought someone was on the toilet, particularly schweb. I'll be more observant, next time.
