On behalf of the staff team, we'd like to introduce Slydude as the newest addition to the staff team as a moderator. His commitment to the community and his knowledge have proven to be valuable assets to Mac-Forums during his time here.

We look forward to his assistance as we're sure that he'll do an excellent job in his new role.

Thanks. Still getting used to the idea. The reast of the mods have things so well in hand that there hasn't been much to do.

Shall I register numerous spam accounts and put links all over the forums to give Sly something to do?

That won't be necessary I will be going back to work tomorrow so there will be plenty of things to keep me occupied.

Wait a minute . . . If you register the complaints against Van do I get to swing the bejjeweled baan hammer I have been building? :D

If you register the complaints against VanThat's...that's possible? What an absurd proposition!

"Productive"?

Always someone coming along wanting to be productive and make the rest of us look bad. :P

Oh we've all got a LONG way to go to be as prolific posters as bobtomay, chscag, and pigoo3..:)

Yeah talk about making the rest of us look bad. I would ask them to take a break and let us catch up but then someone would ask about connecting a Mac to some obscure TV brand and I'd have to scream for help.

It was either that or we would have to invent more stars to put on his MOTM badge. This way we retired his badge for the Moderator one. :P

Sly, some how I forgot to reply here! So sorry my friend. I consider you a friend. Welcome aboard. You are already proving to be a great addition to the staff here. Keep up the great work.

Fortunately for me our membership is pretty much composed of upstanding citizens who are just looking to be part of a nice online community. I bet if you polled the other moderators you'd find the biggest troublemaking it from online spammers. I rarely get to swing the ban hammer for that - other mods beat em to it most of the time.

For the past five or so years spamming on forums has become real bad issue. I had a few websites a few years ago (eight to be exact) and spam was a serious issue. I finally cut back on it by creating a security code (not available at that time for forum software) to help minimize all the spam. It worked pretty good. It did not stop it completely but made a heck of a difference. So if you mods are deleting spam like I was man I feel for you, what a pain.
