Retirement

I announced this to the other moderators a couple of weeks back. (And Jim before he joined us.)
After careful consideration, I have decided to step down and retire as a moderator.
This has been coming for some time now, but I have to admit to no longer having either the time or patience to continue moderating.
For the past few weeks I have been taking a back seat, and helping Jim to settle in.
I will still be hanging round the forums, and a member of the link:pug
If you are interested in volunteering as a moderator please PM one of the remaining moderators (Daniel Roger Barry) with a short text (no more than 8 lines) explaining why you think that you  would make a good forum moderator, as there are plans to run another set of elections in the new year.

Thanks for all the fish.
Jonathan

Re: Retirement

Sorry to see that you are stepping down but I appreciate these jobs are not meant to "last forever".  Thanks for all your work for the Community Forum and all the help that you've given Forum Members, both as a Moderator and in your previous "private" capacity! Smiley

Thank you for a great job, well done.
I know many people enjoy this forum and that would not be possible with the contribution of you and your fellow mods.
Have a long and happy retirement.
Seasons Greetings to you and Mrs Chilly

Re: Retirement

I've enjoyed and learned a lot from the forums since boarding the Good Ship PN in July, due in no small part to your excellent moderating.
All the best in your retirement Chilly.

Re: Retirement

Well, what can I say, other than thanks for all your efforts Jonathan. Your help in running the forums and the switchover from the old phpBB to SMF was invaluable.
You will be missed on the team, but fear not, the banter will not cease. There are still plenty of ways of cooking a penguin  Wink
All the best for the future.
