    I have been seeing a few old timers with new badges.

    Gary Frieder
    johnhutchison
    TonyE
    Gary Swanson
    Francois Caron
    Andrew Lockton

    Badges well deserved.
    I love cats, but I can not eat a whole one.

    My congratulations to the new moderators!

    But why do we have to learn this from a German sheperd instead of out of the horse's mouth?

    I've been wondering what happened to our heretofore procedure of making an announcement in what used to be Lounge Matters. Mine has been a slow observation from looking at the colors in the Online Users screen!



    Belated congratulations and good luck to the "new guys!"

    Growing pains? The previous admins viewed the selection of moderators as more akin to a celebration of contributions to the community. The current management appears to reflect its business background in taking more of an "HR" approach to it. (We're still unpaid, though, that hasn't changed.) I'm sure the pendulum will swing again.

    And, while we're talking about new Moderators, the silence is deafening about the "bait" that was thrown out to Windows Secrets paid subscribers that they could become Moderators here. I haven't seen a single one and I don't know if that's good or bad... I'd be less than honest if I didn't say that in the past week or so I've seen some posts from "new Loungers" that looked like outright campaigns for Moderator ribbons, so I've been watching the "Your Moderating Team" link recently to keep up.

    Ya, I heard that they were going to triple the wages and give us a 50% annual bonus!

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    I came over from Windows Secrets and am still catching up with all of the topics.

    Having been a moderator for an exceedingly less active forum, I can only imagine the generous dedication of time, effort and diplomacy required to keep up with this one; I would not want the responsibility of that task here! Many thanks to those of you who are willing to step up and keep it all running smoothly.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    I, too, came over from WS. I have to say in all honesty that this forum has proven to be both challenging(very knowlegeable crowd) and a learning experience. Working this board has been a breath of fresh air. It's keeping this tired old, slightly damaged brain up and running...just what the doctor ordered!

    Congratulations to you all! The time and energy you've put into "The Lounge" over the years really shows. You have a great little community here, and I hope that I can be a part of it for a long time to come!
    Mike
