MOD CHANGES: It's been a pleasure to moderate the TNG forum, but...

... "All Good Things" must eventually end.

I thought I'd let you know that I'm going to be imminently retiring as TNG forum mod. Thank you all for making my job very easy over the years!

I've been thinking about stepping down for about a year, and with the release of the S1 blurays next week, it seemed the perfect time to hand over the reins to a new moderator. I can guarantee that you have an absolutely top-notch mod taking over from me, and I hope you'll be as generous in your patience with them as you have been with me.

I'll let T'Bonz make the announcement of who the new mod actually is in the usual way when she has a chance over the next day or so to pull the software levers that make it official.

But I wanted to let you guys know first that it's happening. I'm not leaving the board or anything dramatic like that so I'll still be posting as usual. You can't get rid of me that easily.

Thanks again for all the fun; here's to more of it as a non-mod!

Re: It's been a pleasure to moderate the TNG forum, but...

Its me, its MEEEEE! OK, I'm not really THAT excited but I must admit that TNG is my favorite Trek series. Holdfast has raised the moderator bar very high with his wit and wisdom. I won't even try to step into his shoes. Instead, I'll tiptoe in wearing my own bunny slippers and try to keep the peace, handle the contest stickyswitch (I love that term) and do other mod stuff. When I get a bit more time, I'll tell my story of my initially reluctant acceptance of TNG and how it grew.

Please bid fond farewells to brother Holdfast as he sails into the virtual sunset.

PS: In a blatant abuse of outrageous Mod power, Let's make this tread a Sticky for ten days or so.

Bonz can still be quick off the mark pulling those levers when she wants to be. Yes, indeed, please welcome the Mutai Sho-Rin as your new TNG forum mod.

I'm no longer green... wow, it's been a while...

Enjoy your "retirement." I'll bet it wasn't easy being green.

Thanks for all you did Holdfast. Glad you're sticking around.

Welcome to what I'm hoping will be a much more exciting forum beginning next week Mutai Sho-Rin.

Thanks for your service, Holdfast (yeah, I know, sounds like you were in the Army, Peace Corps, or something), and welcome over to TNG to Mutai Sho-Rin.

Careful now; next you'll be suggesting Bonz filled the role of Miss Piggy...

Yeah, there was a "the wind finally changed, huh?" crack or two in the BR when I announced I was leaving, too. Very appropriate.


PS. flattered and blushing that you stickied the thread Mutai.

As someone whose been the very fortunate recipient of your good graces and humor, I'm sorry to see you go Holdfast. Glad you're just stopping the moderating and not leaving the TrekBBS. I'm not letting you go that easily, I still expect to see your humor in the TNG Caption This on a regular basis!

Mutai Sho-Rin, congratulations on your Promotion to Defender of the TNG Forums and Moderator Extraordinaire. May our threads be fair, informed and hilarious!
