Meet the "New" Mod

Post by dhodge » September 1st, 2012, 10:49 am

Hello to all!

We'd like to extend a hearty welcome to the latest addition to the Guitar Noise Forums Moderator Staff - Bish!

It's hard to believe he's been around the forums for close to (if not more than?) seven years now. But I think everyone will agree that he's always been a great contributing member of the GN community and someone who's always encouraging and supportive with his posts.

So please join me on wishing Bish good luck on this often invisible job (especially when we're doing it right!) of moderating the Guitar Noise Forums.

Oh, and pay no attention to those rumors about him (anonymously) donating his recent lotto winnings to the website in order to be considered for the post... :wink:

Peace

That usually means that either we're doing a good job or that everyone else is making our job unnecessary. In this case it's undoubtedly a bit of both.

Behaving is becoming quite boring. Perhaps I'll make Bish earn that high salary he just signed for and start some fights. :twisted: :twisted:

How about "Pick vs. Fingers"? :mrgreen:

Moderating can be a thankless job, so... thanks, Bish!

Thanks! With the current MOD line-up, I'm in very esteemed and professional company. I hope to live up to the standards already set.

Roy ....you have been banned to only Keetar and Drum forums. CYA!!! :twisted:

Oh, dear. A little power can go straight to one's head, can't it? :lol:

I love these boards because of the relative absense of that kind of drama, public bannings & all that. Y'all have kept it nice. Thanks all.

Just as an aside... the "dramas" around here seem to turn on the TINIEST points. Pick/fingers? .007s/.012s? Less filling/tastes great? (Old guy joke, sorry.) Do we all share some kind of musical obsessive-compulsive disorder that makes these things critical? (Or is it just me?)

Oh, no! No offense intended TR! That's a fine, upstanding American lager that's been around for a long, long time, so you're not NECESSARILY an "old guy"... not that there's anything wrong with being an "old guy"... :lol:

I love these boards because we don't have to dance around like that, not much, anyway.
