    New Moderators

    I am happy to announce three new moderators to our forum: Prelude, Ken Fitlike, and Dave_Sinkula. Congratulations and welcome to them all. We are glad to have them and thank them for agreeing to help out.

    They were selected by an nomination and election process by some of the boards’ senior members. I would like to thank those members for their help.

    I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Sean for his time moderating the forums. He will be leaving us for personal reasons for a couple of years. We are sorry to see him go, but wish him the best of luck as he moves forward in his life.

    Thank you to all of our moderators for their time and efforts. Alex and I truly appreciate the time you spend here. Thanks.


    If you're new to the boards, welcome and reading this will help you get started.

    Wow, congrats to the new moderators.

    [SARCASM]I'm sure I was a up there on that list to moderate the forums, but I appreciate your respect for my space and privacy and not picking me. I'm sure you believe you're missing out on my excellent judgement and calm, mediating tone,[/SARCASM] but I assure you, you are not at a loss with your three excellent choices.

    Seriously, I'm glad to see these three excellent contributors getting their deserved respect in this message board.

    >> Anyways congrats guys and girl. I know you will be a great addition to these boards
    They've been adding to the boards for quite a while, I'm sure that they've switched to something faster, like multiplying.

    Bad jokes aside, that explains my sudden confusion. Prelude's name became all boldy.
    "It... wasn't like that before?" Well the most polite way to get out of the trouble I writ myself in: みなさんおめでと!Congratulations everyone!

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    Congrats to the new mods.

    I'm sure they will continue the never-ending job of keeping this a great neighborhood to be in.

    Thanks to the webmaster, Kermi, the mods, and the members who make this a great place to hang your hat.
