Exclamation A new addition to the BA forum moderator team

We would like to introduce a new face to the BA mod team. Zol has now joined us and will be receiving moderator training here for a few weeks before moving on to his permanent assignment. During his training he will be taking actions on the forum so we wanted to let you know what is going on.

Please share your welcome wishes to Zol

Cheers,



Prospero
on behalf of the BA forum moderator team

Welcome!

Appears the BA board is the lions den before going out to pasture in somewhere a little more on the quiet side...

Welcome Zol,

I look forward to being told off by you

Will this mean we're not allowed to slag off EK on here any more?

Welcome Zol!

Jam first, cream on top is the 'proper' way to do it. Although I will NEVER understand why, and can't bring myself to do it that way. Cream is like butter, and scones are like toast... Jam, on butter, on toast: like everywhere else in the world. I can already see how the 'bloody foreigner' (ME) is causing a stir among the British...

Let the flaming commence!

People I'm dining with- they say 'would I put the butter on too of the ham on a sandwich?'

Hello and welcome ZOL.


This really has nothing to do with you... but are you the sacrificial lamb???


Can you please introduce yourself and give us your credentials..

Coming from a diplomatic background... and very recent diplomatic background, we need to see and verify your credentials before giving you the honor....then once approved, you have to hand us your papers and kneel before us.

Hold on for a second... Khalid is a gulfy name... and how could a gulfy be a mod?
