Exclamation So long, fare well, it's time to say goodbye

Well not entirely - how could I give up FT?! - but I am stepping down as a moderator.

I had to look back to see how long I had been a Communitybuzz! moderator - over six years How the years have merged into one, dos have come dos have gone... hangovers, dramas, arguments, flamefests (not too many of those thankfully!), competitions threads, birthdays, marriages, births and deaths. Oh, and N830MH's birthday - how could we ever forget that? And moving threads. And moving threads. And moving threads. While Travelbuzz! might get the highest number of misposted threads in a year, we do come a close second!

I've had great fun moderating and I hope assisting the members and do organisers in ensuring Dos on FT are a real asset of FT and that this forum remains one of the friendliest and welcoming places on FT. Even if that has to be enforced at times

I hope there will be plenty of dos I can get to in the future - but in the meantime, thank you for being a pleasure to moderate and for having a strong (and generally correct) sense of knowing what is 'right' for on here and letting us know when it isn't. And to my co-mods too -without them, the work would have been an awful lot greater

'Thank you' hardly seem to say enough though it'll have to suffice until we meet at a future Do and I can buy the first pint and say more in person.

Thank you, Jenbel, and my apology to those sleepless nights queued by my non-stop RBPs.

You shall be missed (as a Cbuzz mod). I guess you can run but you can't hide on FT. Since you will have more free time afterwards, have you given any thought about the annual election in November?

Thank you for your great service. I for one know what a thankless & busy job moderating can be,(Not doing it now ) from doing it on another board. As others have said enjoy your extra time.

Of course we've had our share of disagreements, name calling, etc. but one thing we both agree on is your dedication, hard work, and loyalty to FlyerTalk. Thank you and best wishes!

As already pointed out, you're suddenly going to have a lot of spare time at your disposal! Many thanks for all the unpaid (and at times, I'm sure, insufficiently appreciated) work over the years, and enjoy your new-found freedom!
