A warm welcome to the new members of the MDF Admin team

Post by Blackadder43 » Sat Feb 10, 2018 2:34 pm

As most of you will have seen we advertised for some new Moderators on the forums to help keep up with the workload, and keep the MDF the friendly and great place that it is.
We had a lot more interest than we had anticipated, and we have now narrowed it down to the 3 people we felt best suited for the positions
We would like to thank ALL that applied and especially for your kind words.

I wont bore you any more but would like to give a warm MDF welcome to:

Sound choice, and I hope all forum users will lend the new mods their support to what can at times be a thankless task.

Well done to all those selected ... but its a double edged sword me thinks ... with more mods on the scene I guess I'll have to keep my head down for a while ... as well as back track on all those tongue-in-cheek jousting matches of yestermonth!!! Just gotta hope they dont hold it against me!!! ::g ::g ::g ::g
