Hello all,

Looks like it's that time again. I have two people joining the team, and likewise that means we're letting two people off the hook. (Jim Scott is like "Finally!" lol)

This time it is both James Sotherden and Jim S. getting the reprieve. Jim S. was the reining Modsquad length-of-time champion having come in on 10/20/2009! Poor guy really needs a break. Thank you Jim for staying with us for so long. Please report to the Berkeley psychologist's office for your mandatory post-mod screening.

And thank you James Sotherden for all your help in maintaining the forums. James is another that has been with us a while, starting on 8/16/2011, and has definitely had his share of joy on the modlist!


Coming onboard will be Lynn, giving us the female perspective, as well as Guy, rounding off our team with an excellent representation of views. As always, go easy on the newbies until we can get them broken in! :-)

I had to look at that date twice, nearly four years. Blimey :) See you around the forums Jim and James, thanks for your help in my early days and later.

Lynn and Guy, welcome to the nuthouse that is the mod squad, to the left is the padded room and to the right is the bar :)

@Uli - Fred's tab


However, as ever there will be a small party hosted by the cafe for all mods past and present. This will occur shortly after one or other of the new mods.....
