I just want to express my thanks to Ivar and the other moderators for the way they keep this forum such a great place to hang out. In particular the fine judgment used to keep things friendly. I was just watching a thread deteriorate into positional arguing and it got closed down at just the right moment. Obviously a great accord amongst the team. Congratulations to you all.

Well, I guess thanks to @movinmaggie for bumping this thread. @Kanga has joined the moderators since she posted this back in April 2014. She may well have a further comment to add now she is on the other side of the fence. :confused: I for one am glad to have her on board along with @peregrina2000. Its good to have some female mods again, its good to have a wider geographic spread of mods again.

We do what we do. Out of love for this forum and what it means to us; out of love for the camino and what it means to us.

I've been, rightly, trashed for the occasional immoderate post. And I've picked up a few 'likes' when I've got 'it' right. Anyone who thinks we exist in some exalted plain, anyone who thinks we think we exist in some exalted plain has got it plain wrong.

This forum is one of the best I ever participate in. It "does what it says on the tin" - its a place for sharing.

I sincerely meant that first post when I wrote it. It's an honour to be asked to join the august company. My wish is but to serve in the best way I can. Let's hope that my diminishing memory and mind is up to the task.
Now I know what 'bumping' is. I just saw the post about the moderators and responded; I never noticed the date is was posted.

I would like to join all the others in thanking the Moderators for keeping this site level-headed and a pleasure to visit.

Extreme opinions, prejudices and deliberately provocative statements are, thankfully, swiftly removed before people have time to rise to the bait and respond in kind.

Well done Mods and thank you for all your efforts and your ever-present watchfulness.

You serve, Kanga, you serve. As do all of the mods for their thankless work.
And Tincatinker...perfectly and very modestly said.
I think what all of you moderators do is remarkable...I wish we could all be together at one time and in one place on the camino so we could all offer each of you a decent evening's meal with beverage of your choice!
Perhaps enjoying a funny story or two along the way about the nightmares of moderating...
