Global Moderator appointed: Matrixx

Global Moderator appointed: Matrixx

Postby AstroAustin [OP] » February 1st 2009, 4:08am

I would like to announce the designation of our newest Global Moderator:
Matrixx :banana-tux:

After the recent resignation of our esteemed colleague, gtkane, there became the need to appoint a new moderator to keep things flowing smoothly around here. I've observed Matrixx's enthusiasm and aptitude since he joined the site back in January of 2008. I feel that he is more than qualified to do the job and possesses the qualities we can all appreciate in a moderator. He is levelheaded, knowledgeable, and evenhanded and I am proud to welcome him to the team.

Please show your support and understanding as he settles into this new position. Thanks everyone!
:obscene-drinkingcheers:

Thanks everyone for the kind words.

Back in 94 when I arrived onto the internet scene, I have been given Administrator and Moderator positions over the years and I do know how difficult it can be to keep a site up and running. Astro Austin has done a great job here to help continue this passion we have for the Astro Safaris when the Old Icon board collapsed.

I'm honored to accept the Moderator position here because I believe in what this family based site stands for and the help it truly provides to people around the world. I'll be looking forward to working along side Astro355 as he has done (and continues to do) a great job in helping with this passion we all have. I will miss gtkanes help and knowledge he had here, but I do understand how life and priorities changes things over time.

Again, thanks very much for the kind words everyone, I will do my best to continue this passion we all have.:)

Congrats on the promotion Matrixx. A well deserved corner office overlooking False Creek with unlimited hooks and blo paid for by a grant from our government's go green innitiatave (wow, that's spelled wrong)

Kidding aside, thanks for the quick response to my problems. You clearly know these trucks inside and out and, with my latest howl at the moon, you saved me coins by knowing what I wish I had known. I owe you a few drinks and, if you were local, I might actually even consider living up to it. CHEERS.
