Global Moderator appointed: chevymaher

Postby AstroAustin [OP] » January 24th 2012, 4:07pm

At the recommendation of myself and the members of the staff, I would like to announce the designation of our newest Global Moderator:
chevymaher :banana-tux:
Image

After being nominated, voting, and counting up the yeas and nays, the green light was given to bring Randy (chevymaher) on board to help us keep the site clean and organized. Randy joined AstroSafari on November 12th, 2010 and hasn't logged out since :rofl: . He spends nearly every morning perusing the site and has a significant breadth of knowledge when it comes to vehicles. We're happy to have him on board and can't wait to bombard him with new tasks, information, buttons, knobs, switches, and responsibilities. Stay tuned for his resignation! :lol:

Please join me in welcoming him to the Global Moderator group.
-AstroAustin

Sorry I missed the voting process. I say hell yes. He brings a lot of humor and lightheartedness to the site. Not to mention that he gives good advice.

Excellent choice. He brought me over from "The Dark Side" and I have been happy ever since. He's got his head bolted on tight. He's one of those open minded people who can see past the bullshizzle and follow his gut.

Congrats Randy!

I fully agree that this is a great move.

BUT, when does he start his nationwide tour where he stops and visits all the members? I want to put in a request that he visits NYC in the spring when I am swapping my leaf springs.

And Randy, after you give advise, you have to follow it up with "The great and powerful Oz has spoken!"
