Global Moderator appointed: Big_kid

Postby AstroAustin [OP] » July 9th 2010, 4:31pm

Our current global moderators are engaged in real-life obligations that take away from their time here. They get online as much they can and we appreciate the efforts they do make to support the site; however, in their absence there are times when additional help is needed. As such, I would like to announce the designation of our newest Global Moderator:
Big_kid :banana-tux:
Image

Big_kid is a long time member of the site with an innate ability to always keep a good attitude. I think this qualifies him for the job. Big_kid has the all the qualities we can all appreciate in a moderator: he is helpful, peaceful, and he knows his way around vehicles.

Please show your support and consideration as he adapts in this new position.
