I want to announce that Lurch has decided to step down as a site moderator at Auszcar. Lurch has been doing the role for several years now and being a mod is often a thank-less job. I want to take this opportunity to thank Lurch for all the work he has done over the last few years which includes:
- Moderating discussions on a daily basis - it's not easy keeping up everything that happens on the site (believe me I know)
- Flagging spam and removing spam posts - You'll notice we don't get lots on the site and when we do it's gone quickly. This keeps the sites content quality high (which everyone benefits from)
- Identifying posts that are suitable as sticky and benefit the community as a whole
- Helping rally up the troops and organise events and technical workshop days
- and much much more....
Often being a moderator means you have to take a hard line when users start to get into heated debate and flame wars. You'll never please everyone in such situations and it can be a tough role. I believe Lurch hasn't decided to leave the community rather step back from a leadership role for now. So with all that said, thank you once again Lurch.
PS: At the moment I haven't looked at Lurch's successor . This is definitely something I will consider and I've already had a recommendation but will follow up on that shortly.
If there are any questions, hopefully that's something Lurch can address for you?
