I am grateful and appreciative of all of our moderators for their assistance to the site and to their fellow members/users/visitors, and for accepting so much responsibility on your behalf. Welcome, Blaise, Lilley, titus, and Justus! The selection process The selection of moderators is a slow, careful process. We start with recommendations from the current moderators, looking for users with the right personality and instincts: helpful, friendly, rational, fair, those whose participation has consistently been a benefit to their fellow forum users. Those we choose excel in many ways and are well-suited for the role we ask them to take as moderators.
