"New" face in town

LinefinderLinefinder ModeratorPosts: 4,546 Senior Member
On behalf of Conchokid (Administrator) and the moderator team, I'd like to announce the following.

After many years on the job, Wambli Ska has decided to retire from his duties here as Moderator. He has pulled yeomans duty here over the years, and we will greatly miss his work ethic and dedication to this board. We wish him all the best in all his future endeavors.

As is often the case, some change brings more change.

I am pleased to also announce that Ernie Bishop has accepted the role of Moderator. Ernie brings a wealth of knowledge, experience, and wisdom to this board. I am sure in his new role those attributes will continue to shine.

Welcome aboard, Ernie! I hope you like herding cats.  

Mike

    Thank you for your efforts as moderator Wambli. It cant have been easy dealing with the motley crew that make up the membership here and your guiding hand was very much appreciated by me.
    All the best for the future brother and keep in touch.

    Congratulations for your appointment Ernie.  I wish you well in your duties.


    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    Excellent choice IMHO, hope Wambli stops buy, tell Conchokid he needs to get his post count up too.

    Well that's a punch to the gut! I though Wambli would be here forever. :/

    I hope he still comes by from time to time as a regular member.


    Welcome Ernie! Of course, you know everyone by now.... ;)

    I'm not sure how this works but...
    I certainly hope this is not the end Wambli as I know you on the forum and hope that you continue on as a major contributor 
     Cheers for helping me out more than once. Thanks. 

    Ernie,
     Read every thing you've posted [I think] over the last few years as I also like a longer range but confident shot. Pistols are beyond me
    Glad you have come aboard.

    Welcome as a moderator Ernie! Now maybe you'll share a lot more of that long range shootin' stuff since ya gonna be herding the cats here on a regular basis. And remember, it always gets dark right before it goes totally black!

    Last time I saw Wambli's profile it said banned so don't think we will hear much from him.
    I think he did a great job in his endeavor here during a rough time.
    Ernie hoping the job here goes smoothly for you.

    I wondered why Ernie would agree to moderate this place so I hacked into his home security system at the time Concho 'asked' him to take the job................

    So, guess it’ll be like having the archives restored?  Admin says it will be so, but it doesn’t actually happen?....  :open_mouth:

    Congrats to future Ernie.  B)
