Now there's a brave man!!

Hope Dog has schooled you on the finer points of wielding the ban hammer. I'll congratulate you now whilst your sanity is still firmly intact......I'm not holding much hope for it after a few months of trying to keep us riff raff in line.

Good bloke. Good choice.

Not sure if congratulations or sympathies are in order but I'll go with the former for now ;). Thou art a braver man than I to put up with this bunch of hooligans (myself included) but I know you'll do a great job!

Congrats!

Thanks all!

I'm on the forum throughout the day, and look forward in particular to deleting the increasingly frequent spam posts - and those hit & run users - before too many people have to see them. I'm already being notified of all reported posts and will look into those as well, as they may be in threads I haven't read.

Thanks Bernhard and Thomas for your faith in me, I'm happy to lend a hand!

Those who know me as a mod on Drumsmith for the last 10 years know that I have no problem warning and banning someone if they're deliberately and repeatedly disruptive. But I typically ran that by Ronn Dunnett before doing so, and will do the same here unless the infraction is egregious.

That pretty much sums it up for me Caddy. Congratulations Jon!

But wait Andy, now you'll have to find nice things to say about concert toms! Ah well, I've managed to sidestep Bernhard's "don't bash Ringo" rule to date, so I'm sure I can handle the stress :)

Jon, do you have a coast near you? ;)

Good! Some of the posters have made it so I'm just reluctant to post anything as to not get yet one more battle over the same topic started.

Perhaps there needs to be a Venting board where people can have it out with each other.

Also - I saw your update on Cymbaholics recently... The number of cymbals you have... Wow.....

Well, consider that there are over 43,000 registered members, with 20-30 new members signing up daily. That's a lot of people! Sure not everyone posts regularly, and there really aren't that many posts to report. But when something does stick out, several people will report it. So if I get 9 or 10 notifications, they'll likely pertain to just one or two posts. That's not too bad, given the amount of people who participate or lurk on a daily basis.

....and I saw Weird Al interviewed this morning on TMZ and he was asked if offered would he play the halftime show at the next Superbowl Game. he said yes, if offered. So maybe if we put it out there we can get it done. Why not. A little humor, fun, at the halftime show that the whole family can enjoy. let's get it done.

The (non-music related) site I moderate has over 85,000 members and 10 times the daily traffic as here. I always think of this place as the relaxed, laid back msg board I go to to escape the drama. LOL.
