I've made some changes to the Moderator team. Gay3 has come on board to help out. Wortel and Voyager have been retired from the team, in order to give others a turn. Thanks so much for your efforts guys and see you on the forums as "normal" members.
 
If anyone is willing to give it a try, please let me know. Don't be offended if you don't meet the acceptance criteria :)
 
Please pay our moderators the respect they deserve.
Regards
Mayor

It's brilliant Embarrassed, I'd forgotten to thank you, must say, it'd save so many unnecessary posts, particularly those made on the iphones as those ppl appear to be spelling nazis LOL

Hope people won't get suspended if they suggest the Ballarat track is #*! awful and that most of the trainers there are even worse.   Tongue

Obviously wasn't mine then LOL. Dynasty Ark, 3 EM got the run on a bog & beat BMS o/o job with Cathy Payne up at 100/1 Tongue. Yes, she is by Ark Regal!!  12/9/2000 in case of disbelievers LOL

Runfer, we're all entitled to our opinions, for better or worse but you've no fear of offending this mod as I tend to agree on both counts, tho' a little less harsh than you on the 1st one LOL

Good luck Gay3.

I just couldn't keep doing it anymore. My patience ran out lol

Thanks to the mayor for all the opportunities to police the joint and keep it clean. I think the community is now thriving though there is a small population of posters that can get abusive without warning and they need to really think about why they're even here if they're not in the right frame of mind.

Cant you guys read above ? - Wortel said he'd had enough. He's done a heap of largely unappreciated work around here for a long time, and mostly done a very good job in the circumstances.

Thanks VSP.

I know at times we didn't agree but I really respect the time and effort you've put in here.

Giving it another go I realised I was not getting enough out of it anymore and maybe posters were sick of my style.

If modding here was not helping my forum experience it was time to give it away.

That's not to say the forum doesn't need those dedicated to cleaning the place up, it just can't be me anymore. I've done my time and I've moved on.

In no way was I shafted. The mayor has always been more than fair with me and has given me a great opportunity that I really appreciate.

Good luck to the new mod team. Clap

Well Wortel, I think you are very hard to replace for the dedication and time you have put in - and who knows, maybe with a freshen up you may feel like returning to the fold!

I haven't always agreed with Wortel's Mod style - but he is one of the too few people here who do not abuse others as a form of response. He has dedicated many hours & mostly done a good job. Until you have Moderated through one of the kindergarten sessions that you guys can turn on you would not appreciate how time consuming, frustrating and upsetting it can be. There have been many times when I wanted Wortel gone as a mod because he had caused a problem among you guys, but equally there were many times I have appreciated or needed his assistance. None of us are perfect Mods, but we try to do the best we can, Wortel included! That is not insincere, it is very sincere. It is also not flattery, it is a statement of fact.

Sometimes the visible presence of dealing with troublemakers was needed.

We tried not to let it get to that.

Very sorry if I've banned you before Noccy. I'm sure I did just don't remember when, you see it's not really that personal with me. I was banning people I thought were being abusive, rude and generally disgusting. There are many posters that want to exhibit this behaviour but now think better of it and for that we can Smile

The person we loving refer to as Bip/oddsonbet etc etc...

Is someone here .. A normal member or is friends with a member here, as everytime they join up...( ten times a day ) they are communicating with someone here via pm .

You know who you are, why do you insist on paying this childish game ?

Guys, expressions of interest please to moderate Joffs & General. PM myself or the Mayor if you have the time & inclination Big smile
There is the possibility of closing these forums altogether which I know would cause a large void for most of you who contribute to them.

Maybe you should explain or clarify what you meant by that reference Tiger.

Pretty bad if it is what it looks like.
