    Howdy,

    *waves*

    These are awkward things at the best of times, so I shall just launch into it in my atypical fashion.

    I have the sad duty to announce that, by the end of the weekend, Qui-Gon_Reborn will be stepping down as Moderator for the SWC. In the meantime, I shall be looking for a second Mod, if we should require one, however other Mods will pass by in the interim so there will not be a great deal of difference apart from the colour scheme i.e. it won't be quite so garishly turquoise henceforth.

    That's the status quo in the short-term.

    In the long-term, it remains with me to wish her a fond farewell as a Moderator, and thank her for her assistance over these years, and to remember her, with you all, and her time as Mod.

    Any questions, you are welcome to field them to me. :)

    Never really talked to her much but it is always sad to see a good moderator step down, hopefully she can find the time to hang out as a disgruntled oldbie.

    I've a few questions if I may.

    1. is she retiring permantely?

    2. does this forum really need 2 moderators anymore? since the forums aren't accepting new users atthe moment, and we're all close friends in swc

    3. I get nervous when there are new mods as they might not be familiar with my posting style and irritation with typing that can show in my posts.

    Don't worry Sistros, I'm sure Sinre will find someone close to home to look after us all :)

    QGR, it'll be sad to see your hidious, vomit-inducing choice of mod colours leaving the top of the boards :p
    Seriously though, I had a feeling this was coming since you're pretty much at the 'school or die' part of life that we've all either faced or are yet to face. The bit before University where the grades are pretty damn important. It happens to us all. But there is life at the end of the tunnel. I know, I've been there.
    So good luck with school, and keep popping in so we can keep you all (in)sane.

    Once a regular of the SWC, always a regular of the SWC.

    was that a hint elinith ;):p


    if not I hope so, I'd also like someone new, not a pre existing mod, that mods 3 other forums already.

    But I have a feeling it will be Skiara OR NYCITYGURL

    Well I'm sad to see QGR go. I am confident that new Mod will fit in. The SWC is welcoming to all.

    I don't have much to say except thanks for the kind words, the memories, the explosions, and the cardboard cutout weddings. And I promise not to be a stranger. [:D]

    I'm retiring for a while, meaning more than a short time, less than a long time, and probably not forever. And I wouldn't worry about the new mod (if we have one; I don't know if we necessarily will) misunderstanding your posting style. We have plenty of interpreters on hand if necessary. :p

    Yeah, I've tried to hold on as long as possible, but it was becoming inevitable. It's great to know people who've been through it, though, because it almost lets me believe I'll get out of here alive. :p

    Certainly. :)

    1. QGR has that one for you.

    2. At the moment, perhaps not. Eventually we will be moving though, so it may be a decision that requires a rethink.

    3. Well, not to worry, in that regard, Sistros. We have a few Mods who pass through here on occasion, such as NYCitygurl and Skiara, and they have not commented upon any such thing in their wanderings. If we did go for a new Mod, it would (ideally) be from within the community. :)

    I understand that in these times, there must be immediate action.

    I hope you're not leaving the boards forever QGR and we still get to see you around. You were a great Mod- diligent, fair and quirky :D

    I'll never have as much stamina as you, Ree. I don't know how you've stayed in charge of the NJT all these years. :p

    Curse you, Nat. You had to choose one of my favorites. :p

    QGR was among the first people and mods I met when I first arrived here! :_| Not to mention she adopted me as a youngling!

    I hope it's not too late to say that I'll miss her...my adoptee and first Master...
