BobbyK new admin and moderator

Postby Combat Controller » Tue Jan 05, 2016 4:25 am

BobbyK has been helping out behind the scenes for years (a decade maybe?) and has recently volunteered his time to help clean up the forums, upgrade, and fix the wiki. He also is the one currently holding (and paying the renewals) on our domains until I get the trust organized (more on this later and why its not a non profit). Because of all this he has been promoted to Administrator and Moderator. He's a great member of this community (as you all are) and I would just like to publicly acknowledge thank him for his continuing contribution.

Big round of applause for BobbyK!

So all in, 13 years! Since the name changes but the community has stayed the same I think that counts.

So does the new guy get to WECSOG-up his own ban-hammer, or is there some standard version of Mjolnir that gets bequeathed on his ascension?
