I come here often on a whim, and post as I wish. I've been doing so for YEARS. And although I've chatted with moderators, I've never really thanked them or given them credit for what they do. They are not paid, and they spend their time making sure that this forum remains what it is; a worthwhile place to be.

I'd like to offer a sincere "thank you" to all of the "moderators", "forum hosts" and whatever else they call themselves for the work they provide for us at this forum - I expect that it is a thankless task to have to deal with the likes of me (not to mention others :wave: ) and to spend their days and nights trawling through our rants, opinions, heartfelt cries, trolls, screams of derision, screams of rage, triumphalism, whining (whinging?) moaning, bitching, carping and despair. This is probably the wrong place for such a "thank you" - but I would be much obliged if you would give me the benefit of the doubt as a long-time member to subvert (slightly) the rules of the forum to place this where it should be - where all of you work. I'm a complete ass, so I appreciate, perhaps more than others the job you do, and the sacrifice that you make to do it.

:up: :up: :up: :up: :up: :up: :up: :up:

Thanks guys...





Now about those off-colour remarks I made about Lewis...  ;)


Seriously Guys - Thank you. :up:

(I've moderated a forum - much smaller than this - in the past and it's often a thankless task.)

What could I gain? Zip. If I slag Schumacher now, calling him a ("&$&&@##&&^%$#$$$$ Kr^#$" and a "*&##%$$£§¶") I know that the moderators will take my post, consider it and pass it on to the dumpster.

I gain nothing from this topic. But I have gained HUGELY by the presence of the moderators. - and I'd point you to my profile - I've been a "contributer" here since 1998 (note quotes). I've nothing to gain. If I did, i wouldn't have made the posting.

There is a separate forum for these kind of threads:

http://forums.autosp...php?showforum=1

Or were you being ironic by starting it in the wrong forum, thereby giving the mods some work to do. ;)

I'm aware - but it's not in"readers comments - and that is where "readers" post. This is the appropriate (to my mind) place for this.

Sorry, I keep forgetting sarcasm doesn't travel well across the internet unless accompanied with a painfully obvious smiley e.g. ' :rotfl: '

Was only joking :up:

Absolutely.

If you wish to see this as some sort of kiss-as# post, please ignore it - this is not about attention for ME (I can get that by slagging almost any driver) this is about appreciating the people who make this bb possible.

Yeah - I'm an arse.

But the mods aren't - and I'm not about to get kicked off and never (in 13 years) have been. If you think I'm trying to get ":attention" here, subvert me - give the attention to the moderators

Always a great job.

Let's do the moderators a favour - if you wish to slag me, there are loads of threads where this can be done. This thread is about the moderators and our appreciation (or not - your choice) of them.

I'm doing this because I appreciate the work they do - and as proof of this, I am going to do what I suspect they wish I would do in EVERY thread - butt out.

That said, why are the mods here not paid? Yes, I do agree the mods here are very good. But I have always wondered why a place like Autosport does not pay moderators.

Thanks to the mods :kiss:
